Luxury Yacht Charter: Monokinis Set Trend for Summer Luxury Yachting Swimwear

Posted on

It seems each spring, one of our most popular blog topics is the year’s trends in swimwear.

So, for our readers hoping to learn about the newest Feadship yacht charter vessel to launch, you’ll need to wait a few days while we help the ladies get a jump on this summer’s hottest swimsuit fashions.  
Editor’s note – the trend toward one-piece swimsuits that we saw in 2012 is continuing to grow as stylish celebrities, from full-figured girls like  Beyonce to the ultra-slim Taylor Swift, are rocking one-piece bathing suits known as “maillots.”  With so many A-listers going with one-piece suits, department stores and boutiques are stocking more monokinis and fewer bikinis.  The New York Post reports one-piece swimsuit sales are up around 20 percent in local New York shops.
In a salute to the maillot trend, here are our 2013 seasonal favorites:
NORMA KAMALI Vogue Lycra Collection (from $155 at Sacks Fifth Avenue)
We’ve grown accustomed to seeing photos of Beyonce onboard Caribbean yacht charter vessels wearing casual daywear; but you can’t stay onboard all day, especially when the warm waters of St Barts are calling.  Here’s Beyonce in a stylish Norma Kamali one piece:

Shimmery sequins add dazzle to the curve-loving silhouette. Designed in luxe Italian fabric for a silky-soft feel.

Luxury yacht charter: Report on Sinking Of Superyacht Yogi Due Soon

Posted on

Last February, we reported on the sinking of motor yacht YOGI, a 62 meter Mediterranean yacht charter vessel, that sank off the coast of Greece.

Motoryacht YOGI superyacht sank off of the Greek yacht charter coast

 
Built in Turkey by Proteksan Turquoise, motor yacht YOGI sank between the islands of Skyros and Psara, 19 nautical miles off the Greek coast. All on board were safely evacuated from the yacht by helicopters.

Now, a year later, the French Bureau d'enquetes sur les événements de Mer, has confirmed that the report on the sinking of superyacht Yogi will be published by the end of the week or early next week.
 
While the cause of the sinking is still unknown, the Hellenic Coast Guard will launch a criminal investigation into the incident after the issuance of the accident report.

Luxury Yacht Charter: What Is The Milk Run?

Posted on

Q:  I’ve read a few yachting articles that referred to superyachts seeking new cruising grounds as an alternative to the traditional “Milk Run.”  What is a milk run in yachting?      Amy S.

A:  Thank you for your question, Amy. Let’s start with a quick peek at the definition of milk run in an online dictionary:

“Milk Run” – Noun…A routine, uneventful journey.

In the world of megayacht rental vacations, there are two primary offerings that account for the bulk of the charter business:  Caribbean yacht charter vacations in the winter and spring, and Mediterranean yacht charter vacations in the summer and early fall.
milk run caribbean and mediterrean yacht charter vacations with sailaway yacht charter consultants
Charter clients are like most other travelers – they want to “get away,” but most prefer to get to their intended destination quickly. 
For North Americans, this means a short flight to the balmy Caribbean to sail, cruise, and visit islands like St. Thomas and St Barts.
The same holds true for Europeans, who can take drive or take a train to seaport destinations like St. Tropez, Positano, or Monaco.
Like any business, demand dictates the industry, and the owners of the megayachts instruct their crews to position in the Caribbean for winter/spring and then “cross the pond” to reposition in the south of France or Monaco for the summer season.
Thus, it is this routine, somewhat uneventful journey between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean that boaters refer to as the, “Milk Run.”
Side notes:  A handful of yacht owners have recently made efforts to entice potential customers to break away from the traditional cruising grounds, and consider yachting holidays in more exotic locales.  Some of the new up and coming destinations include:
Australia yacht charter
Middle East yacht charter
Antarctic yacht charter
Thailand yacht charter

Pay It Forward: Celebrity Explorer Donates Submarine To Science

Posted on

Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron has bequeathed his DEEPSEA CHALLENGER submarine, to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts, ultimately helping researchers there better understand life in Earth’s last unexplored frontier.

Deepsea Challenger submarine donation by James Cameron to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution celebrity doing for others

Last January, we profiled the profiled the epic attempt by three teams of modern-day explorers to reach the ocean's deepest point – the first attempt in over 50 years.  One team was lead by Cameron, another by British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, owner of the 32 meter (111 foot) luxury yacht charter vessel NECKER BELLE, and a third team by a Florida sub manufacturer, Patrick Lahey.

In March, 2012, Cameron bested Branson  and the underdog Lahey in a race to be the first explorer of the ocean deadliest trench in half a century.  Cameron plunged about seven miles to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific ocean, where temperatures are near freezing and the bone-crushing pressure is one thousand times greater than that at sea level.

In addition to donating the sub, Cameron will give nearly $1 million to help WHOI scientists and engineers make the sub's technology more widely available for deep-sea exploration.

“We’ve been sure to fund this enough that there are enough people and resources available to write this up, publish it, and therefore have it available,” Cameron said during a recent roundtable discussion in New York City with WHOI scientists. “To me, that’s an infinitely better outcome than [the sub] sitting dormant until I’m done with my next two movies, and maybe it comes to the tech community five or six years down the line when it’s already obsolete.”

Sail yacht charter: Superyacht Twizzle Promoted Asia Yacht Charter At Show in Singapore

The 57 meter Dutch-built luxury sailing charter vessel is the latest example of the growing number of superyachts venturing off the traditional Mediterranean-Caribbean, “Milk run.
Royal Huisman’s commercial manager Evert van Dishoeck commented on sail yacht TWIZZLE and the effort to see the charter market expand in Asia.  “The sailing superyacht market is a niche market, but we have had a lot of interest here at the (Singapore) show. It was a great opportunity to be able to display a unique yacht such as TWIZZLE…(she) truly combines the best of both worlds – the excitement of sailing, combined with the space, luxury and all amenities of a large motor yacht.”
“In Asia, there is a saying ‘every long march starts with a first step.’

Yacht Charters: May Day…where does the term originate?

Posted on

It's May 1st.  Happy May Day!

Where did the nautical term, "Mayday" originate?

Mayday May Day M'aider SOS radio distress call used by police ship captains firemen

Mayday is an emergency distress signal used in radio communications.  The term derived from the French word, "m'aider" (pronounced "mayDAY").  As a distress call, it is always repeated 3 times, and it is universally recognized.  When only used once (as in, "Mayday," versus "Mayday Mayday Mayday"), it is used to discuss an actual distress call that is under investigation.

M'aider in French means "help me," but in France, it is not considered a distress call.  It is a commonplace "help me," as in, "can you help me do this?"

Although it's a rare occurrence to hear this call on a luxury yacht charter vacation, this surely would have been used during the sinking of superyacht Yogi.
