This brand new semi-displacement yacht, built by OCEA, France, is both, solid and stylish.
The aft deck features a seating area with a large table for 8 guests. The fixed sunroof covers almost the whole upper deck, which can also easily be enclosed. There are 4 large sofas, wide enough even for sunbathing and 4 dining tables that can be lowered and folded to become smaller cocktail tables. This yacht offers exceptional panoramic views from the upper saloon, the lounge aera in the wheelhouse and the master cabin. PAOLYRE gives a feeling of being close to the water and the guests can enjoy spectacular views at anchorage and also during cruising.
The yacht features an open layout; the interior is furnished with wooden floor, brown velvet upholstery for the salon area, equipped with SAT flat screen TV and Bosé hi-fi system and divided from the dining area by a large glass door. The dining area is equipped with a bar and there is an open country kitchen in stainless steel. The dining table seats 8 guests comfortably. The glass separation protects the salon area from noise and smell. The interior finish is a mixture of different dark woods, warm velvet upholstery and cool stainless steel. The wheelhouse is very large and includes a panoramic lounge area flanked by three full height windows on both sides. The location plus the windows of this salon will allow to fully enjoying the navigation while comfortably seated inside.
The yacht offers accommodation in 5 cabins for up to 10 guests, but the ideal charter party would consist of 6 adults plus 2 – 4 children. The master cabin is beautifully decorated in a fusion of Eastern and Western influences. The walls are covered with real bamboo. The light green bedspread of the 1.80 m wide double bed perfectly matches the green onyx wall colour, as well as the floor of the bathtub and sink area. This area is open and not separated from the master cabin creating the impression of a great deal of space. This impression is further underlined by the large windows in this cabin. The toilet and the shower are separated by a door. A lighting system underneath the bath tub changes colors into different moods. Two double guest cabins (one bed 1,60 m wide, the other one 1,40 m wide) have a wooden finish and the decoration is more traditional. Both cabins have a bathroom with shower ensuite. The further two cabins are equipped with upper and lower beds and are more indicated for children. There are two separate showers for those cabins.
PAOLYRE is also ideal for event charters, as she has different gathering areas, all separated from each other. The top deck is covered by a hard top so is easy to enclose in order to create another large area for cocktail parties during events.
