Top 7 ways to spend your extra payday

Posted in:

One of the many benefits in the yachting industry is that, when payday comes around, you have enough disposable income to enjoy some of the finer things in life. One of the tough things can be deciding how to spend it!
We have partnered with IFX currency not only to give you a bonus payday but also to give you 7 inspirational ideas of how you can go about enjoying it.

  1. Go eat a Fleurburger 5000

This is known as the most expensive burger in the world. Is it worth the $5000 price tag? Well, there is only one way to find out. For your 5k you also get a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus to enjoy alongside your burger.

If you are tempted then it is time to book your flights to Vegas as this burger is only available in the Fleur restaurant. Yacht chefs looking to recreate this onboard can find the recipe here

  1. Invest in a Hermès handbag

We like to think that this is more of an investment (this isn’t our official financial advice!).

If you buy the Hermès Vivrevolte 24 you will still have some change left from your extra payday. It retails at €3,650. If you prefer to go classic with your Hermès you can get the Birkin Marine Sac de Voyage for €6700.

  1. Indulge in one bottle of Perrier-Jouet champagne

Get one of these sought after limited edition bottles for around $7,000. Not convinced? Look at the beauty of it:

  1. Never be late with the Breitling Navitimer 01

This watch boasts some impressive stats for the legendary model. Its bidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel ensures smooth and easy handling of the circular aviation slide rule.

If you know what that is then you are a deserving horophile. You can also customise the face, strap and dial which means you don’t have to worry about having the same watch as someone else onboard.

  1. Stay at the Taj Lake Palace

A Condé Nast 2016 Gold list winner the Taj Lake Palace is the best place to stay if you go to India. The hotel has been featured in both Octopussy and The Jewel in the Crown. This incredible hotel is only accessible by boat.

When you arrive, you are greeted with a shower of rose petals and a tray of luxury refreshments. A palace room with butler service is available for €600 per night, meaning you can relax for a couple of nights in complete luxury.

  1. Get the best powder available

Often overlooked for skiing, there are some amazing resorts in Japan. Powder hounds recommend the Niseko resort which has 5* snow as well as good restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. It is the best resort in Japan thanks to having the best powder, best off-piste terrain and best backcountry. You can go on a guided ‘storm chasing safari’ for around €3,000.
