Lots of waters, white sandy beaches, display of wealth all around and a wide variety of food make it a must-visit place for any tourist. For those who want to enjoy it all in style and comfort, while also taking it a level higher, is to explore remote areas in a private yacht.
They cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the level of exclusivity and luxury you opt for, but offer an escape to a paradise-like wonderland. To retreat from the hustles of the daily grind, it is a perfect getaway available offering comfortable and memorable experiences.
Renting a charter yacht means employing world-class chefs, sailing through clean waters along gorgeous landscapes, and experiencing diverse cultures. Considering all the amenities that charter yachts offer, here are the 5 best yachts available in Southeast Asia, in no particular order.
Lady S / Lady E
This is a 224-feet yacht offered by Burgess which is made by Amels Holland. It features 5 decks, hammams, spa, massage rooms, and chefs. A full feature gym and a 13 ft pool complete the amenities of any definition of luxury. Water fun equipment is available in full range in the form of hoverboard and trampoline.
A motor surfboard is also on board for adventurists. It has one of the largest luxury suites in the world to show off as well, and costs almost 4 times the normal luxury yachts at about USD 500,000 per week excluding expenses and taxes.
Classis Phinisi for a large family or group of friends, up to 14 persons, can be rented for a weekly rate starting at $109,000 per week from Camper and Nicholsons International. This is the lowest rate possible because winter is usually off-season, but the rate is always tentative as it may be revised in the busy weeks, coinciding events and other such demand parameters.
Any possibility of the yacht being rented for more is added back to the cost that applies to the user.
