Sun, sea, sport and adventure – a luxury yacht charter is the perfect family vacation. Creating memories is what family holidays are all about, and a private family yacht charter is an experience that you and your kids will remember forever.
A yacht charter with kids is an opportunity to relax and have fun in a world of complete privacy and unrivalled luxury. The kids (and the big kids!) will adore the watersports on offer-whether it’s tearing around on a jetski, being pulled behind the yacht’s tender in a giant inflatable tyre, learning to scuba dive or exploring underwater on one of the sea-bobs. Some yachts even have big waterslides and Jetlevs to fly over the water- meaning countless hours of fun and games for the kids (and long leisurely lunches for the parents.)
A family yacht charter is long days of exploring and snorkelling and diving off the swim platform into the deep blue water. It’s the kids dressing up as pirates for a treasure hunt around the yacht, following clues laid down by the ever-attentive crew, and fishing off the aft deck at sunset. When night falls, it’s time for luxury barbeques on the beach, Jacuzzi parties on the sundeck, or all piling together onto the big sofas in the sky lounge, cuddling up together to watch movies or play one of the yacht’s many onboard games.
More than anything, the kids will love waking up in their very comfortable cabins each morning to look out the porthole at a new and exciting place! Private family yacht charters will excite the kids, show them new experiences, tire them out, and make them laugh- who could ask for more? What’s more, it will do the same thing for the adults! A yacht charter with kids really is the best possible family vacation.
Here are our recommendations for three yachts which are just perfect for family yacht charters.
164’ (50m) charter yacht AMARULA SUN is a superb choice for a yacht charter with kids because of the extraordinary range of water-toys onboard, as well as the brilliant movie and games library. The yacht has a huge inflatable waterslide, 4 wave runners, a Jetlev (those incredible gadgets that shoot you high over the water) and 2 Sea-Bobs to let you explore underwater- and of course a great range of snorkelling, scuba and beach sports gear. Your kids will be in great hands during your yacht charter as Amarula Sun has a young, professional and energetic crew.
When it’s time to relax there’s heaps to do onboard- there’s an 8 person Jacuzzi on the sundeck, TV and sound systems on all decks and even a player piano and fireplace for family nights in. Amarula Sun is also beautifully designed with a stunning interior- and the kids are well catered for with a big twin cabin with 2 extra Pullman bunks if needed.
Amarula Sun cruises in the Bahamas/Florida during the summer, and the Caribbean in the winter season – meaning that there are a huge amount of opportunities for fun in the sun!
For those wanting a private family yacht charter in the Mediterranean, it would be hard to beat 163’ (49.68m) charter yacht BROADWATER. The owner of this yacht has young children, and has done everything possible to make this yacht a home away from home for families- meaning that the yacht is comfortable while retaining her wonderful elegance. The yacht has plenty of water-toys to keep everyone happily occupied on the water- with 2 wave runners, paddleboards, wakeboards, sea bobs, snorkelling equipment for 10 guests, Brownie Lungs, and also the superbly named ‘Water Blob’-(which, in case you were wondering, is a giant water mattress for jumping on and blobbing about).
This yacht’s particular strength for families is the fantastic beach barbeque set up- The crew does an brilliant beach BBQ with sun loungers and shade awnings, where they set up a bonfire and bring all the water toys out for a day of fun and games-and brilliant food by the chef, of course!
Back on the yacht there’s a gym and a deck Jacuzzi, while the sky lounge is the perfect entertainment hub with a game table, and large plasma TV with surround sound and multi region SAT/TV with Kalidoscape A/V, movies, music, book libraries, board games and IPOD docking station.
Last but certainly not least, we’d like to recommend 80’ (24.4m) charter yacht THE PEARL for family yacht charters with kids. The yacht’s captain is a dive instructor, master fisherman and skeet shooter, and the yacht carries dive, fishing and skeet shooting gear onboard as well as paddleboards and tubes for towing behind the tender. A father himself and very active, the captain ensures that there is a huge amount of exciting and new things for the whole family to do.
This yacht is a perfect size for a small family, and is affordable at $28,000 a week. THE PEARL winters in the Caribbean and summers in the Bahamas/Florida, meaning this yacht is an ideal choice to charter out for American families who would prefer to stay closer to home. As well as the 2 generous king cabins, there’s a twin cabin where the kids will find themselves very comfortable.
A yacht charter with kids offers an extraordinary opportunity for families to relax, reconnect and have fun together. Affording complete privacy, unrivalled service and an exceptional range of entertainment, a private family yacht charter is simply unforgettable.
