Edmiston sells Heesen superyacht Satori with BYS and Fraser yachts
2014-02-27By Malcolm MacLean

Hot news as Vassilis Fotilas at Fraser Yachts sends word that his joint listing for sale with Neal Esterly, and Thom Conboy of BYS, the 49.8m motor yacht Satori, is sold with Antonio Yturbe Redo at Edmiston acting for the buyer.

Built by Dutch superyacht builder Heesen and delivered in 2011, Satori has sporty lines that combine the exuberance of the 37 Metre Series with the decorum one might expect from a larger yacht. Yacht designer Frank Laupman, from Omega Architects, was responsible for her exterior styling and design, and his triumph was in combining these good looks with a range of spacious deck areas. He was helped in this endeavour by the highly practical requirement to keep the yacht’s tonnage beneath 500GT.

The layout of the interior by Rémi Tessier is conventional, with saloons at the aft of the main and bridge decks, and the master cabin set forward of a lobby and galley that occupy the centre of the main deck. On the lower deck is a stern garage that connects to the engine room, four guest cabins and crew quarters in the bow.

The four guest cabins – two large full-beam VIP staterooms and two smaller twins of equal luxury – open off a lower deck lobby lit with a luminous slab of onyx.

A winner at the 2012 World Superyacht Awards, superyacht Satori was asking €27.9 million.
