Every year, in mid to late spring, numerous large yachts and sailboats briefly stop in Charleston on their trip north after spending the winter in warm Florida. This year is no different, as there are currently two large vessels docked at the Charleston City Marina. They are outlined below:

Azteca Yacht:

Owner: Ricardo Salinas Pliego

Owner’s Net Worth: $3.5 Billion

Owner’s Country: Mexico

Owner’s Company: Grupo Salinas

Built: 2009

Value: $80 Million

Guests: 12

Cabins: 6

Crew: 28

Length: 236 ft 2 in

Beam: 44 ft 3 in

Draft: 11 ft 5 in

Speed: 16.5 Knots

Builder: CRN

Designer: Nuvolari & Lenard

Available One Week Rent: $425,000

Below is a brief description from http://www.superyachts.com/motor-yacht-4291/azteca.htm

“The new Azteca, known as hull number 124, was designed through thoughtful analysis of the Owner’s wishes, resulting in a dashing hull-shape, a sharp bow, and modern, streamlined external forms.
Her owner desired a yacht that would be a perfect tribute to family life at sea, and her designers honoured this request by incorporating an innovative 100 square-metre beach club aft.
Here, the swim platform transforms into a large beach area almost in the sea itself, fully equipped with a shower and chairs ideal for sunbathing. For those who wish to sit inside, the adjoining internal area is designed for comfort and relaxation, outfitted with sofas so guests can enjoy the proximity of the sea.
Amongst her six cabins are a lavish owner suite and five double cabins. The accommodations are well-worth a mention onboard Azteca; the Owner’s suite alone covers 120 square-metres. Found forward on the main deck, the suite is accessed via private lobby and includes his and hers bathroom, separate massage room and cinema room. Perhaps most striking of all is the hatch that can be lowered 90 degrees to act as a balcony hovering directly over the waves.
There are also accommodations onboard to cater for a crew of up to 28.
Luxury yacht Azteca is powered by two Caterpillar 3516B-CHD engines that allow her to reach a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and cruise comfortably at 15 knots. She can achieve a range of 6,000 nautical miles while cruising at a speed of 12 knots.
As the largest CRN yacht ever built, the 124 needed her own special operating structure to be built. Measuring 95 metres long and 25 metres high, the 2,660 square-metre structure becomes the biggest in the production facility.”
