Jim Elliott at Ardell sends word of a $400,000 drop in price on the 30.48m Victoria 5 (ex La Marchesa), which he has listed for sale.
Designed by Hargrave Custom Yachts and built by Taiwanese yard Kha Shing in 2002, this raised pilot house motor yacht can accommodate up to nine guests in three cabins and a library/study that doubles as a cabin with a single berth and a Pullman. Her elegant cherrywood interior by Shelley includes Hargrave's signature 'country kitchen'.
Twin Caterpillar engines provide a cruising speed of 18 knots and a top speed of around 22 knots.
Victoria 5 is now asking $3.5 million, down from $3.9 million.
