While at the Antigua Charter Show we got the chance to visit the 193′ Luxury Expedition Yacht SEAWOLF which was originally built as an ocean going tugboat. The Expedition style yachts have always intrigued us as brokers and she has to be one of finest available for charter.
At Boatbookings we’re huge fans of Nobiskrug yachts, as you’ll see from our previous post on the beautiful MOGAMBO we love their sporty lines, the stand-out grey hulls and the huge amount of light that floods their interiors. A winner for us this week is SIREN, a favourite of Brokers Allison and Ben at this year’s Antigua Yacht Show. Ben said that SIREN was “streets ahead of the competition,” and we can really see why.
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.
In just a little over 3 weeks Ben and Allison from the Boatbookings team will be heading to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, from December 5-11, which showcases the world’s finest charter yachts. With 98 yachts already registered this will be a very rewarding and exciting and important show for us. We look forward to reporting back to everyone after viewing all of these magnificent yachts and meeting the crews.
This week we’re turning our hands to sailing once again, and we strongly recommend that if you haven’t booked your luxury vacation for Christmas and New Year you should consider KOKOMO! Our super yacht of the week is the 2010 58.4 metre creation from the esteemed Alloy Yachts shipyard in New Zealand. Alloy guarantee excellence in both design and engineering, with a promise to deliver the vision of the designer and also to push the boundaries of what can be done. KOKOMO shows this by keeping sporty pedigree, beautiful lines, extensive exterior space as well as a timeless and elegant interior.
