New Support Vessel In Build For Charter Favourite 72m Axioma
When 72m Dunya superyacht Axioma left her Majorcan refit yard in November to cross the Atlantic for a Caribbean season, the world she was released back into had changed somewhat significantly. Despite the unparalleled challenges that have swept the globe, Axioma has defied the odds with a resoundingly successful 2020-2021 charter season, including her first-ever festive charters. The much sought-after superyacht is set to become even more enticing with a support vessel set for delivery in 2023.
Available for charter through its Central Agent, Yachting Partners International, Axioma welcomes 12 guests in 6 opulent cabins designed by the renowned Alberto Pinto. The superyacht also boasts a plethora of exciting onboard facilities, ranging from a Beach Club and Spa to Jet Skis and SeaBobs.
Having adapted to put in place new measures to guarantee onboard safety, Axioma has enjoyed a busy season in the Caribbean, cruising the Leeward Islands from Antigua to Anguilla and securing back-to-back booking across the season. “It was an incredible season,” says Chief Stewardess Heather Campbell. “Our goal was to make up for what may have been lacking ashore. If clubs and restaurants weren’t open, we were able to compensate, providing everything onboard.
“We’re renowned for our spa, casino and onboard entertainment… Of course, our main purpose was to create unforgettable and unique experiences for our guests. We want them to remember their charter aboard Axioma for a long time and share their memories with friends.”
Alena Zilayova, Senior Charter Fleet Manager at Yachting Partners International, praised Heather and the crew for providing such experiences in a testing situation. “I would like to thank guests and brokers who believe in Axioma, the professionalism of her crew and their ability to do everything in their power for guests under such difficult and complex conditions.”
Axioma is looking forward to the season ahead, where she will be cruising in the West Mediterranean across destinations that include the Cote d’Azur. Corsica, Sardinia and the Adriatic from May to mid-October.
Support on the Way
If Axioma’s incredible array of amenities and onboard luxury was not already enough, the superyacht is set to become a haven for unlimited adventures with a new support vessel under construction.
The addition of a support vessel will allow charterers to bring extra guests, whether children, grandchildren or friends. The new vessel will operate alongside Axioma and carry an additional ten guests in five cabins, offering the same level of comfort and leisure as they would expect from the mothership.
The support vessel will have her own dedicated main saloon, spa and swim platform, with plenty of toys and even a mini-submarine! One of the standout features will be a touch-and-go helipad designed for multi-purpose use, transforming into an outdoor disco, cinema, basketball court or events space.
Limited Availability for 2021
Feelings of escapism and the lure of a luxury getaway have become much stronger after the postponements in 2020, and superyachts provide the perfect basis to do so in safety and opulence.
Alena Zilayova notes that once travel restrictions were lifted, bookings picked up quickly last year, with Turkey and Croatia among the first to open their coasts in 2020. Alena expects the same to be the case this year, with the French Riviera, Southern Italy and the Balearics proving particularly popular.
With the YPI office already responding to requests for 2022, Alena Zilayova encourages anyone considering a 2021 charter to get in contact quickly, with new contracts in place to remove any risks should cancellation be necessary.
