Famous celebrities sipping champagne in the Caribbean sun, running barefoot on the beach, crunching on crab claws and diving into the colourful depths of the coral reef – super yachts and celebrities seem to go together in almost perfect fashion. Maybe it’s because the high seas are the perfect escape from prying eyes, because the glitzy coastline is an endless array of starry eyed parties and perfect bliss, or because relaxing in a bubbling Jacuzzi with a bottle of vintage champagne is the only way to spend those gentle hours between movie shoots. For those who love to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, MY STARFIRE can charter you across the sunlit woven blue and into those divine destinations where the party never stops. If you fancy frolicking in the waves with rock gods and movie stars, then the following spots are simply perfect for finding that Oscar studded crowd.
The French Riviera is world famous for its glittering beaches, its five star restaurants, and its gleaming array of luxury yachts lined up in the most expensive marinas. From the bright lights of the casinos to the annual film festival, this designer spot always proves itself to be a major draw for some of the biggest names in the industry. Super yacht days in Cannes are all about soaking up the cocktails and chintz at the coolest hangouts, riding Jet Ski’s around the glorious coastline, and nibbling your way through an endless array of rich Provençal foods. Dine seated next to a Hollywood celebrity at the Felix in the Croisette, shimmy at the achingly cool Baoli nightclub, sip something special at the Mouton Cadet wine bar, and work on your tan at the infamous Nikki Beach.
When winter creeps in with icy fingers there is nowhere that calls to super yachts quite like the Caribbean. MY Starfire can take you gliding into paradise for long and lingering days spent indulging in onboard spa bliss, fresh seafood suppers, designer shopping, and snorkeling in the shallows. When you want some high class company you will be spoilt for choice with the array of A list names that flock to the fabulous shores of St Barts. Laugh along with the best comedy actors as you dine on caviar and champagne cocktails at the Carl Gustaf Hotel, watch the most successful singers strut their stuff at the ultra-hip Nikki Beach Club, wave at the Victoria Secret models who fly to the island every year for their calendar shoot, and if you are lucky enough to be there when the clock strikes midnight head to the legendary New Year party put on by a famous Russian billionaire.
The ultimate super yacht party destination, this Spanish island is the place to be if you want to dance until dawn, witness killer sunsets, and hang around with the socialites of the century. Spend MY Starfire days being pampered to perfection, waterskiing out in the deep blue waters, and sipping the finest cocktails from the comfort of the aft deck watching those magnificent sunsets bloom. Those who want to mingle with the superstars of the moment will find most of them shining along the marina, hailed as one of the favorite millionaire ports in the seven seas. You can catch rich girls careening around the coast on their Jet Skis, you can relax on the sands with famous movie stars, and you can kick back in the pretty and wild Cipriani restaurant. When the moon rises this is your chance to go and throw down shapes at the Privilege Club.
Super yachts, white sands, and effortless blue bliss – there’s something about the easy breezy beauty of Barbados that simply keeps on calling. For those in the know this is where one the top pop stars came from, it’s also where you can drink your weight in rum cocktails, dive from the swim platform of MY Starfire into the turquoise arms of the big blue, and stay up late counting stars in the sky and falling in love with the good life once more. If you want to indulge in a first class spa experience then the famously quaint Sandy Lane should be calling. Golf lovers can also tee off alongside world-champions.
