Further price cut on Picchiotti superyacht Piano Bar at IYC
2014-04-24By Malcolm MacLean

News just in from Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection of a further $500,000 price drop on his central listing for sale, the 47.85m motor yacht Piano Bar.

Built by Italian superyacht yard Picchiotti, Piano Bar was delivered in 1982 and was re-launched after an extensive two-year refit and refurbishment programme in 2011/2012. She now features modernised accommodation, updated electronics and new air conditioning.

Her name is derived from the upper deck piano bar, an air-conditioned oasis away from the heat of the day. If you have no musical talents, just sit back, relax with a cocktail and the piano will do the work for you. With her two tenders launched, the huge aft deck becomes a major open space for large-scale functions and parties. The pool deck features a barbecue and wet bar, comfortable sun lounging area and two seating areas for al fresco entertaining.

The interior of Piano Bar has been professionally redecorated during her refit, bringing a de luxe feel to all areas. Six staterooms accommodate 12 guests in well-appointed comfort. The layout is configured as a master suite, two double staterooms, two twin cabins and the study on the main deck forward can be converted to provide a further twin guest stateroom. All staterooms have en suite bathrooms with fine marble fittings. Twin Caterpillar diesel engines give Piano Bar a cruising speed of 12 knots and maximum speed of 15 knots.

Lying in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Piano Bar is down from $3.9 million to $3.4 million.
