Classic superyacht Altair now for sale with Sandeman
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Barney Sandeman at Sandeman Yacht Company brings news that he's now taken over the central agency for sale of the 40.08m classic sailing yacht Altair with a €1 million price reduction.
Altair was built in 1931 by William Fife & Sons and was faithfully restored in 1987 with a major refit in 2007. This gorgeous superyacht has French polished walnut throughout her guest accommodation and her interior is considered one of the most beautiful and authentic in any yacht. The panelling, door furniture and bathroom fittings are all from 1931. In 2007 all nickel and chrome interior fittings were removed and re-plated with the interior freshly French polished and painted.
Altair sleeps seven guests in a master, VIP and three single cabins and is now asking €6 million.
