Princess motor yacht Solaris sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 40.16 metre motor yacht Solaris, listed for sale with Princess Yachts Monaco, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in GRP by UK yard Princess Yachts International to RINA class, Solaris was delivered in 2014 as a luxury tri-deck motor yacht and went on to be nominated for a 2015 World Superyacht Award. A sophisticated interior designed by Mark Berryman working closely with the owners to create a bespoke design, offers comfortable accommodation for 12 guests in six sumptuous cabins. The master suite is on the upper deck while a full-beam VIP suite is located on the main deck, with two doubles and two twin cabins below deck, all with en-suite facilities boasting heated floors.
The large main saloon has comfortable seating, a full entertainment system and today’s must-have feature — twin fold down sea balconies to port and starboard. There is also a separate dining area with formal seating for 10 guests.
Solaris has already earned her spurs as a successful charter yacht and has extensive deck areas to keep guests entertained at all times, including a shaded aft deck with stairs down to the swim platform. Up on the sun deck, the fun continues as guests can take their choice from relaxing on the sun pads and loungers, cooling off in the Jacuzzi, enjoying an al fresco cocktail at the bar or sampling one of the chef’s delights at the barbecue — all shaded by a retractable top when desired. Twin 2,937hp MTU engines power her to speeds of up to 19 knots and zero speed stabilisers are fitted.
Solaris was asking €12.9 million.
