After this weekend’s 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Feadship motor yacht JANA will hoist her anchor and reposition for the winter season in the Maldives.
Expected to arrive in mid December, the classic 46-meter Feadship yacht charter vessel is currently available for a Christmas reservation.
Motoryacht JANA will remain in the Maldives through mid April and joins a growing list of yachts for hire in this Indian Ocean paradise.
Other megayachts committed to the winter season in the Maldives include the 64 meter Benetti motoryacht SILVER ANGEL, sail yacht PERLA DEL MARE, the 60 meter motor yacht ARKLEY, and the 150 foot motoryacht MOECCA.
Serving as a privately-chartered spectator yacht at this year’s Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi, Feadship yacht JANA will complete one more charter in Abu Dhabi in November before embarking for the Indian Ocean.
The prospect of offering alternative destinations for winter charters is exciting for JANA Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “Our team is committed to expanding the destination options available to our clients,” says Sheeder. “A winter holiday in the warm waters of the Maldives is an excellent alternative to the traditional Caribbean yacht charter vacation.”
The Maldives offer visitors the chance to enjoy crystal clear water and sugar white, sandy beaches. Located in the Indian Ocean, the Republic of Maldives is an island nation formed by a double-wrapped chain of twenty-six (26) atolls. The winter water temperature is amazingly warm, about 31 degrees celsius (87 degrees fahrenheit), and the opportunities for snorkeling and watersports seem endless. There are hundreds of reefs, many in the shallow waters of enclosed lagoons.
“We hope to add even more megayachts to the growing list available this winter in the Maldives.”
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.”

The idea of a Persian Gulf yacht charter grew a lot more intriguing today. One of the world’s richest sports teams announced plans! The club intends to build on its enormous following.
Real Madrid soccer club President Florentino Perez unveiled Real Madrid Resort Island. It is a holiday resort on an artificial island in the United Arab Emirates. The resort is therefore scheduled to open in January 2015.
The resort will feature multiple sports facilities, a superyacht marina, luxury hotels, a soccer-themed amusement park, club museum, and a 10,000-seat stadium with one side open to the Persian Gulf.
“It is a decisive and strategic step that will strengthen our institution in the Middle East and Asia,” said Perez.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and SailAway Yacht Charters believes this new resort will strengthen the Middle East’s burgeoning yacht market.
“In just three years, we’ve witnessed the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show blossom into a world-class showing of megayachts for sale and charter,” says Sheeder.
“More and more Mediterranean yacht charter vessels are migrating to the Middle East to take part in premier boat shows, both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as other special events like Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The introduction of a new megayacht complex at Real Madrid Resort Island will further bolster this emerging charter destination.”
Motor yacht CONSTANCE (ex-JANA) is among a dozen or so megayachts offering charters in the Middle East in 2012. In conclusion, to charter your private luxury yacht, contact the charter department at 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/
