The builders of sailing yacht RHEA knew a good thing when they saw it. After the launch of yacht Chronos, Ark Yachts was stunned to learn their ketch rigged sailboat was nominated for a 2014 World Superyacht Award. That prestigious honor convinced the Turkish builder to duplicate the success of that yacht. Hence, the nearly identical Ark Yachts sail yacht RHEA has entered the industry, and should be a fixture in the St Martin yacht charter winter marketplace for many years to come.
With a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) sailing yacht RHEA, Ark Yachts’ ambitious tailor-made yacht, is a 2-masted ketch-rigged steel sailboat, with a total sail area of 2050 square meters. Like her sistership Chronos, she is classified under the CCV-Code (Commercial Cruising Vessels) for safety and expanded passenger capacity. Whereas most charter vessels can accommodate no more than 12 guests, this yacht features 13 ensuite guest cabins for 26 passengers.
Many builders turn to outside designers to handle the exterior and the interior. Not Ark Yachts. On the acknowledged success of Chronos, their first 54 meter sailing yacht, the builder’s in-house team handled every aspect of crating this ketch. All of the naval architecture, engineering; class compliance, construction, drawings, steel construction of the hull and superstructure, and exterior-interior joinery was completed by Ark.
Unique amenities include an ondeck dining area for 30 passengers, reading room and board library, and a sunbathing area with cushions, deckchairs, and benches.
