Price cut and central agency change on explorer yacht Asteria

The 49 metre expedition yacht Asteria has received a $2.75 million price cut and changed central agencies. She is now listed for sale with Jim Acher at bluewater.

Asteria was built by Greece’s Anastassiades yard and delivered in 1970 as an ocean-going salvage tug. She was converted in 2000/2002 by Northport Engineering in New Zealand into a world-cruising expedition yacht. A large saloon has comfortable seating and a 72-inch 3D television screen with surround sound, plus a formal dining area for 14.

Accommodation is for 12 guests on this yacht for sale, including a master suite on the upper deck with an adjoining dressing room and a private study. On the main deck, two of the four double staterooms with queen size beds can be converted into twins, and there is a further twin cabin, all with en-suite facilities. She also has space for 22 crew across 11 cabins.

Her dedicated heli-deck can accommodate medium-sized helicopters for up to six or seven passengers such as the Eurocopter B3 and B4, and Bell 407. A single 1,850hp Caterpillar engine gives Asteria an enormous range of 7,000 nautical miles with a cruising speed of 10 knots, and she is fitted with Quantum zero-speed stabilisers. She has safely sailed through the North West Passage and to both North and South Poles made possible by a water capacity of 70,000 litres.

Asteria is now asking $8,750,000.
