by Malcolm MacLean
Alithia was built in Alustar by German superyacht yard Abeking & Rasmussen to a design by Bill Tripp and delivered in 2002. She boasts an Andrew Winch interior sleeping up to 10 guests and six crew. Flexible guest accommodation consists of a master suite, two twin staterooms and a children's cabin with six berths and all have en suite facilities. In addition, the yacht's library has a large sofa that converts into a further double bed.
She combines the charm of a traditional sailing yacht, the pace of a performance yacht and the advantages of state of the art technology for navigation, communication and safety. Under power, a a 600hp MTU engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots and she was fitted with new Doyle Stratis sails early in 2013.
Lying in Croatia, Alithia was asking €6 million.
