Sanlorenzo Motor Yacht La Desiree Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24 metre motor yacht La Desiree has been sold with both buyer and seller represented by Hakan Altinel at Altinel Yachts.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Sanlorenzo, La Desiree is RINA classed and was delivered in 2012 as an SL82 model. Her interior, designed in satin-finished walnut by Franco and Anna Della Role, accommodates up to eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins, all with entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for three crew.
The saloon has large windows allowing daylight to stream in, while her lounge area comes with U-shaped seating upholstered in blue fabric, a coffee table and an entertainment centre including a 40-inch Samsung television screen and a Bose stereo surround sound system. Forward is a formal dining area seating eight guests, while further forward still is the galley with new appliances installed. The galley also has a table and banquette seating for sociable breakfasts and casual snacks.
The popularity of the SL82 model is enhanced by the extensive deck areas offering plenty of space for al fresco entertaining, including a sheltered cockpit, which is the ideal spot for evening cocktails before dinner. Her spacious flybridge offers ample seating, a table and bar, all sheltered by a custom Bimini top. Twin 1,275hp Caterpillar diesel engines allow a cruising speed of 22 knots, topping out at 26 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
La Desiree was asking €1,980,000.
