Explore Antarctica aboard motor yacht Asteria
Worth Avenue Yachts is offering the 48.8m (160’) motor yacht Asteria for charter in South America and the Antarctic peninsula this winter.
A former ocean-going tug, she was converted into a superyacht in 2003 and has all the latest amenities and technologies.
A large saloon has comfortable seating and a 72-inch 3D television screen with surround sound plus a formal dining area for 12. Accommodation is for 12 guests including a master suite on the upper deck with an adjoining dressing room, private study. On the main deck, two of the four double staterooms with queen size beds can be converted into twins, and there is a further twin cabin.
A single 1,850hp Caterpillar gives Asteria an enormous range of 6,000 nautical miles and she is fitted with Quantum zero-speed stabilisers. Water toys include four tenders, kayaks, water skis, fishing tackle, towables and a dive compressor.
Weekly charter rates on Asteria start from $180,000 in high season and $165,000 in low season, plus expenses.
