The excitement of Formula 1 racing comes to Abu Dhabi this month, and the best seat in the house is undoubtedly onboard the private luxury yacht MOGAMBO.
Now moored at Yas Marina, directly adjacent to the race course, the 74m Nobiskrug yacht MOGAMBO is available for an Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yacht Charter. Her weekly rental rate is $650,000, plus running expenses. A 5-night minimum reservation is required, spanning the actual race dates of November 25-27.
Built in 2012, super yacht MOGAMBO looks better than ever, having undergone a partial refit. She’s been fully repainted, and he now has a 7th cabin for added flexibility for charter guests and/or occasional workers. The sundeck Jacuzzi has been significantly enlarged, and the gym has been redesigned.
The yacht’s key features include:
The 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX is the Middle East’s biggest international sporting event and the only twilight race on the F1® calendar. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is just one of two Formula 1 circuit races that directly encompass a marina where guests can enjoy the action from the deck of a superyacht. The other is Monaco. Grand Prix yacht charter vacations in Monaco are famous for their celebrity parties and many racing sponsors hire yachts to serve as private, secure viewing platforms. Much of the course in the Abu Dhabi race hugs the Yas Marina Circuit and viewing the action from a yacht is unobstructed by bleachers or buildings.
The post-race fireworks extravaganza is truly amazing as well!!!
Catch all the action from the deck of your own private yacht charter vessel, from 1-800 Yacht Charters. Text GRAND PRIX YACHT CHARTER to 305-720-7245 for more information. See you on the Circuit!

What could be better than experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation in the warm waters of the Caribbean? That’s easy: experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation AND saving $50,000 to boot!
The charter manager for motor yacht SEVEN SINS just sent us an email inviting our clients to take advantage of a fantastic offer — a 40% price reduction on charters between January 5 and 28, 2017.
The published weekly rate for the 43.80m (143′ 8″) yacht is $125,000. Shaving 40% from this price drops her weekly rate to $75,000 – a whopping savings of $50 LARGE!
Known for their unique speed among large superyachts, and their sleek exterior lines and modern interiors, Heesen yacht charter vessels like motor yacht OCTOPUSSY (once the world’s fastest yacht), and Formula 1-inspired superyacht AURELIA are among the most popular charter yachts for clients who appreciate the advantage of a swift vessel. The advantage of a fast yacht means that charterers can enjoy more anchorages in a shorter amount of time, as compared to slower yachts. Thus, a vessel like yacht SEVEN SINS can easily incorporate a charter from St. Martin and St Barts in the leeward islands of the Caribbean, with an outing to the Virgin Islands far to the north – all within a week’s time.
SEVEN SINS offers accommodations for 10 guests in 5 staterooms. Her manager put together a list of the yacht’s KEY FEATURES:
This stunning Heesen yacht charter vessel just completed a holiday charter in St Maarten on January 2nd. Her calendar for the remainder of January is currently wide open.
BUILT/REFIT: 2005 / 2015
LENGTH (LOA): 43.80m (143′ 8″)
GUESTS: 10 in 5 cabins
CREW: Captain Xavier Penez + 7
Before arriving in the Caribbean in December, the yacht spent the summer in French Polynesia. Here’s a copy of a testimonial written by a client to the owner of yacht SEVEN SINS at the conclusion of his Heesen yacht charter superyacht experience in the Pacific:
“Dear (Owner’s name),
You don’t know me but, although we have never met, I think I know more than a little about you.
I just finished a charter of the M/Y Seven Sins in French Polynesia. And based on everything I saw and experienced on your boat and with your crew tells me that you not only have fine taste, but you have the same eye for quality and pay the same attention to detail that I try to do in my own projects.
I develop, own and operate retail and mixed use real estate projects in the Dallas, Texas area. And though it drives many around me crazy, I cant (sic) rest unless every element of my project is perfect…from the design, to the construction, to the finishes and materials, to the retail and restaurant tenants [and their own design and finishes!], and beyond.
On the Seven Sins, I saw that same unwillingness to accept ‘good enough’ or live with things that work ‘pretty well.’ I’ll be honest…I looked hard to find flaws, problems or issues….not so that I could complain, but rather because I just can’t help myself! It’s who I am and it’s what I do! And I can tell from what I saw…it is who you are too!
I am pleased to report to you that every aspect of your vessel and your crew were, in a word, impeccable. Beyond all of my very high expectations in every way.
This email is simply to say ‘thank you’ for sharing your vessel and its able and charming crew with us. (and) I hope I’ll get the chance to spend some more time on her perhaps again in the South Pacific or perhaps in the Caribbean.
WOW! What a fantastic testimonial from a client with discriminating tastes.
Now, it’s your turn! We often have yacht owners extend gracious discounts of 5% to 10%. On occasion we see deals of 15%. Rarely do we have the opportunity to offer a superyacht, especially a Heesen yacht charter vessel, at a 40% discount.
January is a great time to explore the Caribbean – most of the tourists who came for year-end vacations have returned home. Take advantage of quiet beaches, and anchorages where you’ll have room to enjoy the yacht’s watertoys. Head ashore and meet the island people – friendly natives eager to share their culture and island lifestyle with you.
At full price, SEVEN SINS provides a great superyacht experience…
At 40% off, it’s a deal of a lifetime!
For yacht charter information to plan your own superyacht experience, text SEVEN SINS to the
1-800 Yacht Charters’ 24 hour hotline, 305-720-7245.

Don’t ask me to accurately describe the new exterior color scheme of super yacht POLAR STAR. All I can tell you is, “I love it!”
For the past 12 seasons, the 63 meter yacht has traveled around the Mediterranean each summer (and the Caribbean in the winter), instantly recognizable with her striking deep blue hull. Now, after an extensive 6-month refit in Spain, including a 3 meter swim platform extension, the Lürssen private yacht charter vessel has turned her image on its head.
The blue color is no more…replaced with a shade of white…or is it grey…?
Immediately after the refit, Charl van Rooy, editor of Superyacht Times described the new exterior colors as, “…military light-grey.” Fast-forward to this week, and van Rooy now says it’s a, “…light sand coloured paint scheme.” In fairness to van Rooy, it’s not his fault – the colors are subtle and faint, and depending upon the sunlight, and refection of the water, it does appear to be different shades of off-white.
That, of course, is the point. The owner was looking for something fresh – a new image for an iconic yacht that has visually dominated the Monaco yacht charter market for more than a decade.
If you’ll be in the South of France this summer, keep an eye open for Lürssen yacht POLAR STAR as she charts a new course and showcases her new colors!
We’ll revisit the yacht’s refit in another blog – coming soon. Until then, if you are interested in your own Superyacht Experience in the Med on this or another Lürssen (or Benetti or Feadship or Abeking & Rasmussen or…) yacht charter vessel, visit our selection of Mediterranean yachts for charter at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/monaco-yacht-charters/ today!

After some shipyard time in Georgia, the popular and highly successful charter yacht TAIL LIGHTS headed to the Bahamas in charter ready and Bristol condition. The 116ft Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS looked amazing and had lots of new toys and goods onboard to start her first charter in Nassau on November 21st.
A recent charter guest took the time to share her thoughts about her family’s superyacht experience onboard Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS. What lends credence to her comments is the fact she has chartered three times prior. In her own words,
“We just got off the boat this morning. This was my fourth trip on a (luxury yacht) charter vessel and found it to be at least equal to but in many ways better than the previous trips I had taken. Captain Steve Kemp was awesome. He was extremely organized and looked after every detail of the trip. When we needed to adjust he was quick to respond and very accommodating. The crew was fantastic and also very accommodating. The girls were all Johnny-on-the-spot with food, drinks, and any other need we had. The staterooms were always looked after and kept pristine during our trip. Very pleasant personalities and fun to talk to. Jeff made sure the boat and tender were operating perfectly and was also very accommodating when we wanted to tour the engine room. The boat itself was appointed very nicely and it was obvious that she had been upgraded recently. It looked brand new. I would highly recommend (yacht) Tail Lights and its crew, particularly Steve the captain. I certainly would look into chartering her again.”
Built in 2011, the yacht underwent an extensive $1.5M refit in 2016. Here’s a list of the improvements made:
The yacht accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms — 8 beds – 2 doubles, 2 twins, and 1 convertible configured as 2 Pullmen, 1 King, 2 Queens, 1 Double, and 4 Singles.
Rates for TAIL LIGHTS are from $75,000 per week, plus all running expenses and any applicable taxes.

OK, we’ll admit it – when Dee Kraley, manager of motor yacht SuRi, first invited us onboard the former oil rig supply boat, we were skeptical. Was it really possible to take an old ship built in 1978 by Halter Marine, cut her in half to extend her overall length from the middle, and transform her into a modern expedition yacht charter vessel?
After two extensive rebuilds and a 2016 refit, the answer is a resounding, “YES!” The “old supply ship” is indeed one of the most luxurious charter yachts available in her size and price category.
Adding 11 meters to her overall length significantly boosted her volume, both indoors and on deck.
Yet more impressive than her transformation is her owner’s commitment to creating the ultimate adventure travel vessel in the charter market.
While most superyachts carry a respectable inventory of watersports gear, this yacht takes it to another level – with multiple tenders, a helicopter, seaplane, jet skis, hoverboard, scuba diving equipment, quadskis, and so much more. Twenty (20) active, athletic crewmembers add to the neverending fun, excitement, and adventure enjoyed by charter guests.
So where do you base a yacht filled-to-the-brim with toys? It must be a destination with endless opportunities for exploration and water-themed adventure. The answer? The South Pacific and the islands of Fiji, French Polynesia, and Indonesia.
A favorite anchorage for yacht SuRi and her charter guests are the islands of Raja Ampat, an archipelago of 1500 islands located off the northwest tip of New Guinea. Marine life thrives here, and the bio-diversity is unlike anywhere else in the world – with hundreds of species of corals and reef fish, along with whales, dolphins, and giant rays.
Check out this amazing action-packed yacht charter video of motoryacht SuRi and her onboard guests enjoying the breathtaking beauty of Raja Ampat:
Come enjoy The Superyacht Experience onboard motor yacht SuRi. Available summer 2018 in French Polynesia and Fiji, and priced at $350,000 per week (plus operating expenses like food and fuel) for up to 12 guests. Click HERE for further information…
WHAT’S IN A NAME? No, she is not owned by Tom Cruise or Katie Holmes or daughter, Suri. Her name, SuRi, is the combination of her owners’ first names. Just in case you were wondering… 😉
