We are delighted to announce M/Y Carte Blanche (ex Three Forks) as the latest addition to IYC’s charter fleet, listed exclusively with the IYC Ft. Lauderdale office. This beautiful yacht, built by award-winning American shipyard Christensen Yachts, will now be available for charter in the Bahamas for the upcoming 2019 summer season. Guests can relax and soak up the picturesque Bahamian surroundings, in the world-class care of Carte Blanche’s experienced crew of nine.
With a wide array of unique features and amenities, Carte Blanche is an exciting addition to the charter market. Fresh from a 2018 refit, and in impeccable condition, guests can indulge in her opulent setting and enjoy a vacation unlike any other. Boasting an interior by Carol Williamson & Associates, Carte Blanche features generous spaces complete with sophisticated décor including tasteful mahogany finishes throughout. An elevator connecting all the decks, and wheelchair friendly access, ensures easy movement around the vessel.
Ideal for large groups and families, Carte Blanche is able to accommodate up to twelve guests in her six spacious cabins. The full-beam master cabin, located on the main deck, includes a private study in addition to his and hers bathrooms with a solid marble Jacuzzi bath tub in the ‘hers’ bathroom. A full-width VIP cabin and four additional staterooms, all ensuite, are located on the lower deck and are easily accessible by the guest stairwell and elevator.
Carte Blanche’s guests can choose to relax from a multitude of spaces on board the yacht. Natural light adorns the main salon thanks to large picture windows that nearly run from floor to ceiling, making it a popular retreat. The yacht’s open concept layout with ample seating, entertainment system, and dining table for twelve makes it the perfect setting for socializing and entertaining. Guests can enjoy the talents of Carte Blanche’s chef, who takes great pleasure in creating custom menus and bespoke culinary experiences for charter guests.
Indoor and outdoor spaces connect seamlessly, ensuring guests can wander between spaces effortlessly. The main aft deck flows through to the main salon, and is home to a banquette table with seating, a bar and entertainment system and provides easy swim platform access for enjoying the warm Bahamian waters.
Another popular large guest space is the skylounge, accessed via the bridge deck foyer. Ideal for winding down, or enjoying more informal gatherings, the skylounge features a gaming table, L-shaped seating, a large television, and a sunk-in bar with seating for six. Forward of the skylounge is the bridge, which has guest seating and access to a popular Portuguese Bridge space and foredeck sunbed – both ideal spots for laying in the sunshine, or simply curling up with a book. Aft of the skylounge is an alfresco dining area for twelve, a wet bar, walk-around access to the foredeck sunbed/Portuguese lounge, and stair access up to the sun deck.
The sun deck is an outdoor hub tailored for enjoying the best that nature has to offer. Protected by a hard-top cover, guests can retreat to a shaded area in the midst of a warm and summery day. The area also includes a full service bar, BBQ, U-shaped dinette, sunbeds and an inviting large Jacuzzi. The crew can prepare a fresh, icy cocktail for guests to enjoy while in the Jacuzzi and taking in the views.
When guests are ready to turn up the fun they can take their pick from Carte Blanche’s impressive lineup of toys and tenders. These include a 39’ Invincible tender, Nautica Rib, Jet Skis, paddle boards, kayaks, wakeboards, Seabobs, a flyboard and snorkeling gear. Kids will be able to enjoy an array of towables and inflatables including the sought after inflatable trampoline.
Her vast sampling of spacious areas coupled with attractive features and stylish design, Carte Blanche’s charter schedule is sure to book up fast.
