Converted tug Vervece listed for sale
by Sophia Heath
Originally built by Italian yard Benetti in 1964 she was transformed into a luxury yacht by Palumbo in 2013. When she was relaunched by Palumbo the yard described her as “virtually a new build”. Parts of her hull well were changed, a new superstructure built and the engine room was rebuilt.
She is now powered by twin 1,000hp (746kW) Cummins engines and has a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at this speed.
Her new modern interior has been designed to provide a “beach house” atmosphere and she offers accommodation for eight guests in four cabins — a master room, VIP stateroom and two twins. All the rooms are en suite and have 32 inch satellite televisions. An extra guest can also be accommodated with a Pullman and she has three cabins for crew.
Her interior features a spacious saloon, modern, bright galley and rustic dining table. She also has a cosy upper lounge which would be ideal either for those looking for a quiet space during the daytime or for drinks in the evening.
Vervece's design means that she offers a huge amount of space across her three decks. Her extensive deck spaces have made her a popular event charter yacht since her transformation as she is able to accommodate up to 100 guests at quay.
Vervece is asking €3,690,000.
