Having been built originally in 1987 to serve as a Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency (SFPA) vessel, ‘Enigma XK’ was re-launched late last year following an extensive three-year rebuild project to convert her into a charter yacht of exceptional standards. She immediately captured the yachting industry’s attention with her combination of world-exploration possibilities and wide selection of luxury amenities, even receiving a prestigious nomination in the World Superyacht Awards ‘Best Refitted/Rebuilt’ category.
Due to head out to Antarctica for the upcoming season in the next few months, it has now been announced that ‘Enigma XK’ will be partnering with EYOS Expeditions to take her chartering potential to a whole new level. Two members of staff from the EYOS team along with the yacht’s crew of 21 will be travelling to Antarctica in order to create unique, multi-faceted itineraries in the far reaches of the world. Their extensive knowledge of these regions combined with concern for environmentally sensitive travel and guest safety as well as logistical support such as private aircraft permits will elevate any expedition charter to unlimited levels of luxury adventure.
EYOS Expeditions also work alongside the 47m/154ft ‘Hanse Explorer’ and the 45m/147ft ‘Big Fish’ in a charter market that has seen growing demand for this type of experiential travel. Enigma XK’s Owner is keen to offer charter guests a true superyacht adventure while still providing sleek, stylish interior design and an impressive line-up of facilities. Her striking exterior was re-designed by Phillipe Briand, who was also responsible for the design of explorer yacht EXUMA, while his team at Vitrivius styled her beautifully contemporary interior.
‘Enigma XK’ is one of the top five largest expedition charter yachts, described by her Captain Iltud Orio as a “well-equipped, go-anywhere yacht that will be just as comfortable navigating the Northwest Passage as calling at coastal villages in Papua New Guinea.” EYOS Expeditions will continue to work with the yacht on future expeditions and by the looks of it there are no limits to where she can go.
