Motor yacht LIBERTY
50 metre (164’) ISA, launched in May 2011
Launched by the Italian shipyard ISA in May 2011, the year the company celebrated its 10th Anniversary, the 50m LIBERTY makes her world charter début this summer in the Mediterranean exclusively with YPI.
“She is an amazing yacht that we are very proud to represent for charter,” says Head of YPI Charter, Fiona Maureso. “Designed by some very discerning owners who wanted her to meet some very specific requirements, LIBERTY is one of the most sophisticated yachts, in both looks and technology, I’ve had the pleasure of representing.”
With huge volumes, impressive performance and a unique designer interior, LIBERTY can reach speeds in excess of 15 knots, is remarkably fuel efficient and comfortably sleeps up to 12 guests in six luxurious cabins. With a vast sundeck measuring over 17 metres featuring a large pool, sunbathing area and bar with ample seating and relaxation areas, LIBERTY needs to be seen to be believed.
LIBERTY is now taking bookings for charter this summer with rates starting from EUR 235,000 per week.
NEW USA REPRESENTATIVE
YPI is pleased to confirm the appointment of Susan Flammia (email) as USA representative for YPI working from her offices at the heart of American yachting: Fort Lauderdale.
“YPI is a part of the fabric of yachting,” she recently told us. “It is a company that has been there ever since I can remember and I am very proud and excited to be representing such a solid and efficient brand in our industry today.”
Susan grew up in Connecticut but soon decided to escape the cold and it was Fort Lauderdale that first introduced her to the industry that was to become a passion for her for the rest of her life. “I went to sea as a stewardess,” she explains. “Then my love for cooking led me to becoming a chef and that allowed me to work on some amazing private and charter yachts…I got to travel throughout the Bahamas, New England and the Great Lakes.”
When finally she headed ashore, Susan set up what was to become her well-known luxury travel company: ‘A Yachting Holiday’ in 1992, an adventure that not only took her around the world exploring new destinations in the Western Mediterranean, Caribbean, Croatia, Greece, Alaska, Canada and Tahiti but which also cemented her reputation as the person to turn to when looking for that luxury vacation with a twist.
“She is such a great asset for YPI,” says Head of YPI Charter, Fiona Maureso. “I am so pleased to have Sue now working with our American clients – they deserve the best and Sue is definitely that!”
