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

Posted on


The Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) has announced the 2017 winners of the “Going Green To Save The Blue” campaign, and the crew onboard yacht 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.

three round glasses containing water infused with strawberries blueberries pomegranate orange cucumber




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 “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



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.

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.

Motoryacht PARTY GIRL 146 Ready for Caribbean Yacht Charter Action

Posted on

At the end of the Caribbean yacht charter season, most megayacht vessels like Christensen Motor yacht PARTY GIRL 146 leave the confines of the island life behind, and begin the three-week migration “across the pond” (the Atlantic ocean). Once there, they prepare for the popular Mediterranean yacht charter season. Super yacht PARTYGIRL 146, however, is not like other luxury yacht charter vessels. 

PARTY GIRL motoryacht profile

The owner of this 2008 Christensen motoryacht prefers the warmth and privacy found only in the Caribbean. While the other owners take their lavish toys to see and be seen in Monte Carlo, this 146′ megayacht nearly has the entire Caribbean to herself (and her fortunate few yacht charter customers).

Based in the warm waters of St. Lucia, this wonderful charter yacht and her crew are ready to share their rainforest island home with anyone intrigued by the slow-paced lifestyle of the Grenadine chain of the Caribbean.

Water-oriented travelers will love the toy inventory found aboard this 44.50 meter luxury megayacht. The list includes a 37′ Intrepid tender, two 18 foot tenders, a three-person waverunner, and towable toys such as a Banana and a kneeboard. For onshore activity, the yacht offers an assortment of beach games, along with volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, kites, and a football.

The onboard amenities are amazing – so impressive that the megayacht was selected as the 2008 “Best of the Best” by the luxury lifestyle magazine, Robb Report.

Super yacht PARTY GIRL 146 can accommodate 12 guests in 6 luxurious staterooms.
