There is a man out there in the world of luxury yacht charter who owns both a 150-foot motoryacht, called Vita, as well as a 136-foot J-Class sailing yacht, called Ranger. He offers them for tandem charters at a weekly base rate of $210,000, hoping that charter guests will enjoy the boats the way he does: fine dining and relaxation aboard Vita, and first-class sailing aboard Ranger.
I was thrilled to get an invitation from management company Northrop & Johnson to spend an afternoon aboard both boats last month in Antigua, where I enjoyed a gourmet luncheon on Vita followed by a few hours of sailing aboard Ranger.
Just today, I created and posted the following video to my site CharterWave, with highlights of my experiences aboard both yachts. Enjoy!
