The 88-metre luxury catamaran, “Asean Lady” has been listed at an asking price of €30 million, reduced from its original price of €30.5 million by its owner, Vincent Tan, a Malaysian Chinese business tycoon. The design of the yacht was inspired by a bamboo outrigger canoe used in the South Pacific region. It was first built in 2004, and a year later it was awarded the “Most Innovative Motor Yacht” by Showboats International.
The yacht was designed by Pride Mega Yachts and its asymmetrical shape has solved many issues typical of luxury yachts such as noise, space, and stability. A standout amenity of the yacht is its helideck, located aft, allowing guests to make a statement with their entry or exit.
The yacht also has storage for a maximum of four jet skis at the bow, plenty go around for some fun in the water. Once inside, guests are greeted with an entrance hall before seeing the rest of the yacht proper. The grand staircase leads you to the rest of the interior.
The Asean Lady has plenty of indoor spaces such as the lounge, bar, and main formal dining area where you can host up to 14 people for dinner. There is even a KTV lounge for you to sing your heart out after a filling dinner.
Accomodation is plentiful aboard the Asean Lady as it has space for 18 guests across eight staterooms. Highlights include a lavish master cabin. Measuring 160 square metres, it comes with a private balcony and ensuite office.
Another unique yacht is Silent Yacht’s Silent 60 — an electric yacht running on renewable solar energy with a kite wing that generates power for the yacht. The ship has 42 solar panels and a battery capacity of 286 kWh, allowing for zero emissions.
