Super Yacht of the Week: ST DAVID

With the French Riviera breathing a short breath of relief following the busiest week of its calendar, we are looking towards the summer season which is just a short time away. ST DAVID is our super yacht of the week, and we were lucky enough to sample some of the fantastic amenities and service available onboard last night in Cannes. The 60m Benetti was built in 2008 as XANADU, having been re-fitted and renamed in 2010 she is in pristine condition for charter.

One of the highlights this year will be OCEAN PARADISE – a 55m Benetti sleeping up to 12 guests in 6 elegant cabins.

Italian Style in Naples this July onboard GIORGIA!

Here at Boatbookings.com, we love the fantastic space Benetti Classic yachts provide. Their three deck layout provides expansive dining, sunbathing and just bathing space in their private fly-deck jacuzzis. GIORGIA is no exception, and on a recent visit Charles and Cordy from the Boatbookings team in the South of France were bowled over by the yacht and her crew. Her home berth is in Antibes but this July we can offer you the chance to charter GIORGIA in Naples, gateway to the gorgeous Amalfi Coast and the gorgeously stylish emerald green island of Capri.
