Classic sailing superyacht Doriana for sale at Van der Vliet
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in teak by Denmark's Fredriksund yard in 1930, she was privately owned until, as is often the case with these classics, she fell into disrepair. She was rescued and almost entirely rebuilt in 2003/2004 at Germany's Navcon shipyard to DNV class with a reconstruction of her interior design by British naval architect Donald Starkey. All her oak frames were checked and mostly replaced. Further, everything technical was removed, scrapped and replaced, including the engine, generators, electrical equipment and all plumbing and wiring.
Her new superstructure in quarter-sawn teak consists of a charthouse, cockpit and skylights and five guest staterooms were built and installed during the rebuild. The interior is now in high gloss mahogany and has a large saloon with a corner bar and a library and here's a nice extra - at the touch of a button the library converts into a double en suite cabin.
A finalist in the refit category of the 2006 World Superyacht Awards, Doriana is asking €2,650,000.
