A Guide to Chartering a Luxury Yacht on the French Riviera Part IV

Saint-Raphaël.

This is another town on the Côte d’Azur to have been visited by Napoleon Bonaparte. The harbour marks the spot where he returned victorious from Egypt, but also left 15 years later when exiled to Elba. The port was used to support the fishing industry and ship goods, yet the town has grown to become popular with tourists, who both want to visit the beautiful town and start their sailing holiday here.

David Beckham’s Speedboat Fails to Sell at Auction

The Bladerunner RIB 35 used by David Beckham to enter into the London Screen-Shot-2012-12-11-at-10.25.572012 Olympic Games carrying the Torch, has failed to reach its reserve at auction, we can confirm. The vessel was expected to fetch somewhere around £250,000 at auction, something which did not, unfortunately, take place.

The Bladerunner was used by David Beckham, soccer player of LA Galaxy and advocate to London 2012, to carry the torch down the River Thames and under Tower Bridge, on its journey from London City Hall. The RIB was manufactured by Hampshire based Ice Marine.

The bidding of the vessel, for such Olympic paraphernalia, was expected to reach £250,000 (around $400,000) at auction, but that price only managed to reach around £180,000.

Spokesman Julian Roub said, “It was a very busy sale but the item was fairly highly priced and there was insufficient interest on the day.

“It may sell in a post-sale deal.”

If you’re looking to charter something similar, why not go for the fantastic Wally Tender 45, a great motor boat for day charters out of St Tropez and Cogolin. She is sleek and powerful with two 320 CV engines. She charters for between €2,200 and €2,500 per day.
