Fitzroy sailing superyacht Ganesha I sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Ganesha I was built in aluminium by New Zealand yard Fitzroy Yachts to Lloyds class, designed by Dubois Naval Architects. Launched in March 2006, Ganesha I was the third Dubois performance sloop constructed at Fitzroy Yachts. She has been immaculately maintained by her current owner and has earned a formidable reputation on the regatta circuit, taking first place in the cruising division at the 2012 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Sardinia.
The interior benefits from large spaces and a fresh feel due to Redman Whiteley Dixon’s use of walnut with wenge accents complemented by luxurious pale fabrics. On deck guests can relax in the shade under the covered cockpit which also provides a delightful al fresco entertaining and dining area. On the technical side, she has a 48.5 metre carbon fibre main mast from High Modulus and Reckmann hydraulic furlers for the genoa, blade sail and removable staysail. Deck gear is by Lewmar and Harken.
Comfortable accommodation is for up to 10 guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite, a VIP suite, a convertible twin/double with a Pullman berth and a further twin with a Pullman berth. All cabins have en suite facilities. Under power, a 700hp Caterpillar engine gives her a range of 3,750 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Lying in Montenegro, Ganesha I was asking €10.45 million with VAT paid.
