What is a Yacht Liveaboard?

The name says it all! Liveaboards are chartered yachts that you can live on for a period of time. Whether it's an extended weekend, a scuba diving trip, or a family getaway, liveaboards offer plenty of activities above and below the surface that'll leave you with amazing memories to take home.

Gone are the days of groggy living quarters, astronaut food, and conditions only fit for a sailor. Today's liveaboard yachts offer the creature comforts of home, with unparalleled views right off the deck. You'll be living, eating, and sleeping comfortably throughout your stay. Yacht charters aren’t inexpensive, but when you factor in all the food, drink, transport, and activity costs of a cruise or resort vacation, very often, a week of full-board sailing with your family can be very cost effective. We cater individual yacht itineraries to our clientele's needs, but generally, each trip includes a captain, chef, and other deckhands as dictated by the size of your group and activities they want to do.

SCUBA Liveaboard

For the divers in the group, think of your crewed charter as a personal floating scuba hotel. There's no better way to get more bottom time than by parking adjacent to dive sites and doing multiple dives a day. Most scuba charters are equipped with onboard compressors, tanks, and full dive gear. They also include a Dive Instructor or Dive Master depending on your particular needs. Some yachts carry simple snorkel equipment like masks and fins, while others offer the most sophisticated diving equipment available. It's truly up to you to let Envy Yacht Charters know where your passions lie. With worldwide locations, our yachts are ready to find a spectacular site just for your group!

Liveaboards aren't just for bottom dwellers though. If there are patrons in your group who are non-divers, our liveaboard yacht charters offer plenty of activities to keep them entertained. For adults and children alike, some activities include:

  • Windsurfing Lessons
  • Snorkeling
  • Jet Skiing
  • Kite Surfing Lessons
  • Water Skiing / Wake Boarding
  • Surfing
  • ASA Sailing Instruction
  • International Sailing Regatta Participation (Rolex and Heineken Races to name a few!)
  • Freediving

No matter the interests of your crew, they'll be recounting their days and spending time together on the deck! Our all-inclusive yacht vacations include three meals per day, a full bar, water toys, snacks, and deck amenities. It's everything you need to have a great diving excursion or family adventure, wrapped up in a package to make unforgettable memories.

All-Inclusive Yacht Vacation

Our family vacation clients often express that the most memorable part of the vacation is having everyone together in one place. Waking up and having breakfast together before individuals enjoy their particular activity sets the tone for a day packed with fun. Then, having dinner together allows each boat-goer the opportunity to share stories from their experiences had.

The professional staff at Envy Yacht Charters has the relationships and industry knowledge to pair your group with the perfect vessel and itinerary. Whether your getaway is suited towards a luxury power yacht, beautiful sailing catamaran, or a private scuba charter liveaboard, we are your go-to matchmaker! We inspect all yachts in our listings, and in some cases, travel to interview the crews to ensure our high standards are met.

With the water as your playground, you will experience unsurpassed privacy, control, and freedom on a liveaboard that simply cannot be found on a resort vacation. Grab the camera, jump aboard, and enjoy a family/group adventure at sea! All that is left to do is start the conversation with our experienced yacht charter experts, and you'll be on your way to an unforgettable trip.
