New to the Australian and South Pacific charter market is the 35m (115 ft) Princess Iluka. With her sumptuous interior and sleek exterior, the superyacht will not fail to impress. Built originally in Tasmania in 1979 from Tasmanian Oak and Huon Pine, the transformation is nothing short of striking – with a genuine claim as a piece of Australian history.
The keel came from one single tree, believed to be 750 years old and once harvested, had to cure for two years until building could commence. Princess Iluka was blessed with a particularly beautiful hull shape which is a classic clipper bow and therefore a great foundation.
A major re-construction has taken place over a number of years including new engineering systems, electrical and electronic systems, new interior and exterior paint work. Princess Iluka is fitted with state of the art electronics including two satellite communication systems and an entertainment server. Experienced construction manager, Stewart Dorman was called in two and a half years ago to undertake this massive refit.
With an interior design and exterior styling by Bernie Cohen, the look created is a successful blend of modern and formal finishes. Guests will be delighted with the many outdoor spaces all designed with relaxed cruising in mind – the upper deck with sun lounges and barbeque or the lower deck with spa area and outdoor dining.
The interior exudes luxury in every area and will please the most discerning of charter clients. Up to 10 guests can be accommodated in 5 en-suited cabins. The master stateroom on the lower deck area boasts a king size bed, lounge area and large windows to take in the sea views. All watersport needs are covered including scuba diving.
