THE 20 BEST CHARTER YACHTS AVAILABLE IN REMOTE DESTINATIONS

30 September 2019

Explore Perth and Western Australia on board Akiko, a 34.18-metre luxury expedition yacht that can sleep up to 10 guests in five cabins.

Delivered by Alloy Yachts in 2007, she underwent a refit last year with McMullen & Wing, which gave her a colourful interior with a lot of art features. She boasts a spacious dining area with a hatch into the galley, a large TV lounge with plenty of seating in which to entertain friends with movies, cocktails and games.

Her sundeck has an array of sun loungers, alfresco dining and a Teppanyaki grill. For those who want to discover Australia from the water, her collection of water toys includes two Waverunners, two kayaks, two paddleboards, two surfboards and scuba gear for up to 10 divers.
