Interview with the Owner of Sailing Yacht Q: What Makes this Charter Yacht Highly Successful?

May 05, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

The highly popular charter sailing yacht Q was built in 2009 by Alloy Yachts.  Specifically designed for long voyages, Q provides total comfort and luxury to her charter guests and boasts incredible interior design by bespoke Reymond Langdon.  With lavish accommodation for ten guests and a variety of opulent amenities, Q has become one of the most admired charter yachts. What makes her so successful in the charter market, Roxanne Hughes found out in the interview with the owner of sailing yacht Q, Kim Vibe-Petersen.

Interview with Kim Vibe-Petersen, the Owner of the 52m Charter Sailing Yacht Q

Written by Roxanne Hughes of Breed Media

When Vibe-Petersen presented his latest purchase, the 51.7m sailing yacht Q, to the charter market, his intention was to inspire people: “People see me aboard with my family and how we’ve put our soul into this yacht and they say ‘Ah, I would love to do the same with my family’. We have become an advert for how the yacht should be used.”

Having completed a full interior refit, giving this 2009-launched Dubois design a new lease of life with Scandinavian style, Q has been quickly booked up and this summer is now back-to-back with charters.

“Myself and the family haven’t had much chance to use her yet! But we have a week or two planned – we may go to New York later this Spring, then on to Bermuda to watch the America’s Cup, but after that she’s straight into the charter season. When my last boat, Parsifal III, was launched, we had bookings for her a year in advance and with Q it’s basically the same, that’s seldom seen these days.”

Vibe-Petersen describes Q as the ultimate holiday home or summer house, highlighting her adaptability between blue water cruiser, regatta racer, luxurious home and even nightclub – recently illustrated at the St Barths Bucket where many guests partied the night away on the yacht’s large flybridge during the event’s ‘Yacht- Hop’ evening.

Q is an award-winning sailing superyacht that can accommodate up to 12 guests in five luxurious en-suite staterooms. Q’s spacious cockpit can be opened to the sunshine and breeze or protected from the elements with a fully retractable window system that encloses the area at the touch of a button, whilst retaining 360-degree views.

“It’s the joy of superyacht charter; if you don’t like the scenery today, you can make it different in half an hour – just move the boat to another anchorage. Move from St Barths to New York – go and see the Statue of Liberty, sail around Martha’s Vineyard, or go to New Zealand! Be wherever you want to go. Go around the world and take Q with you – she’s the optimal summer house.” – Kim Vibe-Petersen, Owner of 51.7m Q.

After three days of high-octane racing, the winners of the 2017 St Barths Bucket have been announced across the various classes, and sailing yachts WINWIN, SPIIP, WISP, ROSEHEARTY and KOO have each taken first place.

Of the competing yachts of Class A, or ‘Les Gazelles des Mers’, WINWIN and VISIONE proved the greatest challenge to the rest of the fleet and consecutively finished in the top three across all racing days. Although UNFURLED put in an excellent performance, NIKATA outmatched her on the second day of racing to push sailing yacht UNFURLED into third place overall with VISIONE in second and WINWIN in first.

Sailing yachts SPIIP and GANESHA were expected to provide a thrilling race in Class B and they did not disappoint in any of their matches, always placing between first and third with SOJANA or P2. On the final day, ‘Les Elegantes des Mers’ class rankings placed SPIIP in first, then SOJANA and GANESHA.

‘Les Mademoiselles del Mers’ of Class C proved agile on the water with mere seconds often determining the difference between second and third place. In the final standings, WISP was first, with REBECCA and AXIA taking second and third respectively.

Arguably one of the most aniticipated classes in the whole event, Class D, ‘Les Grandes Dames des Mers’, saw some of the world’s largest yachts compete for a first place in the 30th St Barths Bucket. Superyacht MALTESE FALCON built by Perini Navi competed against younger sister ROSEHEARTY, and it was the latter that took first place, followed by METEOR AND PERSEUS^3.

In the newly created ‘Les Voiles Blanche’ class, or Class E, sailing yacht KOO earned first place, with Q and ESCAPADE filling up the other podium positions.

Luxury Yacht Charter Experience in Details: aboard M/Y Bina in St Maarten and St Barths

February 14, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

People around the world adore and admire superyachts, especially when it comes to unforgettable yacht charter experience. Have you ever wondered how a perfect day on a luxury superyacht would look like? We bring you all the insights into the world of luxury yachting aboard CHARTER YACHT BINA in St Maarten and St Barths, one of the most luxurious destinations in the Caribbean. Get inspired!

 Aboard Luxury Superyacht Bina: St Barths & St Maarten Charter Experience

Stepping aboard 43m Bina in St Maarten, I’m handed a cold glass of Champagne and settled into the comfortable aft deck sofas while my bags are unpacked in my cabin. It’s Saturday afternoon and we’re soon to depart for St Barths where we’ll catch the sunset and enjoy our first meal onboard. What’s immediately noticeable is the inviting comfort of this boat; each exterior space offers relaxed lounge seating, and the saloons feel homely with cushions, blankets and artistic decor.

Bina’s Captain certainly knows all the tricks, dropping the anchor in the bay of Gustavia in perfect timing for us to watch the clouds turn pink over the island and the sun to blaze the horizon a fiery orange.

Having freshened up in my ensuite cabin, with a beautifully appointed bathroom that surpasses many of the finest hotels, we sat for dinner al fresco on the upper aft deck. This spot was a key part of the extensive refit work, repositioning the tender from this area to forward on the bow, thus creating space for a 12-seat dining table and sofa arrangement.

Five courses of dinner later, with the culinary skills of Bina’s Chef truly showcased and enjoyed – including a pasta parmesan prepared at the table for us in the parmesan wheel itself, and a chocolate sphere which melted away under a hot chocolate sauce to reveal the treats inside, we retired to the saloon for drinks before bed.

My cabin was the guest twin. Bina can sleep up to 12 guests in her three full-beam doubles and two twins (all ensuite). The clever design offered more wardrobe and storage space than my home bedroom, and the lighting, air con & window blinds were easily controlled at the touch of a button.

Whilst we slept, the boat was repositioned to Shell Beach, a bay around the other side of Gustavia port. Waking up in new surroundings is one of the great pleasures yacht charter offers. I rose early, unable to bear missing out on a single minute of sunshine and luxury, and sure enough, there’s the smiling crew ready to greet me – coffee poured and a breakfast buffet ready to go.

Anchored here, close to the beach, the yacht’s ‘toys’ were unpacked – an inflatable slide, jet ski, stand-up paddle boards and Flyboard jetpack were all laid out for our enjoyment. Bina has a ladder that extends down from her swim platform, enabling for easy access to and from the water, and enjoying these water toys under the watchful eye of the crew, I was confident our group’s fun antics were safely overseen.

Having worked up an appetite, we were tendered ashore for lunch – to a restaurant right there on the beach, ‘Shellona’. This casual St Barths bistro has an air of effortless chic; feet in the sand, lobster on your plate, rose in your glass and a view of your superyacht is hard to beat.

While ashore, we made the most of St Barths’ array of stores, which encompass everything from Chanel to beachwear boutiques. It’s a spot popular with celebrities, models and the jet-set, but the streets here feel paved with an understated glamour, as opposed to glittering gold. You never know who may be stood next to you at the counter in Lolita Jaca (one of my favourite stores), but an understated nod that you both know the secrets of St Barths is all that’s called for.

Bina had now been brought into Gustavia harbour and was on the dock awaiting our return. Berthed alongside several other superyachts, Bina stood out for her aesthetic proportions and tasteful, easy styling.

We took to the top deck – Bina’s ‘sky lounge’ to take in the view from the Jacuzzi with a late afternoon cocktail in hand. Pleased with our sun-kissed skin and laughing over those falls from the Flyboard jetpack and excitement earlier in the day, we can only conclude that yacht charter aboard Bina offers all the finest things in life; great food, good company, and a front-row seat to the sunset of your choosing.

Our very experienced brokers have a lot to offer regarding specific experience, advocacy and advice for charterers or new to yacht charter, before and during their booking and holiday.

Best Celebrity Watching Spots for Superyacht Charters

March 01, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

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.

SUPERYACHT STARFIRE

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.
