by Malcolm MacLean
Built in aluminium by the Australian superyacht yard NQEA to Lloyds class, she was designed by Glanvilles Naval Architects and launched in 2004 with a refit in 2013. Her interior, designed by FMCA with Liz Forsyth, offers voluminous spaces with extremely flexible accommodation for as many as 19 guests.
The master suite is full beam on the main deck while below there are four generous double cabins with queen size berths, a V cabin with four king size berths, a double to port and a twin on the starboard side. All cabins come with flat screen televisions and en suite bathroom facilities.
A vast main saloon is decorated in neutral colours with off-white carpeting and rugs, and has banquette seating facing a large flat screen television set mounted on the aft bulkhead. There is also a bar with five bar stools and an adjacent formal dining area. Sliding stainless steel and glass doors lead out to a large aft deck with al fresco entertaining and dining at a circular table surrounded by 10 matching chairs.
A notable feature is her Lloyds certified helicopter pad and she has a 2,000 litre refuelling tank while twin 2,735hp MTU engines give her a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 10.5 knots. Ophelia is also fitted with Naiad zero speed stabilisers.
