Don Juan II
Don Juan II, the latest addition to the Yachts de Paris fleet, designed by the naval architect Olivier Flahaut, was converted from a hull built in the 1930s and is reminiscent of the English and American boats of the period such as those designed by Nathanael Herreshoff.
It subtly combines the advantages of a modern craft with the old-fashioned charm and quiet luxury of an authentic yacht. Its spacious bar and saloon, panoramic views, air conditioning, sound-proofing and non-smoking space provide outstanding comfort and convenience.
Brass fittings, mahogany woodwork, open and covered decks, uniformed crew, elegantly decorated tables and superb service all contribute to its very special luxurious atmosphere reminiscent of the great cruises of yesteryear.
