Maori motor yacht Blackmail sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24 metre motor yacht Blackmail has been sold by Rob Dolling of Verpeka Dolling to a direct client.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Maori with naval architecture, exterior design and interior styling by Nauta Design, Blackmail was delivered in 2013 with a dual purpose as a very large and luxurious tender or a pocket superyacht. An interior in lacquered teak has accommodation for up to five guests in two cabins consisting of a full-beam master suite and a twin with a Pullman berth, both with entertainment centres, Samsung flatscreen television sets and en-suite shower facilities. A further en-suite twin cabin accommodates two crew members.
The open-plan saloon has three helm seats forward, two dining tables, comfortable furniture, a fridge, freezer and an entertainment centre featuring a 55-inch Samsung LED television screen and a stereo surround sound system.
The aft deck offers teak flooring, sun pads with cushions and a retractable ladder down to the sea, while the foredeck is another ideal al fresco entertainment area, boasting two built-in coffee tables, sun pads and built-in settees, all upholstered in a vivid red fabric contrasting sharply with the yacht’s jet black exterior colour. Designed for high performance, she is powered by twin 1,800hp MAN diesel engines coupled to Arneson surface propellers, giving her a maximum speed of 43 knots.
Blackmail was asking €2,300,000.
