After just 51 days on the market, IYC has confirmed the in-house sale of the 49.95-metre Benetti motor yacht Yolo (ex: Taiba), finalised by Leo Jordil on behalf of the seller and Michel Chryssicopoulos on behalf of the buyer, who was introduced by Konstantinos Bogeas of Argo Maritime. The all-Italian displacement yacht sports in-house naval architecture with Stefano Natucci exterior lines and interiors by Luxury Projects and Zuretti Interior Design.
Yolo, from the Benetti Golden Bay Series, was completed in 1997 and extensively refitted in 2012. With an interior volume of 496 GT, Yolo comfortably sleeps up to 12 guests in six well-appointed cabins comprised of a full-beam master suite, a VIP cabin and four further guest suites – all of which feature en-suite bathrooms embellished with marble. An additional crew of 11 can cater to her guest’s needs.
A light, cream-toned colour palette with dark, glossy woodwork runs throughout her interior, creating a sophisticated setting for guests to enjoy. Her principal indoor entertainment areas include the main salon, furnished with a formal dining table for all 12 guests, and a laid-back sky lounge with an elegant marble bar.
The tri-deck yacht Yolo, built to ABS classification, offers various outdoor spaces for her guests to soak up the sun, dine al fresco or simply enjoy the view across her main deck, upper deck and a spacious flybridge.
For the more adventurous guests, Yolo also provides sufficient space to store an array of water toys and other leisure amenities.
Equipped with twin MTU 12 V 396 TE94 engines diesel engines with 2,262 hp each, the motor yacht Yolo with an aluminium superstructure and a steel hull cruises at 16 knots and reaches a top speed of 18 knots. At an economical cruising speed, she has a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles.
The final asking price of Yolo during the time she was still listed as a yacht for sale is unknown and could only be solicited on application.
