SeaDream Yacht Club is the yachting venture by Norwegian entrepreneur Atle Brynestad, who founded Seabourn Cruise Line, and Larry Pimentel who was President of Seabourn under Brynestad and later President and CEO of the merged Cunard and Seabourn. Pimentel is President and CEO of the Miami, Florida-headquartered SeaDream Yacht Club and a co-owner. Brynestad is Chairman.
The company operates SeaDream I and SeaDream II, twin, ultra-luxury mega yacht cruisers that operate on mostly seven-day sailings in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Greek Islands and the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia and into the black Sea.
The yachts are not only ideal for discerning travelers seeking an unstructured experience but also for small meetings and incentive groups or individual private family gatherings. They are available for full charter. Recent honors, awards and accolades include:
Conde Nast Traveler magazine named SeaDream Yacht Club the Worlds Best Small Passenger Shipping Line for 2006. Additionally, SeaDream scored higher than any other cruise line – large or small – in this Readers Poll –
and was the only cruise line rated in the top 100 Worlds Best Travel Experiences.
Travel + Leisure magazine named SeaDream Yacht Club Worlds Best Small Ship Cruise Line for 2007.
SeaDream I and II shared the top Five Star Club award in the authoritative Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships 2009 guidebook. Berlitz guide author Douglas Ward created a special category Utterly Exclusive for only three vessels he said were above luxury. Of the three, two were SeaDream I and II.
Cruise Magazine, leading UK travel publication, named SeaDream I Worlds Best Small Cruise Vessel for 2006.
