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.

Sunreef Experts On Board MI SUENO: 190′ Trinity Luxury Charter Yacht Is Proof That Dreams Do Come True

Claire, the poised and charming Second Stewardess, recently escorted Sunreef Yachts Charter experts on a tour of elegant superyacht MI SUENO, a magnificent 190’ Trinity that launched in 2010. Claire, was so very gracious as to carry my purse for me, which I generally stash in a corner, in

Claire, up top with bag still in tow

order to be free to take photographs. It is an example of the flawless level of service to be found on board MI SUENO by her highly professional, dedicated and endearing crew.

The entrance through the foyer from the main aft deck is flanked by very large capacity, very well stocked, temperature controlled wine refrigerators. Row upon row of wines and champagnes stored here include the MI SUENO label of red and white wines from the namesake vineyard in Napa Valley, California. The inspirational rags to riches story of the Owner gives clarity to a double entendre, his personal dream serves as a true testament to the American dream.

Alice in Wonderland Head

MI SUENO features styling and engineering by the Trinity team and yacht designer Patrick Knowles has applied his extraordinary visual ability to interiors. His soothing and contemporary color palette pivots around tones of earth and sea. The furniture arrangement in the main salon creates a congenial area conducive to conversation. The sophisticated elegance of the formal dining room is enhanced by the original work of modern art that spans one wall. This undulating painting, along with panoramic views on port and starboard sides, intensifies the sensation of being afloat.

We continue forward toward the master compartment, pausing to admire the day head Claire fondly calls the “Alice in Wonderland” bathroom. The master suite includes a full size, walk-in wardrobe and, in a somewhat unusual layout, separate his and hers facilities on opposite sides of the hall. Hers includes a spacious Jacuzzi tub with a view.

The living space is arranged behind and below the forward facing bed. A plush sofa to starboard is positioned for reclining opposite a flat screen, pop up TV and to port is a fridge with a mini bar. This self contained compartment is a privacy option that makes MI SUENO ideal for romantic charters. Claire described laying rose petals across the bed and all the way down the corridor to the delight of a couple that chartered for an amorous weekend.

Guests on board MI SUENO are accommodated in four luxurious king bed suites including a palatial VIP. There are also one queen and one twin with Pullman cleverly concealed behind artwork, which is the best option for children that always dislike sharing a bed with their siblings.

The skylounge bar is covered in striking variegated tiger marble that receives many

compliments. These rich, warm tones of brown and gold are integrated throughout the salon furnishings. The protected aft deck is where guests prefer to dine, it is fully air conditioned and features a flip down television that rotates 360 degrees. Today guests are treated to a jazz duo and an irresistable array of finger foods that include lobster mango salad and Kobe beef sliders. Chef Robert Mitchell, with restaurant experience that includes head chef at Gautreau’s in New Orleans, impressed everyone with his creative cuisine.

High up on the spectacular sundeck guests can enjoy a variety of activities including the practice launch of biodegradable golf balls from a patch of astro turf into the sea. This deck level is also the stage for “tiki parties” that include water balloon fights in which everyone dons pirate costumes and the crew of 14 challenges the guests to battle. The elliptical trainer and other workout equipment is housed on this level, as well as the Jacuzzi, splash pool, and forward facing bar with magnificent views.

MI SUENO is perfectly equipped to make charter guests’ dream a charter a reality.

Our Charter Experts Onboard 141′ Italyachts MAKIRA: Perfect Island Cruising with Top Speed and Shallow Draft

Italyachts 141′ MAKIRA, with a draft of less than 5 feet, is the perfect luxury charter yacht for exploring the shallow waters of islands such as Makira in the Solomon Island chain. At a cruising speed of 30 knots, the yacht flies over the waves, like the Makira Thrush, Makira Leaf Warbler and Makira Moorhen. Luxury yacht MAKIRA is sleek, fast, sophisticated, fun and in many ways incomparable.

Our Charter experts had the opportunity to tour MAKIRA , speak with the crew and sample the chef’s gourmet finger foods while the yacht was on display at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show. We began our visit on the aft deck, ideally designed for  the entire charter party to relax, enjoy the view and dine al fresco.

French Chef Willy Pastel excels at preparing sophisticated gourmet meals that range from the exotic to the traditional. His background at hotels such as the Plaza Athénée in Paris, and on charter yachts worldwide, has provided him the opportunity to discover and master many cuisines including: French, Italian, Asian, Russian and Creole.

Chef Willy

The formal dining room forward of the main salon has doorways both port and starboard leading to the helm that can be closed to create a more private space. When these doors are open, along with a central window, guests have a forward facing view standing anywhere in the salon. This architectural innovation serves to augment the sense of space and visually integrate the main deck.

The stairway enclosure (starboard) is used as additional counter space and bisects the salon and dining area to subtly define the spaces. Below, the design theme is repeated with contrasting rich dark woods, white carpeting and light fabrics. The palette suggests the Asian concept of yin and yang to impart a feeling of overall balance on board.

Luxury superyacht MAKIRA features an open and spacious  master stateroom, a very sizable VIP, a double and a twin stateroom, which together provide accommodation for up to nine guests.

MAKIRA is currently available in the Bahamas based in Nassau. MAKIRA will be in the Western Mediterranean in time for the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix and may consider charters in Croatia from June.

Virgin Islands Adventure: Spending 7 Nights Aboard a Private Luxury Yacht Charter

Breathtaking scenery, ideal climate and comfortable cruising conditions equal paradise for Luxury Crewed Yacht Charter clients who have the opportunity to explore living reefs, white sand beaches and charming towns, all within close proximity to one another. Presented here is a sample seven night itinerary designed with something for everyone.

Day 1: St. Thomas to St. John

It is nearly always possible to find a lovely secluded spot on this vast, white sand beach. Launch the yacht toys and spend the afternoon playing and swimming in crystal clear, turquoise waters. Snorkelers head for the deeper waters just beyond the shallow fringing reef along Francis Bay’s rocky north shore to view an amazing and rich variety of marine life. Stroll along beach or follow the Francis Bay Trail that runs along the salt pond behind the beach and is an excellent place for bird watching, especially early in the morning. Return to the the yacht to enjoy signature sunset cocktails followed by a delicious dinner under the stars.

Day 2: St. John to Jost Van Dyke

Leinster Bay, St John, offers a morning of spectacular snorkeling or hiking. Most agree that Waterlemon Cay, just offshore from the east end of Leinster Bay, is the best snorkeling on St. John. Explorers and hiking enthusiasts can walk along the many island trails where visitors are likely to spot feral donkeys and small herds of goats that roam freely through the bush. History buffs should take the Brown Bay Trail that leads to some of the most extensive ruins on the island of St. John.

In the afternoon set sail for the Jost Van Dyke, first stop in the British Virgin Islands. Foxy’s is one of the world famous beach bars where visitors can divulge in authentic Calypso island revelry.

 Overnight in Cane Garden Bay or head to West End, Tortola and a shore excursion to Pusser’s Landing for a “Painkiller” and some island shopping.

Day 4: Tortola to Norman Island

However, an old barge named the “Willie T” operates as a risque bar and restaurant known for seriously wild partying, mostly after dark.

Day 5: Norman Island to Virgin Gorda

Our Charter Experts On Board Luxury Charter Superyacht TOP FIVE: An Exquisite Christensen 157 with a Superb Crew

Our charter experts were invited to go aboard and experience the magnificent luxury charter yacht TOP FIVE, a 157′ Christensen available for charter in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. We were extremely impressed with everything about TOP FIVE, from her meticulous craftsmanship to her delightful crew. This is a superyacht with a stately, understated elegance that will enchant her charter guests while easily meeting all of the requirements of a discriminating clientele.

TOP FIVE (ex: Nice ‘N Easy, Liquidity) was built in 2005 by US builder Christensen Shipyards and was originally designed for the shipyard owner himself. Thus, although Christensen is renowned for launching magnificent yachts, TOP FIVE has design elements that launch her cleanly over the top.

Exterior design and naval architecture by the Christensen in-house team endowed TOP FIVE with the powerful and imposing profile that distinguishes the brand in any port of call. Recently the yacht has had an extensive soft goods refit to update interiors that are sophisticated, soothing and subtle. The broad appeal of understated elegance is perfectly suited to the diversity of charter clientele. Regardless of whether charter guests prefer Mozart or Madonna, they will feel comfortable and at home aboard TOP FIVE.

Superb joinery and intricate stonework are distinguishing features of luxury yacht TOP FIVE. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in the raised-panel joinery of American walnut with high gloss finish and perfectly matched wood panels and veneers. Deep earthen tones create a stunning balance against creamy white carpeting with a delicately undulating pattern. Exotic stone materials, including malachite and Juparana persa granite, are beautifully inlaid throughout the foyers, bathrooms and hallways. Contemporary furnishings in a light color palette derive sophistication from a simplicity of form.

Luxury yacht TOP FIVE accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms. The full beam master compartment is located on the main deck and includes stunning his and her facilities with Jacuzzi tub and large shower. A walk-in cedar closet provides ample storage for longer charters. At the entrance, a private study with comfortable sofa and desk allow guests to stay in touch with the office if necessary. On the lower level amidships
is the full beam VIP king suite that has an exquisite bathroom with Jacuzzi and separate shower. The 50 inch TV opposite the bed is cleverly concealed behind a pleasant painting. Also on this level are two queen guest staterooms and two guest staterooms each with double, twin and Pullman beds.

We met Chef Bradley David in his spotless galley on our visit. He surprised us with servings of delicately flavored tomato gazpacho, and what he described as “a sandwich”, (far to common a description of this remarkable crab delicacy), and a signature chocolate mousse creation. He is charming, talented, and a very experienced yacht chef quite capable of pleasing any palate. He said his favorite recipes to prepare are new ones, both his own creative dishes as well as those of other chefs.

Captain Johannes, despite expecting a new group of charter guests within the hour, graciously spent quite a bit of time chatting with us about TOP FIVE and some of his favorite Caribbean itineraries. Not only is he extremely knowledgable about the region, he is also enthusiastic about creating custom itineraries suited to repeat charter clients who are seeking alternative Caribbean ports of call. The Chief Stew and Second Stew were continually smiling, gracious and extremely attentive. This highly professional crew works together harmoniously and seems flawlessly adept at pleasing charter clients.

It was a great pleasure to be on board luxury superyacht TOP FIVE, and to have the opportunity to experience firsthand the elegant interiors, expansive deck spaces and first rate crew. TOP FIVE will undoubtedly be an exceedingly popular charter yacht in the Caribbean and the Bahamas this season.

Please contact Sunreef Yachts Charter for detailed information, charter rates and availability for TOP FIVE, or for comprehensive information about Luxury Yacht Charter and Destinations worldwide.
