10 Best Charter Yachts with News for Summer 2016

From deals and discounts to new chefs and scuba options, yachts are trying to entice bookings

Tiger’s Eye, a 98-foot Hargrave motoryacht, is open for Bahamas yacht charter with no delivery fees, through Churchill Yacht Partners.

Regency Yacht Vacations says the 62-foot Leopard sailing catamaran The Big Dog is giving a 15-percent discount during mid-July in the Virgin Islands.

Northrop and Johnson Worldwide Yacht Charters says the 90-foot motoryacht Alaskan Story has a cancellation and is now available June 4-11 in Alaska at an incentive rate of $35,000 (down from the usual $52,000).

Also in Alaska, the 74-foot Hatteras motoryacht Northern Light still has availability from Juneau to Sitka or vice versa, with Infinity Yachts.

The 127-foot Vitters sailing yacht Cinderella IV, marketed through McMaster Yachts, has just welcomed a new chef. Viktor Erikson, a native of Sweden, previously worked aboard yachts including the 167-foot Codecasa motoryacht Aldabra. Prior to joining the yachting industry about a decade ago, he trained under Michelin-starred chef Norbert Lang and became head chef at two restaurants in Stockholm. Erikson also was head chef aboard HMS Vidar during his time in the Swedish Royal Navy.

Edmiston and Company says the 161-foot Feadship Teleost (one of our editor’s favorites here on CharterWave) is dropping her weekly base rate from $225,000 to $180,000 for Mediterranean yacht charter.

The 116-foot Crescent motoryacht Unbridled, with Northrop and Johnson, has added scuba to the onboard program along with a PADI-certified dive instructor.

Also from Northrop and Johnson, the 197-foot Abeking & Rasmussen motoryacht Dream is repositioning. From June 20 to July 1, the weekly base rate in Southern Italy is dropping from €450,000 to €349,000.

Neptune Group Yachting just welcomed the 97-foot Hargrave motoryacht Forever Young to the charter fleet, and the first client to book a week aboard in Florida or the Bahamas will receive a weekly base rate of $31,500 (versus the regular $35,000).

Ocean Independence says the 173-foot Oceanco motoryacht Sunrise is giving a whopping 20-percent discount for charters at the end of May.
