Feadship motor yacht Oncle Paul for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 33.53 metre motor yacht Oncle Paul has been listed for sale by Fergus Torrance at Torrance Yachts.
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Feadship to a design by De Voogt, she was delivered in 1973 as a long range gentleman’s cruising yacht. Although she has been upgraded many times, this yacht for sale still retains her original rich teak paneling throughout.
Accommodation is for up to 10 guests in a master suite, VIP suite and two twin cabins, each with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for six crew in three cabins and a crew mess.
The saloon is elegant with an olde world décor befitting a classic yacht of her age. She has comfortable settees and armchairs in front of an entertainment centre including a 50 inch Sony plasma television screen and a Bose stereo surround sound system. A formal dining area is forward seating eight guests and the owner’s private office is adjacent.
An impressive aft deck offers protection from the wind and has al fresco dining for 10 guests at a large table and chairs along with a full bar. Steps lead down to a full width swimming platform. Up on the sun deck is ample seating, tables and an aft Bimini top providing welcome shade from the sun.
Twin 460 Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 10 knots and a range of 2,500 nautical miles. She also benefits from zero speed stabilizers to eliminate roll motion at sea and in port.
Lying in Corfu, Greece, Oncle Paul is asking €3.5 million.
