One of the Ten Best Family Yacht Charters
A sleek 130 ft. superyacht, the Sweet Escape does more than live up to her name: she totally embodies the ideal. One of the Ten Best Family Yacht Charters in our fleet, this is one superb vessel from which you’ll never want to disembark. Perfect for that extended family getaway you’ve been planning, the Sweet Escape boasts an ingenious layout, plenty of space for both socializing and privacy, and is staffed by one of the most vibrant crews in the business.
Although an old gal, the owner continuously upgrades her look and features. It was designed with comfort in mind and exudes with old world charm elegance. Coupled with a toy inventory that no active family could possibly get through in just a single charter (but feel free to try!) amazing dining, and a team of dedicated sea lovers that’ll cater to your every need, the Sweet Escape is a classic luxury charter yacht that’ll make for an unforgettable family sailing vacation.
An Arsenal of Toys
What sets Sweet Escape apart is her extensive arsenal of fantastic water toys which includes a giant water slide, 3 jet skis, jet surf, kayaks, 2 paddle boards, water skis, wake board, kneeboard, 4 seabobs, and an utterly fun water golf game with floating golf balls! Fishing and snorkel gear are excellent for morning outings to either catch or admire the underwater creatures, and 6 full SCUBA sets for rendezvous diving excursions.
Three tenders, including a 39’ Nortech towed tender and a kaleidoscope of beach toys will ensure your onshore outings are as fun as your time aboard the Sweet Escape. Which, admittedly, will be quite a feat. They even have a submersible swim platform for easy boarding from the sea which also doubles for toddler paddling.
Specs and Amenities on Sweet Escape Motor Yacht Charter
Elegantly appointed throughout, Sweet Escape is that exquisite private retreat you dream about. The blend of sophisticated décor aboard a world-class modern yacht is outstanding. The L-shaped comfortable lounge in the Main Salon will no doubt draw you all in for sociable evenings at sea, the Sky Lounge is excellent for movie nights with its widescreen TV, and the Sky Lounge Bar the glorious place for a delectable nightcap before bed. On the aft deck, you’ll find al-fresco dining to fit 12.
The Formal Dining Room, for those fancy nights when you get all dressed up to the nines, is adjacent to the Main Salon. The crew loves to surprise guests with theme nights and a variety of "tablescape" decor.
The Sweet Escape is as pleasing outdoors as she is indoors, with a brilliant sun deck (shaded and non), 6 to 8 person Jacuzzi and plenty of sunbathing space. Not to be outdone, the Bridge Aft Deck also offers copious sun-drenched spots and walk around access. we especially love the new sun pad on the Portuguese deck (forward of the bridge) that can convert to a dining area for 10 guests.
Onboard Wi-Fi, Wii, and a selection of board games, will keep everyone entertained in the evenings, and a printer/scanner/fax will also keep you connected to the office if need be.
Accommodations on Sweet Escape
Sweet Escape can comfortably host up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, comprising three Kings, two twin berth cabins which can also be converted to Kings, and a bonus cabin with a single and a bunk suitable for children or staff. The Master Stateroom is an absolute delight with walk-around bed, two separate en-suites with Jacuzzis, two walk-in closets and all the mod-cons you’d expect of a yacht of this caliber. You’ll find a gorgeous VIP Stateroom on-deck which offers superlative views, and one below deck, along with the two Twin/King cabins with extra-long beds.
With the exception of the bonus cabin, all the cabins aboard Sweet Escape are equipped with flat-screen TVs, as well as DVD and CD player, iPod docking stations, with a world-class Bose stereo system completing the package. Beautifully appointed, all equipped with air-con and plenty of portholes to drench the cabins in light, as well as all the comforts you’d miss from home like fluffy robes, slippers, and designer bath products.
Sweet Escape Motor Yacht Charter Captain and Crew
Crewed by a dynamic team who’s been sailing together for years, the Sweet Escape offers one of the best yacht crews in the business. Each team member is uniquely gifted, whether that be at the helm, stove, dining room, or as a sporting instructor. Hailing from just about every corner of the globe, Captain Paul Garfield and his trusted right-hands, will win you over with their passion for the sea and enthusiasm for living life to the fullest. They’ll engage the kids, draw brooding teenagers out of their shells, and even get Grandpa on that giant slide with the gentlest of nudges.
The ace up this yacht’s sail would have to be Chef Thomas Rider, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America who also did a stint at Le Cordon Bleu. Thomas is very experienced with adapting to different dietary requirements and has a knack for making even the fussiest child beg for more greens. Thomas strives to offer the freshest of everything.
As one guests so gushingly reviewed, “We had the best vacation ever...it was spectacular!! The crew and meals were unmatched--it just doesn't get any better than the paradise we experienced on this trip”.
Another family wrote: "This trip was the dream-vacation of a lifetime, planned to celebrate W’s birthday and W & C’s 60th Wedding Anniversary. Our entire immediate family of ten as able to come with us and spend this dream-week onboard “Sweet Escape”. It was an astounding week of togetherness, family fun, fabulous meals, beautiful sights and loving attention from the outstanding crew. A finer group of people could not be found anywhere. They anticipated our every wish and need, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day. Thank you.”
