Like all leaders in our business, we have gone through a recent period where the yacht industry has been subjected to inquiries from some authorities, but over the past few months, Imperial Yachts has been targeted by numerous unfounded and inaccurate accusations following events that are unrelated to this family owned company and its services.

These events culminated today with the announcement of sanctions on our company by the United States government. The accusations made against us by the U.S. government and in the press are false. We will pursue all available legal remedies to resolve this matter promptly.

Imperial Yachts conducts all its businesses in full compliance with laws and regulations in all jurisdictions in which we operate. We are not involved in our clients’ financial affairs.

We are in the yacht building, management, sale and charter business. That is our focus and what we do. We started this company from nothing, and now, it appears that due to our success, we are unfortunately being targeted by those who would like to bring us down.

We look forward to settling all matters resulting from this turbulent time, as well as disproving the damaging smears made against our company. As always, our focus remains on living up to our established name as an international leader in providing the highest level of excellence for yacht sales, construction, management, and chartering.

World’s 18th Largest Island: Iceland

If you are looking for adventure then Iceland is your answer. One of the few places in the world where it is equally beautiful to charter in the Summer or Winter. The vast glaciers, volcanoes and fjords are a natural phenomenon to discover. Explore the many waterfalls, geysers and geothermal mud pools as well as the surreal Aurora Borealis. Cruise across the glacial lagoons and anchor to go on an expedition or ice-hike.

In the Summer season, the days are endless as the sun doesn’t set. Activities range from whale watching, hiking or discovering the country’s unique snorkelling and diving by going deep below the icy waters and descending between two tectonic plates. In the winter season, take the helicopter to the top of the mountain and ski down to a fjord shoreline in the Troll Peninsula or perhaps set out on a snowmobile safari. It is a journey of a lifetime where you will create magical memories.

Boasting incredible fjords, abundant ocean grounds and a labyrinth of rivers and lakes, it is a paradise for fishing. The spectacular fishing spots make this a sought-after destination for anglers. Fishing in Iceland is historical, cultural and commercial as much as it is recreational. With freshwater and large oceans, Iceland has a bounty of fish yet the number of species is surprisingly few. Anglers are most likely to find Atlantic Catfish, Atlantic Cod, Haddock, Mackerel, Halibut and Atlantic Salmon to name a few. Each river system has its regulations to protect stocks and nature. The crew onboard are fully aware of which rivers and lakes will best suit your needs whilst respecting the rules.

Mývatn located in the heart of northeast Iceland is one of Europe’s greatest treasures. The land is shaped by many volcanic eruptions and seismic activity. The remarkable panorama of lava and cave formations is not one to miss. The Lake Mývatn is ideal for thermal bathing and bird watching during the warmer months.

In the Southeast of Iceland, Hofn (meaning harbour) is one of the few natural harbours in the country. It offers scenic views of Vatnajokull which is the largest ice cap in Europe by volume. Around this region, guests can see white glaciers descending into black sands where hot streams erupt from frozen banks of ice. Walk around the village of Hofn and embrace the charm and coastal sights. In addition, there are delicious lobster restaurants that one shouldn’t miss!

Venture off the beaten path and visit the Westman Islands. It is an archipelago formed by a series of underwater eruptions. Consisting of 15 islands and around 30 islets, it is arguably the best-kept secret in Iceland. Iceland’s largest puffin colony come in the warmer months to nest on the cliffs.

Get in touch with our charter department to explore the magical country of Iceland!
