Delivered in 2016, the 41.4m (135.9ft) motor yacht RUYA is a gleaming gem on the charter market. Guests love her award-winning, thoroughly original and truly outstanding Australian outback-inspired interior by famed designer Sam Sorgiovanni.
Built to celebrate al fresco living, she has a huge 93sqm (1,001sqft) sun deck complete with bar, BBQ, open-air dining shaded by the hardtop, a glass-fronted 10-person jacuzzi for soaking in the sun and gym equipment for morning workouts. Glass screens keep you draft-free without spoiling the views.
The hydraulic swim platform gives you step-free access to the water and the beach club where you can relax and snack between swims. She has an armada of watertoys to keep everyone's adrenaline levels up and the yacht is also an RYA-approved training centre so you can use the toys without a licence.
Inside, her interior makes use of indigenous material like bamboo and Australian silky oak to create a relaxed, comforting environment. Floor-to-ceiling glass in the main lounge and formal dining room create a remarkable sense of openness and that flows into the main deck aft lounge area. There's shaded open-air dining and a sun lounge on the upper deck aft and inside is a home cinema with an 80in screen and surround sound for movie nights.
She welcomes 10 guests in five finely appointed suites. There is a full-beam master suite forward on the main deck, wonderfully illuminated by large picture windows, with a private office and his-and-hers bathroom with bath and shower area. Two double cabins and two twin cabins on the lower deck complete her accommodation.
This is a yacht that intimately connects her guests to their environment, from the sun deck to the beach club, served by a crew that always gets brilliant feedback. For fans of the great outdoors, look no further than RUYA.
