Captain Ian Robertson reflects on what makes this yacht unique in the industry – the combination of a tranquil environment with modern amenities. 

“There is an atmosphere that radiates calmness, and you feel it from the moment you step aboard,” says Robertson. “The yacht as a whole is meticulously maintained, participating in two yard (maintenance) periods per year.  Our owner understands the importance of updating tenders, watersports equipment, and the onboard entertainment equipment on a regular basis.”

“There are plenty of watertoys both for children and adults,” says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters.  “The 12 crew members onboard motor yacht JO are among the best family-friendly crewmembers in the industry.”

Foodies will appreciate the talents of chef David Beltran, as he cooks with both passion and flare. His signature dish is “Veal Zurich.”  At mealtime, Beltran orates his menus to the guests, not in any traditional format, but in rhyming couplets – often interjecting a few words in Italian, Spanish, German, and French!

Similar yachts available for hire in the Caribbean include  50 meter motor yacht WHEELS,  58 meter yacht SKYFALL, and 45 meter motor yacht ILLUSION.

==========

Rates for motor yacht JO range from $175,000 per week for non-premium periods to $225,000 per week for year-end holidays.  Running expenses are extra.

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.

Jana Sheeder - transport of rescued dogs

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.

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.

Make or Break Mega Yacht Charter; it’s All about the Crew

Posted on

The success of a mega yacht charter, indeed the entire yacht charter season of a superyacht depends upon the ability of the vessel’s crew to meet the needs of the paying customers. The best cruising grounds and good weather matter little if the megayacht charter crew does not provide excellent service.

 

Superyacht crew

A luxury yacht charter client should be treated the same as you would treat the owner. The only difference is that the crew knows the preferences of an owner (e.g. his or her favorite restaurants, the time he or she likes to wake up in the morning, etc.). The crew does not know these preferences for a new mega yacht charter client.

This provides the crew with a challenge – to ensure that they learn as quickly as possible what the client expects to gain from the Mediterranean yacht charter experience.

It all comes down to this – the happiness of the lead charterer and his family and guests hinges on the effort expended by the staff of the superyacht, especially the Chief Stewardess and the Chef.

A good skipper will introduce the stewardess and chef to the lead charter client early on in the charter. This way, the stew can get a feeling of the level of service or distance expected by the customer, and the chef can get a sense of the level or formality needed with each meal presentation.

Whether a Mediterranean yacht charter or a Caribbean yacht charter, the captain’s role is challenging. He is legally bound to ensure the safety of the guests and crew and he has a priority to ensure that the owner’s property is safeguarded. At the same time, he has to keep the charter guests happy while they are on board, since the paying guests have a significant degree of freedom to decide the nature of the charter.

It is a delicate balancing act to ensure the clients’ demands do not compromise the crew.

The skipper must also comply with the laws of the territorial waters through which the superyacht passes, with particular importance placed on drug restrictions. The captain must impose his authority in the event of discovering the use of recreational drugs. In all superyacht cruising areas, this is illegal. The captain is potentially liable for any breach of the laws. Additionally, in many jurisdictions, the discovery of recreational drugs on board can result in the confiscation of the vessel by the local authorities.

It is essential that the captain ensures that all charter guests (and crew) obey these laws. Should there be an issue with this, the captain may need to refer to the owner/broker to agree on termination of a specific charter. Charter agreements provide the captain with full authority to prohibit the use of recreational drugs by the charter guests.

A seasoned yacht charter broker understands this delicate balancing act faced by a charter captain and crew. If the broker has previously handled a particular client on another vessel, he or she will discuss the characteristics of the client with the new captain, as well as the chef and stewardess.

Brokers also try to gather as much personal information about the charterer by means of a preference sheet. On such forms, the clients can spell out their food and beverage likes and dislikes as well as the recreational pursuits they hope to enjoy during the trip (shopping, swimming, quietly reading a good book, etc.). Such preference sheets help give the crew a deeper understanding of the charter guests desires and expectations.

At the conclusion of the luxury mega yacht charter vacation, it is equally important for the crew and broker to discuss the trip.  Per Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, “we ensure that all goes well during a charter, then we follow up after the charter to make sure that all details were perfect for the clients.  Personalized and prompt customer service is critical to us.  Our clients depend on our having everything organized before, during, and after their superyacht experience as they live their own lives. There is no second guessing in our service. It’s critical to us to make sure that everything was perfect so that we know for their repeat charters.  There is no excuse for not providing perfect service to discriminating clientele;”  thus, the feedback of the captain and senior crew enables the broker to build up a comprehensive picture of the client’s preferences for future engagements.

When the captain, crew, broker and customer work together, the odds are quite high for a successful and memorable holiday at sea.

Miami Yacht Show Gives Yacht Charter Maven Leg Up On The Competition

Posted on


ADVANTAGE, SHEEDER…

There’s an old saying in football – when your team is on offense, “take what the defense gives you.”  In other words, make the most of the opportunities that come your way.

No one understands that mentality more than our head honcho – Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.

Every President’s Day weekend, Jana rallies our team, and we invade the Miami Yacht Show, held in Miami Beach.  This year’s show runs from February 15 – 19, 2018.

Known predominately as a “sales” show, few yacht charter brokers attend, preferring to wait until the charter-only show season in late Spring.  What they don’t realize (and Jana does) is that many charter yachts are quietly listed  for sale, and they attend shows like Miami before entering the charter season.

We use this opportunity to inspect yachts and interview crews privately – without  our competitors trying to eavesdrop on our conversations.   With fewer distractions and interruptions, we can spend more quality time with the crews – discussing our past charters, planning fresh itineraries and activities for guests, and always looking for ways to deliver a unique Superyacht Experience to our repeat clients.


UBER?  NO, THANK YOU…

Of course, having more time to see the yachts only matters if you can get to the yachts – a tall task when the superyachts are spread across Miami Beach in two locations – one in front of the classic hotels along Collins Avenue, and the other 4 miles to the south, at Jungle Island Deep Harbor Marina.

Anyone who has visited Miami Beach during the yacht show knows the roadways are snarled by heavy vehicle congestion. It can literally take an hour in traffic to travel just one mile along Collins Avenue, with drivers cruising slowly to gawk at and take photos of the hundreds of yachts docked just feet away from the roadway.  Whether in a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or private car – it’s all the same: traffic, traffic, traffic…

Fortunately for us, Jana developed the ultimate solution to avoid gridlock – we zip around the marinas and pull up at the docks via boat!  Professional, fun, and unique – wonder what she has up her sleeve for the future?

Jana Sheeder leans on side of Jupiter yacht as it races along Miami skyline at sunset

 

For this year’s show, we used a Jupiter 31 center console model (after our Van Dutch 55 had mechanical problems).  [Side bar:  The Van Dutch is a stylish cruiser, and some of our superyacht clients had flown in to inspect several luxury yacht charter vessels with us.  We thought they would be bummed not to cruise “in style” on the Van Dutch 55.  Turns out they had a blast with Jana – roaring around Biscayne Bay in the fast Jupiter, and cruising up the Miami River for a dockside late lunch and sunset at the Casablanca Seafood Restaurant.  A special bonus was the sighting of a manatee and dolphins!  The Miami Magic…]

 

FOR CHARTER…

Some of our most popular charter yachts (and crews) came to town, including:

  • DOUBLE DOWN – 213 Foot Codedasa superyacht selected last season by one of our clients for a 10–day Greek yacht charter odyssey through the Ionian islands. [Click on the yacht name to see photos we took at the Miami Yacht Show…] 
  • BLISS – 145 Foot Heesen charteryacht – a fantastic modern yacht with a fun-loving crew who delivered a memorable Balearic islands yacht charter holiday to one of our Dutch clients and his family last July.
  • QUITE ESSENTIAL – 180 Foot Heesen – eco-friendly motoryacht with impressive looks and great interior comfort.  Another great superyacht for clients.

 

STUNNING NEW YACHT…

We also took the opportunity to inspect some brand new yachts for sale.  Why would we look at yachts not currently in charter?  Many buyers in the market for a brand new yacht will often buy a yacht, then enter it into the charter marketplace.  If this is done after the boat show season, there may not be an opportunity to inspect the yacht for many months.  We prefer to promote charter yachts that we have inspected, and while that’s not always the case, taking the time to look at popular, newly-built models increases the odds that we will see a new charter yacht before our competitors do.  We’re always looking for ways to stay a step ahead!

Our favorite new model at this year’s show is the NAVETTA 33, from the custom series of yachts built by Italy’s Ferretti Yachts.

Ferretti Custom Line 33 superyacht underway - heading to left of screen

 

Ferretti has already sold ten hulls since the model was launched in 2017.  After inspecting this yacht, it is easy to see why. The Navetta 33 Ferretti features a voluminous interior flooded with natural light through  floor-to-ceiling windows.  We walked through with one of our clients who has designed contemporary interiors for luxury suites in NBA arenas – and she was just as impressed!

 

THE 1-800 YACHT CHARTER DIFFERENCE…

So there you have it – another great yacht show for 1-800 Yacht Charters.  Jana took our team (and our clients) on some of the most popular luxury yacht charter vessels found anywhere in the world.  We also saw newly built yachts, and we’re anxious to see them enter the charter market.

Most importantly, we had the opportunity to spend quality time with our clients and share with them another aspect of our dedication to Delivering The Superyacht Experience…

Monitoring International Laws Keeps Yacht Charter Maven On Her Toes

Posted on

Digging Deeper

You would think Delivering the Superyacht Experience to boating clients would be pretty straightforward:  A client expresses interest in a yacht for a family vacation; the charter broker presents several options; and the client makes a selection.

In reality, it’s not nearly so clean and to the point  – at least not for the handful of super-brokers who handle the world’s elite travelers.   Just ask luxury yacht charter maven Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.

According to Sheeder, matching a yacht to the client’s budget is just the starting point.

“While our clients are most interested in a yacht’s layout, amenities, and price, we dig deeper – into the yacht’s registration, the nationalities of the crew, and any governmental regulations and laws that might impact the success of the charter and comfort and respect of our clients.”

 

photo of large red Maritime book on its side with a gavel lying on top

 

El Método Español

As an example, Sheeder mentioned the rules affecting yachts for hire in Spanish waters.  “We’ve seen a significant increase in interest in Spain, particularly Balearic Islands yacht charter vacations,” says Sheeder.  “Many yachts based in the South of France and Monaco are willing to deliver to the Balearics to accept theses charters.  However, yachts not in possession of a Spanish charter license are at a significant disadvantage, and face restrictions as to where the charter can begin and end, and what nationalities are permitted in the crew.  Something as simple as bringing on a Spanish resident to offer therapeutic massages to the charter guests could be a problem if the yacht is not licensed for charter in Spain.”

Other licensing and legality issues Sheeder and her staff monitor are:

  • Local regulations regarding the charter guests’ use of watertoys such as waverunners.
  • VAT implications of chartering in certain European Union countries.
  • Advance entry requirements prior to arrival in certain ports of call.

 

“Not understating these regulations and laws can result in a negative experience for the charterer and  guests, and in some cases increase the overall cost of the charter by 10% or more – a significant sum considering many charters are priced in the €500,000 to €1,000,000 per week range.”                 

 

La Manière Française

Currently, Sheeder is monitoring the possible impact of French social security tax responsibilities on yacht crews.  In March 2017, a decree was passed to require crewmembers and their non-French employers (the yacht owners) to make contributions to ENIM – the French mariners’ social security agency. Any yachts and crews spending more than 90 consecutive days in France or French waters are subject to the tax.  The decree was suspended Sept 13, following a disastrous summer tourist season that saw France luxury yacht charter revenues plummet by 40%.

Sheeder is waiting to see if the decree is actually overturned in 2018, or if it will come back in a modified form. “These increased costs associated with crew wages end up being are passed on to the charterer, in the form of higher rates for yacht rentals,” says Sheeder.    If the decree is reinstated, Sheeder plans to either offer her clients yachts with French crew, or to convince them to bypass French waters and charter elsewhere in the region.

 

Going The Extra Mile

Do affluent charter clients realize the level of detail involved in orchestrating a vacation on a superyacht?  Sheeder chuckles at the question: “Probably not, but that’s fine with us. It’s like an attorney getting your traffic ticket dismissed in court.  You don’t care how he or she does it –  as long as you don’t have to pay the ticket!  It’s a similar scenario for us – we obsess over the small details in order to deliver a memorable vacation experience to our clients.  A pat on the back is nice, but a satisfied charterer who becomes a repeat customer is even better!”

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

A luxury yacht charter is the ultimate vacation for today’s elite travelers.  Wired, connected, and driven by sustainability and the greater social good, they want to immerse themselves and participate in unique cultural events. 1-800 Yacht Charters understands that their chartered yacht must serve as a platform to an eco-friendly adventure – a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.  If this sounds like your next vacation, CONTACT our charter consultants at:  1.800.922.4824 (North America) or 305-253-7245 (local South Florida and international) today.

Motor Yacht TAIL LIGHTS & Crew Impress Multi-Repeat Luxury Yacht Charter Family

Posted on

After some shipyard time in Georgia, the popular and highly successful charter yacht TAIL LIGHTS headed to the Bahamas in charter ready and Bristol condition.  The 116ft Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS looked amazing and had lots of new toys and goods onboard to start her first charter in Nassau on November 21st.

Yacht Tail Lights running next to her tender - aerial view

 

A recent charter guest took the time to share her thoughts about her family’s superyacht experience onboard Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS.  What lends credence to her comments is the fact she has chartered three times prior.  In her own words,

 

“We just got off the boat this morning. This was my fourth trip on a (luxury yacht) charter vessel and found it to be at least equal to but in many ways better than the previous trips I had taken. Captain Steve Kemp was awesome. He was extremely organized and looked after every detail of the trip. When we needed to adjust he was quick to respond and very accommodating. The crew was fantastic and also very accommodating. The girls were all Johnny-on-the-spot with food, drinks, and any other need we had. The staterooms were always looked after and kept pristine during our trip. Very pleasant personalities and fun to talk to. Jeff made sure the boat and tender were operating perfectly and was also very accommodating when we wanted to tour the engine room. The boat itself was appointed very nicely and it was obvious that she had been upgraded recently. It looked brand new. I would highly recommend (yacht) Tail Lights and its crew, particularly Steve the captain. I certainly would look into chartering her again.”

New Delta Motor Yacht Arianna Prepares to Enter Luxury Yacht Charter Market

Posted on

Motoryacht Arianna at anchor, facing right, with dry mountains in the background covered in snow on tips

Delta Marine, a US-based shipbuilder, has announced the launch of its latest custom superyacht, motor yacht ARIANNA.  Designed and engineered by the Delta Design Group, motor yacht ARIANNA is said to be the world’s largest all composite 50 meter full-displacement motoryacht.Launched in April 2012, M/Y ARIANNA, formerly Project 164041, has more than 780 gross tons ITC, a beam of nearly 34 feet, and over 7,500 square feet of living area, giving her more interior volume than any other yacht her length.

The Delta Design Group was commissioned by the yacht owner to create a Polynesian-inspired interior that is elegant, comfortable, and suitable for a family at home on the seas. The interior design is adorned with tropical hardwoods including Mascassar ebony, Wenge, and Koa. Balinese inspired touches such as a solid slab dining table and colorful blown glass lighting complete the design elements. Other unique details include inlaid silk carpets, organic fabrics, woven leather, and natural stone.

One design element worthy of mention is the large master stateroom on the upper deck.  This cabin features a lounge as well as a private outdoor deck and dining area.  Forward on the main deck, where the master stateroom is traditionally located, is a fully-equipped gym with a sauna, and a private office.

Per 1-800 Yacht Charters President, Jana Sheeder:
