55 Nishii Bannenberg superyacht sold

The 55.17m motor yacht 55 Nishii Bannenberg, jointly listed for sale by Fraser Yachts and Yachting Partners International, has been sold with Edmiston & Company introducing the buyer.

Formerly named Southern Cross III, she was built with a GRP hull and aluminium superstructure by Japan’s Nishii Zosen yard in 1986 to a design by Sterling Yachts and Jon Bannenberg. Formerly owned by the late Australian billionaire Alan Bond, 55 Nishii Bannenberg is one of the best known and easily recognised superyachts in the world.

The stunning aft deck lounge area, which is accessed via a grand central staircase from the main deck level, has circular seating with tables to port and starboard, a large al fresco circular dining table with seating for up to 12 and a full wet bar. Entering the saloon from the aft deck, there is seating to starboard with a faux bookcase to port. The focal point of this saloon is the formal wet bar to port, with bar stools. Forward and split level is the observation saloon with three distinct seating areas and 180 degree panoramic views.

She is ABS classed and has a grand interior that was designed to impress, accommodating up to 15 guests in a master suite, four spacious double suites and two additional guest cabins. Her two 3516B Caterpillar diesel engines give her a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots.

“She has benefitted from a number of refits, the most recent being in 2010,” says her YPI Sales and New Construction Broker, Matt Albert. "Huge interior and exterior areas also mean she is perfect for entertaining. All in all, she was one of the very best 55 metre deals on the worldwide market.”

55 Nishii Bannenberg was asking $10 million.
