A quick flight to Bermuda can get you in the thick of the action, watching the racing 'in real life', especially if you're a guest of Rosewood Tucker's Point or their neighboring Harbour Court Villas, positioned on Castle Harbour and the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The luxury resort has chartered the Mariner III Spectator Yacht each race day.
If you love sailing's double facets: a rich tradition of teak and white sailcloth on the one hand, and cutting edge technology on the other, this is the race experience for you. The stylish and sophisticated spectator yacht evokes a golden age of marine lifestyle. Built in 1926, The Mariner III features rich varnished teak, gleaming brass and hand-crafted bevelled lead crystal windows from Paris, a large, open upper deck perfect for spectating and small aft deck with a bar for intimate dining or cocktails. Outside, a large open air deck includes a Bimini for shade.
The 122 foot-long motor yacht's large open deck offers unparalleled viewing of the high tech yachts being put through their paces on the racecourse. Each race morning, the yacht departs from the Harbour Beach dock and returns in the late afternoon following the completion of the races. Up to 80 guests of the resort each day can buy a ticket to join the yacht for exclusive access to the race course from the Superyacht area in Bermuda’s Great Sound, while enjoying sunshine, cocktails and cuisine by the hotel’s executive chef. Ticket prices include complimentary lunch, snacks, wine, prosecco and beer.
Land lubber or sailor, this will be the maritime experience of a lifetime.
