Ocean Independence Charters
ONCE IN A LIFETIME SUPERYACHT CHARTER EXPERIENCES
An exclusive vacation on board a crewed luxury charter yacht is unlike any other, offering total privacy, fine dining, bespoke accommodations, unique experiences, and high-quality personalized service. No one knows that more than Peter Hürzeler, managing partner and co-founder of Ocean Independence, a global leader in the superyacht charter market.
Hürzeler founded Ocean Independence, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, more than 15 years ago, and it has grown into one of the most successful luxury yacht brokers in the world. Hundreds of charters are booked per year from its large, diverse yacht fleet. Why? Because the expert team at Ocean Independence are also industry specialists who cover everything from A to Z. The dedicated crew create custom itineraries and experiences for extraordinary vacations that produce memories that last a lifetime.
“Our main goal is to provide a luxury environment,” says Hürzeler. “We provide the customer with exactly what they want and give them good advice. That’s how we do business. We try to really understand the client.”
They accomplish this with a multicultural staff comprised of 26 nationalities who speak more than 20 languages. “Our staff gives us global representation,” says Hürzeler. “There is always someone to connect with each client.”
No other type of vacation lets you explore exclusive destinations around the globe, from remote private islands to adventure-filled habitats, at your own pace. Your dedicated gourmet chef will create a daily menu of haute cuisine tailored to your preferences. You can unwind on board with a soak in the Jacuzzi or get a relaxing massage from an expert crew member. Most yachts are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology and a wide range of water toys, so entertainment and fun at sea are ready when you are.
Ocean Independence is a complete one-stop shop that handles every detail. It has an aviation department that offers comfortable, private transportation directly to your charter. As well as yacht charter and aviation, the company specializes in yacht sales, berth sales, new builds, yacht management, financing, and consultancy.
What’s in the future for Ocean Independence? Listening to his clients and crew, Hürzeler realizes the need to invest in quality and focus on more sustainability. “The future will require more eco-friendly behavior. If you can make it an asset in the lux world, it will be quality,” he says. “We will be part of that positive movement.” oceanindependence.com
