The buzz continues to build around the nominees for the 2011 World Superyacht Awards. It is an annual ceremony that fêtes many of the Newest and Largest Yachts. It is hosted by the editors of Boat International Media. The awards finally honor the finest new vessels delivered to their owners in the past twelve months.
Above all, it is considered the “Oscars” of the megayacht industry. The ceremony scheduled for May 7, 2011 will be attended by an elite guest list of owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the business of boats.
It sometimes seems sail boat charters take a back seat to their motor yacht rivals. Consequently, a privileged few will be fortunate enough to experience sail yacht PANTHALASSA under sail.
The 56 meter megayacht is nominated for Best Sailing Yacht in 45 meter and up category.
The vessel presents a fusion of contemporary living and the finest nautical heritage. Her interior is luxurious and features a rich contemporary decor. She is delightful to the eye and soothing to the soul. Sail mega yacht PANTHALASSA reflects an outstanding creative synthesis between Perini Navi and Foster & Partners.
Natural daylight suffuses the interior of the superyacht. She has unique skylights that channel light from the sundeck and oversized portholes. The clean lines and uncluttered style of her interior offer contemporary living. Central to the luxury yacht charter vessel is a flowing stairwell. It is wrapped in a translucent acrylic enclosure that alloows light into the main saloon.
A tactile and warm ambiance is created through the use of warm, natural organic tones and the combination of teak flooring with saddle leather wall paneling and granite surfaces. Flexible multifunctional spaces offer a host of well conceived opportunities for social interaction or intimate gatherings. the dining table can become a coffee table. Nearby, the library is positioned with views over open water for a feeling of deep relaxation and enhancing contemplation. The boardroom with its video conferencing facilities is also a perfect dining area and the sweeping sofa in the saloon becomes a bar.
The ability to conduct business while onboard makes this superyacht the perfect special event charter vessel, and an ideal candidate for MIPIM, the Cannes Film Festival, and finally, the Monaco Grand Prix. Electric glazed screens allow the entire main saloon , dining area, and wheelhouse to be divided or unified into a one large living space.
“unparalleled in terms of interior space design and deck organization. There are large spaces dedicated to ensuring privacy among guests, and plenty of room to store the yacht’s sizable watertoy equipment inventory.“

As the year draws to a close, luxury yacht charter maven Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charter Consultants and 1-800 Yacht Charters, is beaming.
“We’ve closed our year with the addition of 40 brand new 2011 models to our global network of yacht charter vessels. The largest of our new offerings is the 81 meter Feadship motor yacht AIR, followed by Proteksan Turquoise yacht TALISMAN MAITON (ex-Talisman C) and Rossi Navi motor yacht HIGH POWER III (ex-Numptia), both 70 meters in overall length.”
Sheeder’s companies have a reputation of offering the newest and largest yachts in the world’s best destinations. She and her teams spend countless hours identifying potential charter yachts.
“Rarely do we add any yacht to our fleet that is more than two to three years old, “ says Sheeder. “Even when we consider classic-styled yachts, we prefer to promote modern reproductions of famous yachts. Clients know they can turn to us for yachts that are on the cutting edge of new technology and styling.”
An example of Sheeder’s pursuit of modern yachts is the newly launched 47 meter sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA, a replica of a classic racing schooner first launched in 1908. Says Sheeder,
“Turn of the century guests onboard the original yacht would marvel at the technological comforts onboard this modern vessel. From satellite televisions to 5.1 Dolby surround sound, the only thing ‘old’ on this yacht is the classic design.”
Important to realize, many of the new yachts are award winners in global design competitions. Competitions, for instance, the annual ShowBoats Design Awards.
“We pay close attention to these competitions,” reports Sheeder. “The best designers and naval architects in the world judge these yachts. Odds are great that if the best minds in the industry like a boat, our clients will, too.”
Recent award winners promoted by SailAway to their clients include late 2010 launch Perini Navi motor yacht EXUMA (Best Exterior Design & Styling Award: Displacement Motor Yachts 100-199). Also, the 42 meter Holland Jachtbouw motor yacht CALLIOPE (Best Exterior Design & Styling Award: Semi-displacement Motor Yachts).
In conclusion, as to the new year, Sheeder is even more optimistic.
“Our research indicates that 72 new megayachts were ordered in 2011, the largest at 100 meters, and an average length of almost 43 meters. Eighty per cent of these newly-built yachts will be launched in 2012 or 2013, and we’ll surely have an entirely new inventory of yachts-for-hire to present to our discriminating clientele!”

For hundreds of years, sailors have been drawn to the Caribbean. For the Perini Navi yacht charter aficionado, that lure continues to this day. Superyacht builder Perini Navi can proudly boast that a large number of Caribbean yacht charter megayacht vessels were launched from their acclaimed Italian shipyard.
Now, with the advent of a new sail event in 2010, the Perini Navi yacht charter experience will be enhanced by the opportunity to participate in a superyacht race event.
A new regatta, “Les Voiles de Saint Barth,” will be held between April 6 and April 11th, 2010. The event is organized by the Saint Barth Yacht Club and Comité Territorial du Tourisme, with the support of Saint Barthélémy’s Collectivité.
While classic boats and multihulls will race in this new event, the undoubted stars of the show will be in the superyacht category. The megayacht Caribbean yacht charter vessels, will be led by a flotilla of Perini Navi sailboats.
Up to 10 more Perini Navi sailboats are considering participation.
The inspiration for “Les Voiles de Saint Barth” is to create a regatta for beautiful sailboats to navigate in the local waters in a festive spirit. In the idyllic setting of Saint Barth Island, residents, storekeepers, and water sport professionals are getting ready to welcome these mega yachts and their crews (and the fortunate Caribbean yacht charter customers who participate) to help them discover or rediscover this unique island. There is no better time to plan sail boat charters in the Caribbean than late spring. From sail boat charters to crewed catamaran charters, a St Barts yacht charter during “Les Voiles de Saint Barth” will bring memories to last a lifetime.
