Part 1: Following the Voyage of Vripack's GALE FORCE

Thu, 04/18/2019 - 11:00
Part 1: Following the Voyage of Vripack's GALE FORCE GAYLE FORCE has recently embarked on an incredible year-long voyage. At just 29m, the yacht has so far cruised through Antarctica, Patagonia and Chile and is now on its second leg cruising Robinson Crusoe Island before heading to Galapagos. We learn more from the Captain on its inspiring journey....

With inspiring comments and anecdotes from Captain Scott Whittaker, the story of GALE FORCE is one of adventure and intrigue, as well as epitomising Vripack’s design philosophy; to create safe, durable yachts with light, elegant and comfortable interiors that make you feel at home, at sea.

Heading to Antarctica is never a simple task. Even on board an expedition vessel the risks are plenty. But when cruising on an “unproven”  29m explorer – the smallest private Marshall Island flag boat to ever venture to the Southern Peninsula – you need to be sure of two things, a) that you have an open mind, and b) that the vessel is designed by Vripack.

Captain Scott Whittaker grew up sailing. With 30 years of marine industry experience under his belt there are few places on Earth where he hasn’t travelled. But when Wayne and Gayle Laufer, owners of 29m GAYLE FORCE (ex PATRIOT) requested to see the wilds of Antarctica, he knew it was “game on”.

First built in the Netherlands in 2003 by Bloemsma & Van Breemen, GAYLE FORCE forms part of Vripack’s legendary Doggersbank Offshore series. Known for its heavy duty use, low emissions, clean engine rooms and long-lasting equipment, the Doggersbank epitomises Vripack’s design philosophy; to create safe, durable yachts with light, elegant and comfortable interiors that make you feel at home, at sea.

For Captain Scott, however, the real adventure began long before the voyage itself, with a long 20 months spent in the shipyard “decomplicating” the numerous changes that had accrued over time.

Captain Scott shares; “One of the biggest things that Vripack helped us with was weight/balance. We ended up taking around 25,000 pounds off the bow of the boat, and replacing the unnecessarily large 23mm anchor chain with the original 16mm version,” he says. “We also converted the crew lounge into a third guest cabin, and importantly added zero speed stabilisers. I really feel that with an expedition boat, the only defence you have is to slow down. It’s not a long enough boat to stick your nose into it, but to slow to 3-4 knots, stay upright and keep running – GAYLE FORCE does that really well now.”

On 20 November, 2018, GAYLE FORCE left Panama City, Florida, and made the non-stop 3,800Nm journey straight to Valparaíso, Chile, “essentially unproven”. For Captain Scott, it demonstrated that the yacht “has a solid 5000Nm range, if not more like 6,500Nm, which is huge for a little boat”.

It went without a hitch, and they spent a few weeks cruising the vast waters around Patagonia where they experienced “relentless winds and high seas, and the boat took a phenomenal beating, as did the crew”. Captain Scott tolerated his fair share of adversity, too, having elected to bunk down on the bridge for the Antarctic leg in a bivy sack and -20 sleeping bag to accommodate the ice pilot and naturalist.

Follow the rest of GAYLE FORCE's story, to be continued in Part 2...

Thu, 04/18/2019 - 11:00
Part 2: Following the Voyage of Vripack's GALE FORCE In Part 2 we continue to follow the incredible journey of Vripack designed GAYLE FORCE, which has recently embarked on an incredible year-long voyage. At just 29m, the yacht has so far cruised through Antarctica, Patagonia and Chile and is now on its second leg cruising Robinson Crusoe Island before heading to Galapagos...

With inspiring comments and anecdotes from Captain Scott Whittaker, the story of GALE FORCE continues to bbe one of adventure and intrigue, as well as epitomising Vripack’s design philosophy; to create safe, durable yachts with light, elegant and comfortable interiors that make you feel at home, at sea.

The Laufers typify the ambitious and visionary clients that Vripack’s creative, holistic and collaborative approach attracts, and so despite being in their 70s, the rough conditions only added to excitement. “Wayne is an old adventurer, and it wasn’t that cold,” says Captain Scott, the Captain of the invincible GAYLE FORCE.

Captain Scott continues; “The coldest we saw was around -26, although with wind it was probably chillier. I think we saw colder in Patagonia!”  

Wildlife abounded, with humpback, fin and blue whales aplenty. Penguins were in their thousands, and every type of seal was sighted. The highlight for Captain Scott, however, were the two nights spent drifting with the ice in the Gerlache Straits. “We had amazing evenings there, it was truly beautiful. It felt like something out of Space Odyssey, semi-light out, just watching the ice, silently drifting together.”

The next phase of the year-long voyage will see GAYLE FORCE heading to Robinson Crusoe Island, before moving on to Galapagos, and Cocos Islands. For both the Laufers and Captain Scott, a key element of the enjoyment is “to tie the history of the boat back” and to see GAYLE FORCE do “what she was built for”.

“In 2003 GAYLE FORCE was the most technologically advanced vessel in under 30m, so it’s interesting to see what she’s doing now,” he enthuses. Since 1961, Vripack has been involved in more than 7,400 projects, from the smallest of boats to the largest of vessels, delivering interior design and external styling that is underpinned by pioneering naval architecture.

“Vripack were instrumental in bridging PATRIOT’s history to present day GAYLE FORCE,” says Captain Scott. “The ability to access history of build and actually work with some of the Vripack team that were on the build, throughout our yard time and chosen modifications, was priceless."

The Must-See Yachts of MYBA 2019 (Part 1) In just a few short weeks, Barcelona will become home to an influx of the most stunning vessels on the charter market. Anyone who is anyone will be cruising into the sunny West Med between the 30th April and 3rd May for MYBA, a show whose success has been growing for 30 years. We take a look at the most impressive yachts in attendance...

Nero
Burgess bring this incredible vessel to the shores of Barcelona as the largest yacht in show - at 90.10m, Nero is a Top 100 giant. This 2008 Corsair Yachts build cuts a formidable silhouette, with sleek lines and a classic exterior that harkens back to the golden age of private yachting. Designed and built to meticulous standards, Nero offers charter guests a huge promenade deck, numerous seating and dining areas and an array of luxurious amenities, including interior and exterior cinema projector screens and incredible water toys. Following her extensive refit in 2016, Nero has never been more authentically charming or technologically innovative, representing an elegant chater platform for the most discerning clients.

Wheels
Represented by Fraser Yachts, 76m Wheels joins the stunning MYBA fleet. This seven deck colossus was designed in 2008 by Sam Sorgiovanni, whose legendary status in Top 100 yacht building is demonstrated by his work on 110m Jubilee (interior) and 88m Nirvana (exterior). This 2008 Oceanco vessel boasts outstanding features including a master stateroom with panoramic views, a cinema room and a brand new Canadian SPA hot tub on the sundeck aft. Having undertaken a recent refit overseen by an Owner who has been meticulous in her maintenance, Wheels is in pristine condition to take on charter guests. Her stylish interior, advanced technological systems and dive/watersports facilities make her one of the most desirable charters on the water.

Axioma
Also gracing the sunny shores of Barcelona is Axioma, a 72m represented in the show by Yachting Partners International. The Dunya Yachts build features stunning beach house-style interiors by the legendary late designer Alberto Pinto, including a double-height salon atrium with mezzanine. Other standout features include an Owner’s deck with media lounge and master sized VIP, a gym with massage and steam room and a 3D cinema for eight.

The Must-See Yachts of MYBA 2019 (Part 2) In just a few short weeks, Barcelona will become home to an influx of the most stunning vessels on the charter market. Anyone who is anyone will be cruising into the sunny West Med between the 30th April and 3rd May for MYBA, a show whose success has been growing for 30 years. We take a look at the most impressive yachts in attendance...

Continued from Part 1

Maltese Falcon
As a 'one off' appearance in the charter market, Maltese Falcon makes her way to MYBA represented by IYC. The iconic 88m sailing yacht revolutionised the industry in 2006 with her ‘Falcon Rig’ system, and notoriously balances exceptional performance with uncompromised luxury. Today, this mighty vessel provides a once in a lifetime charter service, offering guests stunning indoor and outdoor spaces for leisure and entertainment. Her interior features accommodation for 12, a spacious saloon and a formal dining area comfortably sits 12. On deck, charterers enjoy al fresco dining, an upper deck jacuzzi and an array of tenders and toys. Maltese Falcon represents an unmissable chance to cruise the beautiful Balearics onboard a yachting legend.

Solo
Northrop and Johnson will be presenting Solo at MYBA, a 71m Tankoa build that rocked the industry last year. Designed in a collaboration between Francesco Paszkowski Design and Margherita Casprini, Solo’s interior nails contemporary-classic, with six striking staterooms, an ambient main salon and a vast master suite offering 180-degree views from bed. The yacht’s living spaces seamlessly flow from interior to captivating outdoor areas that allow charter guests to enjoy the alfresco lifestyle - on the skylounge aft, guests can take a dip in the swimming pool or dance the night away on the private dance floor (which converts to a touch-and-go helipad). From her refined interior to dedicated crew, a Solo charter is not one to be forgotten in a hurry.

RoMa
Another must-see at MYBA is 62m RoMa. Camper and Nicholsons are opening this 62m Espen Oeino design to the public, who are welcomed to view the array of impressive onboard facilities that are packed from bow to stern. A colour palette of crisp whites, subtle golds and deep reds unite luxurious living spaces, including an opulent main saloon with chic Onyx bar and dining table, and a glass elevator to all levels from the entrance lobby. RoMa is also unrivalled in terms of entertainment, bringing to the table water toys, an on-board cinema, a private beach-club, a 24-person BWA tender and a swimming pool with current enabling jets. Whether you envision reclining on a sunlounger or riding the waves on a jetski, RoMa is the ultimate charter experience.

Word from the Captain: Cloudbreak Exploring the Med

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 10:00
Word from the Captain: Cloudbreak Exploring the Med With two years as Captain of one of Abeking & Rasmussen most iconic superyachts, Jim Aladin has travelled the globe, leading some of the world’s most far-flung charters. With 75m Cloudbreak heading to the better-known waters of Med this summer, we spoke with the Captain to learn all about the lifestyle on offer to those lucky enough to spend a week on board.

Available to charter exclusively with SuperYachtsMonaco, we caught up with Cpt. Jim as the yacht makes its way to Norway having just undergone a 3-metre extension to increase space on the stern platform. Asking what he hoped was on the summer agenda for Cloudbreak, the Captain told us this was “a very difficult question to answer as there are many lovely spots to choose from.” High on his list though were the culture, history and beach-binding destinations of The Ionian Islands, Croatia and Venice, favored for their quiet anchorages and delicate afternoon breeze; “ideal for windsurfing before the sun goes down.”

In a brief itinerary for chartering in the region, the islands of Kefalonia, Lefkada and Corfu were just the beginning. Followed by five days visiting some of the 1000+ islands in Croatia “where you will find hidden restaurants, beaches and party islands, if that is your thing and you want to dance!” the week would end docked overnight in Venice. Here, “some Italian food, visiting the Murano glass factory and all the must-see historical buildings and bridges, before taking a classic wooden water taxi to the airport” would provide the perfect end to what sounds like an extremely action-packed week.

“Greece, Croatia and Italy are three countries with very different cultures and scenery, ticking all the boxes for a great vacation” Jim explained. However, these destinations aren’t Cloudbreak’s usual cruising grounds. Noting some of his most memorable moments on board, Jim shared, “Alaska comes to mind, along with seeing 50-100 new-born baby turtles coming out of the sand and scurry down to the water in Madagascar.”

But whether she’s deep in the depths of Antarctica or anchored off the Cote D'Azur, Cloudbreak is still a luxury explorer vessel. She offers the same comfort, luxury and high-quality food expected but alongside so much more. Jim elaborated, “We have experienced crew with great knowledge. This ensures an unforgettable experience in any location. We create the perfect balance of onboard relaxation with an array of ocean activities with our toys, beautiful beach picnics and for the avid adventurer including cycling in various environments and more such as hiking up Stromboli with Cloudbreak’s experienced crew. We also love to celebrate occasions onboard, transforming our heli deck into a disco with our resident DJ mixing music on our immense sound system.”

The Captain even explained how the crew are trained in ‘bear safety’! A necessity when picnicking on an Alaskan beach but perhaps something you won’t require assistance with when choosing to charter in Europe. Nevertheless, Cloudbreak’s crew seem to be a key ingredient in her charter appeal, Jim adds, “The CB team can do much more than just serving and driving a tender!”

So whether it’s sending the children off for an afternoon on the yacht’s inflatable water wonderland, or trekking Italy’s highest peaks with experienced crew in tow; exploring the Med, Cloudbreak-style is certainly a stand-out charter experience... An experience that Captain Jim Aladin and SuperYachtsMonaco will ensure is truly unforgettable.

Tue, 03/26/2019 - 12:00
Charter Focus: Tasting Italy with D.P. Monitor (Part 1) Spring has finally sprung, which can mean only one thing for the yachters of the world: the Mediterranean west coast. And nothing says holiday in the Med quite like its mouthwatering regional dishes. If your love of the ocean is rivalled only by your love of food, why not consider combining your twin passions and chartering D.P. Monitor for a gourmet itinerary with Flying Charter...

Day One: Naples
Made with San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and cooked in a stone oven, Neapolitan pizza is surely the best in the world. And if you want to get closer to the action of this proud tradition, why not book a private lesson in a real pizzeria? Olio & Pomodoro offer 2 hour courses in English that end with the all important tasting accompanied by Italian beer. For a post-pizza tipple, head to L’Antiquario speakeasy or the Tiki vibes of Platanos

Day Two: Sorrento
Taking your charter onto dry land for a day and enjoying the sumptuous shores of Sorrento is a must. And after a day of swimming and sunning, what better way to spend the balmy evening than wandering the streets of Sorrento Old Town, ducking in and out of tavernas for limoncello tasting? For dinner, two-Michelin star Torre Del Saracino is not to be missed - make sure to leave room for the indulgent selection of chocolate that you will be offered afterwards.

Day Three: Nerano
It would be wrong to do a gourmet tour of Italy and not feast on pasta. Cruise along the natural reserve of Punta Campanella, before taking a seaside table at world famous pasta aficionado Maria Grazia in Nerano - the ‘penne alla Maria Grazia’ is nationally acclaimed. Before moving on you should also visit I Quattro Passi - a two Michelin-starred restaurant which valorises local ingredients.

This restaurant has one of the most beautiful terraces in the country and serves fish so fresh you can taste the sea salt.

Day Five: Cetara
This idyllic coastal village has a niche speciality: anchovies. Cetara leads the region in the deliciously salty delicacy. Almost all the restaurants here offer anchovies in various manifestations, but the best places to sample are Refettorio in Conca Dei Marini, an eatery located in a renovated monastery, and Rossellinis in Ravello, which is tucked in the rock face overlooking Amalfi.

Day Six: Capri
A day spent in Capri should entail swimming beneath the Faraglioni and soaking up the rays on a rugged beach at La Fontelina, with a pitcher of ‘vino con le percoche’ (white wine and local peaches) close at hand. For dinner, head to the town of Anacapri, which resides just on the other side of the Capri Mountain. Here, two-Michelin-starred restaurant L’Olivo takes the region’s gastronomic staples and reimagines them into exquisite works of art.

Day Seven: Ischia
Ischia is a volcanic island off the coast of Naples, whose sunbaked terrain makes for a large number of vineyards. The most famous regional wine is Biancolella - enjoy hearty amounts of this fruity, almond-tinged white at a tasting in a local cellar, before dining in the ‘enchanted garden’ of two Michelin-starred restaurant Danì Maison.

Charter Focus: The Glam Capital of Dubai

Tue, 03/05/2019 - 10:00
Charter Focus: The Glam Capital of Dubai For the last ten years the Persian Gulf States have been pouring their oil riches into tourism, and are fast replacing the Western Mediterranean as the glam capital of the world. As the tourist industry mushrooms, Middle Eastern yachting has followed suit, now representing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for chartering...

Characterised by a striking high-rise skyline, bustling commercial infrastructure and a host of millionaire and celebrity residents, Dubai is the fastest-growing Emirate in the region.

The country is designed for cruising. The archipelago city is easily navigable by yacht, and 49 miles of natural coastline, as well as three offshore island groups (‘The World’, ‘Jebel Ali Palm’ and ‘Palm Jumeirah’), means a sumptuous beach frontage of 930 miles. The water is also home to the fishing, pearling and general trades that have long sustained the people of the Gulf States.

Aside from being an exceedingly yacht-friendly area, Dubai yields a wealth of dry-land amenities. Once you have docked your charter yacht, resorts such as Atlantis the Palm, Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai and the Waldorf Astoria guarantee a world-class stay. After settling in, the exploration of this dynamic playground can begin. Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, is a must see, whilst the Dubai Mall is home to an indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall and the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

The Dubai Fountains are a choreographed dancing water show with jet streams stretching 150m into the air, whilst Adventure Waterpark makes for an adrenaline filled and action packed day out. Finally, for a break from the high-octane glitz and glamour of the city, visitors can experience the real heart of Dubai by stepping into the old town’s winding waterways and souks at Dubai Creek.

Chartering a yacht to Dubai will doubtlessly entail some serious relaxation, and meandering through the urban beach district is one of the most leisurely ways to pass a day. The Beach opposite JBR has shopping, dining and an open-air cinema, as well as DJs pumping out tunes on weekends. Kite Beach, meanwhile, satiates those with a thirst for adventure with facilities for a multitude of watersports.

Dubai is a marina biosphere, an aquatic gated community, a theme park the size of a small country... We at Superyachts.com can think of few more fascinating places to charter a yacht.

Charter Focus: Exploring the West Med With Andiamo

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 14:00

Currently cruising the balmy waters of the western Mediterranean with Hill Robinson, Andiamo represents the perfect escape from the February blues.

Baglietto build Andiamo, which was delivered to new owners during the summer of 2018, represents a contemporary twist on the classic Italian profile.

Andiamo’s original calling as a family cruising yacht is apparent - ample lounging areas are matched by a tender garage bursting with exciting water toys.

Her indoor spaces are just as rewarding, with fantastic luxury extras including a cinema - the perfect way to wind down a long day of sunbathing, swimming and socialising. The Baglietto build is notable for her onboard comfort; warm, chic and contemporary are achieved by precious wood including lacquered ebony and oak, luxuriously finished in onyx and leather. She can accommodate 12 guests across a VIP cabin, two double cabins and 2 twin cabins.

The craftsmanship of this Andiamo exemplifies its Italian heritage - her Francesco Paszkowski-curated exterior and interior is a beacon of the quality vessels for which the region is celebrated. We cannot think of a better way to explore the sumptuous climes of the Mediterranean.

The Perfect Valentine's Charter Destinations

Tue, 02/12/2019 - 11:00
The Perfect Valentine's Charter Destinations Love is in the air this week, and if you’re stuck for an original idea to celebrate Valentine's Day, why not consider a romantic yacht charter? Here are our top picks for an intimate, impulsive getaway...

1. Cote d’Azur
Sipping champagne on the French Riviera is a failsafe option for old-school romance. Here, glorious natural beauty is counterposed by chic seaside enclaves buzzing with glamorous resorts and swanky restaurants. And why choose between the exclusive glitz of Cannes, the haute couture of Saint Tropez and the sumptuous eateries of Antibes when a West Med yacht charter can take you to all of them?

2. Italian West Coast
A charter beginning at the Italian Riviera and stretching down to the Aeolian Islands will yield unbridled beauty. The Tuscan Archipelago is a rustic paradise crystallised in time, whilst Corsica’s rugged terrain blazes with year-round sunshine. Sardinia, meanwhile, is an arcadia of rolling hills dotted with lemon groves. The soaring cliffs, crumbling villages and cerulean sea of the Italian coast is the perfect joint experience.

4. The Caribbean and Bahamas
A Caribbean or Bahamas charter is laid-back affair to be enjoyed at a different pace of life. Days are for languishing away, whilst evenings buzz with the infectious rhythm of the steel drum. Whether you’re cruising the crystal waters of the Exumas or enjoying the powder-sand beaches of the Leeward Islands, the region represents the perfect opportunity to put life on hold.

4. French Polynesia
The South Pacific is a less-chartered destination, but one which is gaining ground. White beaches, technicolour reefs and water of the most intense aquamarine make up the distinctive allure of French Polynesia. However, whilst the famous overwater bungalows are the luxury honeymooner’s dream, the hibiscus-flowers-and-grass-skirt vibe of Tahiti, Bora Bora and Tonga makes for an authentic island-living experience. 

5. Antarctica
If you are one of those couples who consider Valentine’s a hallmark holiday, why not book a yacht charter that speaks to your unconventional nature? Antarctica is a near-deserted continent of hulking icebergs, glittering shores and striking natural beauty. On the itinerary is Deception Island, a collapsed volcano that forms a natural harbour, Paradise Harbour, a spectacular glacier befitting of its name, and Lemaire Channel, a narrow waterway snaking between Antarctic cliffs. One thing is for certain: it will be memorable.

Charter Focus: Burgess Presents Va Bene

Tue, 02/12/2019 - 09:00
Charter Focus: Burgess Presents Va Bene If you are thinking of chartering this year, Burgess might just have the yacht for you. At 47.8m the Kees Cornelissen built vessel, Va Bene is a perfect specimen for chartering - large enough for the luxe experience but small enough for intimacy.

Up to 12 friends and family can join you onboard Va Bene in what is sure to be an experience that you will treasure for years to come. Cosy communal areas, an expansive sun deck and an attentive, friendly and expert crew set the wheels in motion for the ultimate charter adventure.

Listed with Burgess, the yacht is notably family friendly, with a large selection of water toys, RYA qualified instructors and themed entertainment evenings ensuring that there is never a dull moment onboard. However, she also caters to the grown-ups, with versatile guest areas transforming into sophisticated settings for eating, socialising and entertaining.

With an outward appearance designed by The A Group and interiors masterminded by H2 Yacht Design, Va Bene has a striking silhouette. Built in 1994, her recently re-fitted spaces feature a timeless design of pale, limed wood to optimize the abundance of natural light which pours in, resulting in a light, airy and non-oppressive interior. With a separate dining room and large al fresco dining area on the aft deck, Va Bene prioritises both casual and formal communal settings.

Where the yacht really has the edge is in the wealth of entertainment facilities and extra features. The sun deck is able to transform into a dancefloor with a state of the art sound system, and also boasts a six-person jacuzzi. The aft section, meanwhile, entails a barbeque and vast sun pads that can be cleared to make space for gym equipment. Va Bene’s versatility also makes her a great yacht for charter - the full beam master cabin has a private study which converts to a children’s cabin with a pullman berth.

Va Bene will be cruising to the Mediterranean this summer, and Burgess are open to enquiries for winter charters.

The Must-Sees of Miami Yacht Show

Thu, 02/07/2019 - 13:00
The Must-Sees of Miami Yacht Show From February 14-18, the biggest and best in boating flock to Florida for the annual Miami Yacht Show. This year, household names in build and brokerage will be docked along the glittering coastline in a turnout of epic proportions. If you are lucky enough to be living it up on the east coast, make sure to catch these beautiful boats…

Kismet
At 95.2m, Kismet is one of the biggest boats in show, as well as one of the most impressive. This custom Lurssen is the product of the collaboration of a host of award winners, including interior designer Reymond Langton and exterior stylist Espen Oeino. A specimen of uncompromised perfection, Kismet is known for her graceful silhouette and ‘Champagne and Caviar’ themed spaces. She is presented at the show by Moran Yacht and Ship.

Excellence V
Available for sale and charter with Burgess, 60.9m Excellence V will also be at the upper end of the size spectrum at Miami. However, Reymond Langton curated spaces work with sweeping exterior lines to create the interior volume of an even larger boat. This Abeking and Rasmussen build has everything that you would expect of the regarded German shipbuilder: class, quality and capability.

Minderella
Merle Wood & Associates bring this graceful 57.3m build to the shores of Miami - a timeless yacht which was originally built in 1986 and benefitted from a 2016 reift. The chic De Voogt naval architecture of this luxury Feadship won her a finalist position in the 2017 World Superyacht Awards, and is bound to stir interest at the show.

Lazy Z
Exhibiting with Burgess, this 51.4m build is a yacht of considerable capability. Since leaving the Oceanco shipyard in 2013, Lazy Z has gone through multi-million dollar refits in 2015 and 2017 which brought the yacht up to scratch mechanically and in terms of her design. The Baron Gurney/The A Group exteriors and Richard Hein interiors are well worth a look.

Kinta
Available for sale and charter with IYC, Kinta was built in the Prokestan/Turquoise shipyard in 2008. This 54.6m yacht is a shining example of the pedigree coming out of Turkey in recent times, and a standard bearer for the emerging market. A stunning 2011 refit by Jean Guy Vergas made Kinta into a completely new yacht - she now epitomises contemporary and sophisticated interior style, and is certainly one of the major players at Miami Yacht Show.

Charter Focus: Around the World on Lili

Wed, 02/06/2019 - 12:00
Charter Focus: Around the World on Lili Imperial Yachts introduce Lili: The Amels 55m embarking on a round the world charter tour. We speak to CA Julia Buklina, who reveals how this ambitious superyacht is redefining charter standards and what vessels like Lili mean for a shifting industry.

Lili began her circumnavigation in mid-December of last year in the Maldives, and will be cruising the Indian Ocean and the Seychelles until April. She then plans on heading to Thailand, before making her way to the Mediterranean for the summer of 2019. Finally, a year after her embarkation, she will cruise to the Caribbean - the best place to be during the bleak winter months.

Having ticked off many of the time-honoured cruising idylls in 2019, 2020 will be a year of adventure, with Lili setting out for some of the world’s less-chartered recesses. “Costa Rica or Ecuador already pinned on the map,” Julia tells us, “She will then cruise north during spring 2020 and explore Alaska through the summer, before heading south and visit the Pacific in August 2020.”

With trips planned in French Polynesia and Fiji, the preliminary plan for winter 2020/2021 is to scale the Oceanic continent until hitting New Zealand waters. Llittle explanation is needed as to why a Lili charter is ideal for those seeking new sensations at sea - not content with exploring just one far flung region, she is heading to all of them.

So why the need for cruises like Lili? According to Julia, the charterers of today have more exotic ambitions than their predecessors. “More and more clients are looking for unconventional and unusual places for their holidays. We’re seeing an influx in enquiries for wild and remote destinations,” she says.

Lili was the perfect boat for the job. She is, first and foremost, eminently capable of completing the task at hand. Julia elaborates on the aptitude of the Amels 180 model for the ambitious tour: “She was customized following the wishes of our client, and the result exceeds expectation.”

“Her layout is very unusual for an Amels 180,” Julia continues, “Lili has 6 cabins with two masters - one on main deck forward with private folding-down balcony, one on the upper deck aft with a private aft deck terrace, and four guests rooms.” An abundance of outdoor space means room for a 4m counter-jet swimming pool, whilst cosy indoor spaces entails a gym and cinema.

Lili also boasts a friendly crew, including a host of multi-skills specialists including a talented chef and an expert spa professional. Full diving equipment and seasoned dive instructor are also at the disposal of guests, who are able to explore the diverse depths of the unique waters that Lili will be cruising.

“With all these elements combined, Lili represented the perfect opportunity to push the boundaries and satisfy the enquiries of the most demanding charter guests,” Julia concludes. The 55m is bound for a stunning couple of years and we can’t wait for updates on her progress, as well as the progress of an industry teeming with a new demographic of charterers pushing the boundaries of traditional cruising.

Lili is available for charter.

48 Hours in the Dreamworld of Dubai

Tue, 01/29/2019 - 17:45
48 Hours in the Dreamworld of Dubai As you cruise into Dubai Marina, skyscrapers towering overhead, you immediately feel the singularity of the place. Dubai is a self-contained world with endless things to see and do. However, if your cruise or charter only allows for two days, then look no further for best way to pass a dazzling 48 hours.

It is hard to believe that until recently the site of modern day Dubai consisted of arid desert. In the 1960s, a newly oil-based economy sparked a successful attempt to wrench a lagging region into the modern world, and culminated in a West-modelled metropolis being constructed as if out of thin air. Today, Dubai is a wonderland of soaring buildings, labyrinthine malls and ultramodern architecture; a veritable SimCity with a population of 7.8 million expatriates.

Once you have anchored your superyacht in the state of the art marina, it is time to check into one of Dubai’s ultraluxe resorts or hotels. Many of these are concentrated on Palm Jumeirah, the tree-shaped artificial archipelago whose birdseye aspect has made Dubai famous. At the apex of this landmark is a staggering staple of the Dubai skyline: Atlantis the Palm. Mythological architecture meets kitsch, under-the-sea decor in this palatial resort, and it’s perfect for a one night stay.

Your first day anchored in Dubai should be passed enjoying all that Palm Jumeirah has to offer. The island boasts a waterpark, two pools and a mile of your archetypal white sand beach, not to mention a palm-fringed lagoon where you can swim with dolphins. The ultimate adrenaline trip - skydiving above the unique landmass - is at your fingertips, and the archipelago is overflowing with high-end dining spots such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge. Cruising around Palm Jumeirah by yacht is also an option - the islands are yacht-friendly, with the Dubai International Boat Show running from 25th February-1st March.

On your second day, you should visit Burj Khalifa. At 830m, this is the tallest building in existence, and an observation deck on the 124th floor provides breathtaking aerial views. At the base lies Dubai Fountain - in the supersized spirit of the city, this jet, light and music choreographed water feature is the largest in the world. Another UAE institution is the Dubai Mall, a retail utopia that sprawls across 502,000 square metres and famously features an Olympic-size ice skating rink. It is a browsing and buying bonanza of such magnitude that it hosts its own ‘shopping festival’ in January and February.

Today’s Dubai might be a destination best known for putting ski slopes inside shopping malls, but behind the glitz and glamour there is an ancient realm steeped in culture. Traditional gold, spice and textile souks are located around Dubai Creek, and visitors can encounter the region’s past as a sleepy fishing village in the Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. It is well worth taking an afternoon to explore Dubai’s rich history.

There is something inherently fascinating about a desert outpost-turned-urban Shangri-la. Dubai represents a fantasy realised, and appreciators of luxury should not miss the chance to charter this outlandish metropolis, even if it is only for 48 hours!

New World Experience Part 1: Mark Robba on Dunia Baru

Wed, 01/23/2019 - 10:00
New World Experience Part 1: Mark Robba on Dunia Baru “Dunia Baru was never built for charter.” began the superyacht’s owner and businessman Mark Robba. “I built her as a platform for my family to explore the 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago and when we decided to offer her for charter the feedback was really amazing.”

Not built on a budget, nor with a time schedule, Mr Robba had the patience to create an Indonesian phinisi masterpiece; built with the elegance and drama required to reflect her surroundings. Mark explains, “Dunia Baru is a truly Indonesian yacht, down to her very soul. She was crafted by hand by the renowned Konjo Boat Builder, who have been building the finest phinisis for generations. Asmat wood carvers made incredible wall panels on board, while artisans from Bali did paintings and extraordinary artwork was collected for the yacht from across the archipelago.”

Now available for charter, Dunia Baru is a rare superyacht that has been purposely crafted to fit with one destination. “South East Asia has so much to offer visiting superyachts,” Mark shares, explaining the reasoning behind a destination-built vessel... “We've explored the waters around Malaysia, Thailand, Palau and the Mergui Archipelago, but honestly, we could spend the next 20 years in Indonesia and still find new things.”

What’s slightly, less-rare, however, is the conversation on South East Asia as a growing yachting destination. Seeing the traffic first hand, Mark describes, “It is a booming yachting destination as well and an increasing number of foreign flagged superyachts are coming here. There is so much to explore.”  But, as the experienced owner explains, only Indonesian flagged boats are allowed to charter in these remote waters. Dunia Baru of course, makes this list.

So with a vessel more than fit for purpose we asked the question, why Indonesia? “It is astonishingly beautiful here. And, unlike the beautiful places in the Med or Caribbean, it is still an untouched paradise. You can find yourself in remote bays or anchored off of deserted beaches without another vessel in sight. You could pass a whole charter without seeing another soul a part from the people on your yacht,” surely what every superyacht owner or charterer wants?

Aside from the off-radar ability of the country’s 1,700 islands and islets, Robba mentions a handful of other major draws which include the natural diversity of the renowned Coral Triangle, housing some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, as well as birdwatching and animal-spotting… not to forget the Balinese Beach Clubs.

So with a one of a kind built vessel in an other-wordly location, Mark continues this conversation in Part 2, explaining the unusual charter experience on board…
