Tom Barnes at bluewater tells me that he's jointly listed for sale with Hyde Yachts the 26.21 metre motor yacht LaLouise.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Falcon Yachts, she was delivered in 2008 as one of the yard's Falcon 86 series. The current owner has made extensive improvements since purchasing the yacht in 2012 including the installation of two Seakeeper Gyros 8000 series, giving her excellent stability both at anchor and under way.
Accommodation is for eight guests in four staterooms consisting of a master suite, VIP stateroom and port and starboard twin cabins, all with en suite facilities. Overall she has a bright and airy interior with the use of light wood and neutral tones throughout.
An expansive saloon has comfortable fabric settees, a Panasonic 42 inch television and an entertainment system featuring Bose surround sound. The dining area has a wine cellar and seating for eight guests around a large extendable table.
Twin MTU 12V 2000 M93 engines have less than 800 hours on them and power LaLouise to a cruising speed of 22 knots and a maximum speed of 28 knots.
Lying in Antibes, LaLouise is asking €1.7 million.
