71m Royal Denship superyacht Force Blue for sale

7 September 2023 • Written by Holly Overton

The 70.6-metre Royal Denship motor yacht Force Blue has been listed for sale with Fraser and Burgess ahead of her appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show. 

Force Blue first hit the water in 2002 as the 63.3-metre Big Roi, designed as a trawler-style expedition yacht, and has been refitted to varying degrees throughout her life. 

Force Blue is asking €29,500,000

Her most recent refit, completed in 2022, was carried out at Lusben and sought to maintain her explorer characteristics but tone down her workboat looks. Much of the work centred around a seven-metre stern extension to allow for a large wrap-around swim platform. The main deck was extended in the process as well.

Guests arriving are greeted by a large main saloon with a separate dining room that doubles as a conference space. Accommodation is for 12 guests across six cabins with the master suite positioned on a dedicated owner's deck with three separate seating areas and a private terrace. An elevator serves all decks.

H2 Yacht Design handled the exterior re-design while Italian architect Michele Bonan conceived her new interior.

Other highlights of this explorer yacht for sale include a black-tiled spa, massage room and a heated table used for certain treatments, a cinema and a large bridge deck bar, BBQ and dining area that converts into a disco.

Large toys and tenders are stored in the bow and she currently carries an 8.8-metre Pascoe tender, a 9.5-metre NorthStar tender, and an 8.5-metre Bat tender. 

Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar engines delivering a range of 8,000 nautical miles at 14 knots and 11,400 nautical miles at 10 knots.  She is RINA class and MCA compliant with a strong charter record.

Force Blue will be available to view at the Monaco Yacht Show with price on application.
