DENVER, CO (October 2, 2013) — PorticoSM a private club featuring luxury residences in the world’s most sought-after destinations, announced today that it has joined forces with Monocle, the pioneer in fractional yacht ownership, to add a nautical element to its expertly curated collection of vacation homes and excursions. Through this new partnership, Portico Club members now have access to one of Monocle’s premiere 80 foot yachts that is ready to set sail around Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands or St. Martin/St. Barth’s and Anguilla.
Like all Portico villa vacations, a getaway on Portico’s three-bedroom luxury yacht is entirely customized to each member’s needs. Members and their guests will enjoy the knowledgeable company of a full crew and won’t have to worry about any additional costs once on board. This all-inclusive excursion includes fuel, moorage, gratuity, private cook and all food and beverage. Though it is highly unusual for yacht travel to include these services, Portico and Monocle are both fully committed to the delivery of stress-free travel experiences to members. By taking care of all the planning details and providing on-site teams who assist with anything members might need during their trip, both companies ensure that members can be fully immersed in their vacation.
“We are thrilled to partner with Monocle and make Portico both a land- and sea-based entity,” says Cathy Ross, COO of Portico. “Both Portico and Monocle share the same cornerstone belief in creating stress-free travel experiences, and we are extremely excited to offer our members this incredibly unique opportunity.”
The Portico yacht is available to all Portico members and requires no additional fees or planning in relation to what is typically expected when vacationing at one of the company’s villas. Other outstanding features include a private hot tub on deck, a wave runner, kayak, snorkeling, fishing gear and water toys. Pricing starts at $6,725 per night with a minimum seven-night stay requirement. The yacht is able to accommodate up to six guests.
This exciting partnership with Monocle comes on the heels of the recent launch of Portico’s new Excursion series, which creates dynamic itineraries in some of the world’s most thrilling destinations, including Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands and Yellowstone National Park. Together, these programs exemplify Portico’s philosophy that members should be in vacation, enjoying the company of family and friends while experiencing memorable, one-of-a-kind travel moments.
