Luxury Yachts Charter Experiences

With an expert gourmet chef aboard, every superyacht charter is a culinary delight, and your chef will take great pleasure in preparing dishes for you taking inspiration from local delicacies and using the finest local produce. Depending on your itinerary and location, experience the wonderful cuisine and fine dining to be found on shore turning a superyacht charter into a gastronomic adventure.

Some of the best restaurants to visit on a yacht charter include El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain, which is a short sail from Barcelona. This restaurant combines traditional Catalan ingredients with free-style cooking using some unusual techniques. Another, is the Mirazur in Menton, France, where Mauro Colagreco, the Argentine chef, serves up innovative French cuisine. Dine whilst admiring an incredible view out to sea that stretches all the way to the horizon. If you’re chartering in Asia, the Gaggan in Bangkok is a restaurant not to miss – regularly voted the best in Asia, chef Gaggan Anand reinvents Indian cuisine for diners at the restaurant in his 19th century Colonial townhouse.

Fine dining on a superyacht charter must surely come with a waterfront view, and restaurants offering such along the French and Italian Rivieras, the Balearics, and the Greek islands, are abundant.

One of the finest French establishments is found at Cap du Eden Rock in Antibes. The Eden Roc Restaurant is run by the great gastronome, Arnaud Poette, who takes his daily inspiration from nature’s beauty, and the freshest local bounty. Leave the superyacht at anchor and arrive by tender at the hotel’s private pontoon to enjoy the view from the restaurant terrace sitting atop the sea-sprayed rocks.

If your charter itinerary takes you to the Amalfi Coast, then call in at the famous Il San Pietro in Positano. Overlooking Praiano and the coast, Il San Pietro’s Michelin-starred restaurant maintains Italian gastronomic tradition with the addition of a few modern twists, largely using produce from its own organic gardens. The luxuriousness of San Pietro and the spectacular setting of this 1970’s built property on the cliff face belie what is, at heart, a family operation – the five-star service comes with a smile.

However, don’t overlook the traditional tavernas and trattorias of Greece and Italy. Often tucked away amongst the maze of lanes that surround a harbour, these establishments are a cultural experience as well as a culinary one. The food will be fresh, locally sourced, and honestly priced.

For a more immersive experience, try one of the underwater restaurants found in the Maldives. The SEA Restaurant at the Anantara Kihavah Resort sits on the ocean floor and offers guests 360° views of local marine life. Various corals and sea fans cover the reef and sharks, turtles, triggerfish and trumpetfish can be seen from the perimeter tables. Similarly, the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant at the Maldives’ Hurawalhi Island Resort offers an underwater fine dining experience in its panoramic tunnel, seating just 16 guests at a time. Sitting 5.8m beneath the surface, don’t be surprised to see manta rays, tuna fish, sharks, parrotfish, turtles and snappers as you tuck into your Kobe beef.
