Benetti motor yacht Lady Michelle for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
Sold in July 2016, the 55 metre motor yacht Cakewalk is back on the market, renamed Lady Michelle and listed for sale with Kevin Greene at Merle Wood & Associates.
Lady Michelle was built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti and delivered in 2003. Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, she offers a sleek profile, extensive deck areas and well-conceived, spacious interiors. Accommodation is provided for up to 14 guests in six cabins. The vast split-level owner’s suite has his and hers white marble bathrooms, a separate study and a private raised observation lounge with spectacular views forward. Clever design provides for a VIP cabin on the upper deck, affording wonderful views rarely enjoyed in guest accommodation. Further accommodation is provided in two double and two twin cabins, each with a Pullman berth, on the lower deck and all cabins on this yacht for sale have en suite facilities.
Lady Michelle has a spacious, generous layout with wide appeal, featuring warm cherry and burr walnut woods throughout. She has three spacious aft decks which offer a host of opportunities for al fresco living with open seating, lounging and dining areas located across the decks. She completed a $2 million refit in Florida in March 2015 which has brought her up to a very high standard throughout. Recent interior décor upgrades include re-upholstered soft furnishings, new loose furniture, dining table and carpets. A complete review of all technical systems has also taken place along with cosmetic detailing in all technical areas, while in 2017 she received a full refit and now sports a fresh blue hull.
Twin 1,850hp Caterpillar engines give a cruising speed of 14 knots with a range of 7,000 nautical miles at 12 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
On display at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, Lady Michelle is asking $21,500,000.
