The iconic 85.1m Solandge has had a €6 million price reduction whilst undergoing a central agency change. She is now listed at a reduced asking price of €169 million with Moran Yacht & Ship.
Solandge, built by the German superyacht giants Lurssen, was delivered in October 2013. She has a steel hull with an aluminium superstructure and amasses 2,899 gross tons over six decks – an interior volume equivalent to around six 40-50m superyachts.
The exterior lines are product of Espen Øino, whose superyacht design work has been focussed on the larger LOA ranges to-date, with an average project LOA of 75m. The Monaco-based studio is closely affiliated with Lurssen, which accounts for 60.5 per cent of its design work. Projects with renowned Espen Øino exteriors include 155m Al Said, 140m Ocean Victory, 95.2m Kismet, 78.4m TV and 77m Silver Fast.
Solandge made commendable appearances at the 2014 and 2015 Monaco Yacht Shows, picking up the 'La Belle Classe Superyachts' and 'Best Exterior' awards at the former. She will also make an appearance at the 2016 Palm Beach International Boat Show from 17 – 20 March.
With architecture from Dölker + Voges and styling by Aileen Rodriguez, Solandge’s unique interior accommodates 16 guests over eight staterooms, comprising of an owner’s master suite – with sweeping 180 degree views – a VIP suite, five double staterooms and a twin stateroom.
Behind the glamour of the two Jacuzzis, swimming pool, sauna, fully functional gym, state-of-the-art-cinema and nine-person elevator, are twin Caterpillar 3516 engines (5,364 HP) adding functionality to her form. She can obtain a truly globetrotting range of 6,000 nautical miles at a 15-knot cruising speed and reach a maximum speed of 17.5 knots.

Marketing maestro Tim Delaney’s thought-provoking speech at the 2014 Global Superyacht Forum promoted ‘superyachts as brands’ with a focus on Solandge’s profile in particular – not just re-affirming her position as one of world’s most talked about yachts, but substantiating the claim that there is far more to this deal than the yacht itself.
