If the idea of being in a remote location away from the current happenings on land sounds appealing, consider an expedition SuperYacht as your method of escape. With 5-star facilities that most luxury resorts in the world can’t compete with, you can head off the grid in style while embarking on an epic adventure around the world. Best of all, SuperYachts have limited contact with the public, impeccable cleanliness, and the ability to stay away from high-risk areas.
Few of life’s pleasures compare with the luxurious experience of chartering a SuperYacht, where the stunning scenery changes every day, gourmet cuisine is delivered to you without the need for a reservation and an on-site crew is attentive to all your wants and needs. As Covid-19 continues to limit mobility across the globe, these four ultra-sleek SuperYachts remain available for charter (or expedition) – up to months at a time.
The mammoth 254-foot Legend was built for travelers in search of adventure, offering all the facilities needed for arctic expeditions, including submersibles, snowmobiles, and helicopter operations.

Guests can get the most out of their vacation with its large toy collection, while a 16-person main deck Jacuzzi and Balinese spa with a sauna and massage room invite you to unwind after a day of exploring. Accommodating a whopping 26 guests in its 13 individually styled suites, guests can stay entertained in the 14-seater cinema, enjoy an informal barbecue on the main deck or sip cocktails at the outdoor bar.
