Tomaso Polli at Edmiston & Company sends news of a €250,000 price drop on his central listing, the 28m motor yacht Don Giovanni.
Built as a twin-engined oceangoing tug by Japan's Kanagawa yard in 1964, she clocked up miles for three years in the titanic task of tugging gigantic blocks of concrete for the construction of the harbour of Lagos, Nigeria, on three-month voyages between Singapore and Africa.
For several years she belonged to the di Napoli Shipping Company, whose logo she still bears on the chimneys, and has now been converted from a working tug to a classic, comfortable and luxurious motor yacht.
Don Giovanni is a unique little ship, with a personality all of her own that is difficult to match. She moves gently and elegantly with an impressive style, cruising comfortably at nine knots.
The price of Don Giovanni is now down from €2.45 million to €2.2 million.
