Sunseeker motor yacht Va Va Vroom sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.4 metre motor yacht Va Va Vroom, listed for sale by Jonathan Browne at Ocean Independence, has been sold with Marine Yachting Monaco introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by UK yard Sunseeker International to a design by Don Shead, she was delivered in 2006 as a Predator 82 model and has had the same owner since new until now. An interior in black American walnut with suede leather highlights accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite shower facilities. In addition, there are quarters for two crew in one cabin.
The main deck saloon has cream leather settees to port and starboard, a bar and an entertainment centre including a Sharp satellite television screen and a Bose Lifestyle stereo surround sound system. The large aft cockpit has an al fresco seating and dining area to starboard on wicker chairs and built in upholstered L-shaped seating while steps lead down to a wide swimming platform.
She has been sparingly used, logging only 540 hours so far. A fast planing hull and twin 2,400hp MTU diesel engines linked to Arneson surface drive propellers power her to speeds of up 48 knots.
Lying in Antibes, France, Va Va Vroom was asking €895,000 with VAT paid.
