Delivered in 1993 by Peene-Werft, Leander G was built for Sir Donald Gosling, who welcomed a range of guests on board, including royalty. Sir Donald sold the yacht in 2016 and died in September last year at the age of 90.
Leander G was acknowledged as one of the great yachts of the 20th century and has cruised throughout the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and to every point in the Caribbean Sea over the last 20 years.
Leander G has had more than €25 million invested in upkeep under her current ownership, with both the 25 year and intermediary Lloyd's surveys completed in 2019. Other maintenance work includes upgrades to guest, crew and mechanical systems, as well as a full repaint carried out in 2018.
Since her delivery in 1993, Leander G has occasionally assumed the unofficial role of a royal yacht to senior members of the royal family. Leander G has hosted the Queen and Prince Philip on a tour of Great Britain and later hosted Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in the Caribbean.
Leander G's power comes from two 3,600hp Deutz-MWM SBV12M628 diesel engines for a top speed of 18.5 knots and a maximum cruising range of 8,000 nautical miles at 14.5 knots.
Leander G has accommodation for a total of 20 guests, including two owner suites with adjoining office and lounge areas.
