Broker’s Comments

Still in her original Ownership, this 2005 Aquastar 74 Mk.II by Aquastar combines supreme sea-keeping on a well-balanced, generously-keeled, semi-displacement hull. With four good-sized guest cabins, including a full-beam Master Stateroom amidships, VIP En-suite Stateroom in the bow and a third twin guest cabin aft, she can be handled by a couple, yet cruised by a family and friends.

Her vast flybridge deck has the benefit of the interior access stair, and a dinghy crane for tender stowage to clear the stern platform area. She also sports a double crew cabin, and ALKIONI has been maintained from new by a full-time skipper and mate.

Being a true semi-displacement hull form, the Aquastar 74’s shape promotes comfortable longer-distance passage –making, with the capacity to carry higher reserves of fuel and general loads, with none of the harder, slamming action of a full-planing hull section. Thus, such craft are the choice of the serious, cruising motor-yachter, and allow progress to be made in comfort even when the seas have picked up. To counteract beam roll, ALKIONI is fitted with Koopnautic fin stabilization, for comfortable passage-making. She has bow and stern thrusters for improved handling in close confines, and the two windlasses have also been upgraded to hydraulic operation to improve ease of setting and weighing.

Owner’s Comments

A robust boat that we sailed down the Bay from Guernsey to Greece – and have cruised extensively in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean since 2005. A family boat that our children and grandchildren loved spending weeks on board – even when long passages were involved. With the extra fuel capacity and the ability to produce large quantities of water, not only for passengers who could shower as if they were on a cruise ship, but also the boat could be kept pristine and clean. This made us independent of marinas for periods of up to three months during which ALKIONI was our home on the water.

Our anchors, with about 100 metres of chain – and it is the chain that does it, kept us steady in magical bays even when the Meltemi was Force 7 on occasion. A real blessing during the congested summer months and the restricted facilities on Greek islands. Our long-standing relationship with our crew of two mean’t continuity of care for all parts of the boat. Records of professional services are available, as are records of improvements over time.

After fifteen years of great memories and now a new set of changing priorities, we hope to see ALKIONI with new owners who will continue to enjoy this special motor yacht as much as we have.
