Charter in Asia 2021: Fraser
Fraser’s Thailand office flags up two distinct superyachts for charter from Phuket, both benefiting from extensive refits.
Camara C has completed a four-year refit
Fraser’s charter CAs based in Phuket include the 32m Camara C, a steel-hulled classic built by Yarrow & Co in Scotland in 1961 and a recent arrival in Thailand.
After chartering for over 30 years in the Mediterranean, the 105ft motor yacht recently completed a four-year refit and now features modern amenities, an inflatable swim platform and plenty of toys.

Camara C accommodates 12 guests in six cabins including a full-beam master suite forward on the main deck. On the lower deck, the five all-white en-suite cabins include a double and twin forward, while aft of the engine room are two doubles plus a VIP twin with queen-sized beds in the stern. There’s also accommodation for six crew.
The main deck has a cosy alfresco dining aft and a large saloon with sofas on three sides, while the flybridge has plenty of clear deck space, a large lounging area aft and a covered dining table midships.

As well as a tender, toys include diving, fishing and snorkelling equipment, two kayaks and a paddleboard. Summer weekly charter rates start from €44,500 (about US$53,000) plus APA.
Fraser also represents the 32.2m Demarest, the former Aquarius S designed by Stefano Righini and built in Italy by Falcon in 2002.
Demarest has also had a recent refit
The 105-footer emerged from a refit in 2019 and started chartering in Phuket, with musician John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen among the first guests.
Popular features include a large jacuzzi – non-standard for this model – and covered dining area on the flybridge, while there’s also alfresco dining in the covered aft cockpit on the main deck. The interior has a saloon with seating on all four sides and a formal dining area beside a huge TV on the forward bulwark.

There’s accommodation for 10 guests in five cabins, as well as for five crew, while toys include a tender, jet-ski, wakeboard, waterskis, donut and two paddleboards. Summer weekly rates start from €50,000 (about US$59,000) plus APA.
“Just as Camara C is the quintessential gentleman’s yacht, Demarest is a modern superyacht designed to delight,” said Phuket-based Benjamin Tabuteau of Fraser.

“Fraser is confident luxury superyacht charters will resume as travel restrictions ease and international clients start visiting Thailand and Southeast Asia again.”
In its bimonthly contribution to Yacht Style, Fraser says the global market’s record-breaking superyacht sales show how the real rewards of yachting have been highlighted during the pandemic.
