The popular and proven charter yacht Surprise has been renamed as yacht KOI. The Motor Yacht KOI (ex Surprise) is an explorer / expedition style motor yacht that has been based in the South Pacific for many years, proving itself as a popular charter yacht. Motor yacht KOI has now been renamed and has also repositioned, available for luxury yacht charters in the Caribbean this winter. The yacht is also available for a Christmas or New Year’s charter (but is not available for Charter to U.S residents while in U.S. waters.)
The 35.05m (115ft) explorer motor yacht KOI was built by McMullen and Wing in 2001 and received a refit in 2009 in New Zealand which included Zero speed stabilizers and new interior. In 2011, superyacht KOI received a 5 year ABS Survey and partially painted exterior. Yacht KOI was designed by Ward Setzer and built by McMullen and Wing to Ann Motion designed her interior.
Luxury charter yacht KOI was specifically designed for dual roles – both for serious expedition adventures and also luxurious comfort when cruising. She therefore is a safe, strong, seaworthy yacht, capable of long range journeys in comfort and style.
Motor Yacht KOI (ex Surprise) provides stylish interior accommodation for 9 charter guests in 4 double cabins. Her owner’s main suite occupies the full width of the yacht’s beam and runs off the main deck. The main suite includes a private study, lounge area and bathroom ensuite and two large windows to port and starboard provide a spectacular view. Luxury motor charter yacht ‘KOI’ also has a further three lovely guest cabins on the lower deck, which are conveniently accessible from the main lobby and the spiral staircase on the main deck. Two of the cabins have double berths and the third is twin bedded, with a fold down Pullman berth. Each cabin has its own ensuites in glass and corian. All of KOI’s cabins include full climate control and air conditioning, individual electrical entertainment systems, and phone and internet accessibility.
Yacht KOI conveys an interior atmosphere and styling inspired by that of a modern beach vacation house, with her neutral and natural tones and lavish Pacific Oceania themes conveying an inviting and relaxing ambience. Her wood panelling is steamed European beech veneer and various selected inlays, while for decoration she displays superb historical maps and artworks which add a touch of elegance and sophistication. She offers a clever collection of both casual, formal and el fresco dining options on three of her four main decks and her powerful climate control systems keep internal temperatures perfect for all aboard.
