Northrop & Johnson Spain was recently appointed exclusive world-wide central agent for charter of the stunning M/Y RoMa, a 62m (203’ft) masterpiece built by Viareggio Super Yachts and launched in 2009. Refitted in 2016 and again in winter 2018/2019, to this date RoMa is still one of the most technologically advanced super yachts in the 55m+ segment.
Besides her unique technologic features, which include the much coveted Dynamic Positioning System (DPS), that allows her to float still without the need of using her anchors, thus allowing her to access even those areas where anchoring is forbidden to protect the Posidonia algae meadows, there are almost infinite reasons to charter M/Y RoMa.
As everyone knows, one can charter the newest yacht on the market but the quality of the vessel and its facilities will not be the fundamental reason behind the success of a charter. The real stars behind a memorable experience are the crew. And RoMa’s crew, formed by a team of 17 under the command of Cpt. Janusz Walinski, is certainly one of the very best teams in the world! Only this year they’ve made History by being the very first yacht ever, regardless of size, to place in all three competitions hosted by the MYBA Charter Show, the world’s most important industry charter show: two first places and one third place in the “Wine Pairing and Presentation”, “All Hands on Deck” competition as well as in the came in first in “Wine Pairing and Presentation” and “Best Chef”. Unarguably lifting the award as winners of the “All Hands on Deck” is the most cherished one; it awards the crew that demonstrates being the best in entertaining guests on board through a themed action which involves true team work from each crew member on board. And if this feat weren’t enough, RoMa’s crew has been appointed to Acrew’s “Best Charter Crew Award”, presented by GMT. The results will be announced in October 2019 and we are sure RoMa’s crew stands very good chances of adding this very coveted trophy to the many reasons why chartering RoMa is the perfect choice.
Other awesome features of RoMa are being the first yacht ever (and so far the only one) licensed as “PADI Superyacht Scuba Diving School”; meaning that she is a proper diving school enabling guests to complete any official PADI course on board and receive the PADI scuba diving license, valid all over the world. She is also a RYA licensed personal water craft center so guests meeting the minimum requirements can obtain a provisional license to drive the motorized water toys.
In April RoMa added yer another reason why she is ideal. An Anvera 55’ (16.9m) chase boat worth €1.300.000 is one of the T/T RoMa and is included in her charter rate. This chase boat is a small yacht in her own right. Able to reach an exhilarating maximum speed of 30 knots, she features a comfortable interior with a double cabin which guests can use for a nice “siesta”, a salon and a bathroom. Outside there is a large sunbathing area on the foredeck as well as a shaded seating area which is great for light dining, and probably one of the largest aft-decks found on boats of her size. Equipped with sunbathing lounges, it is a beach-club which can be used for relaxing in the sun or as platform for enjoying the almost endless array of RoMa’s water-toys.
RoMa is 100% child-friendly, wheelchair friendly. Some of her features include an elevator serving all decks, a pool with counter-current jets for those who want a good work out or for the first contact with the basics of scuba diving. a very well equipped gym on the sun, and an unbeatable array of toys including her exhilarating 27m water-slide which plunges all the way from the sundeck to the water, a cinema, Internet and WiFi throughout, etc.
RoMa is available cruises in the West Mediterranean, the Adriatic as well as in Turkey. She accommodates up to 12 guests in 6 sumptuous staterooms. For event charters in port, she can host cocktails and parties for up to 100 guests.
