News from Camper & Nicholsonsthat Jean-Marie Recamier has been appointed central agent for sale of the 47 metre motor yacht Yalla.

Built in steel and aluminium to DNV class by Dutch superyacht yard Heesen Yachts, Yalla was designed by Omega Architects and delivered in 2004.

An elegant Art Deco interior by Dutch designers Art-Line accommodates 12 guests in five staterooms. The master suite is full beam on the main deck and below there are a further two double staterooms and two twins, each with a Pullman berth. All staterooms have full en suite bathroom facilities.

Constantly maintained and upgraded regardless of cost by her build Captain, Yalla is in excellent condition and has only been privately used. She is now on the market with low engine hours and a full recent paint job in 2013 as well as a new, state-of-the-art audio/visual system.

Notably, the superyacht was the first fast displacement yacht offering a top speed of 17 knots with excellent seaworthiness. Twin 1,577hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical miles.

On display at the forthcoming Monaco Yacht Show, Yalla is asking €18.75 million.
