Exotic Visitor to Garnish

Air - visits Garnish

The 81-metre long super motor yacht ‘AIR’ paid a visit to Glengarriff Harbour and moored off Garnish Island this week.

It was quite a spectacle to see. AIR was launched last year and it is available for charter at the reported rate of €750,000 per week!

Built in the Koninklijke De Vries yard in Holland, AIR has a sleek and elegant exterior with modern lines, a unique matte black steel hull, and an aluminium superstructure. She measures 265.7 feet in length and has a beam of nearly 39 feet. AIR has a helicopter pad complete with helicopter in case you need to pop out for something!

The vessel can accommodate 12 guests in 7 roomy staterooms including an impressive split level owner’s suite, two guest cabins on the upper deck, one cabin on the main deck, and three on the lower deck. The owners’ observation lounge offers a breathtaking view over the eight-meter long pool on the main deck’s forward area.
