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.
Call it, “Life imitating art.” They were 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.’
Obviously the film’s director, Steven Spielberg, took that sentiment to heart. His 282 foot superyacht is up for sale. It will be replaced with an even larger vessel.
Oceanco 2010 Spielberg yacht SEVEN SEAS lived up to its name. The famous director, his wife Kate Capshaw, and their seven children made it happen. They 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. For instance, Gyneth Paltrow and Leonardo DiCaprio. The UK’s Daily News wrote an article. 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.”
COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS
The yacht is sometimes available for hire. This season’s charter rate in the Mediterranean is $1.2 million per week.
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.
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.”
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.

For instance, Mallorca, Menorca and Cabrera in the North. Second is Pitiusas. For instance, Ibiza and Formentera in the Southwest. Numerous coves and protected anchorages make the Balearics an ideal yachting destination. She is especially desirable during warm summer months.

JANA SHEEDER COMMENTS
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. The Republic of Maldives is located in the Indian Ocean. It is an island nation. In specific, formed by a double-wrapped chain of twenty-six (26) atolls. The winter water temperature is amazingly warm. Specifically, about 31 degrees celsius (87 degrees fahrenheit). Opportunities for snorkeling and watersports are endless. There are hundreds of reefs. In addition, 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.”
