Alastair Shove at Ancasta Yachts tells me he's sold the 27.4 metre sportfish motor yacht Satu listed for sale by Clifford Allenby at Allenby & Associates.
Satu was built in composite by New Zealand superyacht yard Yachting Developments to a design by Ullberg Yacht Design & Engineering and launched in December 2012. An interior design by Robinson Marine features Japanese ash wood joinery and wenge wood floors in an interior that accommodates six guests in a master, double and twin cabins, plus accommodation for crew members.
Powered by twin 2,400hp MTU 16V 2000 CR engines – housed in a Van Cappellen-designed engine room – Satu can race to the prime fishing grounds in no time, topping out at 33 knots and cruising at 30 knots. She also boasts a 2,600 nautical mile range and is designed to allow her owner to be self sufficient for many months on end.
Fully outfitted for fishing, Satu carries a custom Bausch American full tuna tower with a buggy style hardtop, and she was asking $8,995,000.
