All across Bermuda, sailors and skippers agree there’s nothing quite like seeing the islands by boat. Whether you’re floating past secluded mansions or visiting rustic communities that offer glimpses of how things used to be, you’ll see Bermuda in a different light when you’re on the water. There’s also nothing quite like enjoying a gourmet dinner on a luxury yacht. Bermuda offers several options for visitors who want to treat their loved ones, enjoy the grandeur of in-yacht dining or host a memorable occasion. For sheer opulence, it’s hard to beat the MV Venetian. Helmed by Captain Paul Terceira, the 100-foot Azimut- Benetti yacht is especially outfitted with a sumptuous salon, dining room, and four staterooms with en-suite bathrooms. The Venetian can host a lavish night out for a couple or an elegant sit-down dinner for up to 26 people. Captain Nigel Prescott, owner of Tam-Marina and Ladyboats, has a long history with on-the-water dining. In 1969, he built The Gray Venture, Bermuda’s first floating restaurant. Today, he and his son offer dining charters aboard their three boats, each of which comes equipped with a full galley. The 46-foot Boss Lady is ideal for an intimate outing for up to 10 passengers. The 92-foot Lady Charlotte can accommodate up to 70 people, whilst the expansive 110-foot Lady Tamara, the largest luxury charter boat on the island, has hosted weddings and formal sitdown dinners for 60 guests. Exclusive Charters also invites you to dine on the high seas. Captain Damien Tucker, a 16-year veteran of Bermuda’s waters, caters his sunset dinner cruises to more intimate groups of up to six people. Guests aboard the Holding Firm II, a 37-foot Sea Ray Express Bridge, request their meal preference in advance (or bring their own food) and can even opt for an on-board manicure, pedicure or massage to complement their dining experience. For those who seek exclusivity, luxury and something beyond a traditional restaurant, a chartered cruise can be a dinner to remember.
