Seems growing consumer demand to rent a private yacht in a unique destination has prompted another superyacht owner to relocate for the upcoming winter season.
On the heels of the recent announcement by the 64 meter Benetti motor yacht SILVER ANGEL to
relocate to the Indian Ocean, word comes that the 228-foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN will relocate to Antarctica this winter.
Motoryacht SHERAKHAN first visited Antarctica in 2010. Her return trip will be in January and February 2013, with two confirmed charters on the books. The superyacht will remain in Antarctica during March 2013 if there is additional charter interest. Another option the owner is considering is a relocation to Chile, Patagonia, or the Brazilian Amazon to accommodate requests for charters through April.
In May, the megayacht will travel to the Mediterranean for the summer 2013 charter season.
This custom-built 70 meter vessel is ideal for large families or corporate incentive charters, as she is able to accommodate as many as 26 guests. Amenities include a spa deck, an impressive two-level dining room, and an extra-large hot tub on the sun deck.
