Open Day aboard superyacht Altair this Friday with Ocean Independence
by Malcolm MacLean
Toby Maclaurin of Ocean Independence plans to act as your generous host aboard his central listing, the 40.08m classic sailing yacht _Altair _this Friday, October 8th. You can view her in the Old Port of Cannes between midday and 8pm, with cocktails served from 5pm.
Altair was built in 1931 by William Fife & Sons and was faithfully restored in 1987 with a major refit in 2007. This gorgeous superyacht has French polished walnut throughout her guest accommodation and her interior is considered one of the most beautiful and authentic in any yacht. The panelling, door furniture and bathroom fittings are all from 1931. In 2007 all nickel and chrome interior fittings were removed and re-plated with the interior freshly French polished and painted. She sleeps seven guests in a master, VIP and three single cabins and is asking €7 million.
Toby asks me to point out: "Having cruised all summer in Greece and Croatia, Altair dashed back for a quick Lloyds class survey and then on to race in the Voiles de St-Tropez where she finished second in class. A clear demonstration of her condition and design!"
