Sale Yachts Midlandia


Midlandia has immense presence, matched only by her volume. The challenge for the naval architect Stefano Natucci and interior designer Franзois Zuretti, was to create shapes and styles that were as efficient as they were graceful. Their success is self-evident. Curves form the basis of the entire design concept and there are very few straight lines anywhere on the yacht.

The sundeck has a circular forward sunbathing area (that converts to a helipad or dancefloor), a circular dining table for 12 and two semi-circular seating areas. A Jacuzzi and bar complete the layout. The radar arch conceals a panoramic, three metre drop-down cinema screen.

The interior is unquestionably one of Zuretti's finest. Occupying half of the internal space of the main deck, the enormous open-plan lounge has lacquered, inlaid ceilings with Tanganyika and Myrtle Burr panelling. A dining area comfortably seats 12 guests.

The skylounge has a concealed two metre cinema screen and bar. Leading out onto the aft deck, a circular external dining area can be kept private with electronically operated curtains.

The six cabins include a main deck master suite with a private office, full-beam bedroom and lounge, walk-in wardrobes and twin bathrooms. A large VIP on the upper deck and two double and two twin cabins on the lower deck have deco-influenced styling with richly grained gloss panelling used throughout the yacht.

Midlandia has recently been thoroughly refurbished and is in immaculate condition. A new owner is sought for one of the finest yachts ever built by Benetti.
