DEEP Discount Offered By Motor Yacht Seven Sins for Heesen Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

What could be better than experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation in the warm waters of the Caribbean?  That’s easy:  experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation AND saving $50,000 to boot!

THE YACHT CHARTER DEAL

The charter manager for motor yacht SEVEN SINS just sent us an email inviting our clients to take advantage of a fantastic offer — a 40% price reduction on charters between January 5 and 28, 2017.

The published weekly rate for the 43.80m (143′ 8″) yacht is $125,000.  Shaving 40% from this price drops her weekly rate to $75,000 – a whopping savings of $50 LARGE!

Known for their unique speed among large superyachts, and their sleek exterior lines and modern interiors,  Heesen yacht charter vessels like motor yacht OCTOPUSSY (once the world’s fastest yacht), and Formula 1-inspired  superyacht AURELIA are among the most popular charter yachts for clients who appreciate the advantage of a swift vessel.  The advantage of a fast yacht means that charterers can enjoy more anchorages in a shorter amount of time, as compared to slower yachts.  Thus, a vessel like yacht SEVEN SINS can easily incorporate a charter from St. Martin and St Barts in the leeward islands of the Caribbean, with an outing to the Virgin Islands far to the north – all within a week’s time.

 

KEY YACHT FEATURES

SEVEN SINS offers accommodations for 10 guests in 5 staterooms.  Her manager put together a list of the yacht’s KEY FEATURES:

  • Extended by 2.5m – more deck space – refurbished owner’s cabin
  • Finalist at World Superyacht Awards in Refit category
  • Huge selection of water toys;  including floating trampoline and two SeaBobs
  • Upper deck dining for 12, and a table for 10 on the sun deck

 

VESSEL BOOKINGS

This stunning Heesen yacht charter vessel just completed a holiday charter in St Maarten on January 2nd.  Her calendar for the remainder of January is currently wide open.

BUILDER:  Heesen

LENGTH (LOA): 43.80m (143′ 8″)

YACHT CHARTER TESTIMONIAL

Before arriving in the Caribbean in December, the yacht spent the summer in French Polynesia.  Here’s a copy of a testimonial written by a client to the owner of yacht SEVEN SINS at the conclusion of his Heesen yacht charter superyacht experience in the Pacific:

 

“Dear (Owner’s name),

You don’t know me but, although we have never met, I think I know more than a little about you.

I just finished a charter of the M/Y Seven Sins in French Polynesia. And based on everything I saw and experienced on your boat and with your crew tells me that you not only have fine taste, but you have the same eye for quality and pay the same attention to detail that I try to do in my own projects.

I develop, own and operate retail and mixed use real estate projects in the Dallas, Texas area. And though it drives many around me crazy, I cant (sic) rest unless every element of my project is perfect…from the design, to the construction, to the finishes and materials, to the retail and restaurant tenants [and their own design and finishes!], and beyond.

On the Seven Sins, I saw that same unwillingness to accept ‘good enough’ or live with  things that work ‘pretty well.’  I’ll be honest…I looked hard to find flaws, problems or issues….not so that I could complain, but rather because I just can’t help myself! It’s who I am and it’s what I do! And I can tell from what I saw…it is who you are too!

I am pleased to report to you that every aspect of your vessel and your crew were, in a word, impeccable. Beyond all of my very high expectations in every way.

This email is simply to say ‘thank you’ for sharing your vessel and its able and charming crew with us. (and) I hope I’ll get the chance to spend some more time on her perhaps again in the South Pacific or perhaps in the Caribbean.

Thanks again,

(Client’s name)”

 

WOW!  What a fantastic testimonial from a client with discriminating tastes.

YACHT CHARTER OPPORTUNITY

Now, it’s your turn!  We often have yacht owners extend gracious discounts of 5% to 10%. On occasion we see deals of 15%.  Rarely do we have the opportunity to offer a superyacht, especially a Heesen yacht charter vessel, at a 40% discount.

January is a great time to explore the Caribbean – most of the tourists who came for year-end vacations have returned home.  Take advantage of quiet beaches, and anchorages where you’ll have room to enjoy the yacht’s watertoys.  Head ashore and meet the island people – friendly natives eager to share their culture and island lifestyle with you.

At full price, SEVEN SINS provides a great superyacht experience…
At 40% off, it’s a deal of a lifetime!

1-800 Yacht Charters’ 24 hour hotline, 305-720-7245.

Motor Yacht TAIL LIGHTS & Crew Impress Multi-Repeat Luxury Yacht Charter Family

Posted on

After some shipyard time in Georgia, the popular and highly successful charter yacht TAIL LIGHTS headed to the Bahamas in charter ready and Bristol condition.  The 116ft Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS looked amazing and had lots of new toys and goods onboard to start her first charter in Nassau on November 21st.

A recent charter guest took the time to share her thoughts about her family’s superyacht experience onboard Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS.  What lends credence to her comments is the fact she has chartered three times prior.  In her own words,

 

“We just got off the boat this morning. This was my fourth trip on a (luxury yacht) charter vessel and found it to be at least equal to but in many ways better than the previous trips I had taken. Captain Steve Kemp was awesome. He was extremely organized and looked after every detail of the trip. When we needed to adjust he was quick to respond and very accommodating. The crew was fantastic and also very accommodating. The girls were all Johnny-on-the-spot with food, drinks, and any other need we had. The staterooms were always looked after and kept pristine during our trip. Very pleasant personalities and fun to talk to. Jeff made sure the boat and tender were operating perfectly and was also very accommodating when we wanted to tour the engine room. The boat itself was appointed very nicely and it was obvious that she had been upgraded recently. It looked brand new. I would highly recommend (yacht) Tail Lights and its crew, particularly Steve the captain. I certainly would look into chartering her again.”

Your Saint Lucia Yacht Charter – Packing Tips

Posted on

"My family is planning a Caribbean yacht charter vacation on a crewed sailboat. We're going to start in St. Lucia and are curious how we should pack, based on the weather.  Thanks,   Terry K." 


Caribbean yacht charter Grenadines St. Lucia Barbados sailboat vacation tropical sailing tripHi Terry,

Thank you for your question.

While most customers focus on St Thomas yacht rentals in the Virgin Islands, we are excited to hear that you and your family are headed further south, to enjoy a Windward Islands yacht charter.  The scenery is quite different from that in the Virgin Islands — there are tall mountains, waterfalls, and rainforests – it's truly a subtropical wonderland!

We checked with the crew of sail yacht CERULEAN, a crewed catamaran yacht charter vessel that spends the winter in the Windward Islands (also known as The Grenadines).   Here are their suggestions for you: 

  • Lightweight clothing is suitable as the climate is tropical. Perhaps a pullover for the evening.
  • When venturing ashore for the evening, smart casual is widely acceptable in the Grenadines.
  • Bring along your favorite hat. Polarized sunglasses are a must! 
  • Water tolerant shoes or flip flops that are comfortable, easily worn, and easily removed are best.
  • A lightweight UV skin guard for snorkeling is of comfort to yourself.
No need to pack toiletries since items such as shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream and sunblock.  Those items are readily available on almost every charter vessel in the Caribbean.
 
Have a great trip, and don't forget to take lots of pictures!

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