The 34.95 metre motor yacht Domani, listed for sale by Nautique Yachting in Turkey, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Benetti to a design by Stefano Righini and RINA classed, Domani was delivered in 2005 as one of the yard's Benetti Classic 115 models. MCA compliant, she has an interior designed by Kate Bingham accommodating 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite, two VIP suites, two doubles and a twin, all with full en-suite facilities.
Rich wood paneling lines her walls, complemented by marble floors. The main deck features a large saloon and dining room, separated by a bar for entertaining. A rare find for yachts in this size range is the relaxing skylounge, featuring a bar and day head. On the aft main deck, al fresco dining is available around an oval table with a semi circular sofa and teak chairs seating eight guests, and there is a staircase with access to the swimming platform and tender garage.
Twin 1,400hp Caterpillar engines give her a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 10 knots and she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers. Domani has always been privately used and never chartered. In addition, she comes with a Novurania tender and outboard motor, diving equipment and a dive compressor.
In total, 27 Benetti Classic 115s were built from 1998 to 2006, making them one of the most successful semi-custom models over 100 feet.
