July 21st 2009 saw this column report the sale of Benetti's 49.95m motor yacht Cuor Di Leone with Steve Doyle, owner of the Boston office of Northrop and Johnson, acting for the buyer and now I learn that she's back on the market. Intrigued, I contact Steve to find out more.
The reason's simple, he says: the owner is now ready for a larger yacht. Meanwhile, under his ownership, this superyacht recently completed her five year Lloyds class inspection and has been fitted with new carpets, A/C upgrades and new satellite communication systems. She's also scheduled for a fresh paint job this September. Launched as Lionheart in 1999 and refitted in 2005, Cuor Di Leone sleeps 12 guests in five staterooms and is now asking $21.9 million.
