SAIL ON  BOND’S SEDUCTIVE

By Denise Reynolds

sailboatMeet Regina: 184 feet of shapely, sexy, seductive sailing. Chances are, she’s already caught your eye, gracefully gliding by beaches brimming with supermodels, turning every head in sight. You may have spotted her in St. Barths, Saint-Tropez or Santorini. Then again, your most vivid memory of her in all her glory, was most likely indelibly etched in your mind during that heady helicopter shot of her under sail, or the subsequent steamy encounter below deck between James Bond star Daniel Craig and Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe, who filmed “Skyfall” scenes on Regina.

Regina’s cinematic fame quickly established her as a favorite charter choice for celebrities and sybarites alike, all of whom feel like stars aboard this stunning superyacht. A crew of nine cater to every whim of guests, lavishing them with whatever they desire, be it a dazzling array of water toys—including a three-person jet ski, wakeboard, sea kayaks, water skis, canoes, Zodiac and snorkeling equipment—or quiet time with a loved one lounging on the expansive sunpad on the aft deck, gazing at a view to thrill.

“During the day, our guests are out on their private vessel, island hopping and enjoying all the water sports and water toys,” recounts Yossi Sokol, founder of Y Charter, a full-service luxury yacht charter agency. “You have your own staff onboard. But at the end of the day, you want to come back to the harbor, get off, stretch your legs and walk the town. Speak to the locals, dine at their restaurants, and get the vibe of the place you’re at.”

As the night sky twinkles above you, settle back into Regina’s sumptuous staterooms, ensconced by bedheads of honey mousse onyx, as you let luxurious linens caress your body—and dream of the day you’ll return to make more memories on the yacht you call home, if only for a while.
