A call to Jim Acher at Ocean Independence brings more details of his new central listing, the 28.7m motor yacht Ayouchka (ex-Princess Natasha). A classic, pedigree yacht, she has, says Jim, "Literally been refitted from top to toe, now ticking all the boxes and looking nothing like her former self."
Ayouchka was built by Benetti in 1975 and over €2.4 million was spent on her comprehensive refit in 2007, 2008 and 2009, including new paint, decks, interior, electrics, plumbing and much more. This superyacht accommodates 10 guests in a master suite with two double and two twin staterooms plus six crew in three cabins. Cruising at 10 knots gives her a range of 1,500 nautical miles and she's on the market asking €2.75 million.
