It’s better in the Bahamas!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Visit the 700 islands in the Atlantic Ocean to go scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding on the beach, swim with the pigs or just soak up the sun. Smell the crisp air, feel the warm sun on your back.

As your toes sink through the sand, you may hear some Calypso, Soca, Junkanoo and Rake and scrape, which are types of music heard on the island. You also could hear some islanders speaking English, but it may not sound familiar.

Even though the official language is English, the dialect and slang could be hard to understand but not impossible. Bahamians tend to speak very fast but they are very friendly and helpful to tourists.

Interesting Fact: In English, the Bahamas is one of only two countries whose self-standing short name begins with the word “the”, along with the Gambia.

Plan on visiting the Bahamas? Forget the hotel.

BELOW IS A STATEMENT FROM A RECENT CHARTER

COMMENTS FROM FEB 7-14, 2016 CHARTER: DAY 3: Thanks for checking. The weather has not been great to say the least, however, in as much as I would like to say we are making the best of it, it is indeed the amazing crew  that is undeniably making this trip a fabulous experience. I will tell you when I return all about the many amazing ways they have offset the weather and incredibly making this voyage extraordinary, above and beyond any of our expectations !” DAY 5: Just a quick update on our Exuma adventure that is coming to an end. The weather continues to be on the wrong side of the barometer for us, but as each degree of temperature drops , the crew steps up and exceeds any possible and imaginable expectations! I have been blessed in life to experience some of the best this world have to offer, but rarely this genuine level of concern, care and professionalism. Just thought I’d share that with you! END OF CHARTER: “Hope that you are having a great Valentine’s weekend. We have left heavy hearted after an amazing week (except for the weather). All went very well, and as I stated in my emails to you, the crew performed miracles to make this voyage memorable for us. Please forward my most sincere gratitude to all involved to have made this trip fantastic. You may use any of my statements to promote chartering, as each compliment is an understatement of how great this voyage was.

Rybovich Expanding

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The superyacht fleet keeps expanding in size. Rybovich is in the process of dredging the east facing dock on its marina. This will increase the marina’s deep draft dock space by 140m. After this expansion, more dredging will occur at the north yard service facility.

SuperyachtNews.com speaks to Francois van Well, vice president of business development at Rybovich, “The land space we have there is three times the size of what we now use for the out-of-water works, so this will enable us to tailor the Service Facility to market demands,” says van Well.

There is a momentum going for plans and permits for a new basin capable of handling a further six 100m superyachts, though there is not an exact date set.

There are currently already three owners that are looking at Rybovich marina for the base of their large yacht.

If building or refitting a yacht is of interest to you, Palm Beach Yachts International offers an in-house yacht project management division. Offering practical experience gained during the custom yacht construction and refitting of a variety of boats and a comprehensive knowledge of shipyards, vendors and contractors, the yacht project management team will be an invaluable asset to you throughout the process of a custom yacht construction or a refit.

Learn about the inspiration of the origin of the theory of evolution.
Darwin visited the Galápagos Islands, which inspired his theory of evolution. The islands are a province of Ecuador. The volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean is about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain inhabits a wide variety of plants and animals, many of them found nowhere else, making Galápagos Islands the leading destination for wildlife-viewing.
