Bruce Brakenhoff at Perini Navi USA tells me there's a €2.45 million price cut on his listing for sale, the 45.26 metre sailing yacht Helios.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian superyacht yard Perini Navi to a design by Ron Holland and ABS classed, Helios was launched in 2007. She is a great combination of a cruising yacht with excellent sailing performance and her versatile accommodation offers room for eight guests in four staterooms. These consist of a master suite, a VIP stateroom and two twins that can convert into doubles and all have en suite bathroom facilities.
The interior of this superyacht is a pure classic, mainly fashioned from mahogany and mahogany briar. All this with a special effort by Joe Smullin, one of the world’s premier acoustical engineers, makes Helios extremely quiet under all conditions.
Her large flybridge has a helm station forward and a comfortable sunbathing area aft while, under power, a single 1,100 Caterpillar engine gives her a maximum speed of 13 knots and a range of 4,100 nautical miles.
MCA compliant, Helios is down from €14,350,000 to €11,900,000.
