The 54 meter Perini Navi sail yacht PARSIFAL III has committed to relocate.  She heads to the Caribbean for the upcoming winter season.  She introduces lower, competitive rates to entice charter clients.

Yacht managers announce today about dates.  The Mediterranean-based luxury sailing charter vessel should arrive in the islands by December 1st and remain through April, 2012.

Parcifal’s rate is normally priced in Euros.  Lower rates are available in US Dollars for the winter season.  This is to encourage American travelers.  They have been stung by the low currency exchange value between Dollars and Euros. 


Rates for charters in the Caribbean are $250,000 per week for Christmas or New Years.  All other dates are $200,000 per week.  Running expenses, for instance, food, bar, fuel and dockage, are additional.



Perini Navi SpA  sail yacht PARSIFAL III accommodates 12 guests in 6 staterooms.  She sets new standards in performance and has levels of comfort rarely found on a sailing yacht.

Parsifal’s interior is a design by Remi Tessier. It blends dark ebony, wenge, and light sycamore with stainless steel and fine leather.  Her craftsmanship is exquisite.  Detail is complemented by natural textures and textiles.  This ultra modern yacht has a warm, inviting, and relaxing feeling.



Sailboat Parsifal’s vast outside space includes an on-deck Jacuzzi and barbecue area.  This is ideal for entertaining.



Other yachts similar to PARSIFAL III and available this winter in the Caribbean include sail yacht PANTHALASSA and charter sailboat charter FIDELIS

Top 3 Biggest Gadget Failures on 2011 Yachts

Posted on

Animated image collage of gadgets. The entire picture has a blue and purple tint. The date 2011 is written across the left side of the collage.

Top Gadget Failures of 2011

Regular readers of our blogs kno the team in our yacht charter department loves gadgets – from great Christmas stocking stuffer gadgets to our favorite must-have new gadgets for 2012.

But what about gadgets that simply didn’t cut the mustard in 2011? 

In a year when technology heralded the magic of the Cloud and 4G phones were popping up everywhere, the year also bore witness to some failures of epic proportion. Here are our picks for the three biggest technology meltdowns of 2011:


3-D Technology

We’ve said it many times – the tech toys and gadgets found on mega yacht charter vessels are a good barometer as to what is hot and what is not.  Take for example, 3-D technology.  The future might be now, but you’d hardly know it by taking a peek in the average yacht’s salon.  A quick look at some of the newest yachts like the 61 meter Benetti yacht LYANA and the 56 meter Perini Navi sail yacht FIDELIS shows 3-D technology has not been embraced by the yachting community.

You just don’t see any 3-D television sets on the yachts, or in many homes.  Blame high prices or headaches from wearing silly-colored glasses, but at the end of 2011, interest in 3-D TV is the same as it was at the beginning of 2011, and sales are flat.

iPhone 4S

While sales are anything but flat for the iPhone 4s, Apples newest handset is still a major consumer letdown.  Yes, it’s one of  the fastest, best-looking smartphones on the block — but it’s no iPhone 5.  Apple aficionados spent the better part of the year waiting for a reincarnated iPhone with a larger screen, and thinner profile. In the end, they were presented with the iPhone 4S — a nominal upgrade at best over the previous model.


Android Tablets

While the iPhone 4s may have been a letdown, Apple’s iPad tablet juggernaut seems unstoppable, leading us to declare Android tablets as the biggest gadget failure of 2011. A year after the release of the first iPad, not a single technology company has made a dent in Apple’s tablet market. Sales of devices like the Motorola Xoom featuring the Android tablet operating system pale in comparison to the sales of the mighty iPad.  Will the new iPad 2 be the final nail in the coffin of Android tablets in the marketplace?   


Can you think of any other technology blunders for gadgets that failed to catch on in 2011?  If you are a boater, which new gadgets are on your wish list that you would like to see available on charter yachts?  Please contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters booking department at to tell us which gadgets you would like on yachts.
