The 73-metre Lürssen Titania has a busy charter year planned

The 73-metre Lürssen Titania is geared up for a busy charter year, with a summer in the Mediterranean and a winter further south. We caught up with her captain Will Bagshaw to find out what the yacht has been up to.

How was your 2014 season?
“We had our most successful summer ever and a very busy winter, which included the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, along with time spent chartering in Thailand, Malaysia and the Maldives. The current crew on board Titania are the finest I’ve ever worked with and I feel we are extremely well equipped to accommodate diverse groups of charter clients.”

What was your highlight of the cruising year?
“Expanding my already extensive knowledge of the Greek Islands and the Adriatic, along with discovering new grounds in the Gulf and South-East Asia.”

And your plans for this year?
“With our success in Thailand and the Indian Ocean, we plan to base ourselves in this region for the winter season from now on. The cultural and historical diversity, and spectacular geographical and aquatic scenery, make it the natural alternative to the Caribbean. With such attractive cruising options and relatively short passages it’s almost like being in the Mediterranean.”

Titania was launched in 2006 and benefits from a 2012 refit, with an upgrade to the Francois Zuretti interior. The yacht sleeps 12 guests and 20 crew and charters through Burgess for €600,000pw (high season summer) and €490,000pw (low season summer).
