The beautiful 139’5″/42.50m Libra Y, designed by Jon Bannenberg, is a classic gentleman’s yacht that stands out for her stylish interiors with original modernist furniture, her well curated collection of contemporary photography and her huge deck spaces. Built in 1977 by Picchiotti, and refitted to an excellent standard in 2016, her timeless design feels as relevant today as it did on her launch. The yacht can comfortably accommodate 10 guests in five cabins, including a stand out master. Her perfectly balanced exterior lines blend beautifully with her extensive deck spaces, offering her guests a sublime on-board experience, and an ideal set up for exploring the Greek Islands. A passionate crew of seven are on hand to make every experience memorable, and her expansive spaces can be used to full advantage, with yoga, massages and other activities on offer to guests. Also pet friendly, guests have the rare opportunity to bring their four legged friends along for the journey.

COMFORTABLE & STYLISH INTERIOR
Libra Y boasts a spacious main living room that can be transformed into an indoor dining area. Apart from her long sofas, she has stylish bean bags which are the ideal spot for lounging and watching movies. On the upper-deck guests can enjoy a rare combination of a private office and living room with original modernist furniture from the 50’s and 60’s. The vintage Charles Eames arm chair with foot rest and the Noguchi coffee table perfectly complement her teak-wood interiors and create a comfortable and highly distinguished atmosphere. This superb aesthetic continues into all her cabin spaces, which include the master cabin, two double bed cabins, a twin cabin plus a double bunk bed cabin. Her major refit has left Libra Y in perfect condition, bringing her right up to date without compromising her iconic original design.
Being an art collector, the owner has curated a group of contemporary photographs throughout the yacht with the sea as the main inspirational concept. The collection includes works of art by Nan Goldin, Matthew Barney, Nobuyoshi Araki, Piotr Uklanski, Louise Lawler, Roni Horn, Roe Ethridge, Tacita Dean and Christopher Williams, and as guests walk around the vessel, they will feel like they are being treated to their own private gallery viewing.
HUGE DECK SPACES
Libra Y’s most distinctive feature is her huge aft-deck space, which is ideal for entertaining guests or simply enjoying the day and views of the Greek islands in absolute privacy and comfort. Long lunches can be spent around the large al fresco dining table or on the deck’s more informal seating. Guests can stroll the walk-around deck which connects the aft with the foredeck – home to Libra Y’s two tenders. Reached by staircase, the upper deck is another large outdoor area, perfect for sunbathing and entertainment. In front of the bridge, a hanging balcony offers an extra sunbathing spot and the possibility to enjoy relaxing moments with just the sounds of the sea. Guests can also enjoy diving the many exciting sites off the Greek coast with the on board PADI certified crew member or take advantage of the myriad of water toys, which include kayaks, waterskis, a SUP, several towables and snorkelling equipment. For those looking for something a little calmer, the crew can organise yoga classes or a relaxing massage back on Libra Y’s deck.
Libra Y is a pet friendly yacht, which means guests have the opportunity to bring their dog or cat with them, creating even more magical memories on this charter of a lifetime.
This timeless classic yacht is an unbeatable base for a Greek yacht charter.
