3 LUXURY YACHTS TO CHARTER AND BUY

Posted on

HOW MUCH DOES SHE COST? 

Surprisingly, this question often comes up when our clients return from a memorable luxury yacht charter vacation.

Charter clients seem mesmerized by The Superyacht Experience. We’re thrilled!  : )   Indeed, it’s hard to imagine any other vacation on par with yachting.  It’s an experience where the superyacht serves as a platform for an eco-friendly adventure. Most of all, it’s a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

 

A BRIDGE TOO FAR?

But is it a “bridge too far” to transition from luxury yacht charter guest to superyacht owner?  Actually, it’s fairly common for charterers to become superyacht owners.

Some people purchase a specific automobile make and model after renting one for a long trip.  They like how the car looks and handles.  Of course, they celebrate how the vehicle whisked them to a new destination, in style and comfort.

Similarly, charterers become enthralled with the creature comforts of a yacht.  Certainly, the idea of arriving in an exotic destination on a floating villa is pretty darn appealing.

From there, the intrigue and hunger continue to grow.  After all, why limit your family’s enjoyment of cruising to just one or two weeks a year?

The yachting lifestyle is addicting!

THREE SUPERYACHTS FOR SALE AND CHARTER

Let’s take a look at three, popular superyacht charter vessels currently available for hire, and also available for purchase.

 

QUANTUM OF WHA???

We never quite understood the meaning of Quantum of Solace as the title of the James Bond film.  It doesn’t matter – naming superyachts in homage to Bond films is very popular.  There are many James Bond boats as we like to call them. For instance, Octopussy, Skyfall, Casino Royale, and others.

There is even a superyacht named after the 2008 Bond film, Motoryacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE.  The 72.6m superyacht was built in 2012 and refit in 2017.  Here’s our description of the yacht on our charter website.

“Award-winning Proteksan Turquoise motor yacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE is noteworthy for a few reasons. Specifically, her spectacular lines and enormous volume.  Charterers enjoy many entertainment and relaxation areas.  For instance, her salons, bars, decks, and terraces.  She is a Turkish build.  The yacht features both interior and exterior design by H2 Yacht Design.  QUANTUM OF SOLACE accommodates up to 12 guests in seven beautiful cabins.”

Her weekly charter rate is €560,000.

Her listed purchase price is $58,000,000.

 

  

A MASTER NUMBER

Finally, a yacht with a name we can understand!  Well…not really.  We cheated and looked up the meaning.  In numerology, the number 11 is considered a master number, and it signifies enlightenment.  If you pair the number with itself, 11.11, it represents a message from the universe to become aware.

Cosmically, we’ve got a ways to go. However, even we’re aware that Benetti yacht 11.11 is stunning.  Here’s a little history from our website on how this yacht came to be.

Benetti yacht 11.11 is a winner from the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.  She is only the second plumb-bowed boat built by the fabled Italian yard.  This beautiful lady was originally commissioned to look like a Russian Czar’s palace.  Her first owner walked away when the yacht was just 40% complete.  A new owner stepped in to transform the yacht into an award-winning monochromatic masterpiece.  What a fortunate owner!  The current trend is to build yachts with hard, minimalistic edges.  This yacht’s main living areas onboard yacht 11.11 offer suppleness and comfort.”

 

Here is a link to our video by company President, Jana Sheeder, for superyacht 11-11.  Enjoy!

The weekly charter rate is €650,000.

The listed purchase price is €59,500,000.

 

 

NINTH ROCK FROM THE SUN

Back in grade school, we were taught Pluto is the ninth planet in the solar system. Now, it’s referred to as a dwarf planet.  It’s ok, Pluto – we‘ll still call you the ninth planet!

Avoiding the naming controversy is the 73.2-meter superyacht PLANET NINE.  Forget outer space – there’s plenty to explore on earth.  This yacht is built for ocean adventure.  Our website notes describe this superyacht as a

“…Long-range high-quality luxury explorer yacht with serious go anywhere sea keeping characteristics, heavy build specification and suitable for sailing in ice conditions in accordance with its class notation. Dynamic positioning and suitability for global cruising. Commercially approved helideck suitable for an Augusta Grande dimensionally or larger helicopter in weight, up to 8 tons, with enclosed below-deck hangar.”

The weekly charter rate is €650,000.

The listed purchase price is €85,000,000.

Large Family Enjoys Mediterranean Yacht Charter On 228 foot Luxury Yacht

Posted on

LARGE FAMILY YACHT REVIEW

Yet another amazing review from a happy clients after enjoying The Superyacht Experience(tm). Specifically, on a large family yacht favorite.

Profile of yacht SHERAKHAN with blue hull and white superstructure

 

“We want to thank you and your amazing Crew for a trip of a lifetime. Our 8 days aboard motor yacht SHERAKHAN will forever be remembered and revered as beyond exceptional. 

We decided to charter SHERAKHAN because of the ship’s ability to sleep more than twenty guests and the crew was to be amazing. I would like to confirm that the ship is beyond beautiful and the crew is beyond anything I have ever experienced.  Chefs Mark and Michael were incredible, we never wanted to eat a meal off the boat the food was so delicious! Every morning we looked forward to seeing the incredible fruit and vegetable sculptures at the buffet table. We played water sports until we couldn’t stand, had amazing massages, and played in the glass-bottom Jacuzzi. We sang Karaoke until we couldn’t sing and danced the night away under the moon and the stars.

I want to say a very heartfelt thank you to each and every member of the crew – some I only saw once or twice – others all day every day. Thank you all so much for your hard work and all of the love you put into making sure we had a trip of a lifetime.

-John B”

EDITOR’S NOTE

Motoryacht SHERAKHAN has an amazing sundeck and hot tub.  She first caught attention on our blog in November 2011.  We then rated the top 5 on-deck tubs on charter vessels.

THE YACHT

The 228 foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN is extremely popular with large extended families.  Further, she is one of a select few vessels with the capacity to accommodate 20 to 26 guests.

This spacious yacht is in the shipyard.  She finishes her winter maintenance work before relocating to the islands. In specific, before the start of the Caribbean yacht charter season.  She has many improvements. For instance, all new deck furniture and new carpets throughout. Watertoys are all either being replaced or serviced to as-new condition. The Bimini cover above the on-deck hot tub is adapted to give more shade options.  In addition, large modern shade parasols exist on the sun deck.

YACHT VIDEO

Gorgeous Sherakhan has a lovely video.  Enjoy!

 

AVAILABILITY

Yacht SHERAKHAN is available from mid-November in the Caribbean.  For example, including Thanksgiving and the Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year holidays.

Motoryacht PARTY GIRL 146 Ready for Caribbean Yacht Charter Action

Posted on

PARTY GIRL 146 END OF SEASON?

The end of the Caribbean yacht charter season arrives.  Most megayacht vessels like Christensen Motor yacht PARTY GIRL 146 leave the confines of the island life behind.  They subsequently begin the three-week migration “across the pond” (the Atlantic ocean). Once there, they prepare for the Mediterranean charter season.  Super yacht PARTYGIRL 146, however, is not like other luxury yacht charter vessels.

For instance, a 37′ Intrepid tender and two 18 foot tenders.  In addition, a three-person waverunner and towable toys. For instance, a Banana and a kneeboard. For onshore activity, the yacht offers an assortment of beach games.  Additionally, volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, kites, and a football.

YACHT CHARTER REVIEWS

 

Here’s the feedback of a recent charter guest:

 

“ The charter was so much better than we ever hoped, the crew was so kind, they indulged the children with playing, fishing and all of the adults got into the toys and adventure as well, all of the crew participated and made it so fun, they were willing to do anything, the chef was fabulous, my wife who has Celiac and my daughter -in-law who is gluten intolerant were so spoiled and could not have been happier.

 

THE YACHT CHARTER REVIEW CONTINUES 

…the theme nights were amazing and we loved that Pirate Captain Mike got dressed up and we renewed our vows and it made our anniversary celebration and holiday one will never forget, Captain Mike was very detailed with the APA accounting and explanation and this built a lot of confidence for me, he is a stand up classy guy, we would love to do this again and cannot thank the crew enough, it was hard to say goodbye.”
