There is no place too remote for the five-deck, 42.8 metre (138' 5") 460Exp explorer yacht MOKA, designed and built specifically for long voyages and with an admirable "green hullprint" – the first of its kind from the Italian Shipyard, Sanlorenzo and engineered for adventure.
A standout charter superyacht at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, MOKA is available for charter in the Caribbean and Bahamas in winter and in summer 2017, plans to cruise the myriad islands of the Mediterranean, South of France and Balearics in Spain.
In 2016, MOKA received a Judges' Commendation for Design for Displacement Motor Yachts Below 500GT of 42M to 46.9m at the World Superyacht Awards, recognised for her brilliant fusion of luxury characteristics and genuine explorer qualities.
Since MOKA was launched at Monaco Yacht Show in 2015, her success and popularity with charter guests have inspired the sale of four additional 460Exp yachts, which are currently in build.
With her captivating exterior lines by Francesco Paszkowski Design, MOKA is capable of negotiating the world's seas in all kinds of weather and can roam autonomously for three months, without needing to resupply or dock. MOKA can cruise for more than 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots without refueling. This is possible thanks to her 13,209-gallon (50,000-liter) fuel tank and twin 1,300-hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines.
MOKA is designed to be your "home away from home", wherever you may roam – whether Monaco during F1 beckons, or a polar adventure seizes your imagination for your next luxury yacht charter.
MOKA is equipped with various high-tech features, all the services and the large internal spaces to entertain and provide for guests' every whim while cruising for extended periods. Befitting an expedition yacht, she has plentiful refrigerators for stocking food and containers for waste collection. Added to that is an extremely limited draft, meaning she can access shallow waters for the ultimate in global exploration.
On her maiden voyage MOKA completed the 5,600 nautical mile journey from Viareggio to Florida at an average speed of 12.5 knots, which totaled a month at sea in various conditions which she handled with ease and treated her guests to total luxury.
The 460Exp is classified "Green Plus" by RINA (Royal Institution of Naval Architects). She is able to remain anchored for long periods of time without having to make use of generators; eliminating emissions, vibration and noise.
MOKA was conceived by her owners as a vessel that would allow guests to "live life to the full", quenching their thirst for discovery, the pleasures of life at sea and taking advantage of the thrill of exploring every remote reach on the planet – if that appeals.
For tenders and toys, MOKA has a larger than average stern area on the lower deck that accommodates an array of top of the range equipment. These include an 8.5m Lomac Adrenalina tender with 300 HP Yamaha engine, two Yamaha FZR 2-person supercharged Waverunners, waterskis, wakeboards, SUPs, kayaks, Seabobs, inflatable tow toys and snorkeling gear.
At anchor, the large teak deck aft becomes a superb recreational area, where guests can sunbathe, take a dip in the ocean, or swim against the current in the large infinity pool. The stern area also boasts a complete beach club, with bar, sauna and a dive space.
Accommodation for 10 guests comprises four large double-bed cabins on the lower deck, where the wellness room with a second swimming pool, gym, and sauna with Turkish bath are also located. The vast owner's suite is located on the main deck.
The gym features large windows on both sides, affording breathtaking views of the surrounding sea, and for admiration insider, a portrait by Italian painter Tatiana Villani, whose work is found throughout the yacht.
The interiors aboard MOKA are incredibly lavish while being extremely cosy. A palette of subdued colours creates a calm, relaxing ambience. Beige and white are paired with red and grey accents, with beautiful timber joinery in American mahogany, oak and teak. Impeccable glazing brings the outside in. Aft, a large window looks out on the swimming pool.
MOKA is wi-fi enabled throughout and guests can access Crestron Controller/Kaleidescape with 1900 movies and extensive music. There are flat screen TVs in every cabin and both saloons, plus a home theatre system in the upper deck saloon and Master suite.
For your fitness and wellbeing while on charter, MOKA's gym boasts the latest equipment and views that will make working out a pleasure, with large windows on both sides, affording breathtaking views of the surrounding sea. It also boasts a portrait by Italian painter Tatiana Villani, whose work is to be found throughout the yacht alongside fascinating glass sculptures by Hungarian artist Peter Botos and photography by Alice Ippolito that work in with the yacht's colour scheme.
Cuisine onboard will delight even the most discerning palate. A mini herb garden in the galley supplies fresh fragrant herbs, ideal for Italian cuisine, while the appliances are sourced from the Italian company Boffi, known for its bespoke, 5-star fitouts in professional kitchens.
Captain Doug Pender leads a brilliant crew of nine, attentive to every facet of their guests' charter vacation, from itinerary and daily activities, both onshore and on-water, to menus and personalised touches to commemorate special occasions.
