Some of the world’s most prestigious, newest and largest yachts now display interiors designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD). 

 

RWD-DESIGNED YACHTS

Of particular note are several luxury mega yacht charter vessels launched in the past 2 years, such as 62 meter BATON ROUGE, 62 meter ICON, 60 metre ANDREAS L, and 57 meter TWIZZLE.  With this in mind, one vessel in the 1-800 Yacht Charters fleet, is 58 meter KOKOMO.  She was recently selected as the 2010 Best Sailing Yacht over 40 meters by the International Superyacht Society.

 

REDMAN STYLE

Consequently, the studio is proud of its “open door, open plan” style.  Designers work in a relaxed yet focused environment. It is also unrestricted by a single, set house style.  Redman Whiteley Dixon handles all aspects of interior and exterior yacht design. Their expertise spans 10 meter tenders to 160 meter superyachts.

As much of the USA digs out from winter blizzards, thoughts turn to the summer and the warm appeal of a Mediterranean yacht charter.   Alas, summer is still a long, 6 months away…

Or is it?

From the Bay of Plenty to the Bay of Islands , the region offers pristine beaches, volcanoes, mountains and stunning scenery (as seen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy).

The 56 meter (183ft 8in) Benetti motor yacht GALAXY will call this area home for the next 4 months.  The superyacht boasts room for 12 guests.

Motor yacht GALAXY has an elevator running the lower deck guest from lobby all the way up to the sun deck. The lift carries four people at a time, and the shaft being in glass, tends to act as an atrium, carrying light through the heart of the yacht. The lift to the sundeck is built into the gymnasium.

This floating villa is in Bristol condition and led by a seasoned skipper, Captain Dughall MacLachlainn and a crew of 14.

Glorious Greece – The Perfect Summer Cruising

Posted on

Greece yacht.  Aerial photo of motoryacht Christina O.GREECE YACHT CHARTER

As a destination, Greece is a sensory celebration. It’s a dance with history and ancient gods, and a courtship between natural beauty and modern luxuries. It’s also an invitation to indulge in a slower pace and simpler pleasures, like savoring a taverna meal complemented by a fantastic local wine you’ve most likely never heard of.

 

TRAVEL BY YACHT

Of course, the ideal way to explore the myriad of small Greek islands is to rent a private yacht.    

For travelers with experience at the helm, a bareboat charter is the most affordable option for exploration.  Similar to renting a car, you do the “driving” by serving as your own skipper.  Yes, you and your travel companions must also do the cooking and cleaning, but when it comes to saving money, it is hard to top the appeal of a bareboat charter, especially sail boat charters as compared to power boats.

If you are not qualified to operate your own boat, or simply desire a hire level of comfort and amenities, some of the largest yachts in the world can be rented in the land of the gods.  

The famous yacht CHRISTINA O calls Greece home.  The private vessel of the late Greek shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis, this yacht offers huge deck spaces and the indulgence of an original mosaic-tiled swimming pool. In addition to the Jacuzzi, there are three public lounges, a gym, and a game room – and the famous bar where Sir Winston Churchill first met Jackie Kennedy.

When to go to Greece?  Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters recommends visiting Greece between May and  October.

We prefer the so-called “shoulder season” (May and September/October), since the weather is generally good, and you’ll enjoy more elbow room and often better prices in restaurants and gift shops.”

When to book a yacht charter in Greece?   NOW is the time to make your 2011 Greece yacht charter reservations.

For help in identifying the right yacht for your style and budget, call our specialists, toll-free at 1-800-YACHTCHARTERS (800-922-4824), or click https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/
