Built by Benetti in 2010, Africa I is a sensational yacht that is sure to impress. A refresh in 2021 has left her in as-new condition and an unbeatable base for enjoying a charter to remember. A popular choice with celebrities, in 2019 she was the charter yacht of choice for footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and his family. Follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo by experiencing this special yacht for yourself.
Africa I is packed full of endless details, with every aspect of her design tailored towards delivering the perfect charter. Guests will be in good hands with her experienced crew of twelve*, who are dedicated to creating special charter memories for their guests. Africa I is an especially popular choice for families, with numerous family-friendly touches throughout the yacht.
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.
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.
A large line up of water toys include the brand new tenders, Seabobs, Seadoo waverunners, wakeboards, paddleboards and many more. Not forgetting the giant inflatable slide that adults and children alike will love! 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.
