What is the Perfect Yacht for the Bahamas?

Innumerable yachts can be seen in the physical and digital world, all roaming around in timeless designs. But, very few match and resemble the dignity and elegance of ACE Yacht.

Details such as oval balconies, architecturally distinct lines, and state-of-the-art interior make her a yachting masterpiece, with each component engineered with uncompromising attention to detail and haughtily put together.

Owner of ACE yacht

Yuriy Kosiuk, a well-known Ukrainian billionaire and chief executive and chairman of the country’s biggest agricultural company, Mironivsky Hliboproduct (MHP), owns the ACE yacht.

His excellence in maintaining his fortune and the title of a billionaire was witnessed in keeping his company not just out of the 2008 worst financial crisis but constantly bringing in vast profit proportions.

Manufacturers and Designers of ACE Yacht

The Ace yacht was manufactured by the German shipbuilding company Lurssen.

Lürssen built the Ace yacht, a German shipyard headquartered in Bremen and manufacturing units in Lemwerder, Berne, and Bremen-Fähr-Lobbendorf. Known by the trading name of Lürssen Yachts, Lurssen designs and builds yachts, naval ships, and vessels.

Andrew Winch Design (AWD) is a company based in Barnes, Landon, responsible for designing the exterior and interior of Ace yacht. Andrew Winch owns it, a designer globally praised for his designing instincts and made part of one of the two design teams for the business jet interior development of the Boeing 787.

He has a tremendous portfolio that includes major hits such as Dubai, Al Mirqab, Madame Gu, and, of course, the Ace Yacht.

Interior of the ACE Yacht

The Ace, manufactured in 2012, was refitted in 2018 for a not-so-far yachting event organized in Barcelona.

It is a well-known fact that she was custom built and organized for one experienced owner who has now put her for sale, a fact that only one person owns it and has never been sold or happened to acquire a joint owner so far.

The interior, proudly shaped by Winch Design, is no short of acute oval boundaries, extensive side arches, and the rest of the details passionately put in table forms by the classic and timeless interior.

Going against the customary interior layouts, the design team spent exquisite dedication on making the onboard family set-up look exhilarating and comfortable. Another excellent design concept put into practice is the continuous transition from the interior to the exterior; the outlook seems distinctly sharp to appeal to the aesthetic side of the viewer.

Ace can entertain a total of ten passengers in her six luxurious staterooms, and she can also host up to 30 crew members on board for a relaxing vacation. Even though this is her recent accommodation arrangement, architects believe a prospective buyer might convert the massage room into a sixth berth, bringing the total number of guests to 12.

Her upper deck features a helipad, a cinema, a gym, and guest suites with better accessibility between them all. The main suite looks stern and has incredible uninterrupted views, as well as a tiny aft deck that offers the owner a wind-sheltered location.

Exclusive staircases flow straight from the owner’s deck to the swimming deck on the port and starboard sides, which precludes the requirement for the owner to pass through any deck interiors.

The upper deck’s front portion of the dining saloon is a cosy sitting room and library with a fireplace, piano, and games table. A unique Russian tea room and nightclub are also located on this deck.

Inspired by Roman villas, the ultimate spa area is located on the lower deck and contains:

  • a hammam,
  • spa pool,
  • Russian banya (a type of sauna),
  • icy plunge pool and cold water bucket shower with a lounge adjoining to an expansive fold-down sea terrace.

Ace sits closer to the bottom deck and has wide tender garage doors for quick access to the water. She also includes an additional aperture in her hull that can be used as a delicate docking area or a beach-style bathing platform.

Ace is also recognized for travelling on the 67.15-meter Garcon support vessel, which was recently sold. Authority received tender, crew, provisioning, and helicopter assistance from the Damen-built support vessel, the Dutch shipyard’s first big support vessel.

Accommodation Facility of Ace Yacht

ACE will have a spacious personalized owners’ deck and suite and large enough to accommodate at least 12 guests. To accomplish this, she will have more than six staterooms, and the superyacht will easily accommodate a large number of guests in style and comfort at this length. The boat will also feature superb interior communal entertaining spaces and expansive outside decks, making her ideal for both luxury charter and private yachting.

The Sail of the Ace on the Bahamas

The Bahamas is a renowned yachting, sailing, and fishing destination. It’s not only a part of the lovely people of this remarkable archipelago’s legacy, but it’s also a significant magnet for sailing enthusiasts from all over the world, including Florida.

In April, the Bahamas Family Island Regatta commemorates craft sloop racing in George Town, the Exumas, with onshore activities like basketball, a skipper’s party, and a Junkanoo parade.

Then there’s the carnival atmosphere that precedes the Long Island Regatta, which features a slew of sailing sloops competing for significant awards every May.

As you might anticipate, the Bahamas are one of the most preferred spots for superyacht charter clientele.

These islands are recognized worldwide for their beautiful pristine beaches and diverse marine life, making them one of the best places on the planet to snorkel and scuba dive.

They’ve also featured as the backdrop for some of James Bond’s most iconic flicks, including Thunderball, which was inspired by the magnificent Thunderball Grotto diving site.
