The 28.5-metre motor yacht Darwin has been sold with Deniz Kaymaz at Northrop & Johnson representing both buyer and seller.
Delivered in 2013 by Turkish builder Su Marine, Darwin is described as a true gentleman's yacht and is built from a cold-moulded wooden hull and superstructure, reinforced with fibre cloth and epoxy resin. Darwin's design and naval architecture are the work of Taka Yachts, with an interior by Su Marine's in-house designers. She joined the brokerage market, fresh from a number of mechanical updates, in the summer of 2022, having completed her 10-year RINA survey in 2021.
Accommodation is for up to eight guests in four cabins, including an owner’s suite amidships with a king-size bed and walk-in wardrobe, a vanity table and hull ports. Darwin’s three additional cabins comprise one VIP with a double bed, one double cabin and one twin. All cabins have solid teak soles. There are quarters for a crew of three.
The yacht’s elegant and cosy main saloon is illuminated by large windows and a centred skylight, with a black-out curtains providing shade when required. Set against homely bookshelves, this teak-decked space also features a settee and formal dining table for up to eight guests. Further aft is a fully-equipped galley with a multipurpose bar for both morning coffees or late night cocktails.
Elsewhere, the aft deck offers entry to the main saloon through sliding doors while stairs lead up to the flybridge which houses a 4.7 metre tender alongside plentiful comfortable seating.
Twin V8-2000 diesel engines provide a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.
Darwin was asking €4,250,000.
