Over  the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at a few of the 62 finalists  in contention to receive a coveted Neptune Trophy:


Luxury yacht PANTHALASSA under sail
PANTHALASSA

While it sometimes seems sail boat charters take a back seat to their motor yacht rivals, a privileged few will be fortunate enough to experience sail yacht PANTHALASSA under sail.

The 56 meter megayacht is nominated for Best Sailing Yacht in 45 meter and up category.

The vessel presents a fusion of contemporary living and the finest nautical heritage. Her interior is luxurious and features a rich contemporary decor, delightful to the eye and soothing to the soul. Sail mega yacht PANTHALASSA reflects an outstanding creative synthesis between Perini Navi and Foster & Partners. 


Natural daylight suffuses the interior of the superyacht, through the unique skylights that channel light from the sundeck and oversized portholes. The clean lines and uncluttered style of her interior offer contemporary living at its best. Central to the luxury yacht charter vessel, the gracefully flowing stairwell is wrapped in a translucent acrylic enclosure allowing light to flow through the main saloon.

A tactile and warm ambiance is created through the use of warm, natural organic tones and the combination of teak flooring with saddle leather wall paneling and granite surfaces.  Flexible multifunctional spaces offer a host of well conceived opportunities for social interaction or intimate gatherings. the dining table can become a coffee table , the library is positioned with views over open water for a feeling of deep relaxation and enhancing contemplation. The boardroom with its video conferencing facilities is also a perfect dining area and the sweeping sofa in the saloon becomes a bar.

The ability to conduct business while onboard makes this superyacht the perfect special event charter vessel, and an ideal candidate for MIPIM, the Cannes Film Festival, and the Monaco Grand Prix.  Electric glazed screens allow the entire main saloon , dining area, and wheelhouse to be divided or unified into a one large living space.

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 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.

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.”

British Designers Takes Megayacht Interiors to New Heights of Fashion

Posted on

1800yachtcharters.com presents Redman Whiteley Dixon - RWD - interior designers on superyachts

It’s been said the goal of interior design is to produce a harmonious whole in which the architecture, function, and visual aspects of the interior are unified, pleasing to mind and body, and appropriate to the activities to be pursued there.

In the superyacht industry, the creative team at Redman Whiteley Dixon has hit this goal time and time again. 

Started in 1993, the UK-based designers first worked on sailing yacht interiors.  As more and more naval architects and yacht owners took notice; the company was able to expand its portfolio to include motor yachts as well. 

Some of the world’s most prestigious, newest and largest yachts now display interiors designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD). 

Of particular note are several luxury mega yacht charter vessels launched in the past 2 years, such as 62 meter BATON ROUGE, 62 meter ICON, 60 metre ANDREAS L, and 57 meter TWIZZLE

One vessel in the 1-800 Yacht Charters fleet, 58 meter KOKOMO, was recently selected as the 2010 Best Sailing Yacht over 40 meters by the International Superyacht Society.

The studio is proud of its “open door, open plan” style.  Designers work in a relaxed yet focused environment, unrestricted by a single, set house style.

RWD handles all aspects of interior and exterior yacht design – from 10 meter tenders to 160 meter yachts.

Designer of Mega Yacht Charter Vessels Launches Child Cancer Fund

Posted on

Ed Dubois, daughter Minna, and wife, Honor, and Dubois Child Cancer Fund DCCF

 
Normally, you associate the name, “Ed Dubois” with the launching of a luxury mega yacht charter vessel. This month, Dubois, one of the world’s leading yacht designers, launched his greatest project to date – a cancer fund for children.
 
The Dubois Child Cancer Fund (DCCF) has been has been created in conjunction with Sparks, a charity formed by European sports superstars to funds medical research into childhood diseases.

Dubois Child Cancer Fund - DCCF  - Ed Dubois Naval Architects Ltd.

We first profiled Dubois in May when a handful of the designers yachts swept the World Superyacht Awards.   Some of the world’s largest yachts, especially luxury sailing charter vessels like TWIZZLEKOKOMO, and  RED DRAGON trace their pedigree to the studio of Dubois Naval Architects Ltd.


The aim of the DCCF is to increase the survival rate for infants and young children with neuroblastoma.  Researchers are optimistic this goal can be reached, and site as proof the survival rate for childhood leukemia, which has increased over the last twenty years from 10% to 90% due to increased funding.  For Ed and his wife, Honor, the mission to find a cure for childhood cancer hits close to home.  “Most people who organize charitable donations have a good reason to do so,” explains Ed Dubois.  “In our case, our second daughter, Minna, was diagnosed with the rare form of childhood cancer – neuroblastoma – in July 2005. Her chances of survival, statistically, were about 40%.
 
Six years after her initial diagnosis, doctors report Minna is doing well, as her chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments have been effective.

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.
