Open Day aboard superyacht Southern Cross III with Fraser
by Malcolm MacLean
Richard Earp at Fraser Yachts tells me that he'll be your host at an Open Day in the Port of Monaco aboard the 55.17m motor yacht Southern Cross III. The date is Friday, June 18th and the times are between 2.30pm and 7pm.
Southern Cross III was built by Japan's Nishii Zosen yard in 1986 to a design by Sterling Yachts and Jon Bannenberg and instantly became one of the best known and easily recognised superyachts in the world. Refitted in 2008, she's ABS classed and MCA compliant and her interior, designed to impress, has a grandeur that stuns newcomers. Accommodating up to 15 guests in a master, four spacious double suites and two additional guest cabins, her two MTU 4,600hp turbocharged diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots. The asking price is €12 million.
