This past summer, I told you about the 98-foot Broward motoryacht Reflections, which was a newcomer to the crewed yacht charter market in Alaska. She now has a full season of bookings under her belt, and all reports I’ve heard are that she is a great new addition to the fleet–which is why I think she’s going to be among the most popular motoryachts in Alaska for the summer 2014 season.
Management company Infinity Yacht Charters tells me that it is currently accepting inquiries for Reflections in Alaska, and that some dates are already booked for summer 2014. Remaining dates of availability are from Sitka to Juneau from June 1-8, June 23-30, July 14-21, and August 5-12; and from Juneau to Sitka from June 12-19 and July 25 through August 1.
“She was built in 1982, which I know scares some people in terms of her age, but this is a great boat,” broker Michael Sawyer of Infinity Yachts told me this past summer. “I spent a night on her and looked over every inch of her, and she’s a great package. The owner, for the past 10 years, has been aboard Reflections from May through August pretty much nonstop with friends and business guests in Alaska. He spent $1.25 million refitting her over the past couple of years, and he has the yacht completely dialed out for chartering in Alaska, including a 30-foot sport boat. You can hire something like that as an add-on for other charter boats, but it’s rare to see that size of a tender with a charter yacht up here.”
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Reflections or help you book a week aboard for summer 2014 in Alaska.
