A beautiful and timeless 30-metre sailing yacht, Aphrodite was designed by Andre Hoek and built in 1993 at the renowned Vitters Shipyard in Holland.

Her minimal sheer, low freeboard, elegant transom and subtle coach roof combine to form her beautiful clean modern lines whilst retaining a timeless nautical character. The sleek external appearance and flush decks hide a spacious and comfortable interior with large central saloon space, professional galley and generous cabin sizes.


Aphrodite was designed for long distance cruising and she has proven her sea-worthiness with countless ocean crossings, yet she is equally at home serving as a base for further adventuring in remote archipelagos and secluded anchorages. Following her previous life in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, she has recently completed a two year refit and now plies the waters of South East Asia: from the unknown Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma) to the majestic limestone islands around Phuket to the remote Indonesian islands of the Anambas region in the South China Sea.


"Down below" a combination of high-gloss varnished cherry wood, white ceiling panels and bright maple floors creates a pleasant and light atmosphere. The saloon is equipped with a large LCD screen and full multimedia and stereo equipment. The expansive aft master suite includes a large queen size bed, separate desk area and generous en-suite with his/her basins and a full-size bath. It has its own entrance via the aft cockpit, or access forward to the saloon via the galley.



Two reasonable sized guest cabins forward with double beds (and a removable extra bunk for children when required) - round out the guest accommodations suitable for a total of six adults, plus children.

A modern and spacious bathroom "Head" off the passageway serves as a shared bathroom for the two forward guest cabins.

A hall around the main mast, flooded with natural light from a prism window, connects the forward guest cabins to the guest bathroom.

Further forward are the separate crew quarters with their own bathroom and deck access.

The yacht's laundry is located in the crew section.
