I know someone who just pulled in on the "Sycara" from NJ. Has anyone by chance seen it in the harbor?

Yacht Charter Description

reserve this yacht charter

Luxury motor yacht Sycara III is a superior charter boat which charters in both the Mediterranean & Caribbean as complimented by a fantastic and friendly professional crew. Sycara III is large luxury yacht at 56m and very impressively built by Oceanfast Yachts and designed by the late Jon Bannenberg. Bannenberg’s brilliant modern avant garde designs have brought forward new concepts, over settled tradition, and they are reflected in the many contemporary modern luxury yachts. Sycara III is the successful result of an experienced owner, yacht builder and designer working together and drawing on well refined and proven methods and systems. The yacht, while respectful of past innovations as a foundation also brings new ideas and refinements to life.

There are many materials that make up motor yacht Sycara’s luxury construction – the main material of her hull is steel (for strength and stability) yet she also employees composites for her super structure, for looks and performance. Her full displacement, and therefore extremely seaworthy, hull is very similar to another well performing luxury yacht, motor yacht Perfect Prescription. Although full displacement, the hull is relatively shallow and thereby well suited for Caribbean yacht charters the shallow passages and waterways of the Bahamas.

Sycara has been created with the uses of OceanFast’s expert in house interior design team (led by Craig Beale) and quality craftsmen to compliment Bannenberg’s overall architecture. The yachts beautiful interior can be described as contemporary and clean, with integrated neutral tones that produce a light and airy, modern and arty, art-deco feel. The yacht also has the strategic addition of art in certain places which interacts beautifully with the architectural space and interior design.

Her initial entry area the main foyer boasts lovely onyx floors and a stainless circular staircase which flows up to the next level deck. Her salon features reflective ceiling panels which cleverly add even more dimension to the already impressive room.

As with many contemporary luxury yachts Sycara’s electronic entertainment equipment has been cleverly hidden so as to reduce any possible interference with her mindful architecture and soothing ambiance. Her main lounge’s flat screen TV, for instance, retracts into the ceiling and the piano is introduced to the room from behind a cabinet.

Sycara’s powerful looking expedition style bow allows for a generous interior space forward of her amidships, and huge vertically windows, as disguised by the rich blue hull. The window design, with a unique abstract look, furthers the overall lines of the yacht. The main windows may appear to have form and looks as their primary concern, but actually offer excellent functionality and superior viewing perspectives, as compared to more traditional porthole or more horizontally styled windows.

Sycara’s novel forward deck provides forward seating, sun lounges and sofas for fresh air and clear views off towards the yacht’s destinations. This area is as large as the main aft deck entertainment area and accommodates those guests who have moved forward the bow in the expectation of a great vantage point to survey the unraveling vista.

A Jacuzzi is uniquely located on the top deck at the very front of the fly bridge deck behind a windscreen. Like Sycara’s foredeck, this area is strategically and intentionally positioned for a perfect scenic viewpoint forward. The three ‘high seats’ behind the jacuzzi offer the highest and best seated vantage points on the yacht, and function like thrones with their near 360 degree views of ocean coastline and sky.

Sycara’s aft deck features a generous wrap around seating area and spans the full width of the yacht’s considerable beam and includes a dining table which will easily accommodate 10 to 12 charter guests. A ceiling porthole/skylight is positioned directly above the middle of the dining area. Correspondingly her lower aft deck has a interesting floor mounted porthole window integrated into the actual deck under the second outside dining table and enables views to the deck below. Another outstanding feature of Sycara’s aft deck is her large wrap ‘around’ main outside bar which faces to aft. To the far rear of the aft-deck is a U-shaped sofa which conceals the yacht’s second tender (17ft/5.1m Nouvurania with 110 hp) and maximizes space and illustrates the experience and innovation of those who created luxury motor yacht Sycara III.

Charter Yacht Accommodation

Luxury Mediterranean & Caribbean motor charter yacht Sycara III provides 10 charter guests in stylish and luxurious accommodation in 5 glorious cabins. Sycara’s main master stateroom has lovely wooden floors its own outdoors sitting area complete with panoramic views astern and a study. The main master bathroom is nearly full beam width and features two showers, his & hers sink and a superior whirlpool Jacuzzi bath. The other cabins are 2 VIP king sized suites and 2 queens plus a further twin and pulamn. All cabins have independent electronic entertainment and ensuite bathrooms. Sycara’s professional and friendly crew are accommodated separately.
