Motor yacht Da Bubba for charter with International Yacht Collection
by Malcolm MacLean
Allison Cecilio at International Yacht Collection is offering Hargrave's 30.4m motor yacht Da Bubba for charter this winter.
The superb sun deck is the yacht's favourite hang-out, offering guests a spa pool, full service bar, sun-pads and barbecue, plus lounging and casual dining, while a further more formal outside dining table is found on the shaded aft deck. Inside the yacht, the air-conditioned main saloon, with its marble-topped wet bar and comfortable settee, is a relaxing escape from the sun and heat as well as place for formal dining at the eight-seater, circular table.
Da Bubba sleeps eight guests in four en suite staterooms, all located on the lower deck, and all with televisions operated by Crestron panels. The master has a king-sized bed and his-and-hers heads separated by a Jacuzzi tub, two further doubles have queen-sized beds, and the fourth cabin is a twin that can convert to a double.
Tenders and watersports gear includes the yacht's chase boat, a 29-foot Jupiter with a pair of 250hp Yamahas, a 14-foot Walker Bay inflatable with a 70hp Yamaha, and two 3-person Yamaha Waverunners. Two paddle boards, eight sets of snorkelling gear and assorted fishing gear, plus skis and other towed toys complete the line-up.
Based in Florida and the Bahamas in both summer and winter, Da Bubba is available at weekly rates of $42,500 for six guests and $45,000 for seven to eight guests.
