Now this is the kind of announcement that really gets my scuba-loving blood flowing. Yachting Partners International has just welcomed the 137-foot Gulf Craft motoryacht De Lisle III to the charter fleet, with availability on the Great Barrier Reef as well as in French Polynesia.
De Lisle III is a 2008 build that accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms. The master spans the full beam of the yacht. There is also a VIP cabin, a double-bed cabin, a twin-bed cabin, and a cabin that can convert with either twins or a double bed.
The interior decor aboard De Lisle III includes Italian marble, natural leather, and fittings of 24-carat gold plate. YPI Group is promoting her as one of the most luxurious yachts available for charter in the South Pacific region today.
In addition, the owner of De Lisle III is offering (at additional cost) charters of his Cessna Citation Sovereign private jet. That should make island transfers from international airports in Australia and Tahiti easy.
The weekly base rate to charter De Lisle III on the Great Barrier Reef or in French Polynesia is $125,000. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week on board.
