The 53.4-metre superyacht Kinta listed for sale by IYC has been sold, with Kevin Bonnie and Mark Elliott representing the seller and Scott Jones of IYC Monaco introducing the buyer. Photo: Benoit DonneBuilt by Turkish yard Turquoise Yachts in 2008 with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Kinta features naval architecture from the yard, exterior design from Caliari Superyacht Inc and elegant interior design by Jean Guy Verges. The 53.4-metre yacht has since undergone two refits, the first of which occurred in 2010-2011 and the second and most recent having occurred in winter 2017-2018 at Palumbo Superyachts' refit facility in Italy while she was still for sale. On board, she accommodates 12 guests across six staterooms (one master, one VIP, three double and one twin). Utilising the entire beam, the owner’s private suite is expansive and features floor-to-ceiling windows which lend even more light to an already airy space. A centerline main bed, oversized walk-in wardrobe, and direct forward deck access make for a luxurious time aboard Kinta.
Kinta also features an elevator and the main staircase which connect all guest decks for ease of access. In her salon, Kinta houses a large communal area thanks to her modern design and more floor to ceiling windows. From her salon, guests can access the oversized main aft deck directly. On her upper deck, guests will find a formal dining set up, an additional lounge, a pantry, and wheelhouse.
