Superyachts are the aspirations of many, it seems; and what drives those dreams? Is it owning your own floating palace or castle, somewhere you can pretend that you are free of outside influences? Have boat will travel in style and cruise the pleasure waters, wherever they are on this earth. At the Monaco Yacht Show it is all about watching TV on your superyacht (seems an expensive way to watch TV). The picture can be beamed onto hidden wall screens via ultra HD video. Discreet technology is the buzzword right now for the super wealthy who boat.
Superyachts Travelling with their Own Balloons
Invisible speakers, which look like other things, broadcast stunning sound. Wi-Fi courtesy of Project Loon by Google will have superyachts travelling with their own balloons delivering high speed internet at sea. Bluetooth localisation will allow big swinging dicks to swan about their superyachts and be serenaded via Bluetooth automatic connectivity. Lighting and ambience can be adjusted to the desired settings for the occupant. Systems redundancy (which sounds like some underling getting the sack), is actually a back up system when primary servers go down.
Your Yacht & Technology
If there is one constant in this world of increasingly rapid change, it is that innovation and boat design will always go hand in hand. Even if that hand may soon be robotic and the material it is made out of is carbon-fibre. The America’s Cup is like sailing’s NASA in many ways, a catalyst for technological innovation. Yacht designers are building ever faster boats to compete in events like the Sydney to Hobart and other big-time races. The materials, that hulls and sails are being made out of, are stretching the envelope in design and performance terms. These high tech solutions are making boats faster and able to do many more things.
Progressive Highway in Sailing
How you handle waste at sea is another realm, continually being modified and upgraded. Superyachts, now, have compressors and vacuum holding tanks aboard. Air filtration, UV treatments and biological solutions are coming online as well. Energy self-sufficiency is another progressive highway in sailing. Solar panels are one expanding source of power happening on boats around the globe. Wind generators are another means of self-generating power on the high seas. Water turbines are turning heads in this regard as well in the modern sailing world. Keeping your battery charged is now easier and cheaper than ever before.
Alas, the sockless boat shoe look has spread far and wide, and well beyond the shores of your local marina. Similarly, the captain’s hat, the Fiddler, the skipper’s hat, whatever you wish to call it, is more at home on Gilligan’s Island than anywhere else these days. Stripes remain perennially popular amongst the maritime crowd; and those wishing to evoke those French sailor’s and their sexy girlfriends. Nautical themes with boatnecks can make you stand out from the crowd, when it comes to casting off your anchor. Here are a few bright ideas, as to how to look like you own a yacht.
Dressing Like a Yachtee
Windbreakers, spray jackets, UV trousers, deck shorts, and salopettes can all suggest the maritime realm. The yacht owner is always working on his sail boat, so, remember to park your boat in clear view of your adoring public. Living on a marina makes sense if you want to give off the right impression. Otherwise, make sure you have your yacht on its trailer out the front of the house. Decorate your garden with sea shells, and rusting anchors as sculptures, to ensure that rolled gold nautical vibe.
The Wealthy Sailor Emanates Confidence
The wealthy sailor emanates confidence and success. Implants for a fantastic smile can seal the deal when it comes to walking the talk on the high seas. Nobody can resist the rare smile of the sea going captain. Do you remember The Ghost and Mrs Muir? Of course, this was a remake of a veritable movie, made in 1947, and starring Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison. The ancient mariner made more palatable by Hollywood in this delightful romantic comedy. Our ghostly captain favoured dark navy colours in contrast to the lovely Mrs Muir.
The Drunken Sailor
Laser therapies can help with that rolling gait and other problems with the feet, which long term sailors, often, fall prey to. The boat shoe and the Portuguese Fisherman’s shoe are all sensible examples of footwear suited to the rolling deck. Life aboard the ship, which sails above the swelling seas and the rapid current, is one of changing inclinations. Yachtees must be flexible and able to adapt to the rollicking waves in life and in love. The drunken sailor is, sometimes, wrongly accused because of his rolling gait. Dress for success wherever you abide, whether it be on land or sea.
All boats are not equal, it has to be said. There are big boats and little boats, and in-between boats. Personally, I have always thought boats are overpriced. That may not be a popular position to take, but I stand by it just the same. Despite this, or, perhaps, because of this, boats remain an attractive option for a favoured minority within our communities. Boats are for some a sign of their success to brandish in front of the world, “look at me, I’ve got a boat!” This is only the beginning, however, next you have to learn how to ensure that your yacht has the proper amenities.
Equipping Your Yacht with the Right Stuff
Let us confine our discussion to sail boats. You next need to ask yourself a few defining questions before buying your yacht. Are you going to do long distance sailing or just day sailing? Will you live aboard, if you are island hopping? Space becomes very important the longer you plan to inhabit your boat. A minimum of 42 feet is advisable for serious sailing. You can pay anything from a $100 000 to $500 000 for a yacht of this size depending, whether it is second hand or new, and what amenities it offers. Will your boat be built out of fiberglass or wood? Monohull or catamaran? Are the compartments big enough? How about the galley and the head? Ensure that your prospective purchase has the proper amenities to satisfy your requirements.
Customising Your Yacht
Once you have chosen your boast, you might want to perform some storage renovations, depending on the length of your planned journey. To pack food, or stop off more often, depends largely on the type of trip you have in mind. You can customise your yacht to make it just right for you. When you have limited space, and plan to live on your boat for some time, it pays to get things just right. For good health aboard, it is essential that you create the perfect abode for you and your partner.
Equip Your Yacht
Solar panels can be a great way to be self sufficient aboard your yacht. Plus, wind/water generators. Ensure that you have all necessary safety equipment on board, because once you are out there alone, it will be too late to run to the store. Equip your yacht with the right gear and it will ensure your safety.
In the bad old days, if you had a boat, and you wanted some eye candy action aboard, you would raid a coastal village or two and steal some locals. Enslaving women was one of the most lucrative angles in the ancient world. In fact, someone should tell those eastern Europeans that we don’t live in those times anymore. These days, you can access a modern slave market for models by contacting one of the many agencies who hire out good looking youngsters for events and trade shows. Tits and teeth are on display, as these girls crew in revealing swimsuits; and know their way around a captain or two. Here is how to hire models to board your yacht with you.
Rent Models to Crew Your Yacht
If you want to look good and impress clients or friends, then renting models to crew your yacht is the way to go. Models come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You will need to specify if you want your model to walk and talk or just walk. Some of them are bilingual, which means that they can converse in two or more languages. Bilingual, I said, not necessarily bisexual, my misanthropic mariner. Obviously, the talking models are more expensive to hire for your cruise.
High Sea’s Models
Sail in to Sydney this season and run up the Jolly Roger for a buccaneering good time. These high sea’s models, they can look good while being ethical in all the right places. Life is too precious to be lonely for too long. Remember the adage, do not sail alone. When the waves rollick and roll, and them swells churn and crash upon the deck, you want some support around you. Long John Silver, Redbeard, and all them pirates await your arrival.
Hoist Up the John B’s Sails
Furniture for interior design is another element to consider, when boating with the rich and famous. Don’t let the style side down with any poor choices, when it comes to decking out your yacht. Hoist up the John B’s sails and call for the captain ashore. Celebrity yachting with a bevy of near naked mariner models aboard can raise the most sluggish of masts. Aye, aye, Captain, setting staysails. Hire models to board your yacht with you; and here is hoping that seas remain calm and you make it back to port before the next storm rolls in.
