Her interior and exterior design has been created by the well regarded London based design studio Reymond Langton Design. Mogambos experienced crew will ensure to create a tailor-made holiday to remember. Amongst the crew there are two important gures. Captain Philip Walsh has a sense of adventure that matches the spirit of Mogambo. Commanding this exceptional vessel and managing the highly skilled and friendly crew Philip is dedicated to providing excellence on every charter. Ever since his youth growing up in Sydney with its world- class harbour the ocean has been part of Philips life. For three decades he has operated both private and charter vessels worldwide and has maintained a superb level of safety and security as a professional superyacht Captain. Over the years he has gained exceptional knowledge of varied destinations with signicant experience in the Mediterranean Caribbean South Pacic and even the Arctic assuring that each charter navigates to the nest and most beautiful anchorages possible. Dining on-board Mogambo is one of the many highlights of each charter. The creative force behind each bespoke menu to satisfy the most discerning palate is Chef Alexandre Correa from Brazil. Alexs professional culinary training encompasses international cuisines such as European Latin American and Asian including the art of sushi. With a thorough understanding of wines Alex is also able to pair his delectable dishes with complementary vintages for a genuine gastronomic experience.

Stretching from Tananger and Stavanger south of the city of Bergen all the way up to Trondheim the Norwegian coast has a unique geographical make. The outer fringes of sheltering islands adorn this impressive coastline and form a series of large sounds and ords. The lakes waterfalls and ords came into formation millions of years ago. Huge glaciers cut into the landscape forming horizontal waterways penetrating miles inland creating some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the world. You can cruise along and enjoy it slowly or challenge yourself with an abundance of on shore activities. The harbours are not crowded and you will nd only a few other yachts. The islands themselves are diverse and varied - rich in cultural and historical interest. The history of the area tells tales of the Viking Era and the shing way of life that is still abundant today. Experience some great sailing between the outer islands before entering the ords. Sailing in the ords can be quite tricky due to unpredictable weather shifty katabatic winds or dead calm conditions. Its a magical place where sometimes the camera just does not do justice to the natural beauty you will experience. We recommend you take the time to sit back and enjoy the serenity. Bergen Norways second largest city and lying conveniently between two of the most famous and interesting ords. Hardangerord which goes under several names winds its way northwest between low-lying landscapes and steep impressive mountains and Sogneord reputedly the worlds longest natural ord. Sogneord Sail up the western ord of Hjelteord passing Fedje and into Sogneord. Unique settings with sheer snowcapped mountains waterfalls and idyllic farms clinging to the mountainsides. After a full day of sailing and sightseeing you will end up and anchor for the night in Naeroyord narroword a branch of the large Sogneord 18nm long and 500m wide. This ord is included in Unescos world heritage list as some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe. There are several things to do from here. One being a trip on the Flam Railway one of the worlds steepest railways which will take you past cascading waterfalls and in and out of snow capped mountains. Time to head further north between some spectacular narrow islands and ords exiting into open sea at Kvaleim Island. This is more than likely an upwind beat A great opportunity for some open water sailing for 1-2 hours before making the last run inside the Helleord and into lesund. lesund We venture to the district of Sunnmre the centre of the lesund Region. It is a sea port and is noted for its unique concentration of art nouveau architecture. lesund for many is said to be as beautiful as Bergen but with far less tourists. Geirangerord Departing after breakfast we will motor through Geirangerord 24nm to see the Seven Sisters waterfalls and anchor in Geiranger a world heritage site. This is a great opportunity to leave the yacht and explore. Activities such as downhill mountain biking summer skiing kayaking and rafting are all exciting options on oer in the Geiranger.

The sight of Hyperion transiting the IJsselmeer marked the start of the ret in August 2014. During the winter months Hyperion has had extensive work carried out onboard. This includes a complete new paint job of hull and superstructure new teak decking replacement of saloon windows removal of one of the onboard diesel generators installation of a new shore power converter new refrigeration system overhaul of the HVAC system renewal of the complex alarm- monitoring system and many more essential maintenance works. Hyperion is scheduled to depart Royal Huisman Shipyard in March and commence re-commissioning and sea trials in April to be ready for departure to the Med in early May. Like any major ret the owner dened a tight but realistic schedule and budget. Thanks to smart pre-planning and onsite project management by Peter White Hill Robinson these criteria have been maintained without compromising on quality.

Located just 70km from Belize City near a small atoll called Lighthouse Reef this vast sinkhole measures 300 metres across and descends into a blue abyss nearly 125 metres deep. This dive is not for the fainthearted as shark sightings are very common. Divers regularly record hammerheads blacktips Caribbean reef and nurse sharks around the waters of the Great Blue Hole. Thankfully these species are not renowned for aggression and ignore divers although experience and caution cannot be overstated. Huge groupers are a typical and slightly unnerving sh species to nd as well as the prettier likes of parrotsh buttery sh and angelsh. This is one for any serious divers bucket list. Dont just take our word for it the legendary Jacques Cousteau considered it one of the best scuba diving sites on the planet. ...DIVESITES Charter Services 20900HRCharterNews2015_Layout 1 15052015 1000 Page 10 11 Prince Albert Wreck Honduras Another great site which is a must for serious divers is in Roatn the wreck of the Prince Albert. This vessel was sunk nearly 30 years ago and over the decades the 165 foot freighter has blossomed with coral species making it one of the ve best dive spots in the Western Caribbean. Qualied PADI Wreck Divers can enter and explore the interior whilst the exterior is equally fascinating. Squid southern stingrays and eagle rays are common sights you should also expect to see schools of creole wrasse and possibly turtles. Arrow crabs seahorses and a colony of garden eels also call the wreck home. A DC3 plane fuselage lies near to the wreck and is also well worth investigating. What do charter guests expect After 15 years of experience in the yachting industry from my point of view charter clients expect rst of all privacy and discretion. They want a professional friendly knowledgeable and discreet crew delivering the highest standards in terms of personal service from the customised cuisine and bar to the choice of itinerary and destinations. Every aspect has to be perfectly tailored catering to the guests personal needs and desires creating a luxurious and memorable escape. Charter guests look for an introduction to or refamiliarization with some exotic exclusive and unspoilt places they want to indulge in the worlds best azure waters chic ports revolutionary cuisine diverse cultures and history all complemented by each destinations welcoming population They feel the beauty of a charter holiday is independence and exibility an escape from daily duty. Charter parties are generally looking for two diering experiences during their stay To tender ashore to explore remote places historic sites or boutiques restaurants and golf courses. To be anchored in a beautiful bay of turquoise water enjoying swimming and using the toys. Every season seems to bring a new innovation in watersports equipment or some device for fun and adrenaline excitement. Guests are keen to have these on board so its important to be prepared and up to date. Likewise its very important to ensure the best attention is paid to the guests during a longer cruise transfer oering massages sauna spa jacuzzi or organising activities and parties if needed. Every evening all guests appreciate sunset cocktails or short drinks on the aft or sundeck after a busy day followed by culinary delights under the stars al fresco Toni Brok Captain on MY Pride Antibes 33 04 92 90 59 59 Ft Lauderdale 1 954 792 6112 20900HRCharterNews2015_Layout 1 15052015 1000 Page 11 The Mediterraneans leading luxury yacht homeport and marina village.
