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

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!

Superyacht AURELIA – unique paint job



This yacht boats a color scheme common at the Monaco Grand Prix.  The 37 meter Heesen motor yacht AURELIA plans to relocate this winter to Saint Martin.  This is just before the Caribbean yacht charter season.  The stunning, brand new yacht is available from mid December, 2011 through April 2012.



Her paint job is inspired by the owner’s passion for racing cars.  Motor yacht AURELIA features an unusual exterior paint job from Dobroserdov Design.  Likewise, the Bannenberg & Rowell interior of motor yacht AURELIA is race-inspired as well. Luxury yacht charter guests are impressed by the richness of materials and elaborate details used to create the yacht’s interiors.


She accommodates 8 guests in four staterooms.  Each cabin is named for a racing car designer. The master suite is located forward on the main deck.  Three double guest cabins are positioned on the lower deck. First, Bertone (orange Lamborghini), second, Pininfarina (red Ferrari), and third, Zagato (green Aston Martin). These are the race car designers inspiring the décor of the guest cabins.

Every year, two annual events make a visit to the city of Monte Carlo a must for yacht charter clientele – the Monaco Grand Prix and the Monaco Yacht Show.  With the Grand Prix a distant image in our rearview mirrors, focus turns to the yacht show.

What makes this show truly unique is the number of new yachts on hand.  About 40 of the newest  superyachts delivered in the past 12 months will be on exhibit.

Here are several yachts from the 1-800 Yacht Charter database scheduled to be on display:

Motor yacht ICON  – a 62.50 meter custom built yacht launched in 2010.

Motor yacht CARPE DIEM – a 58.20 meter vessel launched in 2011.

Motor yacht MIA ELISE – a 2010, 49.90 meter custom built motoryacht by Trinity Yachts.


Motor yacht QUINTA ESSENTIA – a 55 meter yacht built in 2011 and known for her unique color scheme.

The show is open daily, from 10am to 6.30pm and takes place at Port Hercules, Boulevard Albert 1er, in the Principality of Monaco. The main entrance to the show is the Darse Sud entrance, with other entry points at the Chicane and Parvis Sud.   General admission tickets are available at the entrances for €65 per day.

Can’t make the show?  Our charter department personally inspects dozens of yachts each year on behalf of our clients.  To plan a private Caribbean yacht charter vacation this winter, contact the charter team at 1800 Yacht Charters at for yacht and itinerary suggestions

Perfect Espresso Machine For Monaco Grand Prix Yacht Charter Fans

Posted on


OK, it’s time for all of our gearhead buddies to come clean. We know the only reason you call us each year to book a yacht for the Monaco Grand Prix.  Your wives have zero interest in sitting in the stands with hundreds of strangers, watching F1 racers zip by. 


We understand.  A yacht docked along the quay with amenities like ondeck hot tub and luxurious sun lounges gives your ladies what they want and deserve.  It also gives you and your friends unobstructed views of the street track. 


It’s that spirit of “compromise” when it comes to racing that caught our attention with this new item.


Our editor walked in this morning with a photo of the Espresso Veloce Machine.   It is an espresso machine billed as a tribute to the 1990’s Grand Prix race car engines.   These machines powered racing legends like Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.

VELOCE – means “fast” in Italian

Photograph of the Espresso Veloce coffee maker. It looks like a red and silver race car engine.


The Espresso Veloce Machine construction of race-world alloys includes magnesium, titanium, and aluminum.  It is about half the size of a real-life 3-liter racing engine.  The machine comes in both a V10 and V12 configuration.   The oil-filler doubles as a grappa reservoir.  Coffee serves through the exhaust tubes.
And get this.  The mug designs complement the overall theme!


Production is limited to just 500 numbered units worldwide.  No word yet on the price or anticipated shipping dates.


Now the real trick – getting your wife to toss the LavAazza.  Replace it on the kitchen counter with this bad boy!!!  😉
