24 April 2019By Malcolm MacLean

The 29.73 metre sailing yacht Blue Papillon, listed for sale by Andre Barbier at Dolphin Yachts, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Dennis Frederiksen at Fraser in Monaco.

Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Jongert to a design by Doug Peterson and Peter Sijm, she was delivered in 1993 and most recently refitted in 2015.

Accommodation is for six guests in a full beam master suite and two twins, all with entertainment centres and en suite shower facilities. In addition, there are quarters for four crew in two en suite cabins.

Blue Papillon was asking €2,500,000

In the deckhouse, there is a second steering position, two dining tables, one of which converts to a bed, and an entertainment centre. Down in the saloon, there is comfortable seating and an entertainment centre.

Blue Papillon carries a full wardrobe of new Doyle sails and her flush decks have Lewmar hydraulic winches. She is also fitted with Nirvana and Reckmann hydraulic furling systems.

An innovation, installed during the 2015 refit, is a table in the deck cockpit on a rise and fall mechanism, transforming it into a large bed to be used as a chill out zone. Under power, a single Mercedes OM 423 diesel engine gives her a range of 2,500 nautical miles.
