Gulp – Private Luxury Yacht Charter Builder Swallows In-Country Rival

Posted on

It appears topping their fatherland rival by building the world’s largest yacht wasn’t good enough for Lürssen Yachts. With that title in hand, the German superyacht builder commenced to gobble up their leading competitor, and take over their entire operation.

Bremen-based Lürssen Yachts has announced the acquisition of Hamburg’s superyacht builder, Blohm+Voss.

According to Peter Luerssen, Managing Partner, “With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss we are taking over a shipyard with a strategically advantageous location and versatile production facilities. We want to use these facilities to complement our existing refit and repair activities and also to offer our customers an ever better service.”

With the 2013 launch of the world’s largest yacht, the 180 meter motor yacht AZZAM, Lürssen wrestled the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich-owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.

Of the 10 largest yachts in service today, Lürssen has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.

In the charter industry, many Lürssen Yacht charter vessels are among, the largest yachts offered for hire, including the 94 meter (308ft) Lürssen yacht Kismet II and the 70 meter (230ft) Lurssen motor yacht Martha Ann.

Planning a Trinity Yacht Charter Has Never Been Easier

Posted on

While European luxury yacht charter customers tend to request superyachts built in Italy, Holland, and France, their counterparts in America have a strong preference for a Trinity yacht charter vessel.

The Trinity yacht charter fleet stands toe-to-toe with the Benetti yacht charter, Lurssen yacht charter, and Feadship yacht charter fleets in terms of luxury amenities and interiors.

Trinity Yachts has earned its place as one of the world’s elite builders of custom superyachts, with an emphasis on European quality, steel and aluminum constructions.  Their goal is to build a truly custom yacht that fulfills all of your unique cruising desires.

Trinity motoryacht MINE GAMES

In a world where most superyachts are constructed on a semi-production basis, this builder is renown for creating the largest yachts available for mega yacht charters, up to 400 feet (123 meters). They work with a number of the world’s most renowned naval architects and interior designers.

Now planning a Caribbean yacht charter or Mediterranean yacht charter holiday on one of these magnificent yachts has never been easier. Currently, there are 17 rent private yacht Trinity-built models available.

The newest and largest yachts include 54 meter KATHARINE, 50 meter MINE GAMES, and 49 meter yachts LOHENGRIN, ANJILIS, and MUSTANG SALLY.

They say, “Good things come to those who wait.”  In the case of #Benetti yacht #ULYSSES, a more timely saying is, “You snooze…you lose!”

To encourage some pre-season charters before the summer crowds arrive in the Mediterranean, 1-800 Yacht Charters has announced deep discounts in the weekly charter rate for Super yacht ULYSSES, now (April) through May, 2016 in Italy, #Monaco, and the South of France.

The charter rate has been slashed from €255,000 per week down to €200,000 per week – a savings of 22%.

With her black hull and cool beige superstructure, the 183 foot Italian Benetti superyacht is imposing is size, but inviting in layout and amenities. Indeed, her exterior is modern and unique in design, while her interior by Stefano Natucci is simply majestic. Classical decorations include marble artworks, chandeliers and rare pictures, in a style that melds Renaissance and Baroque, with a few subtle touches of Gothic Art.

Entering the saloon, you can admire an antique grand piano hand-crafted by Steinway & Sons over 100 years ago. Don’t worry if no one in your charter party knows how to play – the piano has been fitted with a digital controller,  allowing it to play Tchaikovsky, Chopin, or even a more contemporary tune.

Top 5 Yacht Names Inspired By “Love” – #1 Is A Hoot!

Posted on

Logo decorated with hearts and red roses

Valentine’s Day – that yearly opportunity to profess our love to that special someone in our lives.  For many of us, we turn to traditional gifts like chocolate, flowers, or a romantic dinner to express our affection.

Ah, but the super-rich are different. Even gifts of jewelry pale in comparison to the grandiose gestures some HNWI’s (high net-worth individuals) bestow on their significant others and loved ones.

Yep, when it comes to over-the-top, what says “je t’aime mon tresor” more than a gift of a private superyacht???

Of course, the ultimate enhancement to the ultimate gift – naming your yacht to honor the one you love…

In celebration of Valentine’s Day 2016, we share our favorite 5 private yacht charter vessels with names inspired by love.  Some names are whimsical and cute, others haughty.  Our favorite name, # 1, is simple and oh-so-perfect — boasting the two most famous words uttered by almost every man who understands (and appreciates) who’s really the boss!

5.  4YOU – Imagine the surprise when this owner turned to his wife and handed her the keys to a 180 foot megayacht, aptly named, 4YOU.  Launched in 2012, this spectacular yacht from the Amels Limited Edition 180 series was designed by Tim Heywood, and features a stunning modern-chic interior by Laura Sessa Romboli. Up to 12 guests can enjoy a Greek yacht charter vacation, from €280,000 per week

4.  DREAM PRINCESS – Sure, lots of guys call their lady a, “Princess.”  But a DREAM PRINCESS? That’s ramping it up another notch.  A popular yacht for special events (e.g. Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter, MIPIM yacht charter, etc.), this Princess 64 motor yacht is a vessel with a real sense of occasion. She offers exceptional performance and boasts a sleek, sporty profile hiding a spacious three-cabin charter layout.  Her interior is light, with elegant details.  Rates from €18,000 per week

3.  HONEY BEAR – Every once in a while, we find a yacht named by a woman for the man in her life.  The 28 meter Sunseeker 90 yacht HONEY BEAR is a fast, fun yacht for sophisticated yet informal Monaco yacht charter holidays. Her modern yet warm interior offers plenty of space for relaxation, and her open deck areas are perfect for enjoying the sunshine. She provides accommodations for 8 guests in 4 staterooms and is priced from €45,000 per week

2.  LADY BRIT – there are lots of “Ladies” in the charter fleet, Lady Sheila, Lady Victoria, and more. Still, one stands out for her simple, elegant name – the epitome of European class:  LADY BRIT.  Surprisingly, the yacht was not named for the owner’s wife, but rather, in honor of his mother. The 207 foot Feadship yacht LADY BRIT offers the ideal platform for a resort-style St Barts Yacht Charter in the Caribbean, as she features a wellness spa, gymnasium with panoramic views, outdoor cinema, and an authentic Finnish sauna with private access to the water.  Weekly rates start at $445,000 per week

1.  YES DEAR – what man hasn’t uttered those two words to his special someone???  A Voyage 580 Virgin Islands catamaran charter vessel, sail yacht YES DEAR is 58 feet long and 31 feet wide – the perfect design for maximum comfort and stability.  She features 5 cabins for up to 10 guests, and her weekly rates start at $24,000.  Funny side note – her dinghy is named, “No Dear.

Happy Valentines’ Day from Jana Sheeder, President and Owner, and the rest of the team at 1-800 Yacht Charters
