Benetti motor yacht Sofia of Tortola for sale with Ocean Independence
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Axel Douque at Ocean Independence brings news that he’s signed the 26m motor yacht Sofia of Tortola for sale.
Built by Benetti in 2008 as hull number 5 in the yard’s Legend series and, with a volume to rival many 30 metre superyachts, the exterior design is inspired by the traditional style of yachts from the 60s and 70s that focused on function rather than form.
Built for long-range cruising, the displacement hull has a 1,500 nautical mile range at 10 knots and a top speed of 14 knots, while a bow thruster and a stabilisation-at-anchor system by Naiad are both standard equipment.
MCA compliant, Sofia of Tortola features a contemporary and cosy Francois Zuretti interior, illuminated by large windows. Four light and spacious staterooms offer accommodation for up to eight guests and all are equipped with flat screen TV and DVD/CD.
Lying in Rimini, Italy, Sofia of Tortola is asking €3.6 million.
