Italian Super Yacht ULYSSES says YES to Chartering in Cuba this Winter

Posted on

After a successful Italy yacht charter season this summer, the owner of Benetti motor yacht ULYSSES has announced his interest to relocate his 56 meter yacht this winter to the warm waters of the Caribbean, and in particular, the new cruising destination Cuba.

The idea of a Cuba yacht charter vacation is now more popular than ever, in large part thanks to the easing of travel restrictions between the United States government and the government of Cuba.  The result of minimal tourism in Cuba for the past 5 decades means much of the country remains as pristine as it did a half-century ago.

Small islets and miles of unspoiled beaches along the southern coast of the island nation are ideal for a warm weather yachting vacation.  Additionally, the opportunity to interact with the residents and their unique Latin culture rounds out the total Superyacht Experience.

Offering great value to potential customers is nothing new for the owner of Italian-built motor yacht ULYSSES, a Benetti 184 foot superyacht.  In fact, the yacht still has a late summer discount in place for charters in the Mediterranean, along the Italian coast.  Although no discounts have been announced yet for Cuba and the Caribbean, we feel it’s only a matter of time before the yacht’s owner dangles a tantalizing offer in front of our noses!

Check back with us during the fall, and we’ll let you know all of the great winter deals available for enjoying a Cuba yacht charter vacation, or any other special deal throughout the Caribbean…

Newest Entries to the Top 100 World’s Largest Yachts, 2015

Posted on

2015 started out with a forecast of ten brand new superyachts scheduled for completion this year, all of which when launched would be ranked in the, “Top 100 of the World’s Largest Yachts.”

With the year quickly drawing to a close, it turns out 8 of the 10 were completed and launched on schedule – a testament to their builder’s ability to deliver a yacht on schedule (although only the builder and owner know for sure if the yacht was also delivered, “on budget”).

Here are the 8 newest entries to the list of the 2015 world’s largest yachts, along with their position in the top 100:

Rank in

Top 100               Name                                  Length                                 Builder

19                          GOLDEN ODYSSEY            123.20m (404’2”)           Lurssen

33                          ULYSSES                              107m (351’)                       Klevin

37                          SYMPHONY                        101.50m (333’)                 Feadship

49                          ROYAL ROMANCE            92.50m (303’5”)             Feadship

54                          ORCHID                              91m (298’6”)                     Lurssen

74                          AQUIJO                               85.90m (281’9”)               Oceanco

85                          SAVANNAH                        83.50m (273’11”)             Feadship

93                          ROMEA                               81.80m (268’4”)               Abeking & Rasmussen

 

Dutch über-builder Feadship leads the way with three top 100 megayachts, with Germany’s Lurssen Yachts delivering two, including the largest newest yacht launched in 2015 – the 123 meter motor yacht GOLDEN ODYSSEY.

Private yacht charter clients might be disappointed that only one of these new yachts is immediately slated to enter the yacht rental market – the Abeking & Rasmussen yacht ROMEA.  Based in the Med, The Monaco yacht charter vessel has set her 2015 inaugural season rental rate at Euro 875,000 per week [plus running expenses, of course!].

Yacht profile

Feadship and Lurssen enthusiasts don’t despair – these builders have plenty of behemoth yachts available for hire, including the 85.10 meter Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE, and the 81 meter Feadship yacht AIR.

Check back with us in late January, as we plan to release the list of the 2016 forecast of the newest yachts scheduled to join the top 100 world’s largest yachts!
