Posted on

luxury motor yacht jana maldives yacht rental powerboat charter yacht holiday iates

After this weekend’s 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Feadship motor yacht JANA will hoist her anchor and reposition for the winter season in the Maldives. 

Expected to arrive in mid December, the classic 46-meter Feadship yacht charter vessel is currently available for a Christmas reservation. 

Motoryacht JANA will remain in the Maldives through mid April and joins a growing list of yachts for hire in this Indian Ocean paradise. 

Other megayachts committed to the winter season in the Maldives include the 64 meter Benetti motoryacht SILVER ANGEL, sail yacht PERLA DEL MARE, the 60 meter motor yacht ARKLEY, and the 150 foot motoryacht MOECCA.

Serving as a privately-chartered spectator yacht at this year’s Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi, Feadship yacht JANA will complete one more charter in Abu Dhabi in November before embarking for the Indian Ocean. 

Jana Sheeder, President, SailAway Yacht Charters, luxury yacht charter vacations

The prospect of offering alternative destinations for winter charters is exciting for JANA Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  “Our team is committed to expanding the destination options available to our clients,” says Sheeder.  “A winter holiday in the warm waters of the Maldives is an excellent alternative to the traditional Caribbean yacht charter vacation.”

The Maldives offer visitors the chance to enjoy crystal clear water and sugar white, sandy beaches.   Located in the Indian Ocean,  the Republic of Maldives is an island nation formed by a double-wrapped chain of twenty-six (26) atolls. The winter water temperature is amazingly warm, about 31 degrees celsius (87 degrees fahrenheit), and the opportunities for snorkeling and watersports seem endless. There are hundreds of reefs, many in the shallow waters of enclosed lagoons.

We hope to add even more megayachts to the growing list available this winter in the Maldives.

Posted on

charter sailboat luxury sailboat cruises rent a yacht charter vela bvi sailboat charter

The popular classic schooner ELENA, a modern recreation of the famous 1928 Trans Atlantic record holder designed by Nathaniel Herreshoff, has announced plans to offer Caribbean yacht charter vacations this winter.

Sailing across the pond from the Mediterranean, sail yacht ELENA is already reserved for the New Year’s holiday week, but has many other prime dates available through April, 2012.

Fantastic performance under sail will make S/Y Elena a favorite for sailing regattas, while her luxurious 5 cabin interior will appeal to families more interested in conventional sail boat charters.  True to her racing spirit, this reincarnated superyacht promises both beauty and grace under sail as well as uncompromising speed.

Guest cabins are exquisitely finished with mahogany paneling while all interior ornamental details closely follow the original Herreshoff drawings. The beautiful varnished mahogany panels are accentuated by white painted ceilings and ceiling beams.

In tribute to the original designer and builder, each cabin is named after a famous Herreshoff schooner: 
Katoura, the Owner’s cabin, boasts a large double bed, and the wide dimensions allow space for a full writing desk.
The Westward cabin also offers a double bed, as does the optional Captain’s cabin, Irolita. The two twin cabins, Ingomar and Mariette, are located adjacent to one another on the starboard side.

Ensuite bathrooms have separate showers and toilets and are finished with elegant, period-simulated fittings. There is ample closet space and an abundance of natural light through the overhead skylights as well as three portholes in every stateroom, and four in the owner’s cabin.
