This week is our Cannes Film Festival special, with some of the greatest charter yachts in the world gracing the bay and port of Cannes with their presence, it’s a spectacle on the water as much as inside the Palais des Festivals. In the port you’ll see the seasoned event yachts with their experienced crews working away to cater to the discerning taste of the film industry’s youngest and brightest, and one yacht in particular has caught our eye. HARLE is a 45-metre Feadship, built to the highest standard in 2007. She offers space for 12 guests to sleep, as well as excellent open social areas both inside and out.
This week we’re taking a look at what is arguably the most successful charter yacht on the planet, with a full calendar in every corner of the globe LADY BRITT has everything you could wish for. Launched by the prestigious Feadship yard in 2012, LADY BRITT has had acclaim the world over for her timeless design incorporating clean, fluid lines and minimal approach. Since then her crew have carried the baton of her outstanding reputation to new heights with an award-winning Michelin-starred chef and pro-active captain and team who attract a huge number of repeat guests whether in the glamorous South of France or the breathtaking Bahamas.
If you love your food, NAJADE is the yacht for you! Chef Christophe Fischbach uses the finest ingredients and naturally grown regional products to create wonderful meals heavily influenced by his travels worldwide. Boatbookings charter broker Cordelia recently visited this yacht for lunch and was treated to the incredible menu below:
The stunning Feadship NAJADE was launched in 1965 and has been meticulously maintained, making her look like she was launched just yesterday.

A multitude of watertoys including kayaks, paddleboards, waterskis and donut will keep you entertained for hours.

Yesterday saw the closing of the Palm Beach International Boat Show 2014, another great year according to our Charter Director Allison Cecilio in Fort Lauderdale. The show featured favourites winning over others with their fantastic crews and inventive chefs, along with some very welcome newcomers to the US charter market. As the show drew to a close Allison has reflected on her top recommendations for winter in Florida and the Bahamas, and summer sun in New England.
Allison’s first favourite was a popular choice with all the brokers at the show. DA BUBBA is 100′ Hargrave yacht, with elegant and stylish interior combined with extensive water sports list to truly mix relaxation and thrill-seeking. Allison highly recommends this yacht already due to her sterling crew and the fact she’s still offering free delivery to a location of your choice in the Bahamas for Spring Break charters!
Previous guests have left flawless reviews and commended their crew on their keen eye for safety and fun, perfect for family groups. An impressive buffet showcasing vegan options, including curried pumpkin bisque and vegetable spring rolls with ponzu dip, really highlighted the talent of the chef onboard for Allison.
Allison’s next favourite was the much anticipated return of GRAVITAS. The 52 metre Feadship has undergone an extensive re-fit with her new owners and is in pristine “as-new” condition inside and out, whilst still offering the trusted quality of a classic Feadship build. The crew are already well-known and are led by the reputable force of Roy and Stephanie Hodges who have a rich and full charter history and exemplary feedback from guests throughout their career. GRAVITAS will spend April in the Bahamas before heading towards to New England for the summer holidays.
