Offers + Last Minute news

By Steven Mandaluff  4 August 2020

The luxurious 55.47m/182ft superyacht ILLUSION I is available to charter in Egypt’s Red Sea this September, giving you a once-a-lifetime chance to charter a yacht in the region without having to pay delivery fees.

With more than 2,000 kilometers of thriving reef, teeming with all kinds of marine life, the Red Sea is quite simply a world class location for diving.

The opportunity to charter a yacht in this region is rare, and the yacht’s home port will be Jeddah so you’ll be well-placed to discover all that these cruising grounds have to offer.

With her expansive deck areas for relaxing, socializing and soaking up the sun, ILLUSION I is the perfect superyacht to experience the wonders of a Red Sea yacht charter.

With over a thousand species of fish living beneath the surface of the crystal clear waters, the Red Sea is the perfect luxury yacht charter for any diving enthusiast. Explore the myriad of reefs, blue holes, atolls, wrecks and lagoons to see rays, octopus, turtles and hundreds of fish unlike anywhere else on the planet. 

Visit Ras Mohammed National Park for the most amazing coral formations, or the famous Dahab Blue Hole, a vertical cavern that experienced divers will love. Encounter the rare Oceanic Whitetip Shark at Elphinstone Reef or dive with the endangered Dugong and giant Green Sea Turtles at Abu Dabbab.

The area also offers some amazing wrecks, such as SS Thistlegorm, recognised as one of the best dive sites in the world. The SS Thistlegorm is a 128m World War II ship, sunk after a German air attack in 1941. Holding two tanks, army trucks, jeeps, motorbikes, rifles and more this is a chance to dive within a piece of history.

Stepping onto dry land and there is just as much to explore. From wonderful restaurants, exclusive bars and upmarket shops to extraordinary architecture, characterful souks and a melting pot of culture.

Hidden in the desert you will find abandoned villages, historical fortresses and lush oases, making any trip on land full of surprises. You can also enjoy camel rides and flights to the iconic Egyptian sites of the Valley of the Kings and the Pyramids.

After a busy day of exploring sea or land the expansive main saloon is a wonderful place to retire to and sink into the many snug seating areas. Enjoy conversations about your day, or simply take advantage of the generous bar and high-tech entertainment centre with a 42-inch plasma TV screen.

The cosiness of the main saloon is enhanced by the Bannenberg & Rowell interiors which contrast light and dark tones for a warm and inviting atmosphere. 

A generous swim platform acts as a beach club with steps making it easier to get on and off the selection of water toys, which include two jetskis, two seabobs and snorkelling and fishing equipment. There is also gym equipment on board the motor yacht.
