Price drop on motor yacht Lestralaur at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Lestralaur was built in 1981 and originally launched as the James Sinclair for the Canadian Fisheries Department to be used as a high speed patrol boat capable of negotiating the rough waters of the Pacific Northwest.
Re-christened as Lestralaur and 90% of the conversion into a luxury expedition yacht complete, she’s been fitted with all the bells and whistles. She was lengthened, re-powered with brand new MTU 12V 4000 main engines, and fitted with new stabilisers, bow and stern thrusters, plus many other mechanical and electrical upgrades.
Lestralaur was also modified to accommodate a helicopter. She has a 5,000 nautical mile range to reach the most remote locations on the planet.
With accommodation for 10 guests, Lestralaur is now asking $7.5 million.
