Yachting Partners International sends word that the 241-foot Freire motoryacht Naia is available for a Christmas or New Year’s yacht charter in the Caribbean.
Formerly known as Pegaso, Naia used to be a research and expedition yacht. She was built in 2011 and did some chartering, then got a new owner in summer 2013. He sent her to a shipyard to change her science labs into proper guest staterooms, including one that is wheelchair-accessible.
Summer 2013 in the Mediterranean was Naia’s first season of charter with the new ownership. Her interior decor is filled with natural fabrics and textures that create an earthy elegance. Designers used woven leather carpets, limestone inserts, pebble borders, bamboo ceilings, sea grass stair treads, camel leather furniture coverings and more.
Amenities include a helipad, an indoor/outdoor gymnasium with a hot tub, a cinema and an entire deck used as a master apartment.
Naia accommodates 12 guests. There are 22 crew aboard as well.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Naia or help you book her this Christmas or New Year’s in the Caribbean, where her holiday weekly base rate is $635,000. (A premium may apply for Thanksgiving.)
