Discounts Help Overcome Surging Euro

Posted on

Discounts. Words, I Like Discounts, in purplish blue, with a thumbs up symbol at the end.HOW TO FIND THE BEST YACHT CHARTER PRICE

Finding the best prices for crewed catamaran charters and super yacht charters has never been easier.  Travelers looking for exceptional value at sea can turn to a new webpage offered by 1-800 Yacht Charters.

 

WHO IS 1-800 YACHT CHARTERS

1-800 Yacht Charters, known for offering the newest and largest yachts in the world’s best destinations, has created a web page featuring seasonal last minute specials, free days onboard, and exclusive deep discounts. Specials are available for select catamarans, sailboats, and motor yachts…RIGHT NOW!

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

The company’s President, Jana Sheeder, feels the time is right to go beyond “selling”  charter vacations. 

The dynamics of our global economy are evolving,” says Sheeder.  “We continue to see the weakening of the value of the dollar against the euro. This means travel to Europe continues to become more expensive for Americans.

Sheeder continues,

Many of our yachts transact in Euros.  By focusing on value, we can offer savvy travelers an opportunity to mitigate the effects of a surging euro.  Offering deep discounts and free, extra days onboard helps offset the gap between our US currency and that of the European Union.

 

WEBPAGE FEATURES

The new web page displays a dozen or so yachts, both in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, offering significant savings for rentals;  for example, at 311 feet 8 inches (95 meters) in length, motor yacht INDIAN EMPRESS is one of the largest yachts in the world. Her weekly rental rate is €600,000.  Sheeder is offering a rate reduction of €200,000 per week for summer 2011 bookings. 

Saving almost 25% helps offset the nearly 35% currency premium between the dollar and the euro,” states Sheeder.

 

YACHT CHARTER DISCOUNTS

The discounts also apply to more affordable yachts as well.  The 60′ catamaran NIRVANA is currently based in the Caribbean and can accommodate a group of 8 to 10 family and friends.  Her regular rate is €13,300 per week, but for remaining available dates in February and March, the rental rate is slashed by 15%.

 

BOOKMARK THE SITE

The specials are updated frequently, so visitors to the company’s website are encouraged to BOOKMARK THE www.1800yachtcharters.com SITE and check back often for more great offers!

Iconic Superyacht Completes Refit in Time for France Yacht Charter Season

Posted on

YACHT LAUNCH DETAILS

This gorgeous yacht launch was 2000.  Ninety-five meter (311 foot) motor yacht INDIAN EMPRESS then ranked among the 20 largest yachts in the world.  Sixteen years of wear and tear takes a toll on a superyacht.  After a record-setting refit, she returns to full glory.  Specifically in time for the upcoming charter season in the South of France.

 

AMAZING REFIT

Mark Berryman Design revamp of the interior created contemporary atmosphere.  A Turquoise Yachts refit in a record time of 6 months cost €6.4 million.

Originally built for a member of the royal Qatari family, yacht INDIAN EMPRESS was purchased by her current owner, Vijay Mallya in 2006, and ever since has enjoyed a stellar reputation as one of the largest yachts available for hire. She’s a fixture at celebrity-studded events such as the Monaco Grand Prix.

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Jana Sheeder and her team at 1-800 Yacht Charters offer magnificent superyacht Indian Empress for hire for a maximum 12 guests, at a weekly rate of €750,000 plus running expenses (items such as food, alcohol, fuel, dockage, etc.). Sheeder was impressed by the quick turnaround at Turquoise.

“The owner’s extensive work brief required a very short turnaround time frame, and Mr. Karabeyoglu (the CEO of Turquoise) and his team are known for their speed and flexibility,” says Sheeder. “Being diligent in the design phase prior to the commencement of the refit allowed Turquoise to truly understand the owner’s desires and the instructions of the team at Mark Berryman.  Proper planning in advance helped Turquoise complete this major remodeling in record time.”

 

UPGRADES

The yacht upgrades are many. For instance, a remodeled bridge deck (where a large lobby was re-designed into a corridor). In addition, a new office with new walls.  Finally, a new fire alarm and sprinkler system.

UNIQUE

She remains a unique yacht. She exudes timeless design and an intriguing history.

Superyacht Project – Will Oceanco yacht AMARA Join the Luxury Yacht Charter Fleet?

Posted on

THE NEWS

Danish builder Oceanco unveiled their superyacht project.  She is the 120 meter yacht AMARA.  In specific, she debuted at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS).

 

THE CONCEPT

The yard continues to push the boundaries of design.  Oceanco yacht AMARA showcases the builder’s new “lifestyle philosophy” concept. She places great emphasis on a family-oriented style of living.  Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht’s designer, describes the resort-style concept of the project.  Besides this, Mr. Sorgiovanni says, “…the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.”

 

THE AMENITIES

Our quick review of the yacht’s initial technical specs discovers an interior with a contemporary style.  She has natural tones and light woods.  Her design is to embrace the ‘resort’ lifestyle.  Plenty of wide open spaces and natural light lend to the relaxed atmosphere. She is an amazing superyacht project.

Amara features many onboard amenties. For instance, 2 theatres, 2 Majilis-style areas (Majilis means “a place of sitting” in Arabic), and a climbing wall.  In addition, she has an upper deck waterfall that flows into the main deck swimming pool.  There is a wellness areas on the lower deck, including Hammam steam bath and a beauty salon.  This gorgeous yacht also has a water slide and a circular relaxation pod that suspends over the water.  How unique is she!

The LUXURY YACHT CHARTER QUESTION

Oceanco has a solid reputation for building luxury yacht charter superyachts. For example, 56 meter The WELLESLEY and the massive 95 meter Oceanco yacht INDIAN EMPRESS are in their fleet.  Briefly, we lick our chops to be the first to offer this.  Motoryacht  AMARA promises to be popular for our clients.

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

According to our company president, Jana Sheeder, we may have to wait a while.

“As we are seeing with the 70 meter Heesen yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA, also a new concept in resort-style yachts, I believe yacht AMARA will enjoy extensive private use by her owner prior to becoming available for charter.  The good news is that we continue to witness growth in the experiential travel sector, especially with an emphasis on wellness yacht charter vacations.  The demand for superyachts with resort facilities such as spas and beauty salons is strong, and the eventual owner of AMARA will be in a solid position to capitalize on this growing business trend.”  

 

THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Here’s the Danish builder’s press release via PRNewswire:

Oceanco Unveils Amara – A 120-Meter ‘Resort’ Yacht

Oceanco revealed the lifestyle philosophy of creating a yacht designed for extended families and friends. Amara provides unparalleled living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests. The contemporary interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics blend to create an inviting and natural environment.

“In designing the exterior lines of Amara, I wanted to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal,” says Sorgiovanni. Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions. Most importantly, the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.

The lower level deck opens up to reveal an expansive beach club resort that offers 3-way access to the sea; port starboard and aft. Also on this deck is a comprehensive wellness area with banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and a cinema experience for 16 persons.

The gym with a capital view is located on the bridge deck. For intimate gatherings there are two Majilis-style areas (meaning, “a place of sitting” in Arabic, per Wikipedia) aboard. In addition, there is a quixotic cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck.  There is something special for young guests and those young at heart.  Specifically, there are accommodations for fun sports equipment.
