The Monaco Yacht Show 2022

The highly anticipated Monaco Yacht Show is here! Held between the 28th September and 1st October, the exclusive event is where top manufacturers showcase the latest superyachts to clients and the industry.

Boatbookings visits the show each year to discover the newest designs, technologies, and yachting trends, and to personally view the top yachts and crews in the superyacht industry. We have selected the top 3 superyachts we are most excited to see this year, each one demonstrating the future of superyachts!

Built with long cruising distances in mind, the 80 Sunreef Power bridges the gap between ultimate comfort and seaworthiness. With its smooth and steady cruising, the 80 Sunreef Power glides through the water at 18 knots. Boasting expansive living spaces, perfect for sunning and relaxation, the 80 Sunreef Power is fully customisable and able to accommodate up to 12 guests.

A main feature of the yacht has to be the impressive master suite, spacious with a king bed, vast ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower. The light and modern interior compliments the luxury feel throughout the yacht, including the impeccably styled VIP suite and large double cabins. The large flybridge offers enough room for a spa pool and generous social spaces. The 80 Sunreef Power effortlessly delivers comfort and luxury.

Our team attends the Monaco Yacht Show every year and we always look forward to experiencing the newest innovations in the yachting market, and sharing our recommendations for your own luxury yacht charter.

Electric Yachts are coming – and Boatbookings is offering them for charter!

The Sunreef 60 Eco

The news is full of stories about the accelerating transition to electric vehicles, but until now, the boating/yachting world has been literally 100% mired in diesel-based propulsion (outside of wind, of course!). This is finally beginning to change! We’re seeing innovative developments in electric sailing yachts, catamarans, and motor yachts of all types. This is driven by advancements in battery technology, solar, and massive demand from buyers and charterers for yachts that are more ecologically sound.

The best electric yachts available for charter today!

The Greenline 58 Fly

Sunreef Yachts has announced an entire “Eco” range of catamarans (sail and power) that have solar panels embedded in the hull, top, and mast, Voyage Yachts offers the first fully electric charter catamaran in the Virgin Islands, the Voyage 480 Electric. New electric tenders and dinghies are being announced daily. And we’re even seeing large motor yachts that are going totally electric, such as the 58-foot Greenline yacht pictured above. Imagine cruising on a motor yacht with little or no engine vibrations!

Besides being better for the environment, electric boats are quieter, offer better acceleration, and are easier/cheaper to maintain. They are also less “stinky”. Virtually every marina is well-equipped with ample electric outlets, making charging infrastructure less of an issue than it is for cars. And many new yachts rarely need to be charged at all if there is ample sun – their solar panels charge the batteries instead.

We’ve compiled our worldwide knowledge on the advances in electric boating on our “Electric yacht and e-boat revolution” page, updated regularly to give you all you need to know in one place.

For charters, we have a listing of electric charter yachts that will help you find the right one for you. Yachts such as the Sunreef E Supercat. If you are interested in “green” chartering, please contact us and we will find the most ecologically conscious yacht and crew available that fits your needs. We’re looking forward to the day when yachting doesn’t involve diesel fumes, vibrating boats, loud generators, and oily waters in marinas!

7 Day Tahiti Crewed Catamaran Charter – Introduction & Overview

Our family of 5 recently enjoyed a 7-day Tahiti Yacht Charter on a 56-foot Lagoon 560 crewed catamaran. The entire trip was idyllic! In this series of blog posts, we will take you through the arrival, departure, itinerary, cuisine, crew, and lots of other observations to give you a clear picture of what it’s like to charter in Tahiti and the brilliance of being on a crewed catamaran.

Note, you can see this entire 7-day Tahiti Crewed Catamaran Itinerary here.

The Yacht

We chartered a Lagoon 560 crewed catamaran through Boatbookings. Lagoons are fantastic catamarans – they offer great open spaces both inside and out, and the cabins are roomy and comfortable. The 560 has a very large flydeck with seating for 8, where we spent a lot of time, especially at sunset, because you get a 360-degree view of the incredibly beautiful surroundings. We ate most of our meals on the spacious and comfortable aft deck, because it is never windy and offers easy access to the galley.

The crew had their own quarters so that each of our children could have their own cabin and bathroom, what a luxury! See the layout below.

The main salon is large, well lit and comfortable, although we honestly never spent one minute in it – there was too much to do outside!

The boat had 2 paddleboards, 2 kayaks, and plenty of snorkeling gear. We used them every day!

The Crew

We had a fantastic crew who took care of all of our needs, set the daily itinerary, and produced world-class cuisine (a mixture of french and Tahitian cooking) three meals a day.

Jerome was our captain – he is French and has lived in the Tahitian Islands for 20 years. He knows where the best snorkeling spots are and always moored the boat in quiet, beautiful anchorages so that we had amazing views and sunsets!

Clara served three fantastic meals a day, plus sundowner drinks and hors d’oeurvres so we could fully enjoy the sunsets. She cooked meals to meet our dietary specifications – Tahitian food is, of course, centered around amazing fresh fish, but one of our party didn’t eat fish so she always had a great substitute.
