Yachting Partners International says the 137-foot Kingship Ocean's Seven is planning to charter this summer in Costa Rica, with inquiries being accepted now.

Costa Rica, known for its sportfishing and rugged cruising scenery, is a destination where precious few crewed charter yachts are offered each year. The owner of Ocean's Seven is making the yacht available there, as well as in Panama and Belize, from now until mid-June, and then again in Costa Rica from mid-July through September.

Ocean's Seven is a 2012 build that accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms. She charters with eight crew and is built for long-range cruising, making her a good match for a destination like Costa Rica that is far from major hubs of yachting services.

Onboard amenities include a hot tub, sundeck barbecue, and interiors by the Dutch firm Vripack.
