charter yacht OutEdmiston and Company sends word this week that the owner of the 154-foot Amtec motoryacht Out is so keen to get more charter bookings this summer that he is not only dropping the yacht's weekly base rates by 15 percent, but is also willing to move the boat anywhere in the Western Mediterranean without charging the customary delivery fee.

Previously, Out had a weekly base rate of €175,000 during the high season months of July and August, and of €165,000 during low season months. Those weekly base rates are now €148,750 and €140,250, respectively, for 12 guests in six cabins.

Out is a 2002 launch that recently underwent what Edmiston describes as a "radical refit," producing a decor in the style of chic minimalism while updating the onboard technology and systems. The crew are primarily Italian, including the chef, who is reportedly well versed in sourcing and cooking with fresh, local ingredients.

Available dates to charter Out this summer include anytime between now and July 28, and anytime after August 11. Contact a reputable charter broker to learn more or to book Out at the newly announced discount.
