by Malcolm Maclean
The 36.9 metre motor yacht FF1, listed for sale by Yachting Experts in Florida, has been sold with Performance Boats in Mexico introducing the buyer.
Built in composite by Italian yard Benetti to a design by Stefano Righini, she is RINA classed and MCA compliant, with delivery in 2012 as one of the yard’s Classic 121’ series. An interior by Francois Zuretti uses oak paneling with leather accents to great effect, accommodating 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a main deck master suite, two doubles and two twins, all with entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
The elegant main saloon has full height windows flooding the area with light and offers comfortable seating on white settees and armchairs, a bar, ice maker and an entertainment centre with a large television screen. Forward is formal dining area with seating for 10 guests.
The sky lounge is geared towards relaxation, with large settees and occasional chairs, a bar with an ice maker and an entertainment centre including a 40 inch LED television and a stereo surround sound system.
Al fresco dining is available on the aft deck with built in upholstered seating, a table and chairs.
Outdoor living is also catered for by a vast sundeck with versatile seating arrangements on loose seating, a bar, barbecue and a hard top which partly covers this area, giving welcome relief from the midday sun.
Twin 1,500hp MTU diesel engines give her a very respectable range of 3,400 nautical miles at 11 knots.
FF1 was asking €10 million.
