2 Epic Luxury Yacht Charter Vacations for Spring 2016

Posted on

NEW DESTINATIONS

Industry experts predict the continued growth of the yacht charter market in 2016.  Retail charter brokers identify new and exciting destinations and opportunities for their clients.  With the help of yacht maven Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, we take a look at 2 more.  Unique 2016 yachting vacations are spring’s most epic getaways.

 

HELI-SKIING YACHT CHARTER GREENLAND

At first glance, the idea of snow skiing and yachting seem mutually exclusive.  Typically, if you want to go boating in the winter or spring, you jet off for the warm waters of the Caribbean. Conversely, a ski vacation normally occurs far away from any yachting destinations, in a mountainous area like Vail or Kitzbühel

All the more reason a combination ski trip and yachting holiday is about as unique as it gets, as one of the world’s largest yachts for hire will be offering heli-skiing charters along the coast of the world’s largest island!

The 254 foot ice-breaking Icon motor yacht LEGEND is offering adventure charters in Greenland, from April through June, 2016.  She features guest accommodations for 26 passengers – perfect for private groups and large families.

GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS

Glaciers and icebergs make Greenland a unique destination. The alpine ranges south of the Arctic Circle in western Greenland are known for coastal heli-skiing on peaks up to 6500 feet (2,000 meters) and skiers can glide almost to the edge where the glaciers meet the sea.

Expedition yacht LEGEND profile

As Jana Sheeder explains, the adventure goes far beyond the slopes.

“Motor yacht LEGEND has been specifically outfitted with a wide array of watersports equipment and toys for exploration.  The yacht carries a small submarine for exploring under the ice pack, as well as kayaks, and snowmobiles.  If you’re into adventure and exploration, this yacht has tremendous appeal.” 

Onboard amenities include a cinema room, Balinese-style spa, gymnasium, and on-deck Jacuzzi large enough for 16 people.

Rates begin at €75900 per day with a 5 day minimum reservation required.

 

SOLAR ECLIPSE YACHT CHARTER SOUTHEAST ASIA

If skiing and polar exploration is not your thing, an exotic warm-weather escape might be more appealing, especially when you throw in one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles.

The world’s largest wooden sailing yacht is offering a rare opportunity to witness a celestial event in an environmentally vibrant, and culturally rich corner of our world.

Sail yacht LAMIMA is offering a 10-day adventure cruising the waters of Raja Ampat, Indonesia where on March 9, 2016 at 8:58am all onboard will witness a full solar eclipse.

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Scientists have said one of the optimal viewing points on the earth to see the full effect of the eclipse is in the area of Raja Ampat,” says Sheeder.  “We often encourage our clients to plan their private yacht charter vacations around the full moon, but experiencing a solar eclipse from an ocean vantage point is truly unique.”

ALL ABOUT INDONESIA

Indonesia offers diverse wildlife and world’s best snorkeling and diving sites. Sailing yacht LAMIMA has an extensive watersports inventory including  kayaks, paddleboard, and a full inventory of SCUBA gear for both Padi and Nitrox certified divers.  The crew includes a spa therapist and a local tour guide.

The ALL-INCLUSIVE 10-night charter rate for the solar eclipse excursion is $200,000 for up to 14 guests.  Can’t make it for the big celestial event?  The yacht’s regular weekly rate is $140,000.  It can be pro-rated for trips as short as 5 days.

Sheeder hopes to organize more unique yachting excursions throughout 2016.

“We deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to our clients.  We understand our clients want to immerse themselves and participate in unique cultural events.  Skiing in Greenland and witnessing a solar eclipse in Indonesia are perfect opportunities to experience an epic eco-friendly adventure.  What a great way to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit!”

28 Passenger Superyacht To Make St. Martin Yacht Charter Debut This Winter

Posted on

The 82.50 meter motor yacht O’MEGA, one of the very few private luxury yacht charter vessels in the world with the capacity for over 12  guests, is heading to the Caribbean for the very first time this winter.

Re-launched in 2004 after a complete remodel from a near-bare hull, super yacht O’MEGA underwent a major refit in 2009, and has had continuous upgrades every year since.  With an excellent crew-to-guest ratio, there are 30 crewmembers onboard to attend to 28 guests in 14 guest staterooms.

O'Mega superyacht underway

While in the Caribbean from early December, 2016 through April 2017, her weekly charter rate is  €525,000 + running expenses.  There is a two week minimum fee for charters during Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The only other +12 passenger superyacht considering relocation to the Caribbean for the winter is the 36 passenger motor yacht CHRISTINA O, as her owner has expressed interest in the emerging Cuba yacht charter marketplace (now that travel restrictions between the governments of the United States and Cuba have been eased).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christina O Motoryacht underway

With so few large-capacity yachts in the Caribbean this winter, we expect strong demand for both of these vessels in the area of St. Martin, particularly for St Barts yacht charter clients who invade the small island to celebrate the New Year.

1-800 Yacht Charters has dozens of luxury yachts available in the Caribbean this winter.  Let us Deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to you and your family and friends this winter.  For more information on yacht charter vessels and destinations, go to https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ now.

3 Hidden Yacht Charter Costs to Avoid

Posted on

IT IS SAID

For the nouveau riche, the idea of taking a private yacht charter vacation is both casual and routine: “Honey, should we go to the chalet in the Alps this weekend, or spend a few days boating around St Barts?”

For the rest of us working-class types, a boating holiday is something we plan far in advance.  Specifically squirreling away our pennies to pay for this special experience. Regardless of crewed yacht in the islands of the Caribbean or a do-it-yourself Florida Keys bareboat charter.

 

AFFORDABILITY AND VALUE MATTER

When affordability and value matter, it’s important to lock in a great charter price and not get blindsided by unexpected cash outlays.

 

3 PITFALLS TO AVOID

Here are three pitfalls that can put a crimp on your charter budget – along with some helpful advice from Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  Avoid or mitigate these expenses, and it will be smooth sailing.

 

COMMUNICATION FEES

The idea of an “all-inclusive” charter rate is a bit of a misnomer.  Many Caribbean-based charter yachts offer all–inclusive rates, but carefully read the small print on your charter agreement.  One item that is rarely included is the cost associated with using the yacht’s onboard communications system.  This includes cellular phones and internet connectivity.

man on wooden boat talking on cellphone

Unlike back home, cellular and internet service is very expensive in the Caribbean – often $1 or more per minute.  With the whole family logging on to check emails, staying in touch with the office, friends, and family adds up quickly – you can easily incur communication fees of $500 or more in a week’s time.

 

 

 

Jana’s Tip“Limit everyone’s online time to a few minutes a day. Better yet, turn off the cellphones, laptops, and get ‘un-connected.’  The whole point of a yachting vacation is to spend quality time with one another and to become immersed in the local culture and nature. Take a break from technology and enjoy your vacation!” 

 

SPECIAL ALCOHOL REQUESTS

Many all-inclusive yachts offer a “ship’s bar” in the cost of the charter.  This means the yacht will provide beer, house-quality wine, and some hard alcohol.  But beware – if you request certain top-shelf brands or vintage wines and champagnes, you could be in for a rude awakening when your skipper hands you an invoice for, “special requests” at the conclusion of your charter.  While some islands offer duty-free alcohol, this is not for local consumption, and premium brands in the islands are often 3 to 4 times as expensive as the same brands back home.

Jana’s Tip“Unless you absolutely must have your hand-brewed artisan ale, or a special single malt whiskey from some remote bog in Scotland, enjoy the house brands for a few days – especially the local island concoctions like Rum Runners and Pina Coladas.”

 

 

 

 

DELIVERY FEES

One of the great joys of a Virgin Islands yacht charter vacation is the flexibility – you can come and go as you please, when you please – all at your own pace.  Sometimes, charterers decide to conclude their charter in a different place than where they started.  Your trip might commence in St. Thomas, USVI, for example, but you’ve looked at a map and feel an adventurous cruise concluding in St. Martin sounds like fun.  It is YOUR yacht for the charter – everything’s up to you!

Most yacht owners and crews are more than happy to accommodate your wishes for everything – after all, this is your fully-customized vacation.  However, there could be a hefty cost to end in a port other than where you began your odyssey, and if you’re not careful, you could be left footing a “delivery” bill.

 

REPOSITIONING CONTINUED

The technical term is “re-positioning” – the cost of fuel and crew salary to return the yacht, after the charter has concluded, back to its home port.  Depending upon how many days it takes the crew to return the yacht to its homeport, you could be looking at a fee as low as $500 to as high as $1000 for a sailboat, and double that for a motoryacht.

Jana’s Tip“ask your charter broker before signing your charter agreement if there will be any delivery fees if you end in a port other than where you began your trip.  If there is a fee, ask your broker to approach the yacht owner and see if the fee can be reduced, or even waived.  Oftentimes, owners will absorb the cost of re-positioning, in order to secure your business.”

 

In conclusion, avoiding these budget-blowing pitfalls can save hundreds of dollars.  This keeps your trip as it should be.  It is a memorable experience to cherish for a lifetime.

3 to Watch: Luxury Yacht Charter Maven Shares Hottest Yacht Construction Trends for 2017 & Beyond

Posted on

WHAT TO WATCH IN YACHT CHARTER INDUSTRY

With her repeat clients pushing for the newest yachts with unique amenities, Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, understands the need to keep her finger on the pulse of the latest yachting design trends.

 

JANA SHEEDER, PRESIDENT, 1-800 YACHT CHARTERS ANALYSIS

Sheeder shares with us three over-the-top design trends she has noticed on upcoming new builds and recently-launched superyachts.

 

BALCONIES

 

OKTO superyacht balcony terrace

 

Balconies are features of upscale villas and resort suites.  The use of balconies (or “terraces”) is the ideal way to integrate interior  and exterior areas.  This amenity has now caught a foothold in superyacht design.  Builders are adding balconies adjacent to interior dining rooms, beach clubs, and most impressively, off of master cabins. 66m ISA motor yacht OKTO, for example, incorporates a private balcony in her full beam master suite.  The hydraulic balcony is  controlled by the guests. Specifically, simply push a button. This is a distinct advantage over earlier generation balconies on older yachts.  They require the assistance of the crew to open and close. The balcony comes with an air curtain to keep the interior spaces cool, while having the balcony open to the ocean.

 

POOLS

OKTO aerial running shot showing pool and decks

No, not Jacuzzi-style spa tubs – they are still an important superyacht amenity as well.  We’re talking about cool, fresh water pools, large enough to frolic with the kids on a warm summer day (or swim in place with the aid of current-generating waterjets).

When you’re anchored in a cove near Ibiza on a hot July afternoon, a dip in cool freshwater is a pleasant alternative to the salty, warm ocean.  Great examples of Balearic island yacht charter vessels with pools are 67.5m motor yacht ICON, and 108m Pride Mega Yachts 2018 motor yacht TOMORROW.

 

 

WELLNESS AREAS

 

Wellness massage room on yacht SOLANDGE

The interest in wellness yacht charter vacations continues to grow, with more and more clients requesting yachts that offer amenities for mind, body, and soul.  Saunas, steam rooms, gymnasiums, quiet yoga areas, as well as onboard nutritionists, beauticians, and massage therapists are a big draw.  Sheeder believes yachts that cater to mindfulness and overall wellness will be in great demand in 2017 and beyond.  Examples are the 85m Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE and  Tankoa yacht SUERTE (69m).

 

In conclusion, it is time to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.  Let 1-800 Yacht Charters deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to you, your family and friends. Click https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ now.

5 Cool Activities To Push Your Luxury Yacht Charter Over the Top

Posted on

WHAT TO DO ON YACHT CHARTER?

Looking to throw a little wrinkle into the typical yachting holiday in the Western Mediterranean?  Our charter department put their heads together and came up with 5 cool things to do to make your next yachting holiday a truly unique experience.

 

SAMPLE Lobster at Le Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa – Corsica

The French island of Corsica is often overlooked by charterers who spend most of their time exploring nearby Sardinia.  Corsica is downright beautiful, with a colorful history and unique culture and atmosphere. You’ll find an eclectic mix of old world charm infused with modern French style.

Corsica - Le Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa beach at Calla Marcella

 

For a truly gourmet French food experience, visit Le Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa. The elegant décor, stunning ocean views and private jetty make this a fantastic destination for a late afternoon lunch.  The seasonal creations of chef Pascal Cayeux, rival the finest fare in mainland France. Pascla creates gourmet twists on traditional fare, with vegetables and herbs from the kitchen’s own garden.

 

RELAX on the Beach at Cala Marcella – Menorca

The interest in a Balearic Island yacht charter experience continues to grow each summer, as more yachts secure the required Spanish charter licenses to explore Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca.  While the nightclubs of Ibiza have their own appeal, the idea of a pristine beach sounds pretty food as well.

Balearic islands Menorca beach

 

Take for example the beach at Cala Marcella.  You’ll need your yacht’s tender to get there as this beach is only accessible by boat (lucky you).  On most weekdays, you can almost be sure to find a quiet spot on the white sands of Cala Marcella  [Tip: avoid the weekend, as crowds of local boaters invade this idyllic cove].  If you feel adventurous, bring a pair of walking shoes ashore, as there is a walking route that you can hike to the neighboring beach of Macaraletta.  Here, you can walk to the top of the cliff and experience some of the best ocean views in all of the Balearic islands.

 

EXPLORE the Blue Marino Underwater Caves – Sardinia

At the base of the 110 meter high cliffs of Cappo Caccia, along the northwest corner of Sardinia, lies the entrance to the Grotto de Neptuno – a stalactite-filled cavern and saltwater lake.  Land-based visitors can enter by climbing down 654 steps from the top of the cliff to explore the underground grotto. You on the other hand, can simply have your captain nose your yacht into the entrance of the caves!

Blue Marino Underwater Caves at Cappo Caccia - Grotto de Neptuno Sardinia

 

 

 

 

For snorkelers and divers, the adventure gets deeper at the nearby Nereo Cave, considered the biggest marine cave in the Western Mediterranean.  With 10 entrances, arches and tunnels, novices can snorkel in waist high water while experienced/certified divers can dive down to depths of 35 meters.

 

REJUVENATE your Spirit at the Luminaria – Pisa

You’ve missed this event for this year, but it’s never too early to plan your 2017 summer charter.  Every June 16, on the eve of the feast day of Saint Ranieri, the city of Pisa is aglow with 70,000 “lumini” (candles in glass containers). The reflection along the Arno river is mesmerizing.  It’s a peaceful, tranquil setting and the warmth of the Pisa residents will touch your heart.  If this doesn’t remind you how the superyacht experience allows you to embrace diverse cultures, nothing will!

 

QUENCH your Thirst and Go Wine Tasting with Monks – Cannes

Just off the coast of Cannes, in the South of France, lies the small island of Saint Honorat. Here, visitors will find a very unusual vineyard.  It has 8 hectares of vines cared for entirely by the monks of the Abbey of Lerins.  The monks tend to every aspect of winemaking.  For instance, from planting the vineyard, to harvesting the grapes.  Additionally, to making and bottling the wine.

Wine tasting with the Monks of Saint Honorat and the Abbey of Lerins in Cannes France

 

UNIQUE VINTAGES

Truly unique vintages found nowhere else, we recommend the Saint Cyprien Viognier with a seasonal Mediterranean meal served by the monks in their own restaurant.  After dinner, you can finish the day with a tasting of the fruit liqueurs as you enjoy the company of the monks and their staff, in this peaceful Monastic enclave.

==============================

In conclusion, 1-800 Yacht Charters offers summer itineraries from the Côte d’Azur to the ancient islands of Greece. For a sampling of our luxury yachts, visit our interactive website at 1800yachtcharters.com.
