The iconic and ground-breaking Azteca was launched by Feadship in 1983. Jon Bannenberg Design was way ahead of its time. Featuring distinctive windows and an unusual interior layout, she was originally commissioned for Mexican media mogul Emilio Azcarraga.

She boasts an all-aluminum hull construction. As Mr. Azcarraga’s primary consideration was speed, aluminum was chosen because of its lighter properties. In addition, aluminum's intrinsic flexibility in terms of shaping and molding resulted in it eventually being used for the superstructures of all Feadships.

Azteca has been regularly updated and refitted since her delivery in 1983. In 1997 she had a 1.5m stern extension at Feadship’s Royal Van Lent shipyard, with subsequent refit work in Sydney in 2002, Cairns in 2007 and a one-year refit – with significant structural work to the hull, dry-docking work and other system upgrades – at Malta Superyacht Services in 2008.

The interior is as radical with cocoons of butter-soft, over-stuffed kid leather panels offset with hammered metal detailing and kilometers of thick polished Perspex handrails and details. Conventions were turned on their head. Television sets are housed in cantilevered leather-clad boxes rather than recessed into furniture units. This trend-setting superyacht of all time has inspired countless of designers. When onboard it feels like a journey into Bannenberg’s DNA. The glass-roofed solarium on the top deck and the snug, forward-facing observation saloon were years ahead of their time.

Azteca can accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins consisting of a spit level master suite with independent access to the main deck, a main deck VIP suite, a further VIP suite on the lower deck and two twins, all with en-suite facilities.

The bridge deck has an aft section accommodating 2 tenders of up to 8.5 metres each. The forward section features a bar area and outside dining for up to 20 guests with an extendable table. The table can also be lowered to form a shaded sun bed.

Twin 3,000hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 15 knots.

Key features:

• Iconic Styling by Jon Bannenberg

• Feadship Pedigree

• Top Deck Glass-roofed Solarium

• Split Level Master Suite with independent access to the Main Deck

Azteca is an Iconic Feadship and an incredibly important piece of yachting history. Acquiring her represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to restore Azteca her former glory.

Azteca is currently preserved in a dry and warm storage facility in the Netherlands and is available for viewings by appointment.

The yacht is offered for sale in non-operational condition with Classification status as ”Withdrawn”
