$2.45M Price Drop on Cornelissen Motor Yacht Va Bene
by Malcolm Maclean
The 46.51 metre motor yacht Va Bene, listed for sale by Burgess, has seen a price reduction of $2,450,000.
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Kees Cornelissen to a design by The A Group, Va Bene was delivered in 1992 with many upgrades since. Her current owner purchased the yacht in 2005 and carried out a major refit in 2007/2008 at Pendennis Shipyard in Cornwall. The interior redesign by H2 has given the yacht a modern, stylish interior resulting in her being a finalist for the 'Best Refitted Yacht' award at the World Superyacht Awards 2009.
Accommodation is for up to 14 guests in six cabins on this yacht for sale. The full beam master suite on the main deck has a large private study which converts to a children's cabin with a pullman berth and sofa. The expansive VIP suite features a huge bathroom and a seating area, while a twin cabin has a pullman berth, making it popular for children's sleepovers, and there are a further three good-sized double cabins on the lower deck.
The large main saloon has a timeless interior design, with pale, limed wood emphasising the sense of space and abundance of natural light. With a separate dining room and a large al fresco dining area on the aft deck, Va Bene offers a choice of areas to enjoy dining in both casual and formal settings.
Her top speed is 18 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles at 13 knots with power coming from two 1,780hp Caterpillar 3512-TA diesel engines.
On display at the forthcoming Palma Superyacht Show, Va Bene is now asking $7,500,000.
