Many yachts claim to be unique
but very few fulfil this description with
convincing sincerity. It is just possible that
all avenues have been fully exploited, although
the recent launch of the custom 35.5 meter motor
sailing schooner Iraklis L from the Onar
Shipping Company in Greece proves that an
established, classic design can be successfully
reinvented. With her union of traditional Greek
schooner heritage blended sympathetically with
modern super yacht standards of luxury, there is
an irresistible visual appeal: the sharply raked
stem, the heavily flared bow with a dominant
bowsprit and stainless steel dolphin striker and
elegant sheer line create an atmosphere of
romance and adventure. This is further enhanced
at night by the spreader and side deck down
lighters, and by strings of lights fitted along
the scupper space between the bulwarks and the
hull, that turn the yacht into a glittering
jewel. The classic Greek schooners broad beam
and extensive deck space are highly suitable for
carrying passengers and the popularity of this
Type of motor sailer as charter boats is clear.
On Iraklis L, the external and internal space is
fully optimized with three separate areas on
deck the after deck, the foredeck and the
upper deck forward of the wheelhouse allowing
exceptional entertainment potential and
providing multiple options for 12 guests and
additional party guests. Internally, the 3.2
meter draught is almost all hull with 45 tones
of lead in the long keel supplying stability. An
indication of the volume below decks is
illustrated by the three large, elliptical
portholes to port and starboard for the five
guest cabins on the lower deck as although the
solid bulwarks give the impression that these
portholes sit low in the freeboard, the windows
are at head height internally.
Iraklis L designed by Lally Poulias, comfortably
accommodates 12 plus 2 guests in 6 cabins.
One Master cabins on main deck.
One VIP cabin on lower deck and sofa.
