THE WINNERS

Elegant CMN Yacht CLOUD 9 was just one luxury yacht charter vessel to catch the attention of the judges at the recent ShowBoats Design Awards. Of the 10 winning private yacht entries, 6 are currently available for either Caribbean or Mediterranean yacht charter.  The newest and largest yachts in the rental marketplace improves every year, as owners push the design envelope to new heights. 
 

THE YACHT RENTAL AWARDS CEREMONY

The inaugural yacht awards ceremony took place in October at the exclusive Mar A Lago Club.  The facility is Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Florida. It was sponsored by ShowBoats International.   It began with a two-day Superyacht Design Symposium.  On the 3rd day, 350 guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails. The evening also featured a gala dinner and an awards ceremony honoring the yachting industry’s creative talents. Those talents included architects, designers, stylists, craftsmen, and innovators in yacht technologies.

ShowBoats Design Awards came about as a former part of the Boat International Media World Superyacht Awards.  They introduced a number of new categories. The jury included 4 superyacht owners, 2 naval architects, a senior yacht captain, an experienced yacht chef, and six design professionals with no links to the industry. The awards resulted from more than 200 yacht nominations. 

Joining the 60-meter charteryacht Cloud 9 on the winner’s stage were:

  • HURRICANE RUN – Best Interior Design: Displacement Motor Yacht
  • SLIPSTREAM –  along with sistership CLOUD 9 – Best Exterior Design & Styling: Motor Yacht

THE NEXT AWARDS SHOW

The next yacht award event is the 2011 World Superyacht Awards, and it will be hosted by the editors of Boat International Media.  The awards honor the finest new vessels delivered to their owners in the past twelve months.  The award presented is The Neptune Award, or the “Oscar” of the megayacht industry.

The ceremony is scheduled for May 7, 2011, and it is attended by yacht owners from around the globe. Others who attend are influential players in the boating business.

CHARTERYACHT FINALISTS

62 finalists are in contention to receive a coveted Neptune Trophy, including the 56-meter Panthalassa and the 60-meter MARY JEAN II.

Famous Race Horses Immortalized In Superyachts

Posted on

HORSE RACING

Horse racing.  For centuries it has been known as, “The Sport of Kings.”  An obsession which borders on an addiction.  To illustrate, she is a mixture of both royalty and aristocracy.  

YACHT OWNERSHIP

Modern day royal families and billionaire capitalists keep alive this grand tradition. They own and race horses.  In addition, some horse owners also own luxury yachts.  Specifically, a few have chosen to name their yachts in honor of their prized steeds.

HORSES AND LUXURY YACHTS

Below are 3 extraordinary equine athletes and their namesake yachts. 


Aerial photograph of yacht, Thundergulch, underway, headed toward right side of photo. In the top right and bottom left of photo are small inserts of racehorses.


First, THUNDER GULCH
Thoroughbred Thunder Gulch left the starting gate at 25-1 odds in 1995.  He went on to win the
Kentucky Derby. Born in 1992, the champion American racehorse was ridden by Hall of Fame jockey, Gary Stevens.   He was trained by legendary horseman, D. Wayne Lukas.  Thunder Gulch then won the 1995 Belmont Stakes, the Florida Derby, and more. 

On the other hand, motor yacht Thunder Gulch was “born” in 1999.  The 164′ Mediterranean yacht charter vessel accommodates 10 guests in 5 staterooms.  Recently sold and renamed TJ ESPERANZA, ex-Thunder Gulch is available for charter at $250,000 plus running expenses per week.

 

NEXT TWO

Second, HURRICANE RUN
Irish horse Hurricane Run launched an illustrious career with wins at the 2005 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barriere, and the
Irish Derby.  He was named the European Horse Of The Year at the 2005 Cartier Racing Awards.

In the same way, motor yacht Hurricane Run was launched in late January 2009.  She was born at Feadship Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw yard in the Netherlands,  The 53.50 meter megayacht accommodates up to 12 guests in six cabins.  Rental rates start at $315,000 per week, plus expenses.



Aerial photograph of the yacht, Mi Sueno, underway. She is headed toward the top right corner of the photo. In the bottom right corner of the photo is a tiny picture of the racehorse named Mi Sueno.
Third, MI SUENO
Leading US filly Mi Sueno saw her promising career cut short by a condylar fracture of her off-fore cannonbone in 2009.  She won the Grade 1 Darley Debutante at Del Mar.  Mi Sueno was retired as a broodmare by trainer Eric Guillot.  The daughter of Pulpit also won the Grade 3 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar. After that, she beat Grade 1 winner Blind Luck in the Debutante.

Consequently, 190 foot motoryacht Mi Sueno, launched in 2010, is was a standout.  She has WiFi and Kaleidescape central movie/music server throughout. She is also equipped with a 2-person, wheelchair-accessible elevator.

Superyacht: So Where Do You Park it?

Posted on

Where does an elephant sit? #joke

JOKE

There’s an old joke that goes something like this:  “Where does a 200 ton elephant sit?
The answer of course is, “Anywhere he wants!

 

THE SIZE OF A SUPERYACHT

Unlike the mighty elephant, superyachts aren’t as lucky.  Their massive size is certainly impressive, but when it comes to sufficient space to dock, their just aren’t enough marinas with  enough room to berth the world’s largest yachts.  Owners onboard large luxury yacht charter vessels often are forced to anchor at sea and use tenders to come and go ashore.

 

BERTH FOR SALE

Thus the news of a megayacht berth for sale along the French Riviera is certain to draw the attention of yachtsman tired of the ordeal of tendering ashore.

A rare 50 meter berth has just been listed for longterm lease in Cap d’Ail. Cap d’Ail is perfectly positioned on the Cote d’Azur, and serves as a gateway to Monte Carlo, just a short drive or cruise from Nice, France and northern Italy.

DOCKAGE DETAILS

With large yacht berths rapidly becoming a rare find, this slip will surely sell quickly. The berth measures 50 x 10 meters, and comes with fenders (is there anything worse than a scratched paint job on a fancy yacht?).   The berth’s lease expires December 31, 2027.

 

HOW MUCH IS A YACHT SLIP?

The asking price of berth number 6 is € 4,500,000. 

Sounds like a steal!

 

LARGE YACHTS


Some of the newest yachts in the 50 meter range include Perini Navi motor yacht EXUMA
racehorse-inspired motoryacht HURRICANE RUN and the Trinity yacht charter superstar, motor yacht MIA ELISE.
