Esteemed charter yacht Panthalassa has witnessed recurring and expanding popularity as a vessel featuring three decks, eloquently expressing her prowess for function and fashion.
Designed with every kind of sea perceived, the 184-foot beauty—built by Perini Navi in 2010 with Naval Architect Ron Holland—accommodates 12 guests with 10 attentive crew members.
“Panthalassa is a great family yacht,” said Panthalassa Captain Bill Bailey. “She has so much open deck space and the cabin configuration makes her ideal for charter. She is incredibly light and airy, and her design is not overly complicated, it’s simple and elegant.”
Being the ideal boat for family anniversaries, groups of friends reuniting, couples’ retreats, or even a rewarding business respite for company employees, two master suites and four guest suites comprise the living arrangement of this striking super yacht.
The cabin configuration encompasses two master suites, two doubles, two convertible twin beds, and four Pullman beds—perfect flexibility in obliging a variety of groups and their specific requirements.
Decked out in chic-leather panelled walls, silk rugs, and marble clad bathrooms, ‘luxury-lifestyle’ is adhered to through the discerning design.
With a light-infused interior conceived by architectural experts Foster and Partners, the design assumes an identity completely unique and dazzling for all guests fortunate enough to enjoy her amenities.
The main salon with dining area—which has the capability to convert into a fully soundproofed cinema or conference boardroom facility—boasts a central oval staircase, that parades ingenious mastery of visual delight. This spectacular staircase links all three decks—serving simplicity and ease of the space—while the main salon bestows chances for family recreational entertainment and/or business-meeting austerity.
“The central staircase is particularly impressive and light floods all the way from the flybridge to the lower deck,” said Captain Bill. “The energy on board created by the dynamic new crew is also really exciting. She is a happy boat and guests who come aboard feel that. From a sailing perspective, she is a delight. Once the anchor is up and the toys are stowed, we can be ready to sail in around 10 minutes. She is a safe and sturdy yacht, so the motion is calmer and gentler than smaller yachts.”
With a seamless indoor-outdoor living layout, and a fantastically spacious fly bridge, the flow of the atmosphere means that even if a party member desires solitude, the lucidity of the interior and exterior permits that guests will always feel connected, experiencing the best of both worlds simultaneously.
Another aesthetic wonder of Panthalassa is her floating bar in the main salon—an attractive touch that will entice visitors to a few cocktails while relaxing in the gentle water.
Of course, part of a good yacht vacation is to experience the water, and like any renowned charter service, Panthalassa is host to an array of toys including wave runners, four SeaBobs, water-skis, wakeboards, paddleboards, inflatables, two 6.2-metre tenders, a trampoline, and six sets of dive gear for rendezvous diving.
If these activities fail to entice a guest’s interests, adding to her provision of water sport mania, Panthalassa has incredible beach equipment for the anticipated days of ‘voluntary laziness.’ Such items include full barbecue equipment—ideal for the guest wishing to unveil their culinary aptitude.
It’s clear to see that the brightness of Panthalassa’s design is contagious unto her character and attractiveness for repeat visitors.
This year, Panthalassa will be cruising Caribbean waters throughout the winter till 2019. Keep an eagle-eye out.
Panthalassa is available to charter through Y.CO from 200,000 USD per week.
