The 82-metre motor yacht Sarafsa has been sold after less than a year on the market, with Rupert Nelson and Matt Pinckney at Burgess representing the seller.
Sarafsa was delivered in 2008 and is the second-largest yacht built by British shipyard Devonport Yachts. She has a beam of 15 metres and an interior volume of 3,179 GT.
The yacht’s build was managed by Royale Oceanic with naval architecture and technical supervision overseen by Burness Corlett and Three Quays Marine. The exterior and interior design of this yacht for sale is the work of Winch Design featuring rich furnishings with deep reds, dark woods and brocades. Guest accommodations are spread over five decks, all of which are served by an elevator, and comfortably sleeps 14 guests in seven en suite cabins.
Highlights of her interior include a glass-topped atrium covering the main spiral staircase ascending through all six decks, a comfortable cinema and a winter garden dining area that can be opened or enclosed by glass sliding doors.
A fully-equipped spa with a swimming pool is located forward of the helipad and has a retractable roof. The garage is large enough to accommodate several toys including six jet skis and a small car while two luxury Diva Royal guest tenders are located onboard along with two further tenders.
Twin 2,682 hp MTU diesel engines deliver a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots. She is fitted with at-anchor stabilisers for exceptional guest comfort.
Built to Lloyds Class and LY2 Large Yacht Code, she can operate to commercial requirements under a Cayman Islands Flag. Running with a crew of 23 and with accommodation for 10 personal staff, she has much to offer a potential buyer. Her interiors boast a cinema, opulent main saloon and fully equipped galley.
Captain Gordon Percy, who assisted with the sale, said: "Of all the clients we had visit with the intention to buy, I feel she [Sarafsa] was purchased by the best client for the yacht, as the client is very motivated and willing to consecrate the time and money to bring her back to her former glory and some more."
Sarafsa, now renamed Pure, will now enter a major refit with "big interior and exterior changes", according to Percy. The project will be managed by JMS Yachting.
She was asking €65,000,000. The buying broker has not been disclosed.
