David Bowie’s yacht goes up for sale

Originally commissioned by music icon David Bowie in 1977, the 39-metre (127-foot) El Caran classic Benetti motor yacht is up for sale.

The late singer-songwriter’s yacht has been listed for sale by Giulio Riggio at Fraser’s Palma office, with an asking price of €4,850,000 (c. $5,041,996). A classic steel displacement hull, El Caran has just completed a refit including a full paint job and a new teak deck.

A classic superyacht with a modern layout, the yacht has six staterooms offering accommodation for up to 12 guests, with an on-deck master stateroom. El Caran‘s sky lounge and outside deck spaces are amongst her key features, enhanced by her canoe stern design.

Twin 824hp MTU engines provide a range of 3,800 nautical miles and a top speed of 12 knots.
