You know how the old saying goes: the journey sometimes its own reward. While most would undoubtedly include places like the Maldives, the Mediterranean and the South Pole on their must-travel bucket list, you can make the experience even more memorable by chartering your very own superyacht to take you there in style and comfort. And since you’re chartering an entire ship and crew all to yourself, every journey will be tailor made to your destinations of choice – no unnecessary waiting needed.
Simpson Marine boasts a stunning range of over 150 yachts to fit every destination, traveller and itinerary. Experienced sailors can opt for a bareboat ship that they can take wherever they wish – but if you prefer to sit back and relax on your holiday, fully-staffed yachts that range from speedy catamarans to grand cruisers are also readily available.
Founded in Hong Kong in 1984, Simpson Marine plays host to a wealth of experience in the yacht charter industry. Since then, they’ve helped people from around the world plan unforgettable yachting experiences like no other – and with dozens of experienced staff members covering every aspect of the yachting industry, Simpson Marine is well-equipped to help their clients plan their very own journey of a lifetime.
Pick from a range of suggested itineraries that run the gamut from French Polynesia’s most gorgeous islands, or cruise along the idyllic West Mediterranean coast, hitting luscious European hideaways like St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco along the way.
The 14-day journey to the South Pole is undoubtedly one of the more unique charters available from Simpson Marine, with the journey taking you around the inimitable Antarctic Peninsula. Get close to colonies of Emperor Penguins, be awed by the scale of the stoic icebergs, and navigate amongst the caldera of an active volcano – you’ll get to see the best of the region with a luxurious yacht to call your home base. ◼
