charter yacht PandoraAthens Yachts sends word from Greece that the 112-foot Ferretti Custom Line motoryacht Pandora has a few specific calendar gaps that the owners want to fill in July and August--and that are thus being made available at a discount of more than 15 percent.

Pandora has a regular weekly base rate of €78,000. That rate is being dropped to €65,000 for charters in Greece from July 19 to 31, and from August 9 to 16.

I was aboard Pandora in 2007, when the Italian build was one of the first motoryachts of international caliber to join the charter market in Greece. Back then, she was charging a weekly base rate of €75,000, meaning the current offer is a discount even when compared with the yacht's rate from three years ago.

Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Pandora or help you book the July and August dates at the newly announced discount rate.
