Traditional, custom built motor sailor Almyra presents the perfect opportunity for an owner looking to enjoy all that yachting has to offer whatever the weather. Combining the thrill of sailing with the convenience of motor yachting, this 1997 custom-built gulet cuts a striking profile on water. Having undergone a refit in 2020, Almyra offers keen yachtsmen the best of both worlds.
Offered for sale by IYC by IYC, Almyra combines a traditional Aegean wooden hull with the latest in contemporary sailing equipment and 400m2 sail area. Her distinctive exterior includes an al fresco on-deck cinema for starlit film nights, an eye-catching classic design and vast open deck space. Anglers will particularly enjoy the ability to tuck tight into beaches and shoreline to catch fresh fish straight from the sea.
Almyra offers ample interior volume for 10/12 guests to enjoy a stress-free life on the water. A luxurious master suite is a key interior feature with its aesthetically arresting teak deck flooring. Four well-sized guests suites complement the interior arrangement, each with en suite facilities. Three dining opportunities are provided: one in the roomy salon finished in rosewood and white leather with large windows for natural sunlight, an al fresco option on the aft deck for a romantic sunset backdrop and a fully equipped bar and table in the lower deck for refreshing cocktails and a more formal ambience.
Almyra’s blue pine wooden hull and white rosewood superstructure received new exterior paint work during the 2020 refit. The entertainment system installed, with independent satellite connection, enables guests to connect to the boat’s central AV system with ease. A bow thruster provides easy manoeuvring, even in small bays.
On windy days, Almyra’s sails can be unfurled giving owners the chance to take the helm and enjoy the slower pace of life while sailing across warm waters. On calmer days, the motor engine enables uninterrupted, air-conditioned cruising, not to mention the convenience of turning up the speed to an easy 10 knots whenever required and make the most of the onboard amenities.
When the anchor drops, the collection of water toys come out to play. Beautifully maintained, Almyra is the ideal boat for families with young children who will revel in the yacht’s carefree ambience. Cruise overnight and wake to the excitement of a new horizon each day. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast al fresco before spending a full day sailing or fishing. Kick back and relax with a cosy on-deck cinema evening under the night sky. However you choose to pass the time, few yachts provide as calm and laidback onboard experience.
Almyra is in mint condition and ready for her new owner.
