The Boatbookings Team have just returned from another successful Antigua Charter Yacht Show, where they viewed over 50 of the very best crewed yachts for your next vacation. Whether you are looking to explore the tranquil turquoise waters of the Caribbean, majestic landscapes of the Mediterranean or remote islands in the South Pacific, we know the very best yachts to take you there.
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.
Given a brief to create a state-of-the-art, world class and spacious super yacht you can only imagine how delighted the Picchiotti shipyard were to build the truly gorgeous 73-metre GRACE E. Part of the esteemed Perini Navi Group, Picchiotti are one of very few yards that could offer both the reputation a build of this prestige required as well as a forward-thinking vision to create a super yacht to reset the world-class benchmark. GRACE E offers technological advancement never seen before as well as beautifully elegant space planning, relaxing interior, wellness deck, state-of-the-art tenders and toys and even an exercise pool. She is the pinnacle of what a super yacht can offer in terms of your vacation experience.
