A fabulous crew of eight are ready to welcome up to 12 guests in the five sublime cabins, including a master on the main deck and four other cabins below. The design throughout is sophisticated with touches of dark eucalyptus wood and white, giving guests an instant feeling of luxury and calm.
A cruising speed of 14 knots and zero speed stabilisers provide freedom to travel in the utmost comfort, whether lounging on the spacious sundeck or soaking in the panoramic views from the luxurious upper deck salon.
Captain Sergios Kakarantzas joined MY Souraya in 2017 and is no stranger to the sea. A veteran of the Merchant Marines, he joined the yachting industry in 2001 and has never looked back. He has worked on some of the most exceptional yachts on the market, but feels he has found his home on Souraya. Sharing the owner’s passion for the sea, he brings a sense of calm and professionalism to everyone on board. Polite and happy with a wealth of knowledge to share, he is the captain everyone is looking for.
Stepping on board Souraya, she immediately gives the impression of a much larger yacht. Wide open spaces, an open plan salon and a minimal, unobstructive design are complemented by beautiful materials, creating a perfect harmony.
Guests particularly love the three levels of exterior living space, whether dining alfresco in one of the built-in seating areas, or enjoying a drink at the bar on the sundeck. Captain Sergios has crafted an exceptional crew, worthy of such a remarkable yacht.
The chief steward has unrivaled cocktail knowledge and the deckhand, an experienced sailor, is an excellent teacher of watersports and diving. Putting their obvious competences aside, perhaps the most valuable attribute of Souraya’s crew is a strong, family like bond which is felt immediately when you walk on board, and allows the guests to feel instantly at home. Service is seamless, desires anticipated, and a sense of teamwork allows the client to sit back and relax, knowing that every detail will be attended to.
Souraya is most at home in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, and the crew have plenty of secluded anchorages and stunning views to share. They have been known to go to great lengths to time the perfect sunrise view or show of shooting stars. These are just a few examples…the rest is waiting to be discovered.
The culinary experience on board Souraya creates one of the most lasting impressions from any charter, and Chef Angelos Christodoulou is never one to disappoint. A culinary-trained chef with 15 years of experience as sole chef on large motor yachts, he is a master when it comes to customising menus to meet his guests’ demands and desires, and this is thanks to his endless repertoire of cuisines and expertise.
Dedicated to using high quality, fresh ingredients to delight but also surprise his clients, Angelos has even published a book called ‘A Taste of Heaven’ which highlights a special selection of recipes he has created over the years.
Chef Christodoulou is of course partial to his Greek roots, but his culinary inspirations don’t stop there. He is particularly drawn to the cuisine and philosophy of Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi, who strives to find the often elusive balance between gourmet and comfort cuisine. Following in his footsteps, Angelo always aims for that perfect combination of Mediterranean simplicity and multi-level flavors, and his past guests will attest that he usually succeeds.
