An ultra-smooth jet and yacht charter partnership for Antarctic cruises

Chapman Freeborn and Eyos Expeditions’ cool collaboration

In November, the first glimmerings of the austral summer splinter the dark skies of Antarctica, with the cruise season opening up fully in December. New this year is the collaboration between private-jet specialist Chapman Freeborn (www.chapman-freeborn.com), which flies you into either Punta Arenas in Chile or Ushuaia in Argentina, and Eyos Expeditions (www.eyos-expeditions.com). The boat Eyos charters is the refitted 72m, 12-guest Enigma XK – with a hull sturdy enough to punch through the ice floes and an Owner’s Suite commanding 180-degree polar vistas. Enigma XK also has a helipad for airborne adventuring, plus there’s a hair salon for when the winds are katabatic. Prices start at €250,000 per week for the yacht, plus expenses; as a guideline for the flight, a Gulfstream G550 charter from New York to the cruise launch point in Chile costs from €145,000.
