37.00 metres Classic Gentlemen  Displacement Motor Yacht

She is an historic yacht, with a great pedigree: I personally know her whole history, very well documented, I’ve plans and original pictures.  My grandfather managed her till the end of Eighties. I propose to a learned owner a philological restoration with great economical advantages.

37.00 metres Classic Displacement Motor Yacht built by the famous Picchiotti Shipyard in Viareggio, Italy in 1955.

She’s also an excellent Corporate Charter Yacht, she has huge deck space and a big guests capacity, in a lot of different size cabins. She have 3 doubles with shower room en-suite aft and 3 single cabins and 1  double bunked cabin forward, with 2 shower room

So now the total passenger capacity is 11 people in 7 cabins

It could be very easy to increase the passenger capacity up to 14 passengers, just with the addition of on Pullman bed in the 3 forward single cabin

This possibility could be very attractive for the Corporate Charter market, which is not limited to 12 passengers, like usually.

She was for a long time under French Flag, and of course compliant to the French Merchant Navy Regulation, this means that she can easily have a MCA certificate under United Kingdom Flag, to be totally Free Tax
