The 43.4m motoryacht Triple 8 has been listed for sale with Dennis Frederiksen from Fraser Yachts. She has been listed on the market with an asking price of $16 million.
Triple 8 was built with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure by Royal Denship in 2009. The exterior work and naval architecture was carried out by Netherlands-based Diana Yacht Design, while the interior work is a product of Michela Reverberi of Diana Yacht Design. She is able to accommodate 11 guests over a five-cabin layout, consisting of one large master suite, two large VIP cabins, one double cabin and a twin cabin with a foldaway Pullman bed.

She is fitted with two Caterpillar 3508B DITA engines, both of which have approximately 3,417 hours on the clock. She has generally cruised at around 9.5 knots, giving a realistic range of 5,000 nautical miles (with an emergency allowance of 15,000 litres). However, a drop to 7 knots would allow her to obtain a range in excess of 10,000 nautical miles.
She has a large fuel capacity of 77,800 litres. To put this into perspective, the average fuel capacity for active 40-45m motoryachts is 47,584 litres, so she is clearly adept at long-range cruising. This has evidently been utilised in the past as her voyage history shows cruises in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, USA (she had her five-year survey in 2013 at Rybovich), Fiji and Australia. She is currently making her way to the Singapore boat show from Sydney.
Royal Denship has launched nine yachts to date. Triple 8’s delivery in 2009 was the last in its fleet before the yard entered an extended period of financial consolidation. On 21 December 2015, a rebranded Royal Denship announced its continuation of yacht building with its latest project, a 42m explorer yacht, with delivery forecasted for 2017.
