International Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine - News  Coverage EXCLUSIVE GOOGLE NEWS by YV&C Lavish accommodations, state-of-the-art communications, and plenty of space for entertaining provide guests with the perfect mix of  business and pleasure. With the launch of the spectacular 280ft P/Y Annaliesse in 2004, Liveras Yachts’ director Kiri Kyriacou says his company has opened a new market in yacht charter. “Several years “ago,” he says, “we set out to design a yacht to accommodate 36 guests.” The result was an opulent, floating palace with an unsurpassed level of luxury. At a charter rate of $120,000 per day (or $800,000 per week), Kyriacou says the yacht’s leisure complexes and state-of-the-art business facilities are particularly well-suited to corporate use, though large families would be equally appreciative of her ...

Now that's a Da Vinci!

Poor Leonardo. After losing out to Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni during his lifetime, he still doesn't get the credit or recognition his work deserves. Finally, someone trusted their intuition, and bought a sketch which looked to him like a Leonardo, and, lo - it was! His $19000 investment is now worth $150 million: Now that's what I call reverse innovation! If you'll excuse me, I'm off to the basement to see if I have any Da Vinci's lying around in my art collection... ... (more)

A Rational Approach to Engine and Propeller Matching for High Speed Boats

The following paper was prepared by our President, Mr. Paul Bezzi, several years ago. We hope you find it interesting and useful.   Introduction.   I am writing this paper with the aim to help those deciding on which propulsion system to select for their particular application. The majority of yachts and fast boats are targeting speeds in excess of 30 knots. For that purpose, engine manufacturers, boat-yards, and propulsion manufacturers are increasing power, behaviour at sea, and efficiency. Very shortly, problems appear due to the lack of know how; the true reason of failure of performance… I propose to go step by step in the detail of a typical project.   1-The hull There are several types of hull capable of performance, and the best hull will be the one that fulfils the owner’s needs. In fact , most of the errors I observed during the past years were due to ... (more)

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Electric Vehicles 2012-2022 http://www.reportlinker.com/p0656783/Electric-Vehicles-2012-2022.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Clean_Vehicle Electric Vehicles - Seeing the Big Picture The burgeoning electric vehicle EV industry cannot be understood by simply looking at cars. Indeed, in the last year, only the electric car sector of EVs has lost a year due to the Japanese tsunami and badly delayed model launches and it has been particularly sensitive to troubled economies as well. IDTechEx has adjusted its forecasts accordingly and now sees cars as less than half the EV business by value for the coming decade. The EV leaders such as Toyota, Honda and Nissan make electric vehicles for many applicational sectors. Indeed, ma... (more)

Arabian Knights and Their Floating Palaces

Some of the largest, most opulent yachts in the world belong to Arab royalty and businessmen. Only one, Phocea, the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world, owned by a woman, is available for charter. Arab royalty and oil sheiks, like most Western elite with a taste for a lavish lifestyle, are fond of adding a megayacht or two as part of their big ticket possessions since they constitute the ultimate status symbol. A mega or super yacht is defined as a private luxury cruising vessel that is at least 85 feet in length. Some currently being built are surpassing 450ft! At one time a 75ft boat was considered large. Now even 150ft is seen as modest. The cost can run in the tens of millions of dollars, and annual running expenses can add an average of 10-12% of the yacht's value.
