Luxury Lake Yacht Rentals Introduced At Lake Powell

Axiom Star luxury yacht
There is always something new to see and do at Lake Powell. Here's the latest:
"A new level of luxury is coming to the waters of magnificent Lake Powell with the addition of the new Axiom Star fleet, a one-of-a-kind collection of lake yachts. Guests can now book a seven-night summer vacation on one of Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas’ new lavish Axiom Star lake yachts."

That quote comes from this news release provided by Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas. Here's another:

"The 65-foot Axiom Star fleet is available for a minimum seven-day rental during the summer and a minimum five-day rental for the rest of the year. The vessels are designed as an ultimate indulgence with all the amenities of a high-end home. Every Axiom Star lake yacht features four staterooms, sleeping eight for the utmost intimacy. Each room has a queen size bed, flat-screen television and DVD player. The remainder of the boat is comprised of two bathrooms, a sitting room with a tracking satellite TV system and surround music system."

We've pulled a photo of one of yachts to illustrate this post. Read the entire news release.

Castle Rock Cut Is Being Deepened At Powell

Lake Powell's water level has been low for the past few years, and will probably remain low into the near future. The National Park Service is taking advantage of that situation to deepen the "Castle Rock Cut." When the lake begins filling this spring, The Cut should serve as an effective shortcut from Wahweap Bay to uplake areas, saving some 10 miles of boating.

The Deseret News has this article about the work, which is expected to take about 4 months and will lower the elevation of the cut to approximately 3,580 feet (above sea level).

In past years, when the lake level was higher, The Cut was a popular passage that saved boaters time and fuel. The video below shows the experience kayaking through The Cut.
