Previously known as Jonikal, the yacht once belonged to Egyptian businessman and former Harrods owner, Mohamed Al-Fayed, and became renowned for the iconic shot of Diana alone with her thoughts at the end of the diving board taken in Portofino, Italy just 6 days before her untimely death on 31 August 1997.
BASH’S refit began when the yacht was towed to the shipyard from Rijeka in 2021 and has been managed by the marine engineering and management company Capax, who were also responsible for the installation of the motor yacht’s new bridge system.
The project included refurbishments across nearly every part of the yacht with new wiring, plumbing and the installation of entirely new penetrations of a bulkheads and bridge deck. The team also fitted new air conditioning and an integrated AV/IT onboard system.
The superyacht now boasts a brand new interior layout and beautiful decor designed by Slovenian designers Bobic Yacht Interiors, who created a luxurious and elegant feel onboard.
Getting to this point took a lot of hard work and required a lot of skill, but it was worth the effort. Our warmest thanks go to all those who contributed to the refit of the motor yacht BASH
Onboard highlights include her beauty salon and massage area, sweeping sundeck and spacious main salon, perfect for social gatherings entertaining and relaxing onboard. Not only this, the yacht is also home to multiple alfresco dining areas, well-equipped gym set-up and a jacuzzi, providing guests with a true taste of the superyacht lifestyle.
The yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests across six sophisticated staterooms, including a main deck master suite with a walk-in wardrobe, a private lounge and office.
The Mediterranean has long been one of the most popular summer destinations for yacht charters, and for good reason.
Whether you’re celebrity spotting in the South of France or enjoying the outstanding cruising areas in Greece, a Mediterranean yacht charter provides endless possibilities to explore sun-kissed beaches and soak up the superyacht lifestyle.
