Classic Feadship superyacht Branzino sold
by Philip Reynolds
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Feadship to a design by Jon Bannenberg, she was delivered in 1981. She was sold in spring 2014 and the then new owner wasted no time in getting her ready for the summer season, instigating a short but effective refit in Italy. A more extensive and detailed refit was carried out in the winter of 2014/2015.
Following these refits, Branzino now boasts vintage Bannenberg exterior lines with a warm and inviting interior, fully refitted by H2 Yacht Design. She has a flexible accommodation layout for 12 to 14 guests with the owner’s suite located forward on the main deck, a VIP suite on the bridge deck and a further four cabins, arranged as two doubles and two twins - each with an additional Pullman berth - on the lower deck. There is room for a crew of 10.
In 2012, Branzino was fully repainted and had all her teak decking replaced. Always operated privately, the yacht has been maintained and run to the highest standards with consistent expenditure throughout her lifespan. Built to Lloyd’s classification, the yacht passed her 35 year Lloyd’s survey this year. Her twin 935hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
The asking price for Branzino was €3.8 million.
