90M motoryacht NERO and other luxury yacht charter vessels lauded for green practices

Posted on

THE AWARD

The Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) has announced the 2017 winners of the “Going Green To Save The Blue” campaign, and the crew onboard superyacht NERO have been recognized in the “Designer Water” contest.  The contest recognizes the crews of private luxury yacht charter vessels for their “yacht-made” water, as an effort to reduce the use of disposable plastic water bottles on yachts.

THE MESSAGE

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, and a CYBA member, explains the program – and the urgency of the underlying message

“The campaign is designed to encourage yacht owners and crews to reduce, and eventually forego, the use of plastic water bottles by both the crews and the onboard luxury yacht charter guests.  The goal is to raise awareness as to the massive volume of water bottles that are consumed during charters, and the impact disposable plastic has in our landfills and more importantly, our oceans.”

 

THE WINNERS

The “Designer Water” contest is held annually at the opening of the Caribbean yacht charter winter/spring season.  The season, which has just concluded for 2017, saw more than one dozen private yacht charter vessels and their crews showcase their “flavored” waters, all generated from onboard watermakers that convert seawater into clean, safe drinking water.

This year’s winners are:

  • 111 foot sailing yacht REE – for Hibiscus Martini Water
  • 183 foot sailing yacht ROSEHEARTY – for Moranga-infused Detoxifying Water
  • 265 foot mega yacht NERO – for Coriander and Passionfruit Water

 

THE PROGRAM

Now in its fifth year, the CYBA “Going Green To Save The Blue” campaign has a dual-fold strategy.  By encouraging yacht owners and crews to offer eco-friendly options, private yacht charter guests can participate in this sustainable initiative.  Hopefully, the guests return home with a clearer understanding of the impact of plastic pollution, as well as how they can incorporate simple changes in their daily lives that can make a difference in safeguarding our environment for future generations.

“The ‘Going Green’ campaign highlights the numerous opportunities and options available to our private yacht charter clients, yacht owners, and crews – from avoiding plastic water bottles, to using green cleaning products, reef-friendly sunscreens, and solar panels for energy,” says Sheeder. “We congratulate motor yacht NERO and her owner and crew and all of the other Caribbean yacht charter teams for their commitment to the long-term health of our oceans and the marine environment.”

 

If you’re considering a private yacht charter vacation, turn to 1-800 Yacht Charters, the company with the industry-leading Best Price Guarantee, and a fleet of Eco-friendly yachts around the world. Call us toll-free in North America at +1.800.922.4824 or local and international at +1.305.253.7245 to plan your yachting vacation.

Award-Winning Interior Design Captured In Yacht SEALYON Video

Posted on

Award-Winning Style

Back in 2009, when motor yacht SEALYON was first launched (her name at the time was yacht CANDYSCAPE II), we remember saying, “This yacht has, ‘it’ – that exceptional fusion of glamour, design, and quality. As it turned out, we were not alone in our praise of the Espen Øino-designed superyacht, built by Italy’s Viareggio Super Yachts.  Right out of the gate, the yacht scored a 2010 World Superyacht Award as the Best Displacement Motor Yacht, 500GT-1,299GT.

Interior Design As Sweet As Candy

That recognition was followed up in 2011 with a win at the International Yacht Awards in the category of “Power Yachts over 60 metres” for her outstanding interior design by Candy & Candy of London.  One judge referred to the interior as, “An eclectic collection of detailed decoration using veneers, fabrics, leathers, metals and stones to create a truly unique floating wonder.”  

 

Every Picture Tells A Story

Fast-forward to 2018, and the 202ft super yacht SEALYON, ex Candyscape II is still as impressive as the day she was first launched. T. Debuse, who oversees the  yacht charter management for the vessel’s owner says, “(charter yacht) SEALYON is undoubtedly a yacht that has fulfilled its mission statement with the highest build quality and superbly comfortable, beautifully decorated and detailed interior.” DeBuse also thinks the yacht’s new video captures the splendor of the yacht.  “They say a picture paints a 1000 words – the video of  Sealyon paints a picture indeed!”

 

A Week Your Family Will Never Forget…

The 61.8 meter superyacht offer accommodations for up to 12 guests, and is available for France yacht charter vacations along the Côte d’Azur in the summer, and St. Barts yacht charter holidays in the Caribbean in the winter and spring.  Rates start at €325,000 per week for low season dates.   For reservation requests, click HERE.

Charter Chef Passionate about Cooking and Travel

Posted on

catamaran charter sailboat multhull gourmet chef 5 star caribbean catamaran charter

While affordable catamaran sailing yachts under 50 feet still dominate the charter industry, advances in shipbuilding technology have lead to a dramatic increase of ultra-luxury catamarans larger than 60 feet in length.  Indeed, yachts like the 62′ catamaran IN THE WIND, and the Fountaine Pajot Galathea 65 model catamaran WORLD’S END have helped redefine multihull luxury and comfort.

Yet with so much emphasis placed on the size and amenities of the newest and largest yachts, it’s easy to overlook a key component to successful crewed catamaran charters – the crew!

Without the talents of an experienced skipper and a well-trained chef, a catamaran vacation, no matter how new and large the boat, would be nothing more than a predictable, ho-hum affair.

In an appreciative nod to the talents of these fine crews, we shine a spotlight today on Caro Uy, the culinary lioness aboard sail catamaran MUSE.

Caro grew up in a family where the pleasures of the table were a habit. She has more than ten years of experience in the catering and gastronomic food industry.  Originally a graphic designer, Caro now prefers to express her creative energy in the preparation of meals with seasonally fresh products.

MUSE catamaran charter chef Caro Uy award winning entree dessert coffee rent a sailboatCaro’s true gift is the ability to adapt her menus to suit any special dietary requirements of her onboard guests.

While her cooking is based on classic techniques, the variations of flavors are a reflection of her travels throughout the Middle East (Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Iran) ) as well as Mexico and Southeast Asia (Thailand and Vietnam).

Having grown up along Australia’s coast, Caro has always loved the sea and the romance of sailing.   She is also intrigued by what lies below the sea’s surface and is a PADI Open Water Dive Instructor, as well as a TDI Extended Range Diver.  Her ocean adventures have taken her to diverse ports of call such as the Canary Islands, Costa Brava, and the British Virgin Islands.

Her recent industry recognition includes top culinary honors at the November 2010 British Virgin Islands Boat Show where she won:

– 1st prize – Entrée Division
– 1st prize – Dessert Division
– 2nd prize – Salad/Appetizer Division
– 2nd prize – Coffee course

Congratulations, Caro! Your talents and passion are at the very heart of the joys of a memorable yachting vacation.

Construction Underway on Motor Yacht Project Barracuda, Turquoise Yachts

Posted on

Turkey’s Proteksan Turquoise Yachts Inc and London-based H2 Yacht Design, the team that produced the popular Miami yacht charter vessel, yacht SEQUEL P, and the award-winning motor yacht VICKY, are joining forces once again.

The new build currently named Turquoise Yachts Project Barracuda is expected to splash down in 2019.

With 74 meter yacht Barracuda, Turquoise Yachts and H2 will reprise the collaboration known for practicality and spaciousness.  The proven 70-meter platform gained international notice in 2013 at the Showboats Design Awards, where Proteksan Turquoise charter yacht VICKY won multiple awards for “Best Interior Layout” and “Best Recreational Area for Guest Use.”  

Interior spaces will again be designed by H2’s Ken Freivokh.  Freivokh’s clean conception will include his signature triple-deck high atrium amidships that will be the source of much of the natural light that will flow throughout the superyacht’s interior.

Charter guest accommodations will include a large master suite, two VIP staterooms and four additional guest cabins. Amenities will include a full beam sky lounge, beach club with spa features to accommodate wellness yacht charter clients, and an onboard cinema.

The Turkish yard and London designers also collaborated on the 70 meter motor yacht TALISMAN C, and the 54 meter motor yacht TURQUOISE, both launched in 2011.

Posted on

Book your luxury yacht charter vacation with SailAway

Can you believe it’s almost March? 

Now is the perfect time to set the wheels in motion for a spring or summer luxury mega yacht charter holiday.

The specialists at The SailAway Group sat down and came up with a short list of the top cruising destinations for 2011. They reviewed the “hot spots” from 2010, as well as the list of new locations that some mega yacht owners hope to visit this year.

The team compiled the list of the top 4 desirable yacht charter destinations for 2011 and the ultimate yachts to rent for the experience.

1.  Explore the Indian Ocean, on CLOUD 9.

The beautiful islands of the Seychelles and Maldives await visitors in the Indian Ocean. Explore the area aboard yacht CLOUD 9, a 196-foot motor yacht built specifically for charter.

Visitors to SailAway’s website and blog page are quite familiar with this vessel.  The winner of two design Awards,  the superyacht is outfitted with a gym and comes with lots of water toys. Her rates begin at  €315,000 per week.

2.  Go Down Under, with luxury yacht GALAXY

Last month, Oprah Winfrey spent a day sailing Sydney’s famous harbor with Russell Crowe, as part of her “Ultimate Australian Adventure Tour.”   There is little wonder why she chose this part of the world for her odyssey – from the vast Great Barrier Reef, to New Zealand’s scenic, craggy coastline, this is a yachtman’s paradise.
