A call to Yannis Mitsopoulos at Ocean Independence in Greece brings news of yet another price cut as his central listing, the 48.85m motor yacht El Chris, comes down by €500,000.
She was built and launched in Bremen in 1960 at Lürssen, Germany, for the German Navy as a Type 140 Jaguar class Fast Attack Craft. She is constructed of wood and was named 13292 S-22 Dommel. In 1974 she was decommissioned and later sold. Between 1981 and 1983 she was completely rebuilt as a superyacht including new 1400hp Deutz engines and in 1983 she was re-launched.
She was sold again in 1985, refitted and renamed *. The 1985-1986 refit included a lengthening of 4.5m from 44.5m to 48.85m. Wooden/titanium frames were used for the hull and the superstructure above deck is built out of aluminium. In 2005 further refit work and updating was also performed. *El Chris boasts two saloons, a separate dining area, alfresco dining on the upper deck and a large sundeck. Accommodation is for 14 guests in a master suite, VIP cabin, a double and four twins and she cruises at 14 knots. The new asking price is €2.3 million.
