World’s largest charter yacht FLYING FOX now open for bookings in the Indian Ocean

By Katia Damborsky   25 October 2019

You can now cruise the Indian Ocean on board the largest charter yacht in the world; the incomparable 136m/446ft motor yacht ‘Flying Fox’

Scattered across the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles and the Maldives are two of the lesser-explored gems on the winter yacht charter itinerary.

Synonymous with clear blue seas and powder-sand beaches, both archipelagos offer a yacht charter experience completely unlike any other. 

It seems only fitting that FLYING FOX, a yacht defined by her epic proportions and incredible selection of on-board facilities, will be chartering in the region this winter.

Delivered earlier this year by Lurssen, Flying Fox is a masterclass in engineering and design. She sports exterior styling from the esteemed Espen Oeino, paired with soothing, spa-style interiors courtesy of British studio Mark Berryman.

Her relaxing ambience is created through high ceilings, lush foliage and textures including blondewood, leather and Jerusalem stone. Her interior themes are particularly evident in the main salon, which stretches across two floors and benefits from a wood-burning fireplace and a formal dining arrangement for up to 22 guests.

Luxury accommodation

The motor yacht is PYC-compliant, meaning she has the unique capacity to host up to 25 guests on a luxury yacht charter. 

Accommodation is offered in 11 cabins, each of which has access to a private sea terrace for an uninterrupted connection to the ocean.

The principal charter guest can take full advantage of the expansive owner’s apartment, which enjoys an ensuite, private beauty room and second wood-burning fireplace that lends the space a cosy feeling. 

Alfresco living

The Seychelles and the Maldives

The islands of the Indian Ocean are steeped in beauty and nature. 

The Seychelles is famed for its Jurassic-like interiors, which are awash with wildlife and dense jungle. Be sure to disembark your yacht and explore the nature reserves and parrot forest at Vallee de Mai, and then be sure to head to the iconic, postcard-perfect beach of Source d’Argent, with its towering granite boulders and sugar sand beaches.

Having a yacht also makes it easy to access Curieuse Island, a destination well-known for its rust-red earth and huge population of Aldabra tortoises.

Those looking to cruise further afield to the Maldives will be welcomed to an oasis of blue. The necklace of islands is made up of 26 natural atolls and hundreds of small coral islands and reefs that are primed for discovery and adventure.

The islands are a surf-lovers’ paradise, and play host to countless restaurants, luxury spas and resorts.
