Richard Orme at Large Yacht Solutions sends me the itinerary and charter rates for the 48.8m motor yacht Mary Jean in the South Pacific this year.
Her cruising areas are Tahiti in August, Auckland mid-September to November and Sydney over Christmas and New Year. A special feature offered to guests is the 'James Martin Experience' where this celebrity chef provides an unforgettable private dining experience. Naturally, this carries a surcharge over the normal weekly charter rate of €150,000 under MYBA terms.
Mary Jean was built by Campanella in 1981 and has had series of refits in 2006/11 costing over €8 million. Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, her interior by H2 Yacht Design sleeps up to 12 guests in a master, VIP, three doubles and a twin cabin. Mary Jean has a range of 3,500 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 13 knots.
