44m classic motor yacht Rena joins the market

22 September 2023 • Written by Gabrielle Lazaridis

The 44.2-metre classic motor yacht Rena has been listed for sale with Brendan Roney of BR Marine Group, after 15 years with her current owner. 

Delivered by Australian yard NQEA in 1989, Rena was conceived as a yacht that "could do everything", including a good turn of speed for coastal cruising without needing to compromise her long range and stability for transatlantic passages. Her impressive capabilities are owed to legendary US naval architect Jack Hargrave, who was also responsible for designing the custom tri-deck's interior and exterior profiles. 

Lying in Fort Lauderdale, US, Rena's asking price is upon application

A previous owner added 4.5 metres to Rena's LOA in 1994, with the yacht undergoing regular maintenance in the years since. Most recently, she received a new stabiliser system and Starlink connectivity, while a complete rebuild of the yacht's main engines and transmission is scheduled for October 2023.

The main deck saloon offers ample room for socialising with a U-shaped sofa configuration facing another row of couch seating directly opposite. Further forward lies a formal dining table for ten, separated by a wooden partition as a way of defining each individual space.

Pops of navy blue furnishings decorated with embroidered ocean insignia carry a nautical theme throughout the yacht's interior, connecting all of the various living spaces. Accommodations are for 14 guests within five staterooms, including a full-beam master suite and a VIP cabin on the main deck.

Outside, the 334GT yacht for sale boasts expansive deck spaces, which also offer picturesque views from the main deck aft, bridge deck aft and sundeck. Other highlights include an outdoor gym, multiple tanning locations and a healthy inventory of water toys, including two Yamaha WaveRunners and a catamaran landing tender.

Powered by twin 1,500hp Caterpillar engines, Rena can reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles when pared back to 10 knots. She also benefits from a draught of 2.3 metres, allowing her to access most shallow anchorages and marinas.

Lying in Fort Lauderdale, in the US, Rena's asking price is upon application.
