More and more luxury yachts can say that they’ve starred briefly in films these days, but few can boast an entire series dedicated to that antics on board like charter yacht RHINO – better known under the name ‘OHANA’ – in the second series of ‘Below Deck‘. She is currently available for charter in the Bahamas.
Built in 1998, this classic 47m/154ft Admiral superyacht has been fastidiously maintained by her Owners over the years, keeping her in tip-top shape. Her last comprehensive refit in 2014 got her looking her best before filming the Second Series of Below Deck from August until November that same year. But there’s more than just appearances with motor yacht RHINO; find out about what attracted – and still attracts – the jet set to her.
Donald Starkey is a renowned name in the yachting industry, and when it comes to luxury yacht RHINO he produced both the interiors and the exterior styling. For the interiors, there is a combination of beautiful traditional surroundings within the main deck salon and some of the guest cabins, while the sky lounge and Master suite are contemporary and bright, contrasting jovial artwork with white environs.
The formal dining area is rich in detail, drawing guests into an intimate atmosphere for memorable meals with cherished ones around two circular table. The family can nestle into the plush sofas in the main salon, or head up to the skylounge for the gaming table, after-dinner drinks at the wet bar and a film on the massive widescreen TV.
M/Y RHINO is equipped with top-notch entertainment systems, including a Kaleidescape movie server that offers more than 300 films in unparalleled audio and video quality. iPod docking stations feature throughout the bedrooms and shared guest spaces for personalised entertainment, and an Xbox with Kinect will keep younger individuals engaged while cruising between destinations.
The engineering is also impressive and superyacht RHINO cruises at 13 knots with a top speed of 16.5 knots. She has a transatlantic range of 3,500 nautical miles, meaning that there’s no need to stop to refuel while cruising through the Mediterranean or the remote Caribbean islands.
There is ample deck space onboard for hosting dockside parties, and the sundeck will come into its own with the sunbed-surrounded raised Jacuzzi and plentiful seating, with one round after another of sensational cocktails produced by the nearby wet bar. A barbeque grill lets guests remain outside to enjoy the elements as they savour freshly caught fare – some treats that might even have been caught by the guests themselves.
Below, the shaded upper deck has a more sedate atmosphere yet is no less desirable and acts as a great extension to the skylounge with a widescreen TV to keep up with the latest sports. A grand alfresco dining table will beckon guests outside for meals by candlelight, and along the stern, a circular table and curving sofa create a space for family games and drinks.
There are five beautiful en-suite cabins to sleep up to 10 guests onboard, consisting of a Master suite, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins that can be converted to doubles as required.
The Master Suite is the most enviable bedroom on board, finished in pristine white from floor to ceiling with a king-sized bed for a couple to lay their weary heads after celebrations long into the starry nights. Guests having trouble drifting off can watch a film on the widescreen TV, or head into the adjacent lounge for work and study or TV entertainment without disturbing the other occupant. The en-suite bathroom has a dressing table, his-and-hers sinks, a shower and a spa pool tub.
The double cabins have queen-sized beds and a more classic ambience with rich wooden panelling. The twin cabins are similar styles and have the same proportions, with TV entertainment and en-suite bathrooms to ensure guest privacy.
