Embracing Solitude at Sea; The Superyacht Guide to Going Solo


When you think of superyachts you often think of cabins filled with family and friends, raising a toast on the aft deck, and exploring foreign shores with those you love the most. Yet super yachts can also be an idyllic floating retreat for those who want to take time out and need the space to explore the islands of their own being. Traveling solo can work wonders when keeping the body, mind and soul in balance and is brimming with beautiful benefits. You can choose to spend your hours without compromise, you can indulge in the comforts you love, and you can set sail on your own clock. Even when you glide away alone with MY Starfire you never need to worry about feeling bored; the onboard spa, the cinema, the endless entertainment options, and the attentive crew are sure to bring that perfect balance to your next solo nautical adventure.

Be the Master of your Own Mind

Anyone who has journeyed solo either on land or at sea will tell you the same, there is nothing more empowering then having the freedom to be the master of your own mind. Life is always one big compromise but when you venture out alone you are free to make your own decisions. You can choose every second of how you want to spend your day; you can sleep in until noon or rise at dawn, you can stay on the aft deck all afternoon with a book in hand or you can step ashore to a new destination every morning. Setting sail on a luxury yacht charter will gift you that much needed time and space to rekindle a connection with your own decisions without compromising on a second of luxury.

Choose the Right Destination

Another simple pleasure about embracing solitude is that you can pick the destination you have been dreaming of. If you always wanted to kayak around the tumbling waterfalls of the Norwegian Fjords this is your perfect chance. If you always dreamed of diving the blue hole of Belize, you can pencil it in your schedule for this summer. If you are more of a fast rolling casino character than a simple cognac and sunset person, then you can hit up the bright lights of Monaco. A successful solo venture aboard a luxury super yacht means choosing the destination that suits your personality so it boosts every moment into sheer enjoyment.

Take Time to Find Yourself

Knowing the reasons why you want to take this adventure solo can be another positive step on the great journey across the sea. Perhaps you wanted to write the great American novel you have been penning in your head, maybe you wanted to dedicate some time to detoxing, yoga and a pinch of perfect pampering at MY Starfires’ onboard spa. Perhaps you wanted to go on a vineyard tour of Italy, or maybe you wanted to simply sit on a beautiful Azul beach somewhere in the Bahamas and think about what you want to do next with your life. One of the bespoke pleasures of going it alone is that you are granted that time to explore your thoughts, to follow your whims, and to put things into perspective.

Seek Company When You Need it

Even when you sail solo sometimes you are sure to crave a little company, the key is finding the balance. MY Starfire has a dedicated crew who intuitively know when it’s time to step forward and when it’s time to slip into the background. When you feel like stepping back into the world of long conversations and new encounters there are plenty of possibilities at every port of call. You can join a horse-riding tour of the grenadines or a foodie tasting tour of France. You can step ashore for a few nights in a beautiful Bahamas spa, or you can simply go for a night out along the French Riviera and invite all your new friends back for a sweet and serendipitous nightcap as you watch the stars rise and fall.
