West Nautical is proud to announce that one of its charter central agencies, M/Y Lady Amanda, is now accepting Bitcoin as payment for charter fees.
Launched in 2009, Bitcoin is a decentralised cryptocurrency and currently, one bitcoin is worth £24,390.83. With this high worth, it was only a matter of time before Bitcoin found its way into the superyacht industry.
Built in 2006 by Couach, 30-metre motor yacht Lady Amanda offers impressive leisure and entertainment facilities and a comfortable, luxurious onboard experience following her 2021 refit.
Lady Amanda’s impressive leisure and entertaining facilities have made her a well-known and popular fixture on the charter scene. Her owner is particularly passionate about water sports; therefore, Lady Amanda boasts a selection of toys better than that of many 45-metre yachts.
Lady Amanda is able to accommodate 10 guests in four ensuite cabins, across a full beam master suite, a queen and two doubles with a Pullman each. The classic interior from Franck Reynaud is light and inviting, with calming neutral whites and polished woods the dominant theme. A comfortable saloon with easy access to the outdoors creates a sociable space. The yacht also boasts impressive outdoor deck space that includes several lounging and dining areas across the aft deck, foredeck and large flybridge, and sun pads on the foredeck and a jacuzzi on the flybridge.
With an impressive cruising speed of 26 knots and maximum speed of 30 knots, Lady Amanda is able to cruise between locations in comfort and style, enabling guests to experience a large area of coastline in a short space of time, perfect for those who want to explore places ashore as well as enjoy the yacht’s amenities.
A wonderful crew of four ensures smooth running and a memorable guest experience. Although still young, captain Ashley has accumulated over 12 years’ experience in the yachting industry already, across multiple boats up to 60-metres. Fastidious in his approach to onboard welfare and safety, Lady Amanda is a first-class charter yacht. Captain Ashley himself says: "The safety and training of this crew and vessel are only matched by the amount of fun and games offered to the guests on board."
The yacht is currently based in Cannes, France and is available to charter in the Western Mediterranean.
