Televisions all over the United States will be tuned in to the Pro Bowl on January 31 and the Super Bowl on February 7. Both events are being held in Miami, where even the recent chilly temperatures were a lot warmer than those of the rest of the country.
So, why watch the big games in your winter clothes in your living room if you can do so in shorts and a T-shirt aboard a megayacht only a few minutes from the stadium? A few yachts are offering specials.
Caprice (above), for example, is being promoted by International Yacht Collection, as is Lucky Seven and Destiny. The 123-foot Caprice has dockage at Nikki Beach. Eight people can stay aboard, and there’s a bar conveniently located aft of the television and seating area in the saloon. For the Pro Bowl, the rate is $8,500 per day, plus expenses. For the Super Bowl, the rate is $9,500 per day, plus expenses. Both events require a four-night minimum. IYC recommends inquiring regarding the 112-foot Lucky Seven and 98-foot Destiny. According to Katie Wray, an IYC broker, there’s also the possibility of the 164-foot Wheels, but again, inquire for availability and rates.
International Yacht Charter Group, meanwhile, is promoting the 120-foot Sovereign. Twelve of you can be accommodated in her six staterooms, one of which is named Silver, the same material of which the Vince Lombardi Trophy is crafted. You can cheer or jeer to your heart’s delight in front of the 52-inch television in the saloon. The rates for both events: $50,000 plus expenses for three nights, or $85,000 plus expenses for seven nights.
Of course, your favorite charter broker can advise you of other opportunities, including ones aboard yachts in the under-100-foot size range.
