Joining a fleet of the largest yachts for hire, the gigayacht still has open charter dates in the months of August and September. At the conclusion of the summer season, the yacht will re-position across the Atlantic and join the St. Martin yacht charter fleet.
Feadship yacht AIR is helmed by co-captains Stephen Warren and Mark Finch and boasts a young and enthusiastic crew, including an excellent young British chef, new to the industry. They are all looking forward to a spectacular season.
The yacht features a sleek, elegant exterior with a unique matte black steel hull. The minimalist interior, created by Remi Tessier, is stunning. Amenities include an 8 meter-long pool located on the main deck forward, and a sun deck with full gym and Jacuzzi. Other features include an elevator to all decks, massage and steam rooms, and a fully-certified commercial helicopter pad (helipad).

Helipads on luxury yachts are commonplace. Ondeck helipads no longer turn heads at the quay in Monaco. The type of helicopter on the pad still garners envious gazes, however.
The EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style aircraft is not just about luxury but the effective and flexible use of space. It is the only he-lo in its class that can seat up to eight passengers. For the cabin layout, all seats are mounted on rails and can be quickly and easily reconfigured/removed for additional room for luggage. There are also multi-function boxes with features such as a mini-frig, cup holder and table, and 15-inch TV monitor and DVD player.
The aft-cabin features a high-capacity luggage compartment with room for baggage, golf clubs, even bicycles.
Like the R-Class models that inspired it, the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style is the most versatile and spacious helicopter in its class. Available 2011, this model will surely be onboard Virgin Island yacht charter vessels right away.

Presenting the brand new classic schooner sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA. As they say, “everything old is new again.” The 47 meter Italian-built yacht is the latest sail-powered superyacht.
The Germania NOVA (“new”) design makes this new yacht unusual and spectacular. She is a replica of a classic 1908 yacht named Germania. The original vessel had a storied history before sinking off the coast of Florida in a hurricane.

The schooner is the seventh Florida Underwater Archaeological Preserve. Dedication made in 2000. Germania is now part of the US National Register of Historic Places.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, proudly shares that her companies (1-800 Yacht Charters and Bareboat.com) donate floating mooring buoys for over the Germania (Half Moon) site.
“The unfortunately wreck created a reef, and yachtsmen and women regularly visit to snorkel and enjoy the underwater magic that the yacht created. We are so happy to provide a way for yachts to tie to protect the fragile reef below.”
Technological advances and comforts aboard the replica are awe-inspiring. For instance, the sailing yacht features satellite television. She has flat screen panel tvs in the main saloon, master stateroom, and all guest cabins. Cinema-quality 5.1 Dolby surround sound DVD service is available in the main saloon and master stateroom. Guest cabins have radios with CD and MP3 players. iPod connections are present throughout the yacht. She is a charter build with many features all amenities.

Internet rumor mill ignored. Actress Blake Lively happily spends quality time with new beau, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Websites circulated photos showing the “Gossip Girl” actress posing naked. Blake and Leo were unphased. They were seen relaxing and laughing onboard motoryacht SEVEN SEAS. They enjoyed Spielberg’s multi-million dollar superyacht during the Cannes Film Festival.
Lively’s spokeswoman issued a statement saying the photos aren’t real.
“The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites … are 100 percent FAKE,” the spokeswoman said. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.“
The Internet was abuzz last week. Five photos of the naked, busty blond taking iPhone bathroom selfies appeared on celebrity websites. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton wrote,
“Blake Lively won’t be happy about this,” while site Zap2It, suggested the pictures were old.
Lively will take legal action. She will go against any outlets that publish the photos.
Earlier this year, she was hired as the face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign.

What remains less clear is the amount of protection we need. The confusing jumble of sun protection numbers, symbols, and claims on the sunscreen bottles can be daunting.
Soon, simplified labeling standards will help consumers cut through the confusion. Starting next summer, consumers can look for SPF 15 sunscreens with the words, “broad spectrum” on the label, and feel confident they’re being protected from an increased risk of cancer.
Currently, protection standards only to ultraviolet B rays, which cause sunburn. Under the new rules outlined by the Food and Drug Administration, sunscreens will also have to protect against ultraviolet A rays, often associated with skin cancer.
The new guidelines are designed to enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens and make them easier to use.
Sunscreens with less than an SPF of 15 or that aren’t “broad spectrum” will have to carry a warning label that reads, “This product has been shown only to help prevent sunburn, not skin cancer or early skin aging.”
Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charter Consultants and 1-800 Yacht Charters, says the clarification is good news.
“Whether on a luxury sailing charter in the Caribbean, or sitting in port watching the action at the Monaco Grand Prix, it seems every client wants the same thing – a suntan,” says Sheeder. “Until now, most people judged sunscreen by one factor – the SPF number. Avoiding sunburn is important; thereby reducing cancer risk is critical.”(NOTE: Did you know that you can get melanoma – skin cancer – in your eyes? Make sure to always wear polarized sunglasses to protect yourself against cataracts and melanoma!)
“These changes to sunscreen labels are an important part of helping consumers have the information they need so they can choose the right sun protection for themselves and their families,” said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of FDA’s drug division.
Under the new rules:
• Sunscreen marketing claims like “waterproof” and “sweatproof,” will be prohibited. The FDA says such claims are “exaggerations of performance.”
• The FDA seeks to cap the highest SPF value at 50. Unless companies can provide results of further testing that support a higher number.
• A four-star system currently used by some companies to rate UVA protection must be phased out. The FDA decided the star system was too confusing to consumers. Instead, protection against UVA should be proportional to protection against UVB, which is already measured using SPF.
The SPF number indicates the amount of sun exposure necessary to cause sunburn on skin protected by sunscreen, as compared with unprotected skin. For example, SPF rating of 30 means it takes a person 30 times longer to burn. Subsequently, wearing that sunscreen than with no sunscreen at all.
The new guidelines do not take effect until next summer. Many companies already adopted some of the labeling outlined by the FDA. Both Coppertone and Neutrogena sunscreens already boast “broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.”
The National Cancer Institute reports. Last year 6,800 people in the U.S. received melanoma diagnoses. It is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. An estimated 8,700 died from the disease. Almost $2 billion spend each year treating the disease.

Life in the oceans is at “imminent risk of the worst spate of extinctions in millions of years due to threats such as climate change and over-fishing.” It goes on to say, “We now face losing marine species and entire marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, within a single generation.”
Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charter Consultants and 1-800 Yacht Charters, feels that everyone involved in the private yacht rental industry needs to take warning.
“No matter how you are involved in the ocean, you need to take responsibility. For instance, if you are a yacht rental agent. In addition, the owner of a mega yacht charter vessel. Or subsequently, the crew onboard a superyacht. You have a stake in what is happening to our oceans, “ says Sheeder.
“Part of what appeals to people who rent a private yacht is the chance to interact with nature. To swim among the creatures of the sea and to witness the rainbow of colors of a living coral reef. When you see a report like this, you realize just how at-risk our reefs really are.”
