Now here’s a great way to end the week: Ocean Independence tells me the 116-foot Horizon motoryacht Wheels is giving some sizable discounts for last-minute charters in the West Mediterranean through the end of this month.
The regular weekly base rate to charter Wheels is €66,500. For charters of at least seven days, the owner is dropping it by 20 percent. If you book 10 days or more, the discount grows to 30 percent.
Wheels is a 2002 build that accommodates 10 guests. I was on board Wheels about four years ago in Italy, where the yacht showed quite well. She has an elegant interior decor for a motoryacht her size, done by Evan K. Marshall, who typically works aboard much larger megayachts. The owner was continuing to maintain the yacht and add new features to entice charter clients, including an iMerge entertainment system. Wheels also offers zero-speed stabilizers, which can be hard to find aboard charter yachts in her size range.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Wheels or help you book her for a late-season charter in the West Mediterranean with the newly announced discounts.
