AKIKO 34m | 111.6ft | Alloy Yachts NZ

EXPERIENCE AKIKO

AKIKO’s true gift is time away from the rush of the world to enjoy a journey of discovery with friends and family.

With slick, strong exterior lines this beautiful superyacht is made to explore. AKIKO offers a sumptuous adventure platform to the Australian experiential charter market. Built by Alloy Yachts, AKIKO was first launched in 2007 and went on to pick up five major honours at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.

Previously named VvS1 (after a grade of diamonds), she was proudly introduced to the Australian charter market following an extensive refit in New Zealand in 2016-2017. Spacious living areas lead to full height windows dare the passing views to vie for your attention with the impeccably decorated interior. AKIKO is versatile enough to enter small bays, anchor behind coral atolls or for game fishing over submarine reefs.

The warm colours of Australia accent an interior which is at once strikingly-modern, and invitingly-luxurious. A generous owner’s suite stretches full beam across the main deck, and 4 additional guest cabins complete the accommodation, with room for up to 10 live-aboard guests housed in vibrant, individual spaces.

AKIKO delivers an opportunity to revel in spending time with the ones you love most: adventures in the Kimberley and the Wild Wild Coast of Western Australia.
