Inspired by the 1920's and 1930's, Satori offers timeless elegance to the 10 guests that are lucky enough to embark on her for a crewed yacht charter. Satori has 5 large, luxury cabins and 1 that can be converted into a spa room on request. Each room is spacious and luxurious, resulting in guests feeling they are in a 5 star hotel opposed to a yacht! The saloon and dinning area are large yet have a warm and welcoming feel. They provide the perfect area to relax in out of the sun.
Outside, Satori's front deck has an open air cinema, with a fold-away cinema screen and a large sun-bed for guests to enjoy with family and friends. The top deck, provides more sunbathing opportunities but this time with stunning views out of the yacht.
