Bargains at the Summer Sails

Published on May 22, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

As the summer season swings into action, the world’s finest superyachts are either returning from a winter lapping up the Caribbean sunshine or emerging fresh from the shipyard after a few months makeover and fastidious cleaning – inside and out.  It’s the perfect time to dig out the platinum plastic and book yourself a Mediterranean charter.  Here’s a tasty trio to tempt…

Beachseeker (above) – This Sunseeker 105, first launched in 2002, is fully crewed and ready to accompany you on lazy cruises around the western Mediterranean.  Sleeping eight guests in four cabins including a split-level owner’s suite, with additional accommodation for the four-crew, Beachseeker is well known for her wide array of water toys to keep you amused at sea.  Beginning with a sumptuous Jacuzzi bath on the flybridge, the Sunseeker 105 also has all of these tucked into the garage – a Piranha 4.8m RIB, three-seater Jet Ski Sea-Doo (new for 2012), wakeboard, water-skis, banana, two canoes, Sea-Bob, three man donut and towable Screamer.  She’s all yours from 49,000 euros per week in the low season.

Lady Natinia (above) – Another 105, this time a 2004 Italian-design Canados, Lady Natinia has sleek lines matched by very impressive performance with top speeds approaching 30 knots.   Inside she is thoughtfully laid out with a sociable open-plan saloon with forward dining area and the capacity to sleep eight guests in four cabins plus space for six-crew.  Boasting a gymnasium on the lower deck, Lady Natinia also has a 4.8m tender, a pair of two-seater Jet Skis, two donuts, wakeboard, water-skis and two complete sets of leisure diving equipment alongside snorkeling paraphernalia.  For the pleasure of hopping onboard you’ll pay as little as 49,000 euros a week in low season.

African Queen (above and below) – Moving up a few feet, this 2009 Benetti Classic 120 is a real beauty.  Spanning three decks, African Queen has accommodation for 11 guests across five cabins with the owner’s cabin occupying a large chunk of the forward main deck.  Space comes in abundance and all her soft furnishing was replaced in 2011 to enhance her style and comfort – the zero speed stabilisers extend this comfort and stop your G&T from sloshing about at anchor.  More than adequately equipped with a tender, three-seater Yamaha Wave Rider, water-skis, wakeboard and towing rings, Captain Christophe Serra and his seven multilingual crew members are at your service to host and entertain.  Prices start from 105,000 euros per week low season.
