18 October, 2012, Genoa: When the custom built yacht Jangada II, Ebba, was built in 1984 her owners knew real style. The classic 35.5 meter tri-deck was fully air-conditioned, and when she was refitted in 2006-2008 by Amico & Co. Sri Lanka, she was rechristened Limoncello. Not long after however the Limoncello was seized by the Italian government and has been under lock and key for the last three years. The government in Genoa however recently announced that the luxurious vessel will be sold to the highest bidder at an auction to be scheduled for sometime in the end of November, 2012 and the bidding promises to be heavy.
This superyacht is truly luxurious. It boasts full displacement with Vosper stabilizers and has four elegantly designed staterooms. The main deck Master Suite spans the entire beam and the vessel has another, VIP suite furnished with a King Sized berth, two twin beds and a Pullman berth and that is full beam as will. These two suites are complemented with several ensuite guest cabins. Because of this design the MY Limoncello can be perfect for both private owners and charter services as well. While the sleeping accommodations are great, the social and entertainment facilities are top row. The main deck saloon for instance features a separate formal dining room for a dinner with up to ten guests. There is yet another dining area for up to 10 in the al-fresco area, with separate washroom on an sheltered aft deck at wheelhouse level. This area is also perfect for sunbathing and has a u shaped sofa, chaise lounge and treadmill.
The Limoncello is currently moored in Marina Genova Aeroporto sometime within the next 30 days. Perfect for either private owners or charters she will accommodate 5/6 crew members as well with a Captain´s Cabin, one twin cabin, one up & down cabin, all ensuite with sleeping area and dinette. The crew´s quarters are on the lower deck, next to a well-equipped galley.
