This yacht was designed by the owner (who is a Naval Architect) with world renowned yacht designer Iñigo Echenique. The owner's cabin is as spacious as I have ever seen on a yacht of this size. Visitors also get the VIP treatment with all cabins having marble ensuite heads and separately controlled airconditioning. Even the crew quarters are ample.

Every cabin is equipped with a TV screen and DVD player.

The galley has electric induction rings that are safe to touch at full power.

Nothing is left to chance with two completely independent steering positions and all instruments duplicated in the bridge and the flybridge.

The ship's electrical and environmental systems are controlled via a touch sensitive control panel on the bridge. This vessel requires just one crew member and a nautically savvy owner to operate in complete safety.

Broker's Comments

This luxury cruiser in not a production yacht. It is a unique classic which, like many larger Super Yachts, is built for safety and luxury. It is a go-anywhere explorer yacht yet can be handled by just two people. In fact a remote control unit allows the vessel's engines and bow thrusters to be controlled from anywhere on the yacht.

It is difficult to describe the stunning combination of safety features and luxury without seeming to exaggerate. Three watertight bulkheads provide integrity and buoyancy. One massive bilge pump can be switched to pump from one or all of the watertight compartments. This is supplemented with one independent bilge pump in each compartment. I could go on and on but a visit is the only way to appreciate this yacht.

In the luxury department she has everything to please the most discerning of owners from beautiful onyx owner's head and shower to mahogany saloon floor. Her cutlery and crockery are monogrammed with the vessels name. If you want to stand out and impress friends and business associates then this is the perfect vessel.

It would cost more than 3 times this reduced price to build this vessel. It has just been ashore for annual servicing, anti-fouling and anodes changes in Jan 2014 and is kept in immaculate order.
