Yolanda Foster Enjoys Charter on board S/Y INFINITY After Battling Illness

Star of Bravo’s ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Foster enjoyed a much needed vacation in Turkey on board the 46m/151ft charter yacht INFINITY as she celebrated getting her life back on track after a difficult few years battling Lyme Disease. 

Following diagnosis back in 2012, Yolanda Foster has been fighting the effects of the debilitating disease that can include neurological symptoms such as temporary paralysis of the facial muscles. She underwent surgery last year and has since been battling against the impact of the disease which has seen her at times struggle to ‘think, form sentences, and stay focused’.

Although the fight is far from over, the reality star seems on her way to recovery and chose to take to the seas for some rest and recuperation. The magnificent 2011-built sailing yacht INFINITY made the perfect platform for her relaxing charter vacation in the beautiful cruising grounds of Turkey spent alongside her music mogul husband David Foster.

The couple enjoyed sailing around the Turkish Islands, snorkelling in the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters and trying out superyacht INFINITY’s variety of watertoys. Yolanda posted a flurry of photos on Instagram documenting her time on board the yacht including one of her trying out paddle-boarding with the caption ‘Coming back to Life .... Mind, Body and Soul #NeverGivingUp #LymeWarrior’.

Aside from the luxury and exclusivity associated with superyachts, charter vacations also encompass the true sense of freedom, comfort and privacy of life on the open waves. As Stefanos Macrymichalos of Cape 4Yachting commented when we saw him at this year’s Mediterranean Yacht Show: ‘The magic of a yacht is that it is an island in itself and you can see things that are impossible to visit otherwise.’
