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.

2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show Review: More People, More Merchandise, More Superyachts

The 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show is being hailed as a success and a sure sign of a general upswing in the economy. With increased traffic and positive sales results, it appears that people are poised to fully express their passions for yachting.

This year attendance was up at the show, which attracted more than 50,000 people. It covered more space than ever, thanks to the addition of 40 in-water slips at Palm Harbor Marina at the show’s north end.

 

Foyer, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

More than $350 million worth of marine merchandise was on display, and the number of yachts with an LOA greater than 100 feet was up 35 percent from last year, distinguishing this show as one of the top in the country. Sunreef Yachts Charter experts toured many of the most distinguished charter yachts, including DIAMOND GIRL, PRIVATE LIVES, BLIND DATE, took copious notes, interviewed Captains and crews and sampled gourmet cuisine on board.

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

Toys, PRIVATE LIVES

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.
