72M VSY superyacht Stella Maris sold
by Malcolm Maclean
She features a somewhat innovative layout with internal decks split on different levels creating a 2.7m ceiling height in places and an impressive volume more typical of larger vessels. The owner's area takes up the entire upper deck, while guest accommodation is on the main deck. Here 12 guests are accommodated in six cabins consisting of four double suites and two twin cabins, all with nearly identical layouts and all furnished with entertainment systems and en suite bathroom facilities.
The interior design is the work of Michela Reverberi who has created a clean, refined atmosphere using natural stones, high quality fabrics and rare woods.
Side garage doors open out to serve as beaches which remain horizontal despite waves or rolling thanks to a sophisticated balancing system. Stella Maris is also the only yacht of her size to have a fully certified helipad. Additionally, the helideck and adjacent sun deck can host a dinner for 100 guests.
Twin Caterpillar 3516B engines produce a top speed of 17 knots, while at 12 knots, the yacht's range is 5,500 nautical miles. Quantum XT Zero Speed stabilisers allow the yacht to avoid using the anchor in environmentally sensitive zones.
Lying in Imperia, Italy, Stella Maris was asking €75 million.
