Aqua Voyage, the nautical hospitality arm of KOP Hotels & Resorts, has officially welcomed the arrival of the ‘Sea Bear’, a Westport 130, to its fleet of luxury chartered yachts.
Owned by Reignwood Holding, the 40-metre long super yacht stands at over 15-metres high with an almost eight-metre beam and twin 2,735 horsepower engines. The Sea Bear is able to reach a top speed of 24 knots and cruises at 20 knots with a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
More than just offering good numbers on a page, the Sea Bear has five-stateroom layouts, and a flybridge on the top deck, making it ideal for extended cruising or an event venue.
The main deck has a spacious master stateroom with tub, separate shower with double shower heads and two washrooms.
Accommodations on board the Sea Bear comprised of the master stateroom on the main deck and four guest staterooms on the lower deck. Besides the state-of-the-art amenities and individual baths in each room, there’s a large saloon, dining room and fully equipped galley on the main deck.
A lesser known fact about the Sea Bear? It’s previously owned by golf legend Jack Nicklaus. It has been curated as a showcase to his legacy, housing 36 unique pieces created from items donated from his personal collection or the Jack Nicklaus Museum.
By dockside, the Sea Bear is able to accomodate up to 50 guests at any one time, with 30 while cruising and a comfortable 10 overnight. This is to ensure that the best experience is being given to guests with its generous and cosy setting.
The fully equipped galley encompasses a casual dining area for five persons.
Besides the indoor setting on the main deck, let’s not forget the sky lounge on the upper deck, which features a wet bar, gaming table and plush seating. Outdoors on the aft deck, a large circular table accommodates eight guests, as well as a full-service bar with icemaker and refrigerator.
Alternatively, guests may opt for a dip in the Jacuzzi on the upper deck or head up to the flybridge for a relaxing drink or meal from the built-in barbeque. The pilot house on the upper deck includes two helm chairs and a raised semicircular spectator seating area for those who wish to witness the navigation of the yacht as it cruises.
