Here’s an opportunity to stretch a week-long vacation into a 10 night escape without paying one extra penny.
The 137′ Palmer Johnson motor yacht SYRENKA is offering 10 days for the price of 7, from now through the end of April, 2012 in the Caribbean.
The weekly rate is $85,000 plus running expenses.
Launched as motor yacht LADY JENN in 1984, the yacht’s new owner just completed a major refit and the four-deck, 137-foot Palmer Johnson, now named motor yacht SYRENKA looks better than new.
This extremely popular luxury yacht charter vessel is now appointed with a refreshingly comfortable new interior featuring supple leathers and Ralph Lauren soft furnishings in shades of blue, white, ivory, and brown. Other enhancements include extra-wide passageways, an elevator, and wheelchair accessibility on three decks. A wheelchair is also available onboard.
On the main deck, an inviting conversation area leads forward to the dining salon with seating for ten guests at an oval table. One deck up, the spacious sky lounge serves as the yacht’s central gathering spot. The 50” flat panel TV in the lounge is surrounded by a large, circular settee with seating for 10, with additional seating in the aft ringed by oversized viewing windows. Sliding glass doors open to the guest deck with shaded settees and another large table for all’aperto (outdoor) dining.
On top level serves as the sun deck, and comprises two large areas, both of which can be shaded by a rollout awning. One area is fitted with a semicircular settee and table – perfect for cocktails or breakfast. The second seating area offers four lounge chairs, two large wicker chairs, a wet bar, and grill.
The full-beam master suite, located on the main deck, is tastefully appointed in a medley of fine woods and natural fabrics and includes an oversized ensuite bathroom. Adjacent to the master suite is a smaller cabin with a small double bed. Four additional ensuite staterooms are located on the lower deck: a VIP suite with queen bed, two additional queen staterooms, and one twin-bedded stateroom.
Onboard recreational equipment includes a 17’ Novurania tender for transporting guests, and a golf cart for shoreside explorations.

What could be better than experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation in the warm waters of the Caribbean? That’s easy: experiencing a Heesen yacht charter vacation AND saving $50,000 to boot!
The charter manager for motor yacht SEVEN SINS just sent us an email inviting our clients to take advantage of a fantastic offer — a 40% price reduction on charters between January 5 and 28, 2017.
The published weekly rate for the 43.80m (143′ 8″) yacht is $125,000. Shaving 40% from this price drops her weekly rate to $75,000 – a whopping savings of $50 LARGE!
Known for their unique speed among large superyachts, and their sleek exterior lines and modern interiors, Heesen yacht charter vessels like motor yacht OCTOPUSSY (once the world’s fastest yacht), and Formula 1-inspired superyacht AURELIA are among the most popular charter yachts for clients who appreciate the advantage of a swift vessel. The advantage of a fast yacht means that charterers can enjoy more anchorages in a shorter amount of time, as compared to slower yachts. Thus, a vessel like yacht SEVEN SINS can easily incorporate a charter from St. Martin and St Barts in the leeward islands of the Caribbean, with an outing to the Virgin Islands far to the north – all within a week’s time.
SEVEN SINS offers accommodations for 10 guests in 5 staterooms. Her manager put together a list of the yacht’s KEY FEATURES:
This stunning Heesen yacht charter vessel just completed a holiday charter in St Maarten on January 2nd. Her calendar for the remainder of January is currently wide open.
BUILT/REFIT: 2005 / 2015
LENGTH (LOA): 43.80m (143′ 8″)
GUESTS: 10 in 5 cabins
CREW: Captain Xavier Penez + 7
Before arriving in the Caribbean in December, the yacht spent the summer in French Polynesia. Here’s a copy of a testimonial written by a client to the owner of yacht SEVEN SINS at the conclusion of his Heesen yacht charter superyacht experience in the Pacific:
“Dear (Owner’s name),
You don’t know me but, although we have never met, I think I know more than a little about you.
I just finished a charter of the M/Y Seven Sins in French Polynesia. And based on everything I saw and experienced on your boat and with your crew tells me that you not only have fine taste, but you have the same eye for quality and pay the same attention to detail that I try to do in my own projects.
I develop, own and operate retail and mixed use real estate projects in the Dallas, Texas area. And though it drives many around me crazy, I cant (sic) rest unless every element of my project is perfect…from the design, to the construction, to the finishes and materials, to the retail and restaurant tenants [and their own design and finishes!], and beyond.
On the Seven Sins, I saw that same unwillingness to accept ‘good enough’ or live with things that work ‘pretty well.’ I’ll be honest…I looked hard to find flaws, problems or issues….not so that I could complain, but rather because I just can’t help myself! It’s who I am and it’s what I do! And I can tell from what I saw…it is who you are too!
I am pleased to report to you that every aspect of your vessel and your crew were, in a word, impeccable. Beyond all of my very high expectations in every way.
This email is simply to say ‘thank you’ for sharing your vessel and its able and charming crew with us. (and) I hope I’ll get the chance to spend some more time on her perhaps again in the South Pacific or perhaps in the Caribbean.
WOW! What a fantastic testimonial from a client with discriminating tastes.
Now, it’s your turn! We often have yacht owners extend gracious discounts of 5% to 10%. On occasion we see deals of 15%. Rarely do we have the opportunity to offer a superyacht, especially a Heesen yacht charter vessel, at a 40% discount.
January is a great time to explore the Caribbean – most of the tourists who came for year-end vacations have returned home. Take advantage of quiet beaches, and anchorages where you’ll have room to enjoy the yacht’s watertoys. Head ashore and meet the island people – friendly natives eager to share their culture and island lifestyle with you.
At full price, SEVEN SINS provides a great superyacht experience…
At 40% off, it’s a deal of a lifetime!
For yacht charter information to plan your own superyacht experience, text SEVEN SINS to the
1-800 Yacht Charters’ 24 hour hotline, 305-720-7245.

Recently, fitness expert Jillian Michaels took to social media to recount what she described as a disastrous Italy private luxury yacht charter vacation. Michaels recounted arriving to find the yacht, “…not only filthy, but it had no hot water, no air con when not docked, no wifi, partial electricity, it was clearly in total disrepair.” Via Facebook, the fitness guru warned her social media followers to beware of online scams. “These scams are becoming extremely prevalent…so be careful when you are dealing with rentals of any kind,” she wrote.
Michaels’ online posts were picked up by mainstream media and even profiled on Television’s syndicated newsmagazine, “Inside Edition.”
Michaels’ comments lead us to two points:
*Was this a scam? In our opinion – NO.
*Could more have been done to avoid what the press has coined as a “Vacation from Hell?” ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!
“I’m confident this is not scam,” states yacht charter maven Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, a company that specializes in discreet private luxury yacht charter vacations for celebrities and UHNWI’s. “While we were not involved in this charter, the client did use a professional charter broker from a well-known company – a competitor of ours with lots of experience and a solid standing in our industry.”
In fact, that charter broker’s actions were scrutinized by the Ethics Committee of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association. The Committee unanimously found the broker acted in good faith and did not commit any ethics violations.
Clearly, however, something went awry for the charter to end after just 4 days of an expected 12 day trip. Exactly what happened is still not clear, as both sides are pointing the finger at each other. Michaels feels she was duped, while the charter brokerage asserts Michaels was in violation of her charter agreement.
If the yacht was, as Michaels asserts, “…in disrepair,” the question that must be asked is: What more can a prospective yacht charter customer do to ensure the yacht is fully operational and what we refer to in the industry as, “charter ready?”
Sheeder suggests two easy steps:
Sheeder then reviews the checklist results and informs the client of any issues, and the timeframe required to make the necessary repairs. “If we, together with the client, are not completely comfortable with the situation or the crew’s ability to guarantee an exceptional private yacht charter experience, we move on and look for another yacht.”
Sheeder revisits the checklist with the captain three or four days prior to the charter to see if any last minute problems have occurred. “Yachts are complex, mechanical vessels with many moving parts that can develop problems – just like an automobile. Many problems are eliminated or minimized by ongoing maintenance, but sometimes, things break unexpectedly. By checking prior to the charter, we can inform the client of the situation as well as estimate the time it will take to make the needed repairs. Most situations are minor and the charter can proceed with no unexpected ‘surprises’ for the client and their guests.”
Many charter brochures feature beautiful photos or videos of the charter yacht. But how do you know when the photos were taken or when the video was shot?
Sheeder suggests using current technology apps to make certain what you see is what you get. “We try to personally inspect the yachts we recommend to our clients, but a lot can change from the time we saw the yacht at a boat show or a private viewing, and the time the client charters the vessel,” says Sheeder. “We have our online charter brochures date coded in our computer. If the images are old, we reach out to the yacht owner and his management team and request current photos. Even casual videos shot on cellphones can capture the overall condition of the boat, and most crews are eager to show their vessel in the best possible light.”
Sheeder also recommends apps like Apple’s FaceTime for iPhones, and Facebook Messenger and Google Duo for Android phones. “Short of the client’s inspecting the yacht themselves, there’s nothing better than a live video feed, with a real-time conversation with the crew, as they walk through and film the yacht and the client watches live.”
If you’re considering a private luxury yacht charter for your next vacation, remember to probe beyond the tantalizing online yacht brochure. Ask your broker if they use a pre-charter checklist and can provide current photos or real-time streaming video of the yacht in its current condition. If they do not or cannot, consider hiring a broker who can go the extra step to protect your vacation investment. By taking these simple steps prior to arriving for your charter, you can greatly minimize the chances of anything less than a memorable holiday at sea…
Winter is just around the corner. Take advantage of pre-season specials on yachts based in the sunny Bahamas, South Florida, and the Caribbean. Your private yacht charter holiday is only a phone call away.

Enthusiasts of Bahama yacht charters are quick to tell you, “It’s Better in the Bahamas.” The waters are warmed by the summer sun, and the blinding white sand beaches seem to stretch from here to the horizon.
Of course, a great summer special rate on a Bahama yacht charter makes it even better, and motor yacht Golden Times is ready to oblige. Based in Nassau this summer, luxury motoryacht Golden Times is offering a deep discount on a mega yacht charter vacation in June or July.
A 10 night holiday is now priced at $33,500 for a family of 6 to 7, or a group of friends. (This is a savings of $8,600 on mega yacht Golden Times’ standard summer rate.)
This 94’ Hargrave motoryacht was built in 2001 and is maintained to the highest standards of safety, comfort, and appearance.
Her main salon is well-equipped for audio visual entertainment. With a comfortable arrangement of sofas both to port and starboard, plenty of guests can gather for movies in front of the large flat screen TV. The formal dining salon is separated from the salon ever-so-slightly by granite-topped cabinetry of light cherry wood and maple inlay.
Accommodations are provided in 3 guest cabins. The Master Stateroom is below amidships and has a King bed and en suite head with adjoining central shower for his and her use. Plenty of closet and drawer space is reserved for charter guests. There is a large flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player.
The VIP Stateroom is situated below amidships to port side with a Queen bed and en suite head with shower. There is a 13” TV with DVD player.
The Twin Stateroom is below amidships to starboard side with two twin beds and one Pullman plus en suite head with shower. It is also equipped with a 13” TV with DVD player.
Of course, Bahama yacht charters are all about the views, the sun, and the sea. On the skylounge deck, a couple may have a cocktail at the bar while enjoying the panoramic view or choose to entertain in a more cozy setting with an additional TV here as well. Leading out to the sundeck, there are teak chaise lounges for reading and relaxing, or there are comfortable sunpads for soaking up the Bahamian sun’s rays. The Jacuzzi may be inviting during the day or for a romantic evening under the stars.
Almost forgot to mention the watertoys! What would a yacht charter holiday be without some fun in the surf? Her extensive toy list includes a 27’ Boston Whaler sport tender with twin 225 horsepower Mercury engines (perfect for some quick exploration of the nearby coves and inlets), a second tender – a 16’ Novurania with 90 horsepower (good for wakeboarding, waterskiing, etc.), snorkel gear, a Laser sailboat, and extensive fishing gear. The water in the Bahamas is tropical, clean, clear, and absolutely magical!
Captain Jay and Chief Stewardess Breanna return in June as newlyweds. They are joined by award-winning chef, Jeff Ciucevich.
Come enjoy a fabulous mega yacht charter experience with a fun, professional crew in the uncrowded and unspoiled islands of the Bahamas.
