Converted explorer yacht Lestralaur sold

Converted explorer yacht Lestralaur sold

The 42.67 metre explorer yacht Lestralaur, listed for sale by Gregg Morton at Northrop & Johnson, has been sold with Mike Bristow at Rio Marine introducing the buyer.

Lestralaur was built in aluminium by the Canadian John Manly yard with delivery in 1981 as James Sinclair for the Canadian Fisheries Department and used as a high-speed patrol boat capable of negotiating the rough waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Renamed Lestralaur, she is 90 per cent of the way through a conversion into a luxury expedition yacht. In 2010 she was lengthened and modified to accommodate a helicopter, re-powered with brand new MTU 12V 4000 main engines, and fitted with new stabilisers, bow and stern thrusters, plus many other mechanical and electrical upgrades.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in six cabins consisting of a master suite on the main deck, while on the lower deck is a VIP suite and four double cabins. Currently, only the master and VIP suites have full en-suite bathroom facilities. Just forward of the guest area and through a watertight bulkhead door is a space that could be used as the crew area.

Furthest aft on the main deck is the saloon with ample space for seating, a card table, entertainment centre including a flatscreen television and a large bar area. Forward is a fully equipped galley featuring a breakfast nook for casual meals.

Twin 2,750hp MTU 12V 4000 diesel engines have logged less than 400 hours and give her a cruising speed of 16 knots.

An estate sale, Lestralaur was asking $1,900,000.
