The Mediterranean luxury yacht charter season is in full swing and it’s a prime time to do some celebrity spotting, and some – like world renowned football star Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend aboard the 47m (154’2″) superyacht AFRICA I – are happy to give fans a peek at their holiday snaps.
As the world’s most popular yacht charter grounds the pair had plenty of choice when it comes to picking their luxury yacht – so what makes AFRICA I so special?

The muted modern interiors have a laid-back atmosphere where comfort and convenience take priority: The main salon is flooded with natural light thanks to all the windows down both sides of the room. Family and friends can socialise together in the same space with freshly prepared meals served at the forward formal dining area, while the plush sofas and armchairs behind are centred around a coffee table for conversation in air conditioned surroundings.
After sundown, the intimate skylounge is ready as a party venue or a serene place to unwind after a hectic day while the professional crew produce sweet and savoury cocktails as the group discusses their next big adventure on the sumptuous sofas. The projector can be used for films and showing off any holiday footage captured by camera or drone, and there are games consoles for keeping the kids engaged while the adults are entertaining.
Balanced outdoor spaces will give any charter group a wealth of dining options from the main deck aft up to the sundeck, and those with an active outdoor lifestyle will appreciate the fresh air. The upper deck aft offers the most elegant location for an alfresco meal, sheltered from gusts while providing open views of the stunning Mediterranean sunsets. The foredeck has a novel design, allowing for sunbathing on the foredeck while the recessed bow has an outdoor lounge attached to the Master suite, protecting users’ privacy with high bulwarks reminiscent of the tall urban garden walls to be found in Italy.
The Jacuzzi on the sundeck is the perfect place to soak in the sunshine and enjoy complete privacy all day long, with sun loungers, shaded sofas and an alfresco dining table at the group’s disposal.
Perhaps best of all, guests have at their fingertips and array of water toys for use amongst the magnificent beaches of the Cote d’Azur. The collection includes:
- 3 x Seadoo Waverunners
- 2 x Seabobs
- 1 x paddleboard
- 1 x wakeboard
- water skis
- fishing gear
- snorkelling equipment
- a water slide, and
- inflatable and towable toys
Those who can’t wait to get into the water can use the on board gym to keep up a fitness regime and burn off excess energy…and the calories from the indulgent treats to be found within the region.
The guest accommodation sleeps up to 12 guests across 6 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 3 double cabins and 2 twin cabins. The lavish Master suite enjoys plenty of sunshine because of the large windows and forward glass sliding doors to the alfresco lounge, and mirrors on the walls and ceiling enhance the spotlights after dark.
There is a crew of 9 will keep guest drinks topped up and everything running smoothly throughout any social occasion.
Superyacht AFRICA I has the perfect balance of indulgence, adrenaline and comfort to make her a sensational choice for more than sports stars and models. To secure luxury yacht AFRICA I, please contact the professional brokers at CharterWorld.
