56m/183ft luxury yacht INSIGNIA (ex.HANSE) is available for Eastern Mediterranean charter. Built by Elsflether Werft & Co KG in 1979 and last refitted in 2007 with Luiz De Basto Designs responsible for her interior and exterior styling, this classic proves as enticing as any modern superyacht, and just as capable and efficient.
The extensive and characteristic main salon will leave a lasting impression on luxury yacht charter guests: mirrored ceilings add the illusory depth and the spiral staircase that separates the formal dining area from the lounge is a dramatic addition to already atmospheric surroundings.
There is a large screen plasma TV and a comprehensive library for books, music and DVDs that will entertain guests during transit and languid evenings when serenity is savoured after a bustling day.
When guests want to divide into smaller groups, the sky lounge is the ideal indoor retreat with its seating arrangement designed for social interaction. The furniture can be easily changed around so that everyone can enjoy the home cinema system with overhead projector and surround sound.
While the interior design nods to her past with muted colours and opulent décor, the exterior decking and furnishings follow 21st Century trends by implementing bold accents against the pale teak floor.
With the two tenders housed on the main deck aft, the upper deck hosts the alfresco dining with seating for up to 14 guests. The adjacent wet bar will have the perfect complement to the evening meal, or quench thirst while lounging on the seating in the brilliant Grecian sunlight.
The sky deck offers the best views of anywhere on the yacht, and for this reason alone the Jacuzzi is worth a visit, with uninterrupted views of Eastern Mediterranean destinations such as Hvar in Croatia or Marmaris in Turkey. Take an afternoon nap on the sun pads or sun loungers and recharge for a night in the bustling port towns, where the restaurants, clubs and casinos will make your charter truly unique.
Gym equipment can also be located on the skydeck and guests can follow up a work routine with time spent in the sauna.
The choice selection of water toys will entertain for hours and create the opportunity to explore the Mediterranean coast in closer detail. The toy chest contains:
- 2 x Waverunners
- 2 x jet-skis
- 2 x kayaks
- water skis, and
- inflatable and towable toys
No guest goes unspoiled aboard this beautiful superyacht: each of the 7 guest cabins (4 double cabins and 3 twin cabins) has en-suite facilities and the soft beds and lavish wood panel surroundings make for a cosy retreat every night.
