What do you buy for the yacht lover who has everything? With the season of goodwill upon us, it can be tricky to search the aisles for something that will bring worth and excitement to our loved ones. Those who are inspired by the scent of salt air, sand dunes, and billowing white sails will love this stunning array of gifts. From cozy sweaters to yacht ownership, here are the finest gifts for the yacht lover in your life…
Life on the open waters can bring chill sea breezes, especially when sailing the sublime Mediterranean coast. A cashmere sweater is a perfectly dreamy gift for someone who loves time out on the high seas. Cozy up on windswept eves with a beautifully soft cashmere and silk blend from Loro Piana.
ROLEX YACHT MASTER
Someone who spends their days gazing at the passing blue of the horizon, chasing the wind, and tracking the stars needs more than an average watch. The Rolex Yacht Master is a stunning example of pure craftsmanship with a bidirectional bezel of gold that tracks your sailing time. Another great option is a waterproof watch, we love the Rolex Sea Dweller. With a 3900m depth rating, it’s the perfect accompaniment to your wrist when deep sea diving from the deck.
SALVATORE FERRAGAMO BOAT SHOES
Every yacht lover needs a super comfortable and classy pair of boat shoes for life on deck. We suggest a stylish suede pair from Salvatore Ferragamo. The definition of Italian style and luxury, the master shoemaker was responsible for slipping beautiful things on the feet of starlets back in the 1920’s. These are boat shoes that are sure to stand the test of time, and can seamlessly translate from suppers on the Aft Deck to the glitzy casinos of Monaco.
A BOTTLE OF RHUM CLEMENT 1952
Even if they aren’t set sail for the Caribbean this winter, you can bring a taste of sun-soaked isles to their table with a high-class bottle of the finest rum. Anguilla Rums Ltd boasts one of the best; their Pyrat Cask has been described as elegant and refined with just the right hint of caramel and spice. If you want to splurge a little more, then the Rhum Clement 1952 from Martinique is one of the oldest rums made on location.
A fully waterproof floating drone makes for an incredible gift for those who want to capture amazing footage out of the sea. Whether its capturing stunning visions of your yacht from up high or exploring the nooks and crannies of hard to reach coastlines – you don’t get better than the splash drone. Not only does it boast features like an intuitive Follow Me mode, but it has a payload release function and a quick release button for carrying items that range from go-pros to life jackets.

Their shared yacht ownership program gifts you three to six weeks ownership of a superyacht every year – putting the world right on your doorstep.
