Following a Classic Boat magazine Restoration of the Year-winning keel-up restoration 2015-16 at the yard of Stirling and Son, Plymouth, with interiors furnished and decorated in immaculate taste to designs by Paris-based India Mahdavi, LIFE AQUATIC is now a superior boat both structurally and cosmetically to the one Silvers launched in 1952 as THELMA VI.
At 72 feet, she is to the longest model of James A Silver naval architect and managing director John Bain's renowned Ormidale design series, and has long proved herself as an exceptional sea-boat, including charter work as a steady platform for event filming and viewing with her trusty Gardner diesel engines and Vosper Maxi Fin stabilizers.
Now with 3 double cabins, a single, and crew accommodation, LIFE AQUATIC is an incredibly exciting and unique option in turn key condition.
