3 Yacht Charter Must See Destinations | Luxury yacht charter

Posted on

TRIP ADVISOR IMAGES

Our friends at Trip Advisor recently sent us an email.  “Stunning images of 20 awe-inspiring places you must see.”  Most importantly, their members select the locations.

Several of the spots were accessible by yacht.  Additionally, they are easily accessed by land during a luxury yacht charter vacation.

 

FIRST FAVORITE YACHT CHARTER DESTINATION OF 3

PULPIT ROCK – Ryfylke, Norway.

The Pulpit Rock (“Preikestolen” in Norwegian) soars 604 meters over the Lysefjord. This flat mountain plateau was most likely carved and formed from melting ice over 10,000 years ago.

Fjord yacht charters in the summertime certainly remain a popular choice.  Uniquely among European customers from neighboring Soviet countries. 
The Schooner sail yacht MONTIGNE  often offers Norway yacht charter vacations in the summertime.  Her builder is Aegean Yachts.  The 2009 super yacht MONTIGNE is a 57 meter (187 foot) three-masted staysail schooner. She accommodates 12 guests.

Her yacht charter rates start at $140,000 USD per week, plus expenses.

SECOND FAVORITE DESTINATION OF 3

PLITVICE LAKES – Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia.

Founded in 1949, Plitvice is the largest national park in Croatia. Above all, it draws more than 1,200,000 visitors annually.  The park situates in the mountainous area of central Croatia. The national park connects the Croatian inland with the Adriatic coastal region. Most importantly, this is a highly popular yachting destination. On the positive side, the interest in Croatia yacht charters continues to grow.

In view of, each summer, clients look for alternatives to the crowded anchorages and overpriced marinas in France and Italy.Aerial photograph of mountains, green trees, turquoise water, and waterfalls flowing from the lakes

Motor yacht AIR, Benetti MINE GAMES, and James Bond boat, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, all spend time cruising the waters of the Adriatic yacht charter coastline.

THIRD FAVORITE YACHT CHARTER DESTINATION OF 3  

SANTORINI – Cyclades, Greece.

You see photographs of blinding-white buildings with blue roofs. These are juxtaposed against a backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea.  In other words, chances are that you are seeing Santorini.  The views of the sea from the terraces of the ancient towns along the cliffs are mesmerizing.  
Arguably the most famous island in Greece, Santorini is easily reachable by yacht.  Its location is just 120 miles southeast from Greece’s mainland.

Excitement and Generosity Drive Private Yacht Charter Maven into 2016

Posted on

Happy New Year 1800yachtcharters logo
REBRANDED FOR GENEROSITY

About a year ago, we rebranded our business with a new focus, driven by our motto, “What if we built our business for Generosity?”

 

PERSONAL OBLIGATION AND SOCIAL GOOD

As leaders in arranging Mediterranean yacht charter vacations, along with private yacht holidays throughout Greece and the Caribbean, we recognized an opportunity, and an obligation, to grow our business for the  greater social good.

 

CHARTER A YACHT – CHANGE THE WORLD

Realizing you can rent a yacht from a number of qualified charter brokers around the world, we came up with a simple reason to book your yacht with us:   “Charter a Yacht and Change the World.”

Wow – what a year 2015 turned out to be!

 

HEAVILY EMBRACED

We are so proud of and honored by our clients – both repeat charterers and new customers.  They embraced our commitment to sustainability and generosity.

With enthusiasm, they chose our reusable water bottles in lieu of disposable plastic bottles (to help reduce plastic pollution in our oceans). When we told them a portion of their charter cost would be donated to charity in their name, and that we wanted their input in selecting the charity, they were quick to direct multiple donations to their favorite causes.

MANY CHARITIES BENEFITED

Thanks to our clients, among MANY other things, we were able to

  • PROTECT REEFS.  Install multiple mooring buoys in Biscayne Bay.  This is the hub of the Florida yacht charter marketplace. The buoys protect coral reefs from damage from boat anchors. Additionally, they educate the public about the plight of coral reefs and historical underwater wrecks.
  • BUY MEDICAL EQUIPMENT.  Purchase a medical autoclave to sterilize surgical instruments for an international group that provides low-cost spay and neutering services for dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals, enabling the medical team to alter many more pets and rescued animals each day.
  • SPAY AND NEUTER.  Pay for multiple spay/neuter surgeries for stray animals
  • DO ANIMAL RESCUE.  Pay for the rescue, transport, and housing of multiple animals (saving lives)
  • PAMPER WOUNDED VETERANS.  Defray the cost of multiple private luxury Virgin Islands yacht charter vacations. These occur on a 155 foot superyacht.  They support veteran wounded soldiers and their spouses.
  • PROTECT MANATEES.  Manatee (sea cow, dugong) conservation
  • SUPPORT POLLINATORS.   Repopulate bees, butterflies, and pollinators near natural hammocks and waterways
  • EDUCATE YOUTH.  Support classrooms who are teaching youth to protect the oceans and to use sustainable goods

 

Looking back, 2015 was a fantastic year.  The above items and so many others are just so exciting for us. Helping others is our passion.

 

WHAT LIES AHEAD

We enter 2016 with a number of new yachts and new destinations to offer our clients.  We have the brand new expedition yacht LEGEND, available for experiencing Greenland and Norway’s Fjords; and  the world’s largest sailing yacht for charter made of wood, the yacht LAMIMA, available in the exotic islands of Thailand and Burma.

 

WE ARE ENERGIZED

Our team is energized to share these yachts and destinations with our clients.  Each charter vacation gives our clients a chance to reconnect with family and friends.  Additionally, to embrace diverse cultures.  Finally, to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH US

Together, we will make a difference.   The Superyacht Experience™ by 1-800 Yacht Charters awaits you.  When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change…and so does the world around you!!!

Happy New Year,
