The 26.2-metre Extra motor yacht Mini K has been sold to an Italian client and renamed Soney following a major refit. The six-month project was completed at Palumbo Superyachts’ shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
The motor yacht is the first hull in the 86 Fast series from Extra Yachts, part of Palumbo Superyachts, and was delivered in 2019 with exteriors courtesy of Guida Design. Following the refit, Soney’s appearance has been enhanced with a chalk-grey finish and her teak decking refreshed, alongside substantial engineering updates and a restructured layout.
Soney can accommodate up to eight people across four cabins, including one VIP cabin and a full-beam, 6.6-metre master cabin. The major modification involves a partition that has been inserted between the helm station and the saloon. Access to the crew area has since been relocated next to the helm station and concealed by the new bar counter.
Engineering works included the replacement of all generators, watermakers, pumps and air-conditioning system, as well as resetting the engine hours to zero. All electrical and hydraulic handling parts, such as the gangway and the transformer, were inspected and repainted. The stabilisation system has also been replaced by a modern carbon fin stabiliser system, increasing comfort when underway and at anchor.
Powered by three Volvo Penta 735kW engines and an “innovative” IPS1350 system, Soney can reach top speeds of 30 knots while still providing “an extremely silent cruising experience”.
According to BOATPro, Extra Yachts is also expected to deliver an Extra X88 unit this month with another two yachts scheduled for delivery next year, including an Extra X96 and Extra X78 model.Read More/First look on board Extra X99 Fast model Mini K
