Turquoise expedition yacht Tivoli sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 27.61 metre motor yacht Tivoli, listed for sale by Stuart Larsen and Michael Selter at Fraser, has been sold with Q7 Marine Consultancy introducing the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium by Turkish yard Turquoise to a design by Vripack, Tivoli was delivered in 2001 as a long-range expedition yacht. An interior in hand-rubbed raised mahogany panelling accommodates six guests in a master suite and two twins, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities. Although she can be owner-operated, there are quarters for up to three crew.
The open plan saloon is light, bright and airy as a result of large windows and to port are two settees forming an L-shaped seating arrangement around a mahogany coffee table. To starboard is an entertainment centre featuring a 25 inch LG television screen and a Bose Lifestyle stereo surround sound system. Forward is a dining area with seating for eight guests and storage lockers for glassware, china and cutlery.
The aft deck is open and well laid out, with a wet bar, fridge and ice maker to port along with comfortable seating and an oval dining table for eight guests. Up on the flybridge, three helm chairs are positioned at the central steering station, while there is a bar to port and an L-shaped dining area to starboard. Three steps lead down to the Jacuzzi deck which converts to a large sun pad. A fixed stainless steel framed Bimini top protects the raised area from the vagaries of the weather. Twin 300hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 10 knots and a range of 3,500 nautical miles.
Tivoli was asking $1,500,000.
