Built in aluminium by Italian yard Arzana Navi to a design by Bill Tripp, she is RINA classed and was delivered in 2013 as a flybridge sailing sloop. Nativa went on to become a finalist at the 2014 World Superyacht Awards. Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins including a full beam master suite, two VIP suites and two twins, one doubling up as a gymnasium with two Pullman berths, and all cabins have full en suite shower facilities.
Her massive glazed superstructure offers guests a perfect living area on the main deck in a comfortable saloon with ample seating and flooded with light coming in from all directions, quite different from the usual layout of a sailing yacht. Apparently, this is in response to an in-depth market analysis which showed that a certain segment of owners want the pleasure of performance sailing yachts combined with the comfort and layout of a motor yacht.
A massive aft deck has an impressive spa tub and space for a large table seating 10 guests for al fresco dining. Under power, an 800hp MAN engine gives her a range of 2,400 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots.
Her brokers at Fraser Yachts comment: “Her aluminium construction, superb hull lines and powerful rig enable Nativa to reach unprecedented speeds in light winds. She is a head turner at sea and in port and is the best priced yacht in its category on today’s market.”
Lying at anchor off the Monaco Yacht Show, Nativa is asking €15.9 million.
