More Time to Book WILD THYME!

WILD TYHME is hands-down our favourite classic Benetti for charters on the French Riviera. Her owners are meticulous about her upkeep and she’s just back from a fresh hull re-paint, looking as pristine as she was when she first came out of the shipyard. We’ve just heard from her manager that due a surprising cancellation she’s now available between 29th July and 29th August out of Antibes.

Cannes Film Festival, Day 7 – Behind the Candelabra – Our Yacht Nominee: WILD THYME !

Behind-the-CandelabraDay 7 of the Cannes Film Festival features the highly anticipated standalone drama, Behind the Candelabra, by Steven Soderbergh, an Academy Award–winning film director, best known for directing critically acclaimed Hollywood films such as Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich and Traffic. It is based on Liberace’s autobiographical novel recounting the tempestuous 6-year homosexual relationship between him and his young lover, Scott Thorson. Liberace is masterfully played by the Hollywood veteran Michael Douglas, who paints a stark picture of celebrity loneliness in this dark comedy. Together with Matt Damon, who plays the young lover Scott Thorson, they are magnificent in portraying this beautiful but toxic relationship that moves from the highs of their first years together to miserable loneliness and Liberace’s death in 1987.WILD THYME
