At the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, FLIBS, we had the pleasure of taking a few of our best private luxury yacht charter clients (and dear friends) for a stroll along the docks. The couple had recently completed the construction of another home on a lot overlooking the ocean, and they wanted to purchase a boat for weekend family outings.
We looked at the latest offerings from Germany’s Fjord Yachts, the innovative expandable-deck boats by Italy’s Evo Yachts, and the trendy Holland-designed boats of VanDutch.
However, the model that really caught the attention of our friends was a sleek, aluminum-hull day cruiser built by Vanquish Yachts – the Vanquish VQ54. The boat is simply stunning – there’s no other way to describe it.
As we stood on the dock discussing the boat and the available color options, a passerby stopped and gazed at the boat. “Beautiful,” he exclaimed. “Too bad it’s made out of aluminum – electrolysis is bad for boats.”
As the man walked away, our friends seemed a bit confused. “What’s wrong with electrolysis?” asked the wife. “It’s a great way to remove unwanted hair!”
“It’s a little different with boats,” we said, and then we explained marine electrolysis, and the possible damage it can cause to a boat or yacht.
For humans, Medical Electrolysis is a clinical method of removing individual hairs from a person’s face or body. A device is used to destroy the growth center of hair with chemical or heat energy.
For boats, Marine Electrolysis is the result of potential current existing between two different objects. It is often caused by stray electrical current, and can be extremely destructive (causes corrosion) on boats made out of aluminum.
The results generated by medical electrolysis are all positive – people can remove unwanted hair, and it is a permanent fix. With marine electrolysis, the results are not so good – and if not caught quickly, the corrosive effects to an aluminum boat can cause great damage (holes, water leaking into the boat, etc.), and require expensive repairs.
Aluminum boats are also susceptible to another related culprit – Galvanic Corrosion. This can occur when two dissimilar metals come into contact with an electrolyte and create a natural electrical current. Salt water can work as the perfect catalyst for galvanic corrosion.
Some examples of galvanic corrosion include:
Our experienced clients and friends then asked, “If aluminum has so many problems, why are expensive private luxury yacht charter vessels like Feadship and Heesen yachts built out of aluminum?”
The answer is simple – aluminum is light, but strong (think of airplanes), and unlike yachts built from molds, aluminum yachts can be built to any size, allowing great flexibility and customization that can’t be as easily achieve with fiberglass and other composite materials. As to the corrosion issues, manufacturers can take preventative steps to reduce and even eliminate the threats of marine electrolysis. Yachts are fitted with monitoring systems which constantly check for stray electrical current, as well as anti-corrosion anodes to negate electrical issues below the waterline.
So, while someday you may want medical electrolysis to look and feel your best, you most definitely do not want marine electrolysis – ever…

Word recently came in that one of the largest private luxury yacht charter vessels in the market was just sold.
The 85 meter (279 foot) spectacular Lurssen motor yacht SOLANDGE has been sold. The deal closed on March 22, and the new owner has already taken delivery. The buyer was represented by Moran Yacht and Ship, and terms of the sale have not been released. She was listed for sale by Moran at an asking price of €155,000,000 (yes, boys and girls, that IS 6 zeros!)
The massive yacht was scheduled to participate in the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 23 -26, 2017. Needless to say, the new owner saw no need to put the yacht on display, instead choosing to enjoy his new watertoy.
Launched in 2013, Solandge Lurssen motor yacht features the sleek exterior styling of naval architect Espen Øino, with a rich, rather eclectic interior design by Aileen Rodriguez.
“She is an amazing luxury yacht charter vessel,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “Imagine a floating resort with a gym, spa, saunas, and cinema. There’s even a DJ booth on the party deck, and a 5.5 meter swimming pool on the aft. Best of all, this floating spa is private – only you and your family and friends are onboard!”
Yachtsmen and -women the world over want to know — will we be waving goodbye to Lurssen yacht Solandge…or will she remain in the charter fleet??? Is it Adios – or just Hasta luego? Is it Tchau – or just Ate mais, beijo? Is it Ciao — or Addio?
Often, a new owner will remove the yacht from the private yacht charter marketplace, so he and his family and friends can enjoy her for extended cruising.
“For now, she remains listed for hire, but that could change,” says Sheeder. “Of course, for the benefit of our clients, we certainly hope she remains in the marketplace. Only a handful of the world’s largest yachts are available for hire, and motoryacht Solandge stands at or near the top of that elite list.”
Solandge accommodates 12 guests in a 7 elegant stateroom configuration. Her weekly rate is published at €1,000,000 plus running expenses. Her current schedule has her available for hire in the Caribbean through Spring, then in the Mediterranean for the summer.

The success of a mega yacht charter, indeed the entire yacht charter season of a superyacht depends upon the ability of the vessel’s crew to meet the needs of the paying customers. The best cruising grounds and good weather matter little if the megayacht charter crew does not provide excellent service.
A luxury yacht charter client should be treated the same as you would treat the owner. The only difference is that the crew knows the preferences of an owner (e.g. his or her favorite restaurants, the time he or she likes to wake up in the morning, etc.). The crew does not know these preferences for a new mega yacht charter client.
This provides the crew with a challenge – to ensure that they learn as quickly as possible what the client expects to gain from the Mediterranean yacht charter experience.
It all comes down to this – the happiness of the lead charterer and his family and guests hinges on the effort expended by the staff of the superyacht, especially the Chief Stewardess and the Chef.
A good skipper will introduce the stewardess and chef to the lead charter client early on in the charter. This way, the stew can get a feeling of the level of service or distance expected by the customer, and the chef can get a sense of the level or formality needed with each meal presentation.
Whether a Mediterranean yacht charter or a Caribbean yacht charter, the captain’s role is challenging. He is legally bound to ensure the safety of the guests and crew and he has a priority to ensure that the owner’s property is safeguarded. At the same time, he has to keep the charter guests happy while they are on board, since the paying guests have a significant degree of freedom to decide the nature of the charter.
It is a delicate balancing act to ensure the clients’ demands do not compromise the crew.
The skipper must also comply with the laws of the territorial waters through which the superyacht passes, with particular importance placed on drug restrictions. The captain must impose his authority in the event of discovering the use of recreational drugs. In all superyacht cruising areas, this is illegal. The captain is potentially liable for any breach of the laws. Additionally, in many jurisdictions, the discovery of recreational drugs on board can result in the confiscation of the vessel by the local authorities.
It is essential that the captain ensures that all charter guests (and crew) obey these laws. Should there be an issue with this, the captain may need to refer to the owner/broker to agree on termination of a specific charter. Charter agreements provide the captain with full authority to prohibit the use of recreational drugs by the charter guests.
A seasoned yacht charter broker understands this delicate balancing act faced by a charter captain and crew. If the broker has previously handled a particular client on another vessel, he or she will discuss the characteristics of the client with the new captain, as well as the chef and stewardess.
Brokers also try to gather as much personal information about the charterer by means of a preference sheet. On such forms, the clients can spell out their food and beverage likes and dislikes as well as the recreational pursuits they hope to enjoy during the trip (shopping, swimming, quietly reading a good book, etc.). Such preference sheets help give the crew a deeper understanding of the charter guests desires and expectations.
At the conclusion of the luxury mega yacht charter vacation, it is equally important for the crew and broker to discuss the trip. Per Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, “we ensure that all goes well during a charter, then we follow up after the charter to make sure that all details were perfect for the clients. Personalized and prompt customer service is critical to us. Our clients depend on our having everything organized before, during, and after their superyacht experience as they live their own lives. There is no second guessing in our service. It’s critical to us to make sure that everything was perfect so that we know for their repeat charters. There is no excuse for not providing perfect service to discriminating clientele;” thus, the feedback of the captain and senior crew enables the broker to build up a comprehensive picture of the client’s preferences for future engagements.
When the captain, crew, broker and customer work together, the odds are quite high for a successful and memorable holiday at sea.

There is an old idiom. “You can’t keep a good man down.” This applies to a 45 meter superyacht with a penchant for adventure. Just 15 months after her launch, motor yacht BIG FISH is now on her second trans-Atlantic crossing and nearing 50,000 nautical miles on her own bottom. On her maiden voyage she crossed the Pacific Ocean, transited the Panama Canal twice, chartered inAntarctica, and cruised extensively inJapan, Tahiti, the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon, Sweden, Norway, and theCaribbean.
For “drier” exercise options, she has a full onboard gymnasium. For example, she offers a spin bike, free weights, rowing machine, yoga mats, and more.

It’s hard to find a consensus among charterers. For some, it’s all about the destination. Others appreciate the chance to reconnect with family and friends.
Yet almost all returning yacht charter clients comment about the Michelin menus and the jaw-dropping talents of their yacht’s onboard chef.
Great meals, dazzling presentations, and the infusion of local ingredients and cultural components. These are trademarks of the superyacht chefs in the yacht-for-hire industry.
A great chef can elevate a charter from a “vacation on a boat,” to a true “Superyacht Experience.”
Our associate Nicolas Fry sat down with Gionata Rossi, Executive Chef onboard the 72 meter Tankoa yacht SOLO. This vessel is one of our newest rental luxury yachts. She can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 staterooms. Her cruising grounds include France, Italy, and the Western Mediterranean.
We share more information about super yacht SOLO at the bottom of this blog. Here is Nicolas’ interview with Chef Rossi. Foodies enjoy!
1. Why did you decide to become a chef and to work as a yacht chef?
“Cooking has always been my passion. I started at a very early age. Earned my master at the hotel school in Massa and started working immediately. A Chef for 25 years and I have worked in some of the best restaurants in the world. I have received a Michelin star at casa del nonno 13 and have been reviewed in the best gourmet guides. Joined yachting because it combines my primary passions: cooking and travelling”.
2. What is your favorite cuisine and can you prepare different styles of cooking?
“I cook different styles but the contemporary one based on traditional cuisine is what I consider the most interesting. As a Chef on a superyacht charter vessel I believe that the cuisine served is not only a show but a nutritional experience as well. My passion for food varies from creating the perfect roast dinner to a 7-course degustation where I can display a whole range of different cooking techniques and products. My main talent is Italian and French cuisine whilst still offering Asian and Japanese menus.”
3. Is there a chef you admire above all others and why?
“If I have to mention only one, then it is Raffaele Vitale, an important Italian chef, as I had definitely the best experience working with him. I have many friends but the research of taste and knowledge of raw materials with Raffaele were essential for me. Which nationalities tend to be the best charter guests? Gionata: I am lucky, I have always had good relationships with guests from many different nationalities. Having said that, I have worked a lot with Russian yacht charter guests and they generally love my food.”
4. Which is your favorite destination and why?
“Greece and Turkey are always in my heart for the quality of fruit and vegetables you can find on the markets”
5. How are trends driving guest expectations and how do you stay up to date?
“In my kitchen and galley I take pride that everything is made from scratch with fresh products. Stocks, sauces & dressings are always made on board, ice creams are churned to order, pastas and gnocchi rolled fresh, fresh bread baked daily and our meats and seafood are always fresh. I also specialize in vegan, vegetarian and low-calorie diets”.
6. What trends are you noticing in wine and food pairings?
“I drink only biodynamic wines and I think that this trend is on the increase therefore also the combination must go in that direction even if I consider fundamental to combine food and wine. By the way, my favorite wine is the Pinot Nero!”
7. Can you share with us a spring menu you would prepare for affluent charter yacht guests?
“Marinated spring onion and tomato with lime sorbet, cold tomato soup with fresh spaghetto garlic oil and chilli, cold english cream with berries and apple crumble.”
8. When are you happiest at work?
“Cooking demonstrations with the guests either at the table or in the kitchen! This is a special touch I like to offer to luxury yacht rental guests. I wish to share my passion for food with my clients and create an amazing atmosphere for their dining experience. When I can establish a good relationship with the guests, the rest is easy.”
9. BONUS: What are the strengths that make you a great superyacht chef?
“In order to offer a great superyacht experience, a huge amount of organization needs to be in place. My organizational skills allow me to present food the way that it is intended. I am also up to date with all the latest cooking techniques, methods & equipment so that as a private chef I can still rival the best and most fancy restaurants.”

Our associate, Nicolas Fry, has spent numerous hours onboard the yacht. Here is his overview:
“SOLO is the perfect combination of performance and luxury designed by Francesco Paszkowski and built by Tankoa.

On the main deck, the 7m infinity pool is another great area to spend time with your guests. The sky lounge aft feature a Jacuzzi.

Yikes, did that get your attention? Perhaps you are planning a mega yacht charter or a luxury sailing charter. You are wondering if “Jaws” is out there in the deep blue. A giant shark waiting to take a bite out of your vacation.
If you’re planning a Florida or Bahama yacht charter, for example, you have little to worry about. Shark attacks of people swimming from their luxury yacht charter vessels an unheard of occurrence! These incredible creatures don’t want to be around a lot of activity and motorized toys and large yachts…
Before people became green and eco-conscious travelers, boaters used to often throw garbage overboard. Now, the real danger is to those land lubbers putting a toe in the water at the beach.
Here is some educational information, in case you have friends who aren’t lucky enough to own a superyacht or prefer luxury sailing charter vacations. Feel free to share this information with them.
Due to its thousands of annual beachgoers, and toothy inhabitants hunting offshore, New Smyrna is the shark attack capital of the world. That’s according to the International Shark Attack File (ISAF), which cites 210 attacks in the beach’s home county of Volusia, Florida. However, gorgeous weather, miles of white sand, and consistent surf breaks draw vacationers into New Smyrna’s waters.
No. 2 on the ISAF for unprovoked attacks is Oahu, where Tiger, Galapagos, and Sandbar Sharks congregate in high numbers, especially near beaches on the island’s north shore. This doesn’t stop surfers, who flock to Velzyland Beach, the Leftovers Break, and dozens of additional wave-beaten beaches where apex predators search and swim.
Though it didn’t happen at a beach, the death of an Austrian lawyer who was diving with them in February 2008 off the Bahamas has sharpened attention in these tropical waters, which Patrick Douglas, owner of Shark Diver, an ocean guiding outfit in San Francisco, said are “among the shark-iest places on the planet.” He has seen 14-foot-long tiger sharks offshore from beaches were thousands of tourists swim and sun each year.
In the shadow of Marin County’s Mt. Tamalpais, Stinson Beach is a spot where great white sharks swim into the shallows. Patrick Douglas said he has sighted them at Stinson – which is a neighboring stretch of sand east from Bolinas Beach (No. 3 on the list) – in less than 20 feet of water. “They’re coming to feed on seals, though it’s not uncommon for surfers to see them,” he said.
In the past 100 years, there have been 90 reported shark confrontations on beaches in this county on Florida’s east coast. Visitors head east from Orlando to the ocean to dip their toes in the tepid waters at Cocoa Beach, Jetty Park, and Klondike Beach, a 24-mile-long wilderness beach accessible only by foot in Canaveral National Seashore preserve.
South Carolina has seen more than 50 total shark attacks over the past century, according to the International Shark Attack File. Of those, 16 attacks are recorded off the beaches of Horry County, where the town of Myrtle Beach is famous as a tourist destination. The good news: The International Shark Attack File cites no fatal shark attacks in South Carolina since 1852.
A freak great white attack in 2008 at Solana Beach in San Diego County, California, killed a 66-year-old swimmer. He was on a morning swim, training with a group when the attack occurred. Solana Beach, home to a population of seals, is at the periphery of the corridor where great sharks commonly roam.
The International Shark Attack File cites one fatality and 12 attacks since 1911 at the beaches of Galveston, Texas, which is a city on an island on the Gulf Coast. It is by no means an attack hot spot, but swimmers are justified in their concern as to what’s roaming offshore.
Over the course of a month last spring, the beaches near Zihuatanejo, a city on the Pacific Coast north of Acapulco, saw three shark attacks and two fatalities. A shark hunt ensued, with local fisherman baiting lines and patrolling waters where surfers regularly bob.

When Champagne gets transported into another country, it’s normal that the pronunciation is adapted to suit the language. However, if you’re curious how to pronounce Champagne names comme il faut (translated = properly), you’re in the right place.
Even if you’re quite confident with French, the names can sometimes be tricky as many originate from other countries such as Germany.
Tip: “on” and “om” sounds are usually nasal sounds in French, such as in Dom Pérignon.
The one that probably causes the most trip-ups is Moët et Chandon, which is pronounced moh-et eh chan-dawn – and not the commonly-said moh-way… oops.
Now you can confidently order a fancy bottle of Champagne (and impress the waiter) on your next holiday to France. >>
Remember. The city of Cannes, France is simply pronounced “can” (not “con”). The Cannes Film Festival is pronounced CAN, not cahn.

For many of us, the observance of Presidents’ Day in the United States goes pretty much unnoticed. We view it as a day off from work, and a day many newspapers run special “President’s Day Sales!”
Have you ever stopped to think about this important day of recognition, and what it means?
Each year, President’s Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February. It was established in 1885 in recognition of the first President of the United State of America – George Washington. Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents.
A quick scan of the internet shows some people feel disdain about our Presidents, past and present. I did a Google search under the keywords, “Is Presidents’ Day Important?” Some chains in forums and chat rooms were a litany of vitriol and cynicism. That’s too bad.
I think many of us miss the point of why this day should be significant. For me, it is less a celebration of the actual people who became US Presidents, and more the recognition of a basic freedom we hold as Americans – the right to freely choose and elect our leaders.
Whether you like or dislike a particular President’s actions and policies, we as free citizens publicly and openly choose our Presidents (and all of our elected officials). This is a sacred right we hold as Americans – one that brave men and women in our armed forces are willing to lay down their lives to protect.
This Presidents’ Day, I’ll probably do what I usually do – attend the final day of the Miami Boat Show, inspecting private luxury yacht charter vessels to present to our clients for their 2016 vacations. I will, however, pause for a moment, and give a nod to our Presidents for their service to our country, and of course, I’ll be wearing my American Flag pin over my heart as a reminder…
More importantly, I’ll reflect on the more than 200 years of opportunities that we as United States citizens have gathered openly, and without fear, to freely cast our ballots and elect a President to lead our nation. We are so fortunate to live in these great United States.

If you owned the massive motor yacht SHERAKHAN the answer is: BOTH!
Originally built in 1965, the current owner bought the commercial vessel in 2005 and undertook a massive refit – basically gutting the entire ship from bow to stern and rebuilt her into a yacht charter vessel with accommodations for 26 guests (most yachts are limited to 12 or fewer). The full rebuild featured all new plumbing, electrical systems, air conditioning, and generators.
It also included a beautiful new paint job – a deep blue hull, with a white superstructure…
Fast forward to 2017, and the owner decided it was time for another refit. All new decks were installed, along with new soft fabrics throughout the guests areas and cabins, and a complete overhaul of all major equipment in the engine room.
As he did in 2005, the owner completely repainted the superyacht charter vessel – this time a clean, crisp white, with subtle grey accents..
The expedition style yacht is available in the Caribbean and will remain there through April. In the summer, the yacht will relocate to the Mediterranean (e.g. Monaco yacht charter or Grand Prix formula 1 races, etc.) for the summer of 2018.
