by Malcolm MacLean
The 45.26 metre sailing yacht Helios, jointly listed for sale by Alex Lees-Buckley at Camper & Nicholsons and Bruce Brakenhoff at Perini Navi USA, has been sold in a direct deal.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian superyacht yard Perini Navi to a design by Ron Holland and ABS classed, Helios was launched in 2007. She is a great combination of a cruising yacht with excellent sailing performance and her versatile accommodation offers room for up to eight guests in four staterooms. These consist of a master suite, a VIP stateroom and two twins that can convert into doubles and all have en suite bathroom facilities. A further three cabins sleep six crewmembers.
The interior of this superyacht is a pure classic, mainly fashioned from mahogany and mahogany briar. Developed in collaboration with Joe Smullin, one of the world’s premier acoustic engineers, she is extremely quiet under all conditions.
Her large flybridge has a helm station forward and a comfortable sunbathing area aft, while under power a single 1,100hp Caterpillar engine gives her a maximum speed of 13 knots and a range of 4,100 nautical miles.
Helios was asking €10,900,000 and is now renamed Blush.
