Classic 1970s superyacht PARVATI (ex.ELISABETH F, SANTA CRUZ TRES) has returned from her refit in brand new condition and is based in the Eastern Mediterranean. She has been highly recommended by the brokers at CharterWorld, who know the charter market inside out and inspect rental boats themselves. Here is why:
Her Owner has meticulously maintained her annually since 2017 and most recently she has received anti-rust treatment to the hull and superstructure, a repaint and complete replacement of all teak decking, totalling 187m²/2012.8ft². A full service to her engine and generators has her working better than ever, and she has low fuel consumption to ensure that charter groups on a budget spend more of their money at the destination than getting there.
The elegant interiors provide guests a warm and welcoming lounge on the main deck aft and a TV lounge on the upper deck forward. The rich wooden panelling is complemented by fabrics in the traditional nautical colours of white and navy. The formal dining area seats eight with everything set out to make every meal a special event.
The newly refurbished exteriors provide a group of 10 plenty of space to relax in the sunshine and admire the views in such scenic destinations as Croatia and Montenegro, all encompassed in glassy turquoise waters. The main deck aft is furnished with a grand alfresco dining areas for everyone to dine together in the shade, while sunbeds cover the foredeck and the upper deck aft is a casual social area with all the benefits of the other outdoor spaces combined and the addition of a wet bar so that you have everything on hand.
There is a great collection of water toys on board with plenty of recent additions, and the selection includes:
- 1 x Sea-Doo RXP 300HP (two-seater)
- 1 x Sea-Doo GTXIS Limited 260HP (three-seater)
- 2 x Sea-Doo underwater scooters
- 2 x Stand-up paddleboards
- a wake board
- water skis
- Scuba diving equipment for a couple, and
- inflatable and towable toys
The timeless accommodation provides for up to 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins. As the Master suite is on the main deck forward, it benefits from the full beam to treat its guests to a king-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with his-and-hers sinks and a bathtub perfect for soaking in after a day of Scuba diving or resting on a Dodecanese beach in the sunshine.
The rest of the guest accommodation is placed on the lower deck and has an unusual cabin layout – a double and twin cabin forward and aft of the engine room – allowing two nuclear families an additional degree of separation for early bed times or late night partying without disturbing the rest of the group.
The crew, amenities, condition and price are all superb, making luxury yacht PARVATI one of the best value-for-money luxury yachts that come highly recommended by brokers as well as previous guests.
