The classic 46.6 metre motor yacht Lionwind, listed for sale by Glynn Smith at Denison Superyachts, has been sold with Vesa Kaukonen at KK Superyachts introducing the buyer.
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Feadship to a design by the iconic Jon Bannenberg, she was delivered in 1983 and previously refitted in 1997 and 2002.
The yacht is currently lying in Antalya, Turkey at the Sunrise Yachts yard and the brokers are proposing an extensive refit for the new owner who will be undertaking a careful restoration. The aim is to restore her to her former glory with some added features like a transom extension and a Jacuzzi on the foredeck.
Other proposals include the replacement of her main engines and generators, full mechanical, electronics and navigation equipment upgrades, a new interior and a full repaint of the hull and superstructure.
Currently, Lionwind accommodates 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a spit level master suite with separate access to the main deck, a main deck VIP suite, a further VIP suite below deck and two twins, all with en suite facilities and all with Grundig television screens.
The upper dining saloon is a 21 square metre area situated on the bridge deck featuring a partial glass roof, floor to ceiling windows, a teak deck and an extendable table to accommodate 20 guests. The 120 square metre bridge deck has an aft section accommodating two tenders of up to 8.5 metres each. The forward section features a bar area and outside dining for up to 20 guests with an extendable table. The table can also be lowered to form a shaded sun bed.
Twin 3,000hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 15 knots.
Lionwind was asking $3,950,000.
