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.
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).
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.

She’s not scheduled to splash down until 2018, but that’s not keeping eager Greek yacht charter clients from placing deposits for vacations next summer on this new 40 meter yacht.
The Sunseeker 131 motor yacht AQUA LIBRA 131 is still in her build shed in Dorset, but the buzz surrounding the opportunity to secure a brand new yacht to explore the Greek islands has prospective customers stepping forward to secure prime dates.
“Two reservations have already been secured for summer 2018,” says a smiling Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “One client has secured 4 nights in late June and another grabbed the first 14 days of July. It’s always so great to see dates locked down a full year in advance.”
While it is true that affluent travelers are not inclined to secure private luxury yacht charter vacations so far in advance, they will pony up early when they see a unique opportunity. Motor yacht AQUA LIBRA 131 presents such a scenario.
For years, Greece has remained one of the most popular summer cruising destinations – dozens of islands can be visited, and the number of historical points of interest dated to the beginning of civilization are in the hundreds. Oh yeah – the warm weather in the summer is spectacular!
But for all the destination’s allure, the yachts that offered charters in Greece were often considered inferior in overall comfort and quality to those yachts HNWI’s could charter in France and Monaco, along the Côte d’Azur.
Greek yacht operators, in a testament to their seafaring heritage, often offered wooden ships, called motorsailers (or “gulets” as they are known in neighboring Turkey) to the charter market. As charming as these traditional vessels are, they simply lack the sophistication of ultra-modern superyachts. Whereas you are hard-pressed to find a motorsailer with an open-air Jacuzzi-style tub on the deck, it is nearly impossible to find a superyacht that doesn’t have at least one hot tub on deck – as well as other luxury amenities like onboard cinemas, spas, beauty salons, and helipads.
Yacht owners in Greece, and indeed the Greek people themselves, are a wonderful and proud lot – and they should be! They live in the cradle of civilization, and so much of our modern technical gains in math and the sciences can be traced back to the Hellenic culture. It is understandable to see why they have held to their traditional ways – and their traditional yachts.
Still, HNWI’s want what they want – and for the well-heeled, a superyacht filled with modern amenities is the preferred mode of transport during an ultraluxury holiday.
That leads us to Sunseeker motoryacht AQUA LIBRA 131, now accepting charter reservations a full year before her build is completed. The British-built tri-deck Sunseeker 131 epitomizes everything that HNWI’s seek in their superyacht experience: accommodations in sublime surroundings, immense scale, and a layout that lends to relaxing and socializing with friends and special guests.
Here’s how Sunseeker describes their own 131 model:
“Expertly finished using ultra-modern materials and techniques, the 131 Yacht is one of the finest examples of modern day superyacht building. The main deck features a lounge, separate dining area and full galley, while on the upper deck you’ll find the sky lounge, cocktail bar and access to the skydeck; where comfort and lavishness reach new levels. As impressive out in open water as it is in the harbour, this icon of design is unlike any other.”
Guest accommodations are available for up to 10 passengers in 5 staterooms:
As you would expect, all staterooms offer ensuite facilities.
For indoor entertainment , the yacht offers a Sonos AV System, with video on demand, as well as Apple TVs, and full satellite services. Of course, the yacht offers Wi-Fi on all decks.
Don’t plan on staying indoors too long, because Greece is all about the scenery and the warm Aegean sea. To enjoy the ocean, this new yacht will have a complete inventory of watersports equipment, including:
There are many other Sunseeker models currently in charter in the Mediterranean. While builders with classical style yachts such as Lurssen and Benetti tend to attract older charterers, Sunseeker yacht charters appeal to young entrepreneurs and their families. There’s a modern, contemporary “Vibe” onboard a Sunseeker. No shot at Lurssen and the classic models – Sunseeker simply offers a different feel, and for a different charter client.
Other Sunseeker vessels currently available include:
Sunseeker 116 motor yacht FLEUR
Sunseeker 130 yacht THUMPER
Sunseeker 155 superyacht PRINCESS AVK
As the new AQUA LIBRA 131 Sunseeker continues to attract attention – and bookings, it is likely that more and more owners of new-build yachts will forgo the traditional Western Med ports of France and Monaco, and position for the summer in the Eastern Med in Greece – Opa!!!
Even the little Kallikantzari hobgoblins will crawl out from the underground when this beautiful, new yacht is delivered to Greece next summer — like a Christmas gift during the summertime!

Hosted by the editors of Boat International Media, the awards honor the finest new vessels delivered to their owners in the past twelve months.
Considered the “Oscars” of the megayacht industry – the ceremony scheduled for May 7, 2011 will be attended by an elite guest list of owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the business of boats.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at a few of the 62 finalists in contention to receive a coveted Neptune Trophy:
While it sometimes seems sail boat charters take a back seat to their motor yacht rivals, a privileged few will be fortunate enough to experience sail yacht PANTHALASSA under sail.
The 56 meter megayacht is nominated for Best Sailing Yacht in 45 meter and up category.
The vessel presents a fusion of contemporary living and the finest nautical heritage. Her interior is luxurious and features a rich contemporary decor, delightful to the eye and soothing to the soul. Sail mega yacht PANTHALASSA reflects an outstanding creative synthesis between Perini Navi and Foster & Partners.
Natural daylight suffuses the interior of the superyacht, through the unique skylights that channel light from the sundeck and oversized portholes. The clean lines and uncluttered style of her interior offer contemporary living at its best. Central to the luxury yacht charter vessel, the gracefully flowing stairwell is wrapped in a translucent acrylic enclosure allowing light to flow through the main saloon.
A tactile and warm ambiance is created through the use of warm, natural organic tones and the combination of teak flooring with saddle leather wall paneling and granite surfaces. Flexible multifunctional spaces offer a host of well conceived opportunities for social interaction or intimate gatherings. the dining table can become a coffee table , the library is positioned with views over open water for a feeling of deep relaxation and enhancing contemplation. The boardroom with its video conferencing facilities is also a perfect dining area and the sweeping sofa in the saloon becomes a bar.
The ability to conduct business while onboard makes this superyacht the perfect special event charter vessel, and an ideal candidate for MIPIM, the Cannes Film Festival, and the Monaco Grand Prix. Electric glazed screens allow the entire main saloon , dining area, and wheelhouse to be divided or unified into a one large living space.
Contact our vacation specialists to reserve sail yacht PANTHALASSA or any other in our inventory.
Patrick Knowles is a tasteful mix of textures, fine art, and neutral colors in furniture, fabric, carpeting, and stonework. The formal dining area is nothing short of stunning – with a table that seats 14 comfortably.
MI SUENO’s charter rates begin at €280,000 EUROS per week. We would love to charter her to you for the vacation of a lifetime! Give us a call or email! For more information about luxury motoryacht MI SUENO, contact SailAway Yacht Charters at: http://www.1800sailaway.com/contact_us.html

We just received word Alloy sail yacht VERTIGO has committed to accept charters in Patagonia and Antarctica, starting February 2016. Rates are set at Euro 295,000 per week plus running expenses for a maximum 12 guests.
Having recently wrapped up her Monaco yacht charter season, the luxury sailing yacht spent the month of October in Singapore for maintenance work prior to her journey to the southern hemisphere in November.
Built by Alloy Yachts, and designed by Philippe Briand, the 67 meter yacht VERTIGO is the largest sailing yacht built in the southern hemisphere.
Her amenities and features include:
We find the idea of a Patagonia yacht charter immensely intriguing. This is a sparsely populated area located at the southern tip South America, with the western coastline belonging to Chile and the eastern side, part of Argentina. The opportunities for exploration and adventure are numerous, as this region comprises the southernmost portion of the Andes mountains. Just east of the mountains, there is great bio-diversity with deserts, steppes, and grasslands. The western coast of Patagonia borders the Pacific ocean, and the eastern coast borders the Atlantic ocean.

The excitement of Formula 1 racing comes to Abu Dhabi this month, and the best seat in the house is undoubtedly onboard the private luxury yacht MOGAMBO.
Now moored at Yas Marina, directly adjacent to the race course, the 74m Nobiskrug yacht MOGAMBO is available for an Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yacht Charter. Her weekly rental rate is $650,000, plus running expenses. A 5-night minimum reservation is required, spanning the actual race dates of November 25-27.
Built in 2012, super yacht MOGAMBO looks better than ever, having undergone a partial refit. She’s been fully repainted, and he now has a 7th cabin for added flexibility for charter guests and/or occasional workers. The sundeck Jacuzzi has been significantly enlarged, and the gym has been redesigned.
The yacht’s key features include:
The 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX is the Middle East’s biggest international sporting event and the only twilight race on the F1® calendar. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is just one of two Formula 1 circuit races that directly encompass a marina where guests can enjoy the action from the deck of a superyacht. The other is Monaco. Grand Prix yacht charter vacations in Monaco are famous for their celebrity parties and many racing sponsors hire yachts to serve as private, secure viewing platforms. Much of the course in the Abu Dhabi race hugs the Yas Marina Circuit and viewing the action from a yacht is unobstructed by bleachers or buildings.
The post-race fireworks extravaganza is truly amazing as well!!!
Catch all the action from the deck of your own private yacht charter vessel, from 1-800 Yacht Charters. Text GRAND PRIX YACHT CHARTER to 305-720-7245 for more information. See you on the Circuit!
