The 88.5m (290.4ft) ILLUSION PLUS has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure built to ABS classification by a dream team of world-class consultants including Dutch naval architects Azure, exterior designers Rainsford Saunders and interiors by Sinot Yacht Design. She was delivered by the Pride shipyard in 2018 and immediately won the Monaco Yacht Show Award for her interior design.
Her sleek design cleverly conceals a significant beam of 15.4m (50.5ft) and a vast interior volume at 3,642GT across six guest decks, which includes four lounges and two dining rooms. The entire space is illuminated by natural light flooding through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the double-height atrium linking the main and upper decks.
Substantial leisure facilities include a beauty salon, a wellness spa with sauna, a hammam and massage room and a dedicated gym.
Accommodation for her 16 guests includes two VIP suites and a noteworthy 80sqm owner’s suite located on its own deck. The private apartment features a full-beam bedroom with 180-degree panoramic windows and skylight, an office space and a private terrace forward and access to the yacht's foredeck helipad.
Outside space is equally expansive and designed for enjoyment and relaxation, with two jacuzzis, multiple al fresco dining and lounging options and a huge Ocean Lounge beach club area, aft of the tender garage for her two custom tenders. Four of the six decks are served by a guest elevator.
The shipyard worked closely with Rolls-Royce to create a diesel-electric system with Azipull thruster pods and as a result performance is both fast and ultra-efficient with a top speed of 17 knots and low-emissions cruising at 15 knots with a 5,000nm range.
We are pleased to present this vessel for sale with a new, significantly reduced, asking price that demonstrates the owner’s commitment to securing a sale within a short timeframe. She is now asking USD 79,800,000 and, with a price/GT of USD 21,911 against a 2022 average of USD 37,437, she represents exceptional value.
ILLUSION PLUS is currently available to view in Tarragona, Spain. Please contact your broker to arrange a tour, either virtual or in person.
