63 meter Turkish Superyacht Is Latest Espen Oeino Masterpiece

Posted on

The naval architects at Espen Oeino International S.A.R.L. continue to raise the bar of superyacht design with their latest offering – Sunrise Yachts motor yacht IRIMARI.

Delivered to her owner in July, the 63 meter yacht is currently cruising in the Greek islands.  So far there is no word if the vessel will be entering the Greek yacht charter fleet.

Sunrise 63 yacht IRIMARI is scheduled to make her official debut at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show this month.

Per our friends at Boat International, one exciting “superfeature” to be expected inside motoryacht Irimari is “…a video wall spanning two decks!

Based in Monaco, Espen Oeino International is considered one of the leading design studios of private yacht charter vessels, especially in the category of Superyachts.  Their portfolio includes Lurssen motor yacht MARTHA ANN, and the world’s largest yacht available for charter, Fincantieri yacht SERENE.

The launch of yacht IRIMARI marks the first of the Sunrise 63 series to splash down for the Turkish builder.  The Espen Oeino designed yacht features interiors by Focus Yacht Design and naval architecture by Unique Yacht Design. Built with a high tensile steel hull and aluminum superstructure, the yacht has a transatlantic range of 5,000 miles, and a top speed of 17 knots.

Build Team, Owner Reflect On Motor Yacht JOY, New Feadship Yacht Charter

Posted on

What do you get when you merge the vision of a new yacht owner who has never owned a boat, with the talents of Europe’s leading design studios and Holland’s premier yacht builder?

The answer is the radically-styled 70 meter Feadship motor yacht JOY.

Launched in July,  the latest creation by the craftsmen at Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards, superyacht JOY was built for a young American owner from New York. Amazingly, it is not only the first yacht he has ever built – it is the first yacht he has ever owned.

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, commented on how the owner’s lack of involvement in the yachting industry led to the creation of a unique vessel, unlike any other yacht in the 70 meter range: “You take an ambitious, youthful person, who has no pre-conceived bias as to what is expected when you design and build a superyacht, and you open the door to a fresh perspective on how a yacht can reflect the owner’s vision of what The Superyacht Experience can be.”

At the commencement of the project, the owner’s brief was simple and clear, and brimming with the optimism of youth:  “Create something totally different to every other yacht.”

Recognizing the need to bring a fresh approach to the entire project, Feadship reached out to designers never before retained.  For the avant-garde exterior, they turned to the design studio of Bannenberg & Rowell.  Interior architecture was assigned to Studio Indigo. Visually, superyacht JOY looks like no other. The wide walkways and flow between the interior and exterior spaces are without precedent on superyachts of this size. Dickie Bannenberg commented, “You will see there are a lot of sculpted and rather complex surfaces that give the design a very unique look.”

Of course, crafting the  fascinating concave shapes in the yacht’s superstructure presented challenges to the builder.  At the launch ceremony, Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuy said, “(motor yacht ) JOY was an incredibly complicated boat to build with so many shapes and lines. We are very grateful to the fairing gods at Feadship and all the other craftsmen who have showcased their skills on such a unique boat.”

The proud new owner was equally pleased by the results of the challenging build.  “Studio Indigo has worked amazingly hard to produce such a gorgeous design with an incredible focus on detail. I’m also delighted with Bannenberg & Rowell’s sleek and progressive profile that reflects my desire to go forward into the future.”

With a yacht name reflecting the owner’s joyous enthusiasm for life and the opportunities for self-growth and exploration that only time aboard a yacht can bring, the owner reflected on a recent visit he made to New York’s Central Park. “When I saw the statue of Columbus it reminded me of how much joy this explorer felt when he first saw land. Today is my moment of joy as something I have long dreamt about has come to light. I’m incredibly happy and sincerely grateful to Feadship and all the other team members who made this happen.”

For her part, Sheeder is thrilled to have the opportunity to promote this yacht to her clients seeking wellness yacht charters. “The mix of spa-like amenities is amazing, from the Jacuzzi sun deck, to the massage room, to the ocean-level beach club. Where else can you exercise in a gym with panoramic views of the sea, and then rest and reflect in a minimalist interior with textures and colors designed to invoke feelings of tranquility and wellness?”

 “In a sea of cookie-cutter designed boats, this is a transcendent yacht that will quickly set a new standard in the charter market.”

===================

Rates for a St Martin yacht charter in winter start at $600,000 per week.  Rates for summer, 2017 Monaco yacht charters start at €600,000 per week.  Charter superyacht JOY through 1-800 Yacht Charters at info@1800yachtchartrers.com

Miami Yacht Show Gives Yacht Charter Maven Leg Up On The Competition

Posted on


ADVANTAGE, SHEEDER…

There’s an old saying in football – when your team is on offense, “take what the defense gives you.”  In other words, make the most of the opportunities that come your way.

No one understands that mentality more than our head honcho – Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.

Every President’s Day weekend, Jana rallies our team, and we invade the Miami Yacht Show, held in Miami Beach.  This year’s show runs from February 15 – 19, 2018.

Known predominately as a “sales” show, few yacht charter brokers attend, preferring to wait until the charter-only show season in late Spring.  What they don’t realize (and Jana does) is that many charter yachts are quietly listed  for sale, and they attend shows like Miami before entering the charter season.

We use this opportunity to inspect yachts and interview crews privately – without  our competitors trying to eavesdrop on our conversations.   With fewer distractions and interruptions, we can spend more quality time with the crews – discussing our past charters, planning fresh itineraries and activities for guests, and always looking for ways to deliver a unique Superyacht Experience to our repeat clients.


UBER?  NO, THANK YOU…

Of course, having more time to see the yachts only matters if you can get to the yachts – a tall task when the superyachts are spread across Miami Beach in two locations – one in front of the classic hotels along Collins Avenue, and the other 4 miles to the south, at Jungle Island Deep Harbor Marina.

Anyone who has visited Miami Beach during the yacht show knows the roadways are snarled by heavy vehicle congestion. It can literally take an hour in traffic to travel just one mile along Collins Avenue, with drivers cruising slowly to gawk at and take photos of the hundreds of yachts docked just feet away from the roadway.  Whether in a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or private car – it’s all the same: traffic, traffic, traffic…

Fortunately for us, Jana developed the ultimate solution to avoid gridlock – we zip around the marinas and pull up at the docks via boat!  Professional, fun, and unique – wonder what she has up her sleeve for the future?

For this year’s show, we used a Jupiter 31 center console model (after our Van Dutch 55 had mechanical problems).  [Side bar:  The Van Dutch is a stylish cruiser, and some of our superyacht clients had flown in to inspect several luxury yacht charter vessels with us.  We thought they would be bummed not to cruise “in style” on the Van Dutch 55.  Turns out they had a blast with Jana – roaring around Biscayne Bay in the fast Jupiter, and cruising up the Miami River for a dockside late lunch and sunset at the Casablanca Seafood Restaurant.  A special bonus was the sighting of a manatee and dolphins!  The Miami Magic…]

 

FOR CHARTER…

Some of our most popular charter yachts (and crews) came to town, including:

  • DOUBLE DOWN – 213 Foot Codedasa superyacht selected last season by one of our clients for a 10–day Greek yacht charter odyssey through the Ionian islands. [Click on the yacht name to see photos we took at the Miami Yacht Show…] 
  • BLISS – 145 Foot Heesen charteryacht – a fantastic modern yacht with a fun-loving crew who delivered a memorable Balearic islands yacht charter holiday to one of our Dutch clients and his family last July.
  • QUITE ESSENTIAL – 180 Foot Heesen – eco-friendly motoryacht with impressive looks and great interior comfort.  Another great superyacht for clients.

 

STUNNING NEW YACHT…

We also took the opportunity to inspect some brand new yachts for sale.  Why would we look at yachts not currently in charter?  Many buyers in the market for a brand new yacht will often buy a yacht, then enter it into the charter marketplace.  If this is done after the boat show season, there may not be an opportunity to inspect the yacht for many months.  We prefer to promote charter yachts that we have inspected, and while that’s not always the case, taking the time to look at popular, newly-built models increases the odds that we will see a new charter yacht before our competitors do.  We’re always looking for ways to stay a step ahead!

Our favorite new model at this year’s show is the NAVETTA 33, from the custom series of yachts built by Italy’s Ferretti Yachts.

Ferretti has already sold ten hulls since the model was launched in 2017.  After inspecting this yacht, it is easy to see why. The Navetta 33 Ferretti features a voluminous interior flooded with natural light through  floor-to-ceiling windows.  We walked through with one of our clients who has designed contemporary interiors for luxury suites in NBA arenas – and she was just as impressed!

 

THE 1-800 YACHT CHARTER DIFFERENCE…

So there you have it – another great yacht show for 1-800 Yacht Charters.  Jana took our team (and our clients) on some of the most popular luxury yacht charter vessels found anywhere in the world.  We also saw newly built yachts, and we’re anxious to see them enter the charter market.

Most importantly, we had the opportunity to spend quality time with our clients and share with them another aspect of our dedication to Delivering The Superyacht Experience…
