A Day in the Life: Aboard the Utopia IV

Built in 2018, the Utopia IV is the very definition of relaxation and entertainment on the open water, ensuring guests will live in the lap of luxury throughout their entire charter experience.

One of Moran Yacht & Ship’s top luxury boats, she’s built with an aluminum hull and aluminum superstructure. The Utopia IV’s semi-displacement hull provides exceptional seakeeping and impressive speeds, as the ship cuts a course with ease through any waters.

A charter aboard Utopia IV promises to be convenient and comfortable thanks to a number of amenities including a gym, a children’s playroom, ship-wide air conditioning, as well as plenty of water toys.

In order to give you an idea of just how luxurious a charter aboard the Utopia IV can be, we’ll take you through what a typical day might look like for you and your guests.

Rise and Shine

On the glorious Utopia IV, each day starts when you wake up in your luxurious suite with panoramic views of the surrounding seas. The suites are adorned with plush furnishings, high-end linens, and state-of-the-art amenities.

Our cabins are fully equipped

The Utopia offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in six suites, including a master suite, a VIP cabin, three double cabins, as well as one twin cabin. She also carries up to 13 crew members, ensuring a fully functional and well-staffed luxury yacht charter experience.

Our charters offer the facilities of a five-star resort combined with a Silver-service trained crew dedicated to providing you with a bespoke experience, tailored to your tastes and preferences.

Morning Glory

Guests start their day with a gourmet breakfast served on their private balconies. Begin with a vibrant array of freshly sliced tropical fruits, including pineapple, mango, papaya, and berries, presented artfully on a platter next to modern gourmet staples curated to your dietary needs and desires.

Indulge in made-to-order omelets with a selection of premium ingredients such as smoked salmon, truffle-infused cheese, and garden-fresh herbs, prepared by the world’s best onboard chefs.

Enjoy the best in modern gastronomy with Moran Yachts

For a more grounded option, consider avocado toast with poached eggs. Delight in a modern classic featuring perfectly ripe avocados, served atop artisanal toast, and crowned with delicately poached eggs. A sprinkle of microgreens adds a touch of elegance — the perfect light start to a day promising to be filled with island hopping adventure.

Late Morning Treatment

In the late morning, you might find yourself relaxing on the spacious sundeck which features a Jacuzzi as well as plenty of deck chairs to enjoy the sea breeze and catch some rays.

Our crew also provide a variety of treatments including exceptional massages, deeply-invigorating facials, and other indulgences. Enjoy rejuvenating spa treatment in one of our five private rooms, or alfresco, paired with stunning ocean views.

Our full-service beauty lounge, gentleman’s grooming salon, and steam room allow you to truly disconnect from the world and recharge in a serene nautical environment.

Afternoon Adventure

In the afternoon, you’ll want to take to the open sea and enjoy the incredible performance and range offered by Utopia IV’s quad engines.

Powered by 4 x MTU engines, she comfortably cruises at 24 knots, reaching a maximum speed of 33 knots with a range of up to 3,300 nautical miles at 15 knots. Her low draft of 2.2m/7’3″ makes her perfect for accessing shallow areas and cruising along the shorelines of the Mediterranean or the archipelagos of the Bahamas.

Utopia IV is the definition of a luxury yacht charter

An advanced stabilization system on board reduces the side-to-side roll of the yacht and promises guests exceptional comfort levels at anchor or when wave-bound.

Open Air Lunch

You’ll likely want to enjoy lunch served on the expensive aft deck, where guests will dine alfresco, indulging in a gourmet selection prepared by the onboard chef and staff, or perhaps by your own personal chef you brought along with you.

Eat and drink on one of Utopia’s lavish decks

Guests can indulge in a light and refreshing grilled Caribbean lobster salad featuring succulent grilled Caribbean lobster, mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, and a zesty citrus vinaigrette, or they can experience the flavors of the sea with pan-seared Mahi-Mahi tacos served in warm, homemade tortillas. Toppings include mango salsa, avocado crema, and shredded cabbage for a tropical twist.

Break Out the Toys

After lunch is the perfect time for exploration, as Utopia IV carries a custom-designed 7.01m/23′ Castoldi Tender for exploring nearby coves, beaches, and other hidden areas. Guests can embark on a guided tour led by the yacht’s knowledgeable crew, or head out solo to explore lavish lagoons and intricate reefs.

Explore the reefs and lagoons of the Mediterranean aboard the Utopia IV

Utopia IV is equipped with a range of other water toys as well, including jet skis, paddleboards, and a water slide.

Why not take to the sea on jet skis that offer you both power and control on the waves? Enjoy the adrenaline rush as you power through the water on one of our waverunners. You can also enjoy water skis, a big hit whether you’re a seasoned pro or just a beginner. You’ll also enjoy snorkeling equipment as well as full fishing gear and tackle.

Cocktail Hour at the Sky Lounge

As the sun begins to set, guests can gather in the sky lounge for a sophisticated cocktail hour. The onboard bartender crafts signature cocktails while guests socialize against the backdrop of the twilight sky. Stay refreshed with fruit-infused water and an assortment of canapés, including smoked salmon on rye crisps, cucumber bites with herbed cream cheese, and prosciutto-wrapped melon.

Cocktails merge seamlessly into your gourmet dinner beneath the stars, a gastronomic spectacle served on the spacious upper deck. Relish a meticulously prepared tasting menu featuring international flavors, accompanied by a selection of the finest wines.

Our chef presents a multi-course tasting that often features international cuisine and wine pairings, ensuring culinary experiences that rival the world’s top restaurants.

Begin the evening with a velvety lobster bisque adorned with a luxurious truffle foam, setting the stage for a decadent dinner.

Savor a perfectly cooked sous vide filet mignon, served with a red wine reduction. The dish is accompanied by truffle-infused mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus.

Delight in the delicate flavors of seared Ahi tuna, paired with a vibrant wasabi aioli. The dish is garnished with pickled ginger and sesame seeds for an Asian-inspired touch.

And finish the culinary journey with a chocolate decadence dessert – a rich and velvety chocolate mousse, accompanied by raspberry coulis and gold leaf for an extra touch of extravagance.

Late Night Stargazing

At night, the yacht’s helipad transforms into an exclusive stargazing platform, where guests can unwind with a nightcap while taking in the beauty of the night sky.

Before retiring to your luxurious cabin, savor a selection of world-class cheeses along with vintage port, creating the perfect nightcap experience. And pair it all with a glass of chilled Champagne to round out a perfect night as you relax on the yacht’s deck.

When you’re ready to call it a night, retreat to the high-end bedding and elegant décor awaiting you in your cabin, as you get ready to unwind, and enjoy a perfect night’s rest, ready to do it all again in the morning.
