Designed and built for an experienced yachtsman and supervised by an excellent professional crew, ASAHI was destined from the beginning to be a top-notch performer on the water and in the charter market.
Performing on the water, ASAHI has clocked 15 knots reaching and 23 knots surfing downwind. Performing in the charter market, ASAHI is reportedly the only sailing yacht which has 4 Owner/Guest staterooms which convert from 8 single beds to 4 king-sized beds of 7-foot length. In addition, the forward two staterooms can convert to one large master suite with a center line king bed and his and her bathrooms. This makes for incredible versatility which enables ASAHI to cater to any configuration of a charter group. The charter possibilities are limitless.
By the same token, the Crew quarters offer a large, queen-bedded Captain's cabin and two other cabins, one with double and one with twin berths.
On deck the enormous cockpit, free of winches and lines encourages convivial relaxation, while the helm cockpit aft offers a place for the Crew to work easily with access to their Crew quarters below. Wide steps on the reverse transom give immediate dinghy and water access.
Most pertinent to the buyer of ASAHI is the legacy of care inherited. The same meticulous care from the different Owners, has been lavished on ASAHI. Since 2010, the yacht’s systems have been gradually entirely refurbished : new engine 2019, new generators (Kholer 2019 & Onan 2020), new sails 2016 & 2017, etc.
ASAHI is in truly superb condition with numerous important improvements made to update her and bring maximum enjoyment to the Owner, Guests and Crew.
