Alalunga motor yacht Yumi sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.6 metre motor yacht Yumi, listed for sale by Costas Dimopoulos at IYC, has been sold in-house.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Alalunga to a design by Andrea Bacigalupo, Yumi was delivered in 2007 as an Alalunga 85X Sports model. A lavish interior by Carlo Galeazzi features cherry wood joinery along with fine leathers and fabrics accommodating up to nine guests in four cabins. These consist of a master suite, VIP suite and two doubles, all with entertainment centres and en suite shower facilities. A further two cabins accommodate four crew.
Wrap around windows allow light to flood into the saloon with its cheerful striped settees, a bar and an entertainment centre including a large television screen. Forward is a dining area seating eight guests and further forward still is the helm position.
Outside spaces are generous and include a foredeck large enough to offer sunbathing space for 10 guests on comfortable sun pads while the cockpit has built-in upholstered seating, a table and chairs to provide a memorable al fresco dining experience.
Recent work has included the servicing of her electronics and engines, new batteries, new upholstery and extensive maintenance work, meaning that she enters the upcoming summer season in turnkey condition. Twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines connected to Arneson surface drives give her a cruising speed of 32 knots topping out at 44 knots.
Yumi was asking €750,000.
