7-Day Luxury Charter Yacht Itinerary in the Dazzling and Dramatic French Riviera

Nice waterfront

The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur, is internationally famous as one of the most prestigious yachting destinations in the world. Experienced charter guests know that nothing in the world can compare to the breathtaking scenery and splendid shore excursions that comprise a luxury yacht charter through the French Riviera. From the beaches and clubs of St. Tropez to the Festivals and famous Croisette promenade of Cannes, to the Le Grand Casino and Luxury Yachts of Monaco, the French Riviera beckons with infinite allure.

Day 1: Nice

Arrive at the Nice Cote d’Azur airport, transfer to your crewed charter yacht to settle in and refresh before an evening of exploration on shore. Nice is the second most popular tourist destination after Paris and the largest city in the French Riviera. The town changed hands many times, contributing to an architecturally and culturally rich heritage. Its strategic location and port gave the town great maritime strength throughout its history and today provides superb facilities for many magnificent megayachts.

Day 2: Saint-Tropez

St Tropez

This über chic town is well known today for its famous celebrities and extremely wealthy summertime guests. The playground of jet-setters, fashion models, and millionaires, it is renowned as the city where the iconic Bridgitte Bardot was discovered. Saint Tropez is considered a world capital of yachting and in the crowded harbor storied yachts are docked side by side throughout the summer season.

 

The trendy town is more than glorious sandy beaches and

The Old Port St. Tropez

magnificent boats. Down historic cobbled streets, concealed by rows of cafes and gift shops, are the boutiques of some of the world’s greatest fashion designers. In the history of modern art Saint-Tropez also plays a major role, as the location where Pointillism and Fauvism emerged, Saint-Tropez has served as inspiration to legendary painters as well as fine artists of today.

Each September yachting enthusiasts anticipate Les Voiles de St. Tropez, a world-famous regatta held at the end of the month. All types of sailing boats, from traditional to modern, compete with each other in this very popular, international event.

Antibes

Day 3: Antibes, Juan les Pins

Located between Cannes and Nice, there are no less than 48 beaches along the 25 km of coastline that surround Antibes and Juan les Pins. For knowledge seekers, there are five museums, including the Absinthe Museum dedicated to appreciation of this infamous liqueur. Pablo Picasso spent six months here visiting a friend in 1946 and donated several works to the municipality, which are now housed in the Picasso Museum located in the restored Chateau Grimaldi.

 

Antibes Port

Antibes offers some excellent shopping in trendy boutiques, and in the old town a number of galleries with art for sale include paintings of local scenes. Close to the harbor is a covered market that offers a magnificent selection of meat, fish, cheese and vegetables. Gourmet restaurants feature French cuisine as well as local specials focusing on fresh seafood and produce from Provence. The Absinthe Bar La Balade provides a unique experience for those who dare to try this mysterious green liqueur, illegal in most places for its reputation to cause insanity.

In April, the annual Antibes Yacht Show is dedicated to the

Cannes Port Rotonde

brokerage and charter of larger yachts and in June, the Voiles d’Antibes is one of the world’s biggest gatherings of old teak and brass sailing vessels that converge on the port for one of the most regal regattas in the Mediterranean.

Day 4: Cannes

Enchanting nineteenth-century Cannes lives on in the splendid grand villas still inhabited to the present day. Built to reflect the wealth and standing of their owners, these architectural wonders were inspired by anything and everything, from medieval castles to Roman villas. In addition to palatial architecture, Cannes is famous for its luxury shops, restaurants and posh hotels. The city hosts the annual Cannes Film Festival, MIDEM, the foremost trade show for the music industry, MIPIM, the worlds largest property-related trade show, and MIPCOM and MIPTV, held in October and April respectively, the world’s most important trade markets for the television industry. In September, the Festival de la Plaisance is a popular event for yachting enthusiasts and is held in both the Vieux Port and the Port Pierre Canto. The prestigious show brings together key players in pleasure boating and international luxury yachting.

Villefranche Port

Day 5: Villefranche

Villefranche-sur-Mer adjoins the city of Nice to the east along Mont Boron, Mont Alban and Mont Vinaigrier, and lies about 6 miles south west of Monaco. The bay of Villefranche is one of the deepest natural harbors of any port in the Mediterranean Sea providing superb anchorage for megayachts. The historic port was created in 1295 by Charles d’Anjou.

 

Popular with writers such as Katherine Mansfield and Aldous Huxley, Villefranche continues as a haven for creative artists who occupy quaint little houses reached by narrow alleyways that climb the hillside. Two of the more recent celebrities who have bought villas in the area are Tina Turner and Bono.

This picturesque medieval setting of red tile roofs and narrow cobblestone streets has also been the backdrop to many movies including; Captain Horatio Hornblower, Adventures of Captain Fabian, To Catch a Thief , The Count of Monte Cristo, An Affair to Remember, The Madwoman of Chaillot, Never Say Never Again, The Jewel of the

Monaco

Nile, The Bourne Identity, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and countless video clips and commercials.

Day 6: Monaco

The Principality of Monaco is a sovereign city state bordered by France on three sides and by the Mediterranean Sea. In 2011, Monaco maintained its status as the world’s most expensive real estate market, at $56,300 per square meter, with the highest rate of millionaires and billionaires per capita.

The architecture of the glamorous Belle Èpoque building and

Monte Carlo Casino

gardens of the Monte Carlo Casino have provided an inspired setting for several James Bond films and should not to be missed by visitors to the city. The beaux arts building was designed by the architect Charles Garnier, who also created the Paris Opera House.

Since 1911, Monaco has attracted crowds of spectators to the Monte Carlo Rally, and since 1955 to the Monte Carlo Grand Prix. The Monte Carlo Rally was originally held at the behest of Prince Albert I and is, like the principality’s Grand Prix, organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco. It has long been considered to be one of the toughest and most highly regarded events in rallying. The Formula One Monaco Grand Prix is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world. Magnificent charter superyachts are available for both of these events and provide a superlative platform for spectators.

Day 7: Nice

Depart Monaco for a leisurely return trip to Nice. Visit the old town before transferring back to the Airport, or extend your trip by a day to further explore the town and environs. For visitors interested in archeology and history, one of the oldest human settlements in the

Nice at Night

world, Terra-Amata, is situated near Nice and dates from the Lower Paleolithic period. From the 2nd century AD, the splendor of Nice has attracted many famous painters and sculptors including Chagall and Matisse, and inspired many composers and intellectuals such as Berloz, Rossini and Nietzche. Spend a few hours at one or two the varied and numerous museums of all kinds, including a Naval Museum. Being a vacation resort town, Nice hosts many festivals throughout the year, so check to see what special events might be taking place during your stay.

Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, April 19-24, Marvelous Yacht Charter Destination for Racers and Spectators Alike

The Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, April 19-24, is one of the worlds premier classic yachting events that brings a fantastic collection of boats and people together in the ideal sailing conditions of the [Caribbean](Location:26). For yacht charter clients, the event provides a unique opportunity to crew on a racing yacht, or luxuriate on a spectator yacht in the midst of all the action.

The race originated back in the 60’s, when classic yachts, gathered in English Harbor Antigua, first began to do charters and the captains and crews challenged each other to a race down to Guadeloupe and back to celebrate the end of the charter season.

By 1987, new yachts largely replaced classic yacht competitors in the Regatta. However, participation was revitalized in 1991 when Elizabeth Meyer brought her newly refitted Endeavour, and Baron Edmond Rothschild brought his 6-meter “Spirit of St Kitts”, and the sponsored Concours d’ Elegance was inaugurated. After a few years, Boat International Magazine took over sponsorship of the Concours d’ Elegance publishing features that brought worldwide recognition to the event. In 1996 the “Spirit of Tradition Class” was introduced, giving new yachts built along classic lines the chance to sail with their original sisterships.

Today the event attracts between 50 and 60 yachts including traditional island craft, classic ketches, sloops, schooners, and yawls, along with the spectacular Spirit of Tradition yachts, J Class yachts, and Tall Ships, resulting in a sensational spectacle of sail, in the ideal trade wind sailing conditions of the Caribbean.

Antigua is a very popular yacht charter destination for the magnificent sailing, legendary Antiguan hospitality, plenty of rum, sunshine, and great camaraderie, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. All of this places the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in a destination class of it’s own.

Sunreef Yachts Charter has a wide range of charter yachts based in Antigua, in the Caribbean Leewards. Please contact a Sunreef Yachts Charter expert for detailed information, rates and availability.

Oceanco’s 205 LADY LOLA: Regal, Refined, Romantic

Sunreef Yachts Charter experts went on board the eminently refined Grande Dame of megayachts, LADY LOLA, while she was poised in Fort Lauderdale for a brief respite before heading to the Bahamas. The tale of this much loved yacht begins with the build in 2002, contracted by Duane and Lola Hagadone, at the Dutch shipyard Oceanco. Conceived as a long range, highly private superyacht, award-winning LADY LOLA features naval architecture and exterior design by Oceanco and interiors by François Zuretti.

The abbreviated story of LADY LOLA is that she was sold by the Hagadones for a fine price in the middle of the decade, fortuitously prior to the tanking economy. She was on the market only a matter of days when a determined new Owner purchased the beloved yacht without a moment’s hesitation or negotiation.

Perhaps it was a small miracle, or an odd stroke of fate, that saw LADY LOLA up for sale for only the second time at the Monaco Boat Show in 2011. It just so happened that Mr. and Mrs. Hagadone were attending an important yet unrelated meeting in the same city. Surprised and delighted at the serendipitous timing of the show, they reviewed the beautiful megayachts lining the docks, and decided it was time to get back on board. But none could quite compare with LADY LOLA. And then they saw her majestically before them, and knew without hesitation, that this was destined to be a perfect family reunion.

To see additional photographs please visit Sunreef Yachts Charter Facebook album of LADY LOLA.

LADY LOLA is available for charter in the Caribbean Islands and Mediterranean ports of call. She is not available for charter to US residents while in US waters.

Please contact Sunreef Yachts Charter professionals for details.

Sunreef Charter Experts Aboard Johnson 103′ Luxury Charter Yacht DIAMOND GIRL: Polished, Poised, Perfection

DIAMOND GIRL, open for viewing at the 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show, is a very popular charter yacht that repeatedly delights the most discriminating clients. DIAMOND GIRL is supremely elegant yet with a lighthearted disposition and Sunreef Yachts Charter experts were eager to get on board, talk with the crew, and take an intimate look at what makes this a truly dazzling superyacht.

Stepping off the sunny dock up onto the cool shaded aft deck we could easily appreciate the arrangement for al fresco dining on this luxury charter yacht. Here, padded banquette seating strewn with plush throw pillows opposite a row of comfortable, high backed lounge chairs encircles a table easily large enough to accommodate the entire charter party.

Entering the salon aboard DIAMOND GIRL, luminous interiors manifest a feminine, sensual, curvaceousness. The convex curve of the cabinetry perfectly compliments the concave sway of the sofa. In an innovative architectural arrangement the lovely bar, with a backdrop of finely etched glass panels, occupies the center forward position customarily used as a dining area. Dining table and chairs are instead positioned off the starboard side for sweeping side and aft deck views.

Graceful interiors aboard DIAMOND GIRL shimmer and flow as languidly as a summer swell. An artistic use of aquamarine glass bands the perimeter of the ceiling and tops cabinet surfaces, not just in the main salon, but as both a functional and decorative motif throughout the yacht. Ocean waters reflected on the glass, positioned above panoramic windows, create a magical play of light and motion that is mesmerizing.

DIAMOND GIRL features a sumptuous master suite with sweeping forward views through a semicircular swath of picture windows. A few steps lead to the lower level, very private and posh, dual facilities. As in the master, the VIP stateroom is outfitted with a king bed, and both guest suites have queens, making this stylish charter yacht an ideal option for couples chartering together.

Decorating the walls on board DIAMOND GIRL, a diverse collection of artwork includes some outstanding oil paintings by the Owner’s sister in law, Irena Boone, of the very highly rated Boone and Sons Jewelers. Her masterful artwork employs dynamic brushstrokes and a bold color palette to express the beauty and sensuality of the tropics.

While on board DIAMOND GIRL we spoke with the Mate, Jeff and Stew, Bethany. Jeff is eagerly anticipating an exciting summer chartering in the Caribbean and Bahamas, waters with which he is intimately familiar. With a brand new towable tender and plenty of gear the yacht is fully set up for snorkeling and fishing. Jeff knows some excellent spots and Captain Tim is equally knowledgeable, both benefitting from many years of yacht charter experience.

Jeff and Bethany

Bethany, the Stewardess, enjoys snorkeling and fishing too, but is a big fan of all types of water toys. She says that growing up on a lake she had every kind of water toy imaginable. DIAMOND GIRL has plenty of toys on board, including two Bladefish circular underwater sea scooters, and Jeff and Bethany are happy to provide instruction as needed.

DIAMOND GIRL is a very impressive yacht, aesthetically and mechanically. Equipped with twin MTU 16V2000 engines, DIAMOND GIRL cruises at a speedy 19 knots, with a maximum of speed of 24 knots, making her an ideal charter yacht for island hopping in the Bahamas or the Caribbean. The highly skilled crew are charming, professional, and like DIAMOND GIRL, are endowed with a lighthearted sense of playfulness and an endearing sense of humor. Charter DIAMOND GIRL and experience timeless beauty, absolute sophistication and sheer pleasure.

Although it is difficult to estimate exactly how lucrative the show will ultimately prove to be, many sales brokers claim pending sales and the rumor mill is hinting about the sale of

one megayacht considered to be a real gem. Serious charter inquiries from qualified clients, including well known celebrities spotted on the docks, indicate that the future of the marine industry looks very bright indeed.

Sunreef On Board Benetti Yachts 200′ Bejeweled Masterpiece, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, Owner John Staluppi’s latest, most technologically advanced and extravagantly decorated megayacht, was the must-see build for everyone attending the 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is an outstanding collaboration between John Staluppi, Benetti Yachts, and Evan K. Marshall. Her elegant aesthetics are a stunning interpretation of the exclusivity of luxury yachting, defined by graceful shapes, dynamic lines and a powerful presence.

The in-house technical department of Azimut-Benetti, responsible for naval architecture and engineering, used high-resistance steel for the hull and light weight aluminum alloy for the superstructure. The displacement hull features a bulbous bow and a longitudinal skeg running from amidships to the stern, facilitating the 200-foot yacht’s ability to travel at a remarkable maximum speed of 16 knots, with an oceanic range of 4,800 nautical miles at 12 knots.

The concept design and exterior styling of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER was entrusted to Benetti FB Line’s brilliant Stefano Natucci, who imbued the vessel with the instantly recognizable modern classicism that is a trademark of Benetti motor yachts. Innovative features of this quad-deck design include a VIP master stateroom and an Owners’ master stateroom. The unusual fly bridge, located above the sun deck, creates a spectacular panoramic private Owner’s deck that can accommodate helicopter landings and takeoffs, and can only be reached via controlled access from the main staircase and the central elevator.

The interior design and decoration of DIAMONDS

Designer Evan Marshall

ARE FOREVER are the work of the extraordinarily talented Evan K. Marshall of Usonia V, responsible for the interiors of previous Staluppi superyachts including THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH. Marshall designed sumptuous interiors, including all loose furniture, for comfort and visual impact. Furnishings throughout that epitomize luxury and refinement are embedded with thousands of Swarovski crystals that successfully mimic glittering, prismatic diamonds.

Shimmering foyers on each deck house the central spiral staircase that winds around the cylindrical glass elevator. Each foyer sparkles with reflective glass, thematic works of art, striking combinations of marble and onyx floor inlays, and burl wall panels framed by gold and silver leaf inlays.

The main deck layout includes living and dining areas and the VIP apartment. On this and all deck levels, social spaces incorporate elegant pieces of loose furniture and commissioned works of art with design motifs inspired by the ship’s name. The furniture appears to be freestanding, supported only by slender legs embedded with delicate Swarovski crystals set in polished chrome and gold-plate. The VIP master suite features a split-level layout with large panoramic forward facing windows, his and hers walk-in dressing rooms, an exercise room with adjoining sauna and a beauty salon with massage table. These spaces are self contained and can be separated from the stateroom for use by other guests.

The lower deck layout includes one twin stateroom and three king-size staterooms, two of which have walk-in wardrobes. The materials for the staterooms include elegant Madrona burl woods, gold and silver leaf inlays, rare marbles and onyx, and custom colored and embossed leathers. Notable features include lavish ensuite facilities, commissioned works of art representing Neoclassical, Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods, faux stingray skin walls and trim, and silent air conditioning cleverly ventilated through crown molding.

On the upper deck of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is the spectacular sky lounge, featuring a unique automated indoor-outdoor dining area. With the flick of a switch electric doors convert the indoor space by opening the area to the aft cockpit, instantly creating an outdoor dining area. The full beam living area boasts a welcoming low bar, plush seating arrangement, a grand piano, game table and four televisions, (we are told Staluppi is a serious Nascar fan) that are concealed by original paintings embedded with Swarovski crystals. In each of the niched corners are four original sculptures inspired by the famous Quattro Fontane in Rome, that reveal John Staluppi’s passion for the sculptures of the artist Erté, renowned as a great master of Art Nouveau and Art Déco. They are reputed to be a very limited edition from the artist’s America Series quartet entitled “Liberty”, “Fearless and Free”, “Peace” and “Justice”, and produced using a bronze alloy casting technique.

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is superb luxury yacht that meets the most demanding charter requirements; palatial amounts of space, the very best materials and technology, the highest levels of service, and the utmost privacy and security. She will be available for charter through the Mediterranean this spring.
