AUSTRALIS – a Boatbookings favourite from Monaco Yacht Show

Many boats stood out this year as a charterer’s dream, but our visit to AUSTRALIS was one that stood out from the crowd. Resting at anchor outside Port Hercule, she looked at home among even the largest of super yachts. This Oceanfast 48 was originally released in 2010, and following a thorough contemporary re-fit in January she was introduced to the Mediterranean charter market in Summer 2013. She’ll be spending this winter in SE Asia and will be available for charter in the Maldives and Thailand. AUSTRALIS1AUSTRALIS2

The re-fit has provided the boat with a wonderfully warm and inviting interior, with a comfortable but contemporary edge. She also has a whole new inventory of equipment, toys, linens and water-sports. Her all-new crew, including experienced and relaxed British captain Mark provide the perfect charter boat for families looking to relax whilst remaining active! The British chef lived and worked in Italy for 10 years meaning she provides authentic Mediterranean cuisine but can cater for all tastes. Perfect for winter charters in SE Asia and next summer in Mediterranean. AUSTRALIS3A4Contact us for more information.

Maldives_Surfing_1The magnificent turquoise blues of the Indian Ocean produce a varying degree of wave formations; including long rolling barrels, pipelines and ankle snappers. The Maldives archipelago is divided into three different surf areas: South Atolls, Central Atolls and the Male Atolls. The primary difference between these Atolls is the consistency, swell size and the level of popularity.

The Maldives experience a similar surf season to that of Indonesia, receiving inviting swells in March until April and from June to November. The best time to experience surfing in the Maldives is during the dry season, from March until April when there is a generally consistent surf of up to 12ft. The biggest swells are likely to occur during June, July and August so make sure to arrive before May if you are after clean waves and glorious weather.

Chartering a Luxury Azimut Yacht!

Azimut’s  are some of the most eye catching and visually stunning yachts available to buy or charter. It would be incorrect however to think that an Azimut is just an aesthetically pleasing yacht, as the levels of technology, build quality, comfort and safety features would match any other leading yachting marque. The true brilliance of the Azimut motor yacht is its ability to never look old. The philosophy behind the brand is to produce the highest quality product possible, with the help of skilled tradesmen, technology and the very best core components.

One of the largest Azimut’s available for charter is the stunning SULTANS WAY 007, available for charter in the Maldives.
