Unlike smaller vessels, these larger boats can accommodate more guests in several different cabins. They also typically have a more luxurious feel. These yachts can be more expensive, but the price is often worth it for many people.
The 35 meter M&EM was built by Mengi-Yay and entered the charter market in 2012. Her exterior was designed by Kerim Demir, who has designed 11 other superyachts in the BOAT Pro database – she has a Teak deck, an Epoxy Laminated Mahogany hull and an Aluminium superstructure.
She carries 175,000 litres of fuel and has a maximum speed of 16 knots. She can carry up to 10 guests in five cabins and has 6 crew members on board.
M&EM sails under the Cayman Islands flag and is known to be active. To see the location of her and to access other data about this yacht, including AIS information, join BOAT Pro – the world’s leading superyacht intelligence system.
The largest luxury vessels can accommodate more passengers and have more onboard options, including a variety of dining venues. Some of these larger ships are even capable of sailing to destinations that smaller vessels can’t safely reach due to their size or lack of ice-breaking capabilities.
For example, river cruise line Viking designs its 135-meter vessels to carry 190 passengers. Other river companies such as Avalon Waterways and Tauck put fewer than 130 passengers on their ships of the same length.
In addition to a variety of restaurants, luxury ships typically have several bars and standalone cigar lounges; spas; swimming pools; beauty salons and full-fledged fitness centers. And most of the cabins on these vessels are made up entirely of suite accommodations with private balconies.
Many yacht owners find that a significant part of the year they cannot enjoy their vessels due to work commitments, family or other personal interests. Opening up their yachts to charters allows them to offset some of the annual costs of owning a yacht while keeping it active.
This can help the yacht’s reputation among potential buyers and charter guests alike. Being in a busy charter fleet also means that the vessel is being regularly serviced and kept clean, which can increase the resale value of the yacht.
Charter yachts typically offer a full range of inside and outside socialising zones with a variety of luxurious amenities such as cinema rooms, Jacuzzis and Turkish baths. They are also routinely equipped with a selection of toys for towed watersports, such as jet tenders and personal watercraft. They may also be equipped with large aft ‘beach’ areas for self-propelled recreation, such as stand-up paddleboards and sailing dinghies.
