46' Catamaran 35th America’s Cup – May 26 through June 27 2017

Charter yachts for the America’s Cup are updated continually.   Here is the Schedule of Events (link)

Come join Captain Ken on board and become a part of the action in Bermuda as the United States defends their trophy against five challenging countries on 50 foot foiling catamarans capable of sailing almost three times faster than the wind.

This modern 46′ Sailing Catamaran is now being offered for the America’s Cup in Bermuda during these critical and exciting weeks.  She is a comfortable cruising design accommodating up to 6 guests in private ensuite staterooms.

Captain Ken offers a “Captain Only” experience vs. a fully crewed yacht.  Why? “Peace of mind – I offer a no stress solution for groups that would like to charter their own bareboat (skipper your own) but are apprehensive about sailing a catamaran for the first time or sailing in unfamiliar waters. I am responsible for the boat and you get to decide each day whether you would like to lend a hand with the sailing or not. In an effort to help make this a truly stress free and enjoyable vacation, if requested, I will gladly meet you at the airport or assist with transfers or even assist you to provision the boat.”

First time charterer:   “Fantastic” I am a flight attendant and this was one my most memorable vacations.  If you have never considered sleeping in a cabin on a boat and the beautiful ocean as a vacation place, it’s time!; “add this adventure to your bucket list”, I would highly recommend this amazing experience with  Captain Ken for your sailing experience.”

KING BABY Motor Yacht

The 140-foot (42.7m) IAG luxury motor yacht draws influences from rock’n’roll history and the edgy jewelry line she is named after. With five chic and contemporary staterooms offering accommodation for up to 12 guests, KING BABY is the perfect yacht for an exciting holiday in the Caribbean. Guests will enjoy a full-beam master suite on the main deck, which has a sumptuous his-and-hers en-suite bathroom, three superbly styled en-suite king staterooms and one large twin stateroom below deck.

With interior and exterior styling by the renowned Evan K. Marshall, the aesthetic of KING BABY is bold and slightly provocative.  Her unique style makes her a standout. On board KING BABY guitars are used as pieces of art, custom tables and doors are inspired by kings of rock and vintage hood ornaments set a truly alluring tone. Furthermore, the owners curated an inspiring collection of classic rock photos and iconography throughout the decks of the yacht. All of this is made complete by modern amenities that ensure total comfort while cruising.

Luxury with a rebel spirit is what KING BABY is all about.

For best results, share your dates and ideas with our complimentary planning service today.

MAIN FEATURES

 

Fantastic charter-savvy crew under the command of Captain Peter Spinelli
The largest composite IAG Yacht ever built in China
Show-stopping rock iconography throughout
Guest accommodations for 12 in five beautifully designed staterooms
84-inch TV in the skylounge with a mega sound system for the ultimate cinema experience
Custom-built Jacuzzi with a three-tiered waterfall surrounded by a stylish bar on sundeck
Upper aft deck features alfresco dining for 10 with AC panel for comfort

Evan K. Marshall is responsible for the swooping exterior lines and the relaxing interior, a mix of hand-crafted black walnut woodwork offset by lighter upholstery. Big windows really open up the shared guest spaces, and there is plenty of headroom, too (the owner is over six feet tall). The guest spaces benefit from some monochrome images of a variety of latterday rock stars and icons – Keith Richards, Pattie Hansen, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Debbie Harry and Bob Dylan among others, and there’s even an electric guitar on a stand in the sky lounge, should any guest feel the need to jam. The rock theme adds a cool vibe to the yacht, and perhaps indicates the interests of her owner.  – Superyachtworld

americas-cup-trials-in-nyc-may-2016Our spectator fleet of yachts (updated weekly, listed below) sells out early, and is the ideal on-sea vantage point for viewing the race.  Hosting friends and colleagues during these weeks will prove to be thrilling, but you must reserve as soon as possible to ensure your place. For best results,  Contact us today to reserve the most coveted seats for this yachting spectacle!

Read on for details about the race, the racers and our fleet of available yachts, updated weekly.   Meanwhile, enjoy this video of stunning Bermuda and the world’s fastest yachts!

About the Race

The America’s Cup is the oldest and arguably the most coveted trophy in international sport, dating back to 1851.  To win the hosting spot for the 2017 event, Bermuda beat out San Francisco (host of 2014 34th Cup) and Chicago, with a bid of $77 million US dollars.  Known as the “Land of Wind and Water”, Bermuda already reports that sponsors and spectators are buying up space on land and on the sea.  In this world class sailing race, 5 rival teams will compete to defeat current defenders Team ORACLE.

About the Racers

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series will use foiling AC45 catamarans, also known as AC45f, a one-design wing-sail catamaran with foils designed specifically for the event by the Oracle Racing engineering team.

What is the cost of being a player in the Indy 500 of the ocean?  Back in 2013, the 62′ Catamarans cost $8Million to $10Million per boat and most all teams have a back-up!  Larry Ellis of ORACLE spent close to $250-300Million defending the title.  The entry fee is $3Million.

Currently the ORACLE Team AC45f is being built in New Zealand.  All teams agreed that a 45′ Catamaran would cost significantly less per racing yacht.  Only in December of this year, will they be able to start practicing and tweaking.  Along with the redesign, a series of rule changes will reduce team operational costs, essentially by racing in a smaller boat.

Croatia and Montenegro Cruising

Have a Ozujsko on us!

Croatia and Montenegro Cruising are boarder countries sharing scenic beauty and historic ports of call.   Charters may begin in Dubrovnik, Split or Trogir and end in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro.

Croatia and Montenegro Cruising72′ Luxury Sail Catamaran KINGS RANSOM with 5 staterooms is offering a reduced rate from now until end of September.  10 guests will be pampered by her 4 experienced crew.  *End of summer special rates apply from 38,000 to 34,000 Euro Per Week (plus expenses).

Rick Steves’ Europe has a great description of discovering Montenegro.

Please look at our suggested itinerary:  Cruising the Coast of Croatia

We have many luxury sail and motor yachts that are Croatian flagged vessels which you can begin and end your charter vacation within the country.  Other yachts that charter having foreign flags (other than Croatia) can meet you in Trogir, Split or Dubrovnik ~ but are required to end in Montenegro.

I have sailed there several times within the last 5 years.  The beer is not so bad either!
