The 26.82 metre Sanlorenzo motor yacht Squalo (ex-Akula) has been sold in an off-market sale, with Boomer Jousma and Vittoria Santarone at Italian Yacht Group representing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Sanlorenzo to a design by Officina Italiana Design, Squalo was delivered in 2018 as an SL86 model. Accommodation for eight guests comprises two double and two twin cabins, with the twins both able to convert into double cabins if needed. Each cabin on Squalo is en suite, with a spacious layout and modern entertainment system.
A sleek, elegant main saloon is at the heart of the vessel and features a large lounge seating area with a bar and pop-up television. Ample natural light is thrust onto the open-feeling interior space via frequent large windows. A full dining table is positioned forward of the main saloon, perfect for hosting formal meals.
A floating staircase connects the main saloon with the flybridge above. The flybridge is expanded into a generous sunbathing and entertaining area, thanks to a tender garage at the transom and hydraulic lift swim platform. An al fresco dining table for up to ten guests is found forward with shelter offered by a hardtop just aft of the cockpit.
In addition, the bow acts as a living space with sofas, a table, sunbathing cushions and a removable sail cover awning. Her top speed is 30 knots and her power comes from two 1,947hp MTU 12V2000M94 diesel engines.
Squalo was asking $5,500,000.
