Expedition yachts for charter

While the majority of charters prefer to take their charters somewhere warm and sunny (typically the Caribbean in the winter and the Mediterranean in the summer), an increasing number are looking for a charter with a difference, and the charter companies are catering for these adventurers by offering explorer yachts in unusual locations.

Explorer yachts are boats specifically designed for tough conditions, for covering long distances, and for being completely self-sufficient. If you’ve always wanted to explore the Aleutian islands, or the Sea of Cortez, then chartering an explorer yacht is probably your best bet.

In terms of facilities, explorer yachts tend to have/need less deck space than a conventional yacht, but will have a comfortable and sumptuous interior. Some are built to “ice class” standard, allowing them to venture into areas where normal yachts cannot go, and all will be able to be self-sufficient for weeks at a time.
