Pioneer yacht for charter

Brand new to the charter market, this 46-metre motor yacht makes the perfect choice for luxurious long distance adventures

The seaworthy, adventure-seeking Pioneer is available to charter with an on-deck jacuzzi, gym, and plenty of space to accommodate 10 guests.

46m M/Y PIONEER offers unrivalled stability and safety on more challenging voyages, while having all the luxuries of a modern superyacht.

Custom-built in 1996 for round-the-world exploration and discovery in mind, she was one of the first specifically designed expedition super yachts. She was fully refitted in 2015, with brand new teak decks, zero-speed stabilisers and interiors.

Inside, PIONEER combines sumptuous warm woods with natural tones and soft, comfortable fabrics. The yacht sleeps ten guests across five spacious cabins, which are configured as three doubles and two twin staterooms, all with en-suite facilities. The full-beam master cabin has a king-sized bed, two walk-in closets and a separate library and study. Meanwhile the two other doubles are queen-sized, with classic-modern interior design.

The yacht has various deck spaces for all occasions. There’s a top sky deck with sun loungers and a bar, leading down to a large, split level teak sundeck. The panoramic upper level offers plenty of space for relaxation, with a hot tub and relaxation space that’s ideal space for al fresco workouts, yoga sessions.

The master cabin also opens onto its own private sun deck, which has access down to the main deck and up to the sky deck. This private area has an oval varnished teak table and seating for 10 guests on teak chairs and loungers, a bar area with sink and fridge with icemaker and glasses.

When you’re not charting new courses between Caribbean islands, you’ll be able to enjoy Pioneer’s toybox which is packed with watersports equipment. Among other things, you’ll find two industrial grade Naid Jet Tenders, a 36' Ocean Tender Sportboat (subject to loaction and availability), two Yamaha Waverunner 3 person jet skis, two kayaks, two SUPs, kitesurfing equipment and various towables. There’s also 12 snorkelling sets of varied sizes and extra small sizes for kids, fishing equipment and more. For guests who wish to go diving, the crew will happily co-ordinate with Shoreside Accredited Recreational Diving companies to ensure a tailored and enjoyable diving experience.

A highly experienced and professional crew of nine ensures the highest level of personalised service onboard.

Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure, PIONEER cuts a smooth and steady path even through rough seas. She is an experienced world adventurer, comfortably cruising in Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Norway, North and South America and equally at home in warm climes of Caribbean and South Pacific.
