Classic Motor Yacht Conquest of 1966 Now For Sale With IYC
by Malcolm Maclean
The venerable 28.65 metre motor yacht Conquest of 1966 has had a central agency change and is now listed for sale by Christian Ekeberg at IYC.
Built by Spain's Luzuriaga yard in steel as a full displacement yacht to a design by D.J. Richardson, she was launched in 1966 as a true gentleman's yacht. She was completely rebuilt between 2008 and 2009 with a calm, classic interior by Luc Deflorenne and accommodates up to nine guests in four staterooms. These consist of a master suite, two doubles and a twin with a Pullman berth, and all staterooms have en suite bathroom facilities on this yacht for sale.
An expansive main deck saloon has ample comfortable seating, a bar and an entertainment system. A huge aft deck and massive flybridge offer endless opportunities for al fresco entertaining and, now MCA compliant, she celebrated her first season as a charter yacht in 2013. Following a full restoration in 2011, Conquest of 1966 now combines the tranquil spirit of a classic yacht with state-of-the-art technology.
Her top speed is 14 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 1,000 nautical miles at 11 knots with power coming from two 450hp Cummins QSL9.M diesel engines.
Lying in Antibes, France, Conquest of 1966 is asking €1,490,000.
