42 metre Sanlorenzo motor yacht Moka sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Designed by Francesco Paszkowski, Moka was built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2015 as the yard’s first 460Exp model, with 460 referring to her gross tonnage. She went on to prove her mettle by completing the 5,600 nautical mile maiden voyage from Viareggio to Florida at an average speed of 12.5 knots. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite, two VIP suites and three twins, all with entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. Four additional cabins sleep seven crew.
The 460Exp is classified as “Green Plus” by RINA and is able to remain anchored for long periods of time without having to make use of generators — thus diminishing emissions, vibration and noise.
At anchor, the large teak deck at the stern becomes a large recreational area, where the owners and guests can sunbathe, enjoy the sea, or swim against the current in the large infinity pool. The stern area also offers a complete beach club, with a bar, storage and a dive space.
Twin Caterpillar C32 Acert engines give her a top speed of 16 knots and 52,000 litre fuel tanks mean that she has a cruising range of over 4,000 miles at 11 knots.
Moka was asking €17,500,000.
