SeaDream Yacht Club was founded in September of 2001 by Norwegian entrepreneur Atle Brynestad (also the founder of Seabourn Cruise Line) and Larry Pimentel. These visionaries recruited a team of veterans highly experienced in the fields of management and travel which has led to the emergence of a company perfectly suited to passengers seeking an intimate sailing experience with, “No clocks, no crowds, no lines, no stress” and a casual atmosphere.
This prestigious company offers luxurious and highly intimate cruises which take the form of yacht-style experiences. This deviation from ‘traditional cruises’ is so integral to the company that their tagline is, “It’s yachting, not cruising”.
