Motor yacht Makira now for sale at YPI
2012-07-03By Malcolm MacLean

A call to Gregory Gheraia at Yachting Partners International brings news that he's just taken over the central listing of the 43m motor yacht Makira.

Delivered by Italyachts in 2010 to a design by Andrea Bacigalupo, Makira sleeps up to nine guests in a master suite, VIP stateroom and a double and twin cabin with Pullman berth. Triple 2400hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed of 36 knots.

'For all intents and purposes she is a new yacht at a very competitive price,' says Gregory. 'Her engines have less than 600 hours on them and she is in superb condition. Makira is one of those rare builds that can offer an owner all the performance, speed and excitement you could ask of a yacht but without ever having to compromise on comfort and space. We don’t expect her to stay on the market with us for very long.”

Fitted with zero speed stabilisers and commercially registered, Makira is asking €10.9 million.
