by Malcolm Maclean
The 24.38 metre motor yacht Lora, listed for sale by Tucker Fallon at Bradford Marine Yacht Sales, has been sold in an in house deal.
Built in GRP by US yard Northern Marine to a design by Stephen R Seaton, Lora was delivered in 2002 as a full displacement explorer yacht and refitted in 2011. She is decorated throughout with joinery in makore wood and accommodates six guests in three cabins consisting of a main deck master suite, VIP suite and a double, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities.
The main deck saloon has a lounge area aft with an L-shaped leather settee, divided from the dining area forward by a central divider holding an aft-facing HD 37 inch television screen and a surround sound stereo system. Further forward, the dining area is separated from the galley by a breakfast counter with two stools.
The pilothouse has three Stidd helm chairs behind the instrument panels and a raised settee and table allowing guests to observe the captain at work. The flybridge has a further central helm chair along with wing controls and boasts the added attractions of a wet bar with a lounging area and a table, all sheltered by a hard top.
A single 660hp Cummins diesel engine gives her a range of 4,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots and she is fitted with Trac digital fin zero speed stabilisers for added comfort at sea and in port.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Lora was asking $1,899,000.
