Denison Yacht Sales have announced the sale of the classic Bannenberg-designed superyacht Lionwind, built by Feadship. Glynn Smith of Denison Yacht Sales represented the seller, with Vesa Kaukonen of KK Superyachts having brought the buyer. Lionwind’s last reported asking price was set at €3,950,000.
Launched in 1983 as Azteca, Lionwind is one of two identical yachts with sister ship Paraiso still retaining her original name today. Smith reports that the yacht will now head to northern Europe for a major refit and restoration project. “Lionwind is an iconic vintage Feadship and deserves a new home where she can be refitted and then serve another 33 years on our oceans,” he says. “We really look forward to following the next chapters in this yacht's colourful life.”
