Worth Avenue Yachts announced the sale of the 65.23-metre Codescasa-built Double Down, with James Greenwood and Ralph Raulin representing the buyer and both Jack Robertson of HMY and Peter Thompson with Thompson, Westwood & White representing the seller. Both MCA compliant and built to Lloyd’s register, Double Down was delivered to her second owner (she was first sold before her delivery) in 2010 by Italian yard Codecasa. Formerly named Lady Lau by her previous owner and Hong Kong tycoon, Joseph Lau, Double Down underwent a refit in 2016. As part of her refit, she was repainted, her exterior was restyled, her main engines given a five-year platinum plus extension of the warranty and her interiors were restyled by designer Evan K. Marshall. Whether Double Down is hired for charter or used privately determines how many guests the superyacht can welcome onboard. Able to accommodate 12 across seven cabins for charter operations and 20 while out for private use, this superyacht actually contains an additional two guest cabins with all decks accessed by elevator. Resting forward on the owner’s private deck is a master stateroom, complete with fine artwork, private cinema, gym, and study. Additionally, up to 20 crew members can be accommodated on board at any given time. Flying the Cayman Islands' flag, Double Down’s displacement-style steel hull reaches a cruise speed of around 12 knots and a maximum speed of 17. Two CAT 3516B marine diesel engines, with a total of 4894 hp, power the superyacht and with a 6000 nm range, she’s a true global cruiser capable of taking her new owners wherever they may please - without having to refuel. At the time of her sale, Double Down was listed for $44,500,000.Interested in seeing more? Take a virtual tour of all the impressive spaces aboard Double Down here.
