Akira One

  • 50m | Benetti | 1998 (2020)
Akira One 1200x800 7 This sleek 50m 1998 built Benetti exudes elegance and style following a full interior/exterior refit last year, which was jointly curated by Zuretti & Luxury Projects and naval architect Stefano Natucci.

Light, airy, modernist interiors contrast with classic dark wood accents to particularly good effect in the salon while an enormous Art Deco style chandelier adds a theatrical touch to the formal dining area.

Akira One accommodates 12 to 13 guests across six cabins – an owner’s stateroom, two VIP cabins each boasting a jacuzzi, one double and two twins (one with a Pullman berth).

Boasting a peaceful cruising speed of 14 knots, low fuel consumption and zero speed stabilizers, Akira One’s USP is her spectacular sundeck with jacuzzi, BBQ and panoramic sunbed lounging area.

In a league of her own, Akira One provides an unbeatable combination of comfort, class and complete relaxation.

The Experience 

Definitive nods to luxe hotel style abound on board this majestic craft. An imposing panelled stairwell wouldn’t look out of place in a five star residence yet there is a fine balance struck between the elegantly appointed formal main salon and the cosier, more relaxed upper salon and bar.

A recently upgraded state of the art audio and entertainment system helps to make Akira One the perfect yacht on which to party and entertain. Add to this her wow factor sundeck, where lazy days tanning will morph into even lazier evenings relaxing with loved ones in a spacious, super well equipped entertainment zone, and you can see why Akira One has become such a jewel in the crown.

The generous full beam owner’s stateroom on the main deck features a jacuzzi and a classically designed marble ensuite, an homage to the timeless sophistication of a bygone era and an indication of the extensive level of comfort offered throughout all six staterooms.

With a full of array of the latest models in water toys, a large swimming platform and an attentive and highly efficient crew of 11 catering to all your needs, Akira One will leaving a lasting impression of the good times shared on board.

Akira One cuisine

Subtle and delicate influences from Asia infuse signature dishes from further afield including soba noodle salad with cucumber and mango, beef tartar with Asian flavours and seafood kritharoto with mussels and shrimps.

A typically light Mediterranean spread might start with tricolour cherry tomatoes, carob rusks and katiki domokou followed by shrimps with fennel and saffron. A main of sea bass with smoked aubergine cream, inspired by his Greek roots, could be finished off with orange pie and yoghurt mousse with exotic fruits.

For heartier appetites, Dimitris offers green salad with pears and gorgonzola followed by beef carpaccio with caramelized onions. A saffron risotto with beef tenderloin and red wine sauce is perfectly rounded off by tiramisu with mandarin sorbet.
