While there are numerous awards for megayacht designers and builders of the largest luxury yacht charter vessels, the crews of these floating works were often overlooked – until now.
A new competition has been organized by yacht management company, Krystal Yachts, and the search is on for the world’s best yacht crewmembers.
Supercrew 2012 is designed to allow superyacht captains to recognize outstanding members in their employ. Presented quarterly, and based on the exclusive nominations of captains, the award goes to the individual that best demonstrates the qualities of ability, attitude and going the extra mile.
Each quarter a panel of judges will determine the winner. The winner will receive an engraved iPad and be included on the guest lists of all future Krystal Yachts events.
The competition is open to professional crew members who work on any luxury yacht.
Nominations for Supercrew 2012 open in January, 2012.
Come experience the service of a highly-trained, professional crew on your own yachting holiday. Contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters specialists at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ for further vacation details.
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.

Enthusiasts of Bahama yacht charters say “It’s Better in the Bahamas.” The waters warm with the summer sun. The white sand beaches stretch from here to the horizon.
Gold? Did someone say gold? Of course, a great summer special rate on a Bahama yacht charter makes it even better, and motor yacht Golden Times is ready to oblige. Based in Nassau this summer, luxury motoryacht Golden Times is offering a deep discount on a mega yacht charter vacation in June or July.
A 10 night holiday is now priced at $33,500 for a family of 6 to 7, or a group of friends. (This is a savings of $8,600 on mega yacht Golden Times’ standard summer rate.)
This 94’ Hargrave motoryacht was built in 2001 and is maintained to the highest standards of safety, comfort, and appearance.
Her main salon is well-equipped for audio visual entertainment. With a comfortable arrangement of sofas both to port and starboard, plenty of guests can gather for movies in front of the large flat screen TV. The formal dining salon is separated from the salon ever-so-slightly by granite-topped cabinetry of light cherry wood and maple inlay.
Accommodations are provided in 3 guest cabins. The Master Stateroom is below amidships and has a King bed and en suite head with adjoining central shower for his and her use. Plenty of closet and drawer space is reserved for charter guests. There is a large flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player.
The VIP Stateroom is situated below amidships to port side with a Queen bed and en suite head with shower. There is a 13” TV with DVD player.
The Twin Stateroom is below amidships to starboard side with two twin beds and one Pullman plus en suite head with shower. It is also equipped with a 13” TV with DVD player.
Of course, Bahama yacht charters are all about the views, the sun, and the sea. On the skylounge deck, a couple may have a cocktail at the bar while enjoying the panoramic view or choose to entertain in a more cozy setting with an additional TV here as well. Leading out to the sundeck, there are teak chaise lounges for reading and relaxing, or there are comfortable sunpads for soaking up the Bahamian sun’s rays. The Jacuzzi may be inviting during the day or for a romantic evening under the stars.
Almost forgot to mention the watertoys! What would a yacht charter holiday be without some fun in the surf? Her extensive toy list includes a 27’ Boston Whaler sport tender with twin 225 horsepower Mercury engines (perfect for some quick exploration of the nearby coves and inlets), a second tender – a 16’ Novurania with 90 horsepower (good for wakeboarding, waterskiing, etc.), snorkel gear, a Laser sailboat, and extensive fishing gear. The water in the Bahamas is tropical, clean, clear, and absolutely magical!
Captain Jay and Chief Stewardess Breanna return in June as newlyweds. They are joined by award-winning chef, Jeff Ciucevich.
Come enjoy a fabulous mega yacht charter experience with a fun, professional crew in the uncrowded and unspoiled islands of the Bahamas.

All doubts were erased about designer once the project was completed. Firstly, motor yacht EXUMA is award-winning. She earned the Motoryacht of the Year at the World Superyacht Awards 2011. Secondly, the 50 meter poweryacht was also named Best Displacement Motoryacht under 500 gross tons. Her builder? The Perini Navi Group, typically known for sailing yachts.
The yacht accommodates 8 to 9 guests, and she is currently in Tahiti. She is available for charter until early August. After some use by her owner, she will again be available from mid September to late October in Fiji.
Exuma has a very low draft. She can access anchorages too shallow for most large yachts. Moreover, her shallow draft enables her to explore the reefs of French Polynesia.
Unique onboard toys include a Hovercraft, underwater Seabob scooter, an electric moped, and Amphibious jeep. Unique, indeed!
In conclusion, are you looking for an unforgettable vacation experience? Are you interested in a unique vacation destination this summer? Come explore French Polynesia on a yacht.

As it is with automobiles, the same range of sophistication also is seen in the megayacht market. While, high-end US-built Trinity yacht charter vessels are drop-dead gorgeous, for example, purists will point to the century-old Dutch yards that build the Rolls-Royce of the yachting world – the Feadship yacht charter vessels.
One of the finest modern Feadships was recently on display last week in the Caribbean, during the annual charter broker gathering in Antigua – a prelude to the Caribbean winter/spring charter season. Motor yacht HARLE first hit the charter market in 2007. The team at 1-800-YACHT CHARTERS was among the very first to inspect this yacht and interview her crew as she began her maiden charter season from the Miami Beach marina in South Florida.
Fast-forward 5 years, and Feadship yacht HARLE is still making waves and drawing rave reviews in the industry. During the Antigua showcase, M/Y HARLE and her crew earned the following awards:
She is priced at $225,000 per week, and yacht HARLE accommodates up to 12 guests.
