The biggest race on the F1 circuit is just six weeks away, but there is still time to score a yacht and a berth in the heart of the action.
Rivaling the Super Bowl as a top-tier corporate hospitality venue, dockage at the Monaco Grand Prix is now at a premium, but there is still a great selection of Mediterranean yacht charter vessels available for this ultimate racing experience.
Baglietto yacht APACHE II holds a confirmed berth on the T-Jetty, with excellent views of the course and JumboTron giant video screen.
Sleek and sophisticated, 44 meter motor yacht APACHE II boasts a contemporary interior that comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in five well-appointed cabins. Her roomy sun deck offers 360 degree panoramic views – and the best seat in the house. While at dockside, the crew is happy to welcome up to 40 guests onboard for formal dining, and up to 100 guests for cocktails. Race event rate: €155,000 for 6 days, including berth (fuel, food and drinks extra).
The spacious Proteksan Turquoise super yacht COSTA MAGNA is also available, with dockage on the prestigious Quai des Etats Unis. The 44.5 meter yacht can entertain up to 70 guests for race viewing and 130 guests for cocktail parties. Sleeping accommodations are available for 10 guests in five spacious cabins.
Motor yacht COSTA MAGNA is available for a minimum rental of five days at the rate of €13,700 per day, plus berth (fuel, food and drinks extra).
Taking place since 1929, the Monaco F1 GP is widely considered to be one of the most significant and famous automobile races in the world. The race is held on a narrow course laid out in the streets of Monaco, with several elevation changes, tight corners and a tunnel, making it one of the most challenging tracks on the Formula One circuit. Although average speeds are quite low, the city street circuit remains a dangerous place to race.

We secure a private luxury yacht charter reservation on the 37m motor yacht ELENA NUEVE this week. We receive the charter contract, and management sends us an email touting a big, beautiful new catamaran in his fleet . She is sailing yacht ALLURES.
“Dear Jana, Jim, and Team 1-800 Yacht Charters,
ALLURES is getting ready for a successful charter season in the West Med. Based in the South of France, she is still available in April, May, June and September 2017.
Luxurious charter yacht with impressive deck space and comfort, ALLURES is one of the largest and fastest, all carbon-sail catamaran in the world. She provides a high level of comfort and safety with access to shallow waters.
-24 June to 1 July, Naples/Catania,
-9 to 16 July, Naples/Palermo,
-20 July to 14 August, Bonifacio/Bonifacio,
-16 to 30 August, Bonifacio/Saint-Tropez.
I look forward to receiving your enquiries.
Nicolas knows many of our clients prefer motoryachts for the luxury yacht charter vacations. We are excited to promote high-quality sailing yachts whenever the chance arises. Sail yacht ALLURES is at the top end of sailing yachts in the charter market. Built by Composite Works in France, this is a performance yacht that really, “gets up and goes” when the wind is blowing. If you’re wondering if that means a bumpy ride – put your worries to bed. Catamarans have two hulls which gives them an enormous beam (width). The wider the yacht the more stable the vessel, especially when at anchor.
Of course, at 100 feet, she is a superyacht. Her overall design reflects this pedigree. Allures’ chic Italian interior is brimming with beautiful wood and leather furnishings. She accommodates eight guests in four impressive staterooms. Furthermore, every stateroom has a direct view to the sea.
Our favorite onboard features are the two convertible staterooms. These double cabins can easily become twins (each with single berths). In addition, this unique flexible layout comfortably accommodate charter parties of families, friends and/or couples.
First, she is a performance sailing catamaran with an experienced and friendly crew. Second, Allures has sleek lines, the latest sailing equipment, and Italian interiors with wood and leather. Third, as a catamaran, she has access to very shallow anchorages. Fourth, she is the ultimate in safety and performance. In addition, she features 2 convertible staterooms. Lastly, multiple water toys keep it fun!
For the summer 2017 cruising season, the yacht is offered at different rates. For instance, €60,000 per week plus running expenses for high (July/August), and €50,000 per week for low (June/September) season

We recently welcomed the largest solar-powered boat in the world, MS TÛRANOR. She came to our hometown of Miami, FL. As a result, she made the trip in sixteen months and nearly 30,000 miles. The world’s largest catamaran powered by the sun is nearing the end of her epic, round-the-world odyssey.
She is a pioneer for sustainable energy technology on water. The German-made 115-foot catamaran is MS TÛRANOR. She is also known as yacht PLANETSOLAR. The yacht arrives in Monaco on May 4th – the first superyacht to circumnavigate the world on solar power alone.
A celebration weekend happens in the Hercule harbor in Monaco. After crossing the finish line, the crew, design team, builders, investors and owners will be participating in an official arrival ceremony with Swiss and Monegasque personalities. Several events support the festivities.
Raphaël Domjan of Switzerland conceived PlanetSolar. MS Tûranor’s build is from Kiel, Germany. Solar energy exclusively powers the boat. It draws power from 537 square meters of photovoltaic panels. PlanetSolar is behind many technological advances, especially in the field of composite manufacturing and storage of solar energy.
Follow PlanetSolar on the final leg of her amazing journey by visiting the official website at http://www.planetsolar.org/.
Impressed by the largest solar powered catamaran? In conclusion, look at sail yacht HEMISPHERE. She is 44 meters long (145 ft). Hemisphere is the largest sailing catamaran in the world. She is built specifically for the luxury yacht charter market.
Valentine’s Day. Specifically, the yearly opportunity to profess our love to that special someone in our lives. For many of us, we turn to traditional gifts like chocolate, flowers, or a romantic dinner to express our affection.
Ah, but the uber-wealthy are different. Even gifts of jewelry pale in comparison to the grandiose gestures some HNWI’s (high net-worth individuals) bestow on their significant others and loved ones.
Yep, when it comes to over-the-top, what says “je t’aime mon tresor” more than a gift of a private superyacht???
Of course, the ultimate enhancement to the ultimate gift – naming your yacht to honor the one you love…
In celebration of Valentine’s Day 2016, we share our favorite 5 private yacht charter vessels with names inspired by love. Some names are whimsical and cute, others haughty. Our favorite name, # 1, is simple and oh-so-perfect — boasting the two most famous words uttered by almost every man who understands (and appreciates) who’s really the boss!
5. 4YOU – Imagine the surprise when this owner turned to his wife and handed her the keys to a 180 foot megayacht, aptly named, 4YOU. Launched in 2012, this spectacular yacht from the Amels Limited Edition 180 series was designed by Tim Heywood, and features a stunning modern-chic interior by Laura Sessa Romboli. Up to 12 guests can enjoy a Greek yacht charter vacation, from €280,000 per week
4. DREAM PRINCESS – Sure, lots of guys call their lady a, “Princess.” But a DREAM PRINCESS? That’s ramping it up another notch. A popular yacht for special events (e.g. Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter, MIPIM yacht charter, etc.), this Princess 64 motor yacht is a vessel with a real sense of occasion. She offers exceptional performance and boasts a sleek, sporty profile hiding a spacious three-cabin charter layout. Her interior is light, with elegant details. Rates from €18,000 per week
3. HONEY BEAR – Every once in a while, we find a yacht named by a woman for the man in her life. The 28 meter Sunseeker 90 yacht HONEY BEAR is a fast, fun yacht for sophisticated yet informal Monaco yacht charter holidays. Her modern yet warm interior offers plenty of space for relaxation, and her open deck areas are perfect for enjoying the sunshine. She provides accommodations for 8 guests in 4 staterooms and is priced from €45,000 per week
2. LADY BRIT – there are lots of “Ladies” in the charter fleet, Lady Sheila, Lady Victoria, and more. Still, one stands out for her simple, elegant name – the epitome of European class: LADY BRIT. Surprisingly, the yacht was not named for the owner’s wife, but rather, in honor of his mother. The 207 foot Feadship yacht LADY BRIT offers the ideal platform for a resort-style St Barts Yacht Charter in the Caribbean, as she features a wellness spa, gymnasium with panoramic views, outdoor cinema, and an authentic Finnish sauna with private access to the water. Weekly rates start at $445,000 per week
1. YES DEAR – what man hasn’t uttered those two words to his special someone??? She is a Voyage 580 Virgin Islands catamaran charter vessel. Sail yacht YES DEAR is 58 feet long and 31 feet wide. This is the perfect design for maximum comfort and stability. She features 5 cabins for up to 10 guests. Her weekly rates start at $24,000. Funny side note. Her dinghy is named, “No Dear.”

If you owned the massive motor yacht SHERAKHAN, the answer is — BOTH!
Originally built in 1965, the current owner bought the commercial vessel in 2005 and undertook a massive refit – basically gutting the entire ship from bow to stern and rebuilt her into a yacht charter vessel with accommodations for 26 guests (most yachts are limited to 12 or fewer). The full rebuild featured all new plumbingelectrical systems, air conditioning, and generators.It also included a beautiful new paint job – a deep blue hull, with a white superstructure.
Fast forward to 2017, and the owner decided it was time for another refit. All new decks were installed, along with new soft fabrics throughout the guests areas and cabins, and a complete overhaul of all major equipment in the engine room.
As he did in 2005, the owner completely repainted the superyacht charter vessel – this time a clean, crisp white, with subtle grey accents.
The expedition style yacht is available in the Caribbean and will remain there through April. In the summer, the yacht will relocate to the Mediterranean (e.g. Monaco yacht charter or Grand Prix formula 1 races, etc.) for the summer.
So what do you think? Do you think she looks better in blue or in white?
