The 53-foot sailing yacht Ashlana, shown in the photograph above, is going a bit farther than other yachts in offering a "Valentine's Day" charter special. In Ashlana's case, the special deal is going to be good for the entire month of February, for any charters booked in the Caribbean.
What's the deal? Seven nights onboard plus the option to come aboard a night early if you wish, a chilled bottle of champagne waiting upon your arrival, a his-and-her massage, a romantic picnic on a secluded beach, and one dinner at a restaurant ashore paid for by Ashlana's owner.
The price? $7,950 for two guests--nearly $4,000 less than Ashlana's regular weekly charter rate of $11,700 for two guests.
That's one heck of a deal.
Ashlana was built in 1992 and refit in 2007. Chef Christie MacConnell is known for her light raspberry pancakes, oyster-and-artichoke cakes, lobster stew, and individual cheesecakes. Her cooking literally leaves some guests gushing with praise, such as the guest who wrote: "Thank you very much for everything. I enjoyed every minute, from eating blueberry pancakes in the morning to sailing around the beautiful landscapes. It was an absolutely wonderful, life-changing experience."
High praise, indeed. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Ashlana and how to book in time to take advantage of the special February deal. The yacht's management company is Nicholson Yachts.
