Built in 2002 by Palmer Johnson, an extensive refit in 2019 has transformed Helios 2 into the the floating paradise craft which will welcome you today, with a wide variety of dedicated spaces in which to lose yourself in dreamy vacation nirvana.
Her expansive sun deck oozes charisma, with a Jacuzzi taking centre stage alongside a wet bar and stools, BBQ and padded sun loungers as well as a corner sofa for profiting from the stunning views. This area can be partially shaded on the aft deck on request. There’s also a 42 inch flip down plasma TV as well as a gym area featuring a treadmill and cross-trainer.
The bridge deck offers a sun lounger zone with nattily striped mattresses as well as an impressive sky lounge in which to relax, chill out and socialise. A roomy L-shaped sofa dominates the space, which also features a computer station, 42 inch plasma TV, a bar and wine chiller. Step on through to the aft deck where you can experience sophisticated yet laidback al fresco dining in sunshine or under starlit skies for 10 guests.
Helios 2’s main salon is a charming space with a card table, ample seating and entertainment system, also offering adjacent formal dining for 12. Her aft deck is air conditioned and can be partially enclosed if the weather becomes inclement, providing yet another ideal zone specifically designed for the ultimate in relaxation, with comfortable sofas, a wet bar with ice maker and a further outside dining area with built-in banquette style seating.
Sleeping 10 across five spacious staterooms, a full beam master on the main deck offers a king-size bed, mini salon with chaise longue, entertainment system and spacious ensuite with double sinks, bath, enclosed WC and shower. Walk-in wardrobes and a private fully equipped office complete the master set up.
