Stepping on board at the Mediterranean Yacht Show 2017, the team at YachtCharterFleet discovered preciesly why ‘Barents Sea’ has come to be thought of as a modern masterpiece.
Built by Mondo Marine and boasting an interior designed by the inspired Luca Dini, the Italian dame turned many a discerning head during her time in Greece this summer.
Unmistakeable in the Nafplio harbour, superyacht Barents Sea dazzled showgoers thanks to her electric blue hull.
Styled by Studio Vafiadis, the sharp lines which create a sporty profile playfully hint towards the contemporary feel of the communal and guest spaces found throughout the motor yacht.
After taking some time to appreciate her from afar, the team at YachtCharterFleet were welcomed aboard to get up close and personal.
The calming effects of luxury yacht Barents Sea can be felt immediately after making it past the glass sliding doors which lead into the interior from the main deck.
Muting the loud colours she once sported when she was superyacht PANTHER, her new owner ensured that that she took on a more tranquil aesthetic.
Indeed, finished in the finest Italian fabrics, the main salon is exceptionally bright and airy, with large surrounding windows providing plenty of natural light to spill over the furnishings on offer.
Highly flexible, the sofas and seating can be arranged to create a range of inviting environments, from a relaxed daytime retreat to a more intimately arranged space for enjoying a movie in.
The crowning feature of the main salon, however, is the marble detailing which adorns the wall behind the formal dining area.
Broken up by a television screen in the centre, the marble fixture is a stunning piece of decor which helps to set a calming mood in the communal space.
Indeed, as much a work of art as a finishing touch, the subtle lines and shifting shades of purple ultimately help to conjure up a tranquil ambience.
What’s more, the positioning of the screen allows guests to comfortably enjoy some light entertainment with their after-dinner coffee.
Enlivening everyone who steps through, the interior of superyacht Barents Sea is the perfect place to return to following a day on the water
Optimising the sense of space felt in the main salon, there is very little in the way of ornamentation, allowing everyone to enjoy the surroundings without disruption.
Whilst the main salon is sure to satisfy the social urges of those on board, the sky lounge a deck above is just as impressive.
With a large sofa to the portside, and a collection of large chairs to the starboard side, there is more than enough room for everyone to get comfortable in the relaxed surroundings.
Thanks to a discreetly placed projector screen on the starboard side, it’s easy to kick back with a movie should guests desire this form of entertainment.
Complete with a quietly illuminated bar, charter guests are also able to sip on conveniently served refreshments in the minimalist environment.
Enjoying the same high quality finish as the main salon, the sky lounge of Barents Sea is lined with a range of attractive Italian woods.
Back on the main deck, the master cabin is sure to satisfy the principal charter guest with its range of comfortable furnishings and magnificent en suite facilities.
Comprised of neutral tones and soft textures, the sleeping area also benefits from large wraparound windows which allow the passage of natural light throughout the day.
Thanks to some additional sofa seating integrated along the starboard side, the guests making use of this cabin will be able to use the area for some unwinding as well as sleeping.
Lit up by strategically positioned LEDs, the shower and wash area bask in a colourful glow, keeping things just as calm here as elsewhere.
Heading down the broad staircase to the lower deck, guests will find the remaining five guest cabins.
Made up of a VIP suite towards the fore, two twins amidships, and two doubles towards the aft, each area can be easily accessed from the spacious central corridor.
Each boasting an ensuite bathroom and a relaxed styling which is consistent with the rest of the motor yacht, guests can be assured of the utmost comfort and style no matter where they find themselves resting.
What’s more, there are television screens available in each cabin to keep everyone entertained once they’ve returned to their bed at the end of the day.
Capable of sleeping up to 12 guests in supreme comfort, superyacht Barents Sea promises to deliver the ultimate charter experience for friends and families
The exterior section of the main deck has been thoughtfully appointed to form the central alfresco dining area.
Allowing guests to look across the ocean without interruption, the positioning of the table also benefits from partial shading to enhance the overall comfort of eating outside.
With a full-size bar only short distance away, it’s also possible to enjoy hours of ocean gazing with the steady flow of refreshments to keep everyone cool.
Descending down the port and starboard sides, twin staircases provide access to the swim platform from which to enter the water and get out to enjoy the toys.
Sure to attract charter guests throughout the day, the sundeck of superyacht Barents Sea is equipped with all of the necessary features for kicking back in the heat of her cruising grounds.
The generously sized Jacuzzi, for example, is the perfect place for the entire party to gather and enjoy the scenery from, with the nearby bar serving up drinks in seconds.
In a seamless connection with the sky lounge, it’s also easy to go from sunbathing on the sunpads to cooling down with a movie.
Entirely appropriate for parties, the large deck areas allow for numerous revellers to celebrate in style without compromising on space.
Having attended one such party on board Barents Sea, the team at YachtCharterFleet can attest to the superior level of service delivered by the experienced crew.
It should also be pointed out that the vibrant lighting attached to the bar makes the sundeck just as attractive by night. Indeed, with a large television screen on hand to entertain everyone on board, there’s every reason to enjoy a movie night beneath the stars.
Ultimately, Barents Sea is a perfect superyacht for experiencing the world’s finest cruising grounds in style and comfort.
