Antarctic Yacht Charter Offered By 26-Passenger Luxury Megayacht

Posted on

Sherakhan motoryacht at anchor with inflatable slide deployed from bowSeems growing consumer demand to rent a private yacht in a unique destination has prompted another superyacht owner to relocate for the upcoming winter season. 
On the heels of the recent announcement by the 64 meter Benetti motor yacht SILVER ANGEL to
relocate to the Indian Ocean, word comes that the 228-foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN will relocate to Antarctica this winter. 
Motoryacht SHERAKHAN  first visited Antarctica in 2010. Her return trip will be in January and February 2013, with two confirmed charters on the books.  The superyacht will remain in Antarctica during March 2013 if there is additional charter interest.  Another option the owner is considering is a relocation to Chile, Patagonia, or the Brazilian Amazon to accommodate requests for charters through April.
In May, the megayacht will travel to the Mediterranean for the summer 2013 charter season.
This custom-built 70 meter vessel is ideal for large families or corporate incentive charters, as she is able to accommodate as many as 26 guests. Amenities include a spa deck, an impressive two-level dining room, and an extra-large hot tub on the sun deck.

Experience Rugged Greenland & Beyond Onboard Yacht LEGEND

Posted on

ADVENTURE & LUXURY – HAND IN HAND

The hottest trend in yachting will continue this summer, as motor yacht LEGEND joins a growing  fleet of luxury yacht charter vessels forgoing the Mediterranean for extreme Arctic and Northern Europe adventures.

On the heels of a winter expedition to Antarctica, the 77 meter Icon yacht LEGEND will relocate to northern Europe for the summer, with a spring pitstop in the frozen tundra of Greenland.  Charters have already been secured by action-seeking travelers in both May and June.

READY FOR ADVENTURE?

Activities offered aboard this yacht charter boat include whale watching, heliskiing (heli-skiing), and rides via dog sleds and snow scooters…

With the advent of ultra-luxury expedition yachts entering the charter market, the decades-old adventure travel movement has finally reached the luxury sector of the market. Once the realm of budget-conscious travelers, willingly “roughing it” in hostels and tents,  expedition yachts allow affluent charterers the opportunity to experience an adventure travel vacation without compromising creature comforts.

The growing list of yachts offering activity-oriented charters in the Arctic and northern Europe include 229 foot superyacht SHERAKHAN,  205 foot Icon yacht BATON ROUGE (in Norway in June), and the 238 foot Abeking and Rasmussen motoryacht CLOUDBREAK (scheduled for May 2019 in Greenland).

A closer look at yacht LEGEND demonstrates the appeal of these modern expedition yachts:

KEY FEATURES

  • Commercially certified helipad
  • 3-man submarine
  • Ice-breaking hull
  • Snow scooters (snowmobiles)
  • Balinese spa
  • Cinema
  • Aft-deck heated pool
  • Gym
  • 26 guests in 13 staterooms

Yes, indeed –this luxury yacht charter vessel is packed full of features.  From the helicopter to the 3-person submarine, this yacht allows her guest to explore this cold-weather destinations from entirely new angles. Relaxation can be found watching movies in the cinema, getting a massage in the Balinese-themed spa below deck, enjoying cocktails on deck in the ultra-heated Jacuzzi, or just cuddling up by the fireplace with a good book. More action can be found in the gymnasium, or exploring on the snow scooters, or just coming face to face with the wildlife on land. Perfect photo opportunities for a memorable vacation of a lifetime.

 

HEADCOUNT

A big “plus” of many expedition yachts is the ability to accommodate large families and groups of friends.  Whereas most luxury charter yachts are capped at a maximum headcount of 12 passengers, yachts like LEGEND and SHERAKHAN can both legally and comfortably accommodate 26 guests.

Just Chillin’ –  Expedition Yacht LEGEND Sets Antarctica Yacht Charter Schedule for 2017

Posted on

Jan Verkerk, owner of the 253-foot Icon motor yacht LEGEND, has given us the green light to accept reservations  in Antarctica for the upcoming season, from January 17 through February 18.

Originally built in 1973, Icon expedition yacht LEGEND underwent a complete rebuild and restoration in 2015.  Now complete, she is the only luxury yacht charter ice-breaker vessel in the world.

For Verkerk, this is his second superyacht restoration project – the other being the highly popular 228 foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN – a fixture in the Mediterranean charter market for the past 5 seasons.

Active charterers will delight in the opportunities for adventure offered on M/Y LEGEND.  With accommodations for 26 guests, and space to carry a helicopter and a submarine, the possibilities for cold-weather adventure are endless. Of course, Verkerk made certain to include the mandatory superyacht amenities as well: gymnasium, Balinese spa, sauna, beauty salon, movie theater and swimming pool.   There’s even a medical suite, for any emergencies.

After spending a few weeks in Antarctica, the yacht will head to Greenland for the summer charter season.

If you’re intrigued to step away from your traditional Caribbean charter vacation this summer, let us deliver the superyacht experience to you, your family, and friends in the last great frontier on earth – Antarctica…

Which Color Is Best?   Motor Yacht Sherakhan Gets Makeover

Posted on

If you owned a 228 foot luxury yacht charter vessel, would you paint it deep blue or polar white?

 

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.

 

So what do you think?   Do you think she looks better in blue or in white???
