Charter Guests Rave About Yacht-Based Treasure Hunts

Bill Springer | January 22, 2023



What do you get when a veteran TV producer combines all the fun and family connection of a yacht charter with the escape and immersive excitement that’s possible with a Hollywood-level production team? 

A Luxury Treasure Hunt that’s fun, exciting, and suspends reality for charter guests in a very cool way, helping busy families to unwind and connect in surprisingly meaningful ways.

Pitched as “Yachting meets Hollywood,” Luxury Treasure Hunt founder Charlie Moretti has assembled a team comprised of artists, designers, and producers who’ve worked at Disney, Marvel, National Geographic, and other networks to create unique and immersive adventures in a live yacht-based setting. And all of the treasure hunts are built on detailed scripts that combine real-life historic figures and storylines with a professional filmmaker’s imagination and high-end production values.

The hunts are also tailored to each small group of guests and take factors such as the age of the group, their interests (history, adventure), and, of course, the location of the yacht into account.

“We’re finding the parents love our hunts just as much as the kids,” Moretti says. “Most of our guests lead busy, successful lives. But many also find it hard to unplug even on a superyacht vacation. The cool thing is, not only do we take people out of their normal routine into beautiful locations, like all superyacht charters do, we also give them exciting, realistic tasks that foster togetherness as well as provide an escape from the day-to-day mental stress of life. The kids enjoy the movie magic we make happen. And they love unlocking the clues they need to accomplish each task to eventually find the treasure. But you know what? Even the hard-driving CEO-type parents we’ve worked with find they love being able to connect with their kids in entirely unexpected ways, too. And they love being emersed in the story and away from their phones!”

Marcel Busse, the captain of the superyacht Nero, sums it up pretty well: “We welcomed the Luxury Treasure Hunt team onboard Nero in the Ionian Islands. Our guests were able to become heroes in their own, real-life mini-production. The younger guests could not stop retelling the story of the incredible events they had experienced. It’s a memory they will not soon forget.”

And I know I speak for many parents out there when I say…I’ll try anything that fosters family connection, fun, and escape from the day-to-day stress of life. Anything!
