49m classic sailing yacht Orion of the Seas sold

26 April 2021 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

The classic 49.29 metre sailing yacht Orion of the Seas, listed for sale by Sandeman Yacht Company, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Yves Di Lena of YDL Yachting.

A truly iconic yacht, Orion of the Seas was built by the British yard Camper & Nicholsons in 1910 to a design by Charles E. Nicholson and launched in 1910 as Sylvana.

Orion of the Seas was asking €13,200,000.

She was completely rebuilt in 2005 by her previous owners to modern standards with many of her interior features retained to ensure her historic integrity. During the refit, the hull planking was removed, taking it down to bare steel frames, which were then re-galvanised and painted, before the massive teak and iroko planks were bolted back on.

Accommodation is for up to 10 guests in a full-beam master suite and four en suite guest staterooms plus accommodation for 11 crew members.

Under power, twin Caterpillar 230hp engines give her a cruising speed of 11 knots and a top speed of 13 knots.

Orion of the Seas was asking €13,200,000.
