the 4 largest yachts in Port this evening are from right to left.... 'Siren', Elixir'(the largest here), 'Tatiana 1' & 'MY Cipitouba'. Elixir is only €325,000.00 a week plus expenses, if you have it spare ;-)
Morning all -- Impressive lineup today! This port is quite popular and very lovely. Coraline, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when I saw your price for chartering Air! Lou, cruising the Med sounds like a wonderful way to spend summers.
a full Port again today. from left to right as you look are....'Aroha', 'Zulu', 'Carson', 'Were Dreams' & 'Awatea'.
Air shares the same name as another larger yacht, which is currently in Malta.

hey Coraline, no i'm afraid i missed it. i've been enjoying the good weather here while it lasts x hey Janey, the order they park in is determined partly by their length, but also very importantly by their draft (how much hull sits under the waterline). you'll notice the really big yachts tend to moor in the same slip, this will be because its the deepest part of the Port. some yachts have no home port and spend all summer cruising the Med, and winter cruising the Caribbean with their owners or on charter. those that do own a mooring somewhere, will rent out their slip to other cruising yachts, while they themselves are travelling x
Moring Coraline, Lou -- Looks like a full house today. Is there any order in which they must park? I would think it's rather close quarters for the occupants of such luxury yachts, but maybe they like visiting back and forth :) And, I'm wondering if they are just cruising around and stopping off on their way to final destination. I assume most have a home port and just travel during the summer months, but I'm curious.
Hey Lou, did you by any chance see the 'Portofino Bandit' on Monday?
from left to right as you look, we have... 'Dyna R', 'Mia Elise 2' and 'Awatea'.
the stunning newly launched (launched March this year) 70 metre 'Utopia IV' in the bay tonight.
Hi Coraline and all -- Oh, is that all for a week :) I'll start saving now!
6/5/2018 07:42The larger of the two is the 'Arion' which can be chartered for the bargain price of $104,000.00 (€85,000) a week.
Good morning all -- Lou, yesterday they were lined up in the port. Two of the largest back into their slips. It was amazing to watch. I was certain one of them would bump the other, but it went smoothly. Perhaps they were stopping for the night and enjoying this lovely area.
I confess I base my holiday/s around Superyachts! They've become the best part of the holiday..lol I never know which ones are going to be in, so it's always a nice surprise if my favourites appear. Last year all four of my regular ones where in! This past holiday I saw a Megayacht called Andromeda (ex Ulysses) arrive...it was HUGE! More like the size of a cruise ship. It made my holiday! lol
