With an abundance of history, archaeological sights and breathtaking views, the Turkish Riviera is a must visit during summer 2015!

Spetses – The Little Island with an Air of Quiet Glamour

November 17th, 2014

Spetses – the new ‘go-to’ destination for the global jet-set! Set sail from Athens and set a course straight for the little island of Spetses; arriving in the tiny port of Dapia you will find yourself surrounded by smart cafes and stylish boutiques, set against a backdrop of whitewashed, Neoclassical houses. Just around the corner from the port the cobbled road opens into an expansive piazza that acts as the forecourt for the Poseidonion Grand Hotel once visited by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Bobby Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and Ingrid Bergman. There are three great sandy beaches to chose from for a day of sunbathing and swimming.

Super Yacht of the Week: ICON

November 16th, 2014

Returning to the charter market after a 5 metre extension, ICON is the Boatbookings super yacht of the week. With her extra 5 metres ICON now offers a pool on the main deck for cooling off in ultimate style, as well as a voluminous beach club enjoying light from the pool’s sparkling glass floor panels. It’s in the name that this yacht will always be iconic, but she truly shows what a massive difference a little space makes. Having been lucky enough to visit ICON at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2013, one of the most talked about yachts on display, we were wowed by the huge volumes, open spaces but sense of privacy available.  Icon yachts launched ICON in 2010, with the critics wowed at her ability to offer world-class volumes whilst maintaining a sleek exterior. Following her re-fit and extension she now offers the same beautifully clean lines and a new beautifully contemporary interior.
