Step aboard AKIKO, a beautiful 34-meter custom expedition yacht that promises to take you on an unforgettable journey. Launched in 2007, this impressive Alloy yacht won five major honours at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards. AKIKO has maintained its superior presentation by completing an extensive refit and is proud to re-launch the ‘as new’ superyacht back into the charter market in 2023. The recent upgrades include a hull extension, a complete interior refit, and new paintwork.
AKIKO boasts a significantly sleek exterior and is built to explore remote regions. AKIKO is versatile enough to enter small bays, anchor behind coral atolls and navigate inland waterways with an impressive range and expedition capabilities. One of the highlights of AKIKO is its experienced crew, including a local guide specialising in adventurous expeditions through the Kimberley and partnering with experienced local knowledge in Papua New Guinea.
The yacht’s spacious living areas boast full-height windows that fill the impressive interior with natural light. The owner’s suite stretches full beam across the main deck, offering a generous space for relaxation and comfort, and four guest cabins complete the accommodation, with room for twelve live-aboard guests. AKIKO is fully equipped with various tenders depending on location, including a 7.5m Smuggler RIB Tender, 2 x 5.5m Barra boats and 1 x 10m Naiad RIB. AKIKO has various other equipment for charter guests depending on the cruising area.
AKIKO? The owners chose the name AKIKO originating from New Zealand. In Maori, Akiko means “at a distance from home,” which is a fitting name for a yacht that promises to take you on an unforgettable journey.
