Benetti superyacht Pokrov sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Pokrov was built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti to RINA class with delivery in 1974 and was carefully refitted and restored to an exceptional level by her present owner between 2007 and 2008. Accommodation is for up to 10 guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite with a king sized bed, a double and two twins, all with en suite facilities.
The main saloon is classic in style, blending the original fitted joinery – in perfect condition – with modern sofas and a centrepiece glass and bronze coffee table. Traditional lighting works well with newly installed soft LED overhead fittings while large windows allow for the maximum of natural light. Forward is a formal dining room with an extendable walnut table comfortably seating eight guests.
The main aft deck offers an al fresco dining and relaxation area with a large table for 10 guests and comfortable seating. Access to the sun deck is directly through the bridge and there is a full helm station. Aft of this is a dining table for eight with a retractable sun awning. Twin 650hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a range of 1,000 nautical miles.
Pokrov was asking €1.3 million and will be renamed Libertus.
