Motor yacht JO, the 164-foot Benetti yacht charter vessel has announced plans to spend the winter season in the Caribbean.
Voted “Best Family Charter Yacht 2011“ by Superyacht World magazine, the 2004 Benetti motoryacht JO offers accommodations for 12 guests in 6 staterooms.
Captain Ian Robertson reflects on what makes this yacht unique in the industry – the combination of a tranquil environment with modern amenities.
“There is an atmosphere that radiates calmness, and you feel it from the moment you step aboard,” says Robertson. “The yacht as a whole is meticulously maintained, participating in two yard (maintenance) periods per year. Our owner understands the importance of updating tenders, watersports equipment, and the onboard entertainment equipment on a regular basis.”
“There are plenty of watertoys both for children and adults,” says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters. “The 12 crew members onboard motor yacht JO are among the best family-friendly crewmembers in the industry.”
Foodies will appreciate the talents of chef David Beltran, as he cooks with both passion and flare. His signature dish is “Veal Zurich.” At mealtime, Beltran orates his menus to the guests, not in any traditional format, but in rhyming couplets – often interjecting a few words in Italian, Spanish, German, and French!
Similar yachts available for hire in the Caribbean include 50 meter motor yacht WHEELS, 58 meter yacht SKYFALL, and 45 meter motor yacht ILLUSION.
Rates for motor yacht JO range from $175,000 per week for non-premium periods to $225,000 per week for year-end holidays. Running expenses are extra.

Good times in the Bahamas just got even better, with the addition of the world’s largest tender to a luxury mega yacht charter vessel.
Motor yacht WHEELS, a 50 meter behemoth in her own right, has just added a 24-meter (80′) sportfish tender to her already impressive inventory of watertoys.
Far too large to be carried or towed, the tender, named REEL WHEELS, will follow closely along during charters, ever available for the use of the charter guests.
Amazingly, the yacht’s current tender, a large, Yellow Fin 36 is still in tow. With two high performance sportfish tenders, there’s no excuse for any guests to be left behind when its time to hit the water for fishing, diving, and snorkeling excursions.
The envy of any deep-sea angler, REEL WHEELS is a 2007 Merritt 80 Sportfish yacht, fully-rigged with state-of-the-art fishfinder electronics and fishing gear.
The “REEL” advantage of adding this sportfish yacht to the charter package is the capacity to bring more charter guests. REEL WHEELS has a master cabin with room for two guests. This means the total charter party for a vacation onboard WHEELS is 14 passengers. This is great news considering most megayachts can accommodate no more than 12 guests.
The addition of this 80′ tender rounds out a watersports inventory that includes:
Just reading the list of onboard toys is exhausting!
There is NO extra charge, to bring REEL WHEELS along, in tandem with Trinity motor yacht WHEELS 164. The charter price remains as before: $200,000 per week plus expenses.
