The 57 metre motor yacht Lady Sara has been sold with Jason Dunbar at Luke Brown Yachts representing the seller while the buyer was introduced by Craig Timm at 4 Yachts_._
This was a complex sale, in that the previous owner was unable to keep up repayments on the yacht and she was repossessed by the owner’s bank and put up for auction. At the auction, the same bank was the highest bidder and instructed Luke Brown Yachts to find a private buyer – successfully as it turned out.
Designed by Geoff Van Aller, Lady Sara was built in aluminium by US yard Trinity Yachts to ABS class and delivered in 2012. A voluminous interior in fine marbles and stone by Evan K Marshall accommodates 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a main deck master suite, four identical double suites and a twin, all with entertainment centres, television screens and marble en suite bathroom facilities. Also, there is accommodation for 13 crew in seven cabins.
The main saloon lounge area has a full service bar immediately aft with five bar stools, while comfortable relaxation is provided by two settees and loose armchairs along with a low cocktail table. Forward is a formal dining area seating 12 guests, separated from the lounge by a low polished stone top buffet concealing an entertainment centre with a 42 inch Hitachi television screen on a rise and fall mechanism.
The full beam sky lounge has a U-shaped wet bar forward with a polished stone top and is furnished with settees and cocktail tables along with an entertainment centre including a 42 inch Sharp television screen and a Kaleidescape system delivering on-demand audio and video throughout the yacht.
The sundeck is finished with teak decking and offers a large Jacuzzi forward with an open sunbathing area further aft complete with four chaise lounges. Next aft is a semi-enclosed bar with a fridge, icemaker and liquid propane gas barbecue, all under a hard top. Twin 3,384hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 2,560 nautical miles.
The asking price of Lady Sara has been withheld.
