One of the most legendary yachts on the charter market, the 157-foot (47.85m) tri-deck superyacht BIG SKY is truly remarkable. This impressive motor yacht is outfitted with all the amenities needed for an exceptional on-water holiday that guests will never forget. From her full suite of tenders and toys to her resplendent interior lounge spaces to her beautiful deck areas primed for enjoying the best of on-water living, there is no better yacht to choose for a charter with family and friends than BIG SKY.

Charter yacht BIG SKY was launched in 2010 by renowned yacht builder Oceanfast, who also is responsible for the yacht’s exterior design and naval architecture. BIG SKY is in immaculate condition, benefiting from continuous upgrades and a rigorous maintenance schedule, with her latest refit in 2021. The yacht is spacious with a 28-foot (8.53m) beam, ensuring there is abundant room for guests to socialize and entertain as well as enjoy privacy and seclusion, as desired. BIG SKY cruises at 14 knots and has a maximum speed of 16 knots.

The interior spaces of BIG SKY are sophisticated and modern. Designed by Alder & Tweed Design Co., the yacht offers ample lounge areas. Her main salon features massive windows allowing plenty of natural light and stunning views and is perfect for entertaining thanks to a 65-inch surround-sound TV and state-of-the-art Audio/Visual package and Wi-Fi throughout. Adjacent to the main salon is the dining salon that offers formal dining for 11. The yacht’s skylounge is another fantastic entertaining area with innovative sliding windows that create an alfresco effect throughout this deck. The space is outfitted with a beautiful onyx bar, multiple seating areas and an 80-inch surround-sound TV.

Eleven guests will enjoy restful nights at sea aboard BIG SKY in five sumptuous staterooms, each of which is outfitted with an en-suite bath complete with robes, slippers, Molton bath products and more. The master suite is located forward on the main deck. This full-beam sanctuary benefits from abundant natural light courtesy of large windows. In addition to a sumptuous King bed, this stateroom also has a chaise lounge to starboard and desk and chair to port. The en-suite features a stunning deep sculptural tub, a separate stall shower, an enclosed toilet and bidet and spacious vanity with his-and-hers sinks, among other amenities. The yacht’s additional four staterooms are located below deck and include three queen staterooms, each with walk-around beds, and one double stateroom, which also has a Pullman berth. All staterooms are beautifully appointed and offer en-suite baths. BIG SKY carries a professional crew of 10 highly experienced crew dedicated to providing guests the highest level of service while providing memories of a lifetime.

The exterior spaces of BIG SKY are sleek, sexy and contemporary. The yacht’s exceptional charter-friendly layout provides three teak decks – each of which offers alfresco dining – for guests to enjoy. The main deck aft and skylounge aft both feature lounge spaces. Guests are likely to enjoy most meals aft on the skylounge deck where 10 are comfortably seated, and a comfortable stairway provides access to the sprawling sundeck. Divided into three sections, the sundeck features a private Jacuzzi surrounded by massive sun pads and table-top bar with four stools forward, a full shaded bar amidship and ample lounge couches with an optional sunshade aft.
