3 to Watch: Luxury Yacht Charter Maven Shares Hottest Yacht Construction Trends for 2017 & Beyond

Posted on

With her repeat clients pushing for the newest yachts with unique amenities, Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, understands the need to keep her finger on the pulse of the latest yachting design trends.

Sheeder shares with us three over-the-top design trends she has noticed on upcoming new builds and recently-launched superyachts:

 

BALCONIES:

 

OKTO superyacht balcony terrace

Long a design feature in upscale villas and resort suites, the use of balconies (or “terraces”) is the ideal way to integrate interior  and exterior areas.  This amenity has now caught a foothold in superyacht design.  Builders are adding balconies adjacent to interior dining rooms, beach clubs, and most impressively, off of master cabins. 66m ISA motor yacht OKTO, for example, incorporates a private balcony in her full beam master suite. The hydraulic balcony is  controlled by the guests at the simple touch of a button (a distinct advantage over earlier generation balconies on older yachts that required the assistance of the crew to open and close). The balcony comes with an air curtain to keep the interior spaces cool, while having the balcony open to the ocean.

 

POOLS:

No, not Jacuzzi-style spa tubs – they are still an important superyacht amenity as well.  We’re talking about cool, fresh water pools, large enough to frolic with the kids on a warm summer day (or swim in place with the aid of current-generating waterjets).

When you’re anchored in a cove near Ibiza on a hot July afternoon, a dip in cool freshwater is a pleasant alternative to the salty, warm ocean.  Great examples of Balearic island yacht charter vessels with pools are 67.5m motor yacht ICON, and 108m Pride Mega Yachts 2018 motor yacht TOMORROW.

 

 

WELLNESS AREAS:

The interest in wellness yacht charter vacations continues to grow, with more and more clients requesting yachts that offer amenities for mind, body, and soul.  Saunas, steam rooms, gymnasiums, quiet yoga areas, as well as onboard nutritionists, beauticians, and massage therapists are a big draw.  Sheeder believes yachts that cater to mindfulness and overall wellness will be in great demand in 2017 and beyond.  Examples are the 85m Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE and  Tankoa yacht SUERTE (69m).

 

It’s time to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. Let 1-800 Yacht Charters Deliver the Superyacht Experience to you, your family and friends.  Call 305-253-7245 or email info@1800yachtcharters.com.

70 Meter Superyacht Offers Incentives to Spur Charters

Posted on

The massive new 70 meter motor yacht HIGH POWER III (ex-Numptia) has been continually in the news since her late 2011 launch. The yacht has gained notice for her award-winning chef, Heather Kaniuk, as well as her unique and elegant wellness spa deck.

Now comes word the Caribbean yacht charter vessel hopes to lure more US-dollar business, by combining a rate reduction with complimentary extra charter days.

Effective immediately – for each week of charter booked, the customer will receive an additional 2 FREE DAYS OF CHARTER.  Thus, charterers can pay for 7 days and receive two more complimentary days onboard Rossi Navi luxury motor yacht HIGH POWER III (ex-Numptia).

In addition to the free days, the yacht has converted her rates – from 490,000 EUROS per week to 490,000 US DOLLARS per week.  The effect of the foreign currency conversion results in a real dollar savings of $144,000 per week – the equivalent of a 23% price break

All rates are plus running expenses.

“This foreign currency conversion will have a special appeal to our US-based clients who have seen the value of the dollar pale in comparison to the Euro for the past 8 years,”  says yacht maven Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters. “Not only does this mitigate the loss of purchasing power of the foreign currency translation, but it provides a significant incentive to book this yacht at a deeply-discounted price.”

The Italian-built superyacht features accommodations for 12 guests. Onboard amenities include an elevator between all decks, fireplace, super inflatable slide, and a massive 3D big screen TV.   High Power III’s unique spa deck offers a fully-equipped gym, steam room, sauna, beauty salon, and massage room, plus forward exterior bar & dining areas on the spa deck to create the ultimate at-sea oasis.
