ASOLARE, a 47m supersail yacht for charter!

Published by Editorial Team on 11th September 2014

SY ASOLARE, formerly Scheherazade, is a beautiful and powerful XXI century luxury sailing yacht designed by Bruce King as his largest yacht at the time. She announced herself in big fashion when she was launched by Hodgdon yachts back in 2003. One of the reasons she created a buzz at her launch was the fact she was the largest cold-moulded sailing yacht in the world at her launch. Built out of wood, from the perfectly preserved Douglas fir trees, all submerged in a swamp in Washington State some 600 years ago, she is almost as long as Boeing 757, and with an almost unbelievably modern interior designed by Andrew Winch, and crafted from fiddle back sycamore and walnut woods, the life below deck is as spectacular as on any super yacht of her size. The area features harlequin book-matched panels and more than 500 relief carved seashells in walnut with burled walnut furniture tops. Further inside, ASOLARE’s full beam master cabin is in fact a beautiful multi-room apartment which occupies the entire aft section of  this luxury charter yacht. The suite is divided in three areas that include an office and a library with his and hers marble-appointed bathrooms with heated towel bars on top.  At almost 30’ width, the master suite has a king-size bed as well as a sofa in a sitting area. From here, a special stairway leads directly to the head charterer’s private aft cockpit seating and a dayhead nearby.   

With desalinators on board producing up to 3,000 gallons of fresh water a day, and additional guest accommodation with two en suite staterooms offering two twin beds each with an additional Pullman berth in the port guest cabin, all forward from the main dining salon, you can rest assured that your family members or friends will have a great level of comfort on board too. To fully appreciate the existence of this yacht it is also worth knowing that a total of almost 90 highly skilled craftsmen, engineers, carpenters, plumbers and electricians worked full 44 months to build ASOLARE.  As a result. she is an amazing and very unique luxury sailing boat, perfect for family adventure holidays at sea within the Caribbean, Bahamas and New England waters.
