Alaska Yacht Charter: 122-Foot Talos is Giving a Free Day with One-Week Bookings

Alaska yacht charter is one of the most exciting summer experiences you can have. Cruising amid glaciers, watching humpback whales breach into the air, dining on fresh salmon and king crab legs, sitting in your charter yacht’s hot tub watching snow-capped mountains in the distance—all of these moments are likely to occur within a single week’s yacht charter in this most memorable of destinations.

And now, you can enjoy an extra day for free. That’s because the owner of the 122-foot Flagship Talos is giving a bonus eighth day of charter to anyone who books a full week this summer. It’s a value of about $13,500, based on Talos’ regular weekly base rate of $95,000.


Our experts at Yachtstore like Talos for a number of reasons. She is a 1993 build that chartered in Alaska for many summers with the name Shogun, earning a strong reputation for local knowledge and excellent guest service. A new owner bought the yacht and put her through a major refit in 2014, changing her name to Talos while upgrading her décor as well as her audiovisual systems, which now include Apple TV. The new owner also retained Capt. Jordan Wells, who has seven years’ worth of experience chartering in Alaskan waters. Taken together, these factors make Talos one of the top motoryachts available for charter in Alaska during the summer season.

Also noteworthy is that Talos is often the only motoryacht with four king-bed staterooms that is offered for Alaska yacht charters. Other charter yachts in the area typically have a combination of king, queen and twin beds, making them ideal for families. Talos can comfortably accommodate four couples, and she is a good option for groups of friends who want to charter together and split the weekly base rate.

In addition to standard Alaska yacht charter itineraries that include the ports of Juneau and Sitka, the crew aboard Talos can arrange side trips for salmon fishing, zip-lining and helicopter flights that will take you to glaciers. Floatplane sightseeing trips also are an option.

For anyone who simply wants to hang out with the yacht, Talos carries Wave Runners, standup paddle boards, kayaks and fishing gear. The 18-foot tender is available for short excursions to fish, hike or sightsee along the coastline.

The Alaska yacht charter season is shorter than the summer season in a lot of other destinations; while charter yachts can be found across the Mediterranean from May well into October, Alaska yacht charter tends to see its prime cruising weather in July and August. That means Talos has limited availability. The reality of the seasonal changes, plus the free bonus day being offered, tell us that anyone wanting to get aboard Talos in Alaska this summer needs to book sooner rather than later.
