Churchill Yacht Partners tells me the owner of the 154-foot Admiral motoryacht Rhino has sweetened his offer to entice charter bookings this summer in New England.
In late June, I told you that Rhino was offering eight days of charter for the price of seven. Now comes word that the owner is dropping the weekly base rate from $140,000 to $125,000 for the first two charters booked in New England during July and August. That’s a savings of 10 percent.
Previously known on the charter market as Ohana, Rhino got a new owner in 2014 who undertook a substantial a refit. Engines were rebuilt, interior work included everything from soft goods to new Versace tableware, and a twin stateroom was switched to a convertible king/twin stateroom (so Rhino can accommodate five couples in five double staterooms). By all accounts I’ve heard, Rhino is looking fantastic.
As you can see in the photograph at right, the current owner is continuing the yacht’s legacy of offering lots of fun amenities, including a 37-foot Intrepid tender, two Novurania tenders (22 and 18 feet), fishing gear, towable toys and water skis, a 40-foot water slide, a quartet of WaveRunners, two SeaBobs, standup paddleboards, kayaks and more. The owner also has retained the skillful Shane Reid as captain following a number of seasons when Reid earned accolades from charter guests aboard other leading motoryachts.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Rhino or help you secure one of the two charters being offered in New England at the $125,000 base rate this summer.
