About 50m MY Resilience:
Launched in 2008, 50m Resilience (previousy MY Dream) was designed to deliver the best possible comfort for charter guests and, following a full refit in 2014, she continues to impress with her flexible layout, stylish design and luxury amenities.
Superyacht Resilence has an ideal layout for family groups or friends, accomodating 12 guests in six large staterooms. She has one master stateroom on the main deck, one VIP stateroom on the upper deck and four double staterooms on the lower deck, two of which can be converted into twin rooms.
Living space on board Resilience is also comfortable but elegant, with beautiful furnishings and quality finishes such as oak wood panelling and Wenge flooring. Resilience is also fully up to date with on board communications, state-of-the-art entertainment systems and a fully equiped gym.
Captain Andrew Beattie at the helm has many years of experience on board busy charter yachts and, together with his exceptional crew, Resilience is raising the bar for charter guests looking for the experience of a lifetime!
