Superb 50m Feadship M/Y BROADWATER for Charter

The 165′ Feadship M/Y BROADWATER is one of the most exciting charter yachts available on the market. Broadwater has benefitted from a major 2017 refit to be presented for charter in fabulous condition, with a new beach club, a spectacular modern interior, and an alfresco gym and massage area.

Broadwater, 164-foot Feadship in St Barths

 

Originally a Donald Starkey design, the 2017 redesign of BROADWATER included an interior refit by award-winning young designer Adam Voorhees, who has created a modern masterpiece of airy rooms fitted out with designer furniture, silky soft grey carpets, and bright splashes of modern art.  Stunning interior features include the master bathroom with its striking white and grey marble and deep metal plunge bath, the unusual circular sky lounge, and the spiral staircase feature wall in a dazzling metal finish inspired by Japanese art of Omikugi.

The 2017 refit has not only transformed the décor and engineering onboard BROADWATER, but has added exceptional guest spaces as well. A sixth stateroom has been added on the main deck, an alfresco gym and massage space now inhabits the boat deck, and the lazarette has been transformed into a luxury beach club.

 

M/Y BROADWATER now accommodates up to 12 guests in six stunning staterooms. On the main deck you’ll find the glamorous yet calming master suite with huge marble bathroom and adjoining office, as well as the new queen-sized main deck VIP. On the lower deck there are two king staterooms and two twin-to-king convertibles, two of which feature extra Pullman bunks. This generous and convertible accommodation layout makes this yacht an extremely attractive charter proposition for family, friends, or corporate groups. All lower staterooms have modern ensuite bathrooms finished with marble, wood, and beautiful patterned floor tiles.

Out on deck there are some stunning spaces for dining and relaxing, from the aft deck lounge and bar to the upper deck dining table. The sundeck is a glamorous place for relaxing and partying with friends and family, with a bar overlooking the raised Jacuzzi and sunpad area, and a comfortable bank of sofas curving around the stern. Down on the waterline you’ll find the new beach club and a swim platform for launching off on the yacht’s watertoys or boarding the tender for shore trips.

Another exceptional drawcard of this charter yacht is the shoal draft of just 7’10”, which allows M/Y BROADWATER access to shallow cruising grounds and anchorages such as the Bahamas that many other yachts in this size range can’t hope to fit into. Carrying zero speed stabilizers, state of the art navigation equipment, and a fresh paint job including a striking new dark blue hull, BROADWATER is a brilliant charter opportunity in 2017. M/Y BROADWATER is available for charter in the West Mediterranean, Caribbean, and Bahamas from $260,000 per week.

Tips for Feeding your Husky on a Road Trip

Everyone loves a road trip, and with summer all around, you may be thinking of getting your car on the road and heading for an unknown destination, in search of fun and adventure. But your Husky is a part of your family, and of course, your furry friend will be riding shotgun with you. But feeding your Husky on a road trip can be tricky business if you’re not prepared.

You want your Husky to be as happy on your road trip as you will be, and feeding your Husky properly is key to a happy furry passenger. Here are a few tips to keeping your four legged friend happy, well fed and content.

  • Always carry enough water: You may be headed into a desert or a forest with no water source nearby. The last thing you want is to be stranded somewhere, with a very thirsty Husky in tow. A road trip is supposed to be fun, and you don’t want to be spending your last few dollars on expensive bottles of water that don’t seem to last. Carry ample water – keeping your Husky well hydrated means they will have regular bathroom breaks and healthy tummies.
  • Carry your brand of dog food: Your pet may be partial to a certain brand – ensuring that you have enough dog food with you will keep your Husky a happy camper. Feeding them junk food will not be good for Huskies, especially on a long road trip.
  • Keep food ready: Huskies are generally grazers, and they will always eat a little during the whole day. As you will be traveling, it may not be possible to keep a bowl of food nearby, because you could potentially mess up your car. But you can make periodic stops to make sure they have enough calorie intakes in the day.
  • Don’t feed them right before the road trip: Just like little kids, Husky pups can be prone to car sickness, and you have less of a mess to clean up if they don’t have food swirling around their tummies during the trip. Avoid feeding your Husky two hours prior to your journey.
  • Make frequent stops: Just like humans, Huskies also get bored on a long journey. Make a short stop every hour or so to stretch your legs and allow your Husky to do the same. This would be a great time to feed them and give them water to drink. These frequent stops are a great way of making sure your Husky is happy, healthy and definitely not hungry. Plus, letting them exercise will hopefully keep them tired while you’re driving – snooze time is worry free time for you and your pet.
  • Bring food to settle an upset tummy: It’s unavoidable, but dogs do pass gas and you really don’t want to be stuck in a closed car with your pet farting away to glory. You may think that’s gross, but that’s the reality which many people don’t address. Bring yogurt or canned pumpkins that act as great tummy settlers.

Places that you must see

A great way to spend your afternoons is by visiting England’s iconic structures that are reminders of the glorious past. Tick off the London landmark Big Ben, neoclassical Buckingham Palace, the rare prehistoric monument Stonehenge and medieval castle Tower of London from your travel bucket list. If you love the idea of walking among the trees, the Lake District National Park in North West England and Hyde Park in Central London will soothe your soul. One of the unique travel experiences in England is discovering over 230 ancient monuments on the Isles of Scilly.

Feel like royalty while holidaying in Wales as it is home to many castles like Conwy, Cardiff, and Caernarfon. Active travellers and adventure seekers must visit the Snowdonia National Park where you can walk, trek, cycle and set up a camp to eat & relax. If you wish to learn about the Welsh culture, then you could spend a few hours at the St Fagans National Museum of History and National Museum Cardiff.

Sign up for a guided Edinburgh tour that would introduce you to the top attractions of the capital city, when you are pressed for time. However, if you love slow travel then visit the Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland and Scott Monument at your own pace. If you love trying out new things, then Camera Obscura and the World of Illusions near Edinburgh Castle is a fun place to visit with friends. Another great experience is wine-tasting at the Scotch Whisky Experience where you can learn about the distilling of Scotch whisky along with a barrel ride.
