Istros is a classic yacht which was delivered in 1954 by the Dutch shipyard De Vries Lentsch and has been bought by her new owner as a yacht restoration project. After being completely dismantled, a restoration project was started by Laurent Giles Naval architects and H2 Yacht Design in 2013 where her interiors and plumbing and wiring were removed but this was paused before it could be completed.
With a steel hull and a teak deck, Istros was built to an in-house design by the shipyard. After her restoration, Istros will accommodate up to nine guests across five staterooms. Currently, a crew of 15 can be accommodated for on board and her cabins consist of one master stateroom, three twins and one single room.
Her former interior included two lounge areas with coffee tables, a sofa and a round dining table, with ample light provided by numerous windows in the living and dining spaces. On deck, there is space for a second dining table for al-fresco entertaining, deck chairs and a sofa for relaxing on board.
Currently, she is powered by twin diesel 570 engines giving her a top speed of 13.5 knots and a cruising speed of 11.5 knots.
At the time of sale, Istros was listed at an asking price of €1,250,000.
