3 LUXURY YACHTS TO CHARTER AND BUY

Posted on

HOW MUCH DOES SHE COST? 

Surprisingly, this question often comes up when our clients return from a memorable luxury yacht charter vacation.

Charter clients seem mesmerized by The Superyacht Experience. We’re thrilled!  : )   Indeed, it’s hard to imagine any other vacation on par with yachting.  It’s an experience where the superyacht serves as a platform for an eco-friendly adventure. Most of all, it’s a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

 

A BRIDGE TOO FAR?

But is it a “bridge too far” to transition from luxury yacht charter guest to superyacht owner?  Actually, it’s fairly common for charterers to become superyacht owners.

Some people purchase a specific automobile make and model after renting one for a long trip.  They like how the car looks and handles.  Of course, they celebrate how the vehicle whisked them to a new destination, in style and comfort.

Similarly, charterers become enthralled with the creature comforts of a yacht.  Certainly, the idea of arriving in an exotic destination on a floating villa is pretty darn appealing.

From there, the intrigue and hunger continue to grow.  After all, why limit your family’s enjoyment of cruising to just one or two weeks a year?

The yachting lifestyle is addicting!

THREE SUPERYACHTS FOR SALE AND CHARTER

Let’s take a look at three, popular superyacht charter vessels currently available for hire, and also available for purchase.

 

QUANTUM OF WHA???

We never quite understood the meaning of Quantum of Solace as the title of the James Bond film.  It doesn’t matter – naming superyachts in homage to Bond films is very popular.  There are many James Bond boats as we like to call them. For instance, Octopussy, Skyfall, Casino Royale, and others.

There is even a superyacht named after the 2008 Bond film, Motoryacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE.  The 72.6m superyacht was built in 2012 and refit in 2017.  Here’s our description of the yacht on our charter website.

“Award-winning Proteksan Turquoise motor yacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE is noteworthy for a few reasons. Specifically, her spectacular lines and enormous volume.  Charterers enjoy many entertainment and relaxation areas.  For instance, her salons, bars, decks, and terraces.  She is a Turkish build.  The yacht features both interior and exterior design by H2 Yacht Design.  QUANTUM OF SOLACE accommodates up to 12 guests in seven beautiful cabins.”

Her weekly charter rate is €560,000.

Her listed purchase price is $58,000,000.

 

  

A MASTER NUMBER

Finally, a yacht with a name we can understand!  Well…not really.  We cheated and looked up the meaning.  In numerology, the number 11 is considered a master number, and it signifies enlightenment.  If you pair the number with itself, 11.11, it represents a message from the universe to become aware.

Cosmically, we’ve got a ways to go. However, even we’re aware that Benetti yacht 11.11 is stunning.  Here’s a little history from our website on how this yacht came to be.

Benetti yacht 11.11 is a winner from the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.  She is only the second plumb-bowed boat built by the fabled Italian yard.  This beautiful lady was originally commissioned to look like a Russian Czar’s palace.  Her first owner walked away when the yacht was just 40% complete.  A new owner stepped in to transform the yacht into an award-winning monochromatic masterpiece.  What a fortunate owner!  The current trend is to build yachts with hard, minimalistic edges.  This yacht’s main living areas onboard yacht 11.11 offer suppleness and comfort.”

 

Here is a link to our video by company President, Jana Sheeder, for superyacht 11-11.  Enjoy!

The weekly charter rate is €650,000.

The listed purchase price is €59,500,000.

 

 

NINTH ROCK FROM THE SUN

Back in grade school, we were taught Pluto is the ninth planet in the solar system. Now, it’s referred to as a dwarf planet.  It’s ok, Pluto – we‘ll still call you the ninth planet!

Avoiding the naming controversy is the 73.2-meter superyacht PLANET NINE.  Forget outer space – there’s plenty to explore on earth.  This yacht is built for ocean adventure.  Our website notes describe this superyacht as a

“…Long-range high-quality luxury explorer yacht with serious go anywhere sea keeping characteristics, heavy build specification and suitable for sailing in ice conditions in accordance with its class notation. Dynamic positioning and suitability for global cruising. Commercially approved helideck suitable for an Augusta Grande dimensionally or larger helicopter in weight, up to 8 tons, with enclosed below-deck hangar.”

The weekly charter rate is €650,000.

The listed purchase price is €85,000,000.

Destination Italy | Where Is Positano?

Posted on

Photograph of Positano in Italy. Photo taken from up on the hill.  The mountain to the left is covered in multicolored houses that are on a slant overlooking the ocean.  The bay is filled with sailboats and motoryachts at anchor. There is a pink cloud in the background, as if the photo was taken at sunset.

Amalfi Coast – Positano – Yacht Charter Italy

Caribbean yacht charter vacations are popular to American tourists.  However, the Italian coastline draws far more visitors annually. This is for both land and sea holidays.

The most famous stretch of coastline in Italy is the Amalfi Coast. It stretches south from the peninsula of Sorrento.  Here you will find multiple features. For instance, quaint fishing villages along a ragged-mountain cliffline, bordered by the clear, azure sea.

Amalfi Coast yacht charters take place along the northern end of the Bay of Naples.  They often encompass the volcanic island of Ischia. Even more often, they include nearby Capri.

A popular destination while enjoying an Italy yacht charter is the town of Positano.   Many flock here. For example, artists, rock stars, actors, and novelists have visited for decades. Here, you can climb the fabled narrow streets to visit one of the local designer showrooms and elegant boutiques, where clothes and sandals are made to order.

The city of Positano, Italy is located in the province of Salerno, and the region of Campania.  The location coordinates on a map are:  40° 38?N 14°29?E Positano is 17km (10 miles) west of Amalfi; 51km (101 miles) west of Salerno; and 56km (35 miles) southeast of Naples.

The closest airport, suitable for private jets and regional commercial carriers is the Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport (IATA: QSR, ICAO: LIRI), located in the municipality of Pontecagnano Faiano.

 Many spectacular yachts will be cruising the Amalfi Coast. One impressive and elegant example is motoryacht CHECKMATE, a Benetti luxury yacht in the charter market.

HOW TO RENT A YACHT IN ITALY

Considering a getaway to Italy and the Amalfi Coast this summer?  The most beautiful views are gained by sea – from the deck of your own private charter yacht.  Here, you can relax far away from the tourists and the traffic and marvel as the pastel colors of the buildings dance in the setting sun…

Fab Four The Inspiration For Amels Yacht Here Comes The Sun Owner

Posted on

Photograph of motoryacht underway. Hull of yacht is beige. Superstructure is white. Waves are lapping at the bottom of the yacht.

 

 

When it comes to naming a superyacht, the sources of inspiration seem limitless.

WHAT IS IN A SUPERYACHT NAME?

Many owners select the name of their spouse or their children.  Others opt for themes, such as romance and affection.  Of course, movie-themed names remain popular as well (e.g.  John and Jeanette Staluppi and their James Bond yacht selection including DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, CASINO ROYALE, and Benetti yacht SPECTRE, Project FB269.

 

HERE COMES THE SUN

The multi-yacht owner of 83-meter Amels motor yacht HERE COMES THE SUN, has an inspiration. In specific, it is music.  It is somewhat obvious to most Baby Boomers. Obviously, songs by The Beatles.

The owner had two other yachts.  First, the 47-meter Heesen yacht LET IT BE.    Second, the 65-meter Amels Limited Editions 212 yacht IMAGINE (now INFINITE SHADES).

 

THE SUN IS RIGHT

In a way, the name seems entirely appropriate.  This yacht is a behemoth.  Additionally, she seems to be the size of the sun. In specific, in silhouette against the evening skyline.  She is the new flagship of the fabled Dutch yard.  In addition, the first Amels Limited Editions 272.  The yacht comes in at 2827 gross tons, more than the 95-meter Lurssen yacht KISMET (2700GT).

Would you like a closer look at the Andre Winch-designed interiors?  Also, Tim Heywood exteriors or superyacht HERE COMES THE SUN?  Click https://youtu.be/yY2NS9-b6sU to enjoy our short video production of this spectacular luxury yacht charter vessel.
