The Marinetti Fleet
Marinetti has a range of quality superyachts ranging in size from 84´ - 150´ located in the world’s most beautiful locations. These include both luxury motor yachts and catamarans capable of accomodating up to 12 guests. The following is an example of the type of yachts that are available.
Moonen motor yachts
Marinetti has formed a partnership with Moonen Shipyards, the award-winning Dutch manufacturer of ‘pocket superyachts’.
The award-winning Moonen 97´ steel-hulled long range displacement yacht is fully equipped with safety, comfort and adventure in mind and has ample accommodation for 6-8 guests in four double/twin berths including the owner’s master suite. The crew quarters are separate from the guest accommodation.
This yacht is ideally suited to accommodate a large family, or could be shared by two families, or a group of friends who could share the costs between them.
The yacht has fuel tanks with a capacity of 27,000 litres giving it a range of over 4,000nm, and zero-speed stabilizers ensuring a minimum of movement at anchor. It has a transom with bathing platform and single or twin hydraulic cranes to make tender deployment as routine as possible. The yacht is approved by Lloyd’s Register and with MCA certification it has the safety and environmental features to make it ideal for private holiday use.
Marinetti has recently announced plans for the deployment of its exclusive new 84´ 8-berth high-speed aluminium motoryacht. This new yacht will be capable of reaching 25 knots and will have an exceptional range, enabling it to cruise much further than vessels of an equivalent size and speed.
Ocean Explorer C-60 Catamaran
The ‘Ocean Explorer C-60’ is an exciting new ocean-going catamaran designed by the renowned naval architects German Frers and built by Ocean Quality Systems Ab Oy in Finland.
The ‘Ocean Explorer’ is an adventure experience which the whole family can enjoy and participate in. Infinite sail and solar power makes the Ocean Explorer an attractive proposition for long distance cruising at minimal cost. The boat is fully equipped with safety and comfort in mind. It has a safe and stable platform and doesn’t ‘heel’; it has minimum draft enabling it to cruise the shallow waters of the reefs and islands, and its advanced composite structure makes it virtually unsinkable.
There are two large en-suite cabins per hull, while the spacious saloon and galley can be integrated with the aft cockpit on the same level for safety and comfort. The whole yacht is light and airy with a modern minimalist design.
This innovative catamaran blends a striking deck design with an efficient hull, full draft pivoting rudder, low draft keel and curved dagger boards for a great upwind performance and control. The helmsman has a clear view from the steering position and is next to the sail controls for ease of operation.
“The new Ocean Explorer C-60 is ingenious in its simplicity and combines comfort and quality with the latest environmental and eco-friendly technology solutions.”…German Frers.
The yachts are located at our two operational bases in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Other locations are also under consideration. This provides us with complete flexibility and all year round availability.
Yacht racing regattas
Many of our clients have expressed an interest in participating in a major international yacht racing regatta either to entertain family and friends or as a corporate event. Given our yacht racing heritage*, Marinetti is creating a ‘yacht regatta vacation experience’ which combines a shore based villa with a state of the art Maxi Swan ocean racing yacht. Marinetti will manage and crew the yacht which will be entered in a series of premier International racing regattas around the world including Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, Antigua Week and the Swan and Maxi Rolex Gold Cup.
This is the ultimate vacation experience; a chance in a lifetime to participate in the competitive world of luxury ocean racing at a fraction of the cost of buying and operating a new racing yacht. Experience the thrill and excitement of going ‘head to head’ with the world’s best yachtsmen – and getting the tee shirt! Marinetti will organise the whole event in one complete package including the villa accommodation, yacht, regatta entry documentation and shore based parties and entertainment.
