Tusitiri (journeysbydesign.com; from $4,140 per night), Kenya’s prettiest and most thoughtfully provisioned dhow, is, after a hiatus and some nice updates to her interiors, returned to the charter circuit in her home base of Lamu – itself encouragingly recovered and back on the radar.

Life on board is pared back to the most elemental iteration of indulgence: guests roll out mats and sleep under the stars on deck, but on the finest linens; elegant jahazi sailing tenders bear them to and from deserted islets and white beaches; there’s a warm open-air shower and a charming alfresco kitchen. It’s as close to timeless as boating life gets.
