Yacht Description

Currently the largest catamaran in the world, Hemisphere is just over 44m in length with a massive 16.6m beam. Her innovative design blends speed and stability with both space and style.

Hemisphere comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in five cabins, two of the cabins being identical.

Fifteen types of stone, 18 different leathers, and a variety of finishes including walnut soles, brushed oak and wengé, mark a distinctively astonishing interior decorum best described as “Polynesian Six Star Luxury”.

Outside, the fly-bridge presents tremendous deck space for recreation, while an inviting seating area surrounds an irresistible spa pool. The main aft deck features a unique oval-shaped glass table intricately etched from beneath its surface with a contoured map of the world’s seven continents. The lavish formal dining area resides on the deck below.



Accommodation is provided for up to 12 guests, with two identical master suites on the main deck which can be merged to form one huge suite with access to the trampolines and a small seating area.

A further two double cabins, and an additional twin suite with two pullmans are all outfitted in five-star Polynesian style.

As one would expect from the most luxurious catamaran in the world, Hemisphere hosts the very latest audio-visual and communications equipment on board, as well as a crew of eight to tend to every need, including two diving instructors.

Food & Drink

One of the fabulous features of a crewed yacht charter is having your very own personal chef. Most will have formal culinary training or restaurant experience, and so you will find the food on board to be of an excellent standard – very often better than on shore! Whether you like home-style cooking or gourmet fare the chef will tailor the menu according to your tastes and preferences.

We provide forms for you to complete, detailing your favorite dishes, likes and dislikes, and any special requests. You then have the opportunity to discuss and review the menu prior to your trip. Some chefs will also provide a children’s menu and will happily cater to any special dietary requirements or allergies.

The all inclusive yachts come fully stocked with a ships bar & house wines, you can also request special brands or your favorite wines (some which may be at additional cost). We assist in ensuring that the crew are well prepared and every detail is taken care of so that all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

How To Charter 'Hemisphere'

Independent Yacht Charter are the experts in luxury yacht charters throughout the Caribbean. From the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to the Grenadines, we have first hand knowledge of every boat, every crew, and every anchorage. We have spent many years arranging luxury sailing vacations for families, friends, couples and corporate parties and we’re fully accredited members of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association which means you can book your charter with confidence.

Planning Your Itinerary

The Caribbean remains one of the most unspoiled, un-crowded and magical sailing destinations in the world. We have chartered yachts in these waters for many years and it is as uniquely pleasurable today as it was when we very first arrived.

We will provide advice and guidance on the cruising area most suited to your group,  some itineraries offer exciting blue water sailing whilst others with easy beach access and short sails are more suited to families with young children.

Once you have decided on the cruising area we will make recommendations on the best routes, must see things to do, anchorages off the beaten track or perhaps the best beach bar for sun-downers – what-ever your requirements a personal itinerary will be planned for your trip.

Once on board you will be able to discuss plans each day over breakfast – the wonderful thing about a private yacht charter is that YOU get to decide the pace of the trip and that in consultation with the Captain the itinerary is entirely flexible.

Where ‘Hemisphere’ Sails

Available for charter throughout the Caribbean Island chain. From the British Virgin Islands to the Grenadines there are a wide range of locations to suit all groups & requirements.

The British Virgin Islands are suited to families with young children and those new to sailing;  St Barths & St Martin offer similar glitz and glamour to the French Riviera;  St Kitts, Nevis & Antigua are all about historical colonial charm (and some amazing beaches); Dominica, St Lucia & St Vincent are full of lush rainforest, water-falls & stunning scenery; and the Grenadines are a beautiful group of Islands with great variety and world class diving.

There are many exciting itineraries to choose from and you are more likely to secure your location of choice by planning well in advance.


Once we know your preferred cruising area we’ll send a selection of recommended yachts - you’ll see crew details, photos, menus and full specifications, we’ll then liaise with the yacht owners to confirm costs and availability.

Some yachts will have a home base for the season, and charge delivery or re-positioning fees for charters starting outside the home port.

During any of the school holiday weeks many yachts book up to a year in advance – so it is worthwhile enquiring early to get the best choice of yachts.

“I just wanted to thank you for the greatest trip of a life time!!

This trip out did our greatest expectations! The crew was amazing, tailoring to our every wish. The food was above 5 star and it was incredible to us how this could be accomplished with such a small kitchen. Each day was better than the next and we have never been more relaxed in our lives. If anyone ever needs a reference please do not hesitate to have them call us. I hope one day we can take this trip again.
