The 161-foot Feadship motoryacht Teleost is one of my favorite charter yachts of all time. She is an elegant yacht with a crew who excel at first-class service, top-notch cuisine and tons of fun for the guests. I first got to know this yacht and her crew a full decade ago, while on charter in the Seychelles in 2006. Capt. Nigel Burnet was in command, and he remains one of the two rotating captains aboard today. I most recently chatted with him a little over a year ago, when Teleost was on display as part of the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, looking as fresh and updated as always, and sporting a recently added water slide.
Now comes word from management house Edmiston and Company that Teleost is being offered at a significant discount this summer in the Mediterranean. She is expected to arrive in Mediterranean waters by early June, and is accepting inquiries for charter dates throughout the summer at a weekly base rate of $180,000, down from the usual $225,000.
Teleost is a 1998 build whose owner continuously updates her to keep her in meticulous condition. (Again, I’ve been getting on and off this yacht for years. That’s not just a marketing line. She always looks gorgeous.) The yacht accommodates 10 guests in a choice of six staterooms, with 10 crew aboard for a ratio of one-to-one guest service.
In addition to the aforementioned water slide, Teleost also carries standup Jet Skis, sit-down WaveRunners, windsurfers, fishing gear, underwater scooters, kayaks, snorkeling gear and a slew of tow toys, water skis and wakeboards.
It is unusual for a yacht of Teleost‘s caliber to be offered at such an extensive discount without a time constraint on the charter dates. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week aboard this summer in the Mediterranean.
