Here, we take a look on board the 86-metre super sailing yacht Aquijo. Built jointly by Oceanco and Vitters Shipyard in 2016, Aquijo is the largest high-performance, ketch-rigged sailing yacht built to date and the sixth largest sailing yacht in the world.

Aquijo also boasts a vast aft deck with a selection of seating areas, al fresco dining for up-to 24 guests, an outdoor grill setup, and a bar.
