Classic Feadship motor yacht Berilda sold

10 February 2021By Malcolm MacLean

The venerable 38.4 metre Feadship motor yacht Berilda, listed for sale by Josh Gulbranson at Fraser in Florida, has been sold in an in-house deal.

Berilda was built in steel and aluminium by Dutch superyacht yard Feadship to a design by De Voogt Naval Architects with delivery in 1978. She has undergone extensive refit periods since 2016, particularly in 2016 through to 2017 and most recently in 2019. The owners have gone to great efforts to maintain the original Feadship aesthetics and feel, while using the newest technology. The forward main dining room has been converted into the master cabin while what was the full beam lower deck master is now the VIP suite.

Accommodation is now for up to 11 guests in five cabins comprising a master suite, VIP suite, two doubles and a twin, all with entertainment centres, television screens and marble en suite bathroom facilities.

Berilda was asking $7,500,000

The voluminous main saloon is bright and airy with oversized windows allowing for plenty of natural light. An inviting white L-shaped sofa, oversized upholstered swivel chairs, and ivory carpeting create an idyllic space to relax and enjoy the yacht's ambience. Rich teak wooden cabinetry is displayed throughout the saloon adding a warmness to its surroundings, while the entertainment centre includes a 55-inch flatscreen television set.

Aft on the sundeck is a brand-new Jacuzzi spa tub surrounded by plush sun pads on either side. Sun sails have been added to provide shade when desired. Moving forward is tender storage with two completely refurbished cranes on the port and starboard sides. Past the tenders located forward on the sundeck, to starboard of the funnel is a large barbecue grill while to port is a fully enclosed full wet bar with sink, icemaker and refrigerator.  A table can be set up amidships for snacks or al fresco dining. Her top speed is 13.5 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 4,650 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 565hp Caterpillar D379-B-TA diesel engines. For added comfort and safety, she is fitted with zero-speed stabilisers.

Berilda was asking $7,500,000.
