    The 154-foot Delta Usher is being offered for charter this winter in Florida and the Bahamas, and the weekly base rate of $225,000 includes use of the owner’s 54-foot Grand Banks Eastbay as a day boat.

    Usher used to charter as Mr. Terrible and recently was sold to a new owner, who changed the name and brought the Eastbay along with a new 22-foot custom tender that arrived last month. The new captain aboard Usher is Glenn Allen, who previously oversaw the charter operation aboard the 146-foot Feadship Harle, and who will rotate duty at the helm with Capt. Sean Noel.

    Ten to 12 guests are accommodated in five staterooms aboard Usher. The décor remains “Polynesian chic” and filled with exotic woodwork, just as it was with the previous owner. Amenities include VSAT-supported Wi-Fi, zero-speed stabilizers, an elevator and a sundeck hot tub.
