Aello is the perfect classic yacht on which to potter around the Greek islands, sipping fine wines and "being rocked to sleep in cosy berths". True, there are more modern yachts out there, but that doesn't matter, says Varouxakis. "She's a classic beauty, and that will never go out of fashion."

From €25,000 a week; €3,800 for a day trip. See aello.gr

A luxury cruise to the Arctic

From $6,395 per person based on two sharing, "though polar expeditions can cost much more helicopter and submarine rides, of course, are extra". See scenic.co.uk

Throw a party in Thailand

TITANIA 00005137

Don't let the stately Old World interiors fool you, says Travis Levius in the Evening Standard. "Underneath the sophisticated grand piano-adorned main saloon" of the newly refurbished charter yacht Titania "is a modern stern area that can be converted into a mini-nightclub" perfect for throwing a party off the coast of Phuket in Thailand. Stewards in thematic outfits serve cocktails and deckhands are ready to aid you in "every watersport imaginable" jet-skis, SeaBobs, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and more. Titania has seven cabins, including two master suites, and "opulent" bathrooms. "After an adrenaline-filled day splashing around Thailand's pristine seas and bays, massages and beauty treatments in Titania's dedicated spa room will restore your sense of calm."

From €525,000 a week. See burgessyachts.com
