What makes Ambrosia stand out?

Ambrosia is one of the “big” Benettis from her era with clear design pedigree from award-winning designers Zuretti, Natucci and Oeino. With a gross tonnage of 1,640GT she matches the volume of much longer yachts. The large volume is reflected in her palatial interior on four decks and luxurious accommodation for her owner and guests. Technically far advanced with diesel-electric propulsion with 360-degree turning Azipods for ease of manoeuvring. She has served her current - and first - owner well entertaining heads of state, captains of industry and family and friends. Her 7000 NM range allows her to travel almost anywhere on the planet.

How many can Ambrosia accommodate?

Her sumptuous accommodation carries the owner and 12 guests in 6 ensuite cabins plus max 20 crew. The owner's suite is spacious with her full beam layout. It provides her owner with all the luxury and comfort including a private office. Additional VIP and guest accommodation will pamper the Owner’s guests and make a stay on board unforgettable.

What's your favourite onboard feature and why?

The mini cinema comes to mind where one relaxes whilst watching Cousteau’s adventures. The circular dining room on the first deck impresses guests with its unique design with references to outer space and the moon. The touch and go helicopter deck and the two custom-built tender limos make your arrival and departure something else.

What type of owner would Ambrosia suit? 

Any VIP who values high-level entertainment for his guests in formal or private settings. The level of onboard luxury and service levels are impressive. The yacht has the pedigree to be able to service her new owners for a long time to come. The yacht would also be extremely suitable for high-end charters.

What recent work or refit has the boat had?

Ambrosia has been well maintained by her current owner and she complies with all Class and MCA Regulations. A new owner would benefit from a refit relevant to a yacht celebrating her 15th birthday soon in 2021.

Is Ambrosia suitable for charter and, if so, why?

Ambrosia is very suitable with her large volume, ability to carry a large crew, her sumptuous accommodation for 14 guests, her variety of interior and exterior entertainment areas. Ambrosia would be a very welcome addition to the large yacht charter segment.

Does the yacht have an interesting history or made any trips of note?
