Luxury yacht BG, known as VALOR on the Below Deck Series, might be the most recognisable vessel from the Below Deck series as she featured in not one but three series. Memorable moments onboard include a salad ‘nightmare’, a back waxing and a medical scare to go along with plenty of partying on board. Motor yacht BG was built by renowned Dutch shipyard Feadship in 1990, and of course, received an extensive refit in 2015 before filming took place on board from 2016 onwards. Today, charter guests can expect the same gorgeous interiors, lavish outdoor areas and an impressive selection of water toys.
The camera-ready interiors from Taylor Hannah Architect are glamorous and easy-going at the same time, using a monochrome palette for a clean environment where the sense of light and space is emphasised. The formal dining area immediately draws in the with its glass chandelier and 120 bottle wine cellar creating ambient surroundings along with the rosewood table.
The main salon has plenty of plush seating along the port side for the whole group to gather for conversation and an aperitif before a meal, with a top-quality 47″ TV to entertain little ones while the expert chef prepares dinner. For top-notch entertainment, the sky lounge has a relaxed cinema setup with a wall-mounted 75″ widescreen TV and two L-shaped sofas for cosy group gatherings with friends and family.
Life on the water is all about connecting with the sea and the surroundings, and luxury yacht BG gives guests plenty of reason to leave behind the air-conditioned salons for the outdoor life.
The main deck aft is a convenient space to rest in the shade with quick access to the tender and water toys the moment they are ready.
The upper deck aft is the main outdoor living area and will see much use throughout the charter thanks to its large alfresco dining table and abundance of seating and sun loungers. The area can be shaded for all-day outdoor use and is the perfect place to return to and nap after taking the water slide or the climbing wall over the edge. Side walkways will take guests around to the Portuguese deck in front of the bridge, where there is a row of sunbeds with panoramic views.
Guests looking for the Jacuzzi will find it on the sundeck aft, a tranquil environment compared to the social hub below. The sunbeds forward allow guests to rest together in privacy, with sweeping views of the surrounding scenery.
The crisp and cool accommodation sleeps a total of 12 guests across 6 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins convertible to doubles.
The main deck master suite is a treat for the main charter guests and is ideal for honeymooners who relish their privacy: In addition to a king-sized bed, there is a plush sofa, TV entertainment, a desk/vanity to get ready for the next glamorous occasion, a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and two-person shower.
The VIP stateroom is adjacent to the Master suite and boasts its own king-sized bed, TV entertainment and armchairs to rest weary feet in complete comfort.
The rest of the guest cabins are placed on the lower deck, and two can be converted from doubles to twins to accommodate any children in the group.
