Edmiston's superyacht fleet at Monaco to include Triple Seven and Lady Christina
by Malcolm MacLean
Rory Trahair at Edmiston & Company tells me that their display of yachts at the forthcoming Monaco Yacht Show is 50% larger than before.
The list is headed by the mighty 68m motor yacht Triple Seven. Delivered in 2006 by Germany’s Nobiskrug yard, this superyacht has had significant upgrades made by her current owner, including a new audio-visual system featuring a 108? plasma screen. Triple Seven can be sold with her berth and is asking €54,750,000.
Hard on her heels comes the 62.3m Lady Christina, a magnificent yacht built by Oceanco in 2005. She offers vast deck space as well as a lavish interior decorated in silk and marble. She can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins. The master suite is a real gem. Situated forward, it's host to a private saloon and offers stunning views through arched windows. The split-level bathroom is nothing short of spectacular with a sunken spa bath and ornate marble and gold details. Lady Christina is asking €39,500,000.
Then there’s a joint listing with Merle Wood & Associates, the 62.33m Fortunato. Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, Fortunato was custom built in 2000 by Feadship’s Royal Van Lent yard to a design by naval architect De Voogt. This superyacht has a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. She is fitted with a modern Koop stabilization system that reduces roll motion effect, resulting in a smoother cruising experience. Up to 14 guests can be accommodated in a master suite and six double staterooms. Power comes from two 2000hp Caterpillar diesel engines, which provide a top speed of 17 knots and a range of 5,800 nautical miles at 13 knots. Subject to a multi-million dollar refit in 2011, Fortunato had a recent price reduction and is now asking $54,000,000.
Another Feadship is the 49.13 motor yacht Marion Queen, designed by De Voogt Naval Architects and built to Lloyds class by the Van Lent yard in 1990. Last refitted in 2008, she accommodates 12 guests in a main deck master suite, VIP stateroom, two doubles and one twin cabin plus two Pullman berths. Marion Queen was drydocked in March 2011 for her annual Lloyds survey and received full approval. Her asking price is €11,900,000.
Also on display is the 47.5m motor yacht Ellix Too, built by ISA to a design by Walter Franchini for her present owner and delivered in 2005. She has recently completed a major refit including a complete repaint of her topsides in flag blue, superstructure in oyster white, new generators and more. Lloyds classed and MCA compliant for charter accommodating 12 guests, Ellix Too is ready for her new owner for immediate cruising, asking €14,950,000.
And here’s a touch of real class in the shape of the 42.06m Istros. Built by Amsterdamsche Scheepwerf in 1954 to a design by De Vries Lentsch, she accommodates nine guests in five staterooms. Istros is arguably the best original classic motor yacht afloat today. She was the winner of the grand prize for the best restored vessel at the Monaco Yacht Club Prada Classic Yacht Show in 2001 and her multi-million pound refit and refurbishment was finally completed in 2002. Today Istros offers a unique combination of classical elegance and modern creature comforts. While her restoration ensures that guests can experience style from a bygone era, they can also enjoy up-to-date facilities designed to guarantee the highest levels of comfort and luxury. Her asking price is €5,950,000.
Finally, last but definitely not least is the 36.5m Izumi. Delivered in 2008, she’s the sixth PJ120 Sportyacht by renowned American builder Palmer Johnson. From her stunning crystal silver metallic paint to her recognizable sweeping lines Izumi is an excellent example of the now popular PJ 120 model that started the whole PJ Sportyacht Series. This superyacht’s striking interior has been designed by Nuvolari Lenard and is a combination of lacewood highlighted with high-gloss ebony, wenge flooring and Crema Marfil marble accents. Classed both Lloyds and MCA, Izumi is built to handle rough seas and take guests where they want to go in the utmost comfort. Izumi is in immaculate condition and asking €9,900,000.
