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…]

From time to time, we like to take a light-hearted look at the world of yachting. Yacht names inspired by love is always a hoot. We still chuckle at the comments we get about our salmon skin blog [Yes, some luxury yacht charter vessels DO use salmon skin for upholstery. NO, it doesn’t smell fishy!!!].
Let’s have some fun and play a game about well-known NFL owners and their personal superyachts. For every correct answer give yourself 1 to 5 points, depending upon the degree of difficulty. At the end of the blog, we’ll tell you what you win based on your total points. Let’s get started!!!
This is a multiple choice question (3 points):
In January, 2020, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren takes aim and calls out an NFL owner and his purchase of a superyacht. On Twitter she says,
“This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a ‘superyacht’ with its own iMax theater. I’m pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt.”
Is the owner:
The answer is…
True or False (2 points)
Arthur Blank the owner of the Atlanta Falcons built two tenders to shuttle passengers to and from his superyacht. True of False? Blank named the tenders, “Molly” and “Max,” the names of his parents?
The answer is…
Blank actually built three tenders for his superyacht. Here is his explanation as to the names he selected for his tenders:
“I personally, carefully chose the names of our three beautiful custom Compass tenders. ‘Soul Purpose’ reflects how being at sea stirs the soul to dream of peace and happiness and a higher purpose in life. The other two tenders, ‘Max’ and ‘Molly’ were named in honor of my parents, which is my way of revering their memory and keeping them forever close to me wherever I travel. They both loved the ocean. I am sure they would have gotten a kick out of knowing I lent their names to such worthy recipients.”
Match Game (4 points)
This game is fairly straightforward, but easy to get incorrect. Match the name of the yacht owner with the name of the yacht he owns:
Name of Owner Name of Yacht
Daniel Snyder Kismet
Shad Khan Bravo Eugenia
Arthur Blank DreAMBoat
Jerry Jones Lady S
The answer is…
Daniel Snyder owns motor yacht LADY S
Shad Khan owns motor yacht KISMET
Arthur Blank owns motor yacht DreAMBoat
Jerry Jones owns motor yacht BRAVO EUGENIA
Now, let’s take a look at the NFL Owners Superyacht Club.
Did you answer all three questions correctly? If yes, you have 9 points and clearly know way too much trivial information about yachts and NFL yacht owners!!!! Just kidding! At 1-800 Yacht Charters, EVERYONE is a winner! Send an email to us at email@example.com, and we’ll send you a Eco-Hero tote bag and a luxurious champagne-colored computer stylus pen.

When it comes to naming a superyacht, the sources of inspiration seem limitless.
Many owners select the name of their spouse, or their children. Others opt for themes, such as romance and affection. Of course, movie-themed names remain popular as well (e.g. John and Jeanette Staluppi and their James Bond yacht selection including DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, CASINO ROYALE and Benetti yacht SPECTRE, Project FB269.
For the multi-yacht owner of the 83 meter Amels motor yacht HERE COMES THE SUN, the inspiration is musical, and somewhat obvious to most Baby Boomers – songs by The Beatles.
His last two yachts were the 47 meter Heesen yacht LET IT BE and the 65 meter Amels Limited Editions 212 yacht IMAGINE (now renamed re-named INFINITE SHADES).
In a way, the name seems entirely appropriate – this yacht is nothing short of a behemoth, and does seem to be the size of the sun when silhouetted against the evening skyline. The new flagship of the fabled Dutch yard and the first Amels Limited Editions 272, the yacht comes in at 2827 gross tons, more than the 95 meter Lurssen yacht KISMET (2700GT).

Topping a fatherland rival by building the world’s largest yacht wasn’t good enough. Lürssen Yachts gobbles up their leading competitor. The German company takes over the entire operation.
At this time, Bremen-based Lürssen Yachts announces the acquisition of Hamburg’s superyacht builder, Blohm+Voss.
According to Peter Luerssen, Managing Partner, “With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss we are taking over a shipyard with a strategically advantageous location and versatile production facilities. We want to use these facilities to complement our existing refit and repair activities and also to offer our customers an ever better service.”
With the 2013 launch of the world’s largest yacht, the 180 meter motor yacht AZZAM, “The big L” wrestled the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich-owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.
Of the 10 largest yachts in service today, Lürssen has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.
Many Lürssen charter vessels are among, the largest yachts offered for hire. Specificially, 94 meter (308ft) Lürssen yacht Kismet II and 70 meter (230ft) Lurssen motor yacht Martha Ann.

We love to share some guest comments and vid with you. This time, it’s for motor yacht ‘H. We mention 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]

The latest Lürssen shipyard launch is motor yacht LADY KATHRYN V. She is previously known as Project Coco. This yacht is the fifth in a line of boats of the same name. Motoryacht LADY KATHRYN V succeeds a 164′ Wesport.
The Adam Lay interior accommodates 12 charter guests. The master suite is situated on the main deck. There is a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck, and below that are four double cabins on the lower deck.
In conclusion, the owner takes delivery this Summer. Lady Kathryn V will then be available for hire in the Mediterranean. After her first winter season, she moves to the Caribbean.

Management announces the sale of the 68 meter motor yacht KISMET. She is a staple in the French yacht charter marketplace. Built in 2007, she features the charter-friendly layout of Espen Oeino International.
The owner of super yacht KISMET, Floridian Shad Khan, announces a donation of $1 million dollars to help Covid-19 relief efforts.
As a result, the funds will be given to several northeast Florida organizations.
Khan is an avid yachtsman and owner of the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars.
The gifts will be distributed to multiple groups, such as
The Jaguars released a statement by Khan on the team’s website to announce the gift. It reads, in part:
“I want to say thank you to every group or individual who is personally stepping up for the people of Jacksonville during these uncertain times”
Obviously an incredibly generous person. We are so proud to charter his beautiful yacht and to be in the same industry.
Again, Khan owns the 312 foot superyacht KISMET. She is a 2014 Lurssen. Specifically, she accommodates up to 12 guests in 6 staterooms. The yacht employs a crew of 28 attend to the charter guests. The crew members also handle the daily operation of the yacht. In fact, yacht operations include food and beverage service, and all onshore logistics. Common logistics involve tours and event reservations, vehicle transportation, and airport transfers.
The yacht charters for €1,200,000 per week. Her rate includes the yacht, crew, and use of onboard amenities. Also included in rate is use of watertoys. Any local VAT and all running expenses (for instance, food, fuel, bar and dockage) are additional. Eastern and Western Mediterranean are available ports of call for summer 2020.
Multiple islands in the Eastern and Western Med. For example,
It should be noted that Khan plans to make additional contributions as needed. What a generous hero! He is ready to help his fellow Floridians combat the Coronavirus. As of March 30, the state of Florida reports 5705 cases and 77 deaths.
