Nicholson Yachts tells me the 108-foot Alloy sailing yacht Marae is offering a 10-percent discount on charters from mid-April through June. With the discount, the weekly base rate drops from $54,000 to $48,600.
Given the dates of the offer, charter clients will be able to take advantage of the incentive rate in multiple destinations. From mid-April through May, Marae will be in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Key West, Florida. By June, she will be making her way up the U.S. East Coast, with charter itineraries available out of Charleston, South Carolina, and as far north as New England.
Marae is a 2004 build that accommodates six guests in three staterooms. One has a queen bed, one has a double and the third has twins, making the yacht great for family charters. Four crew are on board.
I toured Marae in spring 2013, and I had lunch aboard with chef Sue Ficken in December 2013. The yacht is in stunning condition, and the food is quite good. Marae is a classic sailing yacht through and through, with rich woodwork and traditional charm. She has enjoyed excellent upkeep and to my eye looked outstanding nearly a full decade after launching.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Marae or help you book a week on board at the incentive rate for charter dates through June 2015.
