Globe Regal sells Picchiotti superyacht Piano Bar with IYC
by Malcolm MacLean
News just in from Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection that he's closed on his listing for sale, the 47.85 metre motor yacht Piano Bar, with Globe Regal Yachting representing the buyer.
Piano Bar was built by Italian superyacht yard Picchiotti and delivered in 1982. She was re-launched after an extensive two-year refit and refurbishment programme in 2005 and now features modernised accommodation, updated electronics and new air conditioning.
The yacht's name is derived from the upper deck piano bar, an air-conditioned oasis away from the heat of the day. With her two tenders launched, the huge aft deck becomes a major open space for large-scale functions and parties. The pool deck features a barbecue and wet bar, comfortable sun lounging area and two seating areas for al fresco entertaining.
The interior of Piano Bar has been professionally redecorated during her refit, bringing a de luxe feel to all areas. Six staterooms accommodate 12 guests in well-appointed comfort. The layout is configured as a master suite, two double staterooms, two twin cabins and the study on the main deck forward can be converted to provide a further twin guest stateroom. All staterooms have en suite bathrooms with fine marble fittings.
Twin Caterpillar diesel engines give Piano Bar a cruising speed of 12 knots and a maximum speed of 15 knots. She was asking $3.4 million.
