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:

  • Master suite on main deck including office and balcony ensuite
  • Exterior cinema viewing and indoor gym on sun deck
  • Elevator from lower deck to bridge deck
  • Large deck and interior spaces
  • Special amenities; such as hair/beauty salon and massage room
  • Large floor to ceiling windows
  • 7th cabin for occasional workers

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!

New Marina In Costa Rica Hopes To Attract Private Yacht Charter Vessels

Posted on


In less than a year, the demand for a marina to accommodate large private luxury yacht charter vessels in Costa Rica will become a reality.

Golfito Marina Village, a 40-acre development and marina currently under construction in the ocean-side town of Golfito, Costa Rica, is scheduled for completion in 2017.

“Our industry has been clamoring for a deep water marina for megayachts in Costa Rica,” states Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “The Golfrito marina will offer the largest superyacht berths on the entire West Coast of Central America, and expose the nature-oriented tourism of Costa Rica to a whole new demographic – HNWI (high net worth individuals) who prefer the privacy and security of yacht-based accommodations while on vacation.”

Much of the main pier has been installed in phase one of construction. In the coming weeks, 52 finger piers will be completed, with berths for yachts in the 13-46 meter range. An additional four 100 meter finger piers will be installed in phase two.

“Soon, this facility will be able to accommodate two 100 meter yachts on the main pier and three or four 50 meter vessels on the finger piers,” says Sheeder. “Some of our popular vessels like (Lurssen yacht) SOLANDGE and (Abeking & Rasmussen yacht) AMARYLLIS will be able to offer eco-friendly yacht charters to our clients in the winter and spring. This will be a welcome departure from the repetitive trips many charterers take in the traditional cruising grounds of the Caribbean, like St. Martin and the Virgin Islands.”
