From September 28 through October 1, some of the most expensive and largest yachts for charter will come together at Port Hercules, Monaco for the 2016 installment of the Monaco Yacht Show.
Three of the largest private yacht charter vessels offered for hire by 1-800 Yacht Charters will be in attendance. Here’s a quick glimpse (please try not to drool):
Tankoa motor yacht SUERTE
Imagine any over-the-top amenity, and chances are this 227 foot superyacht has it. The penthouse master stateroom offers 180 degree views, a private study, and private deck with a hot tub (of course). Other guests who wish to soak shouldn’t feel snubbed – there’s another hot tub with a waterfall located on the aft sundeck. [Rates from €525,000 per week; Caribbean in winter and Mediterranean in summer.]
International Shipyard Ancona yacht OKTO
At nearly 218 feet, this vessel is more luxury day spa than yacht. Built for wellness yacht charters, she features a massage/beauty/therapy room (a beautician and massage therapist are part of the crew), guest elevator, indoor cinema room, and a 20ft swimming pool (salt or/ fresh water, heated or cooled, with contra flow current). [Rates from $400,0000 per week; Caribbean in winter and Mediterranean in summer.]
Lurssen motor yacht MARTHA ANN
Make sure your feet are clean when you walk across the interior carpets – they’re silk and valued at $17 million dollars. This 230 foot yacht offers 7 guest cabins, and a classical-style interior by famous designer Francois Zuretti. A large Jacuzzi “Swim Spa” on the upper aft deck double as a lap pool, with an adjacent wet bar with 11 stools – 4 of which are underwater in the spa. [Rates from €600,0000 per week; Caribbean in winter and Mediterranean in summer.]
In conclusion, we help plan The Superyacht Experience™ for you.

Readers ask for more information on superyacht Air – the largest Feadship offered for rent – so we deliver! In the past, we profiled the launch of motor yacht AIR, which prompted discussion.
Superyacht AIR surpassed all expectations during her sea trials and her owner is scheduled to take delivery in just under two weeks. Shortly after, she will depart Holland and head straight to Monte Carlo to undertake her July Mediterranean yacht charter booking commitments.
Joining a fleet of the largest yachts for hire, the gigayacht still has open charter dates in the months of August and September. At the conclusion of the summer season, the yacht will re-position across the Atlantic and join the St. Martin yacht charter fleet.
Feadship yacht AIR is helmed by co-captains Stephen Warren and Mark Finch and boasts a young and enthusiastic crew, including an excellent young British chef, new to the industry. They are all looking forward to a spectacular season.
The yacht features a sleek, elegant exterior with a unique matte black steel hull. The minimalist interior, created by Remi Tessier, is stunning. Amenities include an 8 meter-long pool located on the main deck forward, and a sun deck with full gym and Jacuzzi. Other features include an elevator to all decks, massage and steam rooms, and a fully-certified commercial helicopter pad (helipad).
BE THE FIRST to charter this beautiful new yacht this summer. The weekly rental rate is €750,000 plus expenses. Contact our office for photos and additional details at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/.

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.
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!
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.“
“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.“
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.
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%.
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!

Word recently came in that one of the largest private luxury yacht charter vessels in the market was just sold.
The 85 meter (279 foot) spectacular Lurssen motor yacht SOLANDGE has been sold. The deal closed on March 22, and the new owner has already taken delivery. The buyer was represented by Moran Yacht and Ship, and terms of the sale have not been released. She was listed for sale by Moran at an asking price of €155,000,000 (yes, boys and girls, that IS 6 zeros!)
The massive yacht was scheduled to participate in the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 23 -26, 2017. Needless to say, the new owner saw no need to put the yacht on display, instead choosing to enjoy his new watertoy.
Launched in 2013, Solandge Lurssen motor yacht features the sleek exterior styling of naval architect Espen Øino, with a rich, rather eclectic interior design by Aileen Rodriguez.
“She is an amazing luxury yacht charter vessel,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “Imagine a floating resort with a gym, spa, saunas, and cinema. There’s even a DJ booth on the party deck, and a 5.5 meter swimming pool on the aft. Best of all, this floating spa is private – only you and your family and friends are onboard!”
Yachtsmen and -women the world over want to know — will we be waving goodbye to Lurssen yacht Solandge…or will she remain in the charter fleet??? Is it Adios – or just Hasta luego? Do we say Tchau – or just Ate mais, beijo? Is it Ciao — or Addio?
Often, a new owner will remove the yacht from the private yacht charter marketplace, so he and his family and friends can enjoy her for extended cruising.
“For now, she remains listed for hire, but that could change,” says Sheeder. “Of course, for the benefit of our clients, we certainly hope she remains in the marketplace. Only a handful of the world’s largest yachts are available for hire, and motoryacht Solandge stands at or near the top of that elite list.”
Solandge accommodates 12 guests in a 7 elegant stateroom configuration. Her weekly rate is €1,000,000 plus running expenses. Her current schedule has her available for hire in the Caribbean through Spring, then in the Mediterranean for the summer.

One of the largest yachts available for hire makes an announcement. Specifically, she cut her Caribbean premium-season rate for Christmas week by €60,000!
The 72.5 meter Dunya Yachts motor yacht AXIOMA is currently open for Christmas week, preferably in the Windward islands of the Caribbean. To entice a reservation, the owner has lowered the rate from €550,000 per week to €490,000 per week – a savings of more than 10%.
She is currently ranked #151 on the list of the world’s largest yachts. Super yacht AXIOMA (ex Red Square) accommodates 12 guests in a master suite. In addition, she offers a VIP suite, and four guest double cabins. Moreover, two of the doubles are convertible to twins.
The yacht boasts a beach house-style interior. It is created by the legendary designer Alberto Pinto. He sadly passed away before the yacht was launched in 2013. The interior “wow factor” is off the chain. For instance, it features an open mezzanine in the main salon, and a media lounge on the owner’s deck. Exterior amenities are just as amazing. In specific, the infinity swimming pool. Additionally, the large Jacuzzi with a swim-up bar, located on the bridge deck, is also noteworthy.
Like so many other yachts, she focuses on the wellness yacht charter concept. Furthermore, the yacht boasts a full gym, massage room, and steam room.
This stunning superyacht is already reserved 27 Dec, 2016 – 3 Jan, 2017. She plans to travel from St Lucia to Canuan. Her owner desires a charter immediately prior, specifically, somewhere in the area of St Lucia.

Many of her clients are still onboard their yachts enjoying their 2013 year-end St Barts yacht charter vacations. Jana Sheeder, President and Co-owner of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters comments. She takes a few minutes to reflect on the year that was (and offers us a glimpse of what’s to come in 2014.
Q: The charter industry still seems to be recovering from the global economic downturn of the past couple years. Did 2013 represent an uptick in the volume of charter business?
Sheeder: “Our research indicates 2013 showed significant improvement in charter revenues when compared to both 2011 and 2012. Many newly-built yachts enter the charter marketplace in 2013. These are builds that had stalled while under construction during the height of the downturn. As the global economy began to pick up, delayed construction projects commenced.
The result is a beautiful new fleet of superyacht charter vessels that hit the seas in time for the 2013 summer Mediterranean charter season.”
Q: Did the year end on an uptick?
Sheeder: “We haven’t seen any industry data yet, so we can’t speak for our competitors. We can tell you in terms of the Caribbean yacht charter marketplace, SailAway (1-800 Yacht Charters) had its strongest December in over 3 years. While the inquiries for smaller vessels did not grow, our bookings of superyachts – some of the largest yachts in the world – increased significantly.
Presently, we have the two largest charter vessels currently docked in St Barts for 9 night charters – motor yacht LAUREL (240 feet, $525,000 per week) and the Lurssen yacht charter motoryacht MARTHA ANN (230 feet, 600,000 EUROS per week).”
Q: What was the biggest change you witnessed in 2013 in the charter industry?
Sheeder: “I would have to say the ending of VAT exempt charters in France. For many years, our clients enjoyed St. Tropez yacht charters and summer vacations along the Cote d’Azur, free of the burden of VAT. That all changed in the summer of 2013 when the French yacht charter VAT went into effect. As of July 15, 2013, charterers can expect to pay an additional 9.8% for their Côte d’Azur yacht charter.”
Q: Are you optimistic as you look ahead to 2014?
Sheeder: “Our team is extremely optimistic as we focus on incremental growth in 2014. During the economic downturn, while many of our competitors hunkered down to ride out the storm, we took a contrarian approach. We focused our efforts on increased marketing. Our strategy was simple – stay in touch with existing clients and prospects. We wanted to be “easy to find” once the economy turned around.
Internally, we call it our “Tip of the Tongue” project. Clients had tightened their belts during the downturn, and we were committed to be the brand they remembered (always on the tip of the tongue) when they were ready to loosen their discretionary income belts again!
Now that 2014 is here, we are excited to announce that, for instance
The sky’s the limit! It will be an exciting, challenging, and awe-inspiring year!”
