AQUIJO is a sophisticated charter sailing yacht with the space and amenities you’d expect of a motor yacht
The 86m sailing yacht AQUIJO, built by Vitters and Oceanco, and only launched in 2016, is the largest high-performance ketch in the world and is luxuriously appointed, making her an excellent all-round charter yacht.
AQUIJO can accommodate up to 12 guests in seven cabins, which can be adapted to suit your party. The master suite, set quite apart from the other cabins on the bridge deck, comes with his and her bathrooms, a private elevator and its own terrace, complete with a gimbaled dining table so you don't spill your Champagne as you watch the sunset.
Unlike many yachts, which promise state-of the-art TVs, the rest of the cabins, which can be made into VIPs or sectioned off into smaller cabins, are TV-free, adding to the sense of escapism. Two TVs are however available to be installed upon request.
Don’t worry though, if you’re really in need of some screen time, head to the bar on the main deck, which has a retractable TV and sofas that seat 12, giving it a cool VIP club vibe. This is just one of three outdoor bars, meaning you’ll never go thirsty.
AQUIJO’s standout features include a chic beach club with an ocean-view Jacuzzi, plus steam room, sauna and lounge - virtually unheard of on a sailing yacht.
The main deck aft is the social hub of the yacht and features a 24-seater dining table with a retractable skylight, or you can head on up to the sundeck on the flybridge for a dip in the Jacuzzi or to lounge around on the sunpads.
The interiors of AQUIJO, designed by Dölker & Voges, have fun touches, such as neon high-gloss lacquer headboards, alongside contemporary wood with accents of chrome, giving a modern and fresh feel.
If you can tear yourself away from the yacht, you may want to take a look in the garage before you dive in the sea, as it is filled with lots of water toys, from fun inflatables to wakeboards and premium dive gear.
