The 54.7m (179.4ft) expedition yacht LATITUDE is a former commercial vessel, built in steel to Bureau Veritas classification and originally delivered in 1973 by the German shipyard Hitzler Schiffswerft. She was converted into an expedition yacht between 2003-06 and completed a 24-month refit in June 2020, which included extensive upgrades and all-new toys. Since then she has been a popular charter yacht exploring the islands of French Polynesia. With a 10,000nm range at a cruising speed of eight knots, she has the capability to operate anywhere in the world.
Her commercial origins mean that she has huge amounts of versatile deck space. Her flybridge deck offers commanding views from its three tiered teak decks. Currently the central deck spaces are used for yoga and sun lounging, down a few steps there is gym equipment to port and a meditation space to starboard. The aft facing owner's suite is on the bridge deck, overlooking the open air dining and huge pool on the forecastle deck with steps leading down to the helipad and toy storage area, complete with launch crane, and there is a swim platform aft.
Inside on the forecastle deck is the Great Room, a large space with formal dining, a fully equipped sit-up bar and a dayhead forward, and two lounging areas aft, one with a 50in TV for movie nights. Below on the main deck are three double cabins and two twin cabins forward and there is a sauna, shower, dayhead and a large fishing tackle room aft.
LATITUDE is asking USD 17,500,000 and available to view in Papeete, French Polynesia, remotely or in person. Yachts of this capability are few and far between and this one comes with a strong charter following.
