You can have ACCESS to the planet’s last remaining FRONTIERS One of the most compelling reasons for spending time aboard a yacht is that you can have access to some of the last remaining frontiers on our thoroughly charted and surveilled planet. In this issue, we’ve been rounding up a number of the most thrilling and intriguing charter destinations, including perhaps the most thrilling and intriguing of all, Antarctica, which is about as off the grid as you can get without recourse to a nuclear-powered submarine. But you don’t have to push on to the ends of the earth: the Balearics and the Greek Islands also offer some unspoiled and engaging cruising areas. Whatever your tolerance for adventure, there will be something for you starting on page 19. We’ve also been on…

AVIVA A&R’s new flagship The 98.4-metre Aviva - the largest yacht built by Abeking & Rasmussen - left the German yard on her maiden cruise in May. She’s the fourth yacht launched under the Aviva name. The striking exterior is the work of Reymond Langton Design (which created the previous Aviva at Abeking & Rasmussen a decade ago), in collaboration with Toby Silverton. The blue hull and vertical bow are eye-catching features, with the shaped elements of the superstructure in metallic silver creating a strong contrast of light and shade, and taking some styling cues from automotive design. The yard says the powerful-looking hull is the result of extensive research and testing to ensure superior seakeeping, as well as a 20% reduction in drag and benefits for fuel consumption. Her top speed…

GREENLAND Why go? The world’s biggest island and also the world’s least populated country - the unspoilt natural wonders of Greenland offer the adventurous cruising yacht some magical opportunities. Getting there There are a number of private jet airports to choose from, although it’s not far to cruise from the North American mainland. What the experts say "Nobody goes to Greenland for the cuisine unless you happen to like musk ox (incidentally pronounced ‘moose cock’ by the locals). Or for the shopping, unless you want to stock up on Danish marzipan. So why have we gone to Greenland for the past three years in a row? It’s because this is where icebergs are born in fjords that dragons should be flying by. Where a polar bear may climb aboard and where narwhals, unicorns…

The yacht is an EVOLUTION of a HAPPY place There’s something about having a yacht named after such a catchy tune that really elevates the on-board experience. Every so often the riff pops back into one’s head and the happy melody pervades the corridors and bursts into open rooms. The 83-metre Here Comes The Sun is an evolution of a happy place, the 65-metre Imagine (now called Infinite Shades), and the two owners came together once again to create an arena for their friends and family to relax and enjoy themselves in. "The yacht is definitely a floating home. That was the concept and how the owners wanted to feel. The living spaces were very much planned for the two owners, how they both live and how they both want to be…

The 2017 MYBA Charter Show was held in the Spanish city of Barcelona, at One Ocean Port Vell marina, and SuperYacht World was once again a sponsor of the MYBA Superyacht Chefs’ Competition. Held across three days of the show, the chefs were tasked with creating a three-course meal, with the challenge of including seafood incorporating saffron, fish with rice, and a ‘no sugar’ dessert. The judging panel was of an extremely high calibre, and included Antonio Mellino, the two Michelin-starred chef of Quattro Pasi who has been a longtime supporter of the competition. Micail Swindells, who has worked in many of London’s finest Michellinstarred establishments and was a winner of last year’s competition, was also judging, as was Rafael Zafra from Ibiza-based restaurant Heart. Finally, Fran Agudo from Tickets and…

Dinner with Roger Federer, anyone? Or perhaps some tips on your golf swing in a one-on-one coaching session with a Green Jacket winner? Maybe an intimate fine-dining experience or a unique concert from a major recording star? These dream days out are just some of the recent experiences enjoyed by members of the NetJets fractional ownership scheme. The NetJets fractional ownership model has plenty of benefits for the regular and irregular flier who wants to avoid the hassle and cost of full private jet ownership, but there’s also some surprising benefit, too: members of the NetJets club have access to a host of special events curated by NetJets itself. "Our clients are wealthy and of course can access mainstream events very easily, so our aim with these events is to provide a…
