Yacht Charter

Striking, powerful, and with one of the most beautiful interiors of any yacht her size, world-renowned MY SIROCCO

From the hugely respected Dutch Heesen Yachts shipyard – makes for an envy-inducing and wonderful charter option for family and friends. Spread out over three highly luxurious and spacious decks, every guest’s whim is catered for.

So-called after the southern Saharan winds, this feeling of warmth and African exotique is encapsulated within the interior design of the yacht, the product of the genius Omega Architects. Every design element has been carefully considered, and the use of the incredible Makassar wood, selection of natural stones, leather, and marble is truly exquisite.

Dual transom stairs – with protective gates - lead up from the extendable swim platform onto the spacious main deck, whose enclosed, built-in U-shaped seating makes for a relatively private and very comfortable al fresco dining option. From here, the teak continues forward, leading guests to the bow on the bridge deck – accessed by exterior staircases. Here, there is a U-shaped sofa and coffee table and large sun pad, a beautiful area on board where one can enjoy the warming sea breeze while underway, or a private and romantic cocktail to watch the sunset.

Also accessed from the main deck aft is the bridge deck aft, again, very spacious, and with a more informal seating area and removable bimini. This deck also doubles up as a large exterior party area and is also adjacent to the master suite, whose large windows astern provide an 1800 view of the passing seascapes, truly magnificent to wake up to.

The sundeck is also expansive: there is a large spa jacuzzi and surrounding sun pads aft, a sky lounge amidships – housing the gym where, with all windows open onto the deck and birdseye view, provides a workout to remember – and semi-circular seating forward. This is a yacht of vast entertaining and socialising possibilities.

The warm earthy tones of the saloon, and wide beam, instils an instantly calming atmosphere. Beautiful wicker sofas surround a large coffee table, where guests can either enjoy the state-of-the-art entertainment centre, part of the 2016 refit or sit at the fully stocked bar. There is a second, and more informal saloon, on the upper deck, which can be turned into a cinema.

All cabins are en suite, and whereas the master suite is unusually on the upper deck, the remaining guest cabins are located below deck; the two VIP staterooms are identical, both with double baths. Rather uniquely, and continuing the African theme, the double and twin cabin has walls lined with bamboo. Each has private airconditioning, AV systems, and WiFi. Each is also uniquely decorated with African artefacts, colours, and patterns, and make for a very impressive sight.

Built to ABS class, and with her zero speed stabilizers, MY SIROCCO is a very comfortable cruise – a maximum speed of 26 kts is matched to a cruising speed of 22kts. She also has a garage full of water toys for guest enjoyment, including waterskis, wakeboards, snorkelling gear, an inflatable doughnut and sofa, as well as inflatable slide, and SeaBobs, making the ocean your playground.
