Calliope from Mythology Meets Modern Beauty

Posted on

GREEK MYTHOLOGY

In ancient Greek mythology, Calliope (k-l-p) was the beautiful Muse of epic poetry.  Fast forward two-thousand years, where that classic beauty and spirit can be enjoyed onboard motor yacht CALLIOPE.

ABOUT YACHT CALLIOPE

Launched in 2010 by fabled Dutch builders Holland Jachtbouw, the 42.28m (138ft 8in) yacht has left the confines of the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet for new adventures in the Pacific Ocean, where she will be based this winter in the yachting capital of Auckland, New Zealand.
Currently, motor yacht CALLIOPE is available for a year-end yachting holiday at the attractive rate of  $160,000 per week plus running costs, for up to ten guests in five staterooms!
Multi-repeat charterers scramble to find new destinations for their winter vacations.  New Zealand is the hot spot for 2013.  It has easy international flight access.  Auckland is the perfect embarkation port.  Furthermore, it is a short cruise from the stunning nearby Hauraki Gulf islands.  For instance, Rangitoto, home to the largest volcano in the region.

How Do You Get To St Barts?

Where is Caribbean yacht charter island, St. Barts?

CLIENT QUESTION

“Dear SailAway – I love reading the blogs about the big yachts and all of the celebrities that hang out in St Barts during the holidays. I will be in St Martin for a hotel-based vacation, and while I can’t afford a luxury yacht charter, I would love to see St Barts. What’s the best way to get there?

 

EDITOR RESPONSE

Thanks, Terry. You have several options:

BY AIR

There are daily flights from Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) located in St Maarten (Netherlands, Antilles). It’s a short 10-12 minute flight to St Barth’s Gustave III Airport, located on the island’s north coast. The descent is a real nail biter for the fainthearted, necessitating a pass through a narrow break in a hilltop and a landing on the 280 meter runway that ends on St Jean beach.
Call +590 590 276541 for flight info.

BY FERRY

If you would rather avoid the short flight, several inter-island high-speed ferry services operate regularly between St Maarten and St Bart’s. It’s a 45 minute ride.

RENT A SAILBOAT

As to not being able to afford a yacht charter, Terry, you might be surprised. Megayachts are certainly very expensive, but many travelers prefer smaller, more intimate crewed catamaran charters for their yachting vacations.

 

RATE

A family or group of 8 passengers can rent a crewed catamaran for under $15,000 per week, inclusive of all meals, alcohol, crew, and LOTS of onboard watersports toys like bananas, wakeboards, snorkel gear, underwater scooters, SCUBA diving, etc.
