NAMASTE - Welcome to our bespoke-crafted world of luxury adventure!
Namaste is a fully custom 78′ sailing yacht that has been painstakingly designed and carefully crewed to deliver an unparalleled experience. From its teak decks and open-air Jacuzzi to its performance sailing capabilities and jet tender, Namaste is without equal. She is loaded with tools for exploration—three Seabob ocean scooters, high-end snorkeling and scuba equipment including an onboard nitrox-capable compressor, two Segways, e-bikes, and state-of-the-art pedal kayaks. You will run out of days before you run out of new activities to try.
Yet, on Namaste, adventure is balanced with rejuvenation. On board, you can choose from several carefully designed experiences. Some, we carried to Namaste from the best spas in the world. Some are uniquely enabled by living aboard an exceptionally equipped and crewed sailing yacht and focus on the areas through which Namaste travels. Others take advantage of the slower pace of life on Namaste, making space to learn or simply be.
After a week aboard, how will your life be changed?
