First look: Inside Aegean Yacht's 39m classic sailer White Island

25 October 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Bodrum-based shipyard Aegean Yacht has provided a first look inside its 39-metre sailing yacht White Island. Commissioned in 2021, it was delivered after 19 months of construction. 

The 261 GT custom build is constructed in steel, with an oak interior and two aluminium masts. The design of the yacht has been developed entirely by the yard, which handled the concept, layout, naval architecture, marine engineering and both the exterior and interior design.

Accommodation is for up to 10 across a full-beam master cabin, three VIP cabins and a twin-berthed cabin, all en suite. There is further space for six crew, whose quarters are complemented by a crew mess and "strategically positioned galley".

Interiors incorporate a white and neutral colour scheme, patinated oak floors and walls and stainless steel detailing. There are also six pieces from Turkish photographer Ali Kabas featured throughout. The saloon, described as "cozy" by the shipyard, is complemented by a marble-topped dining table surrounded by bespoke lounge chairs. 

Designed with teak flooring and mahogany bulwarks, the aft deck benefits from a large signature daybed (also designed by Aegean Yacht), a white lacquered table framed by Italian Minotti chairs, and an entertainment screen.

White Island's sails collectively span 715 square metres

Powered by twin MAN 600hp engines, and backed by a fuel capacity of 16,000 litres and freshwater storage of 8,000 litres, White Island can achieve a speed of 13 knots. Additionally, three gensets guarantee an uninterrupted power supply throughout her voyages.

According to BOATPro, Aegean Yacht currently has two superyacht projects under construction, including its in-build 37.3-metre Project Tempest.
