Sleek, spacious MANU is a brilliant example of an Azimut 68 sportyacht, perfectly designed and decked out for luxury charter from her base on Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands – the group comprising seven magical islands, including Corfu, Kefalonia, Lefkada, Ithaca, Paxos and Kythira.
These idyllic islands are a fascinating destination for charter, blessed with glorious beaches, tranquil azure waters, rustic villages and stunning landscapes. Aboard MANU, you will be in the midst of this sensational cruising ground, with everything taken care of by your attentive crew of two.
At 21m (68ft), luxury charter yacht MANU has room for relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, dining and entertaining. There is ample deck space aft for meals undercover, while her foredeck can easily fit several sun lounges for soaking up the sunshine as you cruise the marvelous Ionian Islands.
Flowing seamlessly from the aft deck, MANU boasts a cosy, sophisticated saloon with leather seating, large flatscreen TV and home cinema. The separate dining area is adjacent to the galley where your Chef, Fofo is superbly qualified to create meals to please all palates. LED lighting, vibrant décor and large windows enhance the fresh, modern ambience.
From the saloon, a teak staircase leads to the sundeck, another great spot for breakfast, cocktails at sunset or curling up with a good book in the sun or under the awning for complete protection.
Below decks, MANU'S four spacious cabins for up to eight guests comprise one Master, one VIP and two twin cabins, (one of which has bunk beds), decorated in vivid hues and with every convenience at your fingertips – storage, AV, AC, wi-fi and windows for tempting seaviews.
From MANU'S swim platform, guests can access the sea and enjoy a range of water sports. In the boat's garage, there is a brand new Oceanis 3.4m tender which provides a dry, stable ride to shore, whether that's for dinner at a taverna, to explore a deserted bay or sample local hospitality at any one of the pleasant villages.
If you are keen or willing to learn, you can try the two-person Seadoo Spark or waterski, wakeboard, kneeboard or enjoy a gentle ride in an inflatable – the choice is yours.
Captain Nikos and Chef Fofo are a great team having worked together for many years. They are supremely friendly, fluent in English and proud of their local knowledge of this magnificent region.
