LUXURY CLASSIC MOTOR YACHT OVER THE RAINBOW FOR SALE
The 114-foot (35m) OVER THE RAINBOW is a beautifully designed classic gentleman’s luxury motor yacht.
Delivered in 1930 by the Welsh yard Dickie & Sons on behalf of W. G. Hetherington of Glasgow, M/Y OVER THE RAINBOW has had a long and fascinating history. She was utilized as a coastal patroller during World War II, she also served as a floating casino off the coast of Greece for a time and she was owned as a private and charter yacht all before being purchased in 2002 and renamed OVER THE RAINBOW
At this time, she arrived at a specialized Italian shipyard where a painstaking two-year full rebuild was embarked upon to preserve her precious historical value and to bring the yacht a new lease of life.
Under the close supervision of Captain Jean Louis Legros, the oak frames and teak planking were fully restored before the entire hull was caulked in traditional methods before being completely painted. The exterior wooden superstructure was also kept original undergoing a full re-varnish.
The interior has been reconfigured and upgraded keeping many of the original features whilst allowing for modern-day comforts. The Genova based SYDAC took care of the entire interior restoration project, finishing the interior in light cherry wood with exquisitely appointed cabins & ensuites; all of which are complemented by many beautifully artistic features (such as the stained-glass deck lights).
Upon completion of the rebuild in 2004, her proud owner relocated OVER THE RAINBOW to her new home in Nice, France, where she has been preserved to the highest standard. One would find it hard to find a more elegant way to cruise the Cote D’Azur than onboard the sundeck of OVER THE RAINBOW. Northrop & Johnson’s sales brokers Wes Sanford and Ed Dickinson are proud to offer the opportunity to purchase this truly spectacular gentleman’s classic motor yacht to a new owner to take the write the next chapter in her history.
