Since her debut onto the charter market in 2021, Koukles has received nothing but outstanding feedback, with particularly high praise for her captain and chef. With Captain Giannis behind the wheel heading up a fantastic crew and Konstantinos in the galley, you are guaranteed the charter of a lifetime.
Delivered by Azimut in 2008 with a refit in 2021, Koukles is a high-performing yacht that perfectly balances contemporary design and space with comfort. During her 2021 refit her exterior and interior were upgraded as well as her interior redecorated, including the purchase of new linen, beach towels and dinnerware.
She boasts expansive deck space with multiple areas for relaxation, featuring a large foredeck with optional sunshade and sunpads, the perfect area for privacy when at anchor in busier ports. On the flybridge there is more comfortable seating, along with sun pads, a wetbar, a BBQ, a four person Jacuzzi and lounging chairs. This entire area can also be protected by a sunroof when desired. Throughout the yacht there is also an incredible top of the range Sonos sound system, the perfect addition to any onboard special event. Her fully sheltered aft deck offers an additional space for al fresco dining.
Her interior design is by Carlo Galeazzi, with fixtures and fittings in dark wood contrasting with light and modern upholstery – her main salon is open and bright and features a bar and 50-inch TV. She accommodates up to nine guests in one master suite, one VIP, one double and one twin cabin with a Pullman berth. All cabins feature entertainment centres and ensuite bathrooms. Her full beam master suite is exceptionally spacious and accessed via a private staircase, providing extra privacy and seclusion. It has a walk-in wardrobe, and the ensuite features his and her sinks, a large bathtub with a jacuzzi setting, and a shower with hydro massage.
Koukles also features a great list of water toys including fitness equipment, a jet ski, a Seabob, water scooters, SUPS, inflatables and 4m Yamaha tender and more! She has a top speed of 24 knots, and also features zero speed stabilisers to ensure smooth cruising.
“We could not have been better looked after by the captain and his entire crew. I hadn’t really appreciated before we set off just how much of a difference the crew can make to the success and enjoyment of a cruise. We had great fun and were superbly looked after by every single member of the team – by the end we felt like we were leaving family on board!”
Whether parties wish to charter as a couple or with family and friends, look no further than Koukles.
