Luxury Lurssen Yacht Headed for Charter

Posted on

Lurssen Yacht ACE

For years, the name Lürssen has been synonymous with some of the most luxurious, and certainly the largest yachts available for charter.  Mammoth-sized vessels such as the 70-meter motor yacht MARTHA ANN and the 60-meter motor yacht HUNTRESS (x-SOLEMATES) are testaments to the 130 yr old German shipbuilder’s dedication to craftsmanship and timeless elegance.

The latest launch by the acclaimed builder is no exception.  Lurssen motor yacht ACE has the distinction of being the first superyacht to splash down in 2012.  She measures 87 meters and left the company’s shipyard in Rendsburg on January 9th. The superyacht by Andrew Winch Design is magnificent.  Her exterior is both unique and instantly recognizable.

This is the unanswered, million-dollar question.  Will motor yacht ACE enter the luxury yacht charter market in 2012?

Stay tuned…

Miami Superyacht Charter Marina Rebrands

Posted on

ISLAND GARDENS MARINA NEWS

Miami’s premier superyacht marina, Island Gardens Deep Harbour, is under new management. The “upgrade” in management, in our opinion, is long overdue.

 

WHAT IS THE NEW NAME?

The new name for the Miami Superyacht Marina is Yacht Haven Grande Miami at Island Gardens.  The marina opened in 2016 and is the annual home of the SuperYacht Miami Show each February.

 

ABOUT IGY MARINAS

Island Global Yachting (also known as IGY Marinas) will operate the rebranded Miami marina.  This destination offers 50 superyacht berths – for yachts up to a maximum length of 550ft.  In-slip fueling is available. High-power electrical service is also available.

 

LOCATION OF SUPERYACHT MARINA

The marina is located on Watson Island.  The island is ideally located between Miami Beach to the east and downtown Miami to the westIndeed, the views of the Miami skyline are postcard-perfect.  The proximity to trendy area hotspots is unbeatable. This deep-water marina is always our first choice for our Miami yacht charter clients.  Nevertheless, the marina was less than ideal for the yacht crews as they awaited the arrival of our charter guests.  Specifically, the marina lacked a captain and crew lounge.  Furthermore, customs and immigration assistance was sketchy at best.

 

MARINA AMENITIES

IGY has resolved these issues.  There is now a crew lounge, as well as a conference room.  Additionally, concierge services are available including valet and laundry/dry cleaning.  On-site dining is also available.   In fact, the newly re-opened dock-side café, aptly named, “The Deck” is described by Forbes as “Miami’s Hottest New Restaurant.”

 

MARINA SERVICES

We’re excited to take advantage of the new services and amenities.  Apprehension gives way to anticipation, as we await the upcoming Superyacht Miami show (February 2021).  We are unsure as to whether the show will go on or be well-attended in 2021.  In specific, Covid, the pandemic, the Coronavirus changed the landscape of events.  What’s exciting about the show? As an example, in the past, we transported prospective clients to the show via yacht tenders.  The car parking lot was poorly maintained.  We found it simpler, cleaner, more in tune with the theme, AND more fun to arrive via boat.  Arrival by car is once again an option, with IGY concierge services in place.

SUPERYACHTS IN ATTENDANCE

Many of the Miami superyacht charter vessels we represent attend this yacht show.  In fact, February weather is ideal for our company President Jana Sheeder to shoot yacht inspection videos of our favorite superyachts [such as Benetti yacht 11.11 and Lurssen yacht Martha Ann.]

We’re excited to welcome IGY Marinas to Miami.  Moreover, we look forward to commencing more Miami superyacht charter vacations from this rebranded location.
