The 49m Superyacht with 18 Staterooms - For Charter with WYG

Super Yachts Charters - Wed, 04/21/2021 - 13:00
The 49m Superyacht with 18 Staterooms - For Charter with WYG Though she is undeniably stylish, Queen Eleganza is - at least at first glance - just like any other modern luxury superyacht.

Sporting an elegant profile, expansive deck spaces and a large swim platform, the Croatian-built 49m would look just as at home exploring the islands of the Bahamas as cruising the Adriatic coast.

Behind her sophisticated exterior, however, Queen Eleganza’s interior can only be described as an ingenious distribution of volume and layout. Boasting one of the highest sleeping occupancies of any charter yacht on the market, Queen Eleganza achieves the remarkable feat of remaining spacious, comfortable, and every bit a luxury superyacht.   

Built in 2018, Queen Eleganza is a top-of-the-line luxury yacht with the latest in amenities and entertainment systems to match. But it is not her impressive arsenal of water toys, vast open deck spaces or warm interior decor that sets this purpose-built charter yacht apart from the crowd.

With incredible onboard accommodation for some 36 guests in 18 spacious staterooms, this 49m offers a guest capacity quite unlike any other on the market.

Extremely adaptable for large groups of friends or families, the appeal of this unique charter experience is undeniable.

Queen Eleganza's 18 staterooms make no compromise on comfort or luxury, each with a calming neutral decor and equipped with its own en suite bathroom.

From sunbathing to watersports, to chef-prepared meals, there is something to appeal to everyone onboard Queen Eleganza. And should you ever choose to venture onto shore, Croatia’s spectacular coastline provides the backdrop for a luxury yacht vacation of a lifetime. 

Queen Eleganza is available for charter with World Yacht Group at €62,000 per week. Get in touch today to secure your booking.

A Captain’s Insight into Fiji’s Blue Lanes Initiative

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 04/15/2021 - 13:00
A Captain’s Insight into Fiji’s Blue Lanes Initiative Fiji’s Blue Lanes Initiative has given superyacht owners, guests and charterers a safe passage to once again enjoy the thrilling cruising grounds of this quintessential South Pacific destination. Guests have been able to arrive on private jets and rendezvous with their yacht, where they are then taken away to cruise, swim, surf, dive and fall in love with the dreamy islands of Fiji. Captain Trent Jones of 67m M/Y Maria shares his recent experiences in Fiji…

Owners, charterers and guests can fly into the Nadi International Airport on a private jet, where they are then taken straight to the iconic Port Denarau Marina. Whilst completing the mandatory 14-day quarantine period, guests will still be able to cruise the Fijian waters without disembarking. At present, a naval boat will still be in place to shadow superyachts during quarantine, but once cleared they can then follow their submitted itinerary.

67m Amels superyacht Maria (ex Aquarius) is one yacht to have taken advantage of the Blue Lanes initiative. “The guest arrival at the airport and transport to the yacht was a painless experience,” says Captain Trent Jones, “and from there the trip was the same as if it were any other year.

“We also submitted a broad, pre-planned itinerary prior to the trip which gave us plenty of scope and we were allowed to adjust this for the weather. The idea (of monitoring the cruise with a chase boat or AIS) is good and it worked well in practice to ensure that no yachts, while cruising in quarantine, have any accidental interactions with locals during the 14-day quarantine period, while still ensuring the guests have the best possible trip with flexibility.”

Restrictions do apply however these can be easily navigated with the help of a South Pacific agent. Eligibility for the VIP Blue Lanes is as follows:

  • Engage a Fiji Yacht agent
  • Provide a negative RT-PCR test <72hrs from departure.
  • Provide an itinerary for where they intend to cruise within Fijian waters.
  • Bear the cost of a shadow boat during their quarantine cruising period.
  • Adhere to all conditions as per the Blue Lane initiative under the Fijian COVID Safe Economic Recovery Framework.

Cynthia Rasch, CEO of Port Denarau Marina, comments that “Port Denarau Marina has worked tirelessly with the Fijian Government to ensure that our maritime borders remain open and that superyachts continue to enjoy the wonders of the region. Fiji is Covid contained and open to superyachts, and we are eager to welcome you to our sun-drenched shores.

“With great diving – our coral reefs are teeming with colour and life – it is no wonder that we are known as the soft coral capital of the world, and arguably have one of the top surfing spots. As a VIP Guest under our Blue Lanes initiative, you can also enjoy cruising our turquoise blue waters while in quarantine. Where else would you rather be?”

A sprawling chain of over 300 rugged islands covered in a haze of the deepest emerald, Fiji’s offers an eclectic mix of sugary white sand beaches and cerulean waters teeming with diverse marine wildlife. For superyacht owners and charters, the Blue Lanes initiative offers a rare opportunity for adventure and a return to life on the water.

New Support Vessel In Build For Charter Favourite 72m Axioma

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 04/15/2021 - 11:00
New Support Vessel In Build For Charter Favourite 72m Axioma When 72m Dunya superyacht Axioma left her Majorcan refit yard in November to cross the Atlantic for a Caribbean season, the world she was released back into had changed somewhat significantly. Despite the unparalleled challenges that have swept the globe, Axioma has defied the odds with a resoundingly successful 2020-2021 charter season, including her first-ever festive charters. The much sought-after superyacht is set to become even more enticing with a support vessel set for delivery in 2023.

Available for charter through its Central Agent, Yachting Partners International, Axioma welcomes 12 guests in 6 opulent cabins designed by the renowned Alberto Pinto. The superyacht also boasts a plethora of exciting onboard facilities, ranging from a Beach Club and Spa to Jet Skis and SeaBobs.

Non-Stop Charter

Having adapted to put in place new measures to guarantee onboard safety, Axioma has enjoyed a busy season in the Caribbean, cruising the Leeward Islands from Antigua to Anguilla and securing back-to-back booking across the season. “It was an incredible season,” says Chief Stewardess Heather Campbell. “Our goal was to make up for what may have been lacking ashore. If clubs and restaurants weren’t open, we were able to compensate, providing everything onboard.

“We’re renowned for our spa, casino and onboard entertainment… Of course, our main purpose was to create unforgettable and unique experiences for our guests. We want them to remember their charter aboard Axioma for a long time and share their memories with friends.”

Alena Zilayova, Senior Charter Fleet Manager at Yachting Partners International, praised Heather and the crew for providing such experiences in a testing situation. “I would like to thank guests and brokers who believe in Axioma, the professionalism of her crew and their ability to do everything in their power for guests under such difficult and complex conditions.”

Axioma is looking forward to the season ahead, where she will be cruising in the West Mediterranean across destinations that include the Cote d’Azur. Corsica, Sardinia and the Adriatic from May to mid-October.

Support on the Way

If Axioma’s incredible array of amenities and onboard luxury was not already enough, the superyacht is set to become a haven for unlimited adventures with a new support vessel under construction.

The addition of a support vessel will allow charterers to bring extra guests, whether children, grandchildren or friends. The new vessel will operate alongside Axioma and carry an additional ten guests in five cabins, offering the same level of comfort and leisure as they would expect from the mothership.

The support vessel will have her own dedicated main saloon, spa and swim platform, with plenty of toys and even a mini-submarine! One of the standout features will be a touch-and-go helipad designed for multi-purpose use, transforming into an outdoor disco, cinema, basketball court or events space.

Limited Availability for 2021

Feelings of escapism and the lure of a luxury getaway have become much stronger after the postponements in 2020, and superyachts provide the perfect basis to do so in safety and opulence.

Alena Zilayova notes that once travel restrictions were lifted, bookings picked up quickly last year, with Turkey and Croatia among the first to open their coasts in 2020. Alena expects the same to be the case this year, with the French Riviera, Southern Italy and the Balearics proving particularly popular.

With the YPI office already responding to requests for 2022, Alena Zilayova encourages anyone considering a 2021 charter to get in contact quickly, with new contracts in place to remove any risks should cancellation be necessary.

Introducing Pangea 2.0 eco travel towel for adventure and outdoors

For all of these adventures, and pretty much every other activity, you need a towel. Microfibre travel towels are usually 100% plastic so are not green or sustainable. So we …

Return to flying

Booker Gliding - Tue, 04/06/2021 - 11:22

 As from 29th March we have been able to fly again, although only solo - two seater flying returns on 12th April. We were unable to go on our usual Spring expedition to Lleweni Parc because of the latest lockdown, but we are currently enjoying a mini expedition to Chiltern Park, near Wallingford, as guests of Dennis Pearson of Chiltern Airsports. This is because we are being prevented from flying at Wycombe Air Park because of a commercial dispute between the airfield manager (CEO of Heliair) and the airfield owner (Bucks County Council), where we are caught in the crossfire.

While we attempt to get the situation resolved, we are making the most of our time at Chiltern Park - getting current again and exploring the local area, as can be seen from the pics below.

Symeon getting in touch with the grassroots
Jim and John ready to go
K21 316 on approach
Nick and Inge's mobile teabar - a welcome sight on a cold day
Howard making the most of the day - landing at 1814
