Bags of Style: The Best Luggage for Your Yacht Charter in 2020


When stepping onboard a luxury yacht for a charter, one of the most important accessories is a matching set of stylish, high-end holdalls. Louis Vuitton may be the jet-set’s enduring brand of choice when it comes to luggage, but there are many other worthy contenders. Each of our handpicked selections are sure to make a bold statement regarding your discerning travelling habits and will immediately set you apart from the crowd. Built with exceptional materials, care, and style, these luxury luggage brands carry the prestige of fine travel and are built to stand the test of time.

When selecting your luggage for your voyage, bear in mind that a luxury yacht charter is a different type of travel, with its own set of considerations: charter guests must bear in mind the vessel’s storage capacity, the numerous activity types, and the packed itinerary of varying destinations. As such, rather than a superbly stylish steamer trunk or hard case from a brand like Globetrotter, Victorinox or Rimowa, we recommend opting for a set of soft-sided bags.

Louis Vuitton

Luggage from Louis Vuitton needs no introduction to the world of yachting. Wildly popular with the superyacht set, the illustrious and historic brand has been crafting hand-made luxury travel cases since 1852, from the original rigid steamer trunks right through to the soft-sided Sirius, Carryall and Keepall Bandouliere holdalls. Also, in the Louis Vuitton range is a gorgeous dog-carrier. For those with a penchant for the exotic, we recommend a set of holdalls from the limited edition 2017 runway luggage collection, which was produced in collaboration with artists Jake and Dinos Chapman. Louis Vuitton cases capture the rich legacy of high-end travel and simply never go out of style. The Keepall 45 Bandoulière blends classic with innovative design to typify the rich legacy of high-end travel. The subtle addition to the brand’s famous pattern ensures that this bag will never go out of style.


Bottega Veneta

Flawlessly constructed and displaying a perfect harmony of functionality and Italian style, Bottega Veneta luggage makes a powerful statement. This deluxe Italian leather brand offers a range of handcrafted luggage for both men and women. Featuring their signature intrecciato VN leather weave and patchwork options, the Bottega Veneta luggage selection comprises a travel bag, trolley, shoe cases and garment bags. The chic bags are available in a range of beautiful colours, including black, deep blue, and wine-red Barolo. Bottega Veneta also crafts a range of striking multicoloured backpacks, which are ideal for going ashore from the yacht for a day trip. If space on the charter yacht permits, complement a trolley in Barolo intrecciato VN with a medium duffel bag of the same colour to create a winning combination.


Though Hartmann is now owned by luggage giant Samsonite, this high-end American luggage brand has a proud heritage that stretches back to 1877. Nevertheless, the brand has retained its reputation for exclusive style, with a range of beautiful luggage pieces that are considered to be modern classics. Designed with elegance in mind, the Hartmann range currently features a selection of soft-sided luggage options, including the refined Tweed Belting range, which benefits from an American walnut tweed fabric and American vegetable-tanned leather. For men, we recommend the Legacy duffel bag, which is crafted from the finest tweed and leather detailing.

Brunello Cucinelli

There’s a reason that James Bond carries a Brunello Cucinelli travel bag in the film Spectre; these Italian leather bags, designed in a hilltop castle in Italy, are both sophisticated and fashionable. The bag in mention is the Cowhide Boston Bag, yet the chocolate brown leather suitcase is equally as appealing, as is the woollen and cashmere felt suitcase with calf leather trim. For those looking for an image of casual luxury, Brunelli Cucinelli offers a trimmed navy denim and buffalo leather summer bag, while those who value the latest trends will want to purchase the Nuvolato Calfskin ‘Military’ Bag from the 2017 Spring/Summer collection.

Step Aboard in 2017

Unload your luggage aboard M/Y ULYSSES for a memorable charter in 2017. The 56.01m Benetti superyacht is available for charter through Fraser and accommodates up to 12 guests in six lavish staterooms. She complements a spectacularly luxurious interior with a range of indulgent superyacht amenities, including a gym, a Jacuzzi, sauna, elevator and a range of the latest water toys. The sun deck features a projector for al fresco movie nights under the stars. The luxury motor yacht is offered for charter at a heavily reduced rate until May 2017: charters for corporate charters and events are offered from EUR 255,000 (originally 280,000); all other charters are offered from EUR 200,000.

Get your superyacht charter off on the right foot with luxury luggage that is not only beautifully crafted, but also suits the yachting way of travelling.

    The Brunello Cuccinelli luggage is superb. Because the bag is produced with leather material it gives it class and fancy. It’s perfect for a yacht trip.
