Berthon, AGLAIA and I are a trio that go back more years than I care to remember. I was a junior broker at Berthon in Lymington back in 1980, and continued to collaborate with the Berthon brokerage team after I relocated to Mallorca with my family (in 1991).
This is when I first became involved with AGLAIA. Originally called OCEAN PHOENIX 2, she was the second of the Phoenix 77’ class. I was closely involved with Berthon when they sold her older sister ship in 1998 and was working with Berthon when we sold OCEAN PHOENIX 2 in 2005. It is under her second ownership that AGLAIA was given her current name, before I sold her in 2014 – again with Berthon!
It is therefore a real pleasure to find myself involved in the sale of this magnificent yacht today, this time as the Managing Broker of Berthon Spain in Palma. It is fair to say that I know AGLAIA very well indeed and would like to highlight some of her unique advantages and features.
AGLAIA was carefully thought out by the first owner and her designer. She is a true sailing yacht. The hull and rig design provide excellent sailing performance. Whilst offering this great performance, she was also conceived to be easily sailed and to be “owner driven”.
Practical features include, her excellent engine room, the deep, safe, well protected cockpit, the large lazarette / stowage area and her twin aft helm positions.
Her lovely interior is finished with high quality cherry wood and her accommodation is light and attractive. Owners will appreciate the generous living spaces and flexible three cabin layout, each cabin with a good en-suite head & shower. The interior was totally refurbished in the 2016 refit at Berthon in the UK and benefits from interior designer Lola Beuyukian’s touch to provide lovely upgrades to the original build and fit out.
The crew on AGLAIA will certainly be happy. The aft crew area provides a dedicated crew dinette, large double crew cabin with heads, and is adjacent to the galley and engine room.
AGLAIA has benefited from substantial refits, further upgrades and continual maintenance over the last five years. She is truly excellent condition, and really has never looked better!
AGLAIA offers her new owner the freedom to cruise in any climate. She comes fully equipped with a fantastic blue water specification, bags of storage, a great rig set up, protection from the elements and so much more!
Whilst much water has passed beneath her keel, she is in excellent operational and cosmetic shape and she is ready to take on new adventures.
I’d love the opportunity to show you around AGLAIA. Please contact me for further information and to book a viewing.
