While charter yachts and water sports do go hand in hand, scuba diving is different. Charter yachts that want to offer scuba for their guests need to have special insurance, space dedicated on board for stowing air tanks and gear, crew who are certified to lead dive parties and, ideally, a tender that makes it easy for divers to get in and out of the water.
It’s for these reasons that a lot of yacht owners simply choose to omit scuba from their charter programs. If guests want to scuba dive, those owners reason, the crew can arrange for divers to meet a local shop and go out with their equipment and staff.
Finding a luxury charter yacht with a serious scuba setup is thus something of a rarity, which is why the 162-foot Christensen motoryacht Remember When is worth a look for anyone interested in diving.
Part of the Churchill Yacht Partners charter fleet, Remember When is insured for scuba diving, carries all the needed equipment and crew, and comes with a 42-foot Invincible tender with easy side-door boarding for divers going into and out of the water.
Remember When is a 2011 build that accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms. Those who don’t dive can play on the Yamaha WaveRunners, FlyDive hydroflight system, Seabobs, standup paddleboards or Laser Pico sailing dinghy–or just relax in the on-deck hot tub.
The weekly base rate is $230,000 to charter Remember When in the Bahamas. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week on board.
