AUSTRALIAN superyacht specialist Yotspace has announced the debut this year of seven-night expedition cruises on its brand-new catamaran Eclipse.
The “ultra-luxe” vessel carries just eight guests, and can be booked by the stateroom or as a private charter.
Eclipse was completed this month, and is being offered on 26 all-inclusive, seven-night expedition cruises in the Kimberley from April to October.
The ship will offer two different itineraries running on alternate rotation, both of which depart from Broome.
The seven-night round-trip ‘Kimberley Explorer’ voyage visits the Buccaneer Archipelago, Montgomery Reef, Ruby Falls, Sale River, Horizontal Falls, and the Kingfisher Islands, while the seven-night ‘Iconic Kimberley’ journey, which cruises north, will showcase Montgomery Reef, Horizontal Falls, Camden Sound, Kings Cascade, and the Hunter River.
The latter cruise also features a helicopter flight over Mitchell Falls and a light plane flight back to Broome.
Yotspace is offering 15% savings for staterooms or whole-vessel charters booked by the end of this month.
The company’s owner Nicholas Mason said he saw an opportunity to open up the previously out-of-reach superyacht charter experience to the luxury, small ship cruise market in the Kimberley.
“We’re inviting discerning adventurers to experience an exclusive and environmentally conscious new way to journey through the Kimberley,” he said.
“It’s a five-star, fully crewed voyage for just four couples offering an indulgent VIP luxury yacht experience for a fraction of the cost, with gourmet meals, beverages, and shore adventures all included.
“What we’re launching is a more exclusive and intimate way to connect with the Kimberley, with guests able to savour the high life with exotic cocktails, five-star cuisine, and chilled tunes on sun-kissed decks.”
