Brokerage deal of the week: the 55m Amels superyacht Faribana V

Written by

Here we take a look at the What, Why, Where and Who of some of the best brokerage deals currently on the market. This week we explore the 54.5 metre superyacht Faribana V, currently listed for sale with Yacht & Villa International.

What is on offer?

Built by the Dutch shipyard Amels in 1998, the 54.5 metre superyacht Faribana V (ex: Sarafsa) features both interior and exterior design from the drawing boards of Andrew Winch. On board she accommodates up to 14 guests over seven spacious suites, including an expansive owner’s suite complete with a private exercise pool.

In regards to her performance, she is powered by twin CAT 1,650 hp engines which provide her with a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of over 4,000 nm at a speed of 12.4 knots.

Why do we think this is such a great deal?

Undertaking an extensive refit in 2012 which saw her enjoy a total refurbishment of her interior as well as an exterior paint job, Faribana V is in great condition, presenting a unique opportunity to purchase a high quality Amels vessel at a realistic price. Only ever used privately and originally commissioned by and delivered to a royal family, the combination of a classical interior, excellent deck spaces, and special features such as an elevator and a beauty salon, make her an interesting proposition for any prospective owner.

Although she has only been used as a private yacht throughout her lifetime, Faribana V has been maintained to MCA commercial standards so could be certified as a commercial vessel with ease.

Where is she right now?

Faribana V is currently located in Athens, Greece.

Faribana V is currently listed for sale by Yacht & Villa International at an asking price of €17,000,000. For more information or to make an enquiry, contact Mark Seaton directly at, or by telephone on +33 616 472 990.
