Sailing superyacht Billy Budd II now for sale with Fraser and Nissim Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Billy Budd II was built in aluminium by Dutch superyacht yard Royal Huisman to a design by Judel/Vrolijk and delivered in 1994 as a sloop rigged yacht. An interior by Pieter Beeldsnijder accommodates eight guests in a master suite and two double cabins plus two Pullman berths.
Professionally maintained since new, she had a major refit in 2012 when most of her technical systems were overhauled or replaced and she has been a fixture on the regatta scene for many years. A fast hull, carbon fibre mast and spars with modern sails ensure her credentials as a strong, safe and reliable world cruising yacht.
Under power, a 360hp MTU engine gives her a range of 2,500 nautical miles at 11 knots. Lying in Lavagna, Italy, Billy Budd II is asking €2,950,000.
