201' custom motor yacht ESMERALDA, built by Codecasa and fully refitted in 2000. She was previously named Taoey.
The M/Y Esmeralda provides an unbelievable travel experience that immerses you in unbridled luxury and style. Perfect for charter vacations on the Mediterranean or Caribbean Seas.
Your captain and crew team on board the super yacht Esmeralda are head and shoulders above the rest and the reason to see why is easy, Captain Michael Spiller at the helm since 1995, leads by example.
He's an easy going captain who is charming fun and professional. He's told me "Andrew during the day my crew are in their uniform and after 6:00 pm they all required to change into white dress uniforms with bars for the guests".
Captain Spiller has selected the right crew to correctly service his guests. "Andrew, we are a team so any in-house fighting ends immediately or someone gets a pink slip".
The team knows we work together towards the same goal and that goal is to serve guests better than any other charter yacht out there. "Andrew, you have seen the spreads we do for guests and they are over the top, but that is what they pay for. If a client goes to the day head (the wash hand basin on the day level and washes their hands, one of my crew has to go in afterwards without being seen and clean the whole room so well that those small water mark drops left on a basin after use have to all be whipped off so it looks as it the basin has just arrived from the factory".
Captain Spiller continues with "I feel I have the best crew in the world on board M/Y Esmeralda, they come to me to share ideas, to open their hearts to me as if I were their father and I appreciate their confidence in me."
I personally met Captain Spiller on board Esmeralda in 1995 and today he remains on board and this is the perfect charter yacht when you know the captain and crew have consistency. He loves his charter guests being on this super yacht Esmeralda.
