The 31.5 metre classic canoe-stern motor yacht Happy Day, has been sold in an in-house deal, with Moravia's Roy Posthuma representing the buyer and Adam Papadakis representing the seller. 

Happy Day was built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti, she was delivered in 1969. In 2006 she went through a total rebuild at Mondo Marine when she was stripped back to the bare hull and received completely new engineering, engines, generators, electrics and a fresh interior by Frederic Mechiche. She was further upgraded and refreshed in 2017 and 2018, including a full repaint.

Happy Day was asking €2,500,000

Accommodation is now for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite on the upper deck with a private aft deck, a full beam VIP suite below deck, a double and a twin, all with entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.

The main saloon is furnished with L-shaped settees, occasional chairs and tables, and leads into a formal dining room and a library/media room fitted with a 42-inch LCD television screen.

There is an abundance of outdoor space including a large aft deck with upholstered bench seating, a table and chairs, and a huge sun deck with loungers, sun pads and a fridge. Twin 556hp Volvo diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots.
