Bugari motor yacht Lady Aida sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 36.47 metre motor yacht Lady Aida, listed for sale by Gianni Ricciardi at East Coast Yacht Brokers, has been sold with Velmar Yachts introducing the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Bugari to a design by Artemio Bugari, she was delivered in 1990. RINA classed, she has been refitted three times, in 1997, 2003 and 2005, and can accommodate up to 12 guests in four cabins.
All the guest accommodation is on the lower deck and consists of a full beam master suite, two doubles and a twin plus four Pullman berths and all cabins have en suite bathroom facilities.
A large aft deck with a table and seating for eight guests leads into the main deck saloon. Here there is a sinuous tan leather settee curving down the starboard side of the lounge area while to port are matching leather armchairs, an entertainment centre and bar. Forward is a dining area with seating for 10 guests and storage cabinets for glassware, china and silver.
The flybridge was extended during the 2005 refit and offers a range of sun beds and loungers for soaking up the sun
Lady Aida cruises at 12 knots, with a maximum speed of 14 knots and has a range of 3,800 nautical miles at 11 knots. She is powered by twin 900hp Deutz-MWM diesel engines and is also fitted with zero speed stabilizers to dampen roll motion at sea and in port.
Now delivered to her new owner in Italy, she will have a further thorough refit.
