LYANA is now named SWAN. (Click to access her profile and to book this gorgeous Benetti!)
Entering her third season in the Mediterranean, motor yacht SWAN looks as fresh and inviting as the day she launched.
The Benetti yacht charter vessel is the epitome of elegance. Someone effectively blended contemporary style with classic touches.
Sixty meter SWAN and her crew are now seasoned veterans. They are ready to deliver a highly satisfying summer charter. This yacht is capable of cruising at 14 knots. She shares Western Mediterranean. Her itinerary includes destinations such as the Amalfi Coast, Corsica, Sardinia, Monaco, St Tropez and the Côte d’Azur.
Let’s take a closer look at M/Y SWAN. Interior by Paris-based Pierre-Yves Rochon design. It offers classic shapes, set in a color scheme of beige and crème for furnishing and upholstery. Everything is framed by dark lacquered wood for cabinets and joinery. Uniquely, a collection of fine artwork by Botero, Dali, and others spreads throughout the interior.
One charter guest described this area as, “Tasteful, with an overall calm and hospitable feel.”
A central spiral staircase connects all interior decks. Adjacent to this central area is the owner’s office which serves as the entrypoint to the master suite. Lavishly spacious, this room has the look and feel of a fully-equipped spa. The massive bathroom features a rainforest shower area with hydro-therapy jets. The stateroom itself is bathed in natural light via a circular central skylight, and a semicircular array of windows that turn this room into a luxurious private observation lounge with panoramic views beyond the yacht’s bow.
Motor yacht SWAN can accommodate up to twelve guests, with additional staterooms found on the upper and lower decks. Located on the lower deck, two doubles and two twins can be found, all adjacent to the central staircase. Each cabin has sumptuous ensuite bathrooms.
On the upper deck, a VIP suite doubles as both an extra stateroom as well as a massage and wellness area. A licensed masseuse is onboard and at the guests’ disposal.
The aft section of the upper deck features an open-air saloon where a bar, games table, and multiple seating arrangements can be found. Although this may be true, the large space allows for both intimate dinner parties as well as elegant cocktail parties.
Charter rates from €320,000 per week.

Was it really ten months ago that nearly two dozen of the largest luxury sailing charter vessels gathered in Porto Cervo, Sardinia for one of the most popular yachting events in the Mediterranean, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta?
This past week, 28 superyacht vessels converged at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda base in Virgin Gorda for the third “Caribbean” edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, sponsored by luxury Italian brand Loro Piana.
If there is one yacht builder that stands out among all others at these events, it has to be Perini Navi. Since the early eighties, Perini Navi has built luxury sailing charter vessels in a class of their own. To date, the company has built 52 yachts, measuring up to 88 meters in length.
Flagship of the fleet is the Perini Navi yacht MALTESE FALCON, delivered in 2006. A masterpiece of technology and design, the 88 meter yacht MALTESE FALCON is without equal. At the 2013 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta, Perini Navi will be represented by 38m cruiser/racer sail yacht P2, as well as the sleek and stylish 54m yacht PARSIFAL III.
Other Perini Navi yacht charter vessels often available in the Caribbean include 56 meter yacht SALUTE, and the 50 meter yacht BARACUDA.

Looking for a new cruising destination?
A wondrous oasis set amidst mystical red deserts, breathtaking mountain backdrops, and glorious emerald seas, these ancient lands are truly spectacular. From the rugged peaks and whitewashed villages fragrantly perfumed by frankincense in Oman, to the glistening modern skyline anchored by the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, to the to the serene seafront of the Doha Corniche in Qatar.
An exceptional charter yacht befitting this idyllic Arabian paradise, luxury catamaran DAMRAK II, a 2011 Sunreef 70 model, is certain to exceed expectations of the most discriminating charterers. This yacht is designed with the elegance and speed of a motor yacht, yet offers the shallow-draft advantage of a sail catamaran, allowing guests to cruise right up to the edge of a sandy beach.
“Luxury power catamarans (powercats) are in demand. They are steady and sturdy, and they typically offer more room to clients due to beam of double hulls. People want the speed of a motoryacht and the width and stability of a sailing catamaran. With Damrak II powercat, they get the best of both worlds.”
Tastefully chic and spacious accommodations offer divine comfort for up to 8 guests in one full-beam master, one king, one queen, and one double deluxe cabin. The published weekly rate is €39 000 EUROS, plus all running expenses.

Back in February, we speculated the cost to rent a private yacht in the fabled south of France was about to go up, due to a ruling by the European Union the VAT exemption on chartering yachts in France was not compliant with EU VAT rules. Now, France’s efforts to seek a VAT exemption have failed, as the European Court of Justice has ruled the French tax exemption for commercial vessels is illegal.
What does the ruling mean?
On March 21, the European Court of Justice (in European Commission v. France; C-197/12) held that French legislation providing a VAT exemption for some commercial vessels used for navigation on the high seas that carry passengers for remuneration or are used for commercial activities, “…does not comply with Directive 2006/112/EC (the VAT directive), specifically with article 148(a), (c), and (d).
“ With the approach of the summer charter season at hand, yacht managers and owners are scrambling to make sure all paperwork is in compliance with the ECJ’s ruling.”
“The Climbing Wall really could be the client request for 2013/14 and the interest in it, even in these last ten days, has blown us away. We hope to have a few climbing walls on yachts before summer really kicks in – and they’ll all be the talking point of the bay.”
“In our superyacht industry, the more high-tech gadgets and premium toys you have onboard, the greater your odds are to secure charters from repeat clients,” explains Sheeder. “Many clients will return each season to the comfortable surroundings of the same destination, but they will expect the yacht they choose to provide fresh entertainment options with each new charter.”
