28 Passenger Superyacht To Make St. Martin Yacht Charter Debut This Winter

Posted on

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.

O'Mega superyacht underway

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).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christina O Motoryacht underway

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.  For more information on yacht charter vessels and destinations, go to https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ now.

282 Foot Spielberg Yacht SEVEN SEAS For Sale

Posted on

BIGGER BOAT

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.’

 

SPIELBERG

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.

 

SEVEN SEAS

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.

CELEBRITY GUESTS

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.

“She has always been a favorite charter yacht,” says Jana Sheeder, President and yacht charter Maven of 1-800 Yacht Charters.

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.

Lucky pooch!
