S\Y ARAVILLA is a beautifully appointed Leopard 46 catamaran designed by Morelli and Melvin and built by Robertson and Caine in South Africa. This is one of the best charter yachts built and ensures our clients have a truly luxury experience. She is the 4-Cabin/4-Head charter model which is the accumulation of 30 years charter experience by some of the largest charter fleets in the world. Built and launched into service in 2010, she was purchased in 2015 and underwent a retrofit to bring her to the current like-new condition. Her home port is St Maarten in the Netherland Antilles where she enjoys year round warmth and sunshine, and is kept in beautiful conditions by her owners.
S\Y ARAVILLA features several unique features to make your charter extra enjoyable. The aft deck bench between davits becomes a swim platform – perfect for afternoon sunning or a launch pad for swimming, snorkeling, or SUP departures. Her single-level cockpit and signature ‘walk-through’ access to the roomy cockpit and aft bathing platform connecting the two transoms ensures navigating the boat at dock or under sail is simple and unencumbered. The integrated cockpit, galley with fold-out countertop, and helm station means entertaining is easy and no one is left out of the party when traveling between destinations – a drink is always close at hand. The massive forward trampoline is the perfect place to socialize with a drink, catch a few rays mid-day, or even sneak in a quick nap when needed. Jump to the controls on the raised helm station located in the hard top roof with open access to the sea.
Inside S\Y ARAVILLA, the high freeboard and streamlined, fine entry hulls offer enough space for even the tallest individuals. In addition, the hulls flare above the waterline providing great interior volume, spacious living accommodations, and reserve buoyancy for sailing in a seaway. The saloon features a bright and airy feeling, and has operable ports forward to let fresh air circulate. The large dinette with wraparound seating and well-outfitted galley show Leopard have taken full advantage of the 25-foot beam. Each hull accommodates two spacious guest cabins (fore and aft) with private ensuite complete with electric head, separate shower stall, and individual basin and shower controls. Cabins are well-ventilated and large windows and hatches provide huge amounts of light.
