Benetti's superyacht Allegro sold by Fraser
by Malcolm MacLean
Hearing that the 36.6m Benetti Classic 120 superyacht Allegro has been sold, I call her listing agent, Jeff Partin in the Fort Lauderdale office of Fraser Yachts, who confirms that the father and son team of Jose Arana Junior and Senior completed the deal "a couple of weeks ago." But, the recent Fort Lauderdale Boat Show event meant that Jeff was too busy to give me the news.
Delivered in 2008, the superyacht's ABS classed, MCA compliant and equipped with zero speed stabilisers: three essential requirements, according to Jeff, for good resale value, even if the yacht isn't aimed at the charter market. But, aimed there she certainly is, as she joins the Fraser Yachts charter fleet under her new name of Kai.Allegro accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms and was asking $12.575 million.
