The 194-foot Baglietto Vicky has returned to the charter market in the West Mediterranean, with availability after August 24 from Monaco, according to Ocean Independence.

Vicky is a noteworthy charter yacht because, when she launched in 2009, she was the largest superyacht Baglietto had built. She got a new owner in 2012 who kept her original name and re-launched her into the charter market, then decided to take her private for a while. It's not yet known whether she will once again be available in the Caribbean this winter, as she has been in seasons past.

Interestingly, even despite her substantial LOA and interior volume, Vicky takes 10 guests instead of the usual 12. Some of the space other builders may have used for a sixth stateroom belowdecks is taken up by a sizable foyer that features seating, a television and an aquarium.

Other popular features for charter include a full-size hammam and a touch-and-go helipad, which can be used for parties of 50 people or more at the dock.

The lowest weekly base rate to charter Vicky is €230,000, or about $307,000 at the current exchange rate. More information is at www.oceanindependence.com.
