The 25.8-metre classic Monara is newly listed for sale with Ed Cavendish and Ed Dickinson of Northrop & Johnson.
Built from steel by Feadship De Vries in 1969, the canoe stern motor yacht underwent a rebuild in 2016 at Feadship with Kees van den Hoek and Feadship responsible for the redesign. She has completed her five-year annual inspection with Malta Commercial, classed until 2027, and also benefits from a Spanish charter licence.Read More/Monara: Inside the refit of the classic Feadship superyacht
Monara has an illustrious history, once owned by a Milanese banking family, an English Lord and has welcomed Spanish royalty aboard.
The yacht's interior ambience is light, open and airy. All the windows in the lounge and portholes in the cabins can be opened, while the varnished teak has been replaced with dark-stained oak. Her main saloon offers an L-shaped settee situated opposite a full-length cabinet that houses a built-in pop-up TV.
A unique feature of Monara is a triple-glazed glass panel on the floor of the saloon that provides visibility of the restored Gardner main engines. Her galley is well-equipped and features a "Dutch door" that opens directly to the main deck. Aft to starboard are stairs leading to the guest cabins with access to the master cabin forward.
Monara accommodates eight guests in four refined cabins. The master suite is queen-size with a built-in desk, a settee, ample drawer storage and a large walk-in wardrobe. Below deck and aft is the VIP cabin with an en-suite bathroom. Midships are two more guest cabins, with a shared bathroom, each cabin easily transformed into either twin or double configuration. LED TVs are hidden behind one-way mirrors, out of sight when not in use.
The Feadship's exterior features classic lines, a trademark clipper bow and a canoe stern. Her aft deck is a beautiful covered space with comfortable seating for 12 around an extendable teak-varnished wood table. Her large sundeck is supported by slim, slanting steel posts, which barely disrupt the views. To the aft are sunbeds for up to 10 guests and at the centre is an L-shaped lounge sofa with a coffee table. The funnel houses a retractable gas barbeque, two fridges and an icemaker.
The 81GT classic yacht for sale has a leisurely top speed of 10 knots, a 1,900 nautical mile range and is fitted with zero-speed stabilizers, the latest technologies and AV equipment and stays virtually silent overnight courtesy of her electric battery autonomy. Guests can enjoy fresh air from the open portholes.
Monara is lying in Barcelona, Spain. Her asking price is upon application.
