Call it, “Life imitating art.” They were under siege by a great white shark in the 1975 film, JAWS. Actor Roy Scheider’s character exclaimed, ‘We’re gonna need a bigger boat.’
Obviously the film’s director, Steven Spielberg, took that sentiment to heart. His 282 foot superyacht is up for sale. It will be replaced with an even larger vessel.
Oceanco 2010 Spielberg yacht SEVEN SEAS lived up to its name. The famous director, his wife Kate Capshaw, and their seven children made it happen. They took the yacht on a 30,000-mile round-the-world cruise.
Over the years, many famous Hollywood celebrities have been guests onboard the yacht. For instance, Gyneth Paltrow and Leonardo DiCaprio. The UK’s Daily News wrote an article. A friend of the director said, “Steven didn’t realize how much he’d enjoy cruising the ocean. Now he’d like to spend more time exploring the seas, and bring a few friends along for the ride. So he’s upgrading to a bigger yacht.”
The yacht is sometimes available for hire. This season’s charter rate in the Mediterranean is $1.2 million per week.
“She has always been a favorite charter yacht,” says Jana Sheeder, President and yacht charter Maven of 1-800 Yacht Charters.
If you’re considering renting the yacht this summer, you might have to wait until September, as the legendary director and his family have spent a considerable portion of their summer vacation onboard, and were recently spotted taking in the sites of Portofino, Italy. Even the family dog is along for the ride.

Word comes from sail yacht VERTIGO. The yacht will accept charters in some exotic areas. Specifically, Patagonia and Antarctica yacht charter vacations, starting February 2016. Rates are set at Euro 295,000 per week plus running expenses for maximum 12 guests.
Monaco yacht charter season is complete, therefore the luxury sailing yacht enjoyed the month of October in Singapore for maintenance work. Immediately prior to her journey to the southern hemisphere in November.
She is built by Alloy Yachts and designed by Philippe Briand. The 67 meter yacht VERTIGO is the largest sailing yacht built in the southern hemisphere.
Vertigo carries and affords multiple features and amenities. For instance, loft-style interiors, custom-designed by Christian Liaigre and an oversized Jacuzzi hot tub with retractable sunpads. In addition, there are bimini covers, and glass screens on the air-conditioned deck. Additionally, she has a midarette gymnasium with direct sea access and an open-air cinema screen. Ready for some fun? Watertoys include 4 tenders, and importantly, an 8 meter Limo tender with removable roof. Not to be outdone, sailing dinghies, kayaks, paddleboards, scuba equipment, inflatables, and towable toys join the fun.
We find the idea of a Patagonia yacht charter immensely intriguing. It is a sparsely populated area. Specifically located at the southern tip South America. The western coastline belongs to Chile, and the eastern side is part of Argentina. The opportunities for exploration and adventure are numerous, as this region comprises the southernmost portion of the Andes mountains. Just east of the mountains, there is great bio-diversity with deserts, steppes, and grasslands. The western coast of Patagonia borders the Pacific ocean, and the eastern coast borders the Atlantic ocean.

Our friend, James, manager of motor yacht DOUBLE DOWN, dropped us an email last week. He knows we are big fans of this 65 meter Codecasa. James seemed excited to share the news about the superyacht and her newest watertoy.
We were certainly intrigued. A multi-repeat client of ours enjoyed 10 days exploring Greece onboard this spectacular yacht. He raved about the vessel’s condition, amenities, and the crew’s outstanding silver-service.
“DOUBLE DOWN has a magnificent new towed tender for the Mediterranean season – a 42ft (12.8m) MTI with centre console and 4 x 300 HP engines,” wrote James.
“Wow!” we emailed in response. “What year and what does she look like?”
James replied, “She is in fact a 2015. Silver with black highlights on the hull. Black Mercury outboards. White radar dome is now painted grey.”
James was correct – we ARE excited! Performance-style tenders have replaced on-deck Jacuzzi tubs as the “must-have” amenity for many of our private luxury yacht charter clients. The days of hopping in the “dinghy” are long gone. As one of our clients explained to us, “I don’t pull up with my wife to Joe’s Stone Crab restaurant on South Beach in a Kia, so why would I come ashore in St. Tropez in an inflatable RIB tender?”
The MTI V-42 center console tender added to the stable of watertoys onboard Codecasa motor yacht DOUBLE DOWN is simply a beast. With quad 300hp power, this 42 ft tender can cruise at 40mph, and hit top speeds in excess of 70mph. The tender’s unique hull design yields straight, stable handling at all speeds.
Jana Sheeder, our company President, explains why this matters:
“A fast tender is an important component of a private yacht charter vacation, especially in remote areas, like the Ionian islands of Greece. If the seas get rough while taking charter guests sightseeing, the MTI V-42 design keeps the bow high in both head and following seas, and the tender can easily knock down big swells. In simple terms, this means a dry ride in extreme conditions.”
Indeed ride and performance are important, but so are luxurious amenities and comfort. The seats are quite comfy for long-range cruising with the double-wide forward lounge the most comfortable. Speakers seem to be everywhere on this tender, so listening to your favorite tunes is a breeze, even with the engines at full throttle.
Captain Charles and his crew of 17 are currently enjoying yacht DOUBLE DOWN in the summer Monaco yacht charter season. To kick off the season, the yacht secured a berth in Monaco at the Monaco Yacht Club for client who were interested in a Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter. They are on the ball! With 8 large guest staterooms, this 65 meter superyacht boasts excellent flexibility for guest sleeping arrangements.
It’s hard to imagine, but the perfect yacht for glamorous special events and summer private luxury yacht charter cruising in the Mediterranean is now even more appealing thanks to her newly-added 42ft high performance tender…
Come enjoy The Superyacht Experience in the Mediterranean as only 1-800 Yacht Charters can deliver. Text DOUBLE DOWN to 305-720-7245 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to charter this incredible yacht.

The yacht spends time in the Med. The sleek black-hulled superyacht owned by Roberto Cavalli often enjoyed by the Italian designer. In addition, his family and a handful of his closest friends, also enjoy the superyacht.
Cavalli Sells the yacht. The boat is originally named motor yacht RC. After a two year major interior refit, the vessel reemerges as Baglietto motor yacht ABILITY. The summer 2016 season will mark the first time the well-known yacht is available for private luxury yacht charter rental.
The new owner pays homage to Cavalli. The yacht enjoys a signature refit by interior design artist Mary Georgiou. She uses exotic prints. The fashion designer’s former yacht now radiates modern Italian style. Décor borders on excess. She features such items as flamboyant textiles, gold leaf lamps, and African tribal and Grecian art. A touch of abstract art here and there ties the scheme together as sophisticated and modern. Rich wood floors and furniture, along with the abundant use of animal prints and faux fur offer warmth to the yacht’s sleek, angular lines.
Accommodations for 10 guests are offered in 5 cabins, including a master stateroom on the main deck, and 4 guest cabins below deck.
Quickly zipping from port to port is a breeze on yacht ABILITY. How about breakfast in Genoa, and lunch at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Sardinia? While itineraries like this are beyond the same-day reach of most superyachts, powerful waterjet drive engines propel this bullet-looking yacht at speeds in excess of 30 knots.
If exotic couture is your thing, the Cavalli-inspired motor yacht ABILITY is the perfect vessel for your upcoming summer Italy yacht charter adventure.
In conclusion, we represent over 100 private luxury charteryachts. Our Team at 1-800 Yacht Charters accommodates every budget. To plan your Côte d’Azur getaway, contact us at 305-720-7245, email email@example.com, or submit our online form here.

FEADSHIP. The answer is the radical 70 meter Feadship motoryacht JOY.
What do you get when… Merge these items. The vision of a new yacht owner who has never owned a boat. The talents of Europe’s leading design studios. Holland’s premier yacht builder.
This beauty launched in July. She is the latest creation by Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards. Superyacht JOY’s owner is a young American from New York. She is not only the first yacht he has ever built. She is the first yacht he has ever owned.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, commented on how the owner’s lack of involvement in the yachting industry led to the creation of a unique vessel, unlike any other yacht in the 70 meter range: “You take an ambitious, youthful person, who has no pre-conceived bias as to what is expected when you design and build a superyacht, and you open the door to a fresh perspective on how a yacht can reflect the owner’s vision of what The Superyacht Experience can be.”
At the commencement of the project, the owner’s brief was simple and clear. He brims with the optimism of youth. “Create something totally different to every other yacht.”
Recognizing the need to bring a fresh approach to the entire project, Feadship reached out to designers never before retained. For the avant-garde exterior, they turned to the design studio of Bannenberg & Rowell. Interior architecture is by Studio Indigo. Visually, superyacht JOY looks like no other. The wide walkways and flow between the interior and exterior spaces are without precedent on superyachts of this size. Dickie Bannenberg comments. “You will see there are a lot of sculpted and rather complex surfaces that give the design a very unique look.”
Of course, crafting the fascinating concave shapes in the yacht’s superstructure presented challenges to the builder. The launch ceremony, as always, is grandiose. Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuy comments as always. “JOY was an incredibly complicated boat to build with so many shapes and lines. We are very grateful to the fairing gods at Feadship. Also, to all the other craftsmen who have showcased their skills on such a unique boat.”
The proud new owner is equally pleased. The results of the challenging build amaze. “Studio Indigo has worked amazingly hard to produce such a gorgeous design with an incredible focus on detail. I’m also delighted with Bannenberg & Rowell’s sleek and progressive profile that reflects my desire to go forward into the future.”
Joy’s name reflects the owner’s joyous enthusiasm for life. M0reover, the opportunities for self-growth and exploration. These things that only time aboard a yacht can bring. The owner reflected on a recent visit he made to New York’s Central Park. “When I saw the statue of Columbus it reminded me of how much joy this explorer felt when he first saw land. Today is my moment of joy as something I have long dreamt about has come to light. I’m incredibly happy and sincerely grateful to Feadship and all the other team members who made this happen.”
Sheeder is thrilled with the wellness yacht charter potential of the yacht.
“The mix of spa-like amenities is amazing. From her Jacuzzi sun deck, to the massage room. To the ocean-level beach club. Where else can you exercise in a gym with panoramic views of the sea? After which, rest and reflect in a minimalist interior with textures and colors? All of these designs to invoke feelings of tranquility and wellness?”
“In a sea of cookie-cutter designed boats, this is a transcendent yacht that will quickly set a new standard in the charter market.”
In conclusion, rates for a St Martin yacht charter in winter start at $600,000 per week. Rates for summer, 2017 Monaco yacht charters start at €600,000 per week. Charter superyacht JOY through 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/

Don’t ask me to accurately describe the new exterior color scheme of super yacht POLAR STAR. Either way, I just love it!
For the past 12 seasons, the 63 meter yacht has traveled around the Mediterranean each summer. She travels to the Caribbean in the winter. This pretty lady is instantly recognizable with her striking deep blue hull. At this time, an extensive 6-month refit in Spain is complete. It includes a 3 meter swim platform extension. Lürssen private yacht charter vessel now turns her image on its head.
The blue color is no more! She now wears a shade of white…or is it grey…? Hmmm.
Immediately after the refit, Charl van Rooy, editor of Superyacht Times described the new exterior colors as, “…military light-grey.” Fast-forward to this week, and van Rooy now says it’s a, “…light sand coloured paint scheme.” In fairness to van Rooy, it’s not his fault – the colors are subtle and faint, and depending upon the sunlight, and refection of the water, it does appear to be different shades of off-white.
That, of course, is the point. The owner was looking for something fresh – a new image for an iconic yacht that has visually dominated the Monaco yacht charter market for more than a decade.
If you’ll be in the South of France this summer, keep an eye open for Lürssen yacht POLAR STAR as she charts a new course and showcases her new colors!
We’ll revisit the yacht’s refit in another blog – coming soon. Until then, if you are interested in The Superyacht Experience™ in the Med on this or another Lürssen (or Benetti or Feadship or Abeking & Rasmussen or…) yacht charter vessel, visit our selection of Mediterranean yachts for charter at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/monaco-yacht-charters/ today!
