A healthy lifestyle and a sense of well-being on board a yacht charter is created in different ways. In order to provide guests with a luxury and healthy lifestyle, a yacht charter must be able to deliver the multiple forms in which we seek a sense of well-being. This might be by keeping fit and active, by eating to specific dietary requirements, or by indulging oneself in a sense of complete relaxation. Most guests have a unique and personal preference in how they achieve a healthy lifestyle, often comprised all three. A luxury yacht charter must therefore be adaptable and suitably equipped to meet the needs of every guest on board. We have looked at the varying elements that are on offer throughout a yacht charter that can provide guests with the healthy lifestyle and the sense of well-being they desire.
Food and Nutrition
Yacht chefs are a key ingredient to any outstanding yacht charter. The high standards of cuisine found on board many luxury yacht charters would rival the top restaurants ashore. When it comes to wellness, the yacht chef can create dishes that are not only delectable, but meet your dietary requirements, whether you are after vegan, gluten-free, Paleo meals or any other of the latest dietary trends. Nutrition plays an important part in any healthy lifestyle and your time on board can be a fun way to learn about different foods.
It is proven that what we eat has a direct influence on our health and well-being, therefore sourcing and using the best of local organic produce can make up the healthiest and most sustainable menus on board. Many chefs take a special interest in the ways their cuisine can enrich the guests’ well-being, using the latest methods to preserve nutrition and boost your body’s health through food. Your yacht chef can discuss nutritional requirements and desires with you and can tailor your meals to complement a healthy lifestyle.
Fitness and activity
Surrounded by the ocean and with your own autonomy, a yacht is the perfect base to optimise your health and fitness. With access to all aspects of the outdoors, activities such as swimming, snorkelling and sailing in the sea, hiking mountain trails, running along the coastline and cycling through local towns can all be achieved directly from the yacht.

If you prefer to remain on the yacht to keep fit, then you can find yachts with all manner of gym equipment on board, from free-weights, running machines, resistance training equipment to even having an air-conditioned gym with a qualified instructor found on many of the larger yachts. The activities and onboard facilities that can be found on a yacht charter mean that all forms of exercise can be offered to all guests, whether it’s a sunrise yoga class on the foredeck or a high intensity workout in the gym.
A healthy lifestyle and sense of well-being not only encompasses the body but also the mind. For many, a luxury yacht charter delivers an escape to complete relaxation and enables guests to fully unwind. To achieve this a yacht charter must create an indulgent environment and many larger yachts are equipped with wellness centres, spas, hydrotherapy baths and beach clubs, all designed to induce a sense of well-being.
A focus on rejuvenating the soul is not only reserved for the larger yachts. A yachts itinerary can be planned around visiting local spas and resorts that offer therapeutic treatments and a relaxing day out. On all yacht charters, guests are fully pampered by crew seeing to their every need. Some yachts have crew members that are a trained masseuse, beauty therapists as well as having open deck areas for yoga classes.
The benefit for guests is that a yacht charter is designed around delivering a fully tailored luxury experience that can be successfully adapted to meet the requirements of all guests seeking a healthy lifestyle and a sense of well-being on board.
