Classical yachts for a modern world.
For decades Austin Parker has produced extraordinarily desirable and aspirational yachts based upon sound classical roots and fine craftsmanship. Today, the brand is the sum of its heritage with a line of yachts often described as simply gorgeous and timeless: A reflection of the past and a vision of the future.
A sleek profile has become the familiar and distinctive form of an Austin Parker hull, based upon contemporary architectural solutions with slanting sterns, a low profile over the water and a high, solid bow. Together with a centrally located superstructure, this all creates a modern and impressively individual look: An interpretation of the graceful and balanced lines for which this brand has always been famed.
The range comprises walk-around models, the Ibiza range, with wide, convenient side walkways that allow full, safe use of the entire deck space. Motor yacht models called Mahon, larger in size and ideally suited to family cruising. Complementing these models is the flybridge line called Palma, which meets the needs of those seeking a vessel with increased onboard space for enhanced comfort and pleasure at sea whilst undertaking more challenging cruising.
The Austin Parker offering is completed by 2 designs of larger-sized yachts: the Ibiza 85 WA in fibreglass and the AL 86 Flybridge in aluminium, both with innovative, functional design, intended for the discerning owner looking for a vessel that will respond to their passion for yachting.
Gorgeously elegant and sumptuously refined, these yachts are renowned worldwide for their exquisite taste and attention to detail. With stunning looks and a solid approach to build quality, Austin Parker specialises in customising their craft to the specific desires and needs of their customers. When you are aboard an Austin Parker there is no doubting that your surroundings are something special, something very special indeed.
