The 33.8-metre Cantiere delle Marche motor yacht Mimi La Sardine has been sold with Jim Evans and Juan Andrade of SuperYachtsMonaco representing the seller and Alex Heyes of TWW Yachts acting for the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium in 2019, she was designed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Design as the first and only Nauta Air 110 model, based on the same platform as sistership Narvalo. Following her launch, she picked up awards for Best Displacement Motor Yacht and Best Interior Design in her class (below 299GT) at the World Superyacht Awards and Design and Innovation Awards.
The panel of judges praised the yacht's use of organic materials and unfinished wood "to create an immediate holiday atmosphere that is at the same time sophisticated and luxurious."
Jim Evans, managing director of SuperYachtsMonaco, said: "The owners and their team were deeply involved in the build process with the result being a masterpiece". The owners specified that they wanted a "Bohemian Boutique Hotel" and they took to a Pinterest board to share ideas with the yard's team.
One of Mimi La Sardine's unique attributes is the way in which she comfortably accommodates 12 guests in five cabins on a length overall of just 34 metres. She boasts features that are more common on larger vessels and has an extremely welcoming ‘beach house’ interior. Natural wood finishes are evident on surfaces from sole to deckhead, inviting guests to feel relaxed walking barefoot and wet after a dip in the pool. Dining is at bridge deck level leaving the saloon for relaxation. Crew quarters allow for a team of six.
The 295GT yacht has a useful 5,500 nautical mile range at nine knots, a cruising speed of 12.2 knots and a maximum speed of 13.5 knots. Her hull was designed by Sergio Cutolo.
Mimi La Sardine was asking €13,500,000.
