After this weekend’s 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Feadship motor yacht JANA will hoist her anchor and reposition for the winter season in the Maldives. 

Expected to arrive in mid December, the classic 46-meter Feadship yacht charter vessel is currently available for a Christmas reservation. 

Motoryacht JANA will remain in the Maldives through mid April and joins a growing list of yachts for hire in this Indian Ocean paradise. 

Other megayachts committed to the winter season in the Maldives include the 64 meter Benetti motoryacht SILVER ANGEL, sail yacht PERLA DEL MARE, the 60 meter motor yacht ARKLEY, and the 150 foot motoryacht MOECCA.

Serving as a privately-chartered spectator yacht at this year’s Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi, Feadship yacht JANA will complete one more charter in Abu Dhabi in November before embarking for the Indian Ocean.

The prospect of offering alternative destinations for winter charters is exciting for JANA Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  “Our team is committed to expanding the destination options available to our clients,” says Sheeder.  “A winter holiday in the warm waters of the Maldives is an excellent alternative to the traditional Caribbean yacht charter vacation.”

The Maldives offer visitors the chance to enjoy crystal clear water and sugar white, sandy beaches.   Located in the Indian Ocean,  the Republic of Maldives is an island nation formed by a double-wrapped chain of twenty-six (26) atolls. The winter water temperature is amazingly warm, about 31 degrees celsius (87 degrees fahrenheit), and the opportunities for snorkeling and watersports seem endless. There are hundreds of reefs, many in the shallow waters of enclosed lagoons.

We hope to add even more megayachts to the growing list available this winter in the Maldives.

Will Oceanco yacht AMARA Join the Luxury Yacht Charter Fleet in 2019?

THE NEWS

Danish builder Oceanco unveiled their superyacht project, the 120 meter yacht AMARA, at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS).

 

The CONCEPT

As part of the yard’s continuing effort to push the boundaries of design, Oceanco yacht AMARA showcases the builder’s new “lifestyle philosophy” concept which places great emphasis on a family oriented style of living.  Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht’s designer, describes the resort-style concept of the project: “…the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.”

 

The AMENITIES

Our quick review of the yacht’s initial technical specs discovered an interior with a contemporary style – with natural tones and light woods, designed to embrace the ‘resort’ lifestyle.  Plenty of wide open spaces and natural light lend to the relaxed atmosphere.

Onboard amenities include:

 

  • 2 theatres
  • 2 Majilis-style areas (Majilis means “a place of sitting” in Arabic)
  • Climbing wall
  • Upper deck waterfall that flows into the main deck swimming pool
  • Wellness areas on the lower deck, including Hammam steam bath and a beauty salon
  • Water slide
  • Circular relaxation pod that suspends over the water  [how unique is this!?]Circular pad with pillow suspended over the side of the yacht - new relaxation feature on AMARA

 

The LUXURY YACHT CHARTER QUESTION

With a solid reputation for building luxury yacht charter superyachts such as 56 meter The WELLESLEY, and the massive 95 meter Oceanco yacht INDIAN EMPRESS, we’re already licking our chops to be the first to offer the 120 meter motor yacht AMARA to our clients.

According to our company president, Jana Sheeder, we may have to wait a while.

“As we are seeing with the 70 meter Heesen yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA, also a new concept in resort-style yachts, I believe yacht AMARA will enjoy extensive private use by her owner prior to becoming available for charter.  The good news is that we continue to witness growth in the experiential travel sector, especially with an emphasis on wellness yacht charter vacations.  The demand for superyachts with resort facilities such as spas and beauty salons is strong, and the eventual owner of AMARA will be in a solid position to capitalize on this growing business trend.”  

 

THE PRESS RELEASE

Here’s the Danish builder’s press release via PRNewswire:

Oceanco Unveils Amara – A 120-Meter ‘Resort’ Yacht

________________________________________

ALBLASSERDAM, The Netherlands, February 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

Amara, Oceanco’s newly designed and engineered 120-meter private yacht concept, designed in collaboration with Sam Sorgiovanni Designs was unveiled by His Excellency Saeed Harib, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, Vice President and Chairman of Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi, and Senior Advisor to the Dubai International Boat Show.

Oceanco revealed the lifestyle philosophy of creating a yacht designed for extended families and friends. Amara provides unparalleled living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests. The contemporary interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics blend to create an inviting and natural environment.

“In designing the exterior lines of Amara, I wanted to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal,” says Sorgiovanni. Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions. Most importantly, the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.

The lower level deck opens up to reveal an expansive beach club resort that offers 3-way access to the sea; port starboard and aft. Also on this deck is a comprehensive wellness area with banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and a cinema experience for 16 persons.

A waterfall from the upper deck cascades down into the main deck swimming pool. And the main deck is party central, featuring a stunning pool bar, opening balconies and large entertainment areas.

The upper deck has an outstanding owner’s apartment with a private plunge pool and open-air aft deck dining for 20+ people.

The gym with a capital view is located on the bridge deck. For intimate gatherings there are two Majilis-style areas (meaning, “a place of sitting” in Arabic, per Wikipedia) aboard. In addition to the cinema on the lower deck, there is a quixotic cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck. For young guests and those young at heart, there are accommodations for fun sports equipment such as a climbing wall and water slides.

Amara reflects Oceanco’s applied evolutionary thinking, allowing clients to shape their way of life onboard. Amara will take you from the crystal waters of the Maldives to the iconic Caribbean islands, from the ancient marvels of the Mediterranean to the golden sands of Sri Lanka, in privacy, safety, and tranquility.
