Superyacht Elixir Arrives on the Charter Market

Elixir emerged from the AMELS yard in June this year, building on a proven platform to create an evolution in superyacht lifestyle. Now, after arriving in the Mediterranean, Elixir has broken on to the charter market with Y.CO to provide the very best experiences available on the water.

Y.CO has unveiled the exquisite lifestyle on board with a ream of stunning new photos. We take a look to get a better understanding of Elixir; a proven platform with undeniable appeal.

The exterior design by Tim Heywood is an immediately distinctive part of the AMELS 180 DNA, presenting guests tendering to the boat with the joy of flowing lines and distinctive style; with each of the myriad design elements reflecting the unbridled elegance within.

Her rich, contemporary interiors were drawn by Laura Sessa and can accommodate 12 guests in 5 beautifully styled staterooms. The proven platform of the AMELS 180 itself, ensures complete comfort underway and a generous layout for those on board; most notably of which is a generous owner’s area with fold down balcony and large steam shower in the ensuite.

The exterior areas are also remarkable, with one of the most spacious sun decks ever seen on a 55 metre yacht with Jacuzzi and backlit onyx bar. Elixir takes the dedicated charter edge one step further by offering a large beach club, sauna and dive equipment for underwater adventures across the world’s best locations.

Making a Break for British Columbia on Cloudbreak

Making a Break for British Columbia on Cloudbreak

September marks the start of an incredible charter journey on board Cloudbreak; offering modern day adventurers the chance to travel the world in style, hike the wilds of British Columbia and heli-ski the peaks, before cruising Central America and surfing just off idyllic Caribbean islands.

In May, SuperYachtsMonaco announced an exciting and upcoming navigation which explored nature, ocean and island alike. From September 1st, Cloudbreak will embark for British Columbia, before heading back to the shipyard over October, all in preparation for her November journey to the Caribbean and Central America.

Named after a Fijian surf Mecca, Cloudbreak is the perfect platform to any exploration thanks to an incredibly varied list of toys, including: Ski Boat; four different Jet Skis; four Kayaks; two Minicat Dinghies; four F5S SeaBobs; one Flyboard; ten Kite Surfing Kites; five Kite Surfing Boards; three Wind Surfing boards; wakeboards; surfboards; Paddleboards; Sea pool; inflatable towables; Mountain and Road bikes; Ski and Snowboard equipment; Golfing equipment and full diving gear.

Cloudbreak is the most luxurious and well equipped explorer yacht on the water. This 72.50 metre luxury expedition vessel, built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016, was drawn by superyacht designer Espen Oeino to compliment the adventures she was born to make.

Rugged, modern and ultra-stylish, Cloudbreak is a vision from the shore and provides an unparalleled lifestyle on deck. The open exterior spaces offer friends and family a space to kick-back and enjoy an alternative pace which can suit any number of guests, from all 12 to just one person seeking solace instead of adventure.

While the possibilities of stepping on to the tender, heading ashore and discovering new territories across the planned cruising grounds are endless, the home atmosphere on board is comfortable, simplistic and relaxed, with an expert Christian Liaigre taste to bring the whole surrounding together into a luxury residential feel.

Perfect for a relaxing voyage across the waters of Eastern Europe.

Seagull II
Seagull II is an idyllic reflection of elegance underway, with a classically styled exterior expertly brought up to the luxury standards of today.

JoyMe
Phillip Zepter Yachts built the 49.91 metre JoyMe in 2011, an outstanding superyacht with a striking red and striped yellow hull, cutting-edge futuristic superstructure and graphics covering the lateral walkway. A matter of individual style on the outside, JoyMe is a revelation of on board living within. Large exterior areas provide the spaces for a yacht built to entertain larger numbers, while the interior continues the creative trend with wall graphics, art icon-inspired cabins carrying thematic styling throughout.

Daima has won every race in the Bodrum Cup, and offers the chance for up to ten guests to cruise the water in both style and comfort.

Riana
The 41 metre Riana may have been launched in 2007, but her spirit echoes a more elegant time of sailing excellence. The lifestyle under sail is surrounded by every inch of luxury, whether you’re enjoying high winds of the Caribbean winter season for the thrill of the race, or floating off the coastal doldrums of the East Mediterranean for a summer escape. The exterior spaces on deck are unparalleled, offering the perfect chance to entertain, while her interior provides a rich and sophisticated style to retire in comfort.

Custom built in 1975 by CRN, Parvati underwent a full refit in 2014 and today stands as a superyacht with a classic style and a perfect chance for 11 guests to take the ocean, surrounded by every comfort possible.

Charter Focus: How to Choose Your Ideal Superyacht

Charter Focus: How to Choose Your Ideal Superyacht

With the Summer season in full swing, the world is now looking to escape the status quo and take to the waters for the ultimate tailored experience. With over 10,000 superyachts in the world, Nick Sevier - Director of Titan Fleet Management - offers up a guide to choosing your ideal charter yacht.

 “With so many yachts to choose from, it’s no wonder many people do not know where to start,” explains Nick Sevier. “It is best to use a charter broker to advise you. Our brokers have a wealth of knowledge, many of whom were former yacht captains, the team has visited a large number of our charter boats.”

With this in mind, Titan Fleet Management has charted nine essential steps on How to Choose a Superyacht for Charter.

Budget
“Your charter broker will need to know your budget, yachts vary hugely in price. By having a budget in place early on, this will ease and limit the range of boats to choose from. You will need to factor in fuel and mooring costs."

According to Nick Sevier, smaller is not always better. Newer, smaller yachts may hold appeal, but might not provide the space an older, larger yacht could for a similar cost.

Destination
“The location you decide to charter will depend on the time of year you are planning to travel,” continues Sevier. “[as well as] the type of experience you are looking for. Charter locations and seasons vary so do sailing conditions, the weather at different times of the year is important to take into account.”

Guests 
“When choosing a holiday home, the number of bedrooms is important, the same applies to choosing a yacht to charter. If you wish to charter with couples, then you may need extra double cabins, if you have lots of family then you’ll require more twin berths [...] The number of people allowed by law, without a licence, on a charter is 12.”

Experience
“When choosing a luxury yachting holiday, it’s crucial to consider everything you wish to do, whether it be relaxing on a remote beach, soaking up the sun or island hopping [...] You may choose to charter the Mediterranean waters, visiting the history and culture of bustling cities along the way [...] If you’re looking to travel a long distance, considered deciding on a yacht built for long voyages.”

Accommodation
“Every superyacht has a different on board cabin arrangement, [...] it is important to think about the arrangement of the boat and how its layout fits your requirements.”

If you wish for a quiet cabin consider suites, that don’t share an adjoining bulkhead, this allows one to watch TV without disturbing your neighbours. Choose a yacht with an interior design you like, there is little point in spending a week aboard a boat with a style you dislike.”

Superyacht Toys & Travel
“Many large ships are moored at anchor, therefore means of transport to and from the yacht are important to consider [...] most mega yachts have more than one tender, one for carrying people to and from the shore and one for water sports. For guests requiring swifter transportation [...] a helicopter is a fast option and a great way to start your charter in style, not all superyachts have helipads, consider this accordingly in your planning."

Crew
“An exceptional crew can really bring the whole charter holiday together with a personal touch, whilst ensuring the privacy and pleasure of you and your party. [Privacy] is up to guests and how much interaction they wish to have with staff on board. Many ships that accommodate 12 people, also carry 12 crew."

Food
“Fine cuisine is one of the plus points of superyachts, on board dining can compare to that of leading restaurants around the world. Through prior assessment of the specialities of the chef, will ensure they match your palate. You may also inquire before charter about your food preferences and expectations.”

Corporate Events
“When seeking a corporate yacht charter, there are diverse details to take into contemplation, which vary greatly from a charter holiday. Think about the budget and how you want your event to be, you may need numerous outdoor entertainment amenities, with spacious deck and bar areas, or an official meeting room.”

This is only a brief insight into the charter expertise of Titan Fleet Management, get in touch here to find out how you can plan a tailored experience.

How to Cruise the Waters of Brazil During the Olympics

How to Cruise the Waters of Brazil During the Olympics

The world is looking to Rio de Janeiro this week as the Olympic torch nears its final destination. With such natural beauty, rich culture and a whole new reason to visit this month, Brazil Yacht Services tells us how owners and charter guests can spend a week on the waters of Brazil.

Whether you have tickets to the games or not, this example of a customisable itinerary by Brazil Yacht Services offers an inspirational insight into where yachts can visit from Rio de Janeiro to Ilhabela to explore the wilds of Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro
After landing in Galeao International Airport, or leaving the grand Olympic village, visitors in Rio are implored to take in the sights, from Christ the Redeemer to the stunning Botanical Gardens, before heading to the yacht to enjoy your journey.

Ilha Grande
Depart from Rio de Janeiro in the morning and head 60 nautical miles to the stunning setting of Ilha Grande, where yachts can drop anchor at the Enseada das Palmas. This idyllic and secluded anchorage spot on the north side of the island offers the perfect chance to dive, snorkel and play both on and under the water.

The Lopes Mendes beach, one of the most beautiful beaches around, can be reached after trekking only 15 minutes through the forest and emerging into paradise. An experience for the adventurous and the surf obsessed. All before watching the sunset, dining on board and spending the night at anchor.

Only a few miles from Enseada das Palmas is the beautiful snorkelling haven of Blue Lagoon, offering even more fun on the water before heading to Saco do Ceu for a meal ashore in one of the world’s finest restaurants for lunch.

The final meal of the day can be found in the village of Abraão, the island’s main town, towards the end of the day to dine with your feet in the sand while the yacht sits patiently for your return with the hills in the background.

Paraty
After making your way west around the northern tip of the island, stopping to explore, swim and relax, you can expect nothing but the finest in your next stop of Paraty. 

Anchor just across the bay from the town and spend a day admiring the architecture, visiting the local artisanal cachaça distilleries, exploring the town by horse and cart as well as breaking to dive under waterfalls at your whim.

The safe and secure town of Paraty also offers a number of incredible restaurants, which can go from rowdy to romantic depending on your mood.

Saco do Mamangua
The Saco do Mamangua is also known as the Brazilian Fjords, just to the east of Paraty. This is arguably one of the most beautiful locations on the coast of Rio de Janeiro. Perfectly calm enclosed waters act as a home for the yacht while you spend time on the water or head up the Sugar Loaf peak for breath-taking views.

Experience the rare luxury of anchoring off the Ilha da Cotia in the middle of the fjord for lunch, surrounded by densely forested hills and chirping wildlife. Cruise east out of Mamangua around the headland to make your dinner arrangements in Praia da Cajabia via waterfalls, hiking and swimming.

Ilhabela
It’s never easy saying goodbye to an experience like this; however, while you contemplate heading back to Rio via helicopter for more of the Olympics or to head home via Sao Paulo, Ilhabela offers the perfect goodbye to the Brazilian coast.

Conservation parks, hiking, swimming and high-end shopping, Ilhabela is the home of nationwide famous sailing week and a yachting paradise.

This is just an example of what the Brazilian coast has to offer, created by the regional experts at Brazil Yacht Services. Customisation is key, and this inspirational itinerary provides a better understanding into the stunning escape that is Brazil.
