The MYBA Charter Show in Barcelona is just over one month away and we are beside ourselves with excitement already. This show is one of the highlights of our year and the line up is already looking exceptional. Rest assured that there will be something for everyone but for now let’s take a look at the biggest yachts that have already been confirmed.
Builder: ICON Yachts
Charter: From €460,000 p/w (summer), €490,000 (winter)
Key features: On this explorer yacht you’ll find something for everyone and she comes with more yacht toys than you could shake a stick at. Fancy a trip under the sea? No problem, there’s a submarine as well as enough scuba diving gear for a group trip. What about a bit of exploring in the snow? No bother, you can shoot off on the snow scooters for a real adventure. Then head back and relax in the spa pool. Bliss!
Charter From €650,000 p/w
Key features: Launched in 2018 this will be PLANET NINE’S first show and we can’t wait to see her. Built to navigate flat ice, she comes with a panoramic observatory lounge and a commercially approved hangar, perfect for her explorer helicopter.
Charter From €525,000 p/w
Key features: Named after the queen of the fairies from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and having had a major refit in 2012, TITANIA will certainly ensure you have a magical stay. And, if you’re a fitness fanatic you can workout in the onboard glass gym with panoramic views. You’ll find me at the swim up bar though.
Builder: Krupp Germaniawerft
Charter From €310,000 p/w
Key features: Having just been returned to the water in January this year after her most recent refit at Pendennis in the UK, this classic motor yacht feels more luxurious than ever. With her timeless elegance throughout you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a country home rather than on the water. And after a busy day exploring you can come up and stretch out in front of one of the three fires, or head up to the jacuzzi.
Charter: From €700,000 p/w
Key feature: This superyacht was built with space in mind. On the inside, the owner wanted to ensure that the rooms felt cosy rather than vast in order to create a relaxing atmosphere in the interior. It is widely acknowledged that the bigger the saloons the less amount of time people will spend in them. The outside, by comparison, is a different story, with vast amounts of space meaning that on many of the decks people are able to walk side by side or even jog together. There’s even a games deck for basketball and badminton, we wonder how many balls have been lost over the side?
Charter: From €425,000
Key feature: This converted explorer yacht is perfect for long distance adventures, accomodating up to 26 guests in 13 luxurious state rooms. Following her refit in 2017, she is looking different both inside and out and has swapped her recognisable blue hull for white, giving her the ultimate facelift ahead of the 2018 chartering seasons.
