Motor Yacht

Air has an exceptionally sleek and elegant exterior with modern lines, while also incorporating a distinctive Feadship flared bow. She is the first superyacht built under Annex 2 of LY2 to have a fully certified commercial helicopter pad. This requirement represented a major challenge in terms of styling, and the designers at De Voogt Naval Architects have achieved something very special indeed by ensuring that Air’s elongated aft deck remains in perfect proportion to the rest of the giant yacht. Meanwhile, her unique matt black hull has been painted with a specialised and environmentally friendly nano coating technique.

A highly sophisticated minimalistic design makes for a stunning interior. Main materials used include matt-finished sycamore, leather, matt-finished special paint, high gloss stainless steel, palladium leaf, back-lit white onyx, off-white & black limestone and a wealth of carve glass.

An undoubted highlight in terms of the luxury spaces is the owners’ observation lounge with a breathtaking vista over the eight-metre long pool on the vast main deck forward area. Great views are also assured from the magnificent sun deck, which offers many relaxation options such as a gym, lounging areas aft and forward with Jacuzzi, and a 102” pop-up television screen for outdoor movie viewing. Air carries two 9.8-metre tenders in dedicated and fully enclosed bays. There is also a large foldable swimming platform with bar from which to watch the world go by. Air is exclusively available for charter via IYR (International Yacht Register) and the Feadship charter division.

​​The World’s First “Air Yacht” Would Sail in the Sky and Sea (With Zero Emissions)

By Jessica Cherner

vessel over the water flying in sky

Yachts and private planes make for luxurious ways to zip from one place to another, but recently, a businessman based in Germany and Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini discovered what happens when they combine boats and jets: the ultra-sleek sky yacht. Equipped with eight counter-rotating electric engines powered by super-lightweight batteries and solar panels, the nearly 500-foot-long yacht can traverse the sky (and sea) at 60 knots for more than two days straight with zero emissions. Plus, aside from its full-electric mobility, the air yacht is sustainable in other ways too: It will be built entirely from carbon fiber, which is as high-strength as it is lightweight.

boat in the water

The 500-foot futuristic vessel comprises three main parts: a central compartment with a living room and dining area flanked by two inflatable helium blimps that house 10 suites.

Lazzarini’s design looks like something out of the future: a spacious living room and dining area housed within the sky yacht’s central torpedo-shaped structure that’s connected via eight carbon bridges (four on each side) to two 150-foot-long blimps. And the blimps that contain a whopping 14,125,867 cubic feet of helium that keep the vessel high in the sky, flanking the main compartment, aren’t just there to elevate the jet: Between the two, there are 10 guest suites, all of which boast 360-degree views.

The two balloon-like compartments on either side of the impressive vessel comprise an inflatable base that allows the innovative machine to float atop the water surface when the owner is in the mood to sail the sea versus the sky. Though being able to choose which medium makes the most sense for specific destinations sounds like an ideal way to travel, the sky yacht is, unfortunately, still quite a ways off from replacing typical ships and planes. 

vessel in the water with stairs

The enormous sky yacht is too big to simply park at a marina while its guests climb aboard, so it comes equipped with a retractable staircase.  

For the private owner who commissioned the estimated $627,511,500 sky yacht, however, his new mode of transportation is the way of the future. In fact, Lazzarini has promised that a first-scale model prototype will lift into the air later this year, and a collection of slightly varying designs (of different lengths) is currently in the early phases of both engineering and prototyping. So, perhaps we’ll all be passengers onboard a boat that flies before the end of the decade.

Popular for large events and special celebrations, this expansive vessel accommodates up to 600 guests and seats up to 300 diners.

With elegant mahogany and cherry wood interiors and a state-of-the-art multimedia system, the California Spirit is not only the newest, but also the most updated of all of the Flagship Cruises and Events vessels.

From each of these levels, the yacht offers 360-degree views of the San Diego skyline and Bay Bridge, Coronado, and as far south as Mexico. The two lower levels provide both climate-controlled and open-air decks, eliminating the need to climb any steps to come in or out of the fresh air.

SUPERYACHT LIFE

The human side of yacht ownership

How would you characterise the typical yacht owner? Whatever you may have been led to believe, the truth is simple: for most, it’s about using their yachts for precious family time, and for many it’s also about using their yachts for good.

There’s a theme that is repeated on countless yachts large and small the world over – superyachting, for most, is not about being seen but rather the opposite. It’s about yacht families and their friends enjoying precious, private moments away from the pressures of demanding business lives and the long hours running those businesses can entail.

“I have an extended family, and when our schedules allow we all like to gather on the yacht and spend some quality time as a family,” Douglas Barrowman , owner of the yacht Turquoise , told Superyacht Life back in 2017. “There is no place like a yacht for family togetherness.”

The human side of yacht ownership

A love of the sea, adventure and technology

Superyachts and yacht ownership are also a way to explore the world around us, and to interact with and grow to understand extraordinarily diverse communities from remote Pacific islands to the Scandinavian Arctic. It’s something that inspired tech entrepreneur Jasper Smith to combine his love of adventure and his love of the sea with an opportunity for owners to give back while indulging their passion.

“I have always had a deep passion for the ocean,” Smith says. “I grew up watching Jacques Cousteau movies and being enthralled at the idea of being challenged by an endeavour.” When he set out to find his own perfect explorer yacht, however, he realised it didn’t yet exist. His answer was to create Arksen. “My aim with Arksen was to create the perfect machines to enable adventure,” he enthuses. “I also wanted to build sustainable boats which considered full life cycles, from material sourcing to recycling.”

That’s not all – Arksen also asks owners of its yachts to sign up to a pledge it calls 10% for the Ocean, where they will donate 10% of their vessel’s time to philanthropic activities. “A lot of people who have the money feel a responsibility to try and make sure that the oceans are well looked after,” Smith explains. “The people that are attracted to Arksen are passionate about the ocean and want to go off on slightly more advanced expeditions and trips. With that audience, there is a tremendous buy-in to the boat being for more than just their own purposes.”

The human side of yacht ownership

Superyachts as a force for good

It speaks to the heart of the matter, which is that the superyacht industry and yacht owners in particular have a heart – they care about preserving the environment they enjoy, and they care about the communities they interact with who make them feel so welcome when they visit. It’s reflected in the smallest of gestures, such as donating materials and books to local schools, to the largest – helping with last-mile delivery of critical disaster relief. It’s about superyachts giving back.

It’s a positive-impact attitude toward humanity that is quietly typified by hundreds of superyacht owners, who often prefer to do their thing under the radar rather than take false glory for their philanthropic or humanitarian endeavours. For some it’s as straightforward as getting involved in projects with organisations like YachtAid Global . For others, their endeavours become a key reason for yachting.

American superyacht owner Carl Allen is a prime example of these philanthropic yacht owners. After selling his company, and having enjoyed chartering and owning yachts as a family for years, Allen set up Allen Explorations to deliver a full programme of projects, ranging from historical shipwreck searches and environmental research to disaster relief. Indeed, Allen’s support yacht Axis played a vital role in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian – one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the Bahamas.

“We had to drop everything and help after the hurricane,” says Allen. “ Axis delivered over £700,000 of supplies and made multiple trips to Little Grand island in the Bahamas. We’ve turned it into the epitome of how to organise hurricane relief.” The team helped get the local school back up and running, and organised for a group from Florida Power and Light to help restore power. “The island also lost their water tower,” he adds, “so we delivered four tanks on  Axis .”

Celebrating the good in the superyachting good life

From family time to time spent embracing the global family, superyacht owners have a far greater positive impact than many assume from preconceived ideas about what a superyacht is and the sort of person who owns or charters one. It’s one of the reasons The Superyacht Life Foundation, in association with the Monaco Yacht Show , has unveiled The Honours, which is a way to celebrate the people of our industry rather than the yachts which so often get sole focus. It’s about recognising the extraordinary contributions that people make, the change they inspire, the opportunities they create, and the lives they change.

On 26 September, the eve of the 2023 Monaco Yacht Show, three honourees – nominated by people from across the superyacht industry, and selected from a shortlist by an expert panel of industry judges – will be feted for their work and contribution to superyachting. These are industry professionals and yacht owners who epitomise what superyachting can do. These are people who highlight the good in the superyachting good life.

Yacht owners, impactful journeys

All around the globe, yacht owners are enjoying precious time on their yachts with family and friends, and many are also realising that their yachts can be a force for good and for change, tying in with their philanthropic works and humanitarian endeavours.

“Our yacht is a platform for much of our life,” offers Joe Anderson , co-owner of the Benovia Winery in California with his wife, Mary Dewane. “For instance, we used it at a fundraiser for cystic fibrosis in Baltimore at the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner event. The Blue Angels were flying overhead and used Bella Una [the couple’s yacht] as a GPS coordinate and performed flybys, tipping their wings at us. It was quite a thrill. Having a yacht is a way to keep the family intact, enjoy time with friends and have fun.”

Slip Ownership

Frequently asked questions, exactly what am i buying — what is a condominium boat slip and how does it work.

Owning a condominium boat slip at Emery Cove is like owning a ‘condo’ in a residential development: you own and control 100% of your individual, private boat slip; you also own permanent rights to use and enjoy – along with your fellow slip owners – all the common areas including the docks, the deck areas, the parking lots, the sidewalks and landscaping, the bathroom building, etc… Ours is a marina which enjoys a generous basic design; the over-all dimensions are roomy and modern with wide berths, wide fairways and many dock amenities including dock boxes, free wireless internet, 30 to 50 amp electrical service, telephone hook-ups, etc. The trend in marina design is towards longer, wider slips and wide fairways, like ours. With an average slip length of about 41’, an excellent central Bay location, and a first class, well-funded dock and grounds maintenance program, your slip at Emery Cove should continue to hold it’s value for a long time.

One of the main benefits of owning a condominium is ease of repair and maintenance. Emery Cove’s common areas are repaired, maintained, insured and managed through a non- profit property owner’s association (Emery Cove Marina Condominium Association, Inc. or the “Association”). As a slip owner, your only obligation regarding maintenance is to pay your monthly Association dues (i.e. your pro-rata share of the actual maintenance costs which is currently $7.51 per lineal foot per month). The Association’s staff takes care of the rest. Other than Association dues, your only other cost to own your boat slip is Alameda County’s real estate taxes. Like real estate taxes on your home, boat slip taxes are based on market value and are billed directly by Alameda County. Thus, slip ownership is virtually carefree and your cost to own and use your slip is very economical since Association dues cover just the actual cost (both present and future) to keep Emery Cove insured, managed, repaired and looking good; there is no mark-up or profit paid to a marina operator.

Another major point: our condo boat slips at Emery Cove are unique in that you own fee title* to the slip, not a State land’s ground lease like other marinas. When you own property in ‘fee title’, your ownership rights never expire; they go on forever. Thus, the market value of your slip will not decline due to a fixed expiration date on a State tidelands ground lease. No other condo marina on San Francisco Bay has this valuable feature, and fee title is an important asset when you decide to dispose of your slip in the future.

Emery Cove’s property owner’s Association is financially sound. There are 430 slips at Emery Cove totaling 17,801 lineal feet, and upkeep costs are spread evenly to slip owners on a per-lineal-foot basis via monthly dues billed by the Association. As of April 2016 the Association has accumulated about $8,200,000 in cash reserves to cover current and future repairs and maintenance, and as a new slip owner you get the benefit of these funds. Ever since its completion in 1984, Emery Cove has enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best run, cleanest, safest marinas on the Bay. For over 34 years, the condo concept at Emery Cove has worked well. It works because boaters – people like yourself – have purchased a permanent fee interest in their own boat slip and, like any “homeowner”, they maintain a keen interest in the continued good health of their investment. The result is that Emery Cove Yacht Harbor is one of the best managed, best maintained, best looking marinas on the Bay.

WHAT IS FEE OWNERSHIP?*

There is no greater status of property ownership than ‘fee’ or ‘fee simple’ ownership. When you own property in fee, as is the case at Emery Cove, you own a permanent and perpetual right to use and enjoy your slip – not a ground lease. At almost every other San Francisco Bay marina, the water-based real estate is actually subject to a State ground lease for anywhere from 30 years to 50 years and the marina owner is merely a leasehold tenant of the State. A ground lease loses value every year as the lease termination date gets closer and closer. WE ARE DIFFERENT. Emery Cove is unique in that individuals can actually buy and own a perpetual, fee simple* interest in a small piece of San Francisco Bay, including all related water rights.

*Note: all water lots in California, fee or leased, are subject to State BTLC public easements for “waterborne commerce” – please see preliminary title report for details. Just like an expensive waterfront home in Belvedere, you own your fee simple slip forever, subject to this State easement. Fee title to property is a key feature when it comes time for you to re-sell or trade your slip in the future.

DO I GET A DEED, TITLE INSURANCE, ETC., ETC?

Yes, buying a slip at Emery Cove is just like any other real estate purchase. At close of escrow, you receive a Grant Deed in your name which is recorded in Alameda County records and a policy of title insurance from a title company insuring your exclusive ownership in fee title to your own boat slip plus your non-exclusive rights to use and enjoy the common areas at Emery Cove. Sample title documents are included in the Emery Cove Document Book, available upon request.

CAN THE GOVERNMENT OR ANYONE ELSE LIMIT MY INTEREST IN MY SLIP IN THE FUTURE?

The original developers of Emery Cove paid substantial sums for valid permits to build and sell condominium boat slips from a number of governmental agencies, including The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). These rights cannot be revoked, modified or taken away unless you get paid for what is taken. When you buy your slip at Emery Cove, you are purchasing a valuable property right and it does not expire or run out or need to be renewed – it is permanent and cannot be taken away or changed without fair compensation to you. A copy of the BCDC permit is included in the Emery Cove Document Book.

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON MY USE OF THE SLIP?

Like a residential condo, so long as you use your property in a responsible manner, you can do pretty much as you please. Your slip can be used to berth your own boat or you can rent it out to another boat owner. To protect values, commercial uses are not allowed in the marina. Your slip can be freely re-sold, traded, inherited, mortgaged, rented, gifted, etc. Other than standard title conditions, the only restrictions on your slip use are those which are set out in Emery Cove’s rules and regulations and these relate primarily to mutual safety and are, in general, plain common sense. These rules are set out in the Association’s Articles, By-Laws and CC&r’s and their goal, which has been successful for 32 years, is to basically govern the day-to-day operations of the marina and to control or, if necessary, act to prohibit behavior that is contrary to everyone’s mutual enjoyment of the marina. Copies of these documents are included in the Emery Cove Document Book.

CAN I RENT OUT MY SLIP IF I WANT TO?

Absolutely. You are free to rent your slip to anyone for any length of time at any rental rate you want to charge. As long as your tenant abides with the marina rules & regulations, your right to be a slip landlord’ has no limitations.

CAN I LIVE ABOARD MY BOAT?

Our marina has been given approval by the BCDC for a total of 6% live-aboard slips. Permanent live-aboard status is at the discretion of the Harbor Master and is not specific to any particular boat slip. The harbor office can advise you as to the details. Weekend use and periodic overnight occupancy by you or a guest will always be OK at Emery Cove.

CAN I RE-SELL OR TRADE MY SLIP TO A NEW OWNER?

Definitely – there are no restrictions on the sale or transfer of a slip. You can sell it, trade it, gift it, bequeath it or mortgage it at any time on any terms you may agree upon and no permission is required from any person or entity.

WHO TAKES CARE OF THE MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR WORK FOR THE DOCKS AND COMMON AREAS? HOW IS THE WORK PAID FOR?

One of the best features of condominium ownership is freedom from repairs and this is why vacation condos are so popular. Upkeep of the docks and the other marina areas is handled by the Association and is paid for by slip owners out of monthly dues assessed and collected by the Association. Every November, the Association’s board of directors and the marina staff work together to establish a maintenance budget for the next calendar year, including sinking funds for future repairs. The Association’s annual budget for the past few years has ranged between $2,192,000 to 2,218,000 per year. The budget is evenly spread amongst all slip owners on a per-lineal foot basis. Most of the minor repairs and the daily maintenance tasks are handled by Emery Cove’s four staff members. The Harbor Master, Diane Isley, has been at Emery Cove for about 32 years and we are fortunate to have such a well-experienced, professional manager. Special maintenance and repair tasks are contracted out on an ‘as needed’ basis and are supervised by the staff. Although Emery Cove Yacht Harbor is thirty-four years old, the marina has been maintained in good condition due to the common interest which all slip owners have in keeping their own investment in good condition and repair. When you buy a slip at Emery Cove, you’ll also enjoy your pro rata benefit of the Association’s nearly $8,200,000 as of June 2018 in cash reserves set aside for dredging, future repairs and general maintenance of Emery Cove’s common areas.

WHO RUNS THE ASSOCIATION AND WHAT CONTROLS ARE THERE?

Basically, the Association is run by slip owners for the benefit of slip owners. The Association is managed pursuant to permanent, recorded rules which were set up at the beginning of Emery Cove’s formation and the system has worked successfully since its inception. These permanent rules are called “Covenants, Conditions and restrictions” and the CC&r’s are rules set up for the common good to keep Emery Cove running smoothly. Every slip owner is an automatic voting member of the Association and the membership annually elects a panel of five unpaid volunteers to serve as members of the Association’s Board of Directors. The Board works with the marina staff and with various outside consultants to set up annual operating budgets and to monitor marina operating costs to keep Emery Cove running well and looking good. After the estimated costs have been determined and the annual budget set, monthly dues are calculated on a per-lineal-foot basis and are assessed against all slip owners. The system is very democratic – everyone can vote and anyone can run for a position on the board. Board meetings are public and are held about five times a year to discuss and analyze various issues affecting marina operations. Since its inception in 1984, Emery Cove’s Association has been run in a smooth, friendly and professional manner.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE COST TREND FOR THE ASSOCIATION’S DUES?

What maintenance or operating costs are not handled by the association.

None. All items of common area maintenance, insurance, management, etc. for Emery Cove’s docks and grounds are handled by and through the Association.

IF AN ACCIDENT SHOULD OCCUR AT THE MARINA, WHAT ABOUT LAW SUITS AND MY PERSONAL LIABILITY AS A SLIP OWNER?

In thirty-four years of operation, Emery Cove has had but one insurance claim. The Association has never sued anyone or been sued by anyone. This remarkable record is due to the fact that not only is the marina staff very safety conscious but all boats berthed in the marina are required by the marina rules and regulations to carry their own liability insurance naming the Association as an additional insured.

The condo Association itself is well insured with a total of $6 million in liability insurance to cover the docks and common areas. Should an accident occur and a claim be made, the Association’s insurer will provide a legal defense and will cover all damages up to the policy limits. In the unlikely event that a judgment should exceed the $6,000,000 policy limits, only the Association would be liable for the difference – individual slip owners would NOT be held individually liable.

DO CONDO SLIP OWNERS GET AN INCOME TAX “SHELTER”?

As explained elsewhere, one of the few true tax ‘shelters’ still available to taxpayers today is the deductibility of mortgage interest and real estate taxes by homeowners against earned income. Slip owners who use their slip and boat as a “second home” as permitted under the tax code (which many Emery Cove slip owners do) are allowed to deduct all mortgage interest paid on both slip and boat mortgages, as well as all real estate taxes paid, as an offset against their other income. For the typical taxpayer, this results in a true tax shelter to the extent that about 44% to 48% of these costs are deductible against one’s taxable income.

WHY BUY A SLIP – WHY NOT JUST RENT ONE?

Saving money is the biggest reason to buy. Emery Cove’s current rent rate is about $11.90 to $12.90 per lineal foot per month and rental rates will almost certainly continue to increase in future years. Due to the deductibility of mortgage interest and real estate taxes, you can now buy your own slip for an average monthly after-tax cost that beats renting. And your savings start the day you close escrow. Now is your chance to buy your “Piece of the rock”. Thus, you can save right now over the monthly cost of renting a slip, you can enjoy possible future appreciation in market value.

In summary, it’s just like a home or apartment: when you rent, you have nothing but 12 canceled checks at year’s end and the prospect of higher rents. When you buy, not only do you actually lower your after-tax berthing payments for the slip but you are now in a position to enjoy future appreciation in the value of your slip along with protection against future rent hikes.

IF I WANT TO RE-SELL MY SLIP, ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS OR GOVERNMENT APPROVALS?

No, there are no limitations, restrictions or approvals required from any government agency or the Association for re-sale of a slip. You are free to sell it to any person at any time. Liveaboard status does not attach to individual slips and use of slips for living aboard is not automatically transferred – this is governed by the Association.

WHAT ASSURANCE DO I HAVE THAT THE MARINA WILL BE RUN PROPERLY IN THE FUTURE AND THAT THE VALUE OF MY SLIP WON’T SUFFER AS A RESULT OF POOR MANAGEMENT?

By any measure, Emery Cove has had a successful operating record. In thirty-fout years of existence, there has been no law suits, one landslide electrical insurance claim in 1998 for $16,000, and no Association dues delinquency issues. When things go this smoothly over such a long period of time, it is likely that a good basic management system is in place. At Emery Cove, the “management system” is the judgment and self-interest of the slip owners themselves who govern and oversee the operations of the marina pursuant to the permanently recorded rules of operation called CC&r’s via the Association’s Board of Directors. Unlike the management of other marinas, the Association’s goals are simply to do what is in the best interest of the slip owners – there is no other agenda. For most of its existence, Emery Cove has also been very fortunate to have had talented and dedicated staff people who have worked in close harmony with the Board and with Emery Cove’s slip owners to ensure the continued smooth operation of Emery Cove. Emery Cove’s record speaks for itself. In simple terms, it is the slip owners acting in concert through the Association who are in control of the marina. It is the slips owners themselves (each slip has one vote) who have the ultimate power to correct problems, if any, affecting Emery Cove and thereby to protect the value of their slips.

WHY DO PRICES OF THE SLIPS VARY?

Boat slip prices vary according to the asking price of the seller, but are generally based upon location. Upwind and extra wide berths carry a slight premium due to a greater ease of vessel docking.

HOW DO I MARKET MY SLIP LATER ON?

There are several ways to sell – or to rent out – your Emery Cove boat slip later on when you no longer need your boat slip. It can be sold by advertising it in Bay Area yachting publications, in local newspaper classifieds or via the harbor bulletin board across from the Emery Cove office. In addition, the Association keeps a list of slips for sale by our owners and it is sent out to anyone who responds to the marina marketing ads which Emery Cove’s Association runs in Latitude 38 and the Yachtsman. We also maintain a website: www.emerycove.com. These marketing resources are at no additional cost to slip owners. The Association does charge a transfer fee for staff’s time to handle the sale paperwork and to help you process your sale. Of course, when you sell your yacht, you can also sell your slip along with it to the same buyer thereby possibly earning a premium price for your boat. You can also gift or bequeath it. Another option is to simply keep your slip and to rent it out as an investment: you collect a nice monthly rental check with little management required.

I THINK I WANT TO BUY A SLIP – WHAT DO I DO?

Contact Diane Isley at the Emery Cove Marina office (510-428-0505) to request additional information or to make an appointment. If you have any questions, the marina staff will be happy to answer them for you.
