Excitement and Generosity Drive Private Yacht Charter Maven into 2016

Posted on

Happy New Year 1800yachtcharters logo
About a year ago, we rebranded our business with a new focus, driven by our motto, “What if we built our business for Generosity?”

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.

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!

We are so proud of 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.

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

  • Install multiple mooring buoys in Biscayne Bay, the hub of the Florida yacht charter marketplace, to protect coral reefs from damage from boat anchors, as well as to educate the public about the plight of coral reefs and historical underwater wrecks.
  • 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.
  • Help cover the cost of private luxury Virgin Islands yacht charter vacations on a 155 foot superyacht for veteran wounded soldiers and their spouses.

Looking back, 2015 was a fantastic year.

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.

Our team is energized to share these yachts and destinations with our clients – for each charter vacation will give our clients a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

Together, we will make a difference.  When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change…and so does the world around you!!!

Happy New Year,

Back in September, we reported on the great values being offered for a Virgin Islands yacht charter during the Thanksgiving holidays.

Then, motor yacht SERENITY jumped on the band wagon and offered a fall special for a Thanksgiving charter in the Bahamas.

Not to be left at the dock, Trinity yacht charter motor yacht MI SUENO wants everyone to know she is also available for a Thanksgiving cruise, November 24 – 28, 2011.  Bookings will be accepted for either the Bahamas or the Caribbean.

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and SailAway Yacht Charter Consultants is very pleased that superyachts entrust her company with such special pricing and first class amenities to share with clients. She says, “clients who enjoy upscale travel on private luxury yachts deserve and expect the finest treatment and amenities, and we are more than happy to accommodate them.  Even if yachts are not offering specials or extra benefits, we do additional research and make connections to get them the best of the best. We’ve been doing this since 1976, and that’s why we are known for our 6 star customer service.”  

The 190′ (57.92 meter) motor yacht Mi Sueno was launched in 2010 by US-based Trinity Yachts.  The vessel accommodates 12 guests in 6 staterooms.

Her weekly rate of  280,000 EUROS (plus running expenses) will be pro-rated for a long Thanksgiving weekend cruise.
