“Having the Best Time…” on Motor Yacht ‘H – [Video]

Posted on

 

When your clients are accustomed to +70 meter superyachts for their private luxury yacht charter vacations, you should probably think twice about recommending a 40 meter yacht for their next getaway…

Unless that 40 meter vessel is motor yacht ‘H with Captain Phil Frost at the helm.

About three weeks ago, good friends of ours called.  They were taking a short trip from their home in the states to visit their daughter who is spending a college semester in France.  During the visit, they planned to catch the “On The Run II: Beyonce & Jay-Z” concert in Paris, then spend a few days exploring.  They asked, “Since we’re not taking the whole family, is there a smaller, contemporary-designed yacht that you would recommend for a quick getaway in France?”  Without hesitation, we said, “Yes, the best available option is the 42 meter Benetti motoryacht ‘H.”

Built in 2015, motor yacht ‘H is a shining example of the Italian builder’s Fast 140 series, with exterior styling by Stefano Righini, and interiors by HJH Studios.  The yacht has it all – a massive sundeck, an impressive skylounge, and a fantastic, young, energetic crew led by can-do skipper, Australian Phil Frost.  Phil’s motto is, “Say yes, then figure out how to make it happen!”

With just hours to prepare, Phil and his team provisioned and prepared for our clients’ arrival in Bonifacio.  Less than 2 hours after getting onboard, our clients sent us two, short, but telling texts.  First, the husband wrote, “Having the best time.”  Then, his wife wrote, “Oh man, this crew is awesome!”

Once back home, the family called us to say the yacht was beautiful and surprisingly comfortable for a 40 meter yacht, and the crew made everyone feel as if they were onboard a 70 meter vessel.

They were so impressed, plans are already underway for a repeat trip in September…

If you’re considering a private yacht charter vacation in the Med in August or September (or the Caribbean this winter), it’s hard to overstate the value, luxury, and comfort you’ll find with Captain Phil Frost, onboard Benetti motor yacht ‘H…

[Side note – Beyonce and Jay-Z decided to do a little boating after the concert as well.  They loaded the family onboard motor yacht KISMET, before returning to the next leg of their world tour…]

3 Yacht Charter Must See Destinations | Luxury yacht charter

Posted on

Our friends at Trip Advisor recently sent us an email with some stunning images of 20 awe-inspiring places you must see.  The locations were selected by their members.

Several of the spots were accessible by yacht or could easily be accessed by land during a luxury yacht charter vacation.

From the locations submitted by the members, we’ve selected our favorite three for you to see:

1.  PULPIT ROCK – Ryfylke, Norway.
The Pulpit Rock (“Preikestolen” in Norwegian) soars 604 meters over the Lysefjord. This flat mountain plateau, was most likely carved and formed from melting ice over 10,000 years ago.

Fjord yacht charters in the summertime remain a popular choice, especially among European customers from neighboring Soviet countries. 
The Schooner sail yacht MONTIGNE  often offers Norway yacht charter vacations in the summertime. Built by Aegean Yachts, the 2009 super yacht MONTIGNE is a 57 meter (187 foot) three-masted staysail schooner with accommodations for 12 guests.

Her yacht charter rates start at $140,000 per week, plus expenses.

2.  PLITVICE LAKES – Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia.
Founded in 1949, Plitvice is the largest national park in Croatia, drawing more than 1,200,000 visitors annually.  Situated in the mountainous area of central Croatia, the national park connects the Croatian inland with the Adriatic coastal region – a highly popular yachting destination.
The interest in Croatia yacht charters continues to grow each summer, as clients look for alternatives to the crowded anchorages and overpriced marinas in France and Italy.Aerial photograph of mountains, green trees, turquoise water, and waterfalls flowing from the lakes
Motor yacht AIR, Benetti yacht charter vessel MINE GAMES, and James Bond inspired boat, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, have all spent time recently cruising the calm waters of the Adriatic yacht charter coastline.
3.  SANTORINI – Cyclades, Greece.
If you’ve ever seen a photograph of blinding-white buildings with blue roofs, juxtaposed against a backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, chances are you saw a photo of Santorini.  The views of the sea from the terraces of the ancient towns along the cliffs are mesmerizing.
Arguably the most famous island in Greece, Santorini is easily reachable by yacht – just 120 miles southeast from Greece’s mainland.

33 Meter Crewed Catamaran Charter Vessel Launched By Curvelle Yachts

Posted on

In February we added the brand new 33 meter catamaran yacht QUARANTA to our website, in anticipation of her launch and christening.

We are proud to report motor yacht QUARANTA, the largest carbon hybrid composite power catamaran in the world, was successfully launched in February.

At 3.30am, the Turkish-built superyacht was pulled from her Tuzla shipyard shed on to the public road by a huge trailer. From there, she was towed 3 kilometers to the RMK shipyard for launching.

The following day, on Sunday morning at 10:45am, the yacht was officially christened and launched.

The vessel features a flexible layout. Six double cabins offer room for 12 guests, and be converted into three VIP suites, six twins, doubles, or any combination thereof. All guest cabins are located on the main deck and fitted with large windows.

Interior and exterior styling was provided by UK’s Lila Lou Studios, with Incat Crowther serving as the naval architects.

With four decks and a nine (9) meter beam, the catamaran provides nearly 50 per cent more space than a comparable 30 meter monohull.

She is available this summer for Eastern Mediterranean yacht charter vacations at a rate of €125,000 per week, plus all expenses.
A similar vessel, the Sunreef 70 power catamaran DAMRAK II is also available for hire in the Mediterranean in the summer months.=======================

4 Reasons to Charter a Sailing Yacht (and NOT a Motor Yacht)

Posted on

Do you prefer a sail boat charter or a motor yacht charter?

"Do you prefer a sailboat or a motoryacht?"
 
That is typically the first question a charter broker asks a prospective new customer when approached with an inquiry for a mega yacht charter vacation.
 
The answer is often a request for a motor yacht.   Yachting aficionados routinely inquire by motoryacht brand, asking specifically, for example, for a Benetti yacht charter or Trinity yacht charter vessel.

The pendulum, however, seems to be swinging as more clients express interest in luxury sailing charter holidays.

"I believe we are witnessing a shift in our sense of priorities when it comes to the world around us," says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway, an international yacht rental agency.  "The focus on sustainable lifestyles goes beyond how we live at home.  Many travelers feel compelled to seek out an eco-friendly vacation, and sailboats are the perfect alternative to fossil-fuel powered motoryachts."

But what about luxury and comfort? For years, sailboats were considered small and cramped, with far fewer amenities than their power-driven counterparts.  "That’s all in the past," says Sheeder.  "Advances in technology have come a long way.  Naval architects have found ways to add upscale amenities to sailboats without compromising the yacht’s performance capabilities."

Sail yacht KOKOMO is indicative of this direction.  The 58 meter sailboat reflects new heights of excellence in terms of design, technology, engineering, performance, and quality. 

Sail yacht KOKOMO luxury sail boat charter
With so much to offer, here are 4 great reasons to rent a sailing yacht: 

 1. Sailboats offer you the chance to experience and enjoy the journey as much as the destination. 

 2. Sailing yachts are more environmentally-responsible ("green") than motor yachts.

 3. Sailboats offer greater fuel economy and less fuel consumption than motor yachts.

 4. Sailboats can offer a more tranquil, relaxing experience than a cruise on a motor yacht.

46-meter Feadship Joins Growing Yacht Charter Fleet in the Maldives

Posted on

luxury motor yacht jana maldives yacht rental powerboat charter yacht holiday iates

After this weekend’s 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Feadship motor yacht JANA will hoist her anchor and reposition for the winter season in the Maldives. 

Expected to arrive in mid December, the classic 46-meter Feadship yacht charter vessel is currently available for a Christmas reservation. 

Motoryacht JANA will remain in the Maldives through mid April and joins a growing list of yachts for hire in this Indian Ocean paradise. 

Other megayachts committed to the winter season in the Maldives include the 64 meter Benetti motoryacht SILVER ANGEL, sail yacht PERLA DEL MARE, the 60 meter motor yacht ARKLEY, and the 150 foot motoryacht MOECCA.

Serving as a privately-chartered spectator yacht at this year’s Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi, Feadship yacht JANA will complete one more charter in Abu Dhabi in November before embarking for the Indian Ocean. 

Jana Sheeder, President, SailAway Yacht Charters, luxury yacht charter vacations

The prospect of offering alternative destinations for winter charters is exciting for JANA Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  “Our team is committed to expanding the destination options available to our clients,” says Sheeder.  “A winter holiday in the warm waters of the Maldives is an excellent alternative to the traditional Caribbean yacht charter vacation.”

The Maldives offer visitors the chance to enjoy crystal clear water and sugar white, sandy beaches.   Located in the Indian Ocean,  the Republic of Maldives is an island nation formed by a double-wrapped chain of twenty-six (26) atolls. The winter water temperature is amazingly warm, about 31 degrees celsius (87 degrees fahrenheit), and the opportunities for snorkeling and watersports seem endless. There are hundreds of reefs, many in the shallow waters of enclosed lagoons.

We hope to add even more megayachts to the growing list available this winter in the Maldives.
