Benetti motor yacht Saladus sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 40.2 metre motor yacht Saladus, listed for sale by Konstantin Kolpakov at Arcon Yachts in Monaco, has been sold in-house.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Benetti to a design by Stefano Righini, Saladus was launched in April 2014 as the third hull in the yard’s Benetti Classic Supreme series and built to RINA class. An interior by Francois Zuretti using high quality marbles, exotic woods and fine leathers accommodates 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a vast master suite on the main deck with an extending sea balcony and a private office, two identical VIP suites below and two twins, all with entertainment systems and full en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, a cabin on the upper deck has a sofa converting to a double berth.
The saloon incorporates full length windows flooding the area with light and a special feature here is that, at the press of a button, the entire port side slides out to create a large al fresco sea balcony with a table and chairs for extraordinary views while under way.
Exterior decks are no less impressive with two separate sunbathing and Jacuzzi areas on the sun deck and in the bow section of the upper deck. This section also has a GRP hard top with an electronically adjusted awning and adjustable sun umbrellas. Up in the sky lounge, there are two full height windows, relaxation areas and a games table and this multi-functional area also serves as a sophisticated media room to keep guests entertained in the evenings.
Twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 1,450hp diesel engines give Saladus a cruising speed of 14.5 knots and a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Saladus was asking €15.8 million and is now renamed Hemabejo.
