The 34.5m/113.2ft luxury charter yacht PRINCESS ILUKA is undergoing an extensive refit to make her a six-star haven on the water for her Owners and guests wishing to explore the beautiful charter ground of Australia alike.
The pandemic has proven that luxury yacht charters are the ultimate choice for luxury and adventure for holidaymakers the world over, and as a result, there has been a surge in popularity that is expected to last for years to come.
Motor yacht PRINCESS ILUKA was originally built in 1979 and is the world’s longest vessel to be made from Huon pine, with the keel constructed from 750-year-old spotted gum. Australia-based designer Keeley Green will be in charge of refurbishing the interiors while retaining the grandeur and spirit of the decade in which she was made. Ms Green already has a successful wallpaper and fabric wholesale business in partnership with Italian-based artist Amanda Ferragamo, and she is already at work on several other luxury yacht interiors.
The interiors for M/Y PRINCESS ILUKA will feature sleek curves in the furnishings to mimic the sweeping exterior lines while also ensuring the comfort and safety of guests as they move about during the cruise. Reflective surfaces enhance the sense of space and light within for a practical and desirable living environment.
The selection of water toys includes two jet skis, wakeboards, paddleboards and a slide in addition to a 9m/29.6ft chase boat – perfect for getting up close to the reefs and snorkelling spots in the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsundays, Ningaloo Reef and the Kimberley region.
Once her refit is complete, luxury yacht PRINCESS ILUKA will accommodate up to 10 guests across 5 en-suite cabins furnished with high-quality fabrics and leather wall panelling. The crew accommodation provides for 6 to ensure first-class service throughout the cruise.
