And the big discounts keep on coming.
Yesterday, I told you about a 100-foot motoryacht in Greece that has dropped its weekly base rate some 30 percent for specific charter dates this summer. Today, I have word of a similar discount being offered for the entire summer season aboard a 110-foot motoryacht in the Western Mediterranean.
The 110-foot Hakvoort motoryacht Spada is dropping its high-season weekly base rate by 26 percent, from €77,000 to €57,000, according to management company Ocean Independence. Spada's low-season weekly base rate is dropping even more, by 29 percent, from €69,000 to €49,000.
These rates are good for the entire summer 2010 charter season, anywhere in the Mediterranean. The yacht's owner, Ocean Independence says, is "keen to take bookings."
The Spada discounts are part of a continuing trend of yacht charter price reductions that began in earnest last summer, after the world economy nosedived. Just yesterday on CharterWave, I posted a listing of the 10 best current deals on offer, a listing that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago, when publicly announced discounts were as rare as two-legged foxes. And even in the current economic climate, it's noteworthy that Spada is offering such deep price breaks, seeing as how she is a larger, 10-guest charter yacht in the world's most popular charter location.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Spada or help you book the yacht at the discounted rates this summer.
