SuperYacht World - - Editorial -

From mem­o­rable per­sonal mo­ments (sur­prise birth­day fire­works, a mag­i­cal en­gage­ment party dinner), to en­coun­ters with na­ture in stun­ning lo­ca­tions (swim­ming with a brace of friendly dol­phins), the cap­tains we’ve been talk­ing to this month have been cre­at­ing unique char­ter ex­pe­ri­ences for their guests. You can read all about what they have been up to in the past 12 months from page 45 in our My Char­ter Year fea­ture. It’s a re­minder that a vi­tal el­e­ment of the amaze­ment and the sheer sense of free­dom that char­ter par­ties feel is in large part down to some care­ful cu­ra­tion by the cap­tains and crews.

The two own­ers we’ve been in con­ver­sa­tion with this month know a thing or two about cre­at­ing the per­fect on-board ex­pe­ri­ence. The owner of the CRN At­lante (page 68) wanted a yacht with­out com­pro­mise, which ex­plains this 55-me­tre’s dis­tinc­tive ex­te­rior styling, but only hints at the chameleon char­ac­ter of a yacht that has so many op­tions for guests. Our cover star, the 63-me­tre Benetti 11.11, has an owner who came to the project late, but set about cre­at­ing the ideal yacht for cruis­ing with his fam­ily. You can see how he tri­umphed on page 22. If there’s a les­son to be learned from the stel­lar char­ter yachts and the two won­der­ful new pri­vate yachts we fea­ture in this is­sue, it’s that each time you step on board, a won­der­ful new ex­pe­ri­ence awaits.
