Aphrodite A is a luxury sailing super yacht launched at Vitters Shipyard Bv in the Netherlands and created by André Hoek Design Naval Architects in 1999. She is an Aluminum sloop conceived for world cruising, having an autonomy of 4,500 miles, the equivalent of not visiting a port for three months in a row. She is an expedition yacht able to circumnavigate the globe in complete comfort.
I’m starting to present with this post, some of the most beautiful custom sailing yachts in the world. I usually notice them at the various yacht shows and festivals. Their great majority sells in the million dollar price range.
As you see, when I find beautiful and representative pictures to illustrate the data, the article looks just fine. Remember that I’m not involved in the selling/chartering process unless specified.
Aphrodite A – Characteristics
The space is used for offering accommodation up to 8 passengers sleeping on board in comfortable staterooms, each of them with mini bar, intercom and more en suite facilities, while carrying 6 professional crew members to sail and to ensure a suitable service.
The cockpit dining tables convert to cocktail tables or lounging day beds. She has two saloons and four suites/staterooms/cabins. The interior is glossed wooden cherry, bathrooms have Carrara marble. Laundry room, media room, high storage capacity and a modern equipped galley with a spacious engine room are precious. She is sleek and beautiful.
