by Malcolm MacLean
The 25 metre motor yacht Jesty, listed for sale by Rino di Maggio at Self Concept in Italy, has had a €650,000 price reduction, nearly halving her asking price.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti to RINA class, Jesty was delivered in 1977 with a full refit in 2007 and her current owner authorised a further refit in 2010/2013. This involved having her entire engine room rebuilt, with new generators, new pumps and all systems renewed or upgraded including the installation of larger fuel and water tanks.
Accommodation on this yacht for sale is for up to nine guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite with a king sized bed, a double and two twin cabins, one with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for six crew
The main saloon is decorated in a warm classic style with overstuffed sofas, large windows allowing the daylight to stream in, and still has the original wooden joinery in perfect condition. Formal dining is available on the port side of the saloon with a walnut table for eight guests while aft is a fully equipped galley with a mess table for six crew.
The expansive aft deck, sheltered by the overhang of the sun deck, offers al fresco entertaining and dining around a table seating 10 guests. The sun deck is large and offers loungers and sun pads forward while the aft area is reserved for the tender and toys.
Lying in Viareggio, Italy, Jesty is down from €1,350,000 to €700,000.
