Holland Jachtbouw motor yacht Ninkasi for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
Sold in June 2015, the 42.29 metre motor yacht Calliope is back on the market, renamed Ninkasi and listed for sale by Jeff Partin at Superyacht Sales and Charter.
A Lloyd's-classed tri-deck motor yacht, Ninkasi was built in aluminium by Dutch yard Holland Jachtbouw to a design by Langan Design Associates and delivered in 2010. MCA compliant, her interior by Rhoades Young accommodates 10 guests in five cabins. The master suite is on the main deck and there are a further four cabins below, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
Rhoades Young developed a classic ambiance for the interior, incorporating French Provencal finishes with elegant curves and flowing lines using weathered limed oak wood on the lower and main deck, changing to a more relaxed and nautical teak wood throughout the upper bridge deck. Classically designed symmetrical formality defines the main deck areas in the saloon and dining area and forward into the owner’s suite. A notable feature is a central spiral marble staircase, providing access to all three decks.
The main saloon is an elegant and comfortable room with limed oak panelling and a subtle Asian decor motif. The floors are carpeted over hardwood flooring with the carpet being removable to allow for entertaining. Symmetrical seating has sofas on either side and four easy chairs, while teak French style double doors open to the aft deck. Large windows port and starboard make the saloon bright and airy. Twin 1,930hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and a maximum range of 1,954 nautical miles.
Currently lying in St Maarten, Ninkasi is asking $17,995,000.
