Sea Dream Yacht Club
SeaDream Yacht Club is an innovative, new yachting company that operates the twin, ultra-luxury mega yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II. Since their introduction in September 2001, they have become the prototypes of the casual and intimate yachting experience. SeaDream Yacht Club has built upon this legacy and today the two sleek and stylish SeaDream yachts are highly acclaimed by discerning travelers seeking a unique seagoing experience and by travel industry observers worldwide. The latest indication of this may be seen in the just released Conde Nast Traveler Cruise Poll for 2006 where tiny and tony SeaDream II scored super high---A Perfect 100 in Dining and Service.  No other passenger vessels---small, medium or large---received the perfect 100 accolade in 2006 for dining or service in this authoritative travel publication. Additionally, Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships guide for 2006 just announced, for the fourth straight year, the SeaDream I and II topped all other Five Star ships. Author Douglas Ward called SeaDream "Utterly exclusive."

As SeaDream’s President says, "We are not a cruise line. We are a yacht company and we provide a yachting experience." Yachting features an open and unstructured ambience that provides each guest the opportunity to enjoy it at their own pace and in their own style. They like to express this as "No clocks, no crowds, no lines, and no stress." The key word for the SeaDream yachting experience is "unstructured". It is all about personal choice, a free form holiday in which guests feel that they are aboard their own yacht. That is why they say, "It's yachting, not cruising".
