Benetti Motor Yacht Black Pepper Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 25.3 metre motor yacht Black Pepper, listed for sale by Cornelius Kistler at Breeze Yachting, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti, Black Pepper was delivered in 1975 and was put through an €800,000 refit as recently as 2016. Her interior in cherry wood panelling and oak flooring can accommodate up to nine guests comprising a master suite, VIP suite, a double and a twin with a Pullman berth. All cabins have entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities, while there are also quarters for four crew.
The main saloon is classic in style, blending the original fitted joinery — maintained in perfect condition — with modern sofas and a centrepiece glass and bronze coffee table. Traditional lighting works well with newly installed soft LED overhead fittings, while large windows allow for the maximum of natural light. Forward is a formal dining room with an extendable walnut table comfortably seating eight guests.
Outdoors, a vast sun deck with loungers and sunpads offers a peaceful haven for al fresco relaxation and dining, sheltered by a large canvas awning on stainless steel supports.
Twin 575hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a range of 1,900 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 11 knots.
Lying in Palma, Spain, Black Pepper was asking €1,490,000.
