Launched in 2007, the Infinity Pacific offers charters for 10 guests in five cabins as well as events for up to 50 people.
The megayacht spent several years based in Perth being operated privately for key contacts and friends. Her new owner is based in Sydney and relocated her to the east coast to enjoy cruising and capture the charter market.
The yacht’s exterior was designed by Dutch studio, Cor D Rover, and her interior was a collaboration between Italian designer Luca Dini and Frenchman Fréderic Méchiche.
The interior is dominated by clean lines reminiscent of French townhouse flooded with natural light from the windows and full-glass saloon doors. Her stand out feature is the flybridge jacuzzi offering bird’s eye view.
“We have seen a huge increase in those enquiring to charter in Australia – both Australians and international clients,” said Joachim Howard, Managing Director of Ocean Alliance.
“M/Y Infinity Pacific is a perfect yacht for those interested in chartering in Australia as she is set up for some serious entertaining and has a great range to get to some of the most sought-after destinations.”
Australia’s yachting industry has experienced a year of achievements starting with the release of the Economic Impact Study showing its AUD$1.96 billion contribution to Australian GDP.
It was followed by an international focus on the Kimberley as a yachting destination when it won the Voyager Award at the World Superyacht Awards in Florence in May.
The number of superyacht anchorages in the Whitsunday Islands were also extended to accommodate the growing visitation from large vessels in the region, after years of consultation with the
Great Barrier Marine Park Authority.
“The Whitsunday Islands are a perennial favourite and the additional anchorages in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef have opened up many more options for charterers,” said Howard.
“Achievements like these, along with a thriving event and day charter industry in Sydney, are what driving the growth and encouraging owners to place their yachts on the charter market.”
