Expedition Yachting Around the World

Ever have the craving for a big adventure? Say, in the wild yet safe and pampered?  Consider the recent travel trend in Expedition Yachting – perfect for the ultimate wanderluster. 

Imagine such pioneers as explorers Jacques Cousteau and Emille Gagnan (inventors of the Aqua-Lung), SCUBA and submersible developer Sylvia Earle, and James Cameron, who not only directed the movie Titanic but also invented the underwater camera dolly and was the first person to solo dive into the Mariana Trench. Let their reverence for our seven seas inspire you to take on your own ocean expedition in pure luxury.

Check out these former working vessels that have been transformed into spectacular charter-ready yachts.
