IYC has welcomed the head-turning, 171-foot Palmer Johnson DB9 to its charter fleet. Bookings are available this summer in the West Mediterranean at a lowest weekly base rate of about $276,000.

DB9 is a 2010 build that most recently was refitted in 2019. Accommodations are for 10 guests in five staterooms, and the yacht charters with 11 crew.

True to its exterior profile, DB9 is a speedster for its size, with a top-end speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 22 knots.

Onboard guest amenities include an open-air cinema on the sundeck, an infinity hot tub on the aft deck, a flybridge hot tub and a 25-foot foredeck pool.

Let’s talk tenders and toys: DB9 carries a 21-foot Castoldi jet tender, a pair of Sea-Doos, two Seabobs, four paddleboards, an inflatable kayak, a Lift eFoil and various tow toys.
