139’5″/42.50m M/Y Libra Y for charter with IYC
IYC is delighted to announce the addition of the 139’5″/42.50m vintage beauty, M/Y Libra Y, to the Greek charter fleet. Launched in 1977 by Picchiotti, this design icon feels as fresh and modern today as she did back on her launch, with both her interior and exterior the work of the legendary Jon Bannenberg. A 2016 refit has brought her right up to date, leaving her in outstanding condition without compromising her original design. Smooth lines, original modernist furniture and a curated onboard art collection create an interior space that rivals the views from her elegant decks. With so much already to offer, Libra Y is also a pet friendly vessel, so charter guests are able to bring along their four legged friend on a Greek island hopping adventure.
Libra Y’s main living area connects with the main deck, alternately acting as a large, relaxed living space and as an indoor dining room. A second living space / office is found on the upper deck, where original modernist furniture is used to celebrate this yacht’s aesthetic. Bannenberg’s timeless interior design extends from the main living spaces into the cabins, where rich wood tones, subtle detailing and clean open spaces showcase his talents as a yacht designer. 10 guests can be accommodated in five cabins, which consist of a grandiose master, two double cabins, a twin cabin and a bunk bed cabin.
With the owner a keen art collector, charter guests can admire the yacht’s collection of sea themed black and white photographs, with works by artists such as Nan Goldin, Roe Ethridge, Matthew Barney, Roni Horn, Nobuyoshi Araki, Piotr Uklanski, Louise Lawler, Tacita Dean and Christopher William. A floating private art gallery!
Stepping outside, the expansive deck spaces provide guests with multiple areas to socialise or find solitude. Gourmet al fresco meals can be enjoyed around the full length dining table, and cocktails can be sipped from comfortable lounge seating. Sun lovers are well catered for, with countless sun loungers and custom-built sun pads, in addition to the private sunbathing spot found on the hanging balcony at the front of the bridge. On the main and upper decks guests can enjoy a massage, yoga classes, or simply take in the stunning view over the Greek waters. When needing to cool off, guests can dive straight into crystal seas, take a tender to a private beach, or take advantage of Libra Y’s many water toys, which include kayaks, waterskis, an SUP, several towables and snorkelling equipment. With a PADI certified crew member on board, divers can also head below the waves to explore Greece’s superb dive sites, with an endless choice of wrecks, sunken cites and marine reserves to explore.
Zero speed stabilisers have been installed to ensure comfort at anchor, and she cruises Greek waters at a smooth 15 knots. A passionate crew of seven are on hand to make every experience memorable.
