Want to get out of London? Just charter a superyacht…

by Laura on August 8, 2016


You’re coming to the end of your stay in London, or maybe looking for something to do before you arrive. So how can you make the most of the rest of your holiday? Charter a private yacht, of course…

The Wellesley, one of London’s 5-star boutique hotels, has just launched a second private yacht, available for charter. You can now combine your stay at the hotel with a cruise around the Mediterranean in the summer or the Caribbean in the winter.

Despite the order in which they were launched, The Wellesley’s first yacht is called MY The Wellesley II, while the second is MY The Wellesley.

The new yacht is larger than the first, at 56m compared to the first boat’s 32m. It sleeps 12 guests in 6 cabins, and has been fitted so the interior mirrors the 1920s glamour of the hotel.

Each cabin on the yacht is en suite, with bespoke furniture. The brochure says that interiors are a “seamless extension of the hotel”. The impressive Master Suite has panoramic sea views, so you need not get out of bed to see the ocean. There’s also a VIP Suite plus a double cabin and two twins, which can be converted to doubles. Onboard bathrooms are expansive featuring Italian marble and Hermès amenities.

There’s also a Main Saloon, ideal for afternoon tea and a Club Lounge for enjoying a cigar, which has a connected outdoor smoking deck.

For eating, there’s a dining room and two vast outdoor dining areas too. Up on deck, there’s more than 40 metres of space on three levels. The sundeck features a spillpool, surrounded by a comfy “crash pad” area. There’s also a BBQ grill and bar, plus an outdoor cinema.

If that’s not enough, the Beach Club offers boats to take guests to shore, an inflatable jetski dock, two jetskis and a waverunner. There are also inflatable kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, a slide, and two underwater F5 Seabobs to play with. Of course, a yacht like this doesn’t run itself. There’s a crew of 12 to take care of the guests’ every need and even an onboard massage therapist.

It might not be in London, but The Wellesley’s yacht charter service is a great example of how many of London’s luxury hotels go above and beyond to cater to their guests.

Just don’t even think about it unless you have very deep pockets…
