Immaculately maintained by the owner and a proven charter yacht, IL SOLE is a 1476 11" (45m) custom-built Benetti delivered in 1994. Boasting the Italian shipyard’s renowned ‘Made in Italy’ stamp of quality and craftsmanship throughout, the luxurious interior hails from the design boards of famed studio Candy & Candy.
Notable features include a sky lounge theatre with HD film projector, an on-deck Jacuzzi and an al fresco solarium platform forward. Welcoming up to 12 guests in six cabins, the interior layout has been ergonomically designed for the ultimate in convenience and relaxation. Alongside a master suite, guests are accommodated in a VIP stateroom, two double cabins and three twin cabins. An enthusiastic crew of 9 are on hand to provide a seamless experience from dawn to dusk.
IL SOLE represents a highly attractive sales opportunity for a discerning owner with an eye for detail. A displacement steel hull gives the yacht solid seaworthiness. An aluminium superstructure and teak deck provide lightweight style. IL SOLE underwent an extensive refit in 2012. This was followed by a new paint job in 2018, and a €2.7 million refit in 2019. The latter included the installation of new stabilisers, which further reduce roll motion and increase onboard guest comfort, both when underway and zero speed for when at anchor.
For fun on the water, the yacht comes equipped with two Jetskis, scuba diving gear, numerous inflatable toys and a tender. A sophisticated casino roulette table is on hand for evening entertainment, while the bright and airy sky lounge is the ideal place to enjoy a film on the HD Film Projector. The AV/IT system includes Kaleidescape and Blu-ray Vault. Fully equipped with a gym and exercising equipment, IL SOLE also contains three separate areas to enjoy al fresco dining, making the most of the yacht’s glorious surroundings.
Powered by two new Caterpillar 3508 with 2230 bhp diesel engines and propelled by twin screw propellers, IL SOLE is capable of a top speed of 15 knots. She has a comfortable range of 2,000 nautical miles when cruising at 12 knots, supported by two new diesel generators (85 kw each).
