Now available for sale, M/Y Solemates is one of the most impressive and adventurous sailing superyachts complete with world-class design elements and a fleet of toys to match. Building a superyacht is a dream — the ultimate opportunity to express the desires of the owner, who offers the 196-foot Solemates for sale through the global, Fort Lauderdale-based yacht management firm Moran Yacht & Ship. Equipped with an onboard gym, a large Jacuzzi, and a swim platform with direct access to a professionally equipped dive room and easy access to the sea, this yacht also sails with a vast array of sport watercraft and equipment including two Waverunners, fishing gear, a power surfboard and two kayaks.

Displaying luxury in epic proportions, intelligent design offers the height of luxurious yachting onboard this elegant and fully custom yacht. To ensure guests enjoy views of all the visited ports of call, Lürssen Yachts chose to combine spacious open decks with exquisite interior spaces. Solemates has a sleek and curved exterior design by Espen Oeino, a Monaco-based superyacht4 designer. Her interior is the well-regarded work of Glade Johnson, who has created generous and warm areas in which the design blends elegant, rich woods and textures. The interior combines elegant classical details with contemporary elements. The main and upper deck salons are flushed with natural light. These areas offer huge spaces for formal dining on the inside, or more casual dining alfresco. The sundeck provides another outside dining and sunbathing area that wraps around the forward Jacuzzi pool.

Each morning, the sun embraces your balcony, while at night, the ebb and flow of the waves can be heard from your private cabin. With room to accommodate 12 guests in four spacious cabins on the lower deck, a fifth VIP guest cabin on the upper deck and the private master suite on the main deck, as well as quarters for a 15-member crew, Solemates offers a spectacular home on the water.
