Special holiday charter rates on motor yacht Islander at Peter Kehoe
by Malcolm MacLean
Bonnie Mims, charter manager at Peter Kehoe & Associates, is offering charters on the 58.5m motor yacht Islander over the Christmas and New Year holidays at $240,000 per week for a minimum of 10 days in the Bahamas or Caribbean.
Islander was delivered by Australian Yacht Builders in 1991 to a design by Glade Johnson. She was originally built as an ABS classed motorsailer, but in 2010 had a complete internal and external refit which saw her masts and keel removed to convert her into a motor yacht.
Features now include a swimming pool, two cars, a sportfisher, a gymnasium and an elevator. She can sleep up to 12 guests in a master suite, three double staterooms and a twin cabin, along with three Pullman berths.
Captain Duncan Stephenson and a fully experienced charter crew of 12 are on hand to ensure a relaxed cruise and the yacht boasts a full array of water sports toys.
Charters on Islander at other times start from $195,000 per week plus expenses.
