30 June 2019 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 49.8-metre motor yacht Project Blake has been sold with both buyer and seller represented by Peter Redford and Eugenio Cannarsa at Fraser in Australia.

Built with a GRP hull and aluminium superstructure by Italian yard Benetti to an in-house design, Project Blake was delivered in 2018. London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell was appointed to design the interiors, described as modern classic with brushed fir, dark walnut and white oak woodwork as well as hammered bronze, light silver, etched glass mirrors and mother of pearl mosaics.

Project Blake was asking €30,200,000 and is now renamed AJ

Guest accommodation includes a huge main deck owner’s apartment, measuring 60 metres square, complete with its own sea balcony. A further four double cabins on the lower deck and the option for two more guests to sleep in the convertible saloon area takes the total accommodation to 12 guests. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to nine people.

Other key features include a dedicated superyacht beach club with a sea view terrace, which provides an ideal spot for enjoying the sunset, while the side-loading garage can house a tender measuring up to 6.3 metres.

Power comes from a pair of 1,600hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a maximum cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots. Naiad dynamic zero speed stabilisers ensure comfort and safety at sea and in port.
