In the rarified air of multimillion dollar superyachts and gigayachts, helipads on luxury mega yacht charter vessels like motor yacht AIR and motor yacht MOONLIGHT II are commonplace, perhaps even de rigueur.While an ondeck helipad may no longer turn heads at the quay in Monaco, the type of helicopter adorning the pad can still garner the envious gaze of fellow yachties.
The EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style aircraft is not just about luxury but the effective and flexible use of space. It is the only he-lo in its class that can seat up to eight passengers. For the cabin layout, all seats are mounted on rails and can be quickly and easily reconfigured/removed for additional room for luggage. There are also multi-function boxes with features such as a mini-frig, cup holder and table, and 15-inch TV monitor and DVD player.
The aft-cabin features a high-capacity luggage compartment with room for baggage, golf clubs, even bicycles.
Like the R-Class models that inspired it, the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style is the most versatile and spacious helicopter in its class. Available from the fourth quarter of 2011, expect to see this model onboard Virgin Island yacht charter vessels in November and December.

Fingers are crossed that the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet will soon welcome yacht Salperton IV to the family. Earlier incarnations of Salperton have spent years delivering mega yacht charter holidays to customers around the world. Two of the earlier vessels are still available for sail boat charters under the current names of Northern Spirit (37 meters) and Drumbeat (53 meters).
