In this series of articles, we take a look at the best charter deals currently on offer in some of the best cruising hotspots in the world. What, Why, Where and Who forms the basis of the articles. This week we look at 55.5-metre Cynthia, currently available for charter with Northrop & Johnson.What is on offer?
Built by Feadship in 2005 to Lloyd’s Register from the drawing boards of the De Voogt naval architecture firm, Cynthia is a superlative example of quality Dutch craftsmanship. Previously named Twizzle, Drizzle, Issana, and Madsummer, this superyacht underwent an extensive refit earlier in 2018 which saw fresh Claudette Bonville-designed interiors installed on board.With five well-appointed staterooms, one of which is a forward-facing master suite located on the main deck, Cynthia is able to accommodate 10 overnight guests. Three VIP cabins, along with the master, all feature king-sized beds and en-suite facilities. The master’s cabin includes a unique feature - a day-head inside, while its en-suite includes an oversized bathtub, separate shower and a vanity. MCA compliant, Cynthia’s steel hull is powered by two CAT engines which allow her a top speed of around 15 knots, and a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. At cruise, the superyacht has a 4800 nm bluewater range and a crew of 13 on board at all times. Why do we think this is such a good idea?
Ordered to the tastes of an experienced yachtsman, Cynthia illustrates both the timeless beauty and durability of a Feadship. Decked out with oversized windows, the superyacht’s interior spaces are filled with natural light and adorned with a collection of artwork by Nantucket local, Eric Holch. When charter guests step aboard Cynthia, the first thing they might notice is the abundance of high-quality luxury materials onboard. Mother of pearl accents walnut flooring and stainless steel fixtures while cream coloured marbles keep everything cool.Photo: Northrop & JohnsonOutside spaces are plentiful and include perks such as jacuzzi on the sundeck and room for al-fresco dining. For those looking to stay in shape while on their charter vacation, Cynthia’s got an elliptical and a weightlifting setup. Additionally, there are zero speed stabilizers located below the waterline which keep everything stable up on deck. All in all, Cynthia has an enduring charm, a proven track record of safe and comfortable cruising, all the newest amenities one expects on a luxury vacation, and more.
