Valdettaro sailing yacht Manutara sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 34.62 metre sailing yacht Manutara, listed for sale by Georges Bourgoignie at Fraser, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Davide Silvello at Dave Superyachts.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Valdettaro to a design by Laurent Giles, Manutara was delivered in 1994 and most recently refitted in 2015. A high-volume interior designed by Studio Garroni accommodates 10 guests in five cabins compromising a full beam master suite and four twins convertible to doubles and all cabins have entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en suite shower facilities.
The pilothouse has a large covered cockpit with roll-up weather screens that provide protection for the outdoor dining and entertainment area, which features a large teak dining table for ten, and lounging tables with two comfortable U-shaped seating areas enjoying panoramic 360- degree views. A wet bar with a fridge and bar area is forward.
The main saloon takes advantage of the full 26' beam, thus providing a very spacious entertainment and dining area. Here, there is custom cabinetry, new carpeting throughout and an entertainment centre including a 60-inch LCD flatscreen television set and a stereo surround sound system. There is a large, circular settee with a central round coffee table and a corner desk in this area. To starboard is the dining area, with a varnished cherry-inlaid dining table that expands to comfortably seat ten at a custom leather banquette. Under power, her top speed is 11.5 knots and her power comes from a 425hp MTU 12V183 diesel engine.
Manutara was asking $1,850,000.
