Amels Brews Magical Elixir 4You…Yacht Charters Will Never Be the Same

Posted on

Thinking about a St Barts yacht charter this December on a comfortable, head-turning megayacht?  If you are, we have great news.

Two Amels Limited Editions 180 superyachts have just announced plans to head to the Caribbean this winter, and both will remain in the area through Spring 2017.

Amels motor yacht ELIXIR and yacht 4YOU, Limited Editions 180 models will be available this December, 2016 through April, 2017 for British Virgin Island yacht charter reservations, or further south in the area of St. Martin and St Barts.


Built in 2012, Amels yacht 4YOU features a stunning contemporary Laura Sessa interior and sleeps 10 to 12 in 6 guest cabins.  The newer yacht ELIXIR, Amels 180 offers accommodations for 10 guests in 5 cabins, and also boats a Laura Sessa interior with a bit more eclectic look than 4YOU.

The Limited Editions AMELS 180 series is designed by naval architect Tim Heywood.  Ever-evolving, it is considered one of the most refined and smooth-functioning yachts in the 55-meter range. The Master suite is fitted with a folding balcony, with two more balconies attached to the main desk salon.  The roomy Sun Deck is 25 meters long with a luxury space of 155 square meters – quite possible the largest sun deck you’ll find on any 55 meter charter vessel this winter and spring in the Caribbean…

Rates begin at €275,000 per week — up to €310,000 per week for holiday dates…

Top 5 Yacht Names Inspired By “Love” – #1 Is A Hoot!

Posted on

Valentine’s Day – that yearly opportunity to profess our love to that special someone in our lives.  For many of us, we turn to traditional gifts like chocolate, flowers, or a romantic dinner to express our affection.

Ah, but the super-rich are different. Even gifts of jewelry pale in comparison to the grandiose gestures some HNWI’s (high net-worth individuals) bestow on their significant others and loved ones.

Yep, when it comes to over-the-top, what says “je t’aime mon tresor” more than a gift of a private superyacht???

Of course, the ultimate enhancement to the ultimate gift – naming your yacht to honor the one you love…

In celebration of Valentine’s Day 2016, we share our favorite 5 private yacht charter vessels with names inspired by love.  Some names are whimsical and cute, others haughty.  Our favorite name, # 1, is simple and oh-so-perfect — boasting the two most famous words uttered by almost every man who understands (and appreciates) who’s really the boss!

5.  4YOU – Imagine the surprise when this owner turned to his wife and handed her the keys to a 180 foot megayacht, aptly named, 4YOU.  Launched in 2012, this spectacular yacht from the Amels Limited Edition 180 series was designed by Tim Heywood, and features a stunning modern-chic interior by Laura Sessa Romboli. Up to 12 guests can enjoy a Greek yacht charter vacation, from €280,000 per week

4.  DREAM PRINCESS – Sure, lots of guys call their lady a, “Princess.”  But a DREAM PRINCESS? That’s ramping it up another notch.  A popular yacht for special events (e.g. Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter, MIPIM yacht charter, etc.), this Princess 64 motor yacht is a vessel with a real sense of occasion. She offers exceptional performance and boasts a sleek, sporty profile hiding a spacious three-cabin charter layout.  Her interior is light, with elegant details.  Rates from €18,000 per week

3.  HONEY BEAR – Every once in a while, we find a yacht named by a woman for the man in her life.  The 28 meter Sunseeker 90 yacht HONEY BEAR is a fast, fun yacht for sophisticated yet informal Monaco yacht charter holidays. Her modern yet warm interior offers plenty of space for relaxation, and her open deck areas are perfect for enjoying the sunshine. She provides accommodations for 8 guests in 4 staterooms and is priced from €45,000 per week

2.  LADY BRIT – there are lots of “Ladies” in the charter fleet, Lady Sheila, Lady Victoria, and more. Still, one stands out for her simple, elegant name – the epitome of European class:  LADY BRIT.  Surprisingly, the yacht was not named for the owner’s wife, but rather, in honor of his mother. The 207 foot Feadship yacht LADY BRIT offers the ideal platform for a resort-style St Barts Yacht Charter in the Caribbean, as she features a wellness spa, gymnasium with panoramic views, outdoor cinema, and an authentic Finnish sauna with private access to the water.  Weekly rates start at $445,000 per week

1.  YES DEAR – what man hasn’t uttered those two words to his special someone???  A Voyage 580 Virgin Islands catamaran charter vessel, sail yacht YES DEAR is 58 feet long and 31 feet wide – the perfect design for maximum comfort and stability.  She features 5 cabins for up to 10 guests, and her weekly rates start at $24,000.  Funny side note – her dinghy is named, “No Dear.

Happy Valentines’ Day from Jana Sheeder, President and Owner, and the rest of the team at 1-800 Yacht Charters
