74m Motor Yacht MOGAMBO Available for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yacht Charter, Nov 25-27, 2016

Posted on

 

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.

The yacht’s key features include:

  • Master suite on main deck including office and balcony ensuite
  • 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.

The post-race fireworks extravaganza is truly amazing as well!!!

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!

Motor yacht Jana Speeds On to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Luxury motor yacht charter Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Formula 1 Race yacht hire yacht holiday alquilar yates iate yate boat

Watching an auto race is exhilarating. The elements of speed and danger seem fused together by the power of high-torque engines and the drivers with nerves of steel.  But let’s be honest – sitting in the hot grandstands with thousands of strangers is less than the ideal way to view the glamour, the cars, and the grid girls of a Formula 1™ event.

Thus, it’s little wonder why the Port Hercule marina in Monaco is filled to capacity in May for the annual running of the Monaco Grand Prix.  With the cars zipping by the marina, there’s no doubt the best seat in the house is on a luxury yacht.

Unfortunately, the rest of the 2011 Formula 1 races take place on tracks far removed from the oceanside.  That is, all but one other – the 2011 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

It’s rare for a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel to make the sojourn to the Middle East, but one superyacht is anxious to secure a reservation for the 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – motoryacht JANA.

The classic 46 meter Feadship is actively seeking a booking for the November 11-13 racing event.

Built in 1986, the yacht has received several refits throughout her charter career, the most recent being in 2009, in which she had the majority of her hull and superstructure repainted and most of her of soft furnishings replaced.  The Dutch-built masterpiece accommodates 10 – 12 guests in 5 cabins.  With a large sun deck, motor yacht JANA can easily host race day soirees for 20 to 40 guests.

According to Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters, “This yacht offers the best in accommodations, cuisine, amenities, and service, plus she has a wide array of aquasport toys for guests to enjoy in the warmth of the Middle Eastern sun.”

The yacht is available for the Grand Prix at the rate of €100,000 for 5 days, plus running expenses (items such as food, bar, dockage, etc.).

Sheeder says her office will assist in securing a premium berth to view the race.

“We have a first-class team in place to handle all concierge-related requests, from dockage – to ground transportation – to catering a cocktail reception on the yacht.”

The race takes place on the Yas Marina Circuit, located on Yas Island, about 30 minutes from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Approximately 50,000 spectators can view the action on the circuit from permanent, covered grandstands that protect visitors from the desert sun. Of course, the best viewing areas are the most secure and private – the decks of the yachts in the Yas Marina.

The circuit is 5.55 kilometers long, with a total of 21 corners with 9 right turns and 12 left turns. The track features a lot of hairpins and long straights, and there are few potential overtaking places. The pit lane entry is very challenging, as is the exit, which runs underneath the track in a tunnel.

The world’s largest indoor theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, is also located on Yas Island. The park hosts more than 20 rides and attractions. One of the attractions, Formula Rossa, has the same G force one would feel driving in an F1 car and braking at maximum speed. It is the world’s fastest roller coaster, powered through the 2.07 km track at speeds up to 240 km/h, reaching 0-100 km/h in less than two seconds.

Sheeder believes the popularity of Abu Dhabi is on the rise, and a Grand Prix yacht charter is a great opportunity to explore the area by yacht. “In addition to the race and related social events onboard motoryacht JANA, there is so much to see and do in Abu Dhabi,” says Sheeder.  “The people are warm and hospitable and the weather in November feels like the summer in the Med.”

Which Color Is Best?   Motor Yacht Sherakhan Gets Makeover

Posted on

If you owned a 228 foot luxury yacht charter vessel, would you paint it deep blue or polar white?

 

If you owned the massive motor yacht SHERAKHAN the answer is:  BOTH!

 

Originally built in 1965, the current owner bought the commercial vessel in 2005 and undertook a massive refit – basically gutting the entire ship from bow to stern and rebuilt her into a yacht charter vessel with accommodations for 26 guests (most yachts are limited to 12 or fewer). The full rebuild featured all new plumbing, electrical systems, air conditioning, and generators.

 

It also included a beautiful new paint job – a deep blue hull, with a white superstructure…

Fast forward to 2017, and the owner decided it was time for another refit. All new decks were installed, along with new soft fabrics throughout the guests areas and cabins, and a complete overhaul of all major equipment in the engine room.

 

As he did in 2005, the owner completely repainted the superyacht charter vessel – this time a clean, crisp white, with subtle grey accents..

The expedition style yacht is available in the Caribbean and will remain there through April.  In the summer, the yacht will relocate to the Mediterranean (e.g.  Monaco yacht charter or Grand Prix formula 1 races, etc.) for the summer of 2018.

 

So what do you think?   Do you think she looks better in blue or in white???
