Whoo hoo! The yacht’s representative contacted us to announce newly reduced rates for the popular 191 foot motor yacht CARPE DIEM for the remainder of the spring in the Bahamas. Her weekly rate has been reduced from $395,000 per week to $375,000 per week.
Additionally, the yacht is now accepting advanced reservations for the summer in the Med.
The 191′ (58.23 meter) Trinity yacht CARPE DIEM is well known and instantly recognizable in the Bahamas. Captain Ryan Butterwick and his crew of 11 have been offering Bahamas yacht charter vacations to affluent travelers for the past three seasons. Most yachts of this size are based further south in the Caribbean during the winter – in St. Martin and St Barts. Captain Butterwick and the yacht’s owner saw an opportunity to be one of the very few large private yacht charter vessels to choose the Bahamas as their home port for the winter and spring.
The representative describes the yacht as,
“…an objet d’art all her own. Her signature interior by Carol Williamson and Associates simultaneously creates a sense of both drama and balance. There is a marvelous display of juxtaposition of design elements, joining opposing materials of Madagascar ebony wood with white onyx stone, varying textures of velvet, satin, and embossed Paltrona Frau leather. Showcased throughout the yacht are vintage fashion photographs, art deco antiques, and lavish furnishings.”
Offering accommodations for 12 guests, the acclaimed charter yacht was a finalist for 2012 World Superyacht Awards for Best Tri-Deck Semi-Displacement Yacht, and the 2012 Showboats Design Awards for Best Interior Design.
For active, well-traveled families seeking a warm-weather getaway this winter or spring, we highly recommend Trinity motor yacht CARPE DIEM. We have personally inspected the yacht on several occasions and know Captain Butterwick and his team will Deliver The Superyacht Experience of a lifetime to you and your guests.

The biggest highlight of snorkeling during a Caribbean yacht charter is usually swimming among schools of fish, or seeing sea turtles and sting rays from afar. However, one charter yacht hopes to offer visitors the chance to frolic with a much larger marine animal.
Richard Branson’s yacht, the sail catamaran NECKER BELLE, is offering two humpback whale watching charters this spring in the Silver Bank, a region in the Atlantic midway between Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic.
From January to March, humpback whales mate and calve in the Silver Bank, before migrating to colder waters. According to Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters,
“you can slip into the water and snorkel with the calves as their mothers watch from a safe distance below.”
Two weeklong expeditions are scheduled on the 105′ catamaran NECKER BELLE, owned by adventurer and business tycoon Sir Richard Branson. Charterers may choose either 16 – 23 February or 8 – 15 March, 2012.
Launched in 2003 and rebuilt in 2009 at Azzura Yachts, Australia, the sail yacht NECKER BELLE was a finalist in the World Superyacht Awards 2010 in the “Best Refitted Yacht” Category. The yacht received a Judges’ Special Commendation.
Four guest cabins accommodate for 8 guests. The master cabin features a queen bed on the back wall. Two VIP staterooms can convert from double to twin berths. The fourth cabin offers a double bed.
All staterooms offer ensuite bathrooms.
Two more guests can be accommodated in the saloon, where the sofa converts to a double bed.
The two aft deck sun pads can be transformed into outdoor berths, which are removable tent-style structures with outdoor element protection. A shower is available in the day head for those using the outdoor berths or saloon.
The price per week is $130,000 and includes the yacht, professional crew, and the guidance of whale expert Tom Conlin of Aquatic Adventures. Running expenses such as food, bar, and fuel are extra.
When whales are sighted, charterers leave the yacht on an inflatable raft, led by naturalist guide Tom CONLIN, to go closer. Snorkeling is not possible sometimes. For instance, when two males are fighting for territory or a few males are trying to impress a female whale. Calves are curious and non-aggressive. Snorkelers approach them using slow, gentle movements.
“Being in the water and seeing a whale is a life-changing experience,” says Sheeder. “You’ll never forget it.”

We first profiled Dubois in May when a handful of the designers yachts swept the World Superyacht Awards. Some of the world’s largest yachts, specifically luxury sailing charter vessels like TWIZZLE, KOKOMO, and RED DRAGON. These yachts trace their pedigree to the studio of Dubois Naval Architects Ltd.
“Most people who organize charitable donations have a good reason to do so,” explains Ed Dubois. “In our case, our second daughter, Minna, was diagnosed with the rare form of childhood cancer – neuroblastoma – in July 2005. Her chances of survival, statistically, were about 40%.”
All funds raised go directly to Sparks. They will fund specific projects in the area of childhood cancer research. This was agreed upon by Ed and Honor Dubois.
To pledge a donation and for further information about the Dubois Child Cancer Fund (DCCF), please contact us HERE. We will direct you to the proper people. Thank you for #makingadifference with us.
