Buon appetito – San Lorenzo Yacht TAKARA Adds New Chef to Crew

Posted on

THE NEWS

Bon appetit!  Motoryacht TAKARA will begin the 2017 Balearic Island yacht charter season with a new chef in the galley.

3 Chefs cutting into 2 wheels of cheese

 


“Available in the Balearic Islands, M/Y TAKARA begins (the) 2017 season with a new super experienced Chef in her crew,”
reports the yacht’s manager.  “Chef Daniel Wilbor begins a new professional venture on board…With over 10 years of experience  in the yachting industry he has already worked as a chef in 11 different yachts and has sailed all across the Atlantic Ocean! Born in Great Britain, he describes himself as a creative, competent and talented cooker with an special interest in Thai cuisine.”

She then gave us more information about him:  “He also has a wide repertoire and can produce excellent meals from Mediterranean to Japanese, Indian and Asian Fusion, or North American and English dishes, all to a very high standard. His style is fresh and innovative combining a respect for quality products and a good arsenal of both classical and modernist cooking techniques.”

Delicious, well-plated meals are integral to the overall Superyacht Experience, and it’s always good news when a chef like Daniel joins a professional superyacht team.

THE YACHT

The San Lorenzo 126 yacht TAKARA is one of our newest additions to the Ibiza yacht charter fleet. This is a brand new, 2016 model, 38 meters in length, with comfortable accommodations for 12 guests in 5 staterooms (1 Master, 1 VIP, 1 Double and 2 Twins – with a Pullman berth in each)

Chef Wilbor will be part of a 6 person crew.

 

IMPORTANT YACHTING INFORMATION TO KNOW

Motoryacht TAKARA is fully licensed to charter in Spain.  This is extremely important and often overlooked by charter brokers and charterers.  Without this special registration, a yacht cannot begin and end a charter in Spanish waters;  furthermore, local Spanish workers like massage therapists, are precluded from coming aboard and providing services for the charter guests.  Without having a Spanish yacht charter license, a superyacht needs to begin and end the charter in a remote location, like France, which adds wasted time and increased fuel costs to the overall charter.  That is not the Superyacht Experience we envision for our clients!

 

THE TOYS

  • Castoldi 4.87 meter main tender
  • Zodiac 4 meter second tender
  • 4 complete SCUBA diving sets (for certified divers only)
  • Wakeboard

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.

PRINCESS – Lady or Yacht?

When we think of a “Princess,” we often envision a beautiful young lady with charm, grace, and the finest heritage.  The same holds true in the world of yachting. 

UK-based Princess Yachts has become synonymous with that which is the finest in design of luxury yacht charter vessels.

 

PRINCESS YACHTS

The company has a strict dedication to the highest standards of design and craftsmanship. This British builder has become one of the most respected names in the marine industry.  They offer flybridge models from 42 to 90 feet.  In addition, they build mega yacht charter vessels from  32 to 40 meters.  

 

WHAT MAKES HER SPECIAL

The 72 model displays every characteristic that defines a Princess: clean flowing lines, elegant styling, and effortless power swelling to a cruising speed of 34 knots.

The Princess 72 Motor Yacht perfectly combines the comfort and elegance of a motor yacht with the performance of a sports cruiser, making her a most desirable yacht for hire.

HOW TO BOOK A YACHT CHARTER FOR A WEEK

Come spend a week on a Princess. The 2011 motor yacht FLOREVA 2 is available in Rosas, Spain.  The yacht accommodates 8 guests and is priced at €36,000 per week, plus expenses.  Contact our consultants HERE for reservation details.
