It's Asgard alright but not as we know her! This 42–metre British Virgin Island flagged sailing vessel of the same name as Ireland's beloved former Sail Training Vessels arrived into Cork Harbour today. She makes a fine picture berthed at James O'Brien's Marina at Monkstown, dwarfing all else at the latest marina facility in the harbour.

The custom sailing yacht was built by Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany at their Lemwerder shipyard , she was delivered to her owner in 1993 and last refitted in 2015. This luxury vessel's design and engineering are the work of Bruce King Yacht Design. Previously named Hetairos, her luxurious interior was designed by Andrew Winch.

Asgard's interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests overnight in five cabins, comprising a master suite, two double cabins and two twin cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to four crew onboard in two cabins to ensure a 'relaxed luxury yacht' experience.
