Special rate on motor yacht Ulysses from September
by Malcolm Maclean
The 56 metre (184’) luxury motor yacht Ulysses is offering a reduced rate of €200,000 for any week-long charters in the South of France from September onwards.
Ulysses, which is currently for sale, was built by Benetti in 2012 and has a striking black hull and beige superstructure with a classic interior sporting marble artwork, chandeliers and rare pictures.
She has accommodation for 12 guests in six staterooms plus 12 crew. As well as a spacious master suite on the main deck, she features an office, hairdressing salon, bedroom and a private observation lounge forward.
The VIP suite is located on the upper deck and offers stunning panoramic views over the sea while below are a further two double and two single cabins. All cabins are en suite.
Her impressive saloon has a cocktail bar and lounging area along with an antique grand piano by Steinway & Sons. However, non-musical guests have no need to try to play it, as it has been specially adapted to tinkle away automatically at the touch of a button.
Ulysses has three separate dining areas for 12 guests with formal dining in the main saloon and al fresco meals on the upper and sun decks, all united by a central elevator. The sun deck is particularly suited to outdoor life, equipped with a full wet bar, pizza oven, outdoor cinema, spa pool and large sun pads. More al fresco entertaining and dining is offered on the shaded aft deck, complete with seating and cocktail tables.
A wide range of water toys includes two tenders, two Yamaha Waverunners, water skis, snorkelling gear and a selection of towables.
Weekly charter rates are normally €280,000 in high season and €255,000 in low season through Fraser Yachts.
