M/Y Just Enough: Plenty for an Unforgettable Charter

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 08/15/2019 - 14:00
M/Y Just Enough: Plenty for an Unforgettable Charter Unassuming yet powerful, M/Y Just Enough is something of a misnomer - she is plenty for an unforgettable luxury charter. The 2012-built 42.67m yacht is perfect for an exclusive break with a select few of your family and friends.

Just Enough impresses at every turn. Beautiful Ares Marine exteriors are in immaculate condition thanks to a 2019 refit, as are interiors that yield timeless styling and beautiful furnishings to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and luxurious in equal measure.

Her layout sleeps 11 guests across 5 rooms, of which the master suite is the jewel in the crown, offering a king size bed, desk/vanity area and marble accented ensuite with corner shaped jacuzzi. The rest of the accommodation comprises 2 double cabins, 2 double/twin cabins and 2 pullman beds.

A full beam salon features a comfortable lounge and formal dining, with a day head also accessible from this level. Meanwhile, a separate area for entertaining and relaxing is located on the bridge deck - here guests find a large sofa, a full bar and a game table. Moving aft to the exterior, there is an alternate al fresco dining area.

Just Enough’s size also makes her the perfect yacht for charters who want plenty of access to the sea. The sun deck is a great escape by day or night - here, a large jacuzzi, marble-topped bar and several chaise longue set the mood.

The 42.67m is also a yacht of impressive performance. Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure, she reaches a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 18 knots with a range of 3,500nm.

With the summer season drawing to a close, now is the perfect time to be dreaming of a sumptuous winter charter. Just Enough, available with Bluewater, strikes the perfect balance between comfort and luxury as she cruises the idyllic grounds of the St. Barths, St. Martin and the BVI.

76.6m YERSIN Explorer Enters Charter Market

Super Yachts Charters - Wed, 08/07/2019 - 16:00
76.6m YERSIN Explorer Enters Charter Market A new giant has taken to the charter market as SuperYachtsMonaco announces its appointment as worldwide charter Central Agent for 76.6m Yersin. Borrowing her name from the legendary 19th century explorer and physician, Yersin certainly does this justice as an innovative, daring yet luxurious superyacht.

Delivered in 2015 by French shipyard Piriou with exterior design by Pierre Jacques Kubis, Yersin is built as a powerful and rugged explorer yacht. She is capable of reaching the most remote spots on the globe, packed with an impressive arsenal of discovery equipment all while simultaneously offering a sublimely luxurious experience for her guests. She now joins the rapidly growing SuperYachtsMonaco charter fleet that includes Mondomarine’s 60m Sarastar and Oceanco’s 86m Sailing Yacht Aquijo.

Commenting on the incorporation of Yersin, SuperYachtsMonaco Director Alex Banning said “we are delighted to have such a unique yacht in our fleet. Being new to the charter market, we would tell all charter clients that if you have the pleasure of chartering Yersin then expect a well-balanced experience of play, comfort, style and exploring, no matter where you choose to go.”

For the ultimate adrenaline-filled adventure, Yersin comes equipped with two 7.5m Zodiac Hurricanes and a quad fitted with caterpillar tracks to take to all terrain. Whether on land or sea, Yersin caters for action with amenities including jet skis, bicycles and even an on-board professional diving facility. The 76.6 metre explorer is built for long-distance missions, and her main deck accommodates space for specialist equipment including a submarine and seaplane.

For those among her 12 guests who would prefer a more peaceful and indulgent escape, Yersin is designed to have something for everyone, giving her great liveability. Around the Giga yacht, you will find everything from a Hammam spa, hairdresser and a 12 seater private cinema. 24 crew members are on hand to attend to every need of the guests, while each of the 8 guest cabins comes with a holistic entertainment system and en suite facilities. The open and modern layout of Yersin allows her plenty of social spaces, and for evening entertainment guests can move from the two formal dining rooms into the two on-board cocktail bars.

 “The beauty of Yersin,” Mr Banning told Superyachts.com, “is her versatility of superyacht comfort with commercial ship durability. She can provide superyacht, luxury or no-frills simplicity, with the most adventurous, remote and mind-blowing itineraries to explore that’s unique to the charter market.”

 Importantly for a market that is increasingly eco-conscious, Yersin is able to provide all of these things in an environmentally-friendly manner. “Above all she can travel from destination to destination with minimal impact on the environment,” says Banning, and this was recognised when Yersin was awarded with CLEANSHIP class notations, owing to the ultramodern green technology that has been installed throughout the vessel.

In Yersin, SuperYachtsMonaco have gained an exciting and distinctive addition to their charter fleet that is built to “travel, explore and educate”.

A Captain's Perspective: Cruising the Fjords with Steel

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 11:00
A Captain's Perspective: Cruising the Fjords with Steel In the latest trend to sweep the industry, yachts are increasingly looking to cruise to areas where no yacht has cruised before. One such vessel satiating the appetites of adventurous guests is Steel, the 54.8m Pendennis for charter with Hill Robinson. We speak to someone at the very heart of the action, Captain Justin of Steel.

“MY Steel has A1 Ice class and a massive fuel range of 6000nm, so long expeditions of the amazing fjords and high latitude scenery is easily achieved,” begins Captain Justin. Steel’s impressive expedition capabilities means that she is perfectly at home chartering unconventional destinations such as Scandinavia. These areas are some of the most uniquely beautiful in the world, offering experiences quite distinct from the established idylls of the Caribbean and Mediterranean. “The scenery is amazing and the midnight sun is incomparable,” says Captain Justin, “On our last cruise we saw whales and dolphins. Norway is becoming more popular, but as soon as you leave the port you are on your own with the fjord.”

These alluring destinations are gaining the recognition that they are due, as more and more superyacht owners and charters catch wind of this stunning corner of the globe. Increasingly, therefore, shipyards are met with requests to create yachts with the technical capabilities to venture into the unknown. “I do think that this is the direction that the industry is moving in, and that people increasingly looking to travel to less conventional destinations,” says Justin, “But it will always be more of a niche market as the water is not quite as warm. However, the scenery more than makes up for it.”

Steel also makes no compromises when it comes to balancing her explorer status with the luxury onboard experience. “She does this incredibly well,” says Justin, “We have a dedicated interior team of 5 and sufficient deck crew for all guest activities, and each anchor chain is over 250m long so the ship will always be safely anchored wherever she may be.” The 58.4m also refuses to cut corners when it comes to leisure and entertainment facilities, offering a full garage of water sports equipment, a heated 6m swimming pool and a large 10m rib for touring the spectacular fjords.

This 2009-launched ice-class yacht is all the proof you need that hardy explorers can coexist as custom-tailored luxury designs. Place this in amongst the sublime fjords of Scandinavia, and you have an unforgettable charter experience.

Catching Up With Lili: 55m Amels Charter Giant

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 07/04/2019 - 10:00
Catching Up With Lili: 55m Amels Charter Giant A few months ago we spoke with Imperial Yachts to learn a little more about Lili, the gorgeous Amels 180 who features striking exterior design by the esteemed Tim Heywood, on her exploration adventure around the world. Five months later, we caught up with Lili’s captain Andrew Carter for all the details of her action-packed world tour, to find out an answer to the question, ‘Where in the world is Lili now?’

One undeniable prevailing trend in yachting in recent years has been the increase in demand to charter in increasingly remote and adventurous locations. In a dynamic industry that always seeks to evolve and innovate the newest technology, modes and methods, the bar for superyachts to reach is climbing ever higher. Enter Lili, the 55m Amels superyacht, who embarked last December on what can only be described as the charter adventure of a lifetime. 

Equipped with an abundance of features - from an on-board cinema to an expert spa professional - to ensure her guests enjoy the height of luxury during their stay, Lili has been exploring the far-flung corners of the world’s oceans since her foray into the Maldives in the middle of last December. 

At the time of writing, Lili is basking in the Mediterranean sun in northern Sardinia, having stopped off in the Middle East en route to the Indian Ocean. As Captain Carter told us, “Lili has been chartering in the South West corner of Turkey and also the Italian Riviera (Capri, Amalfi, etc…) and expects a very busy and successful summer charter season!” 

In terms of what is next for Imperial’s crown charter jewel, she expects to stop off at the Balearics in early August for mid summer season during her short stay in the Mediterranean. September will see a Mediterranean month, preceding a shipyard stop in November - October months, before embarking out to the Caribbean in December. 

Captain Carter has confirmed that the requests for charter have been coming in thick and fast - in shedding some light on Lili’s commercial success, he adds, “The success is based on the quality of our crew and the experience offered on board… we look forward to discovering more!”

Carter also reports that the team is not only “on time on the Worldwide Tour Plan” but also perhaps unsurprisingly have “considerably extended [their] possibilities, so charter guests can expect the best from the vessel and the crew”. 

Such is testament to Lili’s unfettered success, and we at Superyachts.com can confirm that we will certainly be keeping a close eye on this dream vessel’s journey as she sails onward.

Lili is currently available for charter with Imperial Yachts.
