Benetti Vision 145 Selects Bahamas Yacht Charter Arena for Winter – luxury yacht charter

Posted on

Newly built Benetti motor yacht CHECKMATE, fresh from her inaugural stint in the summer 2013 Mediterranean yacht charter market, has arrived in Fort Lauderdale, in preparation for the upcoming winter season.
Unlike similar-sized yachts that relocate to the Caribbean to offer Virgin Island yacht charter vacations, M/Y CHECKMATE will be based in Nassau and seek Bahamas yacht charter bookings through May, 2014. Profile of yacht CHECKMATE, facing left. Yacht has black hull with white superstructure
Launched earlier this year in Italy, she is the 15th vessel built in the fabled shipyard’s Vision series of semi-custom yachts.  The Benetti Vision 145 yacht CHECKMATE  now joins the many Benetti yacht charter vessels currently in service, such as motor yacht MINE GAMES, and James Bond yacht, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER .

Five guest staterooms are available onboard, including a master cabin on the main deck, featuring a King bed, and ensuite baths featuring his and hers bathrooms. Below deck are four spacious cabins with accommodations for 8 additional passengers, plus two Pullman berths, suitable for small children.

The 45 meter yacht made her public American debut at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with newly-appointed Captain Phillip Nash onboard for the winter season.  At the conclusion of the show, the Italian superyacht repositioned to the Bahamas.  

Her owner then plans to send her north, next summer, to participate in the New England Martha’s Vineyard yacht charter market.   

Weekly rates begin at $200,000 per week, plus all expenses.

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…

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Per Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters

“Our yacht charter fleet heartily welcomes superyacht CHECKMATE as a beautiful addition for discriminating clientele. “

RATE

The inaugural rental rate for the summer 2012 season is $145,000.  This is a good value.  It is a rarity in the Med.  Most Med yachts price in Euros..

Italian Builder – New Fast Displacement Megayacht

Posted on

When it comes to yachting, the words, “Fast” and “Displacement” are rarely uttered in the same sentence.  In part, displacement yachts tend to be built heavier and wider, to achieve maximum comfort.  The tradeoff for this stability at sea has traditionally been speed.

However, one builder continues to throw convention to the wind.

Aerial view of a motoryacht underway.

Italy’s Benetti Yachts, has unveiled a third generation of fast yachts, rounding out an extensive range of vessels which currently includes class range semi-custom displacement vessels from 93′ to 145′, and custom-built megayachts starting at 45 meters.

The new Fast Displacement line of composite vessels built by Benetti in Viareggio, Italy includes two models — the Benetti F-140, first introduced in 2012, and the brand new Benetti F-125.  The new line Benetti F-125 is designed to be truly versatile, offering speed when needed, but at the same time fuel efficiency and comfort.

In a recent press release, Benetti CEO Vincenzo Poerio touted the new line: 

“Many of our clients have requested faster, more versatile, and efficient boats, while maintaining the same level of comfort and customization found in our existing yachts. The new Fast Displacement line is designed precisely in response to these requests, and it rounds out our current offering in the Class Range. We haven’t just created a new series; we have invested time and resources – combining the Benetti’s 140-years of experience in super yachts with the technological know-how of Azimut Benetti Group – to create a new way of heading out to sea.”

Comfort and luxurious European styling make Benetti yachts popular rental vessels.  Italian yacht charter customers often request Benetti yachts by name.

Some of the popular Benetti yacht charter vessels include:

Motor yacht SILVER ANGEL – designed specifically for extensive long-range cruising

 Motor yacht CHECKMATE  – a 2013 addition to the #Monaco yacht charter marketplace
 
Motor yacht DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER – the latest James Bond boat to honor the heralded film franchise
