Is It “So Long” to 85m Motor Yacht Solandge?

Posted on

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?  Is it 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 published at €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.

Jingle Bells – Charter Motor Yacht AXIOMA Slashes Christmas Rate

Posted on

SPECIAL HOLIDAY RATE

One of the largest yachts available for hire has 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%.

 

AXIOMA motoryacht side profile

 

Currently ranked #151 on the list of the world’s largest yachts, super yacht AXIOMA (ex yacht Red Square)  accommodates 12 guests in a master suite, VIP suite, and four guest double cabins, two of which are convertible into twins.

The yacht boasts a beach house-style interior by the legendary designer Alberto Pinto (who sadly passed away before the yacht was launched in 2013).  The interior “wow factor” is off the chain with unique features like an open mezzanine in the main salon, and a media lounge on the owner’s deck.  Exterior amenities are just as amazing, especially the infinity swimming pool, and the large Jacuzzi with a swim-up bar, located on the bridge deck.

Like so many other yachts now focused on the wellness yacht charter concept, the yacht also boasts a full gym, massage room, and steam room…

This stunning superyacht is already reserved 27 Dec, 2016 – 3 Jan, 2017, from St Lucia to Canuan;  thus, the owner would like to secure a charter immediately prior to this booking somewhere in the area of St Lucia.

Kiwi Superyacht Reborn for Inaugural Launch

Posted on

In the hands of a new owner after a devastating onboard fire during her build, a McMullen & Wing 50 meter Diamond-class expedition yacht splashed down in Auckland, New Zealand in January, ready for outfitting and sea trials.

The largest yacht to date built by New Zealand’s McMullen and Wing, the yacht known as superyacht Y/N 1016 continues the distinctive muscular and purposeful appearance as the first yacht in the Diamond Series, the 45 meter South Pacific and Tahiti yacht charter vessel, motor yacht BIG FISH.

Originally to be named motor yacht StarFish, she was commissioned by Richard Beattie, chairman of Aquos Yachts, and the owner of Big Fish.  In August 2012, an early-morning blaze in the shed where StarFish was being built caused significant damage to the nearly 75% completed yacht.  Beattie cut his losses and put the yacht up for sale.  A new owner stepped forward in 2014 to complete the project.

Read how Richard Beattie and Other Megaycht Owners Came Together to Monitor the Earth’s Oceans

Only 18 months behind her original planned launch, project 1016 (ex Project StarFish) will accommodate 10 to 12 guests in five luxurious cabins.  Interior decoration is made up of natural materials, creating a relaxed, modern ambiance. The impressive owner’s suite is located on the bridge deck aft and opens onto a private aft deck, providing exclusive privacy and spectacular views.

Throughout her interior, light, airy spaces will flow onto large external decks on all levels. Bulwark balconies will fold out from her hull, offering the ultimate sunbathing locations suspended over the water. The lowered aft cockpit is a protected area designed for both deep-sea fishing and lounging. In anticipation of future private yacht charter use, an extensive fleet of tenders and toys will also be stored onboard.

After taking delivery in early 2016, the owner will start a global circumnavigation in Auckland before moving on to the South Pacific and the rest of the world.

Saved from the ashes, and with any luck at all, we should see this beautiful phoenix available for charter in 2017…

Newest Entries to the Top 100 World’s Largest Yachts, 2015

Posted on

2015 started out with a forecast of ten brand new superyachts scheduled for completion this year, all of which when launched would be ranked in the, “Top 100 of the World’s Largest Yachts.”

With the year quickly drawing to a close, it turns out 8 of the 10 were completed and launched on schedule – a testament to their builder’s ability to deliver a yacht on schedule (although only the builder and owner know for sure if the yacht was also delivered, “on budget”).

Here are the 8 newest entries to the list of the 2015 world’s largest yachts, along with their position in the top 100:

Rank in

Top 100               Name                                  Length                                 Builder

93                          ROMEA                               81.80m (268’4”)               Abeking & Rasmussen

 

Dutch über-builder Feadship leads the way with three top 100 megayachts, with Germany’s Lurssen Yachts delivering two, including the largest newest yacht launched in 2015 – the 123 meter motor yacht GOLDEN ODYSSEY.

Private yacht charter clients might be disappointed that only one of these new yachts is immediately slated to enter the yacht rental market – the Abeking & Rasmussen yacht ROMEA.  Based in the Med, The Monaco yacht charter vessel has set her 2015 inaugural season rental rate at Euro 875,000 per week [plus running expenses, of course!].

Yacht profile

Feadship and Lurssen enthusiasts don’t despair – these builders have plenty of behemoth yachts available for hire, including the 85.10 meter Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE, and the 81 meter Feadship yacht AIR.
