Yarrow Motor Yacht Sealion Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The venerable 30.14 metre canoe-stern motor yacht Sealion has been sold with the buyer and seller represented by Hakan Altinel at Altinel Yachts.
Built in steel and aluminium by British yard Yarrow to a design by G.L. Watson, she was delivered in 1935 with many refits since, most notably a complete rebuild in 2008. Her mahogany lined interior has accommodation for up to nine guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite, a double and a twin, all with entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. Crew accommodation for four staff and maintenance facilities are located forward while all guest cabins are aft, enabling crew tasks to be carried out without disturbing the guests.
As well as the interior lounge and dining room, Sealion has an al fresco dining table on the aft deck which is large enough to seat eight. On the deck above, a huge expanse of cushioned sun pads provides ample space for lounging and enjoys elevated views.
Her top speed is 12 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 232hp Rolls Royce C6FTM diesel engines.
The asking price of Sealion has been withheld.
