James Bond is right at home in this superbly elegant environment of cutting edge design. PANTHALASSA`s sumptuous teak sole and saddle leather wall paneling integrate seamless social spaces defined by functional furniture groupings. Interior accents are bathed in natural
light that flows through a sweep of windows and an array of skylights. The area is designed for guests to melt into a state of blissful relaxation amongst throw cushions, cashmere throws, ergonomic chairs, sprawling couches and handmade silk floor rugs.
PANTHALLASSA is number nine in the series of ten 56m hulls built by Perini Navi. Built to spec for individual owners, each has special details. For example, on the upper deck of PANTHALASSA, the Owners opted for a huge skylight in place of the on-deck Jacuzzi, a better fit with their ideology. They feel that the deck is for relaxing and the ocean is for swimming.
The Captain has been on the yacht from the design stage at the Perini Navi shipyard. He describes the build process as “fascinating, a real challenge and something as a yachtie I’ve always wanted to do…the timing was pretty bad though. It was all through the real horror of the financial crisis, not the best time to be building a big yacht. Perini though, if anybody is recession proof those guys are. They’ve boomed, that’s the only word for it.” PANTHALAASSA emerged as proof in 2010.
PANTHALASSSA is a high performance sailing machine that finished well in the Perini Cup this year, winning the race on day two. Her helm display is an amazing array of state-of-the-art navigation equipment, computer screens, gages, dials and controls, and the Captain is adept with optimizing the technology in any sea conditions.
Just off the helm is the cylindrical video chamber, which, with the touch of a button, becomes completely enclosed by a curved sliding door. The space can also serve as a dining area or a massage and relaxation room. However, we are told that this room gets used the most for the PlayStation.
There are many design aspects about PANTHALASSA that make it unusual. The six- cabin configuration has no master, but rather two identical aft cabins and four equal guest cabins with Pullmans. The hierarchy is there, but it is very subtle. This is an optimal layout for situations in which two families are chartering together.
Needless to say, PANTHALASSA is a very popular yacht with an enthusiastic repeat clientele. Although there are still openings available for charter this winter in the Caribbean as well as next summer in the Mediterranean, they are filling up quickly.
Charter PANTHALASSA and be guaranteed a spectacular, one-of-a-kind experience in flawless surroundings,with impeccable service and gourmet cuisine on board a true sailing machine.
