In this series of articles, we take a look at the best charter deals currently on offer in some of the best cruising hotspots in the world. What, Why, Where and Who forms the basis of the articles. This week we look at the 49.68-metre superyacht Blu 470 available for charter experiences with Thompson Westwood White Yachts around the Western and Eastern Mediterranean this summer and around the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Cuba this winter. Blu 470 will also be at the MYBA Charter Show this year between 23rd-26th April.
What is on offer?
The 49.68-metre displacement superyacht Blu 470 was built by the renowned Dutch yard Feadship in 1990 and underwent an extensive refit in 2014 under the supervision of the Patrick Knowles design team. Her naval architecture and exterior design are from the drawing boards of De Voogt Naval architects.
On board, she accommodates 10 guests in style and comfort across five luxurious staterooms comprising one master suite, three queen-sized staterooms and one twin which can be converted to a king-sized double room, with a crew of 11 also accommodated for on board. Thanks to her Caterpillar Inc 3512B DITA Diesel engine, Blu 470 cruises comfortably at 12 knots.
Why do we think this is such a good idea?
With her classic Feadship good looks, expansive sundeck with jacuzzi, sky lounge with huge TV and games table and custom-built 250 bottle wine cellar, Blu 470 is the ideal charter superyacht and was even named a finalist in the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.
Thanks to her wide variety of water toys available - including an 11.3m state-of-the-art Axopar tender, Seabobs, wave runners, Waterskis, snorkelling gear and much more - Blu 470 is perfect for making memories out at sea and also comes equipped with a DJI Drone. A real must see, this 49.68-metre Feadship superyacht combines style, comfort and luxury and truly exemplifies the superyacht lifestyle.
Blu 470 is available for charter this summer around the Western and Eastern Mediterranean this summer and is also available for charter this winter around the Caribbean, Bahamas and Cuba. Her rates begin from €185,000 – €210,000 per week plus taxes and expenses.
