Rather than rest after a holiday weekend of consumption - or even participate in#GivingTuesday - a new app is offering a quick way to spend more money on travel in one place then ever before.
The app is from Yachting Partners International, a yacht broker now expanding into a mobile search offering for purchasing and chartering superluxe yachts.
The well-designed app is a fun dream machine, offering a quick search of the 49 superyachts for sale by the company alongside an easy scroll of the 205 superyachts currently listed for charter. Each yacht has a full complement of drool-worthy pictures, as well as deeper specifications on
There's Martha Ann, which can fit 12 guests on its 70 meters for a mean Euro 600,000 per week. Or for the more value-conscious, classy Lady Lola can be had for 10 guests on 62 meters for Euro 290,000. For the user interested in booking, the app offers either a direct line to each yacht's designated broker or a contact form to register interest in a future charte.r
The app features a "Yachts Around Me" feature, which the company claims is the world's first interactive yacht search feature. It allows users to see nearby yachts, and learn more about them - and whether they are available for charter or for sale.
An expanded level of content is also available for download, which details more about the available yachts, destinations, and itineraries in a yacht charter guide.
At the time of this writing, the app didn't populate any yachts - but rest assured, we'll keep a watchful eye on the closest superyachts. The only thing missing at this point is a P2P functionality to connect well-heeled individuals to a random ride with strangers...stay tuned.
