When your clients are accustomed to +70 meter superyachts for their private luxury yacht charter vacations, you should probably think twice about recommending a 40 meter yacht for their next getaway…
Unless that 40 meter vessel is motor yacht ‘H with Captain Phil Frost at the helm.
About three weeks ago, good friends of ours called. They were taking a short trip from their home in the states to visit their daughter who is spending a college semester in France. During the visit, they planned to catch the “On The Run II: Beyonce & Jay-Z” concert in Paris, then spend a few days exploring. They asked, “Since we’re not taking the whole family, is there a smaller, contemporary-designed yacht that you would recommend for a quick getaway in France?” Without hesitation, we said, “Yes, the best available option is the 42 meter Benetti motoryacht ‘H.”
Built in 2015, motor yacht ‘H is a shining example of the Italian builder’s Fast 140 series, with exterior styling by Stefano Righini, and interiors by HJH Studios. The yacht has it all – a massive sundeck, an impressive skylounge, and a fantastic, young, energetic crew led by can-do skipper, Australian Phil Frost. Phil’s motto is, “Say yes, then figure out how to make it happen!”
With just hours to prepare, Phil and his team provisioned and prepared for our clients’ arrival in Bonifacio. Less than 2 hours after getting onboard, our clients sent us two, short, but telling texts. First, the husband wrote, “Having the best time.” Then, his wife wrote, “Oh man, this crew is awesome!”
Once back home, the family called us to say the yacht was beautiful and surprisingly comfortable for a 40 meter yacht, and the crew made everyone feel as if they were onboard a 70 meter vessel.
They were so impressed, plans are already underway for a repeat trip in September…
If you’re considering a private yacht charter vacation in the Med in August or September (or the Caribbean this winter), it’s hard to overstate the value, luxury, and comfort you’ll find with Captain Phil Frost, onboard Benetti motor yacht ‘H…
[Side note – Beyonce and Jay-Z decided to do a little boating after the concert as well. They loaded the family onboard motor yacht KISMET (video) before returning to the next leg of their world tour…]

While this mommy and daddy are well-known for enjoying numerous week-long mega yacht charter vacations at sea, a simple day excursion on the water was a great introduction for their infant daughter to the yachting lifestyle.
Beyonce, husband Jay-Z, and three month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter spent the Easter holidays in one of the family’s favorite vacation enclaves – the island of St Barts.
The local paparazzi captured the parents boarding a small day charter vessel, with Blue Ivy in her mother’s arms, as they prepared to spend a lazy afternoon on the water.
Locals on St Barts are used to seeing the media power couple once or twice a year, their chartered superyacht docked along the quay. For the short Easter weekend, the family elected to stay in shoreside accommodations. But the yachting “itch” is powerful, and the couple took a perfect-weather day as an opportunity to go boating in the afternoon – and to take along their daughter for her first boat ride.
Perhaps we’ll see the family back in St Barts at year-end, enjoying another New Year’s Eve yachting vacation.

Want to experience a Caribbean yacht charter like a celebrity? Then look no further than the exclusive island of Saint Barthélemy, better known as St Barts.
Always sunny with very little rain, the tiny island has become famous for celebrity sightings, especially during the year-end holidays where all-night New Year’s Eve yacht hops and parties capture the attention of the global newswires.
A playground for billionaire superyacht owners and pop culture icons, the scene in St Barts between Christmas and New Years is unlike anywhere else in the world. From Mariah Carey and Sean “P Diddy” Combs, to Beyonce , Jay Z and Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore – all have spent time lounging on the sundeck of a multi-million dollar luxury mega yacht charter vessel dockside in the island’s Gustavia marina.
So just where is St Barts, the island paradise dubbed, “Hollywood South?”
St. Barts is a tiny island situated in the French West Indies. Located 17°55’ north and 62°50’ west, just below the Tropic of Cancer, and north of the chain of the Lesser Antilles. Puerto Rico is 240 km (about 160 miles) to the west.
St. Barts lies 35 km southeast of Saint Martin, separated by the Saint-Barthélemy Channel. It lies northeast of Saba and St Eustatius, and north of St Kitts. Some small satellite islets belong to St. Barts including Île Chevreau, Île Frégate, Île Toc Vers, and Île Tortue. A much bigger islet, Île Fourchue, lies to the north of the island, in the Saint-Barthélemy Channel. Other nearby islets include Coco, the Roques (or little Turtle rocks), and Sugarloaf.
Seven thousand kilometers separate St Barts from Paris, but it is just 2500 from New York (about a 4 hour flight).

A couple weeks ago, we shared some guest comments and a vid for motor yacht ‘H. We mentioned that our clients were enjoying a luxury yacht charter after catching Bey and Jay-Z’s “On The Run II” concert in Paris. A day after the show, Beyonce and family also grabbed a superyacht and headed to sea to enjoy a few days cruising the Italian coastline.
It seems a few of you saw photos of the power couple as they walked the streets in Capri, but that wasn’t good enough – you wanted to see their yacht!
Now you know we can’t show you private photos of the Carters on the yacht (not cool), but – we’re glad to show you a video of the yacht!
So here you go fans – click here to enjoy some amazing images onboard motoryacht KISMET – and use your imagination to picture Queen B and the fam, living it up!
[BTW – if you’re still dying to see the family on yacht Kismet, there are a couple photos posted on Beyonce’s Instagram page]

Celebrities enjoy apres-ski private chalets in Vail, to multi-deck behemoth superyacht vessels in the Caribbean. Some take traveling to the extreme. Here are three additional couples racking up frequent flyer miles.
Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca. Ethan spent a grueling 39 days in desert conditions to win the hit reality TV show Survivor Africa. His girlfriend Jenna Morasca took home the million-dollar prize on Survivor Amazon. They have been together for eight years. This adventure-loving couple set out on another extreme travel odyssey after those. They both joined the cast of CBS hit show The Amazing Race. They are obviously not the kind of couple to spend the winter vacation lying in the sun on the deck of a bareboat charter boat.
