Benetti Vision 145 Selects Bahamas Yacht Charter Arena for Winter – luxury yacht charter

Posted on

Newly built Benetti motor yacht CHECKMATE, fresh from her inaugural stint in the summer 2013 Mediterranean yacht charter market, has arrived in Fort Lauderdale, in preparation for the upcoming winter season.
Unlike similar-sized yachts that relocate to the Caribbean to offer Virgin Island yacht charter vacations, M/Y CHECKMATE will be based in Nassau and seek Bahamas yacht charter bookings through May, 2014. Profile of yacht CHECKMATE, facing left. Yacht has black hull with white superstructure
Launched earlier this year in Italy, she is the 15th vessel built in the fabled shipyard’s Vision series of semi-custom yachts.  The Benetti Vision 145 yacht CHECKMATE  now joins the many Benetti yacht charter vessels currently in service, such as motor yacht MINE GAMES, and James Bond yacht, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER .

Five guest staterooms are available onboard, including a master cabin on the main deck, featuring a King bed, and ensuite baths featuring his and hers bathrooms. Below deck are four spacious cabins with accommodations for 8 additional passengers, plus two Pullman berths, suitable for small children.

The 45 meter yacht made her public American debut at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with newly-appointed Captain Phillip Nash onboard for the winter season.  At the conclusion of the show, the Italian superyacht repositioned to the Bahamas.  

Her owner then plans to send her north, next summer, to participate in the New England Martha’s Vineyard yacht charter market.   

Weekly rates begin at $200,000 per week, plus all expenses.

Celebrity’s Luxury Yacht Charter Vessel Might Need New Name

Posted on

Yacht owner Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis break up yacht charter

If reports are to be believed, there’s trouble in Paradis for Captain Jack Sparrow.     

People Magazine is reporting Hollywood A-list star Johnny Depp and his inamorata of 14 years, singer Vanessa Paradis are calling it quits.  According the the mag’s cover story, Depp, 48, and the Chanel model, 39, have not appeared together at a public event for more than a year.

To the movie-going public, Depp is best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, the central protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise.  In the yachting industry, the actor is more familiar as the celebrity owner of a mega yacht charter vessel often seen cruising the pristine waters of the Bahamas.

This week’s office water-cooler question: will the split lead Depp to rename his Bahama yacht charters motor yacht, VaJoLiRoJa?

Vajoliroja motoryacht Johnny Depp luxury yacht charter caribbean yacht charter

The boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack. 

If Johnny drops Vanessa, can we assume the multi-syllabic boat name will shed its current first syllable – leaving us with JoLiRoJa?  We kind of like that – if you say it fast enough it sounds like, “Jolly Roger”  — a perfect name for this 156 foot yacht of distinctive character.

luxury motor yacht charter caribbean johnny depp celebrity yacht powerboat charter

But wait, what if it’s Vanessa forcing Johnny to, “Walk the plank?”  If she keeps custody of the yacht, the new name could be VaLiRoJa.   Has a nice sound to it – kinda rolls off the tongue…

Perhaps the best name for the yacht is RANSOM, as in Depp’s reported $300 gross profit sharing booty from Disney’s Pirates movie franchise.

Expect Tax Hike On Your Virgin Islands Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

Doing any boating this spring in the Virgin Islands?  If you are, plan on bringing a few extra bucks with you (or…take a money-saving tip from our company President, Jana Sheeder).

 

Photograph of Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters

This will be the first spring yachting season since the BVI enacted new legislation in 2017, increasing cruising taxes.

Here’s a breakdown of both the previous and current fees:

  • OLD (Seasonal Rates):  $.75 – $2 USD per person per day
  • NEW (Flat, Year-Round Rate): $6 USD per person per day

These rates apply to Virgin Islands yacht charter vessels registered and based in the British side of the territory.  “Foreign”  based yachts – meaning charter yachts coming in from other bases such as the US Virgin Islands and elsewhere — will also see an increase – from $4 to $16 per person per day.

HELPFUL TIPJana Sheeder, our company President, suggests,

“When planning your Virgin Islands yacht charter vacation, ask your charter broker to present yachts ‘based’ in the British (BVI) side of the territory if possible, as opposed to those based in St . Thomas (USVI) or elsewhere.  This small tip can save you 63% in extra cruising fees!!!”

A complete explanation of the tax increase is available on the official  British Virgin Islands website.

========================

This Spring, grab the family, leave the stress of work and school behind, and set sail for adventure in the nearby Bahamas or the Virgin Islands – both a short flight from the USA mainland.  Let 1-800 Yacht Charters Deliver the Superyacht Experience to you and your family.

Hargrave Yacht SEAFARER Joins Bahamas Yacht Charter Market

Posted on

There are many production 100-foot motoryachts in the Bahamas yacht charters market, but owners Dr. and Mrs. Emmons of luxury charter yacht SEAFARER didn’t want a cookie-cutter boat, particularly one costing $6 million. They wanted something that they could personalize to reflect their taste, their love of literature and the arts.

As a result, you will see throughout the boat bookcases built specifically for the Emmons, and nooks created especially to fit their fine collection of marine artwork.

HOT Wheels – Owner Adds Monster Tender to 50 Meter Charter Yacht

Posted on

Mega yacht WHEELS and tender REEL WHEELS

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.


Sailfish catch from motor yacht Wheels and sportfish tender Reel Wheels
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.  

 

Yacht named Reel Wheels underway

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:

 

  • 36′ Yellow Fin Tender with 3 x 275hp engines
  • 20′ Nautica RIB tender
  • 17′ Wide Body Rescue Boat with 115hp engine
  • Two 3-seat Yamaha waverunners
  • Twelve sets of scuba gear
  • Brownie’s Third Lung
  • Underwater scooters
  • Elliptical machine
  • Snorkel gear
  • Assorted towable toys
  • Fishing gear
  • Board games
  • Crestron Central Movie/Music System
  • Kaleidescape Music/Movie Library
  • iPod docking stations
  • XBox

 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.
