Benetti motor yacht Mistress now for sale at Sunseeker Poole
by Malcolm MacLean
The 46.1 metre motor yacht Mistress has changed central agencies and is now listed for sale by Matthew Palmer at Sunseeker Poole.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti, she was delivered in 1991 as Shamwari, the first of the yard’s true custom superyachts. A lavish interior by Francois Zuretti accommodates 11 guests in six cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite with two separate bathrooms, while below there are four doubles and a single cabin, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en-suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon of this yacht for sale is suitably impressive with large overstuffed sofas upholstered in gold fabric, coffee tables, a bar and an entertainment centre. Up one deck, the upper saloon has U-shaped seating, a games table, bar with three stools and an entertainment centre including a 55-inch Sony television.
Outdoor spaces are extensive and include a large aft deck with seating and a table for al fresco dining, while the upper deck has outdoor dining for eight around a teak table. The sun deck offers even more relaxation space, with seating, sun pads and a Jacuzzi. Last refitted from April 2013 to August 2014, twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines give Mistress a cruising range of 2,700 nautical miles at 10.5 knots and she is fitted with zero-speed stabilisers.
Lying in Italy, Mistress is asking €5.2 million with tax paid.
