From fine dining to island hopping, being perfectly prepared for your luxury superyacht voyage is all about packing the right things in your suitcase. MY Starfire, a 178′ superyacht available for charter in both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean Sea, is one of the most delightful superyachts to take to the seas, with elegant cabin suites, a premier sundeck for watching the watery world pass by and Captain Sputh and his silver service team at your beck and call, you will want for nothing when exploring the far-flung world.
Take a look at these tips from Captain Sputh to help you bring the best and always to look well pressed when it comes to stepping out in superyacht style.
For the beach
Sipping a cold beer in a hammock in the beautiful Bahamas, racing across the waves on a Jet Ski in the mild mannered Mediterranean or diving off cliffs overlooking the Greek Islands, luxury superyacht vacations are bound to have plenty of beach time. When selecting the best swimwear for lounging peppered with adventure you need to keep it simple and understated. Dark colored designer swim shorts, supple leather flip flops, Gucci shades and thin white cotton shirt to slip over is sure to serve you well,
For a workout
Keeping your fitness in fine shape doesn’t need to stop when you take to the seas on a superyacht. Hitting the gym, teeing off for a round of golf or taking a jog along the shoreline are all great ways to stay fit. Opt for loose fitting, breathable sweat pants or classic snug workout trousers paired with black tanks and a light cotton hooded jacket for cool down.
Pale linen blazers paired with white pants is always the perfect ensemble for dinner with friends on board a superyacht. Informal dinners ashore can call for tan linen trousers, a white linen shirt and a casual cable knit sweater for the walk. However, if you love a new trendy designer item such as a burnt orange blazer or a funky hat, bring them with you. Remember, it’s your charter therefore you determine its style.
For a special night
Whether it’s hitting the casinos, attending film premieres or world class cocktail parties, you want to look the part. Be sure to press and pack your finest designer suit tailored to streamline your shape and look distinguished. Opt for cotton rich dress shirts, comfortable yet classy shoes and just a flash of your Swiss watch to complete the look.
When it comes to exploration on the sea or land, khaki shorts can become your best friend. Trekking through virginal rainforest, watching seals splash offshore and climbing some of Europe’s most accessible coastal rock formations calls for practical clothing that doesn’t compromise on style. Khaki shorts will keep you cool and have enough pockets for stashing goods, cool white tunics will keep you covered, and a solid pair of shoes is a must. This style can also be taken out of the wilderness and into the city streets.
