Perini Navi sailing yacht Aquarius sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in steel and aluminium by famed Italian yard Perini Navi to ABS class, Aquarius was delivered in 1990 and has been upgraded and refitted several times since. An elegant interior by Colefax & Fowler accommodates up to 10 guests in a master suite, VIP suite and two twins plus two Pullman berths, all with en suite facilities. In addition, there are quarters for eight crew.
The saloon and dining area are a generous size and offer comfortable seating, a bar and an entertainment centre. However, her large aft deck is likely to prove the most popular location for guests. Here is built in upholstered seating, a bar, table and chairs offering every amenity for al fresco dining and entertaining, while a 50 inch flat screen television folds into the ceiling above the bar
She received a full refit in 2010, including the installation of a new sailing system and a hydraulically operated aft swimming platform. She now has new Formula masts and in boom furling systems for her 923 square metres of sail and deck gear includes seven Perini Navi captive winches. Furthermore, Aquarius completed her ABS 25 year survey in January 2016.
Twin 590hp MTU diesel engines give her a range of 6,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots.
Aquarius was asking $9,750,000.
