From a 170-foot sailing ship in Indonesia to a Caribbean superyacht cruise, here are nine ways to get on the water in some of the world's dreamiest yachting destinations.
Shemara, Edmiston: Eastern Mediterranean
This historic boat was built for an industrialist in 1938 and requisitioned by the Navy during WWII. Now, after a complete refurbishment in 2014, the six-cabin Shemara is in her finest condition to date. Much of the yacht’s original character has been maintained—porthole windows, brass finishes, pine plank flooring—but interiors are contemporary with low-back chesterfield sofas, mirrored end tables, and a light-flooded master stateroom, dressed in shades of white and gray. The Shemara is based in the Eastern Mediterranean and can be chartered to sail around Turkey, Croatia, Sardinia, Corsica, the Italian Riviera, and Greece—all scenery that’s best enjoyed from the ship’s ample deck spaces, including an upper saloon with a day bar.
