ANTIGUA LINE-UP CONFIRMED; RED SQUARE FOR CHARTER & LINDA EHRENSTRAHLE JOINS THE TEAM

 | 

It is one of the most effective ways of presenting client yachts available for charter in the Caribbean to our American charter colleagues and the American market. This year YPI presents no less than five charter yachts at the annual Antigua Charter Yacht Show taking place between 6-12 December 2013 at the Nelson’s Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, the Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Antigua Yacht Club Marina.

“By far the most successful way of ensuring our client yachts enjoy the maximum of bookings is to get the world’s leading retail brokers actually on board,” explains YPI Charter Manager, Alena Zilayova. “As a retail broker, the yachts you tend to promote the most are those you know the most about and invariably that means you have been on board, seen each yacht’s specific selling points for yourself and met the crew. Antigua brings the world’s top brokers together to see the world’s top yachts available for charter in the Caribbean for the winter season.”

AXIOMA (ex: Red Square) FOR CHARTER WITH YPI

 


AXIOMA (ex: Red Square)        Now chartering from EUR 490,000 p/w

One of the world’s most eagerly awaited launches of 2013 and the star of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, the 73m Dunya Yachts-built AXIOMA (formerly Red Square) is now available for her first ever charter season this winter in the Caribbean.

“AXIOMA is one of the most exciting new entries the charter market has seen in a long time,” says her YPI Charter Manager, Alena Zilayova. “She is brand new, unique, exciting - quite simply one of the most amazing charter yachts available today.”
 
Launched in February this year and sold during the Monaco Yacht Show by YPI Brokerage, AXIOMA was designed by Diana Scott from the Monaco-based Sterling Scott Studio with interior design by the late Alberto Pinto.
 
With over 30,000m2 of exterior spaces and entertainment areas across six decks AXIOMA offers every possible amenity for guests including a guest elevator with glass trunk, large wet-edge 'infinity' pool, health and fitness centre, cinema, Jacuzzi and bar area, impressive open gallery mezzanine, touch-and-go helipad and an upper deck dedicated entirely to the owners.
 
 
AXIOMA’s interior design is pure Alberto Pinto,” says Alena. “Using a mixed palette of reds, emeralds, blues, greens and earth tones to create a clean, spacious almost timeless, chic interior.”
 
 
Designed to allow crew to operate around the yacht without needing to intrude upon guest areas, AXIOMA sleeps 12 in six cabins including a full beam VIP on the main deck, two equal doubles and two twin cabins.
 
“She’s a dream for guests who enjoy watersports,” adds Alena. “With the tenders removed, two large teak balconies fold down over the sea practically doubling the original lounge and bathing area.”
 
Built for world cruising, with a transatlantic range of 4,200 nautical miles, AXIOMA can reach a top speed of 18 knots, cruising comfortably at 14 knots.
 
“I can think of no better vacation than to be one of the first guests to charter this brand new, potentially award-winning yacht in the Caribbean this winter.”
 
AXIOMA is now for charter exclusively through YPI Charter this winter in the Caribbean for an initial opening rate of EUR 490,000 p/w.
