How to Chill After Covid Lockdown [quick strategy]

Posted on

FINALLY

Your hometown lockdown is lifted.  Your arm hurts like heck where they stuck you with the Pfizer-BioNTech.

Things are getting back to normal.  You are vaccinated, and oh-so-ready to reschedule that summer 2020 yachting escape.

Don’t worry.  France, Italy, and Spain are right where you left them.  So, what to do after Covid?

Close your eyes.  Do you see the beaches?  The dockside cafes?  Imagine laying poolside – on the sundeck of superyacht ALFA NERO

GETTING THERE…

Unfortunately, even with much of Covid in the rearview mirror, the drudgery of getting to the Mediterranean sinks in.

Without question, it’s a LONG flight to the Med.  Getting directly onboard a superyacht after hours in the air is not appealing.  Understandably, no one wants to waste their first day on the sea, feeling dog-tired and irritable.

 

A PLANNED LAYOVER?

Fortunately, there is a simple solution to reducing jet lag and stress before your yacht charter begins. What is the solution?  Check into a boutique property and decompress for a day!

A pre-charter layover is a great way to unwind after traveling. Let your yacht crew scramble with last-minute preparations.  You will be relaxing in a calming, resort environment.

 

WHAT TO DO ON BEFORE THE YACHT

You can lay by the pool, or catch up on some needed sleep.  Certainly, a stroll around town and a late-night espresso in a nearby café will have you in the right frame of mind.

 

IT’S TIME TO GO YACHTING

Then, the next day, your crew picks you up from the resort and whisks you away to your awaiting superyacht.

 

Here are three, can’t-miss layover hospitality venues to help you get your groove back before you board your luxury charter yacht.

 

 

SIX SENSES, IBIZA 

First, this new resort is scheduled to open in July, 2021.  It is located in a quiet, almost-hidden cove in Xarraca Bay.  Four-com magazine describes the resort as, “This magical cove with unobstructed sunset views and special energy is where the golden hour lasts until the Cinderella hour. Sundowner, guitar, or loved one in hand, anything feels possible. Live layers of programming and experiences will constantly evolve to celebrate music, art, sustainable fashion, spirituality, pioneering wellness, culinary exploration and culture, all synonymous with the island.”  How’s that for a glowing endorsement?

We’re big fans of resorts with access to a beach and a deep-water bay.  In fact, after a day of unwinding, your yacht’s crew can bring the ship’s tender right up to the beach.  You and your companions can enjoy a short tender ride to your awaiting yacht.  And let’s be honest – is there anything cooler than seeing your yacht at anchor, knowing everyone is watching you as you tender over and board on the aft swim platform???

 

 

The Gritti Palace, Venice

Second, this noble former palace and now hotel dates back over 500 years. It overlooks the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice.   In fact, each of the hotel’s 82 guest rooms and suites offers unobstructed canal views.  This is an intimate private residence masquerading as a hotel.  Enjoy delicious Venetian cuisine at the Club del Doge restaurant.  Too tired for dinner after a long flight?  No problem.  Just grab a table for cocktails on the terrace at the Riva Lounge.  The next day, your yacht’s tender can pick you up at the property’s own dock.  This is reminiscent of the Venice Biennale and the Venice Film Festival!

The ??? Resort & Spa, ???

No, it’s not a typo. The question marks have been inserted for a reason.  Indeed, we did promise you the name of three hospitality venues for the perfect pre-charter layover.

So why the secrecy, you might wonder?  The reason is simple.  It’s our passion at 1-800 Yacht Charters, to Deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to you. Part of that experience is the creation of a bespoke luxury yacht charter vacation for you and your travel companions.  Anyone can write a blog with a list of beautiful hotels and resorts.  We prefer to listen to you; to hear about your style preferences.  Basically, we want to understand your motivations and expectations when you travel.

 

By listening to you, we can create the experience you desire – the one that will enrich your life…

 

Let’s do this.  Contact us and tell us where you want to go yachting.  We’ll ask you some questions and we’ll come up with several yachts for your consideration.  Of course, we’ll also suggest a great hospitality property or boutique resort where you can chill before your charter!  After Covid, it’s time to get back to normal!

 

Please call us at 305-720-7245 or fill out our convenient online yacht charter inquiry form at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ .

Superyacht Offers Venice Film Festival Yacht Charter Experience in September

Posted on

VENICE FILM FESTIVAL YACHT CHARTER

Looking for a way to entertain potential clients during the upcoming Venice Film festival 2015?  Nothing says, “Thank you for the opportunity” to a prospect quite as well as a soiree onboard a multi-million euro megayacht.

 

SUPERYACHT FORCE BLUE

The Festival runs from September 2 through 12, and the Royal Denship yacht FORCE BLUE is available for hire in Venice and is offering a discounted rate to secure a booking.  Normally priced at €235,000 per week in September, the 207 foot yacht has lowered her price to €195,000 per week (a savings of €40,000).

GLAMOUR AND BUZZ

Along with Cannes, Venice has long been considered one of Europe’s most glamorous, buzzy film events.  A-list celebrities, but more importantly, film makers and buyers attend in the hopes of securing lucrative deals to promote and release independently produced movies.

 

CHARTERING FOR EVENTS TAKES PREPARATION

To charter a yacht for a special event normally takes many months of advance logistical planning, and securing dockage next to an event venue often requires a reservation a year or so in advance.   Fortunately, it is easier to secure last minute space in Venice, as the abundance of waterways make it easier to use the yacht’s tenders to get to and from onshore venues.

THE YACHTS ARE THE VENUE

Large yachts like Royal Denship FORCE BLUE become a venue unto themselves. They serve as a place to conduct private business negotiations.  Also, charterers entertain business associates and prospective clients onboard.  With numerous entertainment areas, both inside the yacht and on her massive deck, hundreds of guests can gather to socialize.  After the guests leave, the charterer and a select number of special guests (totalling 12 or fewer) can use the yacht as a private floating hotel – with a full-time staff of 19 onboard to attend to meals and cater to the guests’ every whim.

 

ONBOARD AMENITIES OF FORCE BLUE

The yacht’s onboard amenities include onboard cinema (perfect for private film screenings), full gymnasium, hairdresser’s room, and a spa center, featuring Hamman steam shower, mud bath, sauna, hydro massage Jacuzzi, and massage room.

UPGRADE THOSE GATHERINGS

Social gatherings can be upgraded to full-scale dance parties.  The yacht’s aft bridge deck can be transformed into a disco.  There is a professional DJ station complete with psychedelic lights and disco woofer speakers.

Choose to lay a white carpet down on the dance floor, if you wish. This allows guests to dance with their shoes on.  Most yachts do NOT allow guests to wear shoes on deck.

 

AND DON’T FORGET THIS YACHT TRAIT

There is one component that makes the yacht hire so unique and practical.  In specific, total privacy.  No one steps onboard a yacht without the Charter’s permission.  This discreet venue means businesspeople can negotiate deals in seclusion.  Additionally, they entertain special guests.  All of this away from the attention of gawkers, competitors, and the paparazzi.
