New Boats Available for Exclusive Charter During America’s Cup Event

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Chicago, a qualifying event for the 2017 America’s Cup, is taking place this June at the Navy Pier in Chicago!

This America’s Cup event in Chicago will be well attended, and will likely go down in history as it is the first time an America’s Cup qualifying event will take place on freshwater.

The Charter Team with 26 North Yachts will be making some history of our own to commemorate this groundbreaking yachting event.

How would you like to see some of the best sailors in the world compete in high-flying, state-of-the-art 45’ High-Performance Catamarans from the deck of your own luxury motor yacht!

We have just added the Bonita, an 84′ Cheoy Lee yacht to our Charter Fleet, offering an exclusive VIP charter for the best viewing of the America’s Cup World Series Chicago possible!

A Cheoy Lee yacht

The Bonita has some features you may not find on any other yacht in the Chicago area during the event or any other time. She is actually 87 feet with the 3 foot platform that was extended at the factory. She has more than $200,000 in customization add-ons that include full granite and marble upgrades everywhere possible, bow and stern thrusters with a cockpit control station. The bridge has a full custom bar with 24-inch “Fire Magic Grill,” a hot tub, and room for all your toys that are loaded with the 1700 # Nautical structures crane. All appliances have been upgraded to subzero throughout, including a 16 Cu. foot fridge in the pilothouse/galley.

If the Bonita seems a bit much, we have a more intimate motor yacht available. Enjoy the same amazing views and exclusive treatment on a somewhat smaller package, the Thanks Petey, a 61′ Viking Sport Cruiser. Thanks Petey is perfect if you may want to charter the entire boat for an outing for you family or close business associates who are racing fans.

The VIP Package

  • Watch a key America’s Cup event from the Bonita – a luxurious 85’ motor yacht
  • Get as close to the action as possible – while enjoying Ultimate VIP luxury to the max!
  • Vintage champagne. Sumptuous hors d’oeuvres. White glove service – are included in your VIP Package.

You will experience all of the above and more, all for an America’s Cup Special rate, contact our Charter Team for details.

If you are interested in the Bonita or the Thanks Petey for longer term, both luxury yachts are for sale. The Bonita is well equipped to accommodate you and your guests with a master stateroom that has a custom full beam, “his-and-hers” head, and enormous “rain glass” shower that is truly the best design you can imagine. The VIP stateroom could easily be mistaken for the master and two guest staterooms are designed for comfort and luxury.

Thanks Petey is a prime example of  the sleek, exotic profile that the the Viking Princess 61 line is known for. She is designed to sleep six in style, with a master suite and two guest suites each with their own bathrooms with separate stall showers. Feel free to contact us for further inquires on either vessel.
