50-metre Dutch-built motor yacht SOLINDA is an excellent all-round cruiser, with Feadship pedigree, multiple outdoor spaces, and luxurious cabins to sleep ten guests
Launched by Dutch boatbuilder Feadship in 1990, SOLINDA is an exceptional motor yacht that has been adapted beautifully and consistently over the years. The yacht is built with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Up to 10 guests can be accommodated onboard in comfort, and she also has accommodation for 11 crew members, including the ship's captain. She is powered by 2 Caterpillar Inc engines, which give her a top speed of 15 knots.
Solinda’s most extensive refit in recent years was in 2014, which took place under the supervision and design team of Patrick Knowles. The owner and Patrick collaborated to bring a modern feel whilst keeping the wonderful Dutch pedigree she has to offer. The interior speaks for itself with beautiful woods, fabrics and attention to detail throughout. This refit resulted in many accolades, including being named a finalist in the 2016 World Superyacht Awards. She was refitted again in 2022.
The main saloon features chic furniture with light soft furnishings. As with many areas of the yacht, the living space offers surround-sound music controlled by iPad. Entering via manual sliding doors there is a sofa, four armchairs, and a glass-walled wine cellar.
The formal dining room is located forward of the main salon and offers seating for 10 guests. The 250-bottle custom built wine fridge is a highlight, and a perfect divide between the main salon and dining areas while still offering an open feeling. There is a 65” Samsung Smart TV, for entertainment or for presentations during business meetings on board.
On the indoor-outdoor upper deck there are armchairs, coffee tables and a television, as well as a fridge and iced box for serving drinks. Through the sliding doors, there is a large al fresco dining table for up to 12 guests, with an awning to provide shade if required.
The palatial main deck full beam master suite has a king-size bed, a private office, huge walk-in closet and his and hers bathrooms. There are also three luxurious cabins, which can sleep up to eight guests in total and can be reached using a wooden staircase that leads to a small hallway.
On the port and starboard side aft you’ll find the two VIP cabins Capri and Portofino, both of which have queen sized beds. The twin cabin Havana is situated on the port side forward, and has two single beds with drawers underneath. Forward on the starboard is another guest cabin with a queen-sized bed, mirroring the setup of the aft guest cabins.
The yacht’s exterior is just as impressive, with multiple teak decks ensuring there is plenty of space for sunbathing, entertaining and dining. The main deck is protected by the wind and accessed by a wide gangway, a perfect spot to enjoy the shade on a hot day.
The sky lounge on the upper deck has a bar with three stools. It’s the perfect area for relaxation and entertainment, featuring a games table, a large flat screen TV with surround-sound entertainment system linked by Internet and an iPad controller.
Last but not least is the teak sundeck, which boasts large comfortable sun pads and lounge chairs, a Jacuzzi for seven guests. Once the tender is removed, another huge area on the stern of the sundeck is available for guests to enjoy open-air activities or for parties. Under the antennas is the gym equipment in an open and well-ventilated area.
SOLINDA comes with a Castoldi Diesel Jet 23 280kW tender, as well as a well-stocked toybox including two Seabobs, two Yamaha VX Deluxe Cruiser Jet Skis, an inflatable kayak, snorkelling and fishing equipment and various other inflatable towables.
