VIDEO: Superyacht ‘Here Comes the Sun’ in the British Virgin Islands

By Katia Damborsky   27 June 2019

Amels’ 83m/272ft superyacht ‘Here Comes the Sun’ was spotted enjoying some tropical sun in the British Virgin Islands earlier this year.

The Caribbean season may be behind us, but Here Comes the Sun is reminding us what’s in store for the coming year. 

The 2017-built charter yacht was filmed at anchor in Virgin Gorda, in the midst of turquoise sea, powder-sand beaches and the polished granite boulders of The Baths.

This tranquil spot marked a great spot for the motor yacht to show off her expansive toy chest, which includes Jet-Skis, water-skis, an inflatable slide and numerous other state-of-the-art accessories.

Launched by Dutch shipyard Amels in 2017, the yacht sports interiors from the highly-esteemed Winch Design. Her exteriors meanwhile have been penned by the equally reputable Tim Heywood, creating an impressive harmony between her indoor and outdoor styling.

She boasts accommodation for up to 12 guests in 10 cabins. This includes a huge owner’s deck with 300 square metres of space.

The motor yacht is committed to outdoor living, with a large pool on the main deck that can be seen sparkling in the sunshine in the above video. She also hosts a mammoth beach club, complete with extensive spa facilities which includes a sauna. 

Other on-board highlights for guests to enjoy are a sundeck spa pool, gym facilities and a sumptuous cinema room.

While Here Comes the Sun has ventured out of the Caribbean’s cruising grounds, she will no doubt be back again for winter. 

A yacht charter in the Virgin Islands promises unparalleled natural beauty, with plenty of world-class dive spots where yacht-goers can get up close to an enormous variety of aquatic life. In the BVI’s, the coral reefs are home to around 400 species of brightly-coloured fish, as well as turtles, starfish and conchs. 

On shore, expect lively culture and a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle. There are plenty of secluded beaches that make a great setting for a beach picnic, and scenic hikes snake along the islands’ shores and forest-covered terrains.

Connoisseurs of gastronomy will find themselves perfectly at home on a British Virgin Islands yacht charter. There are plenty of restaurants serving everything from upscale fare to rustic local flavours, with fresh Anegada lobster laced in butter and fried conch fritters on the menu at most venues around the BVIs. 

The food is best enjoyed washed with local rum on the beach. If possible, find a beach bar and you can expect some truly dazzling sunsets at the end of the day; the region is renowned for them.
