Satori merges the comforts of a 5-star boutique hotel with a traditional hand-built wooden schooner to create the ultimate classic sailing experience. Inspired by the understated elegance of the 1920s and ‘30s era with exquisite wood detailing and expansive window views, Satori features state-of-the-art living, dining and leisure facilities in a seamless design that amplifies the feeling of space and privacy on board, with various areas for guests to retreat to in intimate seclusion.

Satori was born of the passion and experience of designers Claus and Jeanette Thottrup, the dynamic duo behind the Borgo Santo Pietro Group of lifestyle companies. Inspired by their love of sailing and ongoing quest to create experiences for guests that go above and beyond, Satori unites luxury and nature in fresh and dynamic ways.

Flawless service is therefore built into Satori's DNA, where guests enjoy Michelin-starred dining prepared by a personal chef from the Group's restaurants Meo Modo and La Bottega del Buon Caffé, as well as onboard spa facilities, a range of the latest innovative water toys, and an extensive programme of concierge activities managed by 5-star boutique hotel and estate Borgo Santo Pietro. Each of the eight crew members have been hand-picked for their expertise, whether in navigation and seamanship, gourmet dining or 5-star service, while Satori's two 600-horsepower engines offer guests the choice of both motoring and taking long-haul voyages, all while enjoying the timeless feeling of sailing.


Finished in glossy mahogany and walnut with teak floors, wood panelling and large windows throughout, Satori embodies the slow living and exquisite detail of classic bygone-era sailing. Claus and Jeanette Thottrup took their signature holistic approach to creating distinct atmospheres on board Satori, such as situating the open-view kitchen, bar and dining area mid-deck for greater privacy. Framed by large windows with sweeping views of the sea, the kitchen has been designed to inspire creativity for the chef within as well as invite the guest to actively observe the deft preparation of gourmet dishes.

Satori's front deck is dedicated to cinema and solitude, with a state-of-the-art, fold-away cinema screen and generously sized sunbed that invites a total surrender of the senses to the heat of the sun and lulling motion of the waves. The top deck offers even more options for private sunbathing, with a row of sunbeds enjoying spectacular views over the water, while old-fashioned deck chairs, situated mid-deck, add to the quintessential feeling of sailing upon the seas. The yacht’s bespoke design enables guests to relax in intimate seclusion, with various decks offering separate spaces to enjoy shared company or retreat for a moment of privacy.

Satori’s 35m2 indoor living area provides ample space for guests to lounge and dine in comfort while enjoying panoramic views of the sea. A coffee lounge area on the aft deck with a second bar, comfy lounge seating and a large covered daybed creates a leisurely social ambience where guests can sip freshly brewed espresso coffee or a glass of wine. Satori features five luxury guest rooms, including a master suite, that accommodate up to 10 guests. One of the guest rooms can be converted into a private spa facility with a steam room and used for therapeutic treatments. Before sailing, guests can choose how they would like to use the space and arrange to have a personal therapist on board. To maximise the feeling of freedom and privacy on-board, the captain’s wheelhouse and crew living and working areas are completely separate from the main guest areas.
