Experiential Yachting is an evolution of leisure-oriented yachting, focusing on revealing human potential through sea-related practices, adventures, challenges, exploration, learning, discovery.

We aim to up-lift yachting with deep purposes and non-ordinary experiences, making a difference to the world and to people’s lives.

A well reputed yacht, an open-minded crew,  inspiring destination and itinerary , unique methodologies and concepts are the four vital components for creating lasting valuable “asset” of life: an experience that reveals the essence of existence.

In collaboration with leading brokerage houses and experiential designers we introduce a hand-picked collection of most sophisticated yachting experiences around the world.

For people who have health issues or have been diagnosed with serious diseases, there are special programs, designed within the concept of Yachting Therapy. 

For the yacht owners, yacht charterers, captains and selected yacht managers & brokers we also propose unique author’s experiences to upgrade usual itineraries with emotional, purposeful activities and challenges.

The term “Experiential Yachting” was defined in 2019 by Maria Alekseenko (Monaco-based entrepreneur and founder of Experiential Yachting) and Peter Economides (founder of Felix BNI, strategic adviser for Oceanco shipyard and other successful companies outside yachting industry).
