Ultimate luxury vs adventure
Once you’ve seen the Riviera and the popular parts
of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, then what?
Increasingly, UHNW individuals want to contrast the
experience of 5 star luxury with that of adventure.
Since yachting allows the customer freedom of the
seas, they can decide where to go – and when.
Within Europe, newer yachting destinations such as
the Eastern Mediterranean are becoming increasingly
appealing. Similarly there is a growing desire for access
to even more remote locations such as the Galapagos,
Antarctica and Asia.
As a result the number of explorer vessels and even
yachts with ice-breaking hulls is increasing. Similarly,
the number of long range vessels allowing for voyages
across greater distances has increased. Numbers of
ancillary craft is also rising to facilitate the storage of
additional sporting materials such as diving equipment
and providing extra accommodation for guests.
“People hanker after what’s newand exciting.
Where haven’t we gone yet? What canwe
do, as opposed towhat we have done, is
the biggest thing. What is there other than
just the so-calledmilk run in theMed or
the Caribbean. Let’s start travelling further
afield, seeing newdestinations, newplaces.”
