Alexander is a Owner and Senior Yacht Charter Broker during Bespoke Yacht Charter, a association he founded in 2014 after 13 years’ knowledge arranging oppulance yacht charters in a south of France, via a Mediterranean and worldwide. More than half of his bookings are repeat clients or referrals from existent clients that embody ultra high net value individuals, celebrities, stately families and immeasurable corporations. His aim is to broach over all expectations – possibly he arranges a licence engagement for a dual week Summer holiday for a family looking for a final word in discretion, by to corporate yacht charters for companies looking to benefaction an intensely high form during an critical event.
What is it that we do exactly?
I arrange oppulance yacht charters for rarely perceptive people from all over a world. we specialize in all Mediterranean yachting destinations yet with sold importance on a Côte d’Azur and French Riviera, such places as St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco. The yachts we offer are from 25-100m in length and are all entirely crewed by rarely veteran crew, charity a ultimate in floating luxury. In further to yachting holidays, we also lease yachts to companies attending prestigious events in a south of France such as a Cannes Lions, MIPIM and a Cannes Film Festival.
What do we suffer many about what we do?
I venerate a fact that we spend my days arranging practice designed to give others pleasure! My clients are customarily unequivocally bustling business people and they wish their holidays to be positively ideal in any way. Working unequivocally closely with any yacht’s Captain and crew, we aim to safeguard an positively seamless oppulance knowledge for any client.
What would we contend are a 3 best places you’ve ever stayed?
Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, Cap d’Antibes, France
I positively venerate this mythological hotel on a lush Cap d’Antibes peninsula between Antibes and Cannes in a south of France. The hotel is impossibly private and set in pleasing gardens with fanciful views of a Mediterranean. The staff are really AMAZING! It’s impossibly lush yet in a unequivocally dissimilar and unobtrusive way. If we haven’t stayed there, we strongly suggest it. It is to my mind and many others, a best hotel in a world!
Villa Katy, Korcula, Croatia
I initial detected this smashing villa on a island of Korcula in 2007 and requisitioned it for dual weeks. It was my initial revisit to Croatia and we have been going there ever since. The residence is surrounded by a sea on 3 sides with a many overwhelming views. It has a private pontoon for swimming and holding a vessel or boat out into a bay. It’s an intensely private place and we could stay there for weeks yet saying a soul! This villa is a place to truly remove yourself and switch off. The circuitously city of Vela Luka has copiousness of shops and restaurants if we ever feel like going out!
The Yard, Milan
I mostly go to concerts in Milan in a summer months and detected this fanciful hotel on a internet totally by chance. This hotel is truly unique, partial loft apartment, partial gentlemen’s club… any apartment is themed around something different, engine racing, tennis etc. It’s not mostly we have Louis Vuitton trunks in your room, unless they’re yours of course! Truly fanciful emblem and pleasing objets d’art to be found throughout. The bar and patio are also stunning! As a name implies, a hotel is set around a pleasing yard right in a centre of Milan, my favourite city in Italy.
What’s been your many noted dining knowledge to date?
I have been propitious adequate to have dined during some of a best restaurants in a world, Le Louis XV in Monaco, Le Gravroche in London etc. But a one that unequivocally stands out is The Five Fields in London. we went there with my mother for my birthday final year and was truly blown away. Chef Marguerite Keogh is impossibly gifted and uses pleasing mixture in unequivocally artistic ways. The food is singular in that it is impossibly stylish yet really not character over substance. We had a tasting menu and any march was a triumph. The grill has been receiving soap-box reviews and we am certain it is usually a matter of time before a Michelin inspectors give a grill a approval it deserves!
Have we burnished shoulders with a abounding and famous, possibly by your work or your travels?
Yes absolutely! The immeasurable infancy of my clients are rather rich to contend a least, and some of them flattering famous too. we positively won’t name any names yet celebrities positively venerate suffering yachts!
I always attend a Monaco Grand Prix and have seen lots of famous faces there, both from a universe of F1 of march yet also song and cinema. we also venerate a grill Cipriani in Monaco, owned by Flavio Briatore, there are always lots of famous people in there and during a circuitously bar Twiga! The same is loyal of some of a beach clubs during Pampelonne nearby St Tropez.
Funnily enough, for all a celebrities we see on a Côte d’Azur, we indeed substantially see some-more famous people in London, privately around Kensington and Chelsea where we spend a good understanding of time.
There is an Italian grill called La Famiglia in Chelsea that I’ve been going to given we was in nappies. we contingency have been there hundreds of times and there is always a famous actor or musician eating there any time we go! As a child, we had my print taken there with Clint Eastwood and a print stills hangs on a wall in a restaurant.
What now ranks top on your transport wish list?
I can’t wait to go to India! we have listened so most about a nation and people! Those we know that have been, positively soap-box about it – a food, a colours, a vibrancy. we wish to do it probity yet and go for a integrate of months so we am watchful until we have a time. Spare time is a bit of a oppulance during a moment!
Thank we for holding partial in the interview, Alex. Good fitness with your query to get to India – we was propitious adequate to be there for a integrate of days in 2013 but, like we say, it was sadly really nowhere nearby prolonged adequate to remotely do it justice!
