Our Story – SeaDream
“It’s yachting not cruising” Enjoy the difference. So, what is the difference? We believe the difference is yachting. With a maximum of only 112 guests and 95 award-winning crew dedicated to making sure every detail is addressed, yachting aboard either one of our luxury mega-yachts ensures the highest levels of luxury and pampering, a true boutique yachting experience.
SeaDream Yacht Club is a family owned company, conceived by Norwegian entrepreneur Atle Brynestad: SeaDream Yacht Club’s Founder, Owner, Chairman and CEO. Mr. Brynestad founded Seabourn Cruise Line in 1987 and was its Chairman for ten years as well as CEO during the initial years. He has also been the Chairman of Cunard Line Ltd. and a board member of Carnival Cruise Lines.
Established in 2001, SeaDream Yacht Club has achieved the industry’s highest accolades for it’s two innovative cruising mega-yachts. “It’s yachting, not cruising”, defines SeaDream’s mission. Providing a casual yachting experience that will exceed our guests’ expectations is our pleasure.
Robert W. Lepisto, President, has been part of the original SeaDream team since its inception in September 2001. The SeaDream team both shore side and aboard SeaDream I and SeaDream II enjoy knowing they are providing unprecedented levels of luxury and service. SeaDream’s guests appreciate that whatever they choose to do (or not to do!) on their yachting holiday, they will be experiencing one of the best experiences at sea.
When designing SeaDream Yacht Club, Mr. Brynestad knew it would be the attention to detail and all important impeccable service that would define yachting in the true sense of the word. All of our guest rooms are ocean view and the SeaDream experience is inclusive. Whether dining al fresco or in the salon, relaxing by the pool or enjoying a Spa treatment, playing a round of golf in the 30 course Golf Simulator or taking a mountain bike shore side and exploring the port of call, our guests know that they are experiencing the most personalized and pampered holiday at sea.
SeaDream’s itineraries are designed to visit the intimate ports, harbors and yachting playgrounds that larger ships cannot reach. From May – October SeaDream I and II sail the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and Northern Europe. November – April we visit the turquoise waters of SeaDream’s Caribbean. In 2013, SeaDream makes her maiden call to Costa Rica via the Panama Canal. Additionally, in 2013 & 2014 SeaDream visits Asia with 17 exceptional voyages. To ensure that our guests experience all that each specially selected port of call has to offer, our itineraries feature overnight stays in some of the best yachting ports and harbors in the world.
We happily welcome you aboard, ask you to please allow us to make your voyage a memorable one and look forward to welcoming you back again and again.
