With much of the northeast United States buried under a blizzard of snow, here’s a new superyacht amenity guaranteed to give you a “sunny” outlook!
LMV’s Lasy Solar sun bed self-orientates according to the position of the sun. How neat is that??
Imagine you are onboard your Lurssen Yacht Charter somewhere off the coast of Capri. Your solar-powered sun bed slowly rotates to keep the heat on your body. What’s that you say – it’s starting to get a little too hot? No worries – there’s a built-in Mist Breeze cooling system to cool you down!
Of course, total comfort is a must, so the bed is covered in marine-grade luxury leather.
Thanks to its solar power source, the Lasy Solar sun bed doesn’t need connecting to a yacht’s power supply.
The manufacturer plans to have the product website for Lasy Solar sun beds up and running soon.
Experience the luxury of a private luxury Lürssen yacht like MARTHA ANN or HUNTRESS. Contact the yacht charter specialists at 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ to plan The Superyacht Experience for you!

If you are considering a Caribbean Yacht Charter in 2011, you can get into the superyacht groove by attending the London International Boat Show, January 7 – 16, 2011.
This is a must-see marine experience for yacht lovers. All the old show favorites will be there, plus a whole host of improvements.
Come enjoy exclusive new features and attractions, plus more exhibitors, boats, and products than ever before.
Crewed catamaran charters are all the rage these days in the islands, primarily due to the large inventory of watersport toys carried onboard the yachts.
With an emphasis on toys, the centerpiece of the show is an all-new Watersports Action Pool. Measuring a massive 70m x 24m, this huge pool will host a wide selection of activities including canoeing and kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, wakeboarding, dinghy sailing, and windsurfing .
Visitors have the opportunity to “have a go” at these activities – free of charge. In addition, visitors will be able to see demos by the experts including wakeboarding and kayaking.
Don’t miss the Sunset Rum Beach Bar situated right next to the pool. It’s the ideal place to chill out and watch the action!
Winfrey, on the left, enjoys the famous harbor’s glittering waters on board the bareboat sailboat charter yacht “Eagle Rock.” She joins Russell Crowe, a Sydney local, tailed by a flotilla of some 20 other yachts.
On the right, Oprah wears a white cap given to her by Crowe and emblazoned with the logo of his South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league team. She beams as she sits at the stern of the bareboat yacht, talking sport with the “Gladiator” star.
“I’m having the time of my life,” Winfrey said.
The harbor features heavily on the megastar’s weekend itinerary. For instance, the glittering waterfront reception Saturday night, complete with fireworks, then later, Sunday morning, feature of a climb of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and a visit to Bondi Beach.
Finally, Oprah’s whirlwind tour of Australia will be broadcast as a four episode “Ultimate Australian Adventure” in January 2011.

The largest solar-powered boat in the world is MS TÛRANOR. She is a phenomenal sun-loving vessel, and she just arrived in Miami, FL, our sunny hometown.
As I gaze at the deck of MS TÛRANOR, covered in solar panels, I wonder how and if the yacht charter industry will embrace solar powered luxury yachts.
The MS TÛRANOR, also know as yacht PLANETSOLAR, is a pioneer for sustainable energy technology on water. She is on an around-the-world tour. She is unlike any current luxury mega yacht charter vessel, This amazing catamaran is a 31-meter multihull. She is topped by a large array of photovoltaic solar panels. Built in 14 months, the biggest solar boat ever built has impressive dimensions and is yet both silent and clean.
Imagine a charter in the sunny Mediterranean, cruising from port to port without burning expensive fuels and oils.
Solar enables you to slide along like a sailboat, for example, versus the constant drone of engines and some nauseating odors of diesel fuel. Being propelled by pollution-free electrical engines is a dream.
In addition, eliminating fossil fuel greatly reduces carbon dioxide CO2 emissions. This is an important step for this industry. Yachting needs to project a greater commitment to protecting our oceans and environment.
The solar catamaran PLANETSOLAR employs the leading-edge technology available on the market. The intention is to demonstrate that by innovative use of existing materials and technology, high-performance solar mobility can be realized today.
In conclusion, we are truly witnessing a new era in sustainable energy technology on the seas.

The tiny nation of Belize took a giant step today in a global effort. It decided to safeguard the oceans by banning all forms of trawling in the country’s waters.
At first, Belize ignored international calls to ban the destructive fishing gear. But when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recently threatened to strip the Belize Barrier Reef of its World Heritage Site status, the government finally took notice.
Facing UNESCO repercussions, Prime Minister Dean Barrow’s administration took action. He negotiated the buy-out of the country’s commercial shrimp trawlers. He also initiated a ban on all future trawling.
Shrimp trawls are notorious for the amount of bycatch they haul in. Thousands of sea turtles, marine mammals, and untargeted fish are caught in shrimp trawlers around the world every year. Meanwhile, bottom trawlers’ weighted nets effectively bulldoze the ocean floor with every pass. This destroys sensitive corals and anything else in their way.
Particularly at risk is the Belize Barrier Reef, which is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. This is the second largest coral reef system in the world after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The reef is a destination for sailors, divers, and snorkelers around the world.
Both bareboat and crewed catamaran charters have increased significantly in recent years along the coast of Belize. Seasoned sailors and vacationers seeking less-crowded anchorages have discovered the unspoiled charm of the Belize Barrier Reef.
In conclusion, the stoppage goes into effect December 31st. Belize then becomes one of the first countries in the world to institute a complete and permanent ban on trawling in all its waters.
