For those wanting to jet off, selecting which superyacht is perfect for your needs needn’t be a time-consuming process. Boasting a select charter fleet, Hill Robinson has elected the top three yachts that are available to call home.Photo: Guillaume PlissonBold
Available to charter, Bold is one of the coolest yachts to join the superyacht fleet last year. The 85-metre vessel has already taken on the arduous passage across the Indian Ocean as a part of her 21-day and 8,000-nautical mile maiden voyage – all with only one fuel stop. As currently the largest yacht to come from Australia’s premier luxury yacht builder SilverYachts, Bold has utilised the shipyard’s expertise in fuel efficiency and technical supremacy. Now under the management of Hill Robinson, she is set to charter in Norway and West Mediterranean this summer.Photo: Guillaume PlissonRenowned yacht designer Espen Øino has fashioned an aggressive exterior style and naval architecture together with SSPA from Sweden and SilverYachts’ in-house design team. Those on board can make use of Bold’s outdoor entertainment facilities, which start with the sundeck and its Jacuzzi, able to fit up to eight guests, with additional guests seated on the surrounding sun pads. Also on the sundeck is the integrated ‘media wall’ and large scale 40,000+ watt sound system for unique outdoor cinema screenings. Further screens can be found in the nearby helihanger, which can be used as a cinema, gym or yoga room.Photo: Guillaume PlissonIndoors, Bold’s 300-square-metre loft saloon features floor to ceiling windows and an open plan arrangement which leads guests into the winter garden. Here, the marble table can serve up to 18 guests for a fine dining experience, or the event can turn into an alfresco teppanyaki barbecue once the glass panel is opened. Surrounded by full-height windows that wrap around the entire aft deck structure, this space presents unrivalled views and creates a floating environment on the inside. Decor and features include handmade silk carpets by Tai Ping and a media wall with access into the large winter garden.Photo: Guillaume PlissonAble to sleep up to 16 guests in eight staterooms, the accommodation options are dominated by the large owner’s suite and its his-and-hers ensuite bathrooms, hammam and private saloon with direct access to exterior decks. Further choices for accommodation include three VIP guest cabins and four double guest cabins which are decorated similarly to the contemporary guest areas with teak and oak panelling, metallic painted features combined with oak and marble floors.Photo: Guillaume PlissonIn terms of toys, Bold carries three custom Rupert Marine tenders and a selection of watersports toys including two Sea-Doo Jetskis on her 34-metre-long aft deck. Two fold-down balconies extend this expansive deck even further to provide a safe area for helicopter operations once all tenders and toys have been launched. Bold can accommodate helicopters with a D value of up to 13 and is suitable for larger craft such as an AW109.Photo: Guillaume PlissonBenefits of the yacht’s characteristic straight bow shape include an increased interior volume due to the longer waterline length, as well as decreased resistance resulting in a higher top speed of 23 knots. Powered by twin compact MTU 16V 4000 M73L engines, Bold offers a range of 5,000 nm at 18 knots. Her crew of up to 21, including Captain Leech and chief officer Nicholas Dolphin, both from Australia, and Italian executive chef Giuseppe Todisco offer guests a high-end service. Together, their skills range from diving, water sports instruction, fishing, massage and horse riding.
Characterised by vast deck spaces, sweeping exterior lines and a contemporary interior, the 55-metre Rarity has become quite the sea veteran since her launch at the Rossinavi shipyard in 2008. Built to RINA classification, Rarity received her 10-year survey in 2017, during which time she also underwent a lengthy refit at the Lusben Shipyard in Viareggio which saw her receive a new lick of paint, work on her shafts, a stern extension and a complete interior revamp.Upon embarking the vessel, guests are greeted by a circular lobby with an illuminated spiral staircase, draped around an elegant elevator that serves all four decks. Originally designed by Officina Italiana Design, Rarity now features fresh and timeless interior by Cristiano Gatto Design that showcases regal Italian details which are blended into an otherwise contemporary decor. Her open-plan main saloon is the ideal space to entertain and is decorated with plush velvet seating, modern artwork hanging on the walls and a grand dining area.At 736 GT, Rarity can accommodate a party of up to 12 in six opulent staterooms comprised of a large master suite with a private office and modern ensuite facilities, a VIP suite, two double staterooms and two twin staterooms, one of which can be converted into a double suite. Onboard entertainment is available in the form of a fully equipped gym, a sky lounge with a 22-inch cinema screen; plus an abundance of water sports toys including two Yamaha Jetskis, Seabobs, wakeboards and a Castoldi jet tender.

Meanwhile, a crew of seven, who sleep in four crew cabins, can cater to their needs.Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPowered by twin MTU 12V 396 TE94 diesel-fuelled engines with 2,285 hp each, the 310 GT all-GRP Indigo Star I reaches a top speed of 21 knots. When cruising at an economic speed, she has a range of 2,800 nautical miles.
