Go overboard! Stay on a luxury yacht… without ever setting sail

Dreamt of enjoying the celebrity lifestyle aboard a luxury yacht, but not so keen on setting sail for an ocean-bound adventure?

Then head to the picturesque Burton Waters Marina on the outskirts of the heritage city of Lincoln, and a VIP stay on a 42ft luxury yacht can be yours for the night… with no sailing skills necessary.

Boasting king-size and queen-size cabins, both with ensuite facilities and a flatscreen TV, as well as inside and outside deck area, and a dining seating area below and above deck, the modern sleek Sealine S450 yacht sleeps up to five adults.

Plus, as well as on board shower and toilet, heating and wi-fi, there is also a retractable roof to enjoy the sunshine in the summer season, operated from the captain’s chair.

The static yacht – which is also fitted with a fridge/freezer and cooking facilities to provide a self-catering experience – is moored at Burton Waters, close to the historic city of Lincoln.

With the outline of Lincoln Cathedral in the distance, this prestigious purpose-built inland marina is set in over 15 acres of countryside, with a variety of on-site shops, services and restaurants as well as residential waterfront homes, and adjacent to the Fossdyke Navigation Canal,

The Fossdyke is thought to be the oldest navigable man-made waterway that is still in use in Britain today. Dating back to Roman times it was originally built as a means of joining the River Trent and the River Witham to give the Romans access to the heart of England from the Wash.

Two miles away by water is Lincoln’s Brayford Waterfront, England’s oldest inland harbour, and one of the city’s most iconic and picturesque areas, lined with a wide range of restaurants, bars and hotels.

While the yacht is permanently moored, guests can explore the surrounding area and follow the towpath and dedicated cycle path for a walk or cycle into Lincoln.

Onboard, all bedding, towels and overnight basics are provided, and prices start from £199 per night for the entire yacht.

For an even more luxurious stay, or exclusive celebration, guests can also upgrade their experience, adding a chauffeur, onboard chef, photographer, flowers and balloons.
