Available to charter in the BVI for the upcoming high season is the 164-foot Hanikon.
Like some of the rare boats that travel through our waters, she is a work of incredible ingenuity. Yacht builder Feadship—a name synonymous with the finest calibre of luxury vessels—is responsible for this pedigree of exceptionality, and award-winning HB Design are the skills founding the renovation of the stylish interiors.
Originally designed by Terence Disdale, the vessel was refitted in 2011 by HB Design with the architects seeking to provide an environment that radiates an inviting hospitality, stirring comfort and relaxation. Warmth emits from the oak wood interior, intricate detailing, and conspicuous custom artistry, presenting a truly homely atmosphere.
Operated by a skilled, experienced, and dedicated charter crew—including training instructors for the abundant water toy collection onboard—guests will be spoilt for choice over entertainment. The generous assortment of amusement equipment, includes 2 x 20-foot custom Ribtec tenders, Waverunners, seabobs, water-skis, wakeboards, and snorkelling/diving gear.
Perhaps the most attractive boast of Hanikon is the sheer space afforded in all areas of the indulgent vessel.
The sundeck with shaded dining for up to 22 guests, smooth bar area, multiple sunbathing and seating areas, barbecue, vast Jacuzzi, and convertible sofa space, all whisper of limitless social possibilities. Additionally, a full-beam upper salon with a bar and large doors aft, open fully to the bridge deck.
Whether it’s the crack of dawn enjoying a beautiful sunrise, or the tranquillity of dusk relishing a star-filled night sky, Hanikon’s expansive setting is perfectly calculated for facilitating optimum pleasure.
Inside, six cabins allow for 12 guests with space for 12 crew members. Guest room configuration grants three doubles, two twins, and one convertible twin cabin.
The main deck accommodates the master suite with a study and lounge area, and his and hers en suites including walk-in wardrobes. The massage room adjacent to the master suite converts to twin cabins with en suite – ideal for children. The lower deck houses two doubles also including walk-in wardrobes, and two ample-size twins.
Significant AV/IT upgrades in 2017 comprised of new televisions and airplay audio throughout Hanikon with the addition of Apple TV, iPad controls, and 4G internet connection. Zero speed Koop Nautic fin stabilisers bestow exceptional stability at anchor and underway, contributing to the calm composure of the stellar yacht.
Flexibly mounted interiors and the engine room release astonishingly low levels of noise and vibration throughout the boat supporting the vessel’s promise of true serenity.
In choosing a charter yacht vacation, there is no doubt that Hanikon sincerely grants the idyllic social haven for holidaymakers, who love their space and the best stage to appreciate each other’s company.
