From the moment Provoke was invited to attend the launch for the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous 2018, onboard ‘Oneworld’, I was a little hesitant. I thought, ‘you’ve seen one yacht, you’ve seen them all.’ I was wrong.
Rod Salmon has broken all the rules when it comes to charter boats and this newest Australian yacht Oneworld, is the finest example and is appropriately named. With its modern interiors, strategically placed sitting areas and lavish deck space, Rod has taken luxury to a new level. Provoke received the wonderful opportunity to board this incredible yacht and sail around the Gold Coast Broadwater as part of the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous 2018 event.
When I boarded Oneworld, my first impact was the newness of it all. With the new boat smell and crisp well-appointed furnishings, it felt majestic just being there. As I moved through the cabins, it was evident that many years of experience resulted in the creation of this superyacht for it was like no other.
Every single luxury wasn’t just put on this boat to be there, it has been thought out and strategically placed to maximize the ultimate in convenience. On other yachts, I’ve found you get on board, find a comfortable spot and there you sit whilst you cruise.
With Oneworld, I found myself wanting to move around the boat because there are multiple places with the utmost in comfort along with different vantage points where I wanted to spend time. Although I was only aboard for a few hours, I felt like I was on a mini holiday, with choices drenched in anticipation.
Every guest suite is adorned with an ensuite and they are not the tiny ones one would expect on a yacht. Instead, they are spacious with the finest of finishings and not one bedroom is without deluxe furniture and accessories right down to TV’s and custom lighting in every room.
For a unique wedding venue, private event or for the ultimate in corporate occasions, I couldn’t imagine a grander venue or experience. Individuals, who have the finest of homes and find holiday accommodation hard to match, could comfortably charter this superyacht and feel privileged.
I was only on the yacht for a brief voyage around the Gold Coast Broadwater and it was an absolute pleasure.
This vessel is sure to put Australia on the map when it comes to nurturing our tourism industry from a Global perspective. I believe it to be the diamond of the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous 2018 event, which is aimed at promoting Australian yachting internationally.
