SeaDream Yacht Club celebrates its 20th anniversary
The originator of small ship cruising, poised for continued success
SeaDream Yacht Club Celebrates its 20th Anniversary with guests aboard SeaDream I in Italy and SeaDream II in Croatia.
For 20 years, the twin mega yachts, SeaDream I and II have been exploring some of the world’s most favored yachting destinations - including the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, and many more. Known for providing more of a yachting experience, and less of a cruise ship experience, SeaDream coined the phrase “It’s yachting, not cruising - Enjoy the difference.”
Founded in September 2001, just before travel was forever changed on 9/11, it is happenstance to be marking this milestone during a pandemic. The concept of small ship, yacht-like cruising has grown in popularity over the two decades since SeaDream’s inception. President of SeaDream Yacht Club, Bob Lepisto, who's been with the company since day one, said “Our goal was to create a casually elegant yachting opportunity where every guest feels like they're on their own private yacht. Emphasizing incredible service and cuisine, and the pleasure of travelling with like-minded guests. For our full 20-year history, we have stayed true to that mission.”
Poised for continued success, as the appeal of sailing on a boutique vessel with fewer people (SeaDream accommodates maximum 112 guests), relaxing in plentiful open deck space, dining outdoors, and calling on the less crowded yacht harbors, has SeaDream checking all the desirable boxes.
SeaDream Yacht Club is a family-owned company, and its sole Founder, Owner & Chairman, Atle Brynestad said “this is a celebration of our hard-working crew and our global shoreside team, our loyal guests, and our travel industry partners, for without whom, we wouldn’t be here today. We celebrate because of you.”
