XIPHIAS - Motor Yachts


Motor Yacht XIPHIAS Charter brief:
XIPHIAS (33.2m / 109’), previously PJ, is a luxury motor yacht built by Chantier Naval de l’Esterel shipyard and launched in 1974. Fully refitted in 2009, she was redecorated in a very modern, minimalistic style by well known interior designer Gabhan O’Keefe. XIPHIAS was originally designed by Bannenberg & Rowell as a patrol boat and as such is a unique classic motor yacht available for luxury crewed and private yacht charter holidays in the East Mediterranean. The yacht can accommodate up to eight guests within her 4 well-appointed cabins, providing them with their own private space to relax in comfort during the yacht charter vacation. Her super yacht crew of up to six including the captain are usually offering bespoke luxury crewed yacht charter itineraries out of Athens and within the Saronic Gulf or in the Cyclades Archipelago. One way charters towards Aegean Sea or Turkey, including Antalya and Istanbul, or towards Ionian Sea, Malta and Cyprus is acceptable

Tip:    XIPHIAS was originally a patrol boat and with 2009 refit has become a genuine, good value luxury motor yacht worth considering in many ways, let alone about all the history that she has behind her.


About Luxury Motor Yacht XIPHIAS:
XIPHIAS is a luxury charter yacht you will greatly enjoy during your summer vacation in the East Mediterranean.  Based in a unique area near the most popular historic capital of Greece, Athens, her crew can take you around most of the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs as well as throughout Cyclades, Ionian or Greek and Turkish Aegean sea.

XIPHIAS’s new, in 2009 upgraded interior by Gabhan O’Keefe combines the classical elegance of her exterior very well with newly designed minimalist and modern areas on and below deck. The colour scheme is predominantly in light colours, with silver and light hues providing a relaxing and spacious ambience. The layout of the salon is very social with couches lining both sides of the salon. The Dining area is elegant yet casual with a comfortable fixed semi circular settee surrounding the table. Her upper salon can be used as a second reception area, for watching TV, to enjoy the spectacular views or it can be converted to a 2nd double cabin if needed. This area has its own walk in closet and en-suite facilities. The yacht also has stabilizers which enhance comfort during the cruise and new equipment (2009) for water sports such as a new tender, tubes, banana and water skis.  Her crew of up to six will cater to all of your needs. This classic motor yacht also has great deck space including an al-fresco dining area on the aft deck along with a huge fixed cushioned couch spread across the aft of the vessel. The upper deck has huge open spaces perfect for soaking up the East Mediterranean Sun.
