Alloy Yachts 32.40 m
AKIKO’s true gift is time away from the rush of the world to enjoy a journey of discovery with friends and family.
With slick, strong exterior lines this beautiful superyacht is made to explore. AKIKO offers a sumptuous adventure platform to the Australian experiential charter market. Built by Alloy Yachts, AKIKO was first launched in 2007 and went on to pick up five major honours at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.
The 111ft /34m Custom expedition yacht features a sophisticated exterior design and engineering by Gregory Marshall. Previously named VvS1 (after a grade of diamonds), she was proudly introduced to the Australian charter market following an extensive refit in New Zealand in 2016-2017. Spacious living areas lead to full height windows dare the passing views to vie for your attention with the impeccably decorated interior. AKIKO is versatile enough to enter small bays, anchor behind coral atolls or for game fishing over submarine reefs.
The warm colours of Australia accent an interior which is at once strikingly-modern, and invitingly-luxurious. A generous owner’s suite stretches full beam across the main deck, and four guest cabins complete the accommodation, with room for 10 live-aboard guests housed in vibrant, individual spaces.
The interior timber joinery is of American white oak panels with a white stain, and finished with the grain exposed and slightly raised. Wenge cabinetry is featured throughout the guest areas. The bamboo interior soles are laid in 90mm planks with wenge inlays and matt finished.
Her accommodation includes a master suite on the bridge deck, 1 VIP cabin on the main deck and three guest cabins forward on the lower deck, all with en-suites.
The yacht’s luxury saloon and dining area for ten guests are on the main deck. The galley is situated on the main deck between the dining room and aft deck dining area. Meals can be served directly to the interior or exterior servery bars forward and aft of the galley. A Teppanyaki bar is located on the fly bridge. Dive equipment and compressor are located in the lazarette.
AKIKO is fitted with active roll stabilisers and carries 34000 litres of fuel. She cruises at 11 knots and has an extended range of 4300 nautical miles. Outside docking stations are located on her port and starboard bridge wings and a further station aft on the bridge deck. Fresh water storage capacity is 7,000 litres and is supplied by two water makers, which produce 13000 litres per day.
With an onboard private chef preparing a menu designed around your palate, and five additional crew to cater to your every need, AKIKO delivers an opportunity to revel in spending time with the ones you love most. Onboard tenders, jet skis, kayaks, stand up paddleboards, an onboard dive master and scuba gear will all add to the experience – but AKIKO’s true gift is time away from the rush of the world to enjoy a journey of discovery with friends and family.
Her large beam of 7.8m offers expansive space unusual to a 35m superyacht. The superyacht AKIKO is also an ideal fishing experience vessel, for adventures in the Kimberley, Western Australia and further afield in the South Pacific. While wrestling in that great catch, you can make use of the spacious cockpit on the aft deck, which also has fridge/freezers and live bait tanks.
AKIKO has luxurious accommodation for up to 10 guests and 6 crew. AKIKO’s accommodation includes a master suite on the bridge deck, 1 VIP cabin on the main deck and three guest cabins forward on the lower deck, all with en-suites.
