Moonen motor yacht Maximus sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 30 metre motor yacht Maximus, listed for sale by Maarten ten Holter at Fraser, has been sold with Rytis Babravicius of Camper & Nicholsons International introducing the buyer.
Previously known as Darsea, she was built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Moonen and launched in 2008 as the first in a highly successful custom series of Moonen 97' displacement cruisers. She features handsome lines from René van der Velden and an open interior from Art-Line accommodates eight guests in a master suite, VIP suite and two twin cabins, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities.
On the main deck her spacious saloon features dramatic, contemporary styling by Art-Line Interior Design. Wenge wood joinery along with light-hued fabrics and high-end designer furniture come together to make a singular yachting presentation.
The low profile and design of the flybridge adds volume throughout, enabling a large master suite below as well as guest rooms, plus increased stowage. This also allows for a longer aft deck lounging area, plus increased room below for chartering operations. Twin 600hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles
Maximus was asking €4.9 million.
