M/Y Far Niente’s Chef Benoit Mercier Featured In Yachts International Magazine

Chartering a luxury yacht and enjoying a beautiful yachting vacation with family and friends is what Churchill Yacht Partners creates for clients around the world.  Whether clients are interested in the tropical islands of the Caribbean, cruising along the affluent coasts of the Mediterranean, enjoying breaching whales along the west coast of Mexico and Alaska or sailing the South Pacific, Churchill Yacht Partner’s Specialist have been creating amazing yachting vacations for 30 years.

One aspect of a yacht charter than is easily overlooked by Charterers is the yacht’s crew.   For some the crew that you interact with during a week-long yacht charter become friends.  One particular “crew” member than stands out in the yachting industry is Chef Benoit Mercier who is currently onboard Churchill Yacht Partners’ 130′ Westport motor yacht Far Niente.  Yachts International magazine editor Andrew Parkinson caught up with Chef Benoit Mercier in November.  His story is featured in the Cellar & Galley section of Yachts International’s February 2018 issue.

Far Niente accommodates 10 guests in 5 staterooms.  The yacht has 7 crew, including Captain Jason Bacon and Chef Benoit Mercier.  Far Niente and her crew enjoy chartering in the Caribbean in the winter, the Bahamas in the spring and New England during the summer and early fall.
