Chantal, originally named Chantal Ma Vie, was built in steel by US yard Nylen and delivered in 1984 with a full refit and upgrade in 2013. Her relaxing, comfortable interior is by Lou Benskey of Global Marine and her exterior was styled by James S Krogen.
A successful charter vessel, this expedition yacht has three spacious decks, a cockpit Jacuzzi and a wide range of water toys. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in five staterooms consisting of a master suite, three doubles and a twin plus two Pullman berths, all with en suite bathroom facilities. She also accommodates eight crew in four cabins.
Chantal‘s twin 650hp Cummins diesel engines underwent a full overhaul in 2014 and she has a trans-oceanic range of 5,400 nautical miles at 13 knots.
Lying in Moscow, Russia, Chantal is now down to €4.5 million.
