Yacht charter experiences for gourmet food and culture lovers

Your time for culture & gastronomy

Your time for culture & gastronomy

‘The world is a book,’ St Augustine is often reported to have said, ‘And those who do not travel read only one page.’ Travelling by yacht, he might have added, is like building a library.

From the prow of a boat, the world is yours to discover in all its infinite variety. Yomira curates and crafts exclusive culture experiences that go far beyond the usual, immersing you in different places and distant times, and introducing you to a rich panoply of art, culture, heritage and cuisine.

Trace the route of Odysseus around the Greek Islands, guided by onboard archaeologists and classical scholars. Journey far beyond the tourist trails to hidden coves and hike unmapped routes on shore. Conquer wild, untouched terrain by bike; experience one-on-one yoga sessions in ancient amphitheatres; and watch the great tragedies enacted for you on the sands of a remote beach.

Should art be your passion, we can bring aboard specialists to help you expand your collection, arrange personal visits to galleries, and if you seek inspiration for your own practice, Yomira proposes a painting charter along the quintessential Italian coast. We can develop itineraries around landmark events such as Art Basel, the Cannes Film Festival or the Venice Biennale, arrange VIP backstage access to musical festivals and exclusive classical concerts, and coordinate on-board entertainment from some of the most respected performers in the world.

Food and wine are of course central to any cultural experience.  All of our yachts have world class chefs on board for you, and Yomira’s network of globally respected, sommeliers and producers allows us to incorporate a wealth of gourmet activities tailored to your tastes – from artisan tours in France, Spain and Italy to truffle-hunting excursions in Tuscany, cooking classes onboard or ashore, and region-by-region wine tastings. Whatever your interest, Yomira can open doorways to the inaccessible and the extraordinary.

EMBARK ON A GASTRONOMIC AND CULTURAL JOURNEY AROUND THE ITALIAN COAST

After a morning taking in the sights of magical Portofino, return to your yacht to experience the extraordinary skills of your private chef, with a tasting menu designed just for you…

The Mediterranean is in my DNA. I’m fine inland for about a week, but then I yearn for a limitless view of the sea, for the colours and smells of the Italian and French Riviera
