Built by Benetti in 2010 with the latest refit 2021
The bright, airy and welcoming interior, with nautical touches, is an inviting retreat to share with family and friends. Wheelchair access ensures easy access around the yacht. Inside, the large main saloon features lounge seating and a formal dining table that is perfect for sharing special memories. A second key space is the upper lounge, which is the ultimate space to retreat to with relaxed seating, a fully socked l-shaped bar, a desk, and a huge cinema screen for indulgent movie nights.
With six spacious cabins, AFRICA I can welcome up to 12 guests. The master is on the main deck and VIP on the upper deck, while two doubles and two twins are on the lower deck. The special twin kids cabin is especially popular with families, ensuring younger guests have a space that is all their own.
Outside, AFRICA I excels with large spaces on every deck. An al fresco dining table is located on the covered aft deck – this is a popular space for hosting. Steps sweep down from the main deck to the generously-sized swimming platform, making it effortless for guests to enjoy the warm water. On the upper deck there is another dining table set up, while the dun deck is packed full of a number of features including a gym and exercise gear, sun loungers and a Jacuzzi.
Africa I will appeal to active guests, with the yacht an approved RYA water sports centre. A large line up of water toys include the Scorpion 7.5m case tender, Seabobs, Seadoo waverunners, paddleboards and an electric jet board. Not forgetting the giant inflatable slide that adults and children alike will love! The crew includes qualified divers and there is a full diving set up for those wanting to explore under the waves. Cruising quietly at 12 knots, Africa I reaches speeds of 24 knots for an enjoyable ride, with comfort assured thanks to a modern stabilisation system.
