Last month, I told you about a deal aboard the 99-foot Benetti motoryacht Salu, which announced that she was dropping her weekly base rate from €65,000 to €55,250 (a savings of 15 percent) for a fill-the-gap charter August 31 through September 7 from Bodrum, Turkey, to Athens, Greece.
Now comes word from management company Ocean Independence that the deal is also available aboard Salu from July 24-31 in Croatia and Montenegro.
I was last aboard Salu in 2009, and I found her to be a memorable design. Many Benetti motoryachts have dark woods and high-gloss finishes that can seem visually heavy to some people, but Salu is different with a light, airy interior that is at once comfortably elegant and family friendly.
The owners built Salu to mimic many of the amenities they enjoyed while chartering the much larger, 164-foot Benetti motoryacht Amnesia, including features such as zero-speed stabilizers, which are usually found only aboard larger and more expensive charter yachts.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Salu or help you book her from Turkey to Greece, or in Montenegro and Croatia, at the currently available discount rate.
