282 Foot Spielberg Yacht SEVEN SEAS For Sale

Posted on

Call it, “Life imitating art.”  When under siege by a great white shark in the 1975 film, JAWS, actor Roy Scheider’s character exclaimed, ‘We’re gonna need a bigger boat.’

It seems the film’s director Steven Spielberg has taken that sentiment to heart, as his 282 foot superyacht is up for sale, and it is scheduled to be replaced with an even larger vessel.

The Spielberg yacht SEVEN SEAS, built in 2010 by Dutch yard Oceanco, has lived up to its name. In 2013, the famous director, his wife Kate Capshaw, and their seven children took the yacht on a 30,000-mile round-the-world cruise.

Over the years, many famous Hollywood celebrities have been guests onboard the yacht, including Gwyneth Paltrow, and Leonardo DiCaprio.  According to the UK’s Daily News, a friend of the director said, Steven didn’t realize how much he’d enjoy cruising the ocean. Now he’d like to spend more time exploring the seas, and bring a few friends along for the ride. So he’s upgrading to a bigger yacht.”

When not in use by Spielberg and his family, the Monaco yacht charter vessel is available for hire. This season’s charter rate in the Mediterranean is $1.2 million per week. “She has always been a favorite charter yacht,” says Jana Sheeder, President and yacht charter Maven of 1-800 Yacht Charters.

If you’re considering renting the yacht this summer, you might have to wait until September, as the legendary director and his family have spent a considerable portion of their summer vacation onboard, and were recently spotted taking in the sites of Portofino, Italy.  Even the family dog is along for the ride.

Lucky pooch!

3 Hidden Yacht Charter Costs to Avoid

Posted on

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 (be it a crewed yacht in the islands of the Caribbean, or a do-it-yourself Florida Keys bareboat charter) is something we plan far in advance – including squirreling away our pennies to pay for this special experience.

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

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.

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.

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.

Avoiding these budget-blowing pitfalls can save hundreds of dollars and keep your trip as it should be – a memorable experience to cherish for a lifetime.

3 Simple Ways to Enjoy Greener Sail Boat Charters

Posted on

Green travel habits to reduce carbon footprint and live green

Much attention has been focused on the efforts of the superyacht industry to embrace sustainability and green building practices.  But what about the travelers – the people who rent, for example, a private yacht for a Virgin Islands yacht charter holiday?

How can they contribute to furthering the cause of green, eco-friendly vacations?

It’s not hard, and taking a “green approach” to vacations goes hand-in-hand with being a responsible traveler. With a little effort, charter passengers can help reduce the negative environmental impact on the places they visit.

Green travel begins with the understanding and respect for the cruising destination’s culture and an effort to bring benefit the local economy.

Here’s the best part – you do not have to pay more to go green!   Let’s look at three simple ways to travel greener on your next sailing vacation:

1.  Save Energy
a)  Re-use towels and linens during your charter.  The crews on most yachts constantly scramble to change and clean towels and linens throughout a week-long charter.  After all, they are dedicated to the highest level of customer service.  Simply tell your crew that you are willing to reuse your towels and bed linens more than once or twice during your stay.  It is estimated this simple act can save 5 percent on utilities!

Another simple way to travel greener is to b)  turn off the air conditioning and lights in your cabin when leaving the room.

2.  Reduce Carbon Output
Consider planning a trip that will reduce carbon emissions. Sometimes it is as simple as considering the distance from the arrival airport to your awaiting yacht.  Ask your crew if there is a marina or sandy beach close to the airport.  If there is, you can save the cost of a taxi and the related carbon emissions of the vehicle.

For example, many people arriving for a charter in Tortola, BVI will first fly into St. Thomas, USVI, take a 30 minute taxi to the ferry docks, ride a ferry to Tortola, and take another taxi to a marina – where their yacht and crew await.  As a green alternative, you can fly to Beef Island airport in Tortola, adjacent to a large, sandy beach. Your crew can take a dinghy up to the beach to pick you up, and you can literally walk over from the airport!

3.  Support the Local Economy
You can easily travel greener by learning about the culture, food, and environment of the places you visit. Prior to your charter, ask your crew to cook using native cuisine versus foods and goods that need to be shipped in.  When going ashore to shop and sightsee, buy souvenirs and handmade crafts that benefit the local community over imported goods. Do not purchase souvenirs made from local endangered animals or plants.

To be green on your yacht charter, be sure to support the local economy

Remember, responsible travel habits will reduce the negative environmental impact on the places you visit long after you and your sailing companions have returned home.

3 Things to NEVER Do (and 1 to ALWAYS Do) During Thailand Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

Recently, we blogged about the Thai government’s efforts to lift the restrictions that kept superyacht charter vessels away from Thailand.  Now that the door has been opened for foreign-flagged yachts (and American charterers and tourists), let’s look at some cultural taboos that could save you from being branded an “Ugly American.”

Woman making shocked face - black and white

 

Keep in mind almost 95% of the Thai population is Buddhist. As in much of southeast Asia, there are cultural taboos that non-Buddhists would not know, some of which are considered religiously offensive.

 

Three things NOT to do on your yacht charter Thailand:

  • Avoid touching or passing any object over the top of anyone’s head, as a person’s head is viewed as the most sacred body part.  Related to this  – Do not touch anyone’s head.
  • Don’t point your foot at any person, and don’t use your foot to move anything, as the foot is viewed as the lowliest body part.  Remember to never put your feet up on a table or any furniture. [I thought my mother-in-law was Italian, but now I’m thinking she was Thai, as she always scolded her son for putting his feet on the coffee table while watching TV!!!]

Baby between two adult feet with traditional no symbols on the feet

  • Try never to point, especially with your index finger, as it is considered extremely rude. [Think of President Bill Clinton – he always used his thumb to point, never his index finger.  Funny, he doesn’t strike me as a Buddhist!]

 

Here’s one thing to ALWAYS do:

  • Always use your right hand to pass or receive an object.  [Sorry left-handed charterers.]

Right hand thumbs up

One of the great joys of a yachting vacation is the Superyacht Experience – the chance to embrace diversity, participate in unique cultural events, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.  By avoiding these taboos, think how much more enjoyable your Phuket yacht charter vacation will be.  You won’t offend the wonderful people of Thailand, and your mother won’t scold you for putting your feet up on the yacht’s furniture!

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

Posted on

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.

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

Long a design feature in 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 at the simple touch of a button (a distinct advantage over earlier generation balconies on older yachts that required 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).

 

It’s time to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. Let 1-800 Yacht Charters Deliver the Superyacht Experience to you, your family and friends.  Call 305-253-7245 or email info@1800yachtcharters.com.

5 Amazing Caribbean Yacht Charter Cocktails To Try Right Now

Posted on

 

“I’m looking forward to my first St. Martin yacht charter vacation, and my travel companions and I are having a Caribbean themed party to get super psyched about our trip.  Any suggestions for traditional island cocktails to put us in the proper frame of mind?”

Angel A., Miami

 

Now that’s the spirit, Angel!  What a fantastic idea to get pumped about your Caribbean escape.

We’re not too embarrassed to admit enjoying a libation or two (or three) during our own yachting excursions in the islands. Local specialties can be found throughout the Caribbean, but we’ve narrowed down the choices to our fav five (in no particular order).

As you sip these drinks, keep in mind you can heighten your experience by throwing on a pair of flip-flops, hiding behind a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, and swaying to a little “Havana Daydreamin” with Jimmy Buffet.

Smooth sailing, Angel…

Mojito – Cuba yacht charter

Some things are quintessential Cuban – hand-made cigars, guayabera linen shirts, and minty Mojitos. The history of Cuba’s signature drink dates back to the 16th century, when Sir Francis Drake and his comrades drank a mixture of crushed mint leaves, lime and unrefined rum. Locals say Hemingway drank them at Le Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, and James Bond enjoyed one in 2002’s Die Another Day.

Made with Pusser’s Rum, The Painkiller cocktail originated at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke island in the BVIs.  The drink was once made with a secret rum recipe by Daphne Henderson, the owner of the Soggy Dollar.  Charles Tobias, the founder of the Pusser’s rum distillery, persuaded Henderson to share her recipe. We’re glad she did, as Painkiller cocktails are now readily available throughout the Caribbean.

Ti Punch – Martinique yacht charter

More an aperitif than cocktail, this simple mix of white rum, cane sugar and lime is usually served straight and is popular in all of the French Caribbean islands – Martinique, Guadeloupe, and the French side of St. Martin. Easy to make, it’s usually  served “to taste” – drinkers are presented with a glass of rum, a lime, and some syrup to make it up as they wish.

 

 

 

We know what you’re thinking – we promised five killer cocktails but only named three.  You caught us!

Submit our contact form (here) requesting the other 2 great drinks, and we’ll send you the names AND the recipes to make all 5 of our favorite island-themed Caribbean yacht charter cocktails.  Look forward to hearing from you and sharing some cocktails!

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

Posted on

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, with 8 hectares of vines cared for entirely by the monks of the Abbey of Lerins.  The monks tend to every aspect of winemaking, from planting the vineyard, to harvesting the grapes, to making and bottling the wine.

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

 

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.

90M motoryacht NERO and other luxury yacht charter vessels lauded for green practices

Posted on

THE AWARD

The Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) has announced the 2017 winners of the “Going Green To Save The Blue” campaign, and the crew onboard superyacht NERO have been recognized in the “Designer Water” contest.  The contest recognizes the crews of private luxury yacht charter vessels for their “yacht-made” water, as an effort to reduce the use of disposable plastic water bottles on yachts.

three round glasses containing water infused with strawberries blueberries pomegranate orange cucumber

 

 

THE MESSAGE

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, and a CYBA member, explains the program – and the urgency of the underlying message

“The campaign is designed to encourage yacht owners and crews to reduce, and eventually forego, the use of plastic water bottles by both the crews and the onboard luxury yacht charter guests.  The goal is to raise awareness as to the massive volume of water bottles that are consumed during charters, and the impact disposable plastic has in our landfills and more importantly, our oceans.”

 

THE WINNERS

The “Designer Water” contest is held annually at the opening of the Caribbean yacht charter winter/spring season.  The season, which has just concluded for 2017, saw more than one dozen private yacht charter vessels and their crews showcase their “flavored” waters, all generated from onboard watermakers that convert seawater into clean, safe drinking water.

This year’s winners are:

  • 111 foot sailing yacht REE – for Hibiscus Martini Water
  • 183 foot sailing yacht ROSEHEARTY – for Moranga-infused Detoxifying Water
  • 265 foot mega yacht NERO – for Coriander and Passionfruit Water

 

THE PROGRAM

Now in its fifth year, the CYBA “Going Green To Save The Blue” campaign has a dual-fold strategy.  By encouraging yacht owners and crews to offer eco-friendly options, private yacht charter guests can participate in this sustainable initiative.  Hopefully, the guests return home with a clearer understanding of the impact of plastic pollution, as well as how they can incorporate simple changes in their daily lives that can make a difference in safeguarding our environment for future generations.

“The ‘Going Green’ campaign highlights the numerous opportunities and options available to our private yacht charter clients, yacht owners, and crews – from avoiding plastic water bottles, to using green cleaning products, reef-friendly sunscreens, and solar panels for energy,” says Sheeder. “We congratulate motor yacht NERO and her owner and crew and all of the other Caribbean yacht charter teams for their commitment to the long-term health of our oceans and the marine environment.”

A Bug’s Life – Potential Luxury Yacht Charter Building Material Inspired by Tiny Insect

Posted on

luxury yacht charter gadgets green yachting yacht technology aerogels water striders buoyancy oil spill cleanups green technology The builders of today’s luxury yacht charter vessels often turn to aluminum, Kevlar, and plastic resins to make lightweight and fuel-efficient boats.

That all may change – thanks to a bug…

Aerogels are among the lightest solid materials in existence. Created by replacing the liquid component of a gel with a gas, aerogels are extremely low in density, and hence, fairly buoyant. Now scientists have created a new aerogel, inspired by the feet of an insect – the tiny “water strider.”

The new aerogel is so buoyant, a yacht made from one pound (454 grams) of it could carry about 1,000 pounds (454 kg) of cargo.

Created by a team of professors and scientists at the Helsinki University of Technology, the new aerogel contains tiny fibers – nano-fibrils – derived from cellulose in plants. These fibers allow the aerogel to float by using the same physics principles evidenced by the water strider’s long, skinny feet. The water strider’s feet are covered in tiny hairs that trap air, and each air bubble helps distribute the insect’s weight across the water, keeping it from breaking the surface tension.

In addition to commercial boat-building aspects, the bug-inspired aerogel could find use in environmental pollution sensors, children’s water toys, and beach floats.   Even more promising is the potential application in environmental protection.  It seems the gel is able to absorb large amounts of oil – making it well-suited for oil spill cleanups.
