We are often asked if a luxury yacht holiday is suitable for families with young children. At Y.CO, many of us first went sailing before we could walk, so we know from experience that yachting can be a fun, safe option for any family holiday. Below, we highlight some of the best yachts for families and young children.
The 78m luxury motor yacht TV offers everything you’d expect on a superyacht of her size. We particularly like her for the cinema on main deck that can be converted into a children’s playroom (that’s if you can get them to stop watching the films!). Email us for more information.
One of our favourite luxury sailing yachts, 67m Vertigo was built for an owner with young children, so everything on board is child-friendly. She has a safety net to create a pool off the swim platform as well as dinghies and kayaks. Her crew are accustomed to cruising with kids and know how to make things fun, safe and informative (there is even an onboard classroom!). And her chefs definitely know how to get kids to eat their greens. Email us for more information.
Lürssen’s 60m motor yacht Arkley is a really fun choice for kids and the young at heart. She is a registered PADI diving school with 2 qualified diving instructors and also has a water slide and swimming pool. The real highlight comes after sunset though, when the sun deck’s vast sunpad converts into a stage, complete with professional karaoke. Email us for more information.
M/Y SEQUEL P
This 55m luxury motor yacht has a large top deck which is free of tenders, making the perfect play space. Along with the usual collection of toys, she is also an RYA accredited training centre, so children can be taught various water sports by a qualified onboard instructor. Email us for more information.
M/Y ELISABETH F
A classic Feadship, 53m superyacht Elisabeth F has some wonderful toys including a water trampoline, diving board and an inflatable platform complete with a slide. What makes her truly special are her Captain and crew, who are very experienced and especially good with families. Email us for more information.
50m luxury motor yacht Jo is a favourite for family charters so her crew are experienced and very child-friendly. Among her plethora of toys, worth noting are the 2 kayaks with clear bottoms – perfect for safe underwater viewing! Email us for more information.
