The Ionian Islands Are More Than But A Dream!

The Ionian islands continue to be one of the most popular charter destinations each summer, and if you haven’t visited yet, they are well worth a trip.  The Ionian is a group of islands which run from the bottom of the Adriatic to the Peloponnese and are among the greenest in Greece, studded with olive groves.  Made up of twelve small and large islands, Zakynthos, Ithaca, Corfu (Kerkyra), Kefalonia, Lefkada, and Paxi are the large Ionian Islands. The smaller islands include Antipaxi, Erikousa, Mathraki, Othoni, Meganisi and the deserted islets of Strofades south of Zakynthos. With its mild winds, crystal clear waters and predictable weather patterns, the Ionian offers excellent and safe sailing conditions.

ECSTASEA. The Ultimate Yacht to Match Monaco’s Ultimate Apartment

Monaco is the ultimate millionaire’s playground. A place where you can lose 1 million euros in the casino before driving away in your custom Ferrari and nobody will bat an eyelid. In terms of glamour and wealth, Monaco is pretty much unrivalled. This is underlined by the unveiling of the world’s most expensive apartment. For an estimated £240 million, you could own the top 5 stories of the brand new Odeon Tower. article-2729501-20A63F4C00000578-477_634x475 Square footage doesn’t come cheap in Monaco, with most apartments being very much on the small side. The super-sized flats in the Odeon Tower are therefore a diamond dozen in the Principality. Although you will have to wait until 2015 before you can move in, the wait just might be worth it when you slide out of your bedroom and into your pool 560ft above the ground.

Of course you will need the perfect yacht to go with your perfect apartment. Shortly ECSTASEA will even have a slide to match. This is by no means the only highlight however. ECSTASEA is 85m of pure extravagance and luxury and she is available to charter for the Monaco Yacht Show.

On board, the attention to detail is astonishing, particularly given her size. She is decorated with an African tribal theme throughout providing a magnificent mix of down to earth simplicity and indulgent comfort.

Above deck you’ll find plenty of space to spread out and work on your tan and when the time comes to cool off, slide into the sea before zooming around on a jet ski or bouncing around on one of the small armada of water toys.

ECSTASEA really is the pinnacle of luxury. There is even a helicopter hangar, since leaving your helicopter on deck is obviously far too gauche. To charter ECSTASEA, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with the Boatbookings team.

Chartering with the Stars in Ibiza

The mid-summer parties in Ibiza are in full swing and it would seem that anyone who is anyone has upped sticks and set up camp in the Balearic Islands. Word has clearly got out that the best way to enjoy this slice of heaven off the coast of Spain is on a yacht. Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh has been spotted on the aft deck sunbathing topless and Neymar has decided that the best way to recover from a broken back is to kick back on the stunning PETARDO C.

There’s something for all you Justin Bieber fans as well. Considering Orlando Bloom’s popularity rating’s are now sky high having punched the Canadian singer, it would appear there aren’t many of you, but alas, it seems like there are still a couple of people willing to put up with him. He’s been seen off the coast of Formentera, trying out the latest and most exciting water toy, the flyboard while aboard ECSTASEA, the 86m feadship, designed and formerly owned by Russian oligarch, Roman Abramovich.

Bieber is about as good on the flyboard as he is in a boxing match, however the same cannot be said of his guest, Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez who, when not cosied up next to her latest fling, Zac Efron, proves to be a comparative pro on the jet powered water toy.
