The 72.2 metre Delta Marine superyacht Albatross has been sold DEC. 2022 just 11 weeks after she entered the brokerage market.
The 2,066GT motor yacht is one of the largest yachts built in the United States and sports an exterior by the award-winning Espen Øino. She is constructed from steel and aluminium, delivered in 2016 and has been used only privately since her launch.
Albatross is a born explorer with an extensive range of 7,400 nautical miles paired with a helicopter landing pad for guests looking to explore ashore and a large full-beam tender garage. Shell doors open on either side of the vessel and the space transforms into a beach club with a bar once the toys and tenders are launched.
The helipad is found on the bridge deck aft and serves as a boat deck on passage with cranes for launch and recovery. On the same level is a second, more informal al fresco dining area accompanied by a chef station, a BBQ and oven and a raised eight-person Jacuzzi.
Her interior is the work of Francois Zuretti and places an emphasis on natural materials. The main deck offers an expansive entertainment area inside and out, with a shaded al fresco dining table and sit-up bar on the aft deck, and a vast interior lounge. Forward is a formal dining room that seats up to 16 guests and glass sliding doors can seal off the main saloon from the dining room as needed.
Albatross can accommodate up to 12 guests in six suites, two of which can be found on the owner’s deck and four on the main deck with a separate guest lounge. An elevator services all decks while further accommodation sleeps a crew of 18 and a staff of four.
The owner’s suite is aft-facing and benefits from full-height windows, a lounge area, his-and-hers bathrooms and a shared walk-in wardrobe. The highlight though is a private terrace with a raised Jacuzzi, daybed and dining table providing a more intimate setting for meals on board.
A pair of Caterpillar 2,575hp diesel engines give Albatross a top speed of 16 knots.
Albatross was asking $95,000,000.
