49m Motor yacht BLU 470 is a fantastic yacht with an outstanding selection of water toys and lavish amenities

Motor Yacht BLU470

Have fun on every deck of BLU 470. This glorious superyacht was rebuilt in 2008 and won awards for her gorgeous new design. She had her upper deck extended and interior restyled by Patrick Knowles Design. BLU 470 can comfortably accommodate 10 guests in five cabins, is fully air conditioned and carries an amazing array of water toys. This superyacht is 50m (163ft) long and was originally launched in 1990 by Feadship, a well-known Dutch shipyard. Did you know that BLU 470 won the Show Boats International Award for the best refit?

The navy-blue hull sparkles in the sunlight while the brilliant white of the upper decks contrast beautifully. Once on board BLU 470, the décor, furniture and furnishings give guests the impression of opulence, luxury and the assurance of a great time ahead.

Lounges, dining areas and places to relax

The main saloon had a dividing wall which has now been taken out to create an open plan space with fully stocked wine cabinet. This cabinet holds up to 250 bottles and is an interesting focal point in the saloon. Aft of the saloon is a comfortable lounging area while forward, a formal dining table and chairs have been installed.

Enjoy the whitewashed panelling and white overheads which complement the cream sofas and navy/white striped armchairs beautifully. A luxurious blue carpet gives this area a touch of colour making everything look crisp, clean and fresh. The nautical touch of driftwood-esque furniture adds an airy and light atmosphere to this particular room.

In the contemporary sky lounge, there are also whitewashed panels along with light carpets oozing a vision of modernity. This is also the yacht’s entertainment centre with a wet bar aft, a circular games table, as well as sofas and a large plasma television.

All exterior areas have been updated too with casual seating and a wet bar on the main aft deck. The upper deck is always the heart of luxury superyachts where you’ll see a fabulous al fresco dining area as you step out of the sky lounge. The sundeck above provides a shaded area on this deck, ideal for socialising, having a quiet drink or relaxing under one of the large parasols.

Charming accommodation

BLU470 has opulent accommodation comprising of a master suite, three double cabins and one convertible twin cabin. Carpets and upholstery are in blue, cream and grey stripes, very soothing, relaxing colours. In the master suite which is on the main deck, a private office with captivating views can be used to keep in touch with family back home. There are also a his and hers bathrooms, so lots of space to keep personal toiletries.

Timber panelling adorns the walls in all guest suites with cream being the main colour. Striped navy and red throws add a splash of colour while still retaining an uncluttered and peaceful atmosphere.

A most beautiful sun deck

The sun deck on BLU 470 has sun pads forward so guests can enjoy the rapidly changing scenery. Work out in a shaded fitness area on a variety of gym equipment or just relax in the bubbling Jacuzzi. Why not pamper yourself by having a soothing massage, these take place behind a screen so you have complete privacy.

There’s always plenty to do when on board a luxury superyacht charter. Check out the CD and DVD library, watch satellite TV or listen to your favourite music using the iPod dock. With Wi-Fi and internet available, you can still play games, keep in touch with friends or pinpoint your exact location.

Water toys and tenders

No superyacht charter vacation would be complete without having the opportunity to play on water toys or tenders. BLU 470 has everything from wave runners, Seabobs, water skis, a water swing and paddle boards. A new 3- foot Intrepid tender is on board. It can reach speeds of 55 knots with an engine that sounds just like a racing car, awesome!

There’s a large swim platform, a beach set up with portable furniture, gazebos and Zero Speed stabilisers too. With all the latest water toys on board BLU470, an inflatable kayak, a dinghy, double towing tubes and a kiddie pool, there’s never a dull moment. Dive into magical dive sites, snorkel in the surreal waters to see lots of marine life or sit on deck with a fishing rod to see what you can catch.
