240’2’’/73.2m M/Y Laurel for charter with IYC
IYC welcomes an impressive new yacht to its charter fleet; 73.2m (240’2’’) M/Y Laurel is now available for charter with the IYC Fort Lauderdale office. Undoubtedly one of the finest superyachts on the charter market, Laurel was built in America by Delta Marine in 2006, with a refit in 2014. Designed by Donald Starkey she pairs a timeless interior with a noble profile. Her standout crew of 24, led by the highly-experienced Captain Roy Hodges, are known for their friendly demeanour and are dedicated to providing an unforgettable charter experience. Laurel promises to deliver a charter like no other.
With elevator access to all decks, Laurel’s layout is simple to navigate. Large spaces and generous volume mean there is plenty of different areas around the yacht to enjoy. The main saloon is a very social space, with an interior style of hardwood floors, earthy-toned interior décor and beautiful artwork . The saloon boasts oversized chairs paired with inviting sofas, and a modern entertainment system cleverly concealed behind elegant artwork. A distinct dining space delivers a private formal dining area, with seating for up to 16; prepare to enjoy a memorable menu from Laurel’s talented chef. Natural light, and a starlight ceiling set the scene for sharing some special meals.
Able to welcome 12 lucky guests, Laurel’s accommodations are very versatile with an almost full beam master suite plus six guest cabins – four Kings, a Queen with single and Pullman – plus the option of a seventh cabin as needed equipped with two murphy beds. The grand master suite is located in prime position on the main deck and ensures plenty of privacy, with a service alcove, owner’s lounge and office suite – this entrance space can be totally enclosed if desired. Walk in wardrobes, a spacious ensuite with oversized shower, and a King bed ensure an inviting retreat. The master stateroom offers private verandas to port and starboard that deliver breathtaking views across the sea. This stand out feature is the perfect spot for enjoying a morning beverage in peace and solitude, or gazing up at the stars.
The remaining guest cabins, all ensuite, are located on the lower deck, accessed either by elevator or by the stunning spiral staircase with a glasswork backdrop that features an underwater scene. Four identical Kings means no one has to fight over cabins, with each offering the same spacious layout but with their own individual style and colour scheme. Families will love Laurel for her child-friendly setup. Children, or children and their carer, will appreciate the two remaining cabins, which are ideal for sharing, and have an ensuite with Jacuzzi baths.
Above the main deck, the bridge deck is home to the sky lounge which complements the main saloon as a second key space. Home to a more relaxed dining experience and seating, the skylounge also connects seamlessly to an al fresco dining area for 16, complete with service bar. This is a popular spot for pre-dinner aperitifs.
Up on the sun deck the observation lounge is a unique feature that delivers incredible views and is a private spot for small gatherings, whether a meeting, romantic meal or afternoon tea. Doors lead from the observation lounge to a private deck with ‘café’ and a granite bar to starboard. To aft is a full gym – sure to appeal to wellness lovers – plus a day head and service area. The exterior of the sun deck is where Laurel truly excels, serving as a true retreat on the water. Her guests can relax in the oversized Jacuzzi, or on the many chaise lounges and sun beds while soaking up the sunshine. For those guests seeking protection from the sun, Laurel offers removable sun shades on all exposed decks.
The beach club, off the stern of the yacht, is hard to resist and is a true hub for enjoying adventures on the water. With the garage door open, guests can dive into the water or take their pick from Laurel’s abundant water toy and tender collection – the list is so extensive there are almost too many toys to name. These include a 25′ Nautica Widebody tender with 315 hp Yanmar inboard, 22′ Nautica Widebody tender with 250 hp Yamaha outboard, two three-person Sea Doo waverunners, a 16’ inflatable trampoline, towables, diving gear, the ever-popular inflatable slide and so much more!
Laurel is an exceptional charter yacht that is the epitome of elegance and grace. She offers a charter experience that will never be forgotten.
