Camper & Nicholsons International sends word that the 155-foot Sunseeker Arados is offering a deal on charters from the South of France in September.
The regular weekly base rate to charter Arados is about $261,500. The incentive rate that was just announced is about $203,300.
Arados launched in 2014 as the first hull of the Sunseeker 155 Yacht, which was the largest-ever Sunseeker model, discontinued in 2016. (The 131 Yacht is Sunseeker’s biggest offering today.) The original name of Arados was Blush, and her first owner was Formula 1 team owner Eddie Jordan. He sold her in 2017 for an undisclosed amount, though the asking price was the equivalent of about $15 million today.
Sunseeker built a number of top-end features into Arados. She has a full-beam master suite with a balcony, additional balconies on the main and upper decks, a beach club at her stern (a first for any Sunseeker model), and a sundeck with a hot tub. The interior décor is art deco.
The yacht accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms overall. She began chartering almost immediately after her launch, including at see-and-be-seen events such as the Monaco Grand Prix.
Today, Arados has a Spanish charter license, which means itineraries can be booked from the Balearic Isles straight across the West Mediterranean to Italy.
Will the owner of Arados consider charter itineraries of less than a week? Yes, and that’s unusual in the West Mediterranean. There’s often a one-week minimum aboard charter yachts of this size and caliber.
