The 34.95 metre motor yacht Elaldrea, listed for sale by Marco Fodale at Camper & Nicholsons International, has been sold with the assistance of Oscar Romano at Benetti and with the buyer introduced by Luca Gianardi at Master Brokerage.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Benetti to a design by Stefano Righini, Elaldrea was delivered in 2002 as one of the yard’s popular Classic 115 series. High gloss cherry and maple woods have been used throughout her elegant interior, which was designed by François Zuretti and accommodates up to 11 guests in five cabins
The accommodation is configured as a master suite, two doubles and a twin plus a Pullman berth, all with entertainment centres, television screens and marble en suite bathroom facilities. An additional four cabins can sleep up to seven crewmembers.
Several details have been customised, such as the fixed awning above the large Jacuzzi on the sun deck giving this area day-long usability. In addition there is a bar and small dining area as well as a full width sun bed and individual sun loungers.
Another of the customised features is aft of the upper deck where a 42-inch plasma screen television has been built into the bulkhead along with a Bose stereo surround sound system. This area, with a large circular dining table that seats ten guests, leads directly into the upper deck saloon and bar.
Twin 1,490hp MTU diesel engines power her to speeds of up to 16 knots and she is fitted with Koopnautic zero speed stabilisers.
Elaldrea was asking €3,300,000.
