2005 Christensen Tri-Deck Motor Yacht IONIAN PRINCESS


Fort Lauderdale, FL






45.72 m / 150 ft

IONIAN PRINCESS is a distinguished 150’ (45.73m) motor yacht, crafted by two renowned American shipyards: Christensen Yachts and Palmer Johnson. Originally built in 2005, IONIAN PRINCESS is a tri-deck yacht with six staterooms featuring a versatile layout, expansive interior spaces, and ample exterior deck areas ideal for entertaining. 

IONIAN PRINCESS underwent an extensive refit in 2022, where the interior was entirely reimagined through a collaboration between the previous owners and Yacht Next. Additionally, the engine room received a complete overhaul, with brand new Caterpillar C-32 engines and fully rebuilt generators. In 2023-2024 she underwent another refit with a focus on mechanical upgrades and maintenance. 

Accommodating up to 12 guests in six staterooms, with a massage room that can be converted into a seventh stateroom, IONIAN PRINCESS offers exceptional flexibility. This includes a full-beam master suite on the main deck with a marble-clad en suite, one VIP stateroom, three double cabins, and one twin. 

Guests will be delighted by the options for al fresco dining on the sun deck and upper aft deck, along with formal dining in the main deck dining area. An etched glass door adds flexibility, allowing for the creation of an intimate evening ambiance when desired.

The sundeck features a large Jacuzzi, comfortable seating, a barbecue, and stunning panoramic views. At night, the sky lounge transforms into a cinema, complemented by a variety of onboard games. During the day, water sports enthusiasts can enjoy a large collection of toys and tenders available from the yacht’s spacious swim platform.
