Touring the 38m/125ft motor yacht TAKARA at the Monaco Yacht Show, the team at YachtCharterFleet discovered the tranquility which runs throughout Sanlorenzo’s latest masterpiece.
Entering a world of calm and color as they stepped into the main salon of TAKARA, the editorial team realized immediately that she is quite unlike anything else belonging to the charter fleet.
Assembled by Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski, the interior of luxury yacht TAKARA is wholly unique in its brilliance.
Taking inspiration from modern Asian design – TAKARA is, after all, the Japanese word for ‘treasure’ – the space produces an incredible energy through a superb use of bamboo, Ziricote and splashes of vibrant colour.
The defining feature of the main salon, however, is the retractable balcony which extends off the starboard side. Accessed via a large glass sliding door, this unusual addition allows guests to form an even greater connection with their surroundings as no end of natural light flows into the interior.
With a large L-shaped sofa situated to port, an entire charter party could well gather here for an evening of entertainment, enjoying each other's company in comfort or watching a movie on the screen which surfaces on the opposite side of the salon.
Unquestionably one of the most calming environments to be found on board any modern motor yacht, this communal space serves as an inviting retreat for guests to make use of throughout their charter vacation.
Balancing restful spaces with exciting features, superyacht TAKARA is perfectly equipped to deliver an unforgettable charter experience
Separated from the main salon by a stone shoji screen and opening up onto another starboard-side balcony, the formal dining area on board TAKARA is both highly stylish and spacious.
More specifically, the subtle use of gold hues and crimson seating creates an attractive atmosphere which finely rivals the alfresco dining options on offer.
Located a deck above, the sky lounge on board superyacht TAKARA is arranged for more intimate gatherings and relaxation. Indeed, with a sit-up bar and cozy sofa running the length of the space, families and friends are able to spend their evenings together in style.
Similar to the main salon, a television screen extends from a cabinet and is connected to a state-of-the-art surround-sound system to enhance the overall viewing experience.
Thanks to reflective surfaces and bright panelling, there is a lively feel to this section of the superyacht, and it’s all too easy to imagine how hours could be lost socializing here throughout the day.
Sure to satisfy the principal charter guest, the master cabin of luxury yacht TAKARA comes with its own private study as well as generously proportioned his and hers en-suite facilities.
Consistent with the styling of the communal spaces, the cabin is surrounded by beautiful woods and has minimal decorative flourishes to keep the space open and airy.
Capable of delivering entertainment in much the same way as the main salon and sky lounge, the master cabin has a television screen which emerges from a cabinet immediately opposite the double bed.
Altogether, this guest area allows occupants to properly unwind while at the same time having access to a dedicated space to conduct any necessary business.
Heading down a staircase, which is every bit as impressive as the spaces it connects, guests will find the remaining four staterooms on offer.
Comprised of a VIP suite, a double cabin, and two twin cabins, the accommodation aboard TAKARA is able to sleep up to 10 guests while away on private yacht charter vacation.
Exuding tranquility, the accommodation on board superyacht TAKARA is nothing short of exceptional
Each complete with en-suite facilities, the cabins located on the lower deck are accented with bronze and gold finishings to produce an ambience that is as inviting as that found in the communal areas.
What's more, iPads enable guests to effortlessly adjust their surroundings and access entertainment at the simple touch of a touchscreen.
Although used sparingly, the artwork found on board TAKARA is effective in producing a unique character certain to seduce charter guests.
Embracing the same spirited range of color embodied in the furnishings and fixtures, the canvases and sculptures found throughout the superyacht drip in bright tones.
This compilation of artwork has ultimately made navigating the various spaces a highly pleasurable experience in and of itself.
Heading out onto the sundeck, charter guests will find a large circular dining table which enjoys plenty of shade thanks to the superstructure which curves overhead.
Serviced by a large bar only a short distance away, guests gathered around this table are able to enjoy their meals while taking in unforgettable views and sunsets in supreme comfort.
When not being used as an alfresco dining area, it’s easy to imagine how the sundeck could serve as an informal social space for those looking to kick back either while underway or at-anchor.
On the deck below, the exterior sections are comprised of a bow Jacuzzi, a forward lounge and a large scale alfresco dining area situated aft.
Rivalling the surroundings of the sundeck, these outdoor areas allow guests to enjoy their surroundings and company in a fashion which best suits their needs.
Access to such a wide range of options is very much a defining quality of TAKARA and reflects the variety of choice found across the interior.
Equipped with all of the most desirable features, the exterior of superyacht TAKARA is a charter guest’s paradise
The main deck is also home to a remarkable exterior section immediately aft of the main salon. A collection of sofas have been positioned around an informal coffee table to create an outdoor lounge of considerable distinction with a chilled out ambience.
It should also be pointed out that when the main salon doors are left open, there is a undisrupted flow between the exterior and interior, forming a connection which merges the communal spaces with considerable effect.
For lovers of water toys and tenders, TAKARA comes with an exciting collection which includes a 16ft RIB, water skis, an inflatable doughnut and an assortment of diving equipment.
