With the new year rolling around what better resolution to make than the completion of a truly outstanding yachting wish list? From learning to sail, to trying some water sports, to enjoying some yoga at sunrise, this list is the definitive guide for the discerning charter guest.
As more and more activities become a part of the luxury charter experience, the list of things to do is truly infinite.
In this feature, our experts hand select the best of the best to enjoy on your luxury charter vacation in 2016.
Yoga at Sunrise
To find your inner peace and tranquility this year, why not unfurl on a yoga mat alongside a certified yoga instructor at sunrise. For instance, the timelessly styled 82ft/25m motor yacht ALMYRA is currently available for charter and offers its guests a generously sized outdoor deck area in which to enjoy some morning yoga.
Similarly, the stunning 215ft/65m charter yacht LAMIMA provides yoga instruction along with its impressive range of traditional Indonesian spa treatments.
Of course, for those already familiar with the art of yoga, the only thing left to decide is whereabouts in the world is best to practice. Perhaps the Caribbean in winter, Singapore in the summer, or the Maldives in autumn? With the soft sounds of the sea lapping against your yacht, you can be assured that you're never far from total relaxation.
Try Some Fishing off the Deck
Whilst you’ll never be stuck for views to take in, and exceptional climates to enjoy when lounging on a sundeck, the ability to get stuck into some world leading fishing is not be missed.
To get the best possible fishing experience whilst on your luxury charter, it’s definitely worth considering yachts which were designed with this precisely this purpose in mind.
For example, the high performing 138ft/42m sport fisher 'Forty Love' comes with all the latest fishing equipment necessary for amateurs and enthusiasts to get the most out of the rich marine life around its cruising waters.
Likewise, the lavish 130ft/40m motor yacht ‘Mea Culpa’ has a firm commitment to catering for guests who want to help reel in their own dinner. Ideal for unwinding as well as fishing, the vessel comes complete with the latest entertainment facilities.

Learn the Art of Sailing
Whilst there’s every reason for guests to simply kick back and take in the views whilst on board a sailing yacht, captains are keen to introduce the art of sailing to those enjoying a charter. Whether it’s taking over the helm or getting to grips with knots, captains will be only too happy to teach their party.
Delivering quite possibly the greatest experience yet is the multi award-winning 289ft/88m sailing yacht 'Maltese Falcon'. Built by Perni Navi, the vessel has a highly elaborate interior which provides a great retreat after a brief lesson.
For those interested in heading to South East Asia in the new year, the sleek and contemporary 220ft/67m sailing yacht VERTIGO recently announced it will be available for charter in this region throughout 2016.

Try Your Hand at Some Water Sports
Available both at anchor and whilst cruising, water sports in many ways define the luxury charter experience. Whether it’s surfing during your time on an island or being pulled along on water skis, there’s so much to try whilst on your vacation.
Kayaks, jetskis, and Waverunners prove that there’s so much more to a charter than being on board a yacht.
Recently announcing availability for charters in the maldives this winter, the 71m/233ft superyacht TITANIA would make the perfect beginning to the year. Offering all of the latest watersporting apparatus, the yacht is the perfect choice for guests keen to get out on the water.
Another yacht which places a great emphasis on water sports is the 164ft/50m motor yacht WHEELS. As well as including one of Brownie’s innovative Third Lung systems, the vessel offers a Waverider and seabob for guests to enjoy when they’re done having fun on its moveable water park.
