1-week charter for 12 guests on the newly launched 187’ super yacht Lady Lindavalue $350,000
Enjoy a 7-day charter before May 2013 in the Bahamas or Caribbean for up to 12 guests on a 187' super yacht (built by Trinity Yachts). When LADY LINDA was completed this year, this yacht rocked the charter world with almost continuous charters since it entered service.
The large master suite has a king size bed, his and her baths, and a large office. The four guest cabins are especially large with king size beds, very large windows and very spacious bathrooms. This fantastic yacht cruises at 18 knots, so you will have time to go many places in the Bahamas, including great places like Bakers Bay, Harbor Island with its famous pink sands, or the new ultra luxurious resort and marina named Albany near Nassau. In the Caribbean you can enjoy the American and British Virgin Islands, St. Martin and St. Barth.
The crew of 14 will look after your every need and serve you fabulous meals prepared to your preferences. This will include theme dinners with lavish decorations. You will be whisked to shore in style on a 39' auxiliary boat to visit towns or spend a day on a deserted beach with food, music, water toys and a shaded cover for your enjoyment. Or, play in the water with the personal water crafts, a stand up Jet Ski, water skis or the Sea Bobs that will pull you through or under the water. Scuba and snorkeling gear is also available.
This yacht is four levels of fun and amazement that includes dancing under the stars on the top deck with a great sound system and disco lights. Or just relax with all the stations on satellite TV, a huge movie and music library and Internet connection for you and your guests. The owner's motto is "always give the guests more than they expect," so there is even more. As with any charter, the winner will be responsible for provisioning, fuel and dockage. But anchoring out can be great fun! Should you wish to extend your cruise, the owner will offer you a reduced charter rate for the extra time. The charter dates will be at the mutual convenience of you and the yacht owner and the location of the yacht between the Caribbean and Bahamas when you wish to cruise. Charter dates are subject to change by the owner up until 3 weeks before the charter. Should the yacht be sold before your charter, all money will be refunded.

Tim Haywood Limited Edition R200: Own the first limited edition of 20!
Here's your chance to live out all those futuristic James Bond fantasies! Yes, today is the day that thrill seekers will be able to fly up to 30' in the air and back into their childhood fantasies. The long anticipated recreational Jetpack has finally become a reality.
Last year the JetLev R200 was introduced, the groundbreaking flight system that shattered the limitations of every flying machine before it. This year only at the Rendezvous will you have the opportunity to own the first Tim Heywood JETLEV R200 limited edition 1 of 20.
A decade in the making, the R200 delivers 420 pounds of thrust—enough for the pilot to achieve airspeeds up to 30 mph and heights up to 30' for as long as five hours on a single tank of high octane gasoline. The JetLev utilizes a 200 hp four-stroke marine engine housed in a small mobile boat. A 33-foot-long hose tethers the boat to the jetpack while delivering water that shoots from the pack’s twin-mounted water nozzles at up to 60 PSI. The hull is made out of Carbon Fiber.
Aiming the nozzles creates smooth, stable turns and the motorcycle-style throttle lets you climb, dive and hover in salt or fresh water. Robb Report has listed this as the 2011 Top 10 Toys of Summer, MSN featured this as one of the world’s greatest adrenaline highs. You may think you have experienced the greatest adrenaline rush but not until you have experienced the JetLev R200. Are you ready for JetLev? Is a day on the water ever going to be the same? The ultimate toy…a revolution in watersports.Courtesy of JetLev Technologies, Inc.
