The 31m (101.7ft) ESTEL is a performance yacht constructed in composite to Bureau Veritas classification and delivered by Italian shipyard Leopard Yachts in 2005. Her naval architecture and interior design are by Overmarine, Andrea Bacigalupo penned her exteriors and she received a full machinery refit in 2021.
She operates commercially and will continue to be a sought-after charter yacht offering her new owner a potential revenue stream. Conveniently located in the South of France, ESTEL is a perfect opportunity for those looking to be afloat this summer. The current owner is keen to secure a quick sale.
Three 1,800hp MTU diesel engines power triple jet drives giving her an exhilarating top speed of 40 knots and an impressive cruising speed of 30 knots. Combined with her 1.2m (3.9ft) draft, this performance makes her ideally suited to port and island hopping along the Riviera coast and Balearics.
Walkaround sidedecks connect her two multi-person sunpads, one on the foredeck and another on the main deck aft. There is open-air dining partially shaded by the overhang and steps lead down to the swim platform and the garage for her 4m (13.1ft) Avon Seasport jet tender, Sea-Doo, SeaBobs and SUPs. Both tender and toys are launched and recovered using the passerelle.
Full-height sliding glass doors open from the main deck aft into the saloon, which has sofa seating and tables either side and a sweep of glazing either side running the length of the saloon. Forward is a sit-up bar beneath four skylights to add atmosphere, and ahead of that is the bridge with three helm seats.
ESTEL welcomes up to nine guests in four suites, all on the lower deck. The owner’s suite is full beam with sofa seating to port and a vanity table to starboard next to a generous wardrobe. The en suite has his-and-hers basins and a shower room. There is a full-beam VIP double suite in the bow, a double cabin and a twin cabin with an additional berth, all en suite. She also sleeps up to four crew.
