FIRECRACKER REVIEW

25% discount if you book in May 2019! Contact us now!

FIRECRACKER has long been one of our favorite yachts on the French Riviera. With her defining shape, and dark hull you will often see her in some of the most exclusive places. Her home is in the French Riviera, and here she stands proudly amongst her Superyacht sisters.


Captain

Fly helm station

Long-standing Captain Jonathan has been at her helm for 3 years and is looking forward to his 4th season on board. He is a firm favorite with our clients and knows all the best spots the Riviera has to offer.


Food

New chef Daniel comes with a wealth of experience from cooking at one of the top 50 world restaurants, Maido in Peru.

Adding to this, he has worked in various Michelin Star and AA Rosette rated restaurants such as Kilworth House Hotel, The Whitebrook (where the Head Chef Chris has just won for his main course “The Great British Menu”) and Adams Restaurant.

He then moved on to a 55m motor yacht in Greece before joining FIRECRACKER where he is super excited to impress each and every client to come aboard.


Social

Aft dinning area

We love FIRECRACKER as she is constantly updated and maintained to the highest standard. Her light and the modern interior offers great volume for her size and leads seamlessly to her vast aft deck where you can dine and relax al freso.


Lounging

Bow sunpads

Her sunpads on the bow are great for cruising along in the summer sun and taking in the stunning views of the French Riviera.


Activities

She also has an impressive list of water toys for the thrill seekers amongst you! The list includes: seabobs, snorkel gear, wakeboards and more!

All this for 25% off the asking price in May?! I couldn’t believe my eyes either… get in touch and speak with Cordy now for more information on this amazing opportunity!

Boats to The Balearics!

We recently had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful motor yacht QUASAR, a Peri Navi 28m, based in Ibiza with a berth just outside the infamous Lio! The yacht looks in stunning condition and has a wonderful crew led by Captain Ian Hawkins. The crew are super keen on water sports and can’t wait to welcome their charter guests on board to show them the hot spots between Ibiza and Mallorca!

Our Top 3 Restaurants on the Amalfi Coast!

The Amalfi coast is not only famous for its stunning scenery but also the wonderful Italian delights to be sampled at some of the best restaurants in the Med. There is a myriad of restaurants that offer amazing views over the Amalfi coast, boasting incredible food of traditional Mediterranean and typical Amalfi dishes.

The Hotel Belmond Caruso in Ravello offers stunning views over the bay and the ideal spot to relax by the pool and have a leisurely lunch; serving fresh, locally sourced dishes that accentuate the seasonal highlights of the coast, there is no better way to start your culinary experience of the Amalfi Coast.

Il Riccio on the Isle of Capri is a Boatbookings favourite, famed for its cerulean blue and white interior and exceptional seafood dishes. Overlooking the sea, the views are unparalleled and the Michelin Starred establishment has been frequented by the likes of Kourtney Kardashian; try the lobster and make sure to tuck in at the dessert bar.

Restaurant Conca del Sogno in Nerano combines the most delectable ingredients of land and sea to create wonderful dishes, served in a candlelit setting overlooking the horizon.  Fish is the star of the show, with supplies of freshly caught seafood being an integral part of the menu.

Speak to an expert broker to get the ball rolling for your Amalfi Coast trip; we have day charters, crewed charters and catamaran rentals so there is something to suit everyone!

The Nicest Things in Nice!

Nice is the central point of the Riviera where the airport is busy with people in a happy holiday mood ready to step out into the glorious sunshine on the Cote d’Azur. Many of our clients will choose to start their nice yacht charter in the port, where I was lucky enough to be yesterday on the newly refitted IMPULSE which looks absolutely amazing! She is a fine example of a Sunseeker 28m with 2 double and 2 twin cabins, one of which is convertible…
