From the elegant baroque furnishings and flamed mahogany panelling, to the luxurious owner’s cabins, no detail was overlooked in the design and appointment of this vessel. Featuring spacious suites for 12 guests, including two owner’s suites, six decks, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a Jacuzzi on the upper deck, an elevator and lounges throughout, Apoise is perfect for cruising in comfort and entertaining in style.
The current refit will not only see the addition of a new stern beach with a sauna and indoor lounge, but also adds a an additional master suite with a massage room on the upper deck. A new glass enclosed gym will be added to her sundeck.
The superyacht’s wide beam – close to 43 feet (13 m) – translates into an unusually spacious interior, with numerous large cabins and lounge areas. Apoise has a cruising speed of 14 knots and 190,000-liter fuel capacity, giving it a 5,000 nm range at 12 knots. The yacht has two 14-person Denship tenders and one 15- and one 8-person Novurania tenders.
When relaunched, Apoise will be available for charter through International Yacht Register.
