charter yacht OutbackManagement firm Edmiston and Company sends word that the 193-foot Austal motoryacht Outback is trying to "optimize" charter availability in the Western Mediterranean for July.

Outback's owner is now dropping the yacht's weekly base rate from €375,000 to €320,000 as long as you book before July 1 for any dates in July, and as long as you book at least 10 days total.

This offer comes two months after Outback dropped its weekly, high-season base rate (for July and August in the Mediterranean) from €399,000 to €375,000, as reported in the April edition of CharterWave eNews. Technically speaking, the current offer represents a €79,000-per-week discount over previously advertised rates.

Outback is a 2007 build that brokers regularly cite as ideal for water sports and fishing. She was named to our recent lists of 10 Best Charter Yacht Water Sports Toys and 10 Best Charter Yachts for Fishing Fanatics. She carries Jet Skis, SeaBob underwater scooters, Apollo underwater scooters, paddle skis, surfboards, multiple tenders with tow toys, snorkeling and scuba gear, professional fishing equipment, and more.

Any reputable charter broker can help you book Outback before July 1 with the newly announced discount.
