“Berilda” presents a rare opportunity to acquire a top-tier yacht boasting the highest pedigree with a documented history of excellent owners and meticulous care. Constructed by the renowned Dutch shipyard, Feadship - Royal Van Lent, and crafted by seasoned designers with years of expertise, she achieves a flawless balance of interior and exterior spaces. This 47m (155ft) vessel was built to meet Lloyd's classification and LY1 compliance standards, delivered in 2001 with an impressive 499GT of interior volume and trans-pacific range of 4600 miles at 10 knots. The esteemed John Munford has curated a classic interior, ensuring optimal comfort for the owner and guests within an ambiance of relaxed elegance.

Originally, christened as Northern Light, she enjoyed a decade long tenure under the ownership of a distinguished member of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club (KSSS). From 2010-2012, she was owned by Richard and Leslie Fairbanks who later did a total rebuild of the 1930 122ft motor yacht Atlantide.

Her next chapter can best be described as a nine-year stewardship, by a well-known gentleman with a history of famous yachts named “Mary A”, whereby he continued her legacy of meticulous care. During the years of 2020-2021, she underwent a comprehensive refit, full paint job, and an intensive 20-year Lloyds survey, ensuring her excellent condition and continued adherence to the highest standards.

Acquired in 2021, the current owner has traversed the Atlantic twice and explored Europe, New England, the Bahamas and the Caribbean, all while maintaining her impeccable state.

The interior boasts exquisite Honduran mahogany with traditional English raised paneling, enhancing the timeless feel of the yacht. The main salon offers a comfortable seating area leading to a separate formal dining space for 10 guests and is accentuated by exposed beams that highlight the vessel's graceful lines.

The owner's suite, situated beyond the foyer and staircase, boasts a study, full-beam bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, and an adjacent cabin offering versatile options for use as a 6th mini-stateroom or for other purposes.

On the lower deck, four additional guest suites offer luxurious retreats, comprising two double cabins forward and two twin cabins aft, each equipped with a Pullman berth. In total, “Berilda” comfortably accommodates up to 14 guests across 6 cabins, with quarters for a dedicated crew of 10.

The bridge deck lounge is basked in natural light and features beautiful hardwood floors, wrap-around sofa seating, and a marble-topped bar, providing a refined setting for relaxation and entertainment. Outside, the bridge deck offers an alfresco dining space with built-in semi-circular lounge areas aft. The sun deck features a jacuzzi surrounded by sun pads, a long bar with seating, and additional lounging areas with umbrellas for sun protection, perfect for leisurely days at sea.

Powered by twin Caterpillar diesel engines, “Berilda” achieves a cruising speed of 13 knots, and a 4600-mile trans-oceanic range (@10kts.), making her ideal for worldwide cruising. Her zero-speed stabilizers constantly provide a smoother and more comfortable experience at anchor or while travelling at sea.
