The Loon Flock: Two superyachts set to offer unforgettable charter experiences in the Mediterranean

By Steph Loseby   12 May 2023

With the acquisition of a new yacht bearing the same name, the owners of the renowned 55m (180ft) motor yacht LOON have expanded their fleet, creating a truly remarkable ensemble. Both yachts are set to make a splash in the Mediterranean this summer, providing guests with the ultimate getaway at sea.

The original LOON, a 55m (180ft) superyacht, has gained widespread acclaim as one of the most sought-after charter yachts in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. This season, she sets her course for the Mediterranean, and despite the summer season not yet commencing, only a few dates remain available for charter.

Led by the experienced Captain Paul Clarke, who has been at the helm for several years, motor yacht LOON will continue its legacy of providing impeccable service to her 12 guests. The captain has already assembled a multinational crew that will uphold the yacht's five-star reputation and is set to deliver a seamless and memorable yacht charter vacation.

Guests aboard the luxury superyacht will have the pleasure of indulging in an array of amenities, including two new tenders—one designed for beach landings and the other ideal for wake surfing. 

Additionally, they will have access to the thrilling FunAir slide descending from the top deck, as well as a refreshing FunAir swimming pool located off the swim platform and beach club. 

Captain Clarke enthuses, "This is going to be the main hangout area onboard. I can tell." He further highlights the convenience of the beach club's direct access from the lower guest cabins, allowing for effortless transitions from bed to water.

The second superyacht LOON

Joining the LOON flock is the newest addition, the 68m (221ft) superyacht, also christened M/Y LOON which was formerly known as M/Y ICON. Delivered by Dutch shipyard Icon Yachts in 2010, the yacht underwent an extensive refit in 2020 under its previous ownership where she was luxuriously fitted out and upgraded to offer the ultimate experience in comfort and amenities.

Boasting accommodation for 14 guests and a dedicated crew of 18, the yacht is now in turnkey condition for her upcoming charter season. 

Onboard highlights include her spacious retractable beach club, a large infinity pool and an abundance of deck space where guests can kick back, relax and socialize in style. 

The larger LOON has always been renowned for its exceptional watersports program, which will now be available on both vessels. Guests can look forward to thrilling activities such as kitesurfing, wakeboarding, e-foiling, and diving, facilitated by PADI-certified dive centers on both yachts.

With a playful nod to avian terminology, the crew and owners jest that the flock of Loons creates an "asylum" for those seeking an exquisitely remarkable charter experience. 

Following their Mediterranean charter season, there are possibilities of the larger LOON venturing to the Caribbean and Bahamas later in the year but for now, it is safe to say the LOON flock is set for an unforgettable summer filled with joy, adventure and excitement.
