Commissioned by a very experienced, highly discerning owner, the 80m (262.5ft) Y701 oozes ShowBoats award-winning class and ticks every box for those searching for a yacht of immaculate pedigree that has it all.
She has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure built to Lloyd's classification and MCA compliance by Dutch heavyweight Oceanco. Delivered in 2007, her elegantly angular exterior, by Italian studio Nuvolari & Lenard, conceals a considerable internal volume of 2,310GT designed by Paris-based stylist Alberto Pinto. As a beloved family yacht, she has been meticulously maintained and upgraded and presents in wonderful condition.
Expansive deck spaces include a sun deck with glass-backed pool and sunpads forward, dayhead with shower, skylights over the elevator serving bridge to lower decks and lounge seating aft. The bridge deck aft is a versatile space where there is a sun lounge with chef station and sit-up bar as well as open-air dining shaded by the overhang. Walkaround sidedecks enhance guests' connection with their surroundings.
The upper deck has a VIP cabin, with en suite. A central staircase runs to the main deck aft where internal steps either side lead down to the swim platform, shower, dayhead and dressing room. The main deck is also walkaround and guests moving forward pass the boat deck where two 9.5m (31.2ft) tenders are launched on horizontal davits. There is also a full-beam tender and toy garage aft on the lower deck.
The bridge deck sky lounge has light wood panelling with marquetry and relaxed sofa seating. The upper deck is an entertainment space with convivial lounge seating and a piano in the lounge and a circular dining table for 20 guests with stunning views through a semi-circle of sliding glass doors, opening onto the upper deck aft.
On the main deck there is a wellness spa featuring a gym with spectacular views aft through a semi-circle of sliding glass doors, buffet and bar, medical room, beauty salon, massage room and dayhead. An enormous main saloon features a variety of seating areas and doubles as a cinema with drop-down projector.
She welcomes up to 18 guests in nine suites. The owner's suite takes up almost half of the upper deck's interior. It features a private owner's lounge with office, his-and-hers bathroom around a huge central bath, very large walk-in wardrobe and a bedroom with access to a Portuguese bridge and private terrace with two jacuzzis. The main deck has three VIP suites and two twin suites, and there are a further two double suites on the lower deck forward of the lobby, which has its own sea terrace. She also sleeps 22 crew.
Twin 4,860hp MTU diesel engines give her a top speed of 20 knots, a cruising speed of 18 knots and a transatlantic range of 6,000nm at her passage speed of 14 knots. Retractable Rolls-Royce stabilisers provide comfort at anchor and underway.
