Further price cut on motor yacht Lestralaur at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Lestralaur was built in 1981 and originally launched as James Sinclair for the Canadian Fisheries Department to be used as a high speed patrol boat capable of negotiating the rough waters of the Pacific Northwest.
Renamed Lestralaur, she is 90% of the way through a conversion into a luxury expedition yacht and has been fitted with all the bells and whistles. She was lengthened and modified to accommodate a helicopter, re-powered with brand new MTU 12V 4000 main engines, and fitted with new stabilisers, bow and stern thrusters, plus many other mechanical and electrical upgrades.
She has a 5,000 nautical mile range to reach the most remote locations on the planet.
With accommodation for 10 guests, Lestralaur is now asking $5,750,000, down from $6,999,000.
