Journeys by boat
Journeys by boat
We are fully independent, so our only concern when choosing a private yacht or a cabin on a larger boat is what is right for you and your family. Our Destination Experts have visited these stunning boats, so after getting to know you and your family’s needs, they can advise on location and taste, as well as arrange a host of unforgettable activities and surprises once you are there.
Life on the private yachts boats and small ships we choose is about freedom and that elusive frontier feeling. It’s where iPads and smartphones are made redundant, replaced by the thrill of ever-changing scenery and daily discovery of secret little spots.
What we look for on vessels is a knowledgeable captain, a great chef, but most importantly a great guide to bring it all to life – because for any extraordinary destination to be fully felt in technicolour it needs to be brought to life by a team with the perfect balance of passion, charisma, and professionalism.
With cazenove+loyd it is not just about where you stay but the experiences that go with it. The magnificent Amazon River, the mighty Mekong or the wildlife-rich Komodo Islands – we can open up the world’s most incredible waterways to you in the most inspiring way.
Getting It Right Every Time
we would love to hear from you
Each of our dedicated experts has extensive knowledge of the destinations they specialise in. They are continuously re-visiting, trying and testing so that they can offer you up to date and little-known insights into the regions they are so passionate about.
"Just as Machu Picchu has to be seen to be believed, so do the Galapagos. I would not have been at all surprised to see Adam and Eve emerge from behind a candelabra cactus and hear them talk about evolution by natural selection. It was probably they who planted signs by the cliffs and along the paths saying "stop." As often as not there was a blue-footed booby on its nest the other side of the sign or in the middle of the path, or a red-footed booby nesting in a tree below."
"Just to say - we loved our stay on The Eclipse. I didn't know what to expect but the boat was so solid and comfortable and roomy. I expected the cabins to be tiny but in fact they were light and airy and very comfortable. There was always plenty of room in the reception rooms. The dinning room had windows down two of the walls and light flooded in. It was like staying in a comfortable house on the sea. I didn't feel sea sick once nor did any of us."
