In Living Color – Unique Yacht Paint Jobs

Posted on

Everyone knows that picking house paint colors isn’t just difficult, it’s terrifying! Pick colors that are blah, and your house will seem featureless and flat. But if the colors you pick are too bold, they might overwhelm the architecture…and upset your neighbors.

The best colors will highlight the most beautiful features of your home. Skillful use of color can even disguise design flaws, boosting the, “curb appeal” and market value of your home.

Finding that magic color combination also holds true for luxury mega yacht charter vessels. 

The first thing a potential client sees when preparing to rent a private yacht is the exterior. The “dock appeal” must catch the attention of the prospect and pique his curiosity to see the interior as well.

Traditionally, yachts were painted simply – clean, bright white.  With modern technology, new paints and colors that resist fading and the harsh marine environment have been developed.  Now, the only limit to the exterior color scheme of a yacht is the owner’s imagination.

Here’s a sampling of unique paint schemes and colors on some of the newest and largest yachts around the world:

Luxury yacht cruises QUINTA ESSENTIA charter motor yacht
QUITE ESSENTIAL  – With a striking color scheme of Oyster White and Merlot Red, developed by the owner in close collaboration with Dobroserdov Design, Heesen motor yacht Quite Essential will certainly not pass unnoticed in the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet.  It is said the red color was inspired by the owner’s love for Merlot wine!

judge, and X-Factor creator Simon Cowell, is known for wearing simple, dark colored T-shirts against pale blue jeans. The classic deep blue hull and gun-blue superstructure of Cowell’s yacht Slipstream sets the scene for a truly nautical and contemporary super yacht.

is based on the ancient yin yang symbol, a Chinese sign for the mixing of complementary opposites.  Launched in 2010, this magnificent Sunseeker 34 yacht mixes not only color, but also high-end amenities and comfort with performance and power.

MISTER JINGLES – the global debt crisis has focused great attention on the value of gold.  The color gold draws nearly as much attention, especially on  a yacht painted stem to stern in this shiny, metallic palette.  Designed and built by Italy’s Fashion Yachts, motor yacht Mister Jingles 
debuted as a luxury yacht charter vessel in 2009.  The metallic performance yacht  boasts a 35 knot cruising speed – perfect for quickly getting from one famous port to another.

.  It seems another type of race fan – Formula 1 cars – is just as proud to display his passion on a yacht.  The 37-Meter Heesen motor yacht Aurelia boast an unusual color scheme from Dobroserdov Design, inspired by the owner’s passion for racing cars.  Zoom Zoom Zoom!

Nomadic Chef Joins Heesen Yacht Aurelia for Balearic Island Yacht Charter Season

Posted on

Yacht Charter Chef Jason Carruthers

Yacht Charter Chef Carruthers

Freelance chef  Jason Carruthers has joined the crew onboard the 37 meter Formula 1 inspired motor yacht AURELIA for the upcoming Balearic Island yacht charter season.  Jason has spent the last 15 years traveling and honing his culinary skills, both on land an onboard private yacht charter vessels. His travels have helped him develop an extensive knowledge of international cuisine.  Now living in Palma Mallorca, Carruthers joins the 6-person yacht charter crew on board the sleek superyacht, whose home port is also Palma.
Carruthers explains how he developed his talents for cooking:

“As a private chef I have worked on land and water and cooked in some incredibly remote places where sourcing ingredients can be a daily challenge.  With extensive catering and consulting throughout Europe and working with chefs of all origins, I have been able to absorb a great knowledge of international cuisine.”

Aside from his culinary talents, Carruthers also holds an endorsement in Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (SCTW Maritme), as well as certificates in hygiene, and firefighting, and sea survival.

YACHT CHARTER COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

As he has previously worked on yachts, Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters sees Carruthers as a natural fit to serving onboard motor yacht Aurelia – one of her most popular Balearic Island yacht charter vessels.

“Sometimes, chefs with limited experience on a yacht have difficulty with the transition from working in a restaurant or private home to serving onboard a superyacht,” says Sheeder.  “Jason has a solid boating background, having served as both a chef and deckhand on motor yacht HUSH [38m] and motor yacht Osiana [25m].  He can drive a tender, take a turn on watch, and assist with safety issues.”

 

THE YACHT

Jason’s new home at sea, Heesen yacht Aurelia (priced from €105,000 per week), is well-known in the Balearics.

SPAIN YACHT CHARTER LICENSE

Yacht charters in Spain require the vessel secure a Spanish charter license in order to begin an conclude charters within Spanish waters.  Possessing this license gives Aurelia a distinct advantage over other charter vessels.  Without this license, a yacht can either start or end a charter in Spain – but it cannot do both. This forces unlicensed yachts to spend part of the charter period in far-away France – adding additional fuel costs to the charter customer’s tab (not to mention the loss of precious charter time in Spain).

YACHT ACCOMMODATIONS AND DETAILS

Aurelia offers accommodations for eight guests in four staterooms.  With her non-traditional paint scheme inspired by Formula 1 racing team colors, the yacht is instantly recognizable.  And just like a F-1 race car, this yacht is fast – hitting speeds of over 30 knots, while similar-sized motoryachts cruise at no more than 12-15 knots.  Charting a yacht with such impressive speed capabilities means Balearic island yacht charter clients can explore the entire chain of islands – from Ibiza to Mallorca, within a week-long getaway.

Race-Inspired Heesen Yacht Charter Vessel Secures Spanish Charter License

Posted on

 

There’s nothing like a few days in the sunny, warm waters of Spain to get you jazzed and looking forward to the summer season.  At least that what we hear from the owner and crew onboard the 37 meter Heesen motor yacht AURELIA.  After making a week-long appearance earlier this month at the Palma Superyacht Show, the crew reports a shiny new sticker now appears on the yacht’s windshield – a Spanish charter license – the mandatory requirement of any yacht wishing to legally offer Balearic Island yacht charters.

The Formula 1 race inspired motoryacht is now fully-licensed and legal to begin and end charters in Spanish waters, affording the head-turning yacht a distinct advantage over other yachts for hire.  Like any “racing team,” the professional crew of 6 is motivated to show up the competition – to the delight of their onboard guests!

“Foreign flagged yachts can enter Spanish waters,” explains Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters (a boutique company specializing in luxury yachting vacations for HNWI), “but unless they are licensed in Spain, they cannot pick up their guests in Spanish waters, nor can they charter to Spanish residents.  Securing a Spanish charter license is a real plus for our clients who wish to spend their entire superyacht experience in Spain, especially in the most popular destination, the Balearic Islands.”

The 37-meter motor yacht AURELIA features a unique exterior paint scheme, more synonymous with Grand Prix racing cars than superyachts.  Her interior by Bannenberg and Rowell continues the Formula 1 theme, with décor and guest cabins colored to pay homage to famous racing designers like Pininfarina and Bertone.   Four staterooms offer accommodations for up to 8 guests.
