Built by AB Yachts in 2010, Five Waves is a yacht that manages to combine lightweight design, raw power and sleek luxury that makes it the naval equivalent of a modern Rolls-Royce. With a top speed of 36 knots, it’ll beat most yachts of its size in a straight sprint due to its clever use of carbon fibre in its hull and superstructure. While this kind of design is more commonly seen on sports and racing boats, Five Waves uses it to augment its already luxurious appearance.

This 2-deck yacht manages to pack a lot of things into its sleek hull, including sumptuous interior design by Guido de Groot. Beautiful, understated shades of gold and bronze adorn the ship on the outside and inside, with ambient lighting fixtures giving the ship its sleek, retro-futuristic stylings its charm. Air conditioning throughout the interior gives guests an opportunity to escape the warm air of the Med.

Her main salon features a lounging area and formal dining for up to 10 guests. Additional dining options for can be found on the main deck, an area that is also ideal for entertainment thanks to the well-appointed bar. Five Waves can accommodate up to ten guests in five spacious cabins, including an en-suite master suite, a VIP and three twin cabins, two of which are convertible. There is also the possibility of accommodating an additional guest in a Pullman berth. Five Waves runs with a professional crew of six to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.

The outdoor living areas are ideal for lounging in the sun all the while enjoying the peace and quiet of marine life. Sunbathing options include the main deck forward and aft as well as the sun deck, featuring a Jacuzzi and various shading options. Five Waves manages to be a superb balance between high-speed cruising and low-speed relaxation.
