90M motoryacht NERO and other luxury yacht charter vessels lauded for green practices

Posted on


The Charter Yacht Brokers Association is CYBA.  They announce 2017 winners of their campaign.  This is the annual “Going Green To Save The Blue” cause.  The crew onboard superyacht NERO places in the “Designer Water” contest.  The contest recognizes crews of luxury yacht charter vessels.  This award goes to crews acknowledging their “yacht-made” water. This is an effort to reduce.  Disposable plastic water bottle use on yachts must decrease.

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and a CYBA member, explains the program. The underlying message is unquestionably urgent

“Importantly, the campaign is designed to encourage yacht owners and crews to reduce, and eventually forego, the use of plastic water bottles by both the crews and the onboard luxury yacht charter guests.  The goal is to raise awareness as to the massive volume of water bottles that are consumed during charters, and the impact disposable plastic has in our landfills and more importantly, our oceans.”



The “Designer Water” contest is annual.  It occurs at the opening of the Caribbean yacht charter winter/spring season.  At this time, the season sees more than a dozen private yacht charter vessels.  In addition, crews showcase their “flavored” waters.  Specifically, the waters generate from onboard watermakers that convert seawater into clean, safe drinking water.

This year’s winners are  first, 111 foot sailing yacht REE for Hibiscus Martini Water.  Second, 183 foot sailing yacht ROSEHEARTY wins for Moranga-infused Detoxifying Water.  Third, 265 foot mega yacht NERO wins for Coriander and Passionfruit Water.



It should be noted that the CYBA campaign, “Going Green To Save The Blue,” strategizes dually .  It encourages yacht owners and crews to offer eco-friendly options.  Private yacht charter guests participate in this sustainable initiative.  Hopefully, the guests return home with a clearer understanding of the impact of plastic pollution. In addition, how they can incorporate simple changes in their daily lives.  They can make a difference in safeguarding our environment for future generations.

“The ‘Going Green’ campaign highlights the numerous opportunities and options available to our private yacht charter clients, yacht owners, and crews – from avoiding plastic water bottles, to using green cleaning products, reef-friendly sunscreens, and solar panels for energy,” says Sheeder. “We congratulate motor yacht NERO and her owner and crew and all of the other Caribbean yacht charter teams for their commitment to the long-term health of our oceans and the marine environment.”

Our charter department just received word.  The owner of motor yacht NERO has issued a change of winter plans.

There is a green hilly area behind her. The sky is blue and has fluffy clouds.  She has a black hull and white superstructure. She has a yellow smokestack

Although previously scheduled to head to the Caribbean for the winter, she now remains in Europe.  All previously advertised winter special charter offers have been withdrawn.


Not relocating to the Caribbean allows the yacht to complete her 5 year survey.  It also enables her to undergo winter maintenance.
Completion of the safety survey and maintenance project will insure the yacht will be in top condition for the summer 2013 Mediterranean yacht charter season.


With accommodations for 10 guests, rates begin at  € 322,000 EUROS per week.
