5 reasons to charter Delta Marine superyacht Laurel

She’s packed with on board activities

Built for comfortable cruising in luxurious surroundings, 73.2 metre Laurel is managed for charter with Ocean Independence. Scheduled to arrive in Monaco at the beginning of June, she will be available to charter in the West Mediterranean this summer. Take a peek inside this stunning superyacht and discover her on board highlights…

With an impressive selection of watersports, toys and tenders, there’s something for everyone on board Laurel, including waverunners, wakeboards and towable toys for adrenaline-seekers, and stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and snorkelling gear for those who enjoy a slower pace to their vacation. She also has a large inflatable slide from the bridge deck, an inflatable trampoline and two giant hamster wheels, providing hours of on-the-water entertainment.

And, whether you’re an experienced diver or looking to take the first step towards exploring the underwater world, there are two certified dive instructors on board.

On deck, there’s a fully equipped gym, as well as a library that converts into a private cinema.

She boasts excellent accommodation with private terraces

There’s generous accommodation for up to 12 guests in seven cabins, which includes an owner’s suite, four double staterooms, one twin cabin and one convertible cabin that can be used as a massage room.

Situated on the main deck, the owner’s suite features a sizeable lounge, an office and his and hers walk-in wardrobes, as well as two private terraces, to port and starboard, where guests can enjoy stunning sea views both at anchor or underway.

This cabin is strategically placed amidships, just aft of the crew mess and behind a soundproof bulkhead, to avoid the working noise associated with the main deck forward such as bow thruster and anchor operation.

Her thoughtful design

An elevator offering full wheelchair accessibility to all guest decks is just one of Laurel’s clever features. She also has an ultra-modern stabilisation system to reduce roll motion effect and ensure ultimate comfort throughout your charter vacation.

Daphne d’Offay, Ocean Independence charter broker, says, “Exceptional quality is expressed throughout this vessel which can truly only be appreciated when aboard. From the personal touches offered by crew to the exquisite woodwork, fabrics and technology, Laurel is extraordinary.”

She’s classically beautiful inside and out

Delivered in 2006 by Seattle-based yard Delta Marine, Laurel is one of the largest custom superyachts built in the USA to date.

Following a refit in 2014, her interior, by Donald Starkey Designs, is warm and elegant with hardwood floors and earth inspired tones. The main saloon welcomes guests to an arrangement of oversized chairs and elegant sofas, perfect for a casual evening in front of the television, which is subtly concealed behind one of many art pieces displayed throughout the yacht.

The luxe interior is enhanced with English wool carpets, fine linens and an extensive inventory of exquisite china, as well as a central staircase that spirals around a three-storey glass sculpture by Seattle artist Mary van Cline.

Her exterior offers numerous spaces to enjoy al fresco dining, including an area on the aft bridge deck with an extendable teak table, and a large sofa further aft provides the perfect spot for guests to enjoy an afternoon cocktail or two.

She boasts panoramic views from a protected observation lounge on the sun deck, with a seated bar and cocktail tables on a forward terrace. There is a central Jacuzzi that sits beside a glass-enclosed shower, surrounded by multiple chaise lounges and sunbeds for the ultimate sanctuary at sea.

Her private beach club with large swim platform

The aft staircase leads straight down to the main deck and further to the beach club. With the garage open, the area transforms into a playground at sea, providing easy access to the water for midday swim from the large swim platform, while separate side launching tender garages allow the beach club to remain exclusive for guests.

If you’re looking for luxury cruising in the Western Mediterranean this summer, contact Ocean Independence, where Laurel is managed for charter, with a weekly charter rate starting from €425,000 per week.
