47 metre Feadship motor yacht Strangelove sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Feadship to a design by Arthur Defever with naval architecture by De Voogt, Strangelove was delivered in 1982. A thorough refit in 2014 gave her a luxurious interior by Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi accommodating 12 guests in six cabins comprising a main deck master suite, VIP suite, a double and three twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep 12 members of staff.
Her interior is light and colourful creating a relaxing atmosphere, while clean, open deck spaces offer elegant areas for outdoor dining and relaxation.
The main saloon and dining area are open plan and have a teak interior in excellent condition with a lovely rich colour. With a beam of 25 feet, she has a spacious living area and a recessed flatscreen television on the starboard side allows for relaxed viewing. Most of the furniture here is loose and was replaced during the 2014 refit, when the overheads were also redone and new recessed lighting installed.
Her top speed is 14.5 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,330 nautical miles at 13.5 knots with power coming from two 850hp Caterpillar D398-TA diesel engines. For added safety and comfort, she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers.
Strangelove was asking $6,900,000.
