HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
The famous Cantieri di Pisa shipyard was first established in 1945 in Tuscany. By 1956 a larger boatbuilding yard was required and created at Darsena Pisana. The appointment of Pier Luigi Spadolini as the resident naval architect elevated Cantieri di Pisa to new heights. By the early 1970s, they were producing some of the finest motor-yachts available, built to an extremely high standard with classic styling and high-end appointment.
1970s motor-yachts are highly desirable and as such DANAE is only in her third ownership. She was re-engined in 2001 with Caterpillar 3208 diesels which give a speed exceeding 20 knots plus. In 2008 a new teak laid deck was fitted and new generator installed. Systems were updated with the vessel surveyed in 2016.
Triple Mahogany hull, hard chine design with a transom stern. Teak veneered marine-ply superstructure and polished teak interior joinery.
