56m sailing yacht Parsifal IV for sale at Camper & Nicholsons
by Malcolm MacLean
Delivered in 2007 as the fourth 56 metre to be launched by Perini Navi, Parsifal IV may share the qualities and attributes of her sisters, but she has her own character and elegant innovations, among them a hydraulically opening transom, which contains a structural staircase descending to a wide bathing platform, a portside platform and some differences in layout including a larger, athwartships dining room forward of the saloon and a corridor allowing crew to move from the aft cockpit to the crew quarters without impinging on guest privacy.
She can accommodate up to 12 guests in five well-appointed staterooms, including a full-beam master suite, with room for nine crew members.
Her richly detailed and flawlessly executed Art Deco interior – accomplished by Perini Navi’s own designer Bernardo Chichi – won Best Sailing Yacht Interior at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.
With twin 1,400hp Caterpillar engines delivering a cruising speed of 14 knots, Parsifal IV is asking €26.5 million.
