23 January 2023• Written by Georgia Boscawen

If you know where to look, there are plenty of charter deals and discounts to be found for a spontaneous, last-minute getaway. To save time, we’ve done the research and tracked down all the best deals on the market, including these superyacht charter discounts, special rates and last-minute offers that are available right now...

Arrow

Stats: Feadship, 75m, 2020, 12 guests, 19 crew

The deal: A rate of $500,000 for charter bookings over four-day weekends in The Exumas this February and March

Highlights: Arrow is the yacht that Feadship director Henk de Vries referred to as "one of the best Feadships ever completed" – quite a statement from one of the world’s most prestigious superyacht builders. And by looking at her perfectly balanced profile, it’s not difficult to see why. Designed by London-based studio, H2 Yacht Design, the 72-metre yacht has low glass railings, high deck heights, expansive gangways and elegant curvaceous lines. Her interiors – also described as “elaborately detailed” – feature backlit marble and varnished teak, a bespoke mosaic-lined Jacuzzi located on the sundeck, and a beach club aft complete with a unique bar area.

Arrow is available to charter with Edmiston at a normal weekly rate of $850,000, excluding the deal.

Africa I

Stats: Benetti, 47m, 2010 (2022), 12 guests, 12 crew

The deal: 10 per cent reduction and the extension of the reduced 5.2 per cent VAT for May charters in Greece

Highlights: Fresh out of the shipyard after an extensive refit, which included a brand-new interior, Africa I is off to Greece this season. A popular choice with celebrities, the 47 metre was the charter yacht of choice for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2019. The main deck saloon is open-plan with panoramic windows giving excellent views, an L-shaped seating area, a low coffee table, a library, and a fully stocked bar. Out on deck, Africa I is primed for entertaining offering excellent spaces for al fresco cocktails on the aft deck.

Africa I is available to charter with IYC with a weekly rate from €200,000 per week.

Sherakhan

Stats: Vuyk, 1966 (2018), 69.6m, 26 guests, 19 crew

The Deal: 10 days aboard for the price of eight when booking before 6 March 2023

Highlights: First built as a passenger ship in 1966, the 70 metre Sherekhan was revived and transformed into the ultimate charter yacht in 2018. Instantly recognisable, the yacht’s classic white exterior shields an elegant and contemporary interior, which is primed for entertaining thanks to her double-height main saloon measuring seven metres high, and huge spa. A crisp white colour palette and an array of subtle textures make up her interior styling, along with an assortment of unique pieces of furniture and a vast collection of explorer first editions. Up on her expansive top deck, a large bar aft is primed for parties, along with a huge 18-person Jacuzzi.

Sherakhan is available to charter with Y.CO with a weekly rate from €485,000

Lady E

Stats: 74.5m, Amels, 2006 (refit in 2020), 12 guests, 21 crew

The Deal: A 10 per cent discount for five-day bookings in low season

Highlights: Following her all-encompassing overhaul in 2020, Lady E resurfaced on the charter market as an entirely new offering. A bright and breezy interior is complemented by large windows which flood the spaces with natural light throughout.

With a new beach club, hammam spa, and climate-controlled gym, Lady E certainly ticks all the boxes regarding wellness. For those looking for something less leisurely, she is packed with toys including a climbing wall, Jet Skis, scuba gear, e-foils, Flyboards, and sailing dinghies. She also benefits from a crew made up of water sports enthusiasts who know the best spots to drop anchor and can teach you how to get to grips with the toys.

Lady E is managed for charter by Burgess with a weekly charter rate from $665,000.
