“Having the Best Time…” on Motor Yacht ‘H – [Video]

Posted on

 

WHICH YACHT TO RECOMMEND?

When your clients are accustomed to +70 meter superyachts for their private luxury yacht charter vacations, you should probably think twice about recommending a 40 meter yacht for their next getaway…

 

MOTORYACHT ‘H

Unless that 40 meter vessel is motor yacht ‘H with Captain Phil Frost at the helm.

 

BEYONCE AND JAY-Z

About three weeks ago, good friends of ours called.  They were taking a short trip from their home in the states to visit their daughter who is spending a college semester in France.  During the visit, they planned to catch the “On The Run II: Beyonce & Jay-Z” concert in Paris, then spend a few days exploring.  They asked, “Since we’re not taking the whole family, is there a smaller, contemporary-designed yacht that you would recommend for a quick getaway in France?”  Without hesitation, we said, “Yes, the best available option is the 42 meter Benetti motoryacht ‘H.”

 

WHO IS SUPERYACHT ‘H?

Built in 2015, motor yacht ‘H is a shining example of the Italian builder’s Fast 140 series, with exterior styling by Stefano Righini, and interiors by HJH Studios.  The yacht has it all – a massive sundeck, an impressive skylounge, and a fantastic, young, energetic crew led by can-do skipper, Australian Phil Frost.  Phil’s motto is, “Say yes, then figure out how to make it happen!”

 

GUEST RESPONSES

With just hours to prepare, Phil and his team provisioned and prepared for our clients’ arrival in Bonifacio.  Less than 2 hours after getting onboard, our clients sent us two, short, but telling texts.  First, the husband wrote, “Having the best time.”  Then, his wife wrote, “Oh man, this crew is awesome!”

 

CLIENTS CALL US

Once back home, the family called us to say the yacht was beautiful and surprisingly comfortable for a 40 meter yacht, and the crew made everyone feel as if they were onboard a 70 meter vessel.

They were so impressed, plans are already underway for a repeat trip in September…

 

WOULD YOU RATHER…

If you’re considering a private yacht charter vacation in the Med in August or September (or the Caribbean this winter), it’s hard to overstate the value, luxury, and comfort you’ll find with Captain Phil Frost, onboard Benetti motor yacht ‘H…

 

KISMET

[Side note – Beyonce and Jay-Z decided to do a little boating after the concert as well.  They loaded the family onboard motor yacht KISMET (video) before returning to the next leg of their world tour…]
