Luxury charter yacht ATLANTIC enters 2013 Camper & Nicholsons Trophee Bailli de Suffren

April 12, 2013

Organisers of “The Mediterranean’s most beautiful yacht race” announced that the majestic 56-metre (184-foot) charter yacht Atlantic has officially entered the 2013 Camper & Nicholsons Trophée Bailli de Suffren. The event represents a three-leg offshore race for classic yachts from Saint-Tropez to Malta, via Sardinia’s Porto Rotondo and Trapani in Sicily.

Sailing yacht Atlantic is a faithful replica of William Gardner’s classic, winner of the transatlantic ‘Kaiser’s Cup’ in 1905 with the famous Captain Charlie Barr at the helm. Covering 3,000 miles from Sandy Hook, USA to the Lizard in Cornwall in 12 days, 4 hours and 1 minute, she set a record that was not bettered by a monohull until 1997.

“The name Atlantic is legendary among classic racing yachts, on the same level as the famous J Class yachts,” said Sean Purdy, C&N Marinas’ Marketing Director. “With 18,500 square feet of sail she will make a magnificent sight on the Bailli de Suffren race course this June.”

Atlantic yacht’s captain, Ed Kastelein added, “Atlantic sailed this race in 2010 and our charterers loved it then. I expect this time will be even better.” Throwing down the gauntlet to other big boats in the classic fleet, he continued, “I look forward to taking on a few other big racing yachts. If they’re up to it!

The original luxury charter yacht Atlantic’s sailing career ended with World War II, and she was eventually broken up in 1982, but in 2009 the modern replica was launched. At 62m (203 feet) overall, including bowsprit and mizzen boom, and with a permanent crew of 11 and accommodation for 12 guests she is without doubt one of the most impressive sailing yachts afloat.

Captain Edwin Vella from the family-run Vella Marine Malta said, “We already have a very reputable shipping and yacht services company here at Vella Marine. As a superyacht captain myself, and with regular contact with so many other captains, crew and owners, it made sense to introduce recruitment services to our portfolio of superyacht services, too.

“Now, we can help with everything from fuel, customs clearance and refit management to a complete crew recruitment service. This has been lacking in Malta until now, and with our extensive network of high-calibre international clients, we hope that 2013 proves to be a fantastic opening year for this new sector of our business.”

Kerry O’Neill, marketing executive with Yachting Pages, the leading superyacht directory said, “We are thrilled that Vella Marine Malta has chosen to reach out to the superyacht world with our help.

“We’re confident that plenty of superyacht crew in the region and internationally will choose to seek their next superyacht position through Captain Edwin and Vella Marine Malta – and that many captains in turn will come to him for advice and crew recommendations.

“At Yachting Pages we’re about to deliver over 60,000 print directories worldwide, and of course the Yachting Pages’ website never sleeps. The website’s about to get even better too, with a site upgrade launching this summer and improved review and rating functionality. Read our reviews, then choose the best recruiter for you.”

Yachting Pages is a hub for superyacht crew recruiters.  With the Antibes Yacht Show running from 18th – 21st April in 2013, the offices of recruiters on the French Riviera such as Recrewt, Crew Unlimited, YPI Crew, Camper & Nicholsons International, The Crew Network, Viking and Monaco Hotel and Marine Consulting will be busier than ever.

Blohm & Voss Yacht LADY MOURA Gets Special Makeover by Wild Group

April 03, 2013

As entering Monaco Harbour from the sea, it is hard not to miss the legendary 105-metre Blohm & Voss yacht Lady Moura, docked on her private berth. But even luxury motor yacht Lady Moura can suffer from the ravishes of sea air as well as the burn of the Mediterranean sun.

Whilst the Wild Group team were performing a test patch on superyacht Lady Moura’s chase boat, the Mangusta 92 yacht Little Saf, the captain enquired about restoring Lady Moura’s external blind windows. “They were in desperate need of renovation,” he said. The seals were broken and air ingress was causing discoloration and delamination at the edge of the glass. There was also oxidization on some of the windows making them appear red. Something had to be done.

So after consultation between the Captain and the Directors of Wild Group International it was agreed that a marine grade blue tint vinyl film was the best solution, offering the perfect colour tint match. The Wild Group sourced a specific bespoke blue tint and answered all the captains’ questions about the material.

New foil was applied to twenty four of the blind windows including some of the larger complex shaped windows. The silicone seal at the window edges was removed prior to applying the new foil and then re-applied afterwards, so as to ensure longevity and a great standard of finish.

The window Mullions were also in desperate need of replacement.  These were originally black anodized aluminium but had been bleached in the sun delivering uneven tones of grey/ black throughout. 188 Mullions were lined in a black matt vinyl offering a UV protective coat that would outperform paint and prevent the timely task of having them removed and replaced while the 105m mega yacht Lady Moura is put into a dusty work shed. Again the silicone seal at the mullion edges was removed prior to applying the new vinyl and then re-applied afterwards, so as to ensure longevity and a great standard of finish.

“I like to say thank you for the great job your team has done. We are very happy with the result and looking already for other places to apply foil. The appearance of the old windows is fantastic with the new black mullions in between,” commented the Captain of superyacht Lady Moura.

“It is excellent to work with a yacht that is so accommodating.  The captain and his team went out of their way to enable us to do a professional job, including supplying a crane/ access and first class food and accommodation. We look forward to an ongoing great working relationship with M/Y Lady Moura,” added Greg Hoar, Director Wild Group International.
