Hoping repeat charter clients have tired of spending New Year’s Eve anchored in St Barts, one megayacht owner has decided to reposition his superyacht to New Zealand to ring in the new year.
The 42 meter Mediterranean yacht charter vessel, motor yacht NINKASI, has announced plans to relocate to Auckland, New Zealand in December, for Christmas, New Years, and the winter charter season.
Danish-built by Holland Jachtbouw in 2010, motor yacht NINKASI offers accommodations for
10 guests in 5 Cabins.
Her price is set for all seasons at $160,000 per week plus running expenses.
The final nominees for the 2011 ShowBoats Design Awards have been announced, and a group of mega yacht charter vessels lead the way.
Table of 12 – Early Bird Price: $5670 (savings of $630).
Table of 10 – Early Bird Price: $4725 (savings of $525).
Individual Ticket – Early Bird Price: $535 (savings of $60)
