Following a price reduction in excess of USD 1,000,000, inspections and offers are keenly invited for the 48.2m (158.1ft) MORNING GLORY.
She is an impressive ketch-rigged auxiliary sailing yacht delivered by renowned Italian yard Perini Navi in 1993 and fastidiously maintained and upgraded ever since. She had a complete refit in 2010, including a mechanical overhaul, new main engines, generators and a full repaint. Now, with the summer season just around the corner, the yacht is in step-aboard-and-sail-away condition.
As a motor yacht that sails, she offers both the comfort and convenience of the former and the efficiency and excitement of the latter.
She has generous and versatile deck spaces. Her flybridge has a bimini awning covering the helm station and there is an L-shaped lounge to port and a sofa to starboard, all with panoramic views. A spiral staircase around the mizzen mast leads down to the main deck.
Steps lead up to side decks port and starboard leading to the expansive foredeck where the tenders are stored on passage.
Aft of the dining table is a semi-circle of seating around an oval table and steps lead up either side to a raised sun lounge.
The spacious main saloon features U-shaped seating facing a working marble fireplace forward.
A passage to starboard leads to the forward saloon with a formal dining area to port and a fully equipped sit-up bar and games table to starboard.
MORNING GLORY can accommodate eight guests in four luxurious suites. A full beam owner's suite on the lower deck aft has a private study along with separate his and her bathrooms. Two double cabins and two twin cabins complete the guest accommodation and she also sleep up to eight crew.
She has 990sqm (10,645sqft) of easily handled sail area delivering comfort and performance, improved by her centreboard, which gives her a maximum draft of 7.7m (25.7ft) when down, reducing to 3.3m (10.8ft) to allow access to many more lagoons and ports off the beaten path. When not sailing, twin 850hp MAN diesel engines give her a top speed of 14.5 knots and a transoceanic range of 4,900nm at 10 knots.
The owner is very keen to transact soon and all genuine offers will be seriously considered. MORNING GLORY is lying in Viareggio where inspection is strongly encouraged to appreciate the quality, volume and condition of this yacht. She is waiting to transform your summer season.
