Toby Maclaurin at Ocean Independence in Switzerland tells me he's closed on the sale of the 49.9m motor yacht Mar with Jimmy Frangi at SSH Maritime representing the buyer.

Mar was designed by Progetti & Associati and built in steel and aluminium by Ortona Navi with delivery in 2008. Weighing in at 591GRT and Germanischer Lloyd’s classed and Malta Commercial certified, Mar can accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms plus 11 crew members. The accommodation consists of an impressive master suite on the main deck, a VIP stateroom, two doubles and two twins and all staterooms have full en suite facilities. The interior is modern and stylish, with large windows offering plenty of natural light to the interior.

The ample aft deck has a large settee and al fresco dining for 12 while a large sun deck offers an eight person Jacuzzi and plentiful sunbathing areas. Twin 1,575hp Caterpillar diesels give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a cruising range of 3,800 nautical miles.

Mar was asking €13.5 million.
