New Superyacht Toy Not For Faint Of Heart | Luxury Yacht

Posted on

Just in time for the winter rental season, Trinity yacht charter vessel Motoryacht CARPE DIEM has added a new toy to her watersport equipment list – a Jetovator.”

Be warned – this toy is for designed strictly for adrenaline junkies!

The Jetovator is a water sports accessory that extends the ability of an existing personal watercraft (PWC). It redirects the water thrust from the propulsion unit of a waverunner or jetski along a forty foot hose to the Jetovator body. This water thrust is then used to propel and elevate the Jetovator up into the air…or down into the water!

The rider can also redirect the water thrust of the two front nozzles in order to maneuver the Jetovator in all directions (read between the lines – spin wildly in the air).The Jetovator can go vertical straight up to a dizzying 20-25 feet at speeds of up to 25 mph. For a wetter experience, you can take a nose-dive and actually cruise underwater (to approximately 4-5 feet deep).

A stalwart in the Bahamas yacht charter marketplace, the 191 foot Trinity motor yacht CARPE DIEM already hosts an extensive array of watertoys before adding the Jetovator to her inventory.  Other onboard recreational gear includes:
  • 7 meter Novurania Chase tender with 260 hp engine
  • 6.7 meter Nautica Landing Craft with 260 hp jet drive engine
  • 4 wave runners
  • Trampoline
  • Waterskis
  • Wakeboard
  • Snorkel gear
  • Six sets of SCUBA gear and compressor (for certified divers only)
  • Spin bike
  • Pull-up machine
  • Weight bench
  • Free weights
  • Kaleidescape entertainment system
  • iPod docking stations throughout interior and exterior of yacht
  • Xbox
  • Wii
Staying active with so many watertoys will certainly leave guests hungry for some great food.  Fortunately, the onboard menu is as extensive and exciting as the yacht’s watertoy list.  Peter Williams, the executive chef onboard Trinity yacht CARPE DIEM was kind enough to pass along some samples from his galley.  Email us today for a copy of them at info@1800yachtcharters.com

Showcased throughout the yacht are vintage fashion photographs, art deco antiques, and lavish furnishings.”

The Top Five Boat Names For 2017

Posted on

a page of names of boats written in fun fonts and colors

 

 

THE STORY

I saw an article last week about the top baby names for 2017. The story went on to speculate, “…if you’re searching for a baby name in 2017, you’ve got a big, exciting decision to make. Whether you’re after something that’s trendy or traditional, it can be challenging to wade through the thousands of possible names for your future baby.

I thought to myself, “What about boat names?” Surely, the proud new owner of a private luxury yacht charter vessel must experience similar excitement in deciding what to name his or her new floating palace.

Lo and behold, the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS), recently released their annual list of the Top Five Boat Names for 2017 [they actually list the top ten, but who cares about any top list after the first few winners].

For certain, each name reveals a little bit about the personality of the yacht’s owner.  So, from trendy to traditional, here is this year’s Top Five list of names:

 

THE LIST

  1. SERENITY – if ever a name captured the essence if a private yacht charter vacation, this is it.  Calm…quietude…ahhh…

Note – there are soooo many luxury yacht charter vessels with this name, we can barely keep them straight!  Four of them are currently listed on our site, including the popular Greek yacht charter catamaran SERENITY,  and we have NINE yachts with this name in our charter database!

 

  1. SEAS THE DAY – cute play on words for the famous Latin phrase, “Carpe diem.”

 

  1. ANDIAMO – this perennial favorite name means, “Let’s Go” in Italian.

 

  1. IRISH WAKE – I think we all know stories about the joy and celebration the Irish are said to have after the death of a beloved friend or family member.  Still, this one creeps me out a little bit for a boat’s name…
    1. FREEDOM – bold, powerful, and patriotic.  Common charter vessel name, including the 120 foot Virgin Island yacht charter motor yacht FREEDOM, and the massive 23 foot Benetti yacht charter vessel that shares the same name (ex motor yacht REVERIE)

Do you have a favorite boat name, perhaps for your own boat, or a luxury yacht charter vessel you saw at sea?  Share that name with us, and if there’s a short story about the name, we would love to hear it!  Email us your cute boat name at info@1800yachtcharters.com!
