La Pellegrina 1 was built in carbon-reinforced Kevlar by French yard Chantier Naval Couach to a design by Exequiel Cano Lanza and delivered in 2012 as a Couach 5000 Fly model. A bright interior by Jean-Pierre Fantini accommodates 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a master suite on the upper deck, a VIP suite on the main deck and three doubles with queen beds and a twin below deck. There are quarters for a crew of 10.
The open-plan saloon, with floor to ceiling windows, is flooded with light. It has a large lounge area with port and starboard settees, coffee tables and an entertainment centre with a low credenza separating it from a forward formal dining area with seating for 12 guests.
Outdoor dining and entertaining is available on the sheltered, expansive aft deck with built in seating and two dining tables. Up on the sundeck there is room for further al fresco dining with three settees, sun pads and a spa pool while the foredeck, reached by walk around side decks, offers yet more space for relaxation and casual meals.
The 498GT yacht is powered by twin 5,240hp MTU engines giving her a maximum speed of over 25 knots and a transatlantic range of 3,500 nautical miles. Sea Keeper gyroscopic stabilizers ensure that there is minimal roll motion at sea and in port.
La Pellegrina 1 had a last known asking price of €12,800,000.
