New Superyacht Toy Not For Faint Of Heart | Luxury Yacht

Posted on

Just in time for the winter rental season, Trinity yacht charter vessel Motoryacht CARPE DIEM has added a new toy to her watersport equipment list – a Jetovator.”

Be warned – this toy is for designed strictly for adrenaline junkies!

The Jetovator is a water sports accessory that extends the ability of an existing personal watercraft (PWC). It redirects the water thrust from the propulsion unit of a waverunner or jetski along a forty foot hose to the Jetovator body. This water thrust is then used to propel and elevate the Jetovator up into the air…or down into the water!

The rider can also redirect the water thrust of the two front nozzles in order to maneuver the Jetovator in all directions (read between the lines – spin wildly in the air).The Jetovator can go vertical straight up to a dizzying 20-25 feet at speeds of up to 25 mph. For a wetter experience, you can take a nose-dive and actually cruise underwater (to approximately 4-5 feet deep).

A stalwart in the Bahamas yacht charter marketplace, the 191 foot Trinity motor yacht CARPE DIEM already hosts an extensive array of watertoys before adding the Jetovator to her inventory.  Other onboard recreational gear includes:
  • 7 meter Novurania Chase tender with 260 hp engine
  • 6.7 meter Nautica Landing Craft with 260 hp jet drive engine
  • 4 wave runners
  • Trampoline
  • Waterskis
  • Wakeboard
  • Snorkel gear
  • Six sets of SCUBA gear and compressor (for certified divers only)
  • Spin bike
  • Pull-up machine
  • Weight bench
  • Free weights
  • Kaleidescape entertainment system
  • iPod docking stations throughout interior and exterior of yacht
  • Xbox
  • Wii
Staying active with so many watertoys will certainly leave guests hungry for some great food.  Fortunately, the onboard menu is as extensive and exciting as the yacht’s watertoy list.  Peter Williams, the executive chef onboard Trinity yacht CARPE DIEM was kind enough to pass along some samples from his galley.  Email us today for a copy of them at info@1800yachtcharters.com

Luxury motor yacht CARPE DIEM 191 can sleep 10 to 12 guests in a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck, four double guest staterooms, and a convertible gym on the lower deck.  Weekly charter rates begin at $395,000 per week, plus all expenses.=============================

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.

Plus All – Understanding The True Cost Of A Luxury Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

Plus all expenses private luxury yacht charter vacation in mediterranean or caribbean

One of the most common questions posed to charter brokers is, “What does, ‘plus all expenses’ mean?”It’s a fair question, and critical to understand the implications, since the cost to arrange a Mediterranean yacht charter holiday is far more than the prices posted on most charter brokers’ websites.Megayachts – the large, ultra-luxurious vessels that we associate with cruising the Côte d’Azur in the South of France, and docked along the quay in Monte Carlo for Monaco Grand Prix yacht charters – set a rate for the rental of the yacht and the crew, then list the price as, “Plus running expenses.”  This simply means that

the charterer pays a set price for the yacht, and is also responsible to cover ALL costs associated with the operation of the yacht while the charterer and his/her guests are onboard.

Typical running expenses incurred during a charter are food, beverages, dockage, and fuel. 
Depending upon the size of the yacht and the charterer’s penchant for elaborate menus, extended cruising, and vintage alcohols, these running expenses can vary greatly from yacht to yacht, and from charterer to charterer. 
You might ask, “When and how do you pay for these expenses, especially since it is hard to itemize them prior to the conclusion of the trip?”  Enter the concept of the “Advance Provisioning Allowance.”
The Advance Provisioning Allowance, or “APA” for short, is a deposit paid by the charterer and collected by the yacht’s skipper prior to the commencement of the superyacht holiday.  These funds are held by the skipper and dispersed during the course of the charter to cover the ongoing running expenses as they occur.
During the charter, the captain will provide a running account of the usage of the funds and, at the conclusion of the voyage, the captain will present an itemized accounting of expenses to the charterer, along with the refund of any unused funds.

If the APA balance runs low during the charter, the client is expected to provide the captain a sufficient amount in cash to cover the needs for the remainder of the charter. Many charterers prefer not to carry quantities of cash, and their charter broker can hold additional funds and release them, via bank wire transfer, to the captain as needed.Before you book your yacht charter, ask your broker to give you a solid estimate of the running expenses that might be incurred. Your broker will take into account the food and beverage preferences you have requested, along with how much cruising you wish to do (which will determine the amount, and anticipated cost, of fuel needed), to come up with an estimate of your expenses.

There are numerous variables to estimating running expenses, and the computation is best tabulated by your broker and the yacht’s skipper;  for example, depending upon local market availability in your desired cruising ground, food prices may vary greatly from your hometown.  Dockage can range from no fees when anchored away from shore, to thousands of dollars per day, when docked at exclusive marinas.  For special events, like Cannes Film Festival yacht charters, dockage can run two to three times the standard rate.   Fuel costs are important to estimate as well, and can skyrocket depending upon how fast and how far you cruise.
Editor’s note – fuel is also charged for the yacht’s generators when not connected to shore power, as well as for tenders and water toys (so you’ll pay for the fuel used while zipping around on the waverunners).

As a general rule of thumb, the APA requested for sailing yachts is approx 20% of the yacht’s listed charter price, and for motoryachts, the average APA jumps to 30-40%.  Here’s an example of the anticipated total cost of a proposed Italian yacht charter vacation for a fictitious client and nine guests for one week on a 180 foot Trinity yacht charter vessel:

Motor Yacht Rental                                          € 350,000
Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA)*        122,500
Total Cost                                                          472,500
*estimated at 35% by the charter broker
after discussing the charterer’s preferences
as to food, drinks, and desired itinerary.
In actuality, there is most likely one more variable in terms of the actual cost of a charter – the “optional” crew gratuity. Gratuities for exceptional service are routine in the charter industry, and charterers who believe in tipping should remember to budget for this optional expense.
