Danish sailing yacht Aventura sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 33.2 metre sailing yacht Aventura, listed for sale by Georges Bourgoignie at Fraser, has been sold with Dirk Johnson at Perini Navi USA introducing the buyer.
Designed by Ted Fontaine to be a family-friendly yacht, construction on Aventura was begun in GRP by Danish Yachts in 2005 to DNV class. She was eventually sent to The Netherlands to be completed by Holland Jachtbouw and delivered in May 2006. She has four cabins for up to 10 guests. These include a master suite with direct access to the deck, a double suite and two twin cabins, each with a Pullman berth, and all with entertainment centres and en suite shower facilities. She offers the maximum living potential for a yacht that can be handled by only four crew.
Her raised pilot house has panoramic views, comfortable seating and dining areas plus terrific ceiling heights and an entertainment centre including a large flatscreen television.
Key features include hydraulic stern steps, and a bow thruster and stern thruster to facilitate docking. In a further testament to her quality, the entire build and delivery were managed by the team at MCM, directly overseen by Nigel Ingram. Her rig was designed and constructed by renowned performance boat builder Killian Bushe, whose composite expertise has been utilised by multiple America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Racing Teams.
She comes complete with a new Doyle sails wardrobe while, under power, a 420hp Scania diesel engine gives her a range of 2,500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Aventura was asking $2,900,000.
