Got a spare 450,000 Euros for a week’s fun at sea?

 

Part of an endless succession of megayachts choosing Ocean Village marina as a regular port of call, 63 metre Polar Star recently took up temporary residence. Built in 2005, this vessel is available for charter for a modest 450,000 euros a week.

 

 

Part of an endless succession of megayachts choosing Ocean Village marina as a regular port of call, 63 metre Polar Star recently took up temporary residence.  Built in 2005, this imposing vessel is available for charter for a modest 450,000 euros a week – a mere 37,500 euros a head for a capacity dozen passengers – and she would surely offer the luxurious holiday of a lifetime. 

 

Originally built for a Canadian duo with the intention to cruise ‘off the beaten track’ (hence the ‘ice class hull’) Polar Star is now in the hands of Russian owners who generously lend her out for regular charter throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean.  Only recently dropping from the ranks of the world’s 100 largest yachts, Polar Star brims with elegance and decadence in equal measure. 

 

With 15 crew to attend your needs, Polar Star has six levels of interior and exterior space housing six en-suite state rooms, a gymnasium with bike and treadmill, Jacuzzi for ten, sauna, capacious al-fresco dining and lounging areas, jetskis, waverunners, kayaks, fishing gear, a dive compressor able to charge five tanks simultaneously and a brace of 30ft tenders.  Add a DVD and cd library plus plasma TVs throughout and the floating fantasy is complete. 

 

Brian Stevendale, Sales & Marketing Director for Ocean Village marina, comments, “Ocean Village is simply unmissable on the megayacht cruising itinerary.  Weighing up considerations of a strategic and convenient location, discounted fuel, a vibrant social scene and highly competitive berthing rates considering the cachet of the environment, captains and their crew will always see Ocean Village as a best-in-class port of call.” 

 

Daily rates for Ocean Village’s new berths with secure, gated and coded entry, start from as little as £15.50 for a 15 metre berth rising to £450 per day for vessels above 75 metres (low season).  A 20% discount is available for annual bookings when paid in advance in full.  Demand is high and waiting lists exist for certain LOA.  Pricing, reservation forms and marina layout can be viewed here – www.gibraltarberths.com
