The 169-foot Alloy sailing yacht Red Dragon has reduced her weekly base rate by about 15 percent, dropping it from €200,000 to €175,000 for charters during July and August in Croatia and the Ionian Islands.
Red Dragon is a 2008 build that made a fantastic impression at the 2012 Antigua Charter Yacht Show this past December. She accommodates eight guests in four cabins and has all the modern amenities you would expect of a charter yacht in her price range, including WiFi, iPod docking stations, a Kaleidescape digital entertainment system, multiple scuba sets, lots of water toys, and an elegant interior decor.
I could tell you more, but it's easier to let the following video of Red Dragon speak for itself. If you like what you see, the management company is McMaster Yachts and any reputable charter broker can help you book a week onboard at the newly announced discount rate.
One of the most popular charter yachts during recent years in the British Virgin Islands has been the 76-foot sailing catamaran Akasha. Along with her sisterships, King's Ransom and Zingara, Akasha has become a premier catamaran for exploring the islands. She offers more space than most of the other sailing catamarans available in the region, and her charter program has earned many strong client reviews for service and cuisine.
Now, Akasha is offering a $2,000 discount on charters in June, July, in August, either in the British Virgin Islands or the Northern Caribbean in and around Sint Maarten.
Akasha is a 2005 build that accommodates 10 guests. Her weekly base rate starts at $41,000 before the newly announced discount.
A client who was onboard for a charter in March wrote: "Could not have had a better ‘first time’ experience in the Caribbean! Thank you so much for everything – Amazing food, drinks and company! You truly made the experience a unique and amazing one, and one that I’ll never forget! Don’t want to leave and will not ever forget Akasha and her amazing crew."
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Akasha or help you book a charter this summer at the newly announced discount rate.
Northrop and Johnson sends word that the 164-foot Feadship motoryacht Inevitable has had a charter cancellation. She is once again available in the South of France between June 10-20, and the owner is so keen to fill the dates that he is offering nine days for the price of seven.
The weekly base rate to charter Inevitable is $190,000, so getting two days for free is the equivalent of a $54,000 discount.
Inevitable is a 1990 build that was most recently refit in 2008. She accommodates 10 guests in five cabins and is based year-round in the Mediterranean, where her captain and crew have amassed a great deal of local knowledge. The yacht has interior decor by my all-time favorite designer, Patrick Knowles, and offers top-notch amenities including VSAT-supported Internet access and a sundeck hot tub.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Inevitable or help you book her in early June to receive a nine-day charter for the price of seven days.
Ocean Drive tells me that the 74-foot Sunseeker motoryacht Vogue of Beaulieu is giving 10-percent off charters of three days or longer on the French Riviera.
The discount is valid all year round, except during the high-season months of July and August.
Vogue of Beaulieu is a 2001 launch that was most recently refit in 2008. She accommodates eight guests in four cabins and is a fast charter yacht, with a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed of 31 knots.
Vogue of Beaulieu is available for day charters as well as week-long charters. The lowest day rate (before the discount) is €3,500, while the lowest weekly base rate is €21,500.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Vogue of Beaulieu of help you book her for at least three days to get the 10-percent discount on those rates.
