Eleuthera is 100m Sport-Open M/Y by Azcarate Design, created to introduce a new level of super luxury yachts, designed to be unique, fast, with ample interior and exterior areas. Honouring the great Bahama’s longest island name, the yacht was designed to reach the low depth water in the beaches and keys of the Caribbean, and the most amazing places in the world.

The main idea was to merge a “sport-aggressive” looking superyacht with the concept of vast open spaces together, designing a project to enjoy at the highest level of lifestyle on a motor yacht.
Eleuthera 100m © Azcarate Design
Enjoying every inch of the yacht without any limitation was one of the critical features of the design, so the designer maximized the main areas to create large living spaces that allow guests to relax in another level of comfort, able to enjoy all areas of the yacht.
Saloon © Azcarate Design
The designer aimed for a lightweight superyacht, studying the overall design concepts of sports yachts of 15m to 22m and maximized it to 100m at the highest level, making it the first concept of its kind to be presented. She was inspired by the shapes of the marvellous creatures of the sea, heavily influenced by automotive design to give the aggressive and modern look.

The exterior design boasts a massive stern platform that transforms into a saltwater pool also serving as a beach club and a “touch and go” landing helicopter pad with direct passage to the interior Bar/Garage.
The vertical cut windows are designed to give a distinguished external look of gills which adds to the aggressive personality of the hull, complementing the unique reverse bow. This provides a perfect look-out to the spectacular landscapes from the main inside areas.

The main deck is fitted with a vast pool, lounge and dining areas also transformable into a dance floor and open cinema to enjoy the best movies in the open air. Double coloured anti-scratch teak and a unique anti-slip white marble are the main inserts fitted on the yacht exalting the minimalist design of the boat.

Two private staircases go directly to the owner’s 360-degree terrace. The long and clean upper deck has a rounded lounge/dining just behind the helipad. The helipad design has a hydraulic platform that can store the helicopter on a dedicated covered garage just underneath. The aggressive looking superstructure design counts with air intakes on the sides, a panoramic window dedicated to the owners and several wings. The stingray-finned Sat-com and exhaust structure give a strong personality as well as speed and aerodynamics.

The Interior Design Concepts where inspired by the ancient Greek Architecture. The main influences are the traditional arrangements, materials, and concepts of minimal yet extravagant monuments such as the Parthenon and Zeus temple. These concepts were taken and modernized to the best, resulting in a striking floating luxury temple.
With a unique partnership with the Italian Luxury Interior Design firm Turri, Azcarate Design can create the interior to the highest luxury standards. There is a massive living room with a monumental staircase that connects the 3 expansive decks, a party bar, the dining room featuring a grand piano and lounge area, owners private office with conference room and indoor cinema, a massive galley where guests can watch the professional chef create edible art or even cook themselves if desired.

The owners’ cabin located on the upper deck spreads over 235+ square meters of pure luxury. It includes a private 360-degree terrace, a private spa and sauna, an office and a make-up room.

There are also plenty of other warm sandy destinations to choose from in the southern hemisphere to avoid the cold for a little while longer – but to make your getaway break truly spectacular there is some important advice to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.
Kids Playing – Belize Tourism Board
Broad options with the best outcome:
Pick up the choice options before they disappear and book early to secure that perfect holiday. Sailing yachts and motor yachts with a fantastic selection of amenities – whether they be spa or fitness related or tailored to cutting-edge entertainment – and an incredible crew that might include jet ski and Scuba diving instructors and Michelin-starred chefs will be coveted within the luxury yachting industry.
Destinations also rise in popularity depending on the time of year, and Christmas and New Year is the opportunity to party in the beach bars of the Caribbean and Bahamas.
If you’re putting off making the final decision, make use of feedback and advice from an accredited luxury yacht charter broker for peace of mind that you’re selecting the best option for your group interests and budget.

Book very early for special events
Whether the event you have in mind is an anniversary or a holiday, it is essential to secure your dates at least a year in advance to avoid disappointment: Not only is it a case of securing your ideal luxury yacht, berths need to be booked and reservations for any restaurants. The popular spots fill up fast but if you’ve left it too late and still intend on going, then this could be an excellent chance to discover some hidden gems within your favourite cruising ground.

Not all ‘specials’ are equal…
In the shoulder seasons between the main charter periods, there are often myriad deals with charter prices offering such incentives as ‘8 days for 7’ or a 10% discount and all-inclusive charters are available year-round.
While there may be some room for negotiation in the low season, a superyacht is very unlikely to offer deals over the busiest ‘high demand’ charter periods when owners don’t need to offer any booking incentives.
It should always be observed that ‘if a deal seems too good to be true, it usually is’: Check for recent photos of onboard living areas and unless you have chartered that luxury yacht in the past couple of years with the same captain and crew, it’s best not to take the chance and consult your charter broker for the latest update on the crew situation and the state of the yacht.
Significant price reductions are also more likely to crop up after events such as the 2017 hurricanes or even the Zirka scare. In these types of situations, it’s up to you to weigh the risks against the rewards based on the feedback from one of our brokers.
Use an unbiased, experienced yacht charter broker
An industry professional is going to know how to sift the wheat from the chaff, however, it is important to select a company that does not work directly for yacht owners as their attention will be more on pleasing the owner and less on your own experience and feedback.
CharterWorld is an independent yacht charter company and member of the MYBA – Worldwide Yachting Association, offering professional services from brokers that have extensive recent and ongoing experience in the yachting industry. Several CharterWorld brokers have membership in the CYBA (Charter Yacht Broker’s Association) and both organisations are dedicated to maintaining and upholding worldwide ethical standards in the yacht charter industry before, during and after any charter.
Provide as much information as possible on your preferences
The more information you provide when filling out your preference sheet, the more your luxury yacht broker can whittle down undesirable options to present you with your perfect choice, from health retreats or water sports holidays to sailing yachts with Jacuzzis or extensive outdoor deck space for hosting your own seasonal celebration. Wheelchair accessibility and dietary preferences are also an important part of catering to your group, and there are crews and vessels designed to meet your needs.

After the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix many superyachts cruise on to the Indian Ocean for a second summer among glassy turquoise waters and quiet beaches far from light pollution and city noise.
Top quality restaurants, spa facilities, galleries and other entertainments are available on land, however, the myriad of diving and snorkelling sites coupled with your own onboard luxuries ensure that the only reason you might have to disembark is to join your chef in selecting fresh ingredients from local markets.
