Superyacht Information Directory
A Superyacht is typically an expensive privately-owned, professionally crewed boat. Superyachts became popular at the beginning of the 20th Century when they started to be built for personal pleasure by wealthy Americans. Today, Superyachts are synonymous with luxury and celebrity.
Statistics show the amount of time spent on Superyachts worldwide will increase by 25% in the next 5 years. The maintenance and annual costs of running a Superyacht is considerable, which is why having good agents and management companies are essential to help with this process.
The Atlantic Ocean has the largest charter market in the Caribbean with yachts docking in various ports doing maintenance and/or waiting for guests to board. Antigua is one of the main docking points and plays host to the very popular annual Charter Show.
The accommodation on a Superyacht usually consists of en-suite cabins on each level of the yacht, with the uppermost level typically belonging to the owner of the vessel. Superyachts have everything a terrestrial abode would have, if not more. From swimming pools, jacuzzi’s, diving boards, dining rooms, gallerys, studys, fully-equipped kitchens, satellite communications, helicopter pads etc. a Superyacht has it all - even inflatable climbing walls!
The crew required to operate and be part of the super luxury yachting culture needs to be highly trained and efficient. The number of crew on-board any Superyacht is dependent on the size of the vessel, how many guests travelling and whether the yacht is being used for recreational, transporting or business travel. Superyachts are maintained by crew all year round. There are agencies which help owners of Superyachts to recruit the perfect staff to take care of their prized possession.
