Global Superyacht Charter Maven Closes 2011 with 40 New Luxury Yachts

Posted on

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, stands on superyacht deck at yacht show

Jana Sheeder

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. 

MAVEN COMMENTS

“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.”

 

NEWEST AND LARGEST YACHTS

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.”

 

CLASSIC SAILBOAT

Profile photograph of classic sailboat, Germania Nova, underway

Germania Nova classic saiilboat replica

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.”

 

 

AWARD-WINNING YACHTS

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.”

 

SUPERYACHT EXUMA

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).

 

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE NEW YEAR

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!”

Posted on

PERINI NAVI CARIBBEAN ALLURE

Sailors come to the Caribbean every year.  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.

 

YACHTING EVENT

Perini Navi has a new sail event in 2010. The yacht charter experience is an opportunity to participate in a superyacht race event.

CLASSIC YACHTS RACE

Expected to participate are MALTESE FALCON, SALUTE, and SELENE.

Up to 10 more Perini Navi sailboats are considering participation.

THE REGATTA

This past week, 28 superyacht vessels converged at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda base in Virgin Gorda for the third “Caribbean” edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, sponsored by luxury Italian brand Loro Piana.

 

PERINI NAVI STANDS OUT
