Superyachts are traditionally hard to navigate for those with limited mobility issues, with narrow decks, multiple stairs, and cabins located away from the main salons. This has been a point of frustration for many.
However, times are changing, and shipbuilders and owners are increasingly turning to inclusive and thoughtful designs. This means there is now a superb selection of yachts that are accessible to all.
Accessible yachts eliminate barriers enabling you to enjoy life to the maximum aboard a luxury vessel. Whether you want to cruise blue water havens such as the Mediterranean or the Caribbean or wish to explore the world’s most remote oceans, we can connect you with your ideal accessible yacht, offering trusted and expert guidance at every step.
An accessible yacht is genuinely inclusive, enabling all individuals to move freely around a vessel and enjoy all its onboard amenities without sacrificing style or luxury. Just some features found on an accessible yacht include:
An accessible superyacht will likely feature an elevator, allowing guests of all physical abilities and ages to access all areas of a boat. A yacht with an elevator offers multiple benefits, including enhanced safety over stairs should a yacht experience a sudden rolling movement due to inclement weather. They can also make it much quicker to access the different levels of a boat. In addition, a hydraulic lift platform can also ensure getting onboard the yacht is effortless.
Other features may also include a clever layout, such as a master suite on the main deck providing direct access to the salon or dining area, strategically placed handrails throughout the yacht, armless chairs, and clever bathing solutions, including accessible and easy-to-use walk-in baths and showers.
The crew onboard an accessible yacht will be highly trained and will go the extra mile to ensure everyone’s needs are expertly met.
