By Katia Damborsky   19 August 2019

The 86m/282ft sailing yacht AQUIJO is available to charter in the South Atlantic islands of Ascension Island, Tristan da Cunha and Saint Helena.

A rare yacht charter opportunity to charter in the most remote region on earth has become available on board superyacht AQUIJO this October. 

This autumn, she will be exploring the volcanic island chain between South America and South Africa. 

The sailing yacht is primed for intrepid charter guests looking to get off the beaten track while still living in the lap of luxury.

AQUIJO is the world’s largest ketch, and offers a variety of modern amenities combined with high-performance sailing capacity.

Scattered across the South Atlantic ocean lie the islands of Ascension, St Helena, Tristan da Cunha and the aptly-named Inaccessible Island. 

Ascension Island is the largest island, and is located the furthest north. 

It sits on the tip of an undersea volcano, and is home to fascinating lava plains, white sandy beaches and a subtropical climate year-round. 

A marine reserve encircles the island, creating abundant opportunities for diving and underwater exploration. The vibrant underwater ecosystem includes green turtles, whales and sharks. Sportfishing is also highly popular, but only in select areas.

Set adrift from Ascension is the island chain of Tristan da Cunha, which is known for being the most remote inhabited island in the world. It is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an important breeding ground for a number of endemic bird species. 

While chartering a yacht around the island, guests should step on shore to experience incredible walks, breathtaking views and a look at life in one of the most inaccessible places on earth.
