This 98-foot semi-displacement motoryacht is “best in class” when it comes to interior and exterior volume. Styled by well-known superyacht designer Evan Marshall, the vessel’s elegant interior is characterized by comfortable, overstuffed furniture, fine stonework and high-gloss woods. Eight guests are accommodated in four luxurious suites, including a main-deck master and lower-deck VIP – both with king berths – plus queen and twin staterooms. A 2012 refit updated the soft goods throughout the yacht.

The yacht’s fiberglass hull and superstructure were constructed in Italy, while the interior and mechanical systems were installed in the U.S. – combining the best of Old World craftsmanship and New World technical know-how. Equipped with twin 16V2000 MTU diesel engines, she offers a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 21 knots, allowing owners and guests to enjoy a more varied itinerary than many other yachts of her size. Her pilothouse and flybridge helm stations are equipped with an impressive array of navigation instruments and electronics. Naiad stabilizers ensure guest comfort at sea.

This vessel had only one owner, who spared no expense to maintain her in top condition. He is selling the yacht in order to move up to a larger vessel.
