The Importance of Good Food on Your Next Luxury Yacht Charter

You have chartered the perfect luxury yacht with wonderful professional crew in a great location what next? …

One of the most important aspects of chartering a private yacht with friends and family is the luxury yacht cuisine. You will be eating breakfast, lunch, dinner onboard and everything in-between, including fresh fruit smoothies, tea time delights, cocktails and canapés in some combination every day and we at Nicholson Charters know how important a job the chef has in accommodating you and your guests wants and needs on a daily bases.

Yacht Charter Chefs are trained and eager to please their guests; they want to make your favorite dishes, create a party for a Birthday or anniversary and will provide delicious healthy fresh meals that appeal to everyone. They will always use lots of local fruits, vegetables, shellfish and meats from the area you are cruising to incorporate into their dishes.
If you want Classic French, Mediterranean, Italian, Asian, Japanese or a good American BBQ your chef will be able to show off their skills. How and when do you like your coffee or tea in the morning, it will be delivered to your cabin or to the aft deck if you prefer an early morning swim first, these are the details that makes the luxury yacht cuisine perfectly tailored to your needs

Therefore as much information as possible should be given on the Preference Forms we send you to complete, this will let the chef know exactly what you like and how you like it and most importantly if anyone in your charter party has allergies or has a special diet.
