JFA Yachts were proud to announce that Axantha II has been selected as finalist at the World Superyacht Awards 2012 in the category “Displacement Motor yacht of below 500GT”. The ceremony will take place in Istanbul, Turkey on 5 May, 2012.
Axantha II is 43 meters long and was delivered in April 2011. Designed by the Naval Architect Vripack, Axantha II is by her shape and her profile thought for faraway destinations. Her aluminium hull and superstructures, give her a moderate displacement which, combined with a reasonably sized engine, allow her to reach a speed of 14.8 knots. A consumption of only 110 litres at 11.5 knots, offers 6795 miles autonomy, ideal for ocean voyage.
The interior layout and passengers flow intend to offer guests the enjoyment of all outdoor aft areas, i.e. the lounges and access to the sea. As for the forward part, it is dedicated for the crew and has direct access ot the forward deck. This large and clear forward deck (or tender deck) enables the storage of two 5.6 meter ribs, perfectly equipped for one day expeditions.
The ship, which amounts to no less than 340 square meters of interior arrangements, can comfortably accommodate eleven guests and eight crew members. The interior layouts are made in stained cherry wood, the floors, in either teak or douka, are accented by a wenge edge. Great care was paid to sound and vibration insulation, the sound levels measured in various zones attest to a extremely quiet boat.
