With her classically elegant lines, opulent interiors and seemingly endless deck space, O’Ptasia is hot property on the charter yacht circuit for both her exceptional guest experience and majestic proportions. Built by Greek luxury yacht specialist Golden Yachts in 2018, she’s is the largest yacht in the company’s fleet at an impressive 287.9ft (85m) in length. This abundance of space onboard has allowed her designers to create a veritable floating palace with magnificent lounges, outdoor dining areas and spacious guest suites fit for even the most demanding of guests.
Thanks to her statuesque size, O’Ptasia has a wealth of amenities and stunning living spaces certain to ensure a truly remarkable charter experience. On the foredeck is a dedicated touch-and-go helipad which makes shore excursions or quick visits a breeze, while her impressive beach club and generous swim platform was actually inspired by direct feedback from previous charter guests. Here you’ll find a bar, hammam, massage room, sauna and plenty of room for simply lounging in the sun. Every element of her design has been carefully calibrated to maximize guest comfort levels and enjoyment, such as the careful positioning of air conditioning units tucked away inside columns and extra noise insulation which ensures guest spaces remain quiet and peaceful even when underway.
O’Ptasia’s classic exterior lines and her chic interior spaces have been curated by Italian designer Giorgio Vafiadis of Studio Vafiadis who has taken inspiration from her Greek heritage. Her deck spaces offer a light-toned Mediterranean aesthetic with ample space for dining, lounging and socializing al fresco. One key highlight here is the gorgeous pool on the bridge deck with extensive views out over your surroundings which makes the ideal spot for a moment of quiet contemplation or quality family time with the kids.
As you move into her interior spaces, there is a striking change to a darker, richer aesthetic and a sense of sheer opulence thanks to the use of exquisite natural materials like onyx, ebony and fine marbles. O’Ptasia’s grand main saloon is located on the main deck which is the ideal spot for formal dining thanks to the eye-catching ebony table and magnificent views. There is also another lounge space on her upper deck which is ideal for movie nights and a dedicated gym so guests can keep up their regular fitness routines while onboard.
Onboard O’Ptasia there are a total of eleven gorgeous guest suites that can accommodate up to 22 charter guests. In keeping with her Greek origins, the bathrooms all feature either Pentelikon marble, as used in Athens’ ancient Parthenon, or a special green marble sourced from the island of Tinos in the Aegean. She also boasts a captivating full-beam master suite equipped with a private dressing room and large bathroom. Golden Yachts has thoughtfully added a twin cabin right next to the master suite, making life easier for guests who want to be close to children or their key staff members while on charter. Her design includes capacity for up to 28 crew which means that guests can enjoy a personal level of attention with every detail taken care of during their stay onboard.
O’Ptasia is available to charter through Y.CO from US$168,000 (€800,000) per week plus expenses.
