44 Metre Mengi-Yay Motor Yacht Virtus Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 44 metre motor yacht Virtus, jointly listed for sale by David Legrand at Fraser with Onboard Yachting, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in steel and aluminium by Turkish yard Mengi-Yay to a design by VYD, Virtus was delivered in 2019. Formerly known as Hull NB96, she features accommodation for up to ten guests split between a master suite and four further cabins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to eight people.
She boasts plentiful deck spaces, including a foredeck seating and sunbathing area. The superyacht sundeck is split between a spa pool and an area for sun loungers back aft, while the sheltered cockpit includes an aft-facing wrap of seating for great views out to sea.
Power comes from a pair of 1,450hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots, Virtus boasts an impressive range thanks to a total fuel capacity of 51,000 litres.
Her broker, David Legrand, comments: “Designed with a contemporary and sophisticated approach, her floor to ceiling windows offer a seamless sense of openness onto the outside world.”
Virtus was asking €17,900,000.
