The 54.4-metre motor yacht Faribana V has been sold, with Richard Higgins at Northrop & Johnson acting for the seller and Mohamad Chehab of Chehab Marine representing the buyer.
Designed inside and out by Winch Design, Faribana V was built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Amels to Lloyd's class and delivered in 1998. A total interior refurbishment and exterior repaint was carried out in 2012. Accommodation is for 14 guests in seven cabins consisting of a full-beam master suite, split-level VIP suite, two doubles and two twins. She has quarters for 16 crew.
Deck spaces are exceptional with varied comfortable and enjoyable locations to sunbathe or be entertained. The sundeck is huge, with a pool forward of a bar that boasts panoramic views and is surrounded by sun beds.
Only ever used privately and originally commissioned by and delivered to a royal family, Faribana V boasts a combination of classical interiors and excellent deck spaces. Special features include an elevator and a beauty salon. Although she is a private yacht, Faribana V has been maintained to MCA commercial standards and so could be certified as a commercial vessel with ease.
Twin 1,650hp Caterpillar diesel engines give the 836GT yacht a maximum speed of 16 knots and she has a remarkable range of 3,600 nautical miles at an economical cruising speed of 13 knots.
Faribana V was last asking €13,950,000.
