The rush is on to book a last minute Monaco Grand Prix yacht!
As the dates draw closer for Europe’s premier Formula 1 Grand Prix and similar special events such as the Cannes Film Festival, charter customers are cautioned to first concentrate on where they will dock their rental yacht.
"When a customer contacts us to rent a Monaco Grand Prix yacht, we immediately focus on securing a berth in Port Hercules, the only marina adjacent to the race course," says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters. "The only way to view the race from the deck of a yacht is to be moored in the marina, preferably in Zone 1, closest to the track and Jumbotron."
Unless you are a race team sponsor, dock space in the port is reserved via a written application and can take up to 5 weeks to process.
"It doesn’t matter if you want to attend the Grand Prix in Monaco or the Film Festival in Cannes, you must make it a priority to secure a berth many weeks, if not months, prior to the event," reports Sheeder. "We hear horror stories where people have rented a yacht only to find their charter broker did not secure dockage at the marina closest to the special event location."
With nearly all available dockage already reserved for the Grand Prix, Sheeder and her team are now promoting yachts that are available for the race dates AND have already secured premium dockage.
"We have several yachts such as the 26 meter JACKIE ONE, available for the race and with a secured berth in Zone 1, right next to the racecourse," claims Sheeder.
Launched in 2001, the 82-foot Amer motor yacht JACKIE ONE combines elegance with comfort and space. Refit in 2007 by Maiora, the yacht she is now equipped with a large hydro-massage Jacuzzi.
Her wide salon offers a comfortable entertainment area and home theatre system for relaxing moments. Large windows give brightness to the area and illuminates the refined furnishings. Meals can be served in a choice of four different areas: at the dining table in the salon; inside the spacious cockpit; on the aft deck; or on the upper deck.
While at dockside, the yacht can host up to 30 passengers for watching the race or for evening cocktail parties. For overnight guests, the yacht provides four spacious cabins with accommodations for 8 guests.
The flybridge is equipped with a large Jacuzzi for 4-6 people along with adjacent sunbathing cushions.
