Build Team, Owner Reflect On Motor Yacht JOY, New Feadship Yacht Charter

Posted on

What do you get when you merge the vision of a new yacht owner who has never owned a boat, with the talents of Europe’s leading design studios and Holland’s premier yacht builder?

The answer is the radically-styled 70 meter Feadship motor yacht JOY.

Launched in July,  the latest creation by the craftsmen at Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards, superyacht JOY was built for a young American owner from New York. Amazingly, it is not only the first yacht he has ever built – it is the first yacht he has ever owned.

Joy yacht aft

 

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, commented on how the owner’s lack of involvement in the yachting industry led to the creation of a unique vessel, unlike any other yacht in the 70 meter range: “You take an ambitious, youthful person, who has no pre-conceived bias as to what is expected when you design and build a superyacht, and you open the door to a fresh perspective on how a yacht can reflect the owner’s vision of what The Superyacht Experience can be.”

At the commencement of the project, the owner’s brief was simple and clear, and brimming with the optimism of youth:  “Create something totally different to every other yacht.”

Recognizing the need to bring a fresh approach to the entire project, Feadship reached out to designers never before retained.  For the avant-garde exterior, they turned to the design studio of Bannenberg & Rowell.  Interior architecture was assigned to Studio Indigo. Visually, superyacht JOY looks like no other. The wide walkways and flow between the interior and exterior spaces are without precedent on superyachts of this size. Dickie Bannenberg commented, “You will see there are a lot of sculpted and rather complex surfaces that give the design a very unique look.”

Of course, crafting the  fascinating concave shapes in the yacht’s superstructure presented challenges to the builder.  At the launch ceremony, Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuy said, “(motor yacht ) JOY was an incredibly complicated boat to build with so many shapes and lines. We are very grateful to the fairing gods at Feadship and all the other craftsmen who have showcased their skills on such a unique boat.”

The proud new owner was equally pleased by the results of the challenging build.  “Studio Indigo has worked amazingly hard to produce such a gorgeous design with an incredible focus on detail. I’m also delighted with Bannenberg & Rowell’s sleek and progressive profile that reflects my desire to go forward into the future.”

With a yacht name reflecting the owner’s joyous enthusiasm for life and the opportunities for self-growth and exploration that only time aboard a yacht can bring, the owner reflected on a recent visit he made to New York’s Central Park. “When I saw the statue of Columbus it reminded me of how much joy this explorer felt when he first saw land. Today is my moment of joy as something I have long dreamt about has come to light. I’m incredibly happy and sincerely grateful to Feadship and all the other team members who made this happen.”

For her part, Sheeder is thrilled to have the opportunity to promote this yacht to her clients seeking wellness yacht charters. “The mix of spa-like amenities is amazing, from the Jacuzzi sun deck, to the massage room, to the ocean-level beach club. Where else can you exercise in a gym with panoramic views of the sea, and then rest and reflect in a minimalist interior with textures and colors designed to invoke feelings of tranquility and wellness?”

 “In a sea of cookie-cutter designed boats, this is a transcendent yacht that will quickly set a new standard in the charter market.”

===================

Rates for a St Martin yacht charter in winter start at $600,000 per week.  Rates for summer, 2017 Monaco yacht charters start at €600,000 per week.  Charter superyacht JOY through 1-800 Yacht Charters at info@1800yachtchartrers.com

CEO of 1-800-YACHTCHARTERS Balances Work with Passion for Animal Rights

Posted on

Arranging luxury yacht charter vacations for celebrities and corporate titans requires Jana Sheeder to mix and mingle with the rich and famous at cocktail parties and special events like the Super Bowl and the Sony Ericsson Miami Open tennis tournament. While it sounds glamorous, Sheeder is quick to tell you she is happiest in a pair of workboots, cleaning a horse stable at an animal sanctuary.

Arranging  a Caribbean or Mediterranean yacht charter vacation on a superyacht is my vocation, but my passion is animal welfare,” says Sheeder, CEO of 1-800-YACHT CHARTERS.

Jana Sheeder CEO 1-800-YACHTCHARTERS

It is a balancing act that requires tight scheduling and unwavering commitment to protecting abused and homeless animals. A typical day begins with releasing butterflies that Jana has raised to help pollinate the environment, then on to business meetings and emails to prospective megayacht charter customers.  Throw in the occasional personal inspection of a newly built superyacht, as its crew prepares the yacht for entry into the yacht charter marketplace. Later in the day, Sheeder exchanges her business suit for a pair of bluejeans and heads to the local animal shelter to assist in a pet adoption event.

Weekends are a blur, as Sheeder often volunteers to help transport 5 to 20 rescued dogs and cats to a sanctuary 100 miles away. When not transporting animals, Sheeder spends time at a horse sanctuary, feeding and caring for abused and abandoned horses and other livestock, like goats, chickens, cows, and pigs.

Recently, Sheeder drew the attention of TV’s Animal Planet as well as radio, news media, and newspapers after a serial cat killing spree left over two dozen dead and mutilated cats in South Florida. Sheeder worked with local animal rights advocates to arrange a safety seminar for hundreds of residents. A suspect was arrested just three days before the seminar. Sheeder cancelled the seminar and used the allocated time to spend the day volunteering at the county animal shelter!

It’s all about making a difference in others’ lives – human OR animal.

Famous Superyacht Owner Says He Makes Stupid Money

Johnny Depp vanity fair stupid money 300 million dollars luxury sailing yacht charter vajoliroja

A well known owner of a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel charges nearly €100,000 per week to rent his yacht, but it is his day job that brings him vast sums of money.

Actor Johnny Depp, owner of the 156′ motor yacht VAJOLIROJA, opens up about his staggering paychecks in the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he admits in the magazine article.  “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

Depp has shot to the top of the list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, thanks to the stellar success of Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.   While Depp is mum on the size of his Pirates “ransom,” a recent report puts his total take in the $300 million range, due to a gross-profit-sharing deal brokered with Disney. To date, the four-film franchise has tallied $3.7 billion in worldwide receipts, and Depp is slated to star in a 5th installment.

It’s believed Depp’s passion for the sea, and his purchase of a mega yacht charter vessel stems from his years of filming the Pirates movies in exotic locales such as the Bahamas.  His yacht, motor yacht VaJoLiRoJa — the boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack — is a 156 foot yacht of distinctive character, inspired by the classic gentleman’s yachts of the 1930’s.

The lavishly-styled interior evokes the romance and glamour of a bygone era (with a few pirate-themed hints throughout).

Relive the Golden Era of yachting on board a classic yacht this winter.  Depp’s yacht VAJOLIROJA is available for hire in the Bahamas or St Martin, and joins another classic-style Caribbean charter yacht,

Gulp – Private Luxury Yacht Charter Builder Swallows In-Country Rival

Posted on

It appears topping their fatherland rival by building the world’s largest yacht wasn’t good enough for Lürssen Yachts. With that title in hand, the German superyacht builder commenced to gobble up their leading competitor, and take over their entire operation.

Bremen-based Lürssen Yachts has announced the acquisition of Hamburg’s superyacht builder, Blohm+Voss.

According to Peter Luerssen, Managing Partner, “With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss we are taking over a shipyard with a strategically advantageous location and versatile production facilities. We want to use these facilities to complement our existing refit and repair activities and also to offer our customers an ever better service.”

Lurssen shipyard with yacht Azzam in water

With the 2013 launch of the world’s largest yacht, the 180 meter motor yacht AZZAM, Lürssen wrestled the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich-owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.

Of the 10 largest yachts in service today, Lürssen has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.

In the charter industry, many Lürssen Yacht charter vessels are among, the largest yachts offered for hire, including the 94 meter (308ft) Lürssen yacht Kismet II and the 70 meter (230ft) Lurssen motor yacht Martha Ann.

Luxury yacht charter vacationers? What’s in Store for 2-0-1-4??

Posted on

Trends for 2014:

  • Smartphones, tablets, and any handheld computers are the norm (versus desktop computers). Even people resistant to change in their personal and professional lives are changing to adopt technology. Everyone has access to computers and smartphones…regardless of his/her “station in life.”smartphones iphone samsung galaxy android htc 2014 trends smart phones and handheld computers and tablets
  • The “personal touch” between family, friends, businesses, and clients must receive direct focus in order to stay an important aspect of life.  The “use it or lose it” belief is alive and well.
  • Handwritten communication is fading into the past, without direct use and practice.  Schools no longer teach personalization in life. Technology has center stage, which is a blessing (technological medical advances move closer to cures ever day…diagnosis, treatments, and surgeries are complete different than they were in the past)…and a curse (what happened to handwritten communication and face-to-face meetings).
  • Society in general is moving more toward caring for others (think: Pay It Forward, Practice Random Acts of Kindness) and for animals.2014 trends make a difference pay it forward practice random acts of kindness charter luxury clients care
  • People are stepping up to help others (and to keep others – and animals – from harm) in my experience.  Companies are making more sustainable products and being more environmentally responsible.
  • All aspects of life are being directed toward recycling, reducing, and reusing….just loving the Earth and caring about our surroundings.reduce reuse recycle in all aspects of life save the earth what can i do to help the earth
  • There’s a dramatic shift toward “Making a Difference.”

 

Here’s to another wonderful year ahead!  Thank you for making a difference with 1-800 Yacht Charters!
