Imperial Yachts tells me the owner of the 196-foot Lurssen motoryacht Arkley is offering a 15-percent rate reduction for May and June charters of at least seven days in the Mediterranean.
With the price break, Arkley‘s weekly base rate becomes €365,500.
I was on board Arkley about a year ago, just before she entered the charter market in earnest during last year’s summer season in the Mediterranean. She is an impressive superyacht whose main salon (shown in the photograph at right) is welcoming and adjoins an open space with a library as well as a baby grand player piano. Her dining room on the main deck seats 14 people comfortably, and the master suite forward on this deck is an actual suite with a king-size bed and a full-size study. The his-and-her bathrooms in this suite are done in Italian marble (a steam room is part of the equipment), and the rest of the suite’s décor continues the guest-area themes of zebra wood squares, woven leather panels, bamboo, and waved oak. The color palette is neutral, and the styling and textures are memorable. That’s true not on this deck, but also throughout the entire yacht.
Arkley accommodates a total of 12 charter guests in six staterooms (including that main-deck suites). Two of the guest staterooms have twin beds that convert to queens, and the owner has young children, which means safety gear and toys for tots are all aboard and ready to go.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Arkley or help you book her during May or June at the newly announced incentive rate.
