Yas Island Marina at Abu Dhabi

The excitement of Formula 1 racing comes to Abu Dhabi this month, and the best seat in the house is undoubtedly onboard the private luxury yacht MOGAMBO.

Now moored at Yas Marina, directly adjacent to the race course, the 74m Nobiskrug yacht MOGAMBO is available for an Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yacht Charter.  Her weekly rental rate is $650,000, plus running expenses.  A 5-night minimum reservation is required, spanning the actual race dates of November 25-27.

Built in 2012, super yacht MOGAMBO looks better than ever, having undergone a partial refit.  She’s been fully repainted, and he now has a 7th cabin for added flexibility for charter guests and/or occasional workers.  The sundeck Jacuzzi has been significantly enlarged, and the gym has been redesigned.

  • Exterior cinema viewing and indoor gym on sun deck
  • Elevator from lower deck to bridge deck
  • Large deck and interior spaces
  • Special amenities; such as hair/beauty salon and massage room
  • Large floor to ceiling windows
  • 7th cabin for occasional workers

The 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX is the Middle East’s biggest international sporting event and the only twilight race on the F1® calendar.  The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is just one of two Formula 1 circuit races that directly encompass a marina where guests can enjoy the action from the deck of a superyacht.  The other is Monaco.  Grand Prix yacht charter vacations in Monaco are famous for their celebrity parties and many racing sponsors hire yachts to serve as private, secure viewing platforms. Much of the course in the Abu Dhabi race hugs the Yas Marina Circuit and viewing the action from a yacht is unobstructed by bleachers or buildings.

Catch all the action from the deck of your own private yacht charter vessel, from 1-800 Yacht Charters. Text GRAND PRIX YACHT CHARTER to 305-720-7245 for more information.  See you on the Circuit!

Formula One Miami Grand Prix Yachting?

Posted on

F1 RACING COMES TO MIAMI?

Formula 1 is here.  Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines….and captains, prepare to cast off!

Formula One is scouting Miami, Florida as a site for a Grand Prix race.  F1, or FIA Formula One World Championship, is the foremost auto racing league on the planet.  Envision Miami – dozens of superyachts lining the course.  Thousands of thrilled spectators crowd luxury yacht decks to see the action.

Four race cars on a winding street beside the ocean. Lalique and Black Label banners behind the cars as they whiz by.

 

BACKGROUND

Per the Miami Herald, F1 execs met with mayor and government officials in November in Miami.  They discussed racing logistics for an annual event along Biscayne Bay, downtown Miami.

Events Director for city of Miami, Vicente Betancourt, says the goal is to add Miami to the Formula 1 season in 2020. “It’s like the Super Bowl of auto racing,” said Betancourt. “Hopefully we can make it happen.”

WHO WILL ANNOUNCE THE RACE?

Will the amazing Michael Buffer possibly be the announcer for a Miami Grand Prix Formula One race?

 

WHO WILL DRIVE RACE CARS?

Wouldn’t you love to see professional race car drivers like Lewis Hamilton, Bottas, Vettel, Raikkonen, or Verstappen driving?  High-tech Mercedes, Ferraris, Alfa Romeos, and Maseratis on the Sunny downtown Miami streets?

What a wonderful boost for the South Florida economy.  A Grand Prix Formula One race could provide corporate sponsorships from such companies as Amazon.  (Jeff Bezos, graduated high school in Miami, in the same class as our company President, Jana Sheeder). Other sponsors to include:

 

GROWING THE GLOBAL AUDIENCE

From April through November, the Formula One’s series is comprised of 20 races in cities around the world. Those cities include Singapore, Budapest, Sao Paulo, Dubai, and Monaco.   There are 15 road courses and five courses laid out on city streets.

Formula 1 has new ownership (Liberty Media) and looks to expand its U.S. presence.  F1 has a massive fan base across the globe; however, it lags behind other sports in the United States, like football, basketball, and NASCAR.  Soccer is as popular as F1 racing. The only United States Grand Prix race is in Austin, Texas right now. Chase Carey, Liberty Media’s CEO of the Formula 1 Group, says he wants another race in America.  An event in Miami, or possibly Las Vegas or New York, has been publicly discussed.

Carey wants to see F1 grab a foothold in “destination cities” like New York, Los Angeles, Miami, or Las Vegas. This would create a week-long celebration capable of attracting people from all over the world.

 

WHY MIAMI?

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters believes Miami is a natural fit for a F1 event.

“Of all the races held annually by F1, the two premier events are staged in Monaco and Abu Dhabi,” says Sheeder.  “Both locations have courses along the waterfront, and thousands of spectators enjoy the race and the festivities from the decks of dozens of luxury yachts.  The Miami Grand Prix would duplicate that unique setting, as the course would pass through downtown Miami, along our beautiful waterfront area – and we have many superyachts that already make South Florida their home port.”

According to AutoGuide.com, Formula One filed on November 1st for a new trademark on a race event in Miami (as well as Las Vegas and New York). The next day, Sean Bratches, Formula One’s director of commercial operations, came to Miami, with his track engineers, and met with Mayor Francis Suarez and checked  out the city streets near the downtown area, along the waterfront. Betancourt, who has been in communications with F1 since May said nothing was finalized. “We’ve got to see if it works and what it would cost them to actually bring it out. I think the ball is pretty much in their court.”

MIAMI BACKGROUND

Sheeder points out the idea of a major road race and spectator yachts is not new for the city. In the 1980’s, the Miami Grand Prix was a major annual event (but not affiliated with the F1 series).

“Private luxury yacht charter vessels would line up, stern-to the seawall in the area that is now the Bayside Marketplace, and spectators would watch the race from the deck of their superyachts. In the evening, many of the yachts would host private parties for the charterers, as well as the owners, drivers, and corporate sponsors of the racing teams.”


MOVE OVER, MONACO!

Sheeder is optimistic a new F1 week-long race event will become a marquee attraction for South Florida.

“Assuming the financing and logistics make sense for Formula One, a corporate hospitality Miami Grand Prix  yacht charter could easily rival the excitement of a Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter or an Abu Dhabi yacht charter.  Yes, Monaco has the edge thanks to many decades of exposure, but Miami could make a big splash.  We have the best weather, and the largest inventory of luxury yacht charter vessels anywhere in the world.  Throw in the sexy appeal of nearby South Beach with world-famous hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, and celebrities, and Miami is a world-class big-event town.”

Where else can you go to an upscale event, wearing little more than sandals and a bathing suit, where the best “seat” in the house is in an on deck Jacuzzi on a private luxury yacht???

===========================

Attending a Grand Prix event on a yacht is the ultimate in corporate hospitality.  Come experience the excitement and glamour of Formula 1 racing in 2018.  For more information about a Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter, or to rent a yacht for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix or for any other F1 race, contact us at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ TODAY.

Nomadic Chef Joins Heesen Yacht Aurelia for Balearic Island Yacht Charter Season

Posted on

Yacht Charter Chef Jason Carruthers

Yacht Charter Chef Carruthers

Freelance chef  Jason Carruthers has joined the crew onboard the 37 meter Formula 1 inspired motor yacht AURELIA for the upcoming Balearic Island yacht charter season.  Jason has spent the last 15 years traveling and honing his culinary skills, both on land an onboard private yacht charter vessels. His travels have helped him develop an extensive knowledge of international cuisine.  Now living in Palma Mallorca, Carruthers joins the 6-person yacht charter crew on board the sleek superyacht, whose home port is also Palma.
Carruthers explains how he developed his talents for cooking:

“As a private chef I have worked on land and water and cooked in some incredibly remote places where sourcing ingredients can be a daily challenge.  With extensive catering and consulting throughout Europe and working with chefs of all origins, I have been able to absorb a great knowledge of international cuisine.”

Aside from his culinary talents, Carruthers also holds an endorsement in Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (SCTW Maritme), as well as certificates in hygiene, and firefighting, and sea survival.

YACHT CHARTER COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

As he has previously worked on yachts, Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters sees Carruthers as a natural fit to serving onboard motor yacht Aurelia – one of her most popular Balearic Island yacht charter vessels.

“Sometimes, chefs with limited experience on a yacht have difficulty with the transition from working in a restaurant or private home to serving onboard a superyacht,” says Sheeder.  “Jason has a solid boating background, having served as both a chef and deckhand on motor yacht HUSH [38m] and motor yacht Osiana [25m].  He can drive a tender, take a turn on watch, and assist with safety issues.”

 

THE YACHT

Jason’s new home at sea, Heesen yacht Aurelia (priced from €105,000 per week), is well-known in the Balearics.

SPAIN YACHT CHARTER LICENSE

Yacht charters in Spain require the vessel secure a Spanish charter license in order to begin an conclude charters within Spanish waters.  Possessing this license gives Aurelia a distinct advantage over other charter vessels.  Without this license, a yacht can either start or end a charter in Spain – but it cannot do both. This forces unlicensed yachts to spend part of the charter period in far-away France – adding additional fuel costs to the charter customer’s tab (not to mention the loss of precious charter time in Spain).

YACHT ACCOMMODATIONS AND DETAILS

Aurelia offers accommodations for eight guests in four staterooms.  With her non-traditional paint scheme inspired by Formula 1 racing team colors, the yacht is instantly recognizable.  And just like a F-1 race car, this yacht is fast – hitting speeds of over 30 knots, while similar-sized motoryachts cruise at no more than 12-15 knots.  Charting a yacht with such impressive speed capabilities means Balearic island yacht charter clients can explore the entire chain of islands – from Ibiza to Mallorca, within a week-long getaway.

Secure Berth Before Motoryacht Rental

Posted on

MOTORYACHT CHARTER TIME IS NOW

The rush is on to book a last minute Monaco Grand Prix yacht!

 

SPECIAL EVENTS

As the dates draw closer for Europe’s premier Formula 1 Grand Prix and similar special events such as the Cannes Film Festival, charter customers are cautioned to first concentrate on where they will dock their rental yacht.

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

“When a customer contacts us to rent a Monaco Grand Prix yacht, we immediately focus on securing a berth in Port Hercules, the only marina adjacent to the race course,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and The SailAway Group“The only way to view the race from the deck of a yacht is to be moored in the marina, preferably in Zone 1, closest to the track and Jumbotron.”

Dock space in the port is reserved via a written application.  It can take up to 5 weeks to process, unless you are a race team sponsor.

“It doesn’t matter if you want to attend the Grand Prix in Monaco or the Film Festival in Cannes, you must make it a priority to secure a berth many weeks, if not months, prior to the event,” reports Sheeder“We hear horror stories where people have rented a yacht only to find their charter broker did not secure dockage at the marina closest to the special event location.”

 

WHICH YACHT HAS SECURE DOCKAGE?

Nearly all available dockage is already reserved for the Grand Prix.  Sheeder and her team found yachts available for the race AND have secure dockage.

“We have several yachts, such as the 26 meter JACKIE ONE, available for the race and with a secured berth in Zone 1, right next to the race course,” claims Sheeder.

 

 

JACKIE ONE

The 82 foot Amer motoryacht JACKIE ONE has event dockage.

EXTERIOR

She combines elegance with comfort and space.  Maiora gave her a refit in 2007 to add features.  For instance, the yacht now has a large hydro-massage Jacuzzi.

 

INTERIOR

SALON – Her salon features comfort, entertainment, width, and home theatre. It has large windows and refined furnishings.  Meal service alternates betwen the dining table in the salon, inside the cockpit, at the back on the aft deck, and above, on the upper deck.

DOCKSIDE

The yacht can host up to 30 passengers for watching the race or for evening cocktail parties.  She has four spacious cabins with accommodations for 8 overnight guests.

RATE

Motoryacht JACKIE ONE is offering a reduced rate for the Grand Prix of Monaco.  She lowered her rate from €25,000 EUROS. Her 4-day rate for Monaco Grand Prix is now  €20,000 EUROS.  This includes secured berth for the race.  The yacht is VAT exempt.  Her running expenses, such as food and bar, are additional.
