Perini Navi sailing yacht Victoria sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 43.44 metre sailing yacht Victoria, jointly listed for sale with Fraser and SuperYachtsMonaco, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Tassos Papantoniou of Torrance Yachts.
Built by the legendary Italian yard Perini Navi to ABS class, Victoria was delivered in 2004 as the first in the yard’s all-aluminium 43 metre series with lines by Ron Holland. Refitted in 2012, her special features include a large sunken aft cockpit for al fresco dining and entertaining, and a vast flybridge.
A cool, elegant interior by Cristiano Gatto uses contemporary walnut and sycamore joinery, accompanied by leather accents and timeless furnishings. Victoria accommodates up to ten guests in a master suite, two VIP cabins and two twin berth cabins. The master suite has a king size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower and tub, while the two double cabins each have a queen size bed and the two twins come with Pullman berths. Each guest cabin has an en-suite bathroom with showers.
Victoria went through a massive refit in 2012 and 2015 including a complete paint job, full rigging service, new sails, new tender, all pumps and captive winches overhauled and replaced where necessary, new soft furnishings, a massive upgrade of audio/visual and navigational equipment, and a rebuild of her engines to zero hours.
Under power, Victoria has a sizeable range of 3,500 nautical miles at an economical speed of 10.4 knots courtesy of twin Deutz BF 1015 MC engines.
Victoria was asking €5,890,000.
