MAIN AND SPECIAL FEATURES

 

Extended autonomous cruising is the basic concept of APHRODITE A. Three months onboard without the need to call at a port or bunker station make her the ideal circumnavigator. The yacht is divided into 5 watertight compartments, thus guaranteeing maximum safety. The interior of highly polished cherry wood, white ceilings and maple floors give the yacht a luxurious elegance. Below the waterline in the bow there are two forward facing cameras, allowing guests to watch and film dolphins riding the bow pressure wave from the comfort of the television room. Each spacious guest stateroom has an intercom, wall safe, minibar and flat screen TV/DVD.

 

 

REMARKS

 

The luxury sailing yacht APHRODITE A is a beautifully conceived aluminum sloop, designed and built by the premier Dutch team of Hoek/Vitters. She is an impressive world-cruiser with all the modern systems and amenities that ensure complete comfort with performance sailing. APHRODITE A also has exceptional security features and a unique cockpit, built specially for deep-sea fishing.

 

 

 

Luxury sailing yacht APHRODITE A sports a sleek, contemporary exterior style. The pilothouse/deck salon is low enough to provide good visibility from the twin helms and the carbon rig with in-boom mainsail furling and captive winches make sailing a breeze. Two recessed deck cranes easily deploy the tenders and other toys. The Euro-style transom has a large platform which is the “beach” for water activities. The transom door opens to a stand-up lazarette. Inside is an impressive station for making fishing flies and preserving fresh-caught fish; the dive compressor and sports equipment also are stored here. The cockpit dining tables convert to cocktail tables or lounging

 

day beds. This versatility is also apparent in the retractable cockpit Bimini, which provides shade or sun for perfect alfresco living.

 

The interior of APHRODITE A is comfortable and relaxing. It boasts a classic style with beautiful high-gloss cherry throughout; the bathrooms feature Carrera marble. Her expansive deck salon is filled with natural light and her smaller lower salon is outfitted as a media room. Four staterooms with en-suite baths accommodate up to eight. A separate office, day head, and laundry room elevate APHRODITE A to a functional level.
