Newly Rebuilt Lady E Returns to Charter Market

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 03/26/2020 - 12:00
Newly Rebuilt Lady E Returns to Charter Market Classic Amels superyacht Lady E is close to completing a huge rebuild project, and will return to the waters this summer when she will be available to charter through Burgess.

The 2006-built superyacht has been undergoing a huge winter refit programme at the Pendennis shipyard in Falmouth, which has seen her length extended from 69m to 74.5m. Some incredible new social spaces have been installed under this project, not least being a brand new sea-level Beach Club.

The Beach Club comes complete with a full bar, lounge and shower, while its water-line location brings guests closer to the sea action. It provides the perfect area to hop-off water toys and tenders, of which Lady E has plenty, to enjoy a relaxing drink and lounge under the sun.

The extensive arsenal of water toys and tenders has been bolstered by the addition of the Wajer 55s, a powerful yet quiet 18m tender that is joystick operated. Elsewhere, a Super Air Nautique G23 provides another high-performance option to take to the water, while there is a plethora of jet skis, sea bobs and other exciting water toys to choose from.

Not all of the new features are quite so high-octane, with the sun deck fitted out with a new steam room, massage parlour and beauty room for quiet and indulgent down time. The sun deck also boasts a large jacuzzi as well as a fully equipped gym, all of which can be accessible from the yacht’s elevator.

Much of the excitement around Lady E’s launch in 2006 surrounded the exquisite interior design by Walter Franchini, and the immaculate styling remains intact. The entertainment offering on the bridge and main saloon has been upgraded to offer a home cinema experience perfect for family time, while the sky lounge will be the ideal spot for daytime fun. Lady E will accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 luxurious suites, comprising of a main deck VIP suite along with four elegant guest suites on the lower deck.

We are excited to see Lady E return to action in June, and with such an array of exhilarating features she makes for a stellar superyacht on the brokerage market.

Yacht Management: The Swisspath Way

Super Yachts Charters - Wed, 03/25/2020 - 16:30
Yacht Management: The Swisspath Way Swisspath Yachting is a firm with one dedicated focus; to simplify the many complexities and questions surrounding the world of yacht charter and management, in order to allow for the smoothest and most efficient customer journey. Now with an expanded portfolio of services, we took another look at how Swisspath Yachting aims to provide an all-inclusive solution for any yacht management queries.

As part of its new Expedition Planning and Concierge services, Swisspath Yachting now provide a dedicated travel and expedition planner to assist in itinerary development. This holistic approach includes bespoke research and itinerary planning, pre-arrangement of hotels, transfers and other activities, as well as thorough research into local regulations should any permits or licenses be required. The benefits such a service adds to the yachting experience are manifold, in light of the rise of explorer yachting as a phenomenon.

Boris de Bel, Managing Director of Swisspath Yachting, uses the example of one client who took advantage of the service, in looking to circumnavigate the highly regulated areas of the Galapagos, Antarctic Peninsula and other off-the-beaten-path destinations. ‘Many of these destinations have a unique set of regulations, with some archipelagos having rules imposed by local tribes which differ from island to island and thus require research, advance planning and local knowledge.’

And with all of the paperwork, planning, and a dedicated concierge service extending even to personal jet travel taken care for you, this new service truly aims to make the seemingly impossible undertaking easier than ever before.

Aside from logistics planning, Swisspath Yachting has also extended its breach into the fiscal realm. With advanced assistance in fiscal and VAT matters, Swisspath Yachting will advise on the optimal tax structure for ownership and yacht operation. The new service also covers the capacity for free circulation in the EU – the rules around which are intricate and specialist – as well as reviewing and implementing a VAT scheme for importation and use of the yacht in EU waters, where applicable.

Boris de Bel reported that the service was born out of dissatisfaction with those provided by other yacht management services, in an area where regulations differ from country to country and the slightest mistake can prove costly. Swisspath Yachting, ‘having both Yachting and Tax expertise under the same roof’ holds a distinctive edge in this regard over other yacht management companies, and have ‘control over the process from start to finish and can thus ensure that nothing slips through the cracks’.

The above extension of logistics planning and fiscal services by Swisspath Yachting cements its position as a global leader in the field of yacht management, taking the strain away from owners and charterers and leaving them free to enjoy the pleasures of yachting.
