News now from Stuart Larsen at Fraser Yachts that he's closed on the sale of Benetti’s 50m motor yacht Taiba with Jimmy Broddesson at SuperYachtsLondon acting for the buyer.

One of the yard's popular Golden Bay Series yachts, Taiba was built in 1997 with a steel hull and alloy superstructure and refitted in 2012. Her attractive exterior lines were drawn by Stefano Natucci, and she features an extremely large flybridge as well as a heli pad.

Sleeping 12 guests in a large owners' suite, a VIP and four spacious guest suites, Taiba has a classic, timeless interior by Francois Zuretti.

A pair of 2,226hp MTU engines produce a cruising speed of 16-18 knots and a transatlantic range of 3,000 nautical miles.

Taiba was asking €9.5 million.
