Aquatic Dreams is a 52' 6" Azimut Luxury Yacht sleeps six people. The yacht consists of 2 State Rooms w/ 2 Round Full-Size Beds & 2 Full Bathrooms w/ Showers. Linens, Towels & Toiletries are provided. The Family Room has a full size pull out couch bed that sleeps 2 totaling six guests. This luxury motor yacht was built in Italy and has a top speed of 32 Knots. The Upper Flybridge has lots of seating, a wet bar, grill and table for entertaining. The interior space is exceptional w/ full kitchen!
The space is an inviting sea of comfortable plushness with an exceptionally spacious galley on the lower deck, only three steps lower than the saloon, so the chef can still converse with guests. Directly above is the large, sloping windshield, flooding the cooking area with natural light. Two large, circular portholes alongside rich-looking, black Granulon molded countertops offer more light and air, while recessed fixtures provide task lighting for the chef. The kitchen includes a microwave, Keurig Coffee Maker, Refrigerator, dishwasher and three-burner stove, a double sink that is molded into the counter and abundant storage space. Lots of roominess in the Galley, with adequate space for cooking, not just warming up a few snacks in the microwave and the cooktop’s three burners was fitted with a stout pot restraint, a functional feature too seldom seen on yachts of this style. Forward of the stove is about four feet of open counter space for food prep, a full-height double-door refrigerator/freezer (in a handsome varnished cherry cabinet), and a matching full-height cabinet with five shelves, each about two feet wide and more than a foot deep. There are also five big under-counter cabinets for stowing bulky items; one is fitted with bottle racks, while another has a nifty pull-out shelf for spices and smaller items. Tucked behind a series of varnished wood panels that look like a decorative cornice above the counter are five more eye-level cabinets. The master suite, forward, has a queen-size berth. There's a circular shower stall and a countertop done in an attractive liquid resin material in the head. Teak soles in the head and the separate shower area add a classy touch, as does the polished glass countertop, complete with a household-size under-mount stainless steel sink. Above the sink, there’s a mirrored panel that serves as a door to the medicine cabinet, and when the panel is slid to the side, it also covers a porthole, offering privacy to anyone using the facilities. The guest stateroom also has a queen-size berth, as well as a head compartment that's about equal in size to the master head. Headroom throughout the below decks area runs about 6 feet, 5 inches. There are two nice touches in the companionway that leads to the staterooms. One is a clear overhead panel that allows daylight from the windshield to flood the space. Sightlines from the lower helm are excellent allowing great visibility while docking along side a pier. Buffered from the guest stateroom and the galley by two heads, the master stateroom, all the way forward, is a private oasis with an astounding amount of stowage. Along each side of the centerline double berth are two, 24"x18" eye-level cabinets, plus under-counter bins for your wallet, camera, cellphone, and such. To starboard, there’s a full-height, 30-inch-wide hanging locker and an adjoining cubby with three shelves (each about 2'x2'x1'); a great place for stowing extra towels, blankets, and other stuff that finds its way aboard. Alongside the locker is a full-height cabinet, 24 inches wide, with three drawers and three deep shelves; plenty big for a weeklong getaway. But the slickest feature of the stateroom is built into the aft bulkhead. Gently tugging on a tiny cloth tab deployed a small fold-up dressing table, complete with built-in makeup mirror and lights. Folded up, it disappears into the beautifully lacquered panels on the bulkhead. Custom Interior throughout with a TV with cable are located in Main Salon and Master Bedroom.
