Sailing yacht of the Month: The 56 metre Panthlassa

Written by Charl van Rooy

Few sailing yachts can keep up with the impressive track record that the 56 metre Panthalassa can boast about. From fully booked charter seasons to achieving results on the regatta scene; this 2009 built beauty certainly deserves a closer look.

As one of Perini Naviโ€™s first all-aluminium yachts in their successful 56 metre range, Panthalassa can offer her guests not only incredibly spacious areas on boards, but do so with a touch of performance and no small amount of comfort at sea. Her ketch rig makes for easy manoeuvring, suited to relaxed island cruising as well as more intense regatta racing.

An impressive feature on deck is the abundance of outdoor social areas on board Panthalassa. Exterior lounges, sunbathing and dining areas means that guests are able to experience the thrills and freedom of sailing in absolute comfort. Guests can choose to soak up the sun and enjoy the stunning panoramic views from the flybridge above, or a calmer setting for unwinding below in the man cockpit.

The phenomenal interior by Lord Norman Foster achieves a balance of light, structure and comfort. Inspired by lighthouse design, natural light is filtered through the use of skylights in the deck above, and a floating bar in the main salon defies gravity.

Panthalassa comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests, making her ideally suited to large groups of friends or family gatherings. The six cabins below of near equal size are tastefully decorated with rich materials such as leather and silk. On stand by are 10 professional crew members to ensure each guest has a memorable experience on board.

The fun doesnโ€™t stop when Panthalassa does however. Once anchored, a selection of watersport toys are available for those seeking some adventure. On offer are jet skiโ€™s, SeaBobs, water-skis and two 6.2 metre tenders.

The yacht is for charter throughY.COand is in the currently available in the Caribbean where she will remain until late April. Charter rates start at USD 225,000 p/week.
