An Adventurous Charter on an Unusual Superyacht | Lauren L in Patagonia

Located at the southern end of South America, sharing borders with Argentina and Chile, Patagonia is known for stunning views of the Andes Mountains as well as a landscape that includes deserts, volcanoes, glaciers and grasslands. Patagonia has two coasts: western facing the Pacific Ocean and eastern facing the Atlantic Ocean and this region guarantees an unforgettable charter experience for those who wish to visit an area of outstanding natural beauty and adventure into the unknown.

90m Lauren L is a most unique yacht. She has the classification of a passenger vessel so can comfortably host 36 guests in 20 cabins, and the seven star service and luxury fixtures of the world’s most prestigious superyachts.

Lauren L will be available to charter in Patagonia from January 8th in Puerto Williams, the southern-most city in the world. Here guests can enjoy trekking to the beautiful Cascade Los Bonces, visiting the last of the Yagan Indian community and enjoying a drink in the southern-most yacht club in the Americas at Marina Micalvi.

Patagonia has some truly wonderful natural formations; it is known for its numerous breath-taking glaciers, the most well known being Perito Moreno. On this adventure charter guests can enjoy trekking across ice fields, through wild forests and up traditional mountain paths. They can explore a UNESCO biosphere reserve often called the eighth wonder of the world; or choose to admire and share the view from the warmth and comfort of 90m MY Lauren L, or a helicopter tour.

Heli-skiing, horse riding, fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, stand up paddle-boarding and climbing are just some of the land based activities available. There are also options to visit local tribes, swim with whales, go caving, practice local crafts and observe the magnificent wildlife either on foot, ATV or 4×4 truck.

Lauren L has her own fully equipped on-board spa with treatment rooms, sauna and steam rooms. However charter guests can also choose to travel to the remote and exclusive Puyuhuapi Lodge & SPA nestled in a fjord and known for its rejuvenating thermal hot springs.

For guests who wish to take memorable photographs (or are part of the Instagram generation) there are numerous astonishing landscapes to experience along with unusual species of animals native to Patagonia. On land, herds of wild horses mix with water wolves, the llama-like guanaco, pumas, cougars, foxes and deer.

In the water spot a singing humpback whale or a black and white Commerson’s dolphin (also known as the Panda Dolphin), or even use Lauren L’s scuba gear or submarine and meet them in their natural habitat. Along the shoreline or in a cave, guests may find a South American fur seal, some Magellanic Penguins, or an elephant seal and his harem of 50 female mates!

Guests of any age will enjoy a charter on Lauren L. She has a soft playroom for keeping younger children entertained and extensive AV options for teens and adults. Lauren L also comes equipped with multiple tenders so smaller groups can explore different areas and engage in a range of activities at the same time.

Titan Fleet are giving charter guests the opportunity to explore rarely visited locations, visit isolated communities and see the stunning landscapes of Patagonia with activities to satisfy the wants and needs of any guest.

FunAir Yacht Joust

FunAir Yacht Joust – Be the Next Superyacht Gladiator Champion

Playing gladiator on FunAir Yacht Joust is simple – two competitors stand on top of a considerably stable platform that has a central beam suspended one metre above the sea/pool. They then take their joust poles and attempt to knock each other over in a battle to the splash!

Whether it’s fitness or fun you’re looking for you can find them both with FunAir Yacht Joust. Crew and charter guests can fight one on one battles or even team up and have a knock-out competition. Yacht Joust is engineered for all ages so it’s perfect for the whole family to try. Even better news – Yacht Joust is part of FunAir’s QuickShip range so it can be with you within a few days.

Glatiator Fighting FunAir Yacht Joust

There’ plenty of space on the 350cm x 50cm balance beam for adults and children to claim their territory and get their opponent into the water. Another great asset is that you can joust anywhere, you can tether the Yacht Joust to a location as it’s a free floating inflatable.

From small coves to the middle of the ocean you can secure the Yacht Joust anywhere for hours of fun. You could even set up the inflatable from the beach and attract a larger audience for your gladiator showdown.

It’s a short 30 minutes to set up the Yacht Joust, it’s an easy job for any crew and won’t take up a lot of their time. Taking the Joust down is even easier than setting it up and a great bonus – it folds up neatly to a much smaller size. You’ll always have space to fit this little yacht toy no matter the size of your vessel so there’s no need to miss out on the fun times if you have limited space or a smaller yacht.

FLIBS 2017

58th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show  Receives Buoyant Reviews

Eager crowds experienced an upgraded show and more boats on display – FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (November 14, 2017) – The 58th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), the largest in-water boat show in the world, attracted a world-wide audience of approximately 105,000 international buyers, sellers and browsers who came to see the latest that the global boating industry has to offer and to do business in the “Yachting Capital of the World.” Drawing visitors from more than 50 countries, attendance at this year’s event was up 7 percent over 2016. 
 
Buyers had a larger selection to choose from, with an overall increase of 4 percent in the number of boats on display in the water, with a 9 percent jump in new boats under 100 feet and 10 percent growth in the number of brokerage (pre-owned) boats over 100 feet.
 
“Informa’s investments in the show delivered a superior visitor experience to previous shows,” said Andrew Doole, general manager of Informa, the show’s producer. “Excellent weather, a robust economy, realigned marketing efforts and a huge selection of new product offerings brought energetic crowds to the docks and exhibits daily.”
 
“We were very pleased with the traffic at this year’s show and the overall feeling of optimism among our brokers and clients when the show concluded,” said Sally Doleski, vice president of marketing for Ocean Alexander. “New docks, clear dock- markings for those trying to find their way through an incredibly large location, and increased variety for food and beverage options all added to the enjoyment of our guests at the show.”
The 58th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show spans more than three million square feet of exhibit space in-water and on land across seven locations including the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel & Yachting Center, the Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Municipal Marina, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Sails Marina, Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Marina, and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.
 
“It was a tremendous show, with high energy, brisk sales activity and great enthusiasm for our new boats – the 93 Motor Yacht and the 44 Open – as well as all our other yachts,” said Patrick Healey, president and CEO of Viking Yachts. Viking sold 13 boats from 37 to 93 feet at FLIBS. The company’s 15-vessel display drew more visitors than any previous Fort Lauderdale show – more than 7,000 over the five-day event. The New Jersey-based company also announced that a new 68 Convertible will debut at the Miami Yacht Show in February.
 
Other attractions at this year’s event included Take the Helm on-the-water boat handling classes from Carefree Boat Club, IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars, the Blue Wild dive and marine art show, and Hook The Future kids’ fishing clinics. 
 
“The 2017 clinics were better than ever and drew hundreds of families eager to learn how to catch more fish and have fun doing it together. We can’t wait till next year,” said Hook The Future founder, Capt. Don Dingman.
 
One of the Windward VIP Club’s attractive benefits was the dedicated concierge team, Delmay and Partners, who worked on behalf of VIP passholders to arrange various services including yacht tours, local dining reservations, private transportation and other conveniences.
  
“The 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show brought an increase in visits to our displays and enabled us to enter into many strong negotiations and a number of sales,” said Randy Coleman, vice president of sales of Ferretti Group America. “Fort Lauderdale continues to be an important show for Ferretti Group as we see great attendance from our US-based clients as well as an increase in visitors from South America. Our South American dealers were very pleased with the outcome and recognize the importance of attending this show.”
 
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) contributes $11.5 billion to the region’s economy and supports the sustainability of 136,000 marine industry jobs in South Florida.
 
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show® is owned and presented by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and managed and produced by Informa Exhibitions. Sponsors of the 2017 show were Audi, Budweiser, LaCroix, RAM, Smallwood’s Yachtwear, TAITRA/Taiwan Excellence, Ulysse Nardin and Yachting Pages Media Group.

FunAir joins the United States Superyacht Association with premier space in new area of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

FunAir have recently joined the USSA and have the premier space in the new American section of the Superyacht Pavilion. American born FunAir can be found at the entrance to the new American section and opposite the USSA Lounge at booth 801.

The leading superyacht inflatables manufacturer will be showcasing a new lounger design, the popular Climbing Wall and in partnership with Oceanemo, the Sports Utility Yacht, a range of 3D printed replica FunAir products on a mesmerising digital display table.

Having recently launched the all new FunAir Playground and Junior BigAir Blob, FunAir will be meeting with Owners and Captains at FLIBS to get feedback on new products and discuss the next big launch in inflatable yacht toys.

A redesign of a firm family favourite, the FunAir Playground has a slide, climbing frame and leaving off point for a smaller version of the very popular BigAir Blob, which like its big brother has stabilising outriggers that stop it turning in the ocean, and an inflatable stand-off that keeps it in place. Friends and siblings can jump from the playground straight onto the blob and launch their partners into the air.

The Playground can be tethered to the yacht out at anchor, and also works as the perfect accessory for families when it is secured in shallower waters on beach days.

Standing 3.5m tall when inflated, the playground has non-slip material on the steps, comfort grip climbing holds and ultra slick vinyl. This eliminates the need for a coversheet and reduces weight and pack size. The Junior Big Air Blob is also made from commercial grade 1000 denier PVC with FR and UV ratings. Total set up time is just 30 minutes.

FunAir Announces Partnership with Sealed Air Repairs

FunAir Announces Partnership with Sealed Air Repairs Mobile Service Centre for Superyacht Inflatables

Florida
As the global leader in manufacturing inflatable yacht toys, FunAir continue to innovate and ahead of the winter season have announced a partnership with Sealed Air Repairs who opened a Florida based mobile service centre for all inflatable yacht toys earlier this year.

SAR has a mobile service centre that will cover the Floridian coastline offering to pick up your toys and make sure they are clean, dry and ready to inflate the fun, before dropping them back to the yacht. For larger jobs and when working on the biggest inflatables Sealed Air Repairs will collect the product and take it back to their headquarters where the toys can be laid out, inspected and worked on in a clean and secure environment.

The service centers offer a great solution for busy charter yachts who don’t have time to fully clean and maintain their toys, or superyachts about to have a refit who want to make sure they are professionally cleaned, dried, packed and stored before yard time.

In this first season SAR have reported that there have been a surprising number of simple maintenance tasks on the books. It seems there are many yachts that have favourite inflatable yacht toys that have sat in storage because they had lost a couple of D rings, or the guide ropes had gone missing. People just didn’t know where to go to get this servicing, parts and maintenance work carried out; but also didn’t want to throw away a product that had given them so much enjoyment.

John Courtney, MD of yachting at FunAir explained, “We are pleased to announce that Sealed Air Repairs will be our official service centre for the Fort Lauderdale and East coast yachting community. Their online parts store is one of a kind and very convenient for people who have misplaced accessories over the years. Their servicing is of the highest quality and we are happy to leave any maintenance tasks that the yachts prefer to outsource, in the capable hands of SAR.”

Mark Anastasia, founder of SAR commented, “ We are excited to be the first mobile service center for yacht toys and have already had an overwhelming response in this first season. From cleaning and servicing top of the range inflatables to make sure they last for years to come, to repairing some of the lower quality items that have found their way into the superyacht sphere, we have been extremely busy since our launch. “
