Currency switch on sailing superyacht Felicita West at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Built by Perini Navi in collaboration with designer Ron Holland in 2003, her long waterline and 1,800sqm of canvas propel her to speeds in excess of 16 knots. Her ultra-wide beam of 12.7 metres brings large internal volume and side decks where two people can walk side by side, a feat few motor yachts can achieve. Felicità West was the first 500-tonne aluminium sailing yacht to be MCA certified.
She comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in a master suite, two double and two twin cabins. Twin 1,400 Deutz engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
On display at the Monaco Yacht Show, Felicità West is down from €25 million to $25 million.
