Do you want the riveting experience of sailing, or maybe for your first charter you would like to board smaller superyachts with a group of friends? Whatever you have in mind, the following suggestions can help you have the best first experience with entry level superyachts.
Boasting a striking, futuristic exterior designed by Germán Frers, Perfection offers a compact size and entry-level charter rate which is ideal for first-time charterers. While her shallow draft and smaller measurements make this nimble yacht ideal for cruising secret coves and hidden gems, she is also equipped with amenities normally found on larger superyahcts, such as zero speed stabilisers and a 4.45 metre tender.
An extremely flexible layout with interiors styled by Design Unlimited can comfortably accommodate a variety of guests, from small groups of friends and families to couples on a romantic holiday. Other highlights on board this Baltic yacht include a large fold-out swimming platform and al fresco dining options with space for sunbathing on the sundeck.
