POPULAR CATAMARANS

Let’s travel from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean.  Wonderful yachting destinations.  Catamarans built by Sunreef Yachts are dominating the charter industry.  Vessels such as Sunreef 70 sail catamaran BLUE GURU and Sunreef 70 power catamaran DAMRAK II  redefine luxury at sea.

 

NEW POWERCAT

Now, word comes of a new entry into the marketplace by Sunreef.  In particular, the Sunreef 60 power catamaran.  It is a result of a growing demand for compact,  impressive multihull motoryachts.  This yacht has all the features of the popular 70 Sunreef Power.  However,  it has a 27.8 foot (8.5 meter) beam.  This beam width makes her more convenient for crowded marinas.  This is a popular concept for Mediterranean dockage.

To enumerate, it has two double cabins in the forward section, two double cabins in the starboard hull, and one double, one bunk-bed cabin in the port hull. All cabins will have private bathrooms and plenty of storage space.  

 

INTERIOR OF POWERCAT

Mediterranean yacht charter guests will find the interior of the main deck will feature the galley and a dining area, while a mezzanine floor located in the midship will feature the internal helm station and lounge, providing access to the forward guest cabins and the flybridge.

 

EXTERIOR

A spacious sun deck comprises an external helm station, wet bar, dining area and a roomy sun pad, ideal for outdoor lounging in the sun.  Charter models will have an option to include a Jacuzzi on the flybridge.

 

ACCENTS WITHIN

She features many beautiful modern and minimalistic touches. For instance, wenge and oak wood contrasts, and cream and white upholstery that has brushed stainless steel details.

The Sunreef 60 mould (mold USA) is already completed and the first unit is due for launch in late May 2012.

UPDATED Unique Yacht Paint Jobs

Posted on

UPDATE 1-18-2019 —

ADDED – THUNDERBIRD 2

Presenting powercat THUNDERBIRD 2.  A motorized catamaran with a very unique paintjob!  Thanks to Sarah for letting us know that it should be included in this blog. We agree!  Go green! #gogreen

YACHT PAINT JOBS

Everyone knows that picking house paint colors isn’t just difficult, it’s terrifying! Pick colors that are blah, and your house will seem featureless and flat. But if the colors you pick are too bold, they might overwhelm the architecture…and upset your neighbors.

CURB APPEAL

The best colors will highlight the most beautiful features of your home. Skillful use of color can even disguise design flaws, boosting the, “curb appeal” and market value of your home.

Finding that magic color combination also holds true for luxury mega yacht charter vessels. 

 

DOCK APPEAL

The first thing a potential client sees when preparing to rent a private yacht is the exterior. The “dock appeal” must catch the attention of the prospect and pique his curiosity to see the interior as well.

 

WHITE YACHTS

Traditionally, yachts were painted simply – clean, bright white.  With modern technology, new paints and colors that resist fading and the harsh marine environment have been developed.  Now, the only limit to the exterior color scheme of a yacht is the owner’s imagination.

SAMPLE YACHTS

Here’s a sampling of unique paint schemes and colors on some of the newest and largest yachts around the world:

 

QUITE ESSENTIAL

Aerial photograph of a red and white motoryacht. It is headed toward the lower left side of the photo
QUITE ESSENTIAL  – With a striking color scheme of Oyster White and Merlot Red, developed by the owner in close collaboration with Dobroserdov Design, Heesen motor yacht Quite Essential will certainly not pass unnoticed in the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet.  It is said the red color was inspired by the owner’s love for Merlot wine!    

SLIPSTREAM

SLIPSTREAM – celebrity owner, former American Idol 
judge, and X-Factor creator Simon Cowell, is known for wearing simple, dark colored T-shirts against pale blue jeans. The classic deep blue hull and gun-blue superstructure of Cowell’s yacht Slipstream sets the scene for a truly nautical and contemporary super yacht. 

 

BLACK AND WHITE

Photograph of a black and white motoryacht underway. It is headed toward the bottom left side of the photo.
BLACK and WHITE –  the distinctive black and white theme onboard motor yacht BLACK AND WHITE 
is based on the ancient yin yang symbol, a Chinese sign for the mixing of complementary opposites.  Launched in 2010, this magnificent Sunseeker 34 yacht mixes not only color, but also high-end amenities and comfort with performance and power.

 

MISTER JINGLES

Aeriral photograph of a gold and black yacht underway.. It is coming toward the lower right side of the photo.
MISTER JINGLES – the global debt crisis has focused great attention on the value of gold.  The color gold draws nearly as much attention, especially on  a yacht painted stem to stern in this shiny, metallic palette.  Designed and built by Italy’s Fashion Yachts, motor yacht Mister Jingles 
debuted as a luxury yacht charter vessel in 2009.  The metallic performance yacht  boasts a 35 knot cruising speed – perfect for quickly getting from one famous port to another.

 

AURELIA


Photograph of a colorful motoryacht. It has a light blue hull, orange section at the top of the hull, then a white superstructure. There is a number 10 in black in a white circle, like a racecar, on the side of the yacht toward the back.
AURELIA – recently, we profiled yachts named after race horses by their loving owners
.  It seems another type of race fan – Formula 1 cars – is just as proud to display his passion on a yacht.  The 37-Meter Heesen motor yacht Aurelia boast an unusual color scheme from Dobroserdov Design, inspired by the owner’s passion for racing cars.  Zoom Zoom Zoom!

What SUP With Hot Luxury Yacht Charter Toy?

Posted on

Aerial photo of a man and woman on separate stand up paddleboards in shallow water. Her paddleboard is yellow and she is at the bottom of the photo. His paddleboard is turquoise, and he is in the middle of the photograph. They are both facing the right side of the picture.  They are in shallow, sandy water, as if they are doing a lesson.

Stand Up Paddleboarding SUP

The other day, our charter department was updating the list of online watertoys for newly launched Mediterranean yacht charter vessel QUARANTA.  The list of aquatoys sent to us by the yacht’s manager detailed all of the usual toys – tender, snorkel gear, wakeboard, etc.   One item, however, caught my attention: SUP.

I fired off a text message to the manager that read, “David, whatz SUP?” 

A few moments later, I received his reply, “Not much…whatz up wit u??”  

Once I composed myself and stopped laughing, I sent him another text reading, “No seriously, what does SUP mean?”

David replied, “Stand Up Paddleboard.”

It seems stand up paddleboards, or SUP’s are popping up on mega yacht charter vessels everywhere, and just might be the “In” watertoy for 2013. 

Stand up paddle boarding is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. Designed as a way for surfers to paddle longer distances, supporters cite the ease of learning how to use a SUP as a key to its popularity.

“Unlike kiteboarding or windsurfing, novices can learn to use a SUP in as little as an hour of training,”  states Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “They are affordable toys that can easily be integrated into both sail boat charters and motor yacht charters.” 

Expect to see more and more charter vessels adding SUP’s to their onboard watertoy inventories…and next time that you hear the phrase, “whatz SUP,” you’ll know!
