The Benetti Classic 115’ Freemont exudes a contemporary classic charm, and is an icon of both nautical tradition and Italian design. We asked Alex Mazzoni, the broker who knows Freemont better than anyone else, to list three reasons why her future owner should chose this stylishly elegant gem. This is what he told us about one of the most charming classic motor yachts for sale in Europe right now.
Class and elegance will never go out of fashion
Freemont is a classic yacht whose every detail exudes class and elegance. Simply put, she will never go out of fashion. She is the perfect marriage of tradition, technological innovation and the exquisitely Italian savoir-faire for which the Benetti brothers are such fine ambassadors. A semi-displacement tri-deck, she has a square stern, a modern, highly evolved structural feature that means the available space can be more efficiently used, resulting in superior liveability.
Brimming with personality, Freemont has warm, comfortable interiors furnished in timeless style and enriched with luxe finishes. They are the work of Architect Manfredi.
Neither class nor luxury mean having to compromise on comfort aboard Freemont, however: zero-speed stabilisers reduce roll both at anchor and underway, guaranteeing a sense of solidity and stability. This makes Freemont the perfect choice for long cruises through the likes of the Greek, Croatian and British Virgin Islands.
Superbly laid-out and perfectly balanced spaces
Superbly laid-out and perfectly balanced spaces are another of Freemont’s most attractive characteristics.
The owner’s suite lies forward on the main deck and comprises one double and one twin cabin. This extremely clever arrangement lends itself to different uses: the twin cabin can become a children’s room or, as is currently the case, a lavishly generous walk-in closet, for example. Another feature that makes Freemont one of the most attractive motor yachts for sale in Europe.
A further double cabin – full-beam – is located aft on the lower deck together with two twins.
Freemont’s guest and crew quarters are also balanced to an unparalleled extent. The crew quarters feature generous cabins furnished to the same standard as the guest accommodations, while the captain has a private cabin with large windows adjacent to the bridge. The crew quarters include a comfortable eight-seater mess on the lower deck with audio and video systems. The engine room was completely redesigned recently and equipped with new-generation plant. Only her original engines were retained to guarantee Freemont the correct weight, stability and performance.
For a classic motor yacht for sale in Europe, Freemont is extremely competitively priced as she is in absolutely pristine condition. The owner has consistently invested in both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance at the Benetti yard, never skimping on any work required. This meticulous care has been rewarded with many years of enjoyment aboard and not a single day’s cruising lost as a result of breakdowns or disruptions.
That said, anyone that tries Freemont out will find it hard to leave her behind: her second owner purchased her after chartering her for two months in a row (Freemont was chartered for a short period to a very select group of clients by her first owner).
After she was purchased by her second owner, Freemont was put back on the private register for family use only but retained her MCA certification which is required for commercial vessels, just in case a future owner wished to use her in the luxury charter sector. Furthermore, Freemont has Bureau Veritas unrestricted navigation notation and has been certified VAT-paid by French Customs.
Profile of FREEMONT’s new owner
An owner looking for a classic motor yacht for sale in Europe with large interior spaces and a generous cockpit for friends. Someone who wants to sail aboard a classic vessel that won’t be impacted by fast-changing trends. May have a large family or lots of friends to share cruises with. Or, as is the case with Freemont’s current lady owner, like exploring remote islands with friends while being looked after by a handpicked crew.
The new owner will be an individual who wants to live the seafaring experience to the utmost without having to embark on a long, costly refit.
