After the sailing yacht Aquijo launched in 2016, here’s what I wrote about her in Yachting magazine: “Aquijo is arguably the most impressive sailing yacht available for charter anywhere in the world.”
There’s still a case to be made today, as she heads to Papua New Guinea to offer charter itineraries this summer.
Aquijo is a serious sailing yacht, but she has spaces that are so large they feel like the ones aboard many motoryachts. Her amenities include a beach club with a steam room, sauna and hot tub; a dining room for 24 guests; three outdoor bars; and an elevator.
That a yacht of her caliber is going to a place as remote as Papua New Guinea creates a rare opportunity, especially for charter clients who enjoy water sports. The scuba diving and snorkeling in that part of the world are fantastic.
The lowest weekly base rate is €450,000 for 12 guests to charter Aquijo this summer in Papua New Guinea. Y.CO is the management company, and any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week on board.
