Built by Alloy Yachts to Lloyd’s Registry standards and MCA compliant, AKIKO was first launched in 2007 and went on to pick up five major honours at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.

The 112 ft. Custom expedition yacht features a sophisticated exterior design and engineering by Gregory Marshall. Previously named VvS1 (after a grade of diamonds), she is proudly introduced to the Australian charter market following an extensive refit in New Zealand in 2016-2017 by McMullen and Wing.

An expedition style motor yacht, AKIKO is versatile enough to enter small bays, anchor behind coral atolls or for game fishing over submarine reefs, whilst her luxurious design won 4 premium prizes at the World Superyacht Awards after her launch in 2008.

The Owners wanted to find the perfect name that reflected her country of origin, New Zealand. ākikō means “at a distance from home”, which is the traditional Maori translation.

Wonderful charter references:

Charter Client, 3-week Christmas charter, December 2018 in Papua New Guinea:

“The Principal thinks that the yacht was built to a very high standard and is structurally in very good condition. It is exceptionally quiet and the stabilizers are excellent. The artworks on board are beautiful.
The toys and dive equipment were very good.
The crew were all very good. He commented that Craig, as Captain, bent over backwards to ensure that they had the best experience and he appreciated that very much. Craig, the guide, was clearly well-connected and was good at explaining local customs, culture, etc.
The chef was really good and produced excellent food.
The chief stewardess was efficient and also a “phenomenal” trainer for their daily workout on deck.
The Principal confirmed it was an outstanding charter and the holiday of a lifetime. It is rare that I receive such positive and effusive reviews from him, so I can only say WELL DONE to you and your crew for an amazing job! He was still buzzing when he spoke to me.”

Papua New Guinea is a stunning destination best explored by private vessel. The country’s 5,000 different clans, together speaking over 850 separate languages, form the most culturally diverse nation on Earth. Similarly, the diverse landscapes that stretch from oceanic trenches to expansive tropical reefs provide the varying landscapes that are home to five percent of the species found on the planet.
An experienced expedition leader who understands the people of this diverse nation and knows the best locations above, and below, the waves is key to a memorable sojourn in the diving mecca and anthropological marvel that is Papua New Guinea. Visitors are left humbled by the warmth and sincerity of the welcome they have received each and every day and overjoyed by the unparalleled diving and snorkelling.
