Yachtworld Experience


The standard superyacht photo is of the side of the boat, but I love this shot from beneath the bow of the 175-foot Feadship Hurricane Run. The smile on the charter guest’s face is priceless as she enjoys her version of Leonardo DiCaprio’s “king of the world” moment in Titanic. Her expression is the luxury cruising version of that, perhaps because it’s better to be the queen. Views From Luxury Charter Yachts: Part Two November 25th 2014. Cruising vacations are priceless. Join Kim Kavin as she tours the world in the second part of this photo essay.
Curacao is one of the ABC Islands, along with Aruba and Bonaire, at the very bottom of the Caribbean Sea. Few charter yachts go there, and this one, Domicil, was trying to be the first to lure luxury guests on a year-round basis. This photo was shot off Klein Curacao, a tiny, uninhabited island between Bonaire and Curacao proper. The color of the water is as mesmerizing as the young woman’s smile. Views From Luxury Yachts: Part One November 19th 2014. If you add the weekly base rates together, Kim Kavin's enjoyed well north of $1 million worth of cruising vacations. Come see what she's seen.
