Designed with long-range capability in mind, the Classic 108 has a fuel capacity of over 50,000 litres which, the yard claimed, would enable it to cross the Atlantic and back on a single tank of fuel.

The 350GT interior has been described as “luminous and fresh” by the yard. The yacht has enough accommodation for a total of 10 guests in five cabins including a main deck master that takes full advantage of the 8.3 metre beam. The four remaining guest cabins sit on the lower deck alongside the crew accommodation.

She preserves her sleek look from any perspective and presents a long-range, superbly equipped, strong and sturdy truly capable explorer yacht,” he said.
