News at Imperial Yachts appears thick and fast either side of the Monaco Yacht Show. Last week, the brokerage firm was appointed co-central agents for 40.2m M/Y Solaris, alongside Princess Yachts Monaco, and this week, the firm has listed 47m M/Y Ariadna and 43.1m M/Y Elsea for sale – all of which will be on display at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show from 28th September – 1st October.

Imperial Yachts took a three-yacht sales fleet to the show last year, selling all three yachts – 60m M/Y Arkley, 60m M/Y Event and 34.5m M/Y Arabella – in an ensuing 20-day period between 20 November and 9 December. Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial Yachts, put the sales down to how closely the team worked with their clients, and the added bonus of having similarly sized yachts, with different features and attractions, side-by-side on the same quay.

M/Y Solaris

The 40.2m motoryacht, Solaris, launched in 2014, has been listed for sale with an asking price of €12.8 million. She is hull number three of Princess Yachts’ M-Class series and has exceptional attention to detail throughout, huge deck spaces enhanced by fold-down balconies, a vast selection of tenders & toys and an open flybridge that incorporates a Jacuzzi and an al fresco dining area.

Solaris' main salon

Solaris' opulent interior, designed by Mark Berryman, has accommodation for 12 guests over six double staterooms, a large gym, a cinema and other entertainment systems in every room.

43.1m Elsea

The 43.1m motoryacht Elsea is also for sale, with her price available upon request. She was built by Italyachts in 2011 at its Pisa facility. Her sleek and striking gold and bronze planing hull is moulded for performance and supported by three MTU 16V 2000 engines, providing 7,200hp and top speeds of 36 knots.

Elsea's main deck aft

The design work in its entirety was completed by Studio Bacigalupo, which apportioned accommodation for 9 guests over a full-beam master stateroom, a VIP and two guest staterooms (one double and one twin with a Pullman).

47m Ariadna

Ariadna, the 47m Heesen-built motoryacht, is the third of Imperial Yachts’ new listings and is also priced upon application. The 491-gross ton vessel was launched in 2011 at the Dutch yard’s facility in Oss.

Ariadna's aft decks

The owner’s interior design brief to Frank Laupman of Omega Architects was to take inspiration from the Moscow Ritz-Carlton hotel. As such, the interior has versatile furniture, luxury marble, silk/wool decorations and incorporates state-of-the-art entertainment systems. She is able to accommodate 12 guests over six cabins.
