New to the market this week is Y.CO’s own exclusive central agency, the 78m long-range luxury expedition yacht, Lone Ranger.
Launched in the early 1970’s by Schichau GmbH in Bremerhaven as Simson, Lone Ranger was built to fulfil two very different functions: towing, at very low speed, some of the largest structures ever to be moved, and racing hundreds of miles to be first on the scene as an ocean salvage tug.
In 1994 this strong working vessel was bought and converted by an owner who admired her combination of beauty and function. During an extensive refit, her owner made sure to retain her unique appearance.
Over the course of her three decades at sea, Lone Ranger has travelled extensively, exploring the Northern and Southern hemispheres alike. Sailing the Seychelles, crossing the Equator to arrive in the Maldives, spending time in Micronesia, she has graced the coasts of South America, cruising extensively in Antarctica via Montevideo in Uruguay, Ushuaia in Argentina and Cape Horn. Lone Ranger is no stranger to Europe, either, cruising Ireland, England, Wales and the Channel Islands and visiting the Balearic Islands, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily the Amalfi coast.
This unique superyacht’s elegant interior can accommodate 10 privileged guests in 5 beautifully appointed staterooms, all ensuite. Her extremely private master suite is on a separate deck and has its own library/office. The full width main salon has large windows to either side with doors opening aft onto an outside seating area.
Guests can either enjoy the onboard gym with its tremendous vistas, a secluded swimming pool, outdoor dining and sun-bathing pads or can even form their own team of “Globetrotters” using Lone Ranger’s basketball court!
Should guests want to go exploring on land, Lone Ranger’s two 40′ tenders and two extra rigid inflatable tenders are waiting and ready to be craned into the water. And wherever Lone Ranger is in the world, guests can fly in to land on her helipad.
Her steel hull and record breaking 31,000 mile range at 12 knots makes for easy and comfortable non-stop world circumnavigation. For petrol-heads, the large engine room is a must see, with its two Deutz 12M 350 4400HP.
“Watching Lone Ranger arrive for the Cannes Film Festival or the Monaco Grand Prix among the modern motor yachts was like seeing a polar explorer appear at a Hollywood soirée: everybody else was suddenly made to feel a little less adequate. It was as if those that admired her in these sometimes surreal surroundings knew that, unlike many of the big Mediterranean boats, she would soon be somewhere else, among icebergs in the high latitudes of the Arctic or riding the long swells of the Atlantic, on her way to the Southern Ocean”.
This is a unique opportunity to own an important part of the yachting history, priced at US$ 20,000,000. Lone Ranger is exclusively and proudly for sale through Y.CO, for more information visit our website or contact the Y.CO sales team.
