Charter & Charter tell us they they have listed the converted 30m tug Vervece for sale. Built by the Benetti shipyard back in 1964, Vervece has recently completed a total refit at the Palumbo yard in Italy.

Accommodating eight guests in four cabins, and with three crew cabins, the interior has been brought right up to date and offers extremely comfortable accommodation and communal spaces throughout.

According to the Italian yard, Vervece is virtually a new build, with parts of her hull changed and a new superstructure built. The yacht's engine room was rebuilt and new equipment installed including engines, generators and an air-conditioning system. The original single shaft propeller was replaced with twin props. Vervece is now powered by twin 1,000hp (746kW) Cummins engines giving a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at this speed.

She is currently lying in southern Italy, and is asking €3.85 million.
