Written by Laura Nicholls

Since her owner stepped on board from her home berth in Athens earlier this year, the 55.2-metre charter yacht Geco had a short summer in the Mediterranean where SuperYacht Times was given a first look inside.

Here is where all guests areas eventually connect, including the several communal spaces or six staterooms. For those who stay overnight, there is the master suite, full-beam VIP, two doubles and two twins with Pullman to choose from.Geco yacht hall and staircasePhoto: IYCGeco yacht stateroomPhoto: IYCThe interior decor is described as glamorous with a perfect mash-up of classic French and contemporary Italian styles. The wooden French boiseries, luxury Italian marbles and bronzed metal details throughout the yacht are just some of the high-end materials used to complement the predominantly neutral colour palette.Geco yacht stateroomPhoto: IYCGeco yacht bathroomPhoto: IYCTo make the most of the outdoors, guests can use the upper deck and its multi-functional design that allows for the space to be separated to become an indoor or outdoor lounge and dining area. The upper deck is lined with an uninterrupted bar and is connected to the yacht's Buddha bar lounge. Further up on the sundeck, a custom-made Jacuzzi hot tub and an outdoor gym area can be found.Geco yacht sternPhoto: IYCGeco yacht cruisingPhoto: IYCEnhancing the opportunity for her guests to stay sporty during their time on board, Geco is completed by a fully-stocked toy store. The line-up includes Jet skis, a Flyboard, an inflatable waterslide and climbing wall, transparent kayaks and snorkelling and diving gear. The added bonus is the super-speedy 40-knot Evo 43 tender chase boat, Khaleesi.
