YDL Yachting sells expedition yacht Capella C with Fraser Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel as a pilot vessel by Holland’s Scheepsbouwerft Pot yard, she was delivered to the Dutch Navy in 1968 and was converted into a luxury yacht in 1985. Last refitted in 2008 and now Lloyds classed, Capella C sleeps 22 guests in 12 staterooms with 17 crew. This classic superyacht features a private owner's suite including a lounge, children’s quarters, dining area and huge deck spaces for al fresco relaxation and entertainment. She has a proven cruising record of two circumnavigations and triple 600hp Deutz diesel-electric engines give her a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 11.5 knots.
Yves di Lena says, 'I'm very proud of this deal. I introduced the buyer to this yacht last September and it's the first one he's ever owned. He's very happy with her and will use her as a family yacht – probably under the same name.'
Capella C was asking $4,990,000.
