Charter yacht WHEELS now participating in Yacht Carbon Offset programme

Fleet Updates news

By Katia Damborsky  27 March 2020

The 75.5m/248ft motor yacht WHEELS is now offsetting every fuel bunker as part of the Yacht Carbon Offset initiative, with the offset credits going towards a solar plant project in Mauritius. 

If you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint on your next yacht charter, WHEELS is the perfect choice for you. 

The award-winning motor yacht is now partnered with Yacht Carbon Offset. Founded in 2007, the initiative was created to provide a carbon offset service focused specifically on the needs of superyacht Owners and charterers.

The company has since achieved Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification, and offset credits from WHEELS will help support a solar plant project in Mauritius. 

By subsidizing such projects, you are free to enjoy yachting knowing that your emissions are balanced by equivalent savings elsewhere.

WHEELS will be available for Mediterranean yacht charters this summer. She was launched by prestigious shipyard Oceanco in 2008, and she is in pristine condition thanks to a recent refit in 2019. 

She offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in six cabins which includes an impressive split-level Owner's suite with a mezzanine-style office on the upper deck. There is another cabin on the upper deck that is perfect for auxiliaries, and four cabins on the main deck - all guest cabins benefit from en suite facilities and entertainment systems.

She offers an impressive split-level Owner's suite with a mezzanine-style office and plenty of natural light.

She offers plenty of exterior deck areas for unwinding and relaxing, with alfresco dining and lounging on the main deck aft, and a large sundeck with an enormous sunbathing space aft and spacious jacuzzi forward.

She also has an observation deck with 360 degree views and a large daybed where guests can kick back and relax.

Stepping inside, guests will find elegant Asian-inspired interiors helmed by Sam Sorgiovanni. The main salon features lounging and formal dining, with an aquarium centrepiece that's filled with exotic fish from all the yacht's travels around the world.

The yacht is ideal for those looking to entertain in style, as the main salon has the unique ability to transform into a disco area, with retracting ceiling and wall panels which reveal a light system and smoke machine.
