Discover the South Pacific by Chartering M/Y LAUREL
Exotic island destinations set in distant oceans were once considered as just idyllic notions, reserved for scientific research and holidaying royalty. Now, however, these paradises are becoming regular fixtures on superyacht charter itineraries, thanks to the improved capabilities of luxury vessels. No destination rewards venturing yacht charterers more than the South Pacific, where an assortment of exotic-sounding islands offers secluded beauty, without the crowds of the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.
Available for charter in the region, M/Y LAUREL is one of the finest yachts on the charter market. Built in 2006 at America’s Delta Marine, the yacht was the largest to have been built in the USA since 1921 and offers an incredible base from which to undertake your tour of the South Pacific islands. With a distinct blue hull, this 73.20m superyacht for charter has expedition pedigree, boasting a range of 6,000 nautical miles and a cruising speed of 15 knots. Designed by Donald Starkey Design, she allows for cruising long distances in complete luxury, with spacious interiors and elegant furnishings. M/Y LAUREL can accommodate 12 guests in six double staterooms and 22 crew members. The yacht underwent a full refit in 2015. As you would expect for a yacht of her size, M/Y LAUREL boasts generous exterior spaces, including exquisite al fresco dining areas. A top deck Jacuzzi was made for enjoyable evenings spent under the Southern Hemisphere skies, enjoying the catch of the day. Follow in the footsteps of some of history’s most famous seafarers, such as Captain Cook, as your South Pacific yacht charter explores islands such as Tahiti, and Fiji.These paradisiacal destinations are best discovered by superyacht: drop anchor in untouched waters, often surrounded by tiny atolls, comprising long stretches of pristine white sand and crystal clear waters. It is here, amongst the remote islands of the South Pacific, that many of LAUREL’s extras will be appreciated the most: an array of Nautica tenders, waverunners, kayaks, paddleboards, sea scooters, fishing gear and even golf clubs with floating golf balls are just some of the accessories that make this the perfect charter vessel. M/Y LAUREL is looking forward to a busy charter schedule and is now taking enquiries for the spectacular South Pacific. To discover paradise aboard this stunning yacht, contact Fraser Yachts today.
