Start of the Mediterranean Charter Summer – Impressions
Ready for charter: The super yachts start in this year’s Mediterranean season. In spring numerous impressive motor and sailing yachts were shown in the OneOcean Marina, new super yacht marina in Port Vell in Barcelona, first time the location for the most important show of luxury charter yachts in the Western Mediterranean.
The luxury yachts shown which will be cruising this summer mainly in the Western Mediterranean and the Balearic Islands, ranged from the 95-meter long mega yacht INDIAN EMPRESS with a crew of 33 people to the 30-meter-long sailing yacht CENTURION on which 3 crewmembers care for the well-being of their guests.
Huge flybridges and private balconies, infinity pools and jacuzzis, classy beachclubs, elaborate gyms, the latest water toys, well-kept board bars, carefully designed table decorations, noble woods and marble of all colors … the charter guests are offered everything that they can wish for. And from classic to supermodern, there is the perfect yacht for every taste.
Impressive, of course, the mega yachts – besides the INDIAN EMPRESS, the 72 m long AXIOMA (with huge atrium salon) and the 67 m ICON with their large pools were particularly noticeable. Very pleasant crew, summer mood by cheerful turquoise colours to set highlights, bright woods, a Canadian chef who likes cooking while the music rocks – on board of 60 m long RAMBLE ON ROSE you feel immediately relaxed holiday spirit.. Like some of the other yachts, it is recognized as a RYA Training Center: the guests can learn how to ride jet ski and more … The 50m ELENI, with Italian chic, elegant interiors with dark woods, bright ceiling panels and huge bulleye windows, offers everything the heart desires – as well as NASSIMA, with a large gym on the main deck. With 38 m length, the brand new Sanlorenzo yacht TAKARA (Japanese for “treasure”) is only a little smaller but offers a lot of chic and comfort – it is new in the charter market in the Balearic Islands and has its home base in Palma.
More the classic traditional style: 29m Benetti HARMONYA with bright interiors in New England style, also available in the Balearic Islands, as well as MENORCA with a large roof terrace, based on the island of the same name, or SEMAYA – an extremely popular charter yacht in Ibiza: From the outside it looks classic, from the inside stylish – with many exciting details, plenty of space and all water toys including the anti-jellyfish pool.
