Luxury lifestyle can be defined in many ways.
It is probably easy to agree that those who enjoy best of luxury lifestyles are usually unknown to the public eye, as they prefer their privacy. Such super-rich families or individuals, probably live in unimaginable luxury.
One would assume they own their own private jets, with which they visit their worldwide based super luxury retreats and private super mega yachts so that no one ever finds out about their whereabouts. Or did you hear lately about zillionaire Rothschild’s last weekend away with his girlfriend, not to mention hordes of other less known billionaires who we’ve never heard of, let alone know they enjoy any kind of luxury lifestyle?
What we know about luxury lifestyle, is what we regularly experience ourselves, for example luxury shopping in Paris, Cannes or London’s New Bond Street, private jet flight to Switzerland or occasional blast in the new Rosso Corsa Ferrari 458 Spider en route to St Tropez, Monaco or Puerto Banus.
More of a genuine life in pure luxury is usually thrown at us by daily newspapers and celebrity magazines such as OK or Hello. With hard to miss intensity, they tell us about the Dutches of Cambridge, the X Factor impresario Simon Cowell or the Brangelina and Beckhams lifestyle. And so, Ms Angelina Jolie and Mr Brad Pitt have apparently a property portfolio worth close to around 100 million US$’s and the Beckhams are just adding another London property to their collection, a true Bond-style home with tunnel access for cars, worth apparently £40 million pounds Sterling. One can imagine quite a nice luxury lifestyle behind these closed doors, especially if you add a small army of servants and professional staff members at their disposal, or the fact Brangelina have bragging rights when it comes to owning a French château and vineyard as well as their own petting zoo! Add to this both couples’ engagement rings studded with seven or eleven carat diamond whoppers, each costing in excess of several hundred of thousands of Euros and you can figure out how their next luxury holiday at sea will look like. Simon Cowell’s luxury lifestyle and holiday on the other hand will inevitably have something more to do with super yachts as he has been seen cruising very regularly in the Caribbean or South of France. His first choice super yacht, the fabulous ”Slipstream”, a 60m CMN designed by Andrew Winch is something that brings us closer to a luxury lifestyle we talk about on here.
Of course, in these times of extreme poverty in some parts of the world, luxury lifestyle could be seen as having a house, a car or belonging to the government circles alone. In other parts, amongst the newly rich Russian businessmen who send their own family for shopping trips to London on a privately chartered aircraft, with their influx to the UK singlehandedly boosting demand and profits of Private jet aircraft companies, or the odd Spanish business owner from Madrid or New York property guru to name but a few, the luxury lifestyle is defined in different ways.
And as these examples show, luxury lifestyle for those who inhabit a world of super-rich power players, most of us cannot even imagine, let alone afford to live. What the super yacht charter clients will usually consider when planning a luxury holiday at sea, either on a mega yacht, a super yacht or any other type of luxury crewed charter yacht, is a limited budget, limited time frame and limited choice of yachts on offer. This is where a reputable yacht charter broker with good experience in luxury lifestyle and super yachts on offer can be of great assistance. When planning a luxury lifestyle holiday such as the private yacht charter, the first issue super yacht charter clients will consider is the type and size of the yacht. As any of such yachts will be part of a luxury lifestyle, it would be sufficient to point anyone to a Yacht Search section on SuperSailYachts to answer that question. As yachts and destinations go hand in hand, any destination you call in with a super yacht, will equal a luxury destination and therefore luxury lifestyle. If you visit Costa Blanca in Spain by landing on a Ryanair’s or EasyJet flight and get a hotel transfer to a 3 star low quality hotel, you will be one of many. If however you arrive to Valencia’s coastline on a super yacht during the America’s Cup, the whole experience suddenly seems to be on another planet.
So what are the choices for you this winter ? Super sail yacht Leopard 3 is certainly a good choice to start with. A superfast sailing yacht offers great levels of luxury on board with 4 crew members and most modern facilities on board. Add to this their perfect gourmet style menu’s, 5 star luxury service, a fabulous 8m super yacht tender and your luxury lifestyle holiday on a super yacht is gaining a momentum. The yacht has just called in the Caribbean and her crew are ready to accept luxury crewed charters anywhere in the East Caribbean, all the way South from the island country of Grenada up to the fabulous BVI’s. At £40.000 pound Sterling per week all inclusive as per Caribbean terms, this is one of the best value super yacht charters and luxury lifestyle holidays today.Another luxury lifestyle option is yacht charter on one more super sail yacht. This one, a fabulous Perini Navi, is even more impressive. At 64m Felicita West is one of the largest super sail yachts in the world and certainly one of the more impressive ones.

And if you need a private jet aircraft to take you there from Sydney, you can bet there will be a number of jets offering such options too.If sailing yachts are not on your list of possible luxury lifestyle vacations, then a motor yacht is probably going to be the next best choice. Starting with a small explorer yacht TIVOLI, you could enjoy Hawaii this winter from only 55.000 US dollars per week, with 10 day charters offered for 7 day price during certain periods. The same charter boat will head to Alaska in Summer 2014, thus taking two charters, one in winter and one in summer on board of this cute luxury motor yacht could certainly make you feel like a celebrity.

The yacht offers luxury lifestyle charters from 65.000 US$’s per week and is likely to remain around Antigua, St Maarten, St Barths and Anguilla for most part of the winter season, before returning to South of France for the next years F1 Monaco Grand Prix in May 2014.If you would like a new super yacht based in the Bahamas, then ‘Checkmate’, a 145’ Benetti which charters from 200.000 US$’s could be your perfect luxury lifestyle choice.
