What better way to enjoy a Tahiti yacht charter than aboard the outstanding performance sailing yacht LUPA OF LONDON? Stretching out 24 metres in LOA, charter yacht LUPA OF LONDON (ex Rusalka) is a fantastic performance sailing yacht, with an easily driven hull, a power sail configuration and canting keel. She was launched in 2000 by Baltic Yachts to a design by Reichel Pugh and has since been meticulously maintained by her professional crew of three. She will arrive in Tahiti for an unforgettable French Polynesia yacht charter vacation in the South Pacific at the beginning of June and will remain in the area until September. In addition, Lupa of London’s exceptional performance has been confirmed during the RORC Transatlantic race, where she achieved the Line of Honours.
A paradise on Earth, spreading through the mountains of lush tropical foliage, beaches with soft white sand, lagoons with amazing coral reefs and warm crystal clear waters, Tahiti offers its visitors complete peace and tranquility from the hustle and the bustle of the every day life. Although French Polynesia is uncrowded, it still offers fantastic restaurants, clubs, bars, world-class resorts as well as colourful local culture with vibrant markets and specialty boutiques.
Tahiti is world renowned for the Tahitian black pearl which, as the legend says, was brought down to Earth on a rainbow by Ono, the God of peace and fertility who offered the black pearl to a gorgeous princess of Bora Bora as a sign of his devotion. Giving a black pearl to your loved one has since been regarded as a romantic gesture and a sign of eternal love.
The French archipelago lies in the midst of the Pacific Ocean and it is officially known as the Society Islands. Some of the most popular islands to explore aboard a Tahiti charter superyacht include Raiatea, Tahaa, Bora Bora and Huahane. Your charter itinerary could include a cruise to the breath-taking isle of Bora Bora, the Tuamotu Archipelago or the renowned and unspoiled Marquesas Islands. Most of the islands of Tahiti are volcanic, surrounded by protective reefs abundant with sea life and colourful corals. There are also idyllic blue lagoons in which to anchor your sailing yacht and enjoy a few hours of snorkelling, diving or other fun water activities.
