Azimut motor yacht Libro d’Oro sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24.3 metre motor yacht Libro d’Oro, listed for sale by Philip Bell at Northrop & Johnson, has been sold with Reichel Pugh introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Azimut to a design by Stefano Righini, Libro d’Oro was delivered in 2003 as one of the yard’s Carat series. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite with a custom office, a VIP suite, a double to port and a twin to starboard, all with flat screen television receivers and en suite bathroom facilities.
The large aft deck features teak decking, a large varnished teak table with six comfortable chairs and built-in storage cabinets. From here guests can access the flybridge via the illuminated stairwell, down to the swim platform and jet ski/storage enclosures, or into the saloon through glass sliding doors.
The elegant open plan main saloon and dining area features two sofas and a large reading chair with an ottoman in custom fabrics, bookshelves and a 42 inch flat screen LED television on a concealed electric lift, all in rich cherry wood veneers. Natural lighting floods this area through the aft sliding glass doors and large windows to port and starboard.
Forward of the lounge area is a large oval teak dining table with seating for eight. The natural toned marble floor with custom granite inserts complements the high gloss cherry wood bulkhead separation to the galley, which is fully equipped with upgraded stainless steel appliances.
The spacious flybridge has ample room and plenty of seating for al fresco dining centered around an exterior dining table. A heavy duty custom outfitted Bimini top provides protection from the sun or poor weather and there is also a wet bar, outdoor grill and fridge. Twin 1,420hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 27 knots.
Libro d’Oro was asking $895,000.
