28 Passenger Superyacht To Make St. Martin Yacht Charter Debut This Winter

Posted on

The 82.50 meter motor yacht O’MEGA, one of the very few private luxury yacht charter vessels in the world with the capacity for over 12  guests, is heading to the Caribbean for the very first time this winter.

Re-launched in 2004 after a complete remodel from a near-bare hull, super yacht O’MEGA underwent a major refit in 2009, and has had continuous upgrades every year since.  With an excellent crew-to-guest ratio, there are 30 crewmembers onboard to attend to 28 guests in 14 guest staterooms.

While in the Caribbean from early December, 2016 through April 2017, her weekly charter rate is  €525,000 + running expenses.  There is a two week minimum fee for charters during Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The only other +12 passenger superyacht considering relocation to the Caribbean for the winter is the 36 passenger motor yacht CHRISTINA O, as her owner has expressed interest in the emerging Cuba yacht charter marketplace (now that travel restrictions between the governments of the United States and Cuba have been eased).

With so few large-capacity yachts in the Caribbean this winter, we expect strong demand for both of these vessels in the area of St. Martin, particularly for St Barts yacht charter clients who invade the small island to celebrate the New Year.

1-800 Yacht Charters has dozens of luxury yachts available in the Caribbean this winter.  Let us Deliver the Superyacht Experience to you and your family and friends this winter.  For more information on yacht charter vessels and destinations, email the yacht charter professionals at info@1800yachtcharters.com

Famous Superyacht Owner Says He Makes Stupid Money

Posted on

Johnny Depp vanity fair stupid money 300 million dollars luxury sailing yacht charter vajoliroja

A well known owner of a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel charges nearly €100,000 per week to rent his yacht, but it is his day job that brings him vast sums of money.

Actor Johnny Depp, owner of the 156′ motor yacht VAJOLIROJA, opens up about his staggering paychecks in the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he admits in the magazine article.  “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

Depp has shot to the top of the list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, thanks to the stellar success of Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.   While Depp is mum on the size of his Pirates “ransom,” a recent report puts his total take in the $300 million range, due to a gross-profit-sharing deal brokered with Disney. To date, the four-film franchise has tallied $3.7 billion in worldwide receipts, and Depp is slated to star in a 5th installment.

It’s believed Depp’s passion for the sea, and his purchase of a mega yacht charter vessel stems from his years of filming the Pirates movies in exotic locales such as the Bahamas.  His yacht, motor yacht VaJoLiRoJa — the boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack — is a 156 foot yacht of distinctive character, inspired by the classic gentleman’s yachts of the 1930’s.
