In a quirky turn of events, two similarly named yachts are now advertising charter availability for this summer in the Bahamas. Churchill Yacht Partners has open dates aboard the 115-foot Bennett motoryacht Camarina Royale, while Northrop and Johnson has availability aboard the 163-foot Christensen motoryacht Casino Royale.
Camarina Royale is a 2001 build that most recently was refit in 2012. She is advertised for 10 guests in five staterooms including a king-bed master, two queen-bed guest cabins and a pair of twin-bed cabins, each with a bunk-style Pullman berth. She is well-outfitted for Bahamas yacht charter with a 28-foot Buddy Davis towed tender, two SeaDoos, fishing gear, snorkeling gear and tow toys. On board, charter guests can enjoy a Kaleidescape entertainment system as well as a sundeck hot tub.
Casino Royale (shown in the photograph at right) is a 2008 build that seriously entered charter during winter 2010-11 in the Caribbean. She has a décor that was designed with a nod to the “Casino Royale” James Bond movie, with interior details including images of Bond girls in backlit glass silhouette as well as in stylized artwork. Guest accommodations for 12 include four cabins with king-size beds, and two cabins that each have a double plus a twin-size bed. An elevator services all decks, including the sundeck, and zero-speed stabilizers are among the amenities that should keep guests comfortable underway.
The lowest weekly base rate to charter Camarina Royale is $79,000, while the lowest weekly base rate to book Casino Royale is $250,000. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about both yachts or help you book a week on board the one that appeals to you.
