Cruise the Nile on this Incredible 55M Charter Yacht BERGE

Yachting Partners International introduces the BERGE to the Nile, bringing 55 metres of luxury yachting between Luxor and Aswan.

With a barrage of new double-masted dahabiyas and triple-decker cruises making their debut on the Nile along with the growing appetite for charter and international travel, Yachting Partners International (YPI) saw a unique opportunity to introduce something a little different to the fabled river: the BERGE. The 55-metre-long charter yacht runs along Upper Egypt’s most popular stretch of the Nile between Luxor and Aswan.

This scenic route winds through millennia of history and past pastoral farms, putting the story of Egypt on display in panoramic form. The BERGE will stop by Egyptian monuments such as the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple, the royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, and all of Aswan’s architectural wonders. Guests will also be treated to a generous dose of Egyptian culture on board with an ‘oriental night’ offering all the finest traditional cuisine and classic Arabic music hits.

Along with this immersive night of local food and music, BERGE also arranges a gourmet candle-lit dinner on a private idyllic Island off the Nile with promises of magical stargazing.

Spacious decks, ample lounge areas, a plunge pool and an endless stream of afternoon tea entice guests to soak in the sun - as well as the picturesque views. As the day ends, guests can retire to the yacht’s lavish interiors, with its plush amenities and full-width panoramic windows. The nine cabins can sleep up to 18 guests altogether, and feature luxe en-suite bathrooms decked out with marble. Egyptian cotton fabric steals the show, incorporated into everything from beddings to towels. Want to really up the luxury? Snag the best view in the house with the Owner’s Suite and order the butler service.

The BERGE is available for chartering in both summer and winter with a weekly base rate of USD 93,000. That rate goes up to USD 110,693 in the high season. The price includes all onboard expenses, taxes and excursions.
