How See-LEVEL VR Technology is Revolutionizing Seasickness Medication

Have you ever dreamt of island hopping around the Mediterranean or cruising the Caribbean on board a luxury charter yacht but suffer from the overwhelming discomfort of seasickness? See-LEVEL has the solution!

See-LEVEL founder Dudley Jackson dreamed of bringing up his two children sailing around the Pacific, so he sold his home and moved the family onboard a 40-foot yacht. Within days he realised his dream was impossible – Dudley was among the one in four people prone to seasickness. The family cut their trip to six months amongst New Zealand’s calmer inshore waters, but Dudley’s mind kept racing.

“I thought, if Virtual Reality could have such a powerful effect on the brain that it caused motion sickness, what would happen if things were reversed – could VR remove seasickness just as quickly?”.

And so began his journey to create the brand-new See-LEVEL VR headset which offers fast and effective relief from the symptoms of seasickness by immersing the wearer in an alternative seascape characterised by stability and calm. Experiencing this tranquil virtual world gradually alleviates discomfort and within a few minutes of exposure, wearers begin to feel a sense of relief. Once the headset is removed, most people will be fine, but some may need another few minutes wearing the headset for their symptoms to pass completely.

CharterWorld were excited to try it in the hope of helping one of our very own team, who has endured crippling seasickness for years. And yes …. she really did choose a career in the yacht charter industry despite feeling sick just looking at boats on the water! She emotionally reported it to be ‘life-changing’.

“After 15 minutes of wearing these VR glasses, I removed them and stayed on board successfully for another 24 hours, without a hint of discomfort, nausea or a headache”, she said.

See-LEVEL is available for individuals to purchase and use on their travels, or the new See-LEVEL Yacht Edition is a complete kit designed for charter yachts to keep on board. 

Eco-conscious interiors of explorer yacht FLEXPLORER 146 unveiled by Winch Design

The third in the explorer yacht range FLEXPLORER 146 has been announced by Winch Design in partnership with Cantiere delle Marche. Driven by the new owner and his family’s deep commitment to nature and sustainability, the interior will showcase a remarkable fusion between environmental responsibility and cutting-edge design.


The family are fascinated with maintaining a sustainable lifestyle as they plan to spend lengthy periods at sea. To support this philosophy the interior will be crafted from eco-friendly materials with non-toxic formulations such as reclaimed seashell composite, recycled fishing nets and woven grass, using processes that create low levels of EMF and low VOCs. Even the outfitting contractor has been selected based on their carbon-neutral bustiness model.

Sustainable furnishings

The story behind some of these materials is truly fascinating: eggshell wall finishes make use of some of the 250,000 tonnes of eggshell waste produced annually by the food industry; carpets made from recycled fishing nets contribute to the reduction of waste in the oceans; and seashell composite in the bathrooms which gives an iridescent finish and a new lease of life for discarded shells. Rustic charm is brought by recycled wood chip, offcut timer and palm leather – an eco-conscious alternative to animal leather.

Innovative engineering also focusses on environmental sustainability and incorporates a selective catalytic reduction system enabling the yacht to comply with Tier III IMO emission standards and travel to marine protected areas and sanctuaries such as the Galapagos.

Bathroom finishes

The teams from Winch Design and Cantier delle Marche have worked closely with the client throughout the process to challenge conventional products and processes and create a pioneering eco-conscious yacht. It is a pivotal moment for Winch Design which brings together years of research into ‘green’ alternatives and demonstrates their ongoing commitment to sustainability.

Guest Cabins Material Board

Creative Director at Winch, Jim Dixon commented, “Our studio has an important agenda to change our clients’ perception of conscious luxury, and we have a wonderful opportunity in this project to make a significant step forward”.

Winch Design have a distinguished history in the field of superyacht design and many of their exciting creations are available for charter all over the world. Take a look at our collection of Winch Design yachts and contact us if you would like our help in planning your next charter vacation – perhaps to the Galapagos Islands.

34m superyacht PROJECT 111.11 in build at Van der Valk shipyard

Luxury yacht PROJECT 111.11 is now under construction at Van de Valk Shipyard in the Netherlands to an exterior design by Guido de Groot and interiors by Carla Guilhem. Across 34m (111’6”) and four decks she offers plenty of entertainment facilities plus accommodation in five staterooms.  

Luxury yacht PROJECT 111.11 from Van der Valk

Guido de Groot worked closely with the owners to create a fresh exterior design. “They had clear ideas of what they wanted having been unable to find anything suitable among the semi-custom and series options available on today’s market,” says De Groot. “Four decks on a 34-metre yacht is no small feat and every deck has its own specific requirements.”

Van der Valk’s head of sales added, “the design needed to accommodate the owners’ key wishes for five staterooms, including a full-beam master on the main deck, a sky lounge, a main deck salon, spacious crew quarters and a multifunctional beach club/sports-garage.”

The profile features straight lines and forward-facing angles with an arch that rises diagonally from the main deck to the hard top in a single line. There are large windows on the lower deck and low bulwarks which emphasise exterior aesthetic and allow for seamless views from the main salon.

PROJECT 111.11 aft deck rendering

On the sun deck a forward-facing jacuzzi is surrounded by a generous seating area and a bar, while the midships section offers a U-shaped lounge with a flexible table that facilitates everything from formal dining to cocktail parties. Aft-facing sunbeds complete the picture of a space well used, with an ingenious system of doors and panels creating a partition when the weather requires.

PROJECT 111.11 Bridge deck aft

The yacht boasts a wealth of storage and facilities to enable self-sufficiency allowing the owners to spend more days at sea without going into port – every space from under the sunbeds to beneath the sofas has been utilised.

PROJECT 111.11 main salon

The interior design evolved over time with the client giving carte blanche to designer Carl Guilhem after they abandoned their original concept in favour of her alternative suggestions. “We have opted for a futuristic feel with super-smooth rounded shapes and a monochrome look with trims and frames that emphasise the neutral colours,” says Guilhem. “It’s all very elegant and will give the sensation that you’ve never seen anything like it before. To achieve this, we are working closely with the yard to simplify construction of the elements and frames, with most of furniture being loose… And I can’t wait to see the results!”

PROJECT 111.11 owner’s suite

A full-beam master suite on the main deck offers a large walk-in wardrobe and as the owners will be onboard for extended periods, the private office has been extensively equipped. The lower deck features four ensuite staterooms to complement the main deck master – two large VIPs amidships and two twins).

Delivery of luxury yacht  PROJECT 111.11 is due in Q3 2024 and we look forward to bringing you more information as launch day approaches.
