Moonen motor yacht Mariclaire sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 25.76 metre motor yacht Mariclaire, listed for sale by Gianni Ricciardi at East Coast Yacht Brokers in Italy, has been sold with Constantinos Dimopoulos at IYC introducing the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Moonen to a design by Rene van der Velden, she was delivered in 2005 as one of the yard’s long range Moonen 84 models. The interior in cherry wood veneers with solid cherry inserts runs throughout the yacht and accommodates eight guests in four cabins along with berths for three crew in two cabins. Guest accommodation is laid out as a master suite, VIP suite and two doubles, all with entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
A large open plan saloon accommodates a seating area, dining table with chairs, a bar and a galley while the aft deck provides the full range of al fresco entertainment, fitted with a table, chairs and a fridge. The Moonen 84 range of yachts was designed to be largely self sufficient for long periods at sea and Mariclaire is no exception, with large amounts of storage space and ample freezer capacities.
More outdoor dining on is available on the flybridge, offering seating areas, sun pads, a bar and a barbecue along with tender storage space aft. Mariclaire went back to the yard in 2014 for a full refit and is now in sparkling condition. Twin 475hp Caterpillar engines give her a range of 3,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots.
Lying in La Spezia, Italy, Mariclaire was asking €2,950,000 with VAT paid.
