Currently ranked as the 35th largest yacht in the world and one of the largest available to charter, Indian Empress is absolutely vast.

In any bay, port or marina her sheer size will turn heads and attract attention, but nowhere is the view more impressive than onboard. Although first commissioned by the Qatari Royal Family, Indian Empress is now owned by the Indian business tycoon Dr Vijay Mallya who is known for hosting lavish on-board parties during the Grand Prix motor racing season. In keeping with Mallya’s taste all five decks have subtle Indian furnishings but there are also European touches provided by Dali, Renoir and Picasso. Indian Empress is so well equipped, guests need hardly step ashore: there is an oversized Jacuzzi, a fully staffed beauty saloon, and a private office with adjacent PA station and gym. But when the time comes for going ashore there are numerous tenders to ferry guests and even a helicopter pad. Furthermore, with 30 crew far outnumbering the 12 guests Indian Empress can accommodate, there is no shortage of excellent service.

One of the giants of the Lürssen fleet, Polar Star was created to offer guests limitless cruising.

Her steel ice-class hull and long distance standards are not, however, out of place on a glamorous Mediterranean shoreline. The six guest suites have all been placed on the main deck completing a clever division between crew and guest accommodation. All are en-suite, and the master suite is even double en-suite, featuring ‘his’ and ‘hers’ bathrooms as well as panoramic views forward through generous windows. There is capacious outdoor deck space and a spa pool on the owner’s aft deck that holds 10. In addition, Polar Star’s refit will be completed in time for this summer season in the Mediterranean. The newly upholstered interior will give the yacht a fresh contemporary feel and the new outdoor cinema on the sundeck will most certainly be a popular addition.

Leisure and recreation: Mastercraft tender (specially designed for water skiing and wakeboarding), 4 x waterskis, 2 x wakeboards, kneeboard, 6-man towing banana and towing doughnut, 3 x Seabob underwater jet scooters, 2 x new Yamaha jet skis, 1 x stand-up Kawasaki jet ski, 8 sets of scuba gear and 12 sets of snorkeling gear in various sizes.

Lady Natinia is one of few luxury superyachts that are able to combine intricate opulence with incredible speeds. With a cruising speed averaging 20 knots and top speed approaching 30, she is able to glide effortlessly between destinations, allowing her guests more time to see and explore each one – a rare advantage.

The interior is not what you would expect from a high-speed yacht: the four cabins are all en-suite, and the master cabin, the most spacious, has its own Jacuzzi tub that doubles up as a steam room. The two twin rooms are easily converted into doubles giving a welcome degree of flexibility to guests.

The British-built Sunseekers have a reputation for style and class, and are the yacht of choice for those with wealth and good taste.

Champneys is a Sunseeker Predator 82, a performance range renowned for its combination of high speeds and first class specifications. Alfresco luxury is the defining characteristic of this yacht: large picture windows and side deck doors allow light from an open and airy saloon to flow outside where there is a full wet bar, an integral barbecue and generous sun lounging space. The accommodation includes two double and one twin suite, all contemporarily furnished, while the saloon’s stylish furnishings provide relaxing respite from the sun.

This stunning schooner, a modern recreation of the 1928 Trans-Atlantic Race holder designed by Nathaniel G Herreshoff, is a wonder to behold.

Under full canvas Elena will attract admirers and she will certainly turn heads in port. Her spacious teak decks provide an abundance of room for an entire race crew, a cocktail party of 80 guests or, alternatively, plenty of room for relaxing and sunbathing. Elena’s interior, in accordance with the original designs, is a masterpiece of mahogany wood paneling with gracious fittings. But don’t take this yacht for granted, for underneath her classical hull and luxury amenities lies a true racing pedigree that can be put to the test during Mediterranean classics such as Le Voile de Saint Tropez or Monaco Classics Week.

Leisure and recreation: Wally tender and further watersports facilities available upon request.



Length | 94ft (29m) Number of guests | 4 Number of staterooms | 2 Builder | Wally Europe, Italy Year of construction | 2005 Draft | 13.7ft (4.2M) Weekly rate | $60,000

Barong C is a yacht built for show: the simple lines of this 94 foot (29 meter) sloop are enhanced by her dark navy color and absence of mooring winches, cleats, anchors or sheets with both furling mainsail and jib.

As a result the clear teak space can be used for entertaining or relaxing in the sun. The cockpit seats 10 for alfresco dining and the aft deck can be transformed into one large sunbathing pad. Barong C’s interior was specially designed in accordance with the owner’s request to live onboard comfortably for several months. You will therefore find the owner’s stateroom with its en-suite bathroom and office positioned amidships, where motion of the yacht is less obvious. There is also a generous double guest cabin with en-suite bathroom – also amidships.

Leisure and recreation: Zodiac 12 foot (3.6 meter) RIB with 25hp.
