Here’s an opportunity to stretch a week-long vacation into a 10 night escape without paying one extra penny.

The 137′  Palmer Johnson motor yacht SYRENKA is offering 10 days for the price of 7, from now through the end of April, 2012 in the Caribbean.

The weekly rate is $85,000 plus running expenses.

Launched as motor yacht LADY JENN in 1984, the yacht’s new owner just completed a major refit and the four-deck, 137-foot Palmer Johnson, now named motor yacht SYRENKA looks better than new.

This extremely popular luxury yacht charter vessel is now appointed with a refreshingly comfortable new interior featuring supple leathers and Ralph Lauren soft furnishings in shades of blue, white, ivory, and brown. Other enhancements include extra-wide passageways, an elevator, and wheelchair accessibility on three decks. A wheelchair is also available onboard.

On the main deck, an inviting conversation area leads forward to the dining salon with seating for ten guests at an oval table. One deck up, the spacious sky lounge serves as the yacht’s central gathering spot. The 50” flat panel TV in the lounge is surrounded by a large, circular settee with seating for 10, with additional seating in the aft ringed by oversized viewing windows.  Sliding glass doors open to the guest deck with shaded settees and another large table for all’aperto (outdoor) dining.

Adjacent to the master suite is a smaller cabin with a small double bed. Four additional ensuite staterooms are located on the lower deck: a VIP suite with queen bed, two additional queen staterooms, and one twin-bedded stateroom.

Blazing Fast Tender Added to Yacht Double Down Watertoy Inventory

Posted on

Our Monegasque friend, James Graham-Cloete of Thompson Westwood and White Yachts, managers of motor yacht DOUBLE DOWN, dropped us an email last week.  Knowing we’re big fans of this 65 meter Codecasa and her amazing captain, Charles Dugas-Standish, James seemed excited to share the news about the superyacht and her newest watertoy.

We were certainly intrigued, as a multi-repeat client of ours enjoyed 10 days exploring Greece onboard this spectacular yacht and raved about the vessel’s condition, amenities, and the crew’s outstanding silver-service.

“DOUBLE DOWN has a magnificent new towed tender for the Mediterranean season – a 42ft (12.8m) MTI with centre console and 4 x 300 HP engines,” wrote James.

“Wow!” we emailed in response. “What year and what does she look like?”

James replied, “She is in fact a 2015. Silver with black highlights on the hull. Black Mercury outboards. White radar dome is now painted grey.”

James was correct – we ARE excited!   Performance-style tenders have replaced on-deck Jacuzzi tubs as the “must-have” amenity for many of our private luxury yacht charter clients.   The days of hopping in the “dinghy” are long gone.  As one of our clients explained to us, “I don’t pull up with my wife to Joe’s Stone Crab restaurant on South Beach in a Kia, so why would I come ashore in St. Tropez in an inflatable RIB tender?”

The MTI V-42 center console tender added to the stable of watertoys onboard Codecasa motor yacht DOUBLE DOWN is simply a beast.  With quad 300hp power, this 42 ft tender can cruise at 40mph, and hit top speeds in excess of 70mph. The tender’s unique hull design yields straight, stable handling at all speeds.

Jana Sheeder, our company President, explains why this matters:

“A fast tender is an important component of a private yacht charter vacation, especially in remote areas, like the Ionian islands of Greece. If the seas get rough while taking charter guests sightseeing, the MTI V-42 design keeps the bow high in both head and following seas, and the tender can easily knock down big swells.  In simple terms, this means a dry ride in extreme conditions.”    

Indeed ride and performance are important, but so are luxurious amenities and comfort.  The seats are quite comfy for long-range cruising with the double-wide forward lounge the most comfortable.  Speakers seem to be everywhere on this tender, so listening to your favorite tunes is a breeze, even with the engines at full throttle.

Captain Charles and his crew of 17 are currently enjoying yacht DOUBLE DOWN in the summer Monaco yacht charter season.  To kick off the season, the yacht secured a berth in Monaco at the Monaco Yacht Club for client who were interested in a Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter.  They are on the ball! With 8 large guest staterooms, this 65 meter superyacht boasts excellent flexibility for guest sleeping arrangements.

Posted on

Delta Marine, a US-based shipbuilder, has announced the launch of its latest custom superyacht, motor yacht ARIANNA.  Designed and engineered by the Delta Design Group, motor yacht ARIANNA is said to be the world’s largest all composite 50 meter full-displacement motoryacht.Launched in April 2012, M/Y ARIANNA, formerly Project 164041, has more than 780 gross tons ITC, a beam of nearly 34 feet, and over 7,500 square feet of living area, giving her more interior volume than any other yacht her length.

The Delta Design Group was commissioned by the yacht owner to create a Polynesian-inspired interior that is elegant, comfortable, and suitable for a family at home on the seas. The interior design is adorned with tropical hardwoods including Mascassar ebony, Wenge, and Koa. Balinese inspired touches such as a solid slab dining table and colorful blown glass lighting complete the design elements. Other unique details include inlaid silk carpets, organic fabrics, woven leather, and natural stone.

One design element worthy of mention is the large master stateroom on the upper deck.  This cabin features a lounge as well as a private outdoor deck and dining area.  Forward on the main deck, where the master stateroom is traditionally located, is a fully-equipped gym with a sauna, and a private office.

Per 1-800 Yacht Charters President, Jana Sheeder:

It is exciting to welcome another Mediterranean yacht charter vessel into our fleet. Her blown glass lighting, organic fabrics throughout, and sauna are special touches for a spectacular superyacht.

Roomy external seating areas are perfect for all’aperto dining or lounging in the sun. There is a large aft seating area on the main deck and the sun deck features a bathroom, hot tub, sun chairs, and a large island-style bar. Guests can escape the sun under a lightweight carbon fiber bimini cover.

An elevator provides access to all four decks.

Superyacht Offers Deep Discount for Off-Season Italy Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

They say, “Good things come to those who wait.”  In the case of #Benetti yacht #ULYSSES, a more timely saying is, “You snooze…you lose!”

To encourage some pre-season charters before the summer crowds arrive in the Mediterranean, 1-800 Yacht Charters has announced deep discounts in the weekly charter rate for Super yacht ULYSSES, now (April) through May, 2016 in Italy, #Monaco, and the South of France.

The charter rate has been slashed from €255,000 per week down to €200,000 per week – a savings of 22%.

Superyacht Ulysses Benetti with black hull

With her black hull and cool beige superstructure, the 183 foot Italian Benetti superyacht is imposing is size, but inviting in layout and amenities. Indeed, her exterior is modern and unique in design, while her interior by Stefano Natucci is simply majestic. Classical decorations include marble artworks, chandeliers and rare pictures, in a style that melds Renaissance and Baroque, with a few subtle touches of Gothic Art.

Entering the saloon, you can admire an antique grand piano hand-crafted by Steinway & Sons over 100 years ago. Don’t worry if no one in your charter party knows how to play – the piano has been fitted with a digital controller,  allowing it to play Tchaikovsky, Chopin, or even a more contemporary tune.
