Florida Fresh from a comprehensive interior refit and systems upgrade, the 164ft Victoria del Mar has completed a successful debut charter season in the Med and will be available in the Bahamas and Caribbean during the winter 2014/2015 charter season.
Launched in 2006 from Delta Marine in Seattle, Washington as Happy Days, Victoria del Mar holds the distinction of being one of the most voluminous yachts in her size range. Her current owners worked closely with design firm Claudette Bonville Associates of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to create a contemporary and distinctive interior inspired by the work of the late Alberto Pinto.
Within her 7,500sqft interior, Victoria del Mar features a guest gym and twin VIP staterooms forward on her main deck. These staterooms boast 8ft ceilings with skylights above the queen-size beds, walk-in dressing rooms, and large en suites.
The master suite comprises the majority of the owner’s deck and features a spacious skylounge that is separated from the wheelhouse by stunning artistically etched slump glass doors. While the skylounge features mirror balconies that open to the sea, the master itself spans the yacht’s 34ft beam and features an expansive en suite as well as a large dining and lounging terrace that can be enclosed or opened to the sea breeze.
Four further staterooms – two twins and two queens that round out her guest accommodations for 12 in 7 staterooms – are situated on the lower deck and easily accessed by the main stairs or guest elevator. All staterooms are equipped with the latest in mini iPad-controlled high definition audio/visual technology and feature embroidered Italian linens, leather paneling and sumptuous carpeting.
A large spa pool, dining table for 18, teak-topped bar and 100in outdoor screen makes the sun deck a coveted spot for cocktails, al fresco dinners and movies under the stars. Equipped with a 32ft Century tender and 22ft Nautica RIB jet tender, Victoria del Mar boasts an array of water toys to delight every enthusiast, from SeaDoo waverunners to Sea Bobs, inflatable kayaks and paddle boards, to towed toys, water skis and a DJI Phantom 2 Vision GPS Drone.
Uniquely, Victoria del Mar offers personal concierge service to each charter client. The luxury concierge works with the client from the initial inquiry through the end of the charter and arranges all manner of services, from on shore dining and entertainment reservations, to private tours, VIP events and special onboard celebrations.
Victoria del Mar is serviced by 11 highly experienced, friendly and professional crew, among them certified RYA small craft, PADI, dive and yoga instructors. Languages spoken aboard include English, Dutch, French, Afrikaans, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. The talented Chef Jasper Somers received his training in the techniques of classic French cooking at The Hague’s Academy of Culinary Arts and boasts a variety of dishes, with a focus on light, healthy and Mediterranean inspired cuisine.
