Ouranos has been sold in an in-house deal by Michel Chryssicopoulos of IYC. The 45m motoryacht is currently based in Marina Flisvos, Greece, and had a final asking price of €11.5 million.
Ouranos, a Nadara 45 tri-deck, is a fully custom planing vessel that is built to RINA class and features the entire design work of its builder, The Italian Sea Group. The GRP construction was launched in Massa, Italy, in 2012. Fortuitously, the sale of 45m Ouranos comes as the previous owner took delivery of his new, upgraded vessel, 50m Ouranos, in June, avoiding what may have been an unfavourable stint as a multiple-yacht owner.
The 460 gross ton build, which will be renamed Ipanemas, offers accommodation over six comfortable suites for up to 14 guests, comprising a master suite, VIP suite, two doubles and two twins with Pullman berths. IYC stated that the yacht is one of the most successful charter yachts in the Eastern Mediterranean – with an interior layout that is primed for both charter and private use – and will remain on the firm’s charter roster.
With a 24-knot high speed, powered by her twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 engines, her performance on the water is admirable, but her range of 1,500 nautical miles at 11 knots, or 600 nautical miles at her 21-knot cruising speed, certainly makes her more adept at short-range cruising. For added comfort on board, she is also fitted with Rodriquez SMS 2000 stabilisers.
The sale follows two high-pedigree sales made by IYC in the last several months. The firm sold Heesen’s 54.9m Serenity in April, which was asking €36 million at the time, and Feadship’s 52.1m Gravitas in May, which was asking $19.85 million.
