LIMITED TIME PROMOTIONAL ACTION!! Charter a new, highly bespoke 50ft catamaran in the Adriatic from 2020!

Available on a skippered yacht charter basis, this is a new ground-breaking concept of catamaran. The „UPWIND 50 ECO“ will have a number of innovative solutions, not seen on production catamarans nowadays. She will provide extraoridinary equipment levels, sailing speeds and a number of eco-friendly solutions.

Built with aluminium, with added centreboards and hulls only 1,3m wide, she is expected to be one of the fastetest 50ft sailing catamarans ever produced for charter. Combined with performance sails, lifting centerboards, excellent hydrodynamic properties and with an exceptionally aerodynamic „stealth“ shape of the whole catamaran hull, she is expected to also sail significantly faster than the boats from Lagoon, Fountain Pajot or even Catana.

 

Layout and luxuries:
Special approach to layout provides 4 x large en suite double cabins and 4 x bathrooms for guests  ( with elecrtic heads ), all of which are almost identical and feature various luxuries.  With the salon located on the front of the boat , the sailors are afforded full privacy when at anchor or on a mooring in the marina or main harbour.  Those passing by can no longer disturb your private meals or converstions as you will be  able to have lunch, drink or socialize on the boat without any interuption. In addition, the 2 rear cabins have exceptionally large panoramic windows while also being designed with total privacy.

Total independence:
Thin solar cells (3 mm Sun Power) with a total area of 10 m2 are expected to produce 1 kW of energy each hour ensuring the boat is entirely self-sufficient ( electricity, water ) for at least 2 – 3 week charter holidays, allowing the crew to avoid busy and expensive marinas for quite an extensive period.

Equipment and features:
A large fly bridge with seating for up to 10 persons will be one of the most used areas of this boat.  One of the best features of the boat is the deck and roof which are all covered with synthetic cork ( 8 mm ) which allows barefoot walking in the middle of the hottest day.  The salon equipment includes 2 refrigerators of 300 liters in total, a 70 litres freezer, a dishwasher, microwave, gas cooker, electric oven, ice maker, 130 cm / ca. 55” TV, coffee machine … etc. Each cabin will have its own TV, mobile phone and laptop charger too. In addition, the boat will be equipped with a WiFi system, a watermaker (60 lt./h) and an air conditioning system.

The skipper or crew cabin is placed  in the hulls forward and is of almost equal size and comparable luxury. Thus „UPWIND 50 ECO“ can be compared with catamarans of 18-20m length (or more), by both the useable space as well as quality of accommodation.

UPWIND 50 ECO is expected to be available under the following terms and can be booked for skippered yacht charters immediately:
Low season (  from 26th Sept 2020 onwards):
4,750 Eur
Medium season  ( from 16th May  – 6th June and from 12th Sept – 26th September 2020 ): 8,500 Eur
High season ( from 22nd August – 12th September and from 6th June – 4th July  2020 ): 9,900
Peak season ( from  4th July – 22nd August): 11,500 Eur

Obligatory extras of end cleaning, local tourist tax and optionals such as SUP, KAYAK, outboard, WiFi , insurance deposit cover, skipper liability insurance or others are to be confirmed.

 

Charter rates and bareboat charters:


LIMITED TIME PROMOTIONAL ACTION on the UPWIND 50 ECO
The charter rates are between 20 -30% lower when compared to assumed competition of Lagoon 50’s or Saba 50’s.  Once the boat is launched, these will go up and be more in line of the quality and equipment provided on board.

The skipper fee is also low and only 120 Eur per day ( plus all food and drinks ). Similar catamarans would charge skipper fees from at least 150-190 Eur/per day, in locations such as South of France even up to 240 Eur/day.  If you are a typical bareboat charter client, you will also be allowed to plan the itinerary, navigate the boat and enter anchorages and ports under a light supervision of the skipper as bareboat charter as such is not permitted.  We can also arrange a hostess from 80 Eur/day ( plus food and drinks ).

Sailing itinerary:
Itinearies are so far flexible, likely to be out of Zadar or Sibenik region with ONE WAY towards Split or Dubrovnik available on request.  UPWIND 50 ECO launch date is 1st of April 2020, and expected to be ready for charter from 1st of May 2020.

Sale, Charter Management and ownership:
The production of the UPWIND 50 ECO can be ordered at a price of 785,000 Eur. The price will include full equipment and top brands: Volvo, Raymarine, Mastervolt, Pontos, Lewmar, Schenker, Webasto, Honda, Sun Power, Whally ….  The VAT would come on top of the price based on your registration but can be delayed in case the boat will enter a charter fleet in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.
