New superyachts on SuperyachtTimes.com - 13/2008
Marco Polo is built for long distance travelling without giving up any of the comfort demanded by island hopping and coastal cruising and in port or at anchor stays. Great emphasis is put on seakeeping, self-sustainability, comfort and safe and cost efficient operation of highly thought out and refined operational systems. A single Caterpillar 3512B main engine delivers 1950 hp, which gives her a cruising speed of 13 knots, with a range of 3.300nm. Her Schottle bow unit and stern thruster makes her a dream to slot in and out of crowded ports.
The yacht features an owner's deck, with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room on the bridge deck, making for ultimate owner's privacy, space and comfort. 4 double/twin en suite cabins are situated on the lower deck, one of which has been arranged as a gym (but is easily converted into a guest cabin). There is a very large salon and dining room on the main deck, as well as a very spacious galley. Marco Polo is offered for sale through her central agent Ocean Independence.
