First Impression: Go
Date toured: December 2010
The master suite (shown in the photograph at right) is on the main deck with a king-size bed. Belowdecks are four additional cabins that can convert into two suites thanks to movable walls. So, if you are a charter party with three couples and four children, you can have Go arranged with a master cabin, two double-bed cabins, and two twin-bed cabins. On the other hand, if you are three couples chartering without children, then each couple can have their own full-beam suites.
“The flexibility is really terrific,” says Leslie Adams, head of the Feadship Charter division. “Very few yachts in this size range offer this kind of flexibility, or three full-beam cabins for couples who want to charter together and split the weekly rate.”
As a brand-new launch, Go has been outfitted with amenities that have become standard aboard charter yachts in the larger size ranges. She has Quantum zero-speed stabilizers, a Kaleidescape digital library of movies and music, WiFi throughout the yacht, high-speed Internet access via VSAT (for when the yacht is not within WiFi range), satellite television, and flat-screen LCD televisions in all the guest areas.
Water toys include a 16-foot tender with tow toys such as water skis and wakeboards, a Laser sailboat, a kayak, and snorkeling gear.
All six crew members are British except for Chef Andre Daniels, who claims to be both British and Australian. He has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants in Sydney, Berlin, Rome, and the South of France, which bodes well for the level of cuisine that will be offered aboard Go.
Go takes 10 guests with six crew at a lowest weekly base rate of €150,000. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week onboard.—Kim Kavin
