The motor yacht 4A wins prestigious award for luxury mega yachts.

The magnificent 38.5 meter yacht 4A won Best New Series under 40 meters at the 18th Annual ShowBoats International Awards in Monaco in 2008.

The annual ShowBoats International Monaco Rendezvous took place at Monaco’s Port Hercules. Throughout that prestigious show, the highly innovative mega yacht 4A was a true head-turner, with her modern lines, striking features and original design.

Featuring “sea terraces” on both sides of the main salon, master cabin, and gym, as well as 007-James Bond-like lifting gull-wing doors on the bridge deck, this luxury motor yacht charter vessel is a showstopper in every port. Built by San Lorenzo Yachts, the demand for this megayacht for a Mediterranean yacht charter is huge.

Offering contemporary good looks throughout her spacious and sumptuous interior and out onto her stylish aft and fly decks, this is the perfect luxury charter yacht for stylish chartering, be it a Croatia yacht charter, an Ibiza yacht charter, or a Cannes yacht charter.

The Rendezvous began with a sparkling evening champagne yacht hop on the 25th June for ShowBoats International’s select guests. Then on the 26th June the glamorous awards dinner was held at the Monte Carlo Sporting where the owner of this mega yacht charter vessel collected his trophy. Her owner, Captain Frank Hess, and San Lorenzo Yacht’s director, Massimo Perotti and team represented the yacht.

This megayatch sleeps 10 guests in 5 cabins. A professional crew of 6 serves Mediterranean yacht charter guests. The vessel has a semi-displacement aluminum hull, which is capable of a cruising speed of 22 knots and is powered by 2 MTU 12V 4000 M90 engines. Able to move quickly and easily between beach and port, this new megayacht has great outdoor entertainment spaces including a fantastic sundeck as well as a stylish aft deck. She also features a study, a gym, gull wing doors, a Kaleidescape audio/visual entertainment system, and sea terraces for al fresco dining.

This charter yacht accepts both term charters (multi-night vacations) as well as static charters for special events such as MIPIM, Cannes Film Festival, and the Monaco Grand Prix. The open-air top deck of this megayacht is the perfect place to entertain celebrity attendees at the Cannes Film Festival. It is also a great viewing spot to watch the Formula 1 race cars zip around the streets of Monaco during the Monaco Grand Prix.

Tenders and toys include a speedy Novurania 5.30 meter tender with a 30 hp inboard diesel engine, a 3-person Yamaha VX 110 waverunner, 2 Sea-Doo underwater scooters, waterskis, wakeboard, and towable donut. Audio-visual equipment provides music and movies to all decks, salons, and cabins.

The Kaleidescape audio-visual entertainment system is unique in that it is programmed for all German channels, but with the flip of a switch can receive all English channels. Communications is provided via a V-satellite system that offers high speed Internet, wifi, fax, and phone service.

Approved RYA Water Sports Center in 2018.

The 33.8 meter motor yacht ADRIANA III has long been a fixture in the Mediterranean yacht charter marketplace, as well as in New England. Her manageable size and draft allow her access to protected coves – she can go where larger megayachts cannot.

Built in Taiwan, Horizon 110 yacht ADRIANA III is fully MCA compliant, which means she meets stringent safety standards – a welcoming notion for potential charter clients. The yacht is capable of a top speed of 18 knots, and cruises at 14 knots.

Relocating for New England yacht charters in the summer months, mega yacht ADRIANA III offers a versatile sun deck with outdoor barbeque, large sun pads and an on-deck Jacuzzi style hot tub.

An in-house design team is responsible for the naval architecture of all Horizon 110 models, and this vessel’s sophisticated exterior appearance is a real head-turner. Luxury yacht interior styling is credited to Juan-Carlos Espinosa Studios.

Accommodations are available for up to 8 guests. The combination of king, queen and single berths make this yacht the perfect choice for family vacations. The master stateroom features a king-sized bed, bathtub, shower and toilet. Guest cabin number 1 offers two twin beds, while cabin number 2 has a queen-sized bed, and the 3rd cabin offers a double bed. All guest cabins have ensuite bathrooms with showers.

Fully-air conditioned (a must for summer cruising), indoor entertainment includes a Kaleidescape movie and music system with hundreds of digital songs and movie titles. There are also multiple CD players and DVD players throughout the yacht, as well as satellite television.

Beautiful motor yacht ALEXANDAR V was built by ISA. A unique feature of yacht is the color of its hull, which is called “desert sand.” A light yellow tan shade, the designers diverted from the usual white or dark colored hull that you generally see on large luxury Mediterranean yacht charter motor yachts.

The exterior of motor yacht ALEXANDAR V, a 48-meter Mediterranean yacht charter superyacht, was designed by Walter Franchini, while the interior was designed by architects Daniele Socci and Rita Luzzi.

The interior design of the Mediterranean yacht charter superyacht utilizes ebony, maple, and teak, along with leather and marble. The owner’s suite is located on the main deck and is extremely spacious. The walls are light maple and the floors are ebony, as are the desk and some of the tables, which combine the ebony with leather. The double bed includes a leather headboard and a flat screen television. The carpet is white in contrast to the dark wood and leather and works as a compliment to the light maple walls.

The owner’s bath is also exceptionally spacious, even for a mega yacht, and is done in light maple and striking Arco Iris onyx on the countertops and floors in a beautiful “blonde” color. The sinks, tub, and toilet are in white, and the bath includes a Jacuzzi and a shower with Bisazza mosaics on its walls.

The main deck living room (saloon) on this luxury yacht charter mega yacht is entered through French doors and contains four columns that are covered in brown leather. The furniture is rendered in white and brown tones, with brown leather tables and sofas and chairs in white fabric and brown leather. The enormous area contains two sofas, a loveseat, and two chairs for seating that can accommodate all guests. A glass panel separates the lounge area from the dining area, and the glass has a picture of the boat etched within it.

The mega yacht dining area contains floors of teak and furniture made of ebony, including a table that seats ten. The aft deck lounge area includes loveseats and chairs to seat eight.

The lower deck of the superyacht contains four guest suites. Two of suites are doubles, and two contain twin beds. All suites feature maple walls and Arco Iris onyx in the bathrooms.

The upper deck saloon (living room) is equipped with an entertainment system and large flat screen television. The colors and furniture are similar in style to the saloon on the main deck with sofas made of white fabric and brown leather. The VIP suite is the only cabin on the upper deck and is located toward the stern. It features a double bed and two desks in ebony with leather tops that are lighter in color. Like the owner’s suite, the bath includes his and hers sinks and utilizes the same beautiful Arco Iris onyx on the countertops and floors.

The skylounge offers a quiet retreat with couches and a dining table that seats ten.

The sun deck contains a dining area near the bow, under an awning. It includes a dining table, white sofas, chairs, and a barbecue. The mid-sundeck area contains a bar with stools built into the construction of the large Jacuzzi. Closer to the stern is a sunbathing area.

Sleek, modern, and tres fast, luxury catamaran ALLURES is a unique 100-foot sailing yacht from France.

Completed from a custom mold at Compositeworks in La Ciotat, France, (near Marseilles), ALLURES was started by another company that since has ceased production. She is not exactly an orphan her owners take great pride in her, but to date, she is an only child and is indeed unique.

This stunning cat is a head-turner. ALLURES is the product of a consortium including Rivoyre Ingenierie, Michael Schutte, J. Henry Martinak, and Alexandre Fortabat, with exterior styling by associated designers. Her owner and his wife were both very involved in the build project right from its conception. Four years in gestation, all details aboard this luxury yacht were finely honed with great care and attention. While she is a fast catamaran (26-knot top end), she certainly wasn’t built in a hurry.

The owner’s wife is responsible for the clean, uncluttered interior design. The main salon is contemporary and light, accented by satin mahogany and matte-finished built-in sycamore furniture. The overall color palette is a delicious mousse au chocolat and creme brulee. Entering from the aft main deck, the main salon offers an open plan, making for clear visibility from the bow to the stern. There is a wine and espresso bar to port and two leather sofas configured in an L-shape to starboard. The formal dining area with a round table and transparent chairs designed by Philippe Starck enjoys large windows and provides another bright and comfortable seating area. Despite this incredible dining location, in fine weather, dining most often takes place on the shaded aft main deck.

There are accommodations for eight guests in four staterooms. The on-deck master suite is arranged like a duplex apartment with its head down a flight of stairs. The three guest cabins are located below decks in the pontoons, with the aft cabins having the flexibility of converting twin beds into one large bed. The atmosphere throughout this gorgeous cat is serene and peaceful. The crew of four is accommodated forward.

The yacht has numerous places to relax, including her covered aft deck, which enhances her charter appeal.

The yacht’s exterior styling was of paramount importance to the owners. They insisted on fine, sleek lines so that she would appear low and lean on the water.

Allures is the perfect vessel for a Caribbean yacht charter. With constant tradewinds in the Caribbean, her typical cruising speed averages a remarkable 14 to 17 knots. She is rigid, accelerates fast, and feels like she is flying above the water. It is easy to balance her helm, so she does not suffer from the hobby horse motion so typical of many catamarans.

Luxury sailing yacht Allures was conceived to be a high-performance vessel with the comfort of a motor yacht. In fact, when used under motor alone, she can cruise at approximately 12 knots. She is also very quiet. With her shallow draft she can get very close to shore.

In addition to her superb sailing capabilities, one of the yacht’s attributes that will appeal to charter guests is that there are numerous places to relax while on board: under cover on the aft main deck, on the flybridge in comfortable settees or aft on the expansive sun pads. For those who dare, the nets between the pontoons up forward can lull you to sleep or get you as close to the water as possible without being immersed.

The 164 foot motor yacht AMARULA SUN represents one of the major challenges in yacht design.  Those are first, creating a look that is distinctive, and second,  creating that look so as not to look outlandish. She is a trideck superyacht who hits just the right balance. Her deckhouse side windows are two elongated ovals. These diminish the visual mass of her full-beam superstructure.  Her prominent bow and raised bulwarks make her look much larger.



Guess what peeks out over the bulwark (top) of luxury yacht charter vessel AMARULA SUN?  It is a semicircle of glass panels!  These offer panoramic vistas from the full-beam, split-level master suite.


The raised forward portion has a sleeping area with a king bed, literally a throne from which the mega yacht charter client can survey his surroundings. Adjoining areas on the lower level include his and her heads, a dressing/seating area, and an office.


Waverunners are stowed on the foredeck of this Caribbean yacht charter vessel, concealed behind the bulwarks. For more ambitious waterborne fun, there’s a 41-foot tender, 1 21 foot custom RIB tender, and a personal submarine with davit in the transom garage.  The submarine is the ideal watertoy for exploring the shallow waters and blue grottoes during a Bahama yacht charter.



Aft is the skylounge, with panoramic vistas to either side (thanks to the large windows in the aforementioned oval recesses) and to the stern, through curved sliding-glass panels that open onto an alfresco dining area protected by the bridge-deck overhang. The circular dining table is a hi-lo affair with a twist; it also expands or contracts in diameter, thanks to a clever mechanism that stows a set of leaves under the tabletop in the retracted position.



This spectacular mega yacht was built by Trinity Yachts, one of the United States most honored builders of custom super yachts.  After spending the summer offering a Trinity yacht charter in the Bahamas, the vessel will cross the Atlantic Ocean and offer summer Mediterranean yacht charter holidays to Americans as well as European clients.



The luxury charter yacht features interior design by Patrick Knowles Designs.  With five luxurious staterooms she can accommodate 10-12 guests on board.



The main salon and dining room presents a light and airy atmosphere. Forward is the formal dining table with seating for ten passengers. Aft is a spacious living area with plenty of seating and a full entertainment system. The megayacht features hand-painted ceiling murals – adding to the overall the feeling of roominess.



The interior decor is traditional and features raised paneling in American Cherry, Maple burl and ubinga with an understated hand-polished finish. The ondeck exterior furniture is elegantly done in teak and woven materials with a deep Java chocolate finish.



The decks on board this yacht charter vessel are also vast and spacious with the sun deck offering huge sun pads, a swim up bar, and a Jacuzzi tub. There is also a grill, exercise equipment, and seating for 12 guests for meals. With a huge plasma TV on the sun deck, charter guests can enjoy a night of movies under the stars.



The upper aft deck provides formal dining space for ten people, a plasma TV and ample, casual seating.



Other features of this luxury charter yacht Zero Speed (at anchor) stabilizers, Xbox and PlayStation, and independent satellite TV in all guest rooms.

Based in Athens for the Greek yacht charter market,  45.77 meter Feadship yacht ANCALLIA was entirely rebuilt as a new yacht and reborn in 2014.  The three year project was performed to exceptionally high specifications, starting from her bare hull and all machinery, systems and interior were refit.  The effort was rewarded and recognized as motor yacht ANCALLIA Feadship won the Best Refit award at the 2015 World Superyacht Awards.

Mykonos yacht charter lovers will appreciate the finish and amenities onboard super yacht ANCALLIA.  Amazingly, this “New” yacht still exudes the elegance and Dutch exterior style that is, quintessentially, Feadship. Exceptional attention to detail both in her interior and on her exterior decks guarantees the comfort and satisfaction of every charter guest while onboard.

Largest Feadship Offered For Charter – Motor Yacht AIR

Like all Feadships, this yacht offers roomy deck areas for lounging.  Notable amenities include a warm sun deck featuring a Jacuzzi spa tub for lounging, and a new integrated swim platform for easy access in and out of the ocean.

Her stunning interior is credited to Colefax & Fowler of London, and she offers accommodations for 12 guests in 7 cabins.

Motor yacht Andiamo’s interior can be referred to as “a true Francois Zuretti,” as its flavor is “of leather and tobacco” and seems to be modeled after a gentleman’s club of a true yachtsman.

The lower deck features two cabins with double beds and two twin cabins with a Pullman bed.  The VIP bed is rounded and flanked by two bedside cabinets with the novelty of a retractable leaf. The bathrooms are typical of this designer who has furnished them with small units for built-in washbasins, designed with rounded curves of miraculous proportions and finished with tops in onyx, matching the floors. On the landing there’s a stair cupboard for suitcases that helps to maximuize storage space.

The lacquered wooden ceiling is cream and Alcantara coloured. The curtains in the twin cabins are pale gold. The wood, which is an element of continuity throughout the boat, is matched with light colours like off-white and honey onyx.

Her stairway (classic Benetti styling) is in the middle of the salon and the bar is on the port side. The low items of furniture beneath the large windows are used as containers for various sorts of things. Sofas, armchairs, gold curtains and sober mirror inserts complete the deeply relaxing decor. Simple and intimate, the dining area has a rounded carved wooden table seating 10, completed by wooden chairs upholstered in light-coloured leather.

Whether standing out in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, this motoryacht exudes pure class…

In early 2010, after successful sea trials on the North Sea, the classic 33.90 meter sloop sail yacht ANNAGINE left Holland for her maiden Mediterranean yacht charter season. Designed by Dykstra & Partners Naval Architects, sail yacht ANNAGINE was built by JOM in Holland. She is designed and built for comfortable high performance cruising and fully equipped to the latest standards for successful luxury sailing charter.

Sloop sail yacht ANNAGINE can accommodate 8 guests in 3 staterooms and offers a cozy salon – a dining/living area – with modern entertainment equipment. This lovely sloop features a traditional interior with light tones and mahogany furniture with white and beige details. With an overall theme of subtle Honduras mahogany and cream paneling with chestnut flooring, the yacht exudes elegance and style in a comfortable, informal atmosphere.

The interior layout has been optimized for sail boat charters as she features two guest cabins that can either be converted into double or twin bed cabins. Two additional Pullman berths provide sleeping space for small children. All cabins include en suite bathrooms.

In contrast to a bareboat catamaran charter without crew, Annagine is a lovely sailing catamaran with a professional, attentive crew who caters to guests’ every need.

With her open-plan layout, this modern “classic” is a real “home away from home.
