If ever proof was needed that traditionally built craft can still play a part in the luxury charter market in Asia, then you need look no further than Prana by Atzaro.
Designed with the utmost luxury, this stunning superyacht offers guests space and comfort in nine elegant suites, each with their own private ensuite bathrooms.
Owned by the Atzaro Group, whose other ventures include a luxury hotel in Ibiza the yacht’s savvy owners have taken great care over both the yacht’s interior and exterior details. Fully soundproofed, the suites are decorated with sumptuous vintage fabrics and contemporary linens in a sophisticated palette.
The ancient boat-building traditions of the seafaring Bugis tribe inspired her design and this masterpiece, built of ironwood and teak, was constructed using those same time-honoured techniques. The yacht took 21 months to complete, from the laying of the keel, hull and bulkheads to finishing the superstructure, decks and soft furnishing.
Launched late last year, Prana by Atzaro boasts nine spacious ensuite cabins spread across four decks. The yoga terrace, numerous indoor and outdoor living and dining spaces, a dedicated spa, a water sports platform and a cinema under the stars all help make her one of the most frequently requested yachts in the area. Her appeal as a yacht available for charter is enhanced by the immense social areas offering over 900sqm of useable space for her on board guests to enjoy.
Prana by Atzaro is a luxury phinisi (the H is silent and not pronounced). Built on the beach at Bira, just as her cargo carrying ancestors were in the south east corner of Sulawesi close by Bulukumba. This fl at bottomed craft that draws just 3.7 metres is larger than the average. With her two masted ketch rig, she is over 55 metres overall including her elegant bowsprit and overhanging stern. Her massive 11.6 metre wide beam gives her a fat lady look on the water and her big boxy accommodation makes her look top heavy as she sails along. Step on board however, and wander through the well appointed staterooms and you will instantly agree, that this lady is built for comfort.
