Going Galt charters in Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and New England. This luxury charter yacht is an exceptional day charter option for cruising the coastal waters of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Going Galt is also superb for term yacht charters for a maximum of 12 guests, with two masters, two connecting suites, a great crew and loads of toys.
For those unfamiliar with fiction author/philosopher Ayn Rand, Going Galt is named after John Galt, a character who symbolizes the power and glory of the human mind in her novel Atlas Shrugged. The Owner of crewed charter yacht Going Galt is a young and very successful, self-made man who is profoundly influenced by the tenets of Ayn Rand. (His corporate name is Fountainhead.) He is equally at home in South Florida and the Caribbean, and is both flexible and adaptable regarding charter schedules and locations.
Robert Passal, the acclaimed New York/Miami interior designer, did a superb job in creating a very exciting, Miami modern space that remains unconditionally nautical throughout. Luxury motor yacht Going Galt is an eclectic combination of design features with disparate components that ultimately integrate seamlessly. Originally designed by Jack Hargrave, traditional nautical styling, best exemplified by rich wood paneling, sole, and intricate joinery, is beautifully preserved. Juxtaposed by bold artwork, fabrics and furnishings, this striking interplay of geometric patterns works to meld the original and the new. The result is vibrant, energetic, whimsical and aristocratic.
Going Galt has several delightful social areas, each designed for mood and function. The main salon and formal dining area is a wonderful open architectural space that exemplifies Passal’s creative talent. A traditional palette of nautical blues and white is emboldened by strong textures, patterns, and the play of light and shadow through the window blinds. The casual skylounge beckons cocktails and conversation, or a good read and an afternoon nap on the sleeper sofa. Venture out to the aft deck, ideally equipped for the occasional tropical cloudburst and the New England evening cool. Here plush seating and magnificent views sets the stage for informal gatherings, regardless of weather conditions.
When Select Yachts went aboard this luxury charter yacht, cocktails and canapés were being served aft on the main deck in an utterly delightful breakfast room, bathed in sunlight by a surround of windows. The room has a playful yet stylish presence, a slight suggestion of the 1950s reinvented. One can imagine spending a very pleasant, relaxed time, gazing out the windows at the passing landscape, sipping a caffè latte and playing a game of chess or backgammon on the tabletop inlaid game boards.
Accommodations for 12 are in five staterooms, including two master suites, one on the main deck level, the second on the lower level. Two mirror twin berth staterooms are perfect for children and single friends, affording both space and privacy. Guest accommodations feature fine linens, lots of storage, private facilities and designer toiletries.
Going Galt has been completely refit, with all new soft goods, new engines, updated machinery and electronics, air conditioning units in perfect working order with new
chillers, state-of-the-art AV system with Apple TV, Blue Ray, DirectTV and surround sound.
Captain Scott Frierson was born and raised in New England and still returns every summer, although he has resided in Florida for the last 27 years. He is an accomplished fisherman who particularly loves the Bahamas. If the charter itinerary were left up to him, he would steer a course for the Exumas. “You’ve got nice, smaller ports deep enough to get into and plenty of anchoring, well protected, great for using all the toys and crystal clear water for superb diving, fishing and snorkeling.”
Step aboard Going Galt and you can feel an infectious positive energy and a sense of excitement. Whatever your preferred ports of call, Going Galt will prove that the going is great aboard this safe, seaworthy and most enchanting luxury charter yacht.
