Merle Wood & Associates has listed the 60.3m motoryacht, Mia Elise II, for sale. She is currently based in the Western Mediterranean and has come onto the market with an asking price of $47.9 million. At the time of her delivery, in 2012, Mia Elise II was the largest Trinity Yachts build ever delivered, but has since been surpassed by the yard’s 74m project, Cocoa Bean, which was delivered to her owner in 2014.
Mia Elise II, formerly Areti, is a semi-displacement all-aluminium motoryacht that was built for a discerning owner at Trinity Yachts’ facility in New Orleans. At 916 gross tons, her interior volume is marginally under the 993.9 gross ton average for the current fleet of 57.5 – 62.5m motoryachts on the water, but this volume is still essentially that of two 45-50m motoryachts.
Mia Elise II
She has a lavish, award-winning interior by Fort Lauderdale-based Patrick Knowles, featuring a fine selection of woods – Madrone, Redwood Burl and Honduras Mahogany – and a wide-ranging selection of stones for an opulent finish.
Main dining salon
She has accommodation for up to 12/14 guests over six/seven cabins, comprising a full beam master on its own private deck, a VIP cabin forward of the sky lounge, four double guest cabins on the lower deck and an en-suite office forward with a pull-out sofa that can double up as a seventh cabin. There is also a guest elevator accessing all three decks.
Formulated as a true holiday retreat, the sun deck includes an air-conditioned gym, a sauna and steam room, a large Jacuzzi and sunbathing areas. In terms of performance, she is fitted with two Caterpillar 3516C HD engines that allow for a maximum speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 3,100 nautical miles at an economical speed of 12.5 knots.
