The Wellesley, a superb boutique hotel in Knightsbridge overlooking Hyde Park, has announced the launch of a striking 56m superyacht, now available for charter.  

MY The Wellesley was originally built in the Netherlands by Oceanco and has completed a comprehensive refit by Sunrise Yachts and interior designers Dennis Irvine Studio to mirror the hotel’s glamorous Art Deco style. The yacht has already been acknowledged for its exceptional quality having received the coveted ‘Best Yacht of the Show’ award at the MYBA Charter Show on 5th May in Genoa.


Available for €240,000 (approx. £201,392) per week, MY The Wellesley sleeps 12 guests in six cabins, all en suite, along with a permanent crew of 12 ­- on hand to cater to every whim. Featuring bespoke furniture, black and white portraits and bevelled mirrors, the 1920s styling ensures that the suites are a “seamless extension of the hotel.” Suites consist of The Owner’s Suite – with panoramic sea views; The Master Suite; The VIP Suite; one double and two twins (both convert to doubles for maximum flexibility).


Spanning three decks, the yacht has 350sqm of outdoor space. Guests can relax in the Jacuzzi, hit the sundeck, or try out the yacht’s toys and tenders including jet skis, water skis and diving equipment under the guidance of qualified instructors.


“Watch a movie at the outdoor cinema while the chef prepares hand-rolled sushi. Enjoy a massage on deck before regrouping for a seafood barbeque. Explore beaches or swim in bays and coves accessible only by boat. Indulge in some of the world’s finest cigars from the impressive humidor while sipping Cognac on MY The Wellesley’s smoking deck. Explore the Mediterranean’s cities and beaches, parties and ports on your own schedule, before retreating to the privacy and luxury of your onboard suite,” a statement from The Wellesley said.
