Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners International sends news that two motor yachts, the 58.5m Islander and 30m L’Or, have now joined the charter fleet.
Available for charter in the Adriatic and Mediterranean this summer, Islander joins the fleet fresh from an extensive two-year refit. A high volume, spacious yacht, she enjoys a particularly large sun deck with a full central bar area, informal dining areas, barbecue and a large swimming pool, with Jacuzzi jets, that can be filled with either fresh or sea water.
“A major aspect of Islander is that she is one of the few luxury charter yachts available today that can also properly accommodate wheelchairs,” says her retail broker, Nicolas Benazeth. “She offers through-hull access on starboard together with an elevator which provides access to all levels including the sundeck. Specially widened doorways allow for easy access throughout so she really is a yacht everyone can really relax on and enjoy.”
Islander can accommodate 10-12 guests in five staterooms and a convertible study, all with ensuite bathrooms and is available at weekly rates starting from $195,000.
Custom-built and launched in 1993, the striking semi-displacement superyacht L’Or remains resolutely contemporary and ideal for charter in the Mediterranean this summer. “She was refitted in 2007,” explains her YPI charter manager, Carine Zanotti, “and has been constantly upgraded and meticulously maintained since. Her contemporary interior decor and superbly appointed deck spaces continue to appeal to a very broad market indeed.” L’Or accommodates eight guests in a master suite, a double stateroom and two twin cabins and is available from €46,000 per week.
