Motor yacht Attila V sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel and aluminium by French yard Chantier Naval de Marseille to a design by Michel Bigoin, she was delivered in 1989 with her last refit in 2005. John Munford brought his familiar classic design to the interior which accommodates 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite, a double and two twins, all with en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for a captain and four crew.
Cabins and the public areas are unexpectedly large, meaning that she could easily cover her running costs as a charter yacht. The spacious main saloon has large settees to port and starboard and an entertainment centre including a large television screen and there is formal dining forward with seating for 10 guests. A well appointed galley has a large freestanding table and chairs in the centre, making it ideal for casual breakfasts and snacks through the day.
The aft deck is geared towards al fresco entertaining and dining with built in upholstered bench seating, a table and occasional chairs. The sun deck is dedicated to sun worshippers, with an array of sun pads and sun loungers, while the aft bridge deck is used for tender stowage.
Twin 750hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a range of 1,200 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 14 knots.
Lying in France, Attila V was asking €350,000.
