Charter Yacht Crew Awards Recognise Superyacht AURELIA and More

Charter Captain of the Year Award: Capt. Rob Shelnut on Motor Yacht ‘Lady Sara’

Charter Captain of the Year is Motor Yacht ‘Lady Sara’'s Capt. Rob Shelnut

After a summer of hard work navigating charter yacht ‘Lady Sara’ throughout Mediterranean, Rob Shelnut was acknowledged at the event for his diligent service on board the 57m/181ft Trinity superyacht, delivered back in 2012. She notably exceeds the 1-crew-member-per-guest ratio, with 12 other crew members joining Captain Rob Shelnut on board.

Lady Sara’s shallow draught makes her ideal for reaching the untouched lands of the Bahamas, where she will head to for the winter season, accommodating 12 guests in 6 staterooms. Art Deco in design, her hand-painted murals, bespoke stonework and glasswork make her one of the more uniquely styled vessels available for charter, with rates starting at $322,000 per week. Her huge water toy chest is guaranteed to thrill guests of all ages.

Well known by her distinctive, Bannenberg & Rowell 1950’s racing-car inspired exterior, AURELIA has built a solid charter reputation since her delivery in 2011, on behalf of her high performance, well-appointed 87 sq. metre sundeck and noteworthy interior volume – offering accommodation for up to 8. A truly unique charter option from the rest, she charters at a rate starting at €105,000 per week.

Mediterranean-based charter yacht LATITUDE was honoured in the larger yacht category. A favourite amongst the A-list, Captain Paul Bickley and his fellow 12 crew members clearly get the balance exactly right when it comes to accommodating a fun yet efficient charter vacation.

A 2008 delivery from Benetti, 52m/171ft LATITUDE boasts amenities including a large sundeck Jacuzzi, fully-equipped gym, an extensive water toy chest and an all-access elevator, connected to her 6 staterooms - able to accommodate up to 12 guests.
