2022 Axcell Airlift 650
Built with the supervision of and innovation of Axcell's yacht construction team. This award-winning, one-of-a-kind yacht features a gorgeous exterior design by award-winning mega yacht designer J.C. Espinosa and a decadent interior by the world-renowned Steven Karp.

This Axcell 650 is one of a kind that is outfitted with top of the line materials. Only one Axcell Airlifter 650 was built over a 10 year design and architecture period from 2010 to 2020. This makes "Awol Shaka" a truly one of a kind, exotic yacht. The inside is absolutely gorgeous, with a leather sofa and leather headliner throughout hardwood floors. The galley is lovely with large granite countertops, black appliances, and a lot of pantry and storage space close to the laundry room with a washer and dryer and flip-down bed.

AWOL SHAKA, can accommodate 6 guests in 3 opulent staterooms, with all staterooms featuring a private ensuite head and shower. Other features included a spacious sundeck and Axcells patented "airlift" system which applies a finely engineered stream of air between the water and the hull of the vessel to increase speed and decrease chop while underway.

A highly successful charter yacht, this Axcell represents the highest quality-in-innovation yacht available for sale in the world today. A power cat, a hovercraft, AND a 65' luxury yacht. With potential for charter income and professional management.

The engine rooms are impressive, stainless steel fuel lines, top-shelf Northstar AGM batteries, and loomed electrical runs. Each engine room has a single 1,015-mhp Caterpillar C18 ACERT diesel on the centerline, a high-tech, lightweight, carbon-fiber jackshaft, and a power-takeoff pump at the rear of the marine transmission. The jackshafts couple each engine to a fully articulated ZF MiniRex surface-piercing drive. The power-takeoff unit energizes the onboard hydraulics, including a Lewmar windlass and thrusters. PTU driven hydraulics last MUCH longer and are more powerful and responsive than their electronically driven counterparts.

The engineer combined a mixture of technologies and equipment to create the innovative "airlift", hover-craft system. The airlift system is electronically and automatically controlled: The air blower pump takes four to seven percent of the engine?s power, seamlessly controlled such that when you press the throttles forward at 1,300 rpm, the fan starts to create pressure, and the boat begins to fly on a self created sheet of air...
