Viudes motor yacht Pride sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 45 metre motor yacht Pride, listed for sale by Pedro Millet at Yacht Marine, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Arcon Yachts.
Initially commissioned to be built by Spanish yard Viudes Yachts, her steel hull and aluminium superstructure were completed in Barcelona before she was shipped to Mondomarine in Italy for final fit out of electronics, teak decking, interiors and paintwork and she was launched in 2013.
Lloyd's classed and MCA compliant, the design offers very large exterior spaces, including a voluminous sundeck and beach club. The vast sundeck is ideal for al fresco entertaining, relaxation and dining, with a full wet bar, fridge, ice maker, and Teppanyaki grill along with ample seating and lounging areas.
Her classical style interior has rich cherry wood paneling and flooring contrasted with beige upholstery and she can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins. These consist of a full-beam master suite with two side balconies, a full-beam VIP suite, two doubles and two twins, all with full en suite facilities.
The wheelhouse was installed by Italian company Domo Systems, which also installed the entertainment systems, controlled throughout by iPads. The bridge is integrated with touch screens, while reverse angled windows offer 280 degrees of visibility and wing stations are situated on both side decks.
Power comes from twin Caterpillar C32 engines giving a top speed of 14 knots, a cruising speed of 12.5 knots and a range of 5,200 nautical miles at ten knots.
Pride was asking €17,500,000.
