24.4m (80’1″) M/V SAMARA now for sale with IYC

IYC has welcomed 24.2m Samara – a beautiful explorer style catamaran, that comes complete with its own helicopter – to the IYC sales fleet, jointly listed by Mark Elliott, IYC Sales and Charter Consultant, with Ben Doggett of Aquasitions. Launched in 2015 by New Zealand yard Pachoud Yachts, naval architecture is by Scott Jutson with an interior by Sylvia Bolton. Powered by twin 800hp MAN R6-800 engines, Samara cruises at 12 knots, with a maximum speed of 22 knots.

Samara is named for the winged seed of the sycamore tree and, like her namesake, latitude and altitudes were the key philosophies behind her construction. Built for owners who were looking to adventure around the world, Samara is a true explorer style yacht that perfectly blends the practical requirements for global cruising with luxurious design. An array of innovative features allows autonomous operation, allowing her owners to cruise with or without crew, making her perfect for those looking for added privacy or the satisfaction of piloting their own vessel. Her design draws on the influences of the elements through a variety of forms, colours, textures and materials.

Samara’s owners built her with the intention of living on board long term, and she was designed to suit this brief and boasts extensive storage, a good variety of living spaces, generous volumes and stable performance. Every area on board features three types of storage – displayed, visible and concealed ­– to maximise on board spaces. The large open plan main saloon serves as the heart of the yacht and cleverly blends a design suited for entertaining with the required practicalities of living on board long term. Throughout the yacht a light, modern and bright interior only maximizes the effects of the large volumes. A striking feature in the main salon is a fireplace which, as well as being practical and filling spaces with warmth, acts as a divider between the main salon and the sunken den that is perfect for cosy movie sessions or curling up with a book.

A spacious galley is also at the center of the yacht and has been set up for interactive cooking and entertaining. The main living area leads directly out to a sheltered dining space aft, with barbeque, perfect for al fresco dining and gatherings. Remote controlled electric blinds allow this space to be enclosed and become a part of the main salon in adverse weather conditions.

Samara boasts three well-appointed staterooms, accommodating eight guests, with two crew cabins. The huge master stateroom, which includes a walk in wardrobe takes full advantage of the 9.5m beam and uses split level flooring to create distinct spaces within. A special window, that can quickly turn opaque to ensure privacy, allows views from the master suite all the way down the length of the yacht. Two queen guest cabins are located on the lower deck and also boast large, light filled spaces.

On the foredeck, with easy access from the master suite, a saltwater tub brings the ocean to the yacht, allowing for relaxation in all climates, with nearby casual seating for enjoying views across the water. When not in use as a helipad the upper deck converts to lounging space with sunpads, for relaxing in the warm weather.

The ability to carry a helicopter is a huge asset for a yacht of this size, allowing easy access to the yacht night and day, and Samara’s asking price includes a Robinson R44 helicopter. Impressive technology effortlessly transforms Samara’s helipad into operational mode, sliding the helipad aft, the instrument arch forward and folding the rails down, providing a large touch down area suited to several models, and suitable for night and day landings alike.

Easy water access for the yachts’ numerous toys and tenders includes a remote controlled hydraulic submersible platform allowing the quick launch and retrieval of Samara’s custom 4.1m tender, which is hardy enough to transport Samara’s personal motorbikes and push bikes for on-land exploration. Other equipment includes 5m sailing kayaks and a full diving set up.

Careful design, advanced technologies and beautiful styling make Samara a must see for anyone considering a yacht with the credentials to see the world but without any compromise on luxury living.

Samara Asking Price: $7,000,000 includes Robinson R44 Helicopter
