2014-01-20By Malcolm MacLean

Paul Madden at Paul Madden Associates tells me he closed on the sale of the 35.1m motor yacht Grand Coroto last week.

Formerly known as Nanou, Grand Coroto was built by Benetti in 2001 to a design by Stefano Righini and, ABS classed, she had an extensive $2 million refit in March 2012. An interior by François Zuretti in cherry wood accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms including a master suite on the main deck. Below deck, there is a VIP stateroom, a double and two twin cabins. All staterooms have full en suite facilities.

The saloon features two sofas to port, a large central coffee table, two club chairs, a card table as well as a 42 inch plasma TV. To starboard is an entrance foyer and stairs leading to the guest accommodation on the lower deck. On the bridge deck aft of the pilothouse is the full beam skylounge with a bar forward, convertible sofas, cocktail table and club chairs.

Twin 1,350hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 2,500 nautical miles and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.

Grand Coroto was asking $5.8 million.
