If you are looking for something a bit special, under 20M that you can enjoy as an Owner-Driver, then look no further. This Italian built Motor Yacht has been constructed to a very high standard inside and out and offers a luxurious level of comfort. She would also make a very good liveaboard with four en-suite cabins, a split level saloon, separate galley and well laid out cockpit and flybridge areas. Powered by twin, low hour MAN 820hp diesels. Upper and lower helms plus additional docking station. "Summer Wind" comes with lots of useful extras that will make your life afloat that bit more pleasurable. These include a hydraulic Passerelle, water maker, generator, air conditioning and remote controlled heating.
"Summer Wind" has been a labour of love for her current owner, and has been regularly used and cared for by him. She will live up to all your expectations and not disappoint.
Vessel currently ashore for antifoul, new anodes, cutlass bearings and propeller polish.
Vessel is powered by 2 X MAN D2480LE401 diesel engines. The engine room is a thing of beauty and is an engineers dream. There is full standing headroom and easy access to all aspects of the machinery. Both engines have been well maintained and have relatively low hours for their 20 years of service. The port engine has completed 1782 hours and the starboard unit 1813.
The appeal of the MAN engines is that they are recognised work horses which will provide many years of good service. Our RNLI have favoured them for years for this very reason.
The engine room is accessed from the rear of the saloon and is adjacent to the Crew/Captains cabin. The area is fully sound proofed resulting in a very quiet ride for the guests. Fuel tanks are situated port and starboard and hold 1600 litres each side. There is both tank and sight gauges for fuel levels. There is a Racor fuel filtration system for each engine. The engines can be started at each helm or from the engine room. To the aft of the engine room is the watermaker.
Both the lower and upper helms feature full instrumentation. The engine room is fitted with a camera which can be displayed on the chart plotters. Situated on the radar arch at the rear of the flybridge is a docking station to assist when berthing.
The current owner of the vessel has turned one of the crew cabins into a workshop. From this cabin you can access the generator and the hydraulics for the passerelle. Work carried out since current owners purchase are:
- Full engine servicing carried out by MAN UK engineers
- Engine Turbo's serviced and new diffusers

The interior of this motor yacht is luxurious and welcoming. The materials used and the Italian craftsmanship go hand in hand to produce a living space that combines comfort, luxury and functionality in equal measure.
The interior wood work is a combination of solid teak and mahogany cabinet work and veneered bulkheads. There are curves aplenty which you just dont get in motor yachts produced today. The wood work is finished in high gloss lacquer and in excellent condition. Headroom throughout is a generous 2.00M.
The carpeted, main saloon is entered from the cockpit. To starboard is a large, well upholstered leather L-shaped settee with an occasional table. Opposite on the port side is a series of curved wooden cabinets. These feature plentiful storage, bar and satellite TV. Large panoramic windows let in plentiful natural light. These are fitted with privacy blinds.
Moving forward and on a slightly raised level from the saloon is the lower helm position. Aft of the helm position is the well equipped galley. Here you will find plentiful work surfaces, storage cupboards and kitchen appliances. These include a full height fridge freezer, Bosch electric 4-burner hob, electric microwave oven/grill and a dishwasher.
Opposite the galley is the large dinette with a solid wooden table and well upholstered comfortable seating. Opposite is the lower helm with leather hand stitched helm seat with matching dashboard trim. Stainless steel ZF throttles, bow and stern thruster controls and bespoke dash with full engine instrumentation.
