HELIOS 2 was originally built by a very knowledgeable yachtsman looking for the safest family yacht available. After investing over $30 million in the original construction in 2000/2002, a spectacular yacht was delivered. Since 2017 her present owner has continued to professionally maintain and extensively upgrade the vessel to the highest standards.
HELIOS 2 offers a flexible 5 stateroom layout with two king berth staterooms that convert to 3 single berths each for families with children or single adults. Her Anigre interior is spacious and bright. The sun deck is spectacular and offers multiple seating and lounging options including jacuzzi with sun pad surround. The aft deck is also uniquely well configured with dining table and comfortable social seating in an air conditioned or open air environment depending on conditions. Offering three different dining table options HELIOS 2 guests can enjoy formal or informal dining inside or outside.
While HELIOS 2 offers a large swim platform for easy access to the water she additionally has one of the most attractive features on a 51 meter vessel for owner and guest comfort and safety for tender boarding. Designed with an inside stairway that allows guests to literally step directly into the tender from a water level side shell door. The safety and ease of boarding a tender in this manner from a protected hull side access cannot be understated.
HELIOS 2 offers a rare combination of traditional styling, unrivaled design and builder pedigree and extraordinary condition. It is hard to imagine a more comfortable and flexible layout on a vessel of her size or a vessel of her age in better condition. She is offered seriously for sale by a motivated seller.
