Feadship motor yacht Oncle Paul sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 33.53 metre motor yacht Oncle Paul, listed for sale by Fergus Torrance at Torrance Yachts, has been sold with Charles Herve at CSO Yachts introducing the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Feadship to a design by De Voogt, she was delivered in 1973 as a long range gentleman’s cruising yacht. Although Oncle Paul has been upgraded many times, she still retains her original rich teak paneling throughout.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests in a master suite, VIP suite and two twin cabins, each with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for six crew in three cabins and a crew mess.
The saloon is elegantly styled with an old world décor befitting a classic yacht of her age. She has comfortable settees and armchairs in front of an entertainment centre including a 50-inch Sony plasma television screen and a Bose stereo surround sound system. A formal dining area is situated forward seating eight guests and the owner’s private office is adjacent.
Her impressive aft deck offers protection from the wind and has al fresco dining for up to ten guests at a large table and chairs along with a full bar. Steps lead down to a full-beam swim platform. Up on the sun deck is ample seating, tables and an aft Bimini top providing welcome shade from the sun.
Twin 460hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 10 knots and a range of 2,500 nautical miles. She also benefits from zero-speed stabilisers to eliminate rolling motion at sea and in port.
Oncle Paul was asking €3,200,000.
