Owning a luxury yacht doesn't have to cost you hundreds of millions. BOAT takes a closer look at five standout superyachts currently listed for sale for less than €5 million...
Builder: Golden Yachts
O'Pati is the newest entry on this list, having joined the market just last month. Designed inside and out by Giorgio Vafiadis (with naval architecture by Hydro Tec), this superyacht's sporty exterior is backed up by triple KaMeWa waterjets and three 2,000hp MTU diesels, giving her an approximate top speed of 23 knots. Her open-plan saloon sports a bar to port, dining table to starboard and ample seating forward.
Built as a commercial vessel designed for the North Sea, La Perla was acquired by a Croatian owner in 2011 who saw her charter potential and rebuilt her into a luxury yacht. In fact, the only remaining original piece of equipment is the main engine. Amenities include a top deck Jacuzzi spa tub, a bathing platform, multiple sundecks and a charming al fresco saloon. A recently refitted interior (completed in 2023) sees her able to comfortably accommodate up to 26 guests.
Builder: Sunreef Yachts
This distinctive-looking catamaran was designed entirely in house. Of note is the main saloon, with an open-plan layout and ceiling height of 3.4 metres that provides the space and airy feel expected of a monohull. Accommodation is across five cabins, including a main deck owner's cabin which offers 180-degree views and a walk-in rain shower. Meanwhile, the galley houses a grill and pizza oven that can be set up on the aft deck.
Builder: Fipa Italiana Yachts
Princess L's exterior is owed to Maiora while her clean, contemporary interiors were styled by Roberto del Re. In an unusual move for her size, the yacht has a dedicated dining room found just forward of the main saloon. Another highlight is the full-beam owner's cabin which boasts his and hers bathrooms that share a spa bath with a shower. The yacht benefitted from a refit in 2018 and also has a "very good charter record", according to the broker.
One of the yard's Maxi Drogo 105 models, Ale.Mia was designed by Gianluca Caputi with "outdoor living" in mind. Her foredeck is split between two large shaded sunpads and an additional al fresco dining space, while a generous swim platform allows easy access to the water. Indoors, a full-beam master cabin benefits from ample natural light through large windows and features a dedicated vanity and en suite.
