$1.2 million price drop on superyacht Lestralaur at N&J
by Malcolm MacLean
News of another price reduction arrives over the transom as Gregg Morton at Northrop & Johnson sends word of a $1.2 million drop on the 42.67m motor yacht Lestralaur.
Lestralaur was built in 1981 and originally launched as the James Sinclair for the Canadian Fisheries Department to be used as a high speed patrol boat capable of negotiating the rough waters of the Pacific Northwest.
Re-christened as Lestralaur and 90% of the conversion into a luxury expedition yacht complete, she’s been fitted with all the bells and whistles. She was lengthened, re-powered with brand new MTU 12V 4000 main engines, and fitted with new stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, plus many other mechanical and electrical upgrades.
Lestralaur was also modified to accommodate a helicopter. She has a 5,000 nautical mile range to reach the farthest, most remote locations on the planet.
With accommodation for 10 guests, Lestralaur is now asking $8.8 million.
