The 54.70m 1973 motor yacht LATITUDE from German yard Hitzler Schiffswerft is offered for sale and is a classic expedition yacht in exceptional condition, thanks to the recent completion of a two-year refit.
Following an original conversion to an expedition yacht by Consunav Consulting & Engineering, LATITUDE completed an extensive 2-year interior and exterior refit in 2020 at Circa Marine New Zealand with interior design by Venia Design. Works included fabrication and installation of new steel and aluminium elements, mechanical, electrical and systems upgrades, plus interior remodelling of the bridge, entertainment spaces and galley. Owner, guest and crew accommodations were completely gutted, redesigned and refurbished.
So far in her lifetime, LATITUDE has cruised to Brazil, Panama, Costa Rica, the Galapagos, the Caribbean and the east coast of the USA. LATITUDE has even completed three Pacific crossings, from Panama to Tahiti in French Polynesia, and has visited Fiji. She is currently en route to New Zealand.
LATITUDE can accommodate 12 guests across six cabins, including an Owner’s cabin on the bridge deck with private lounge and terrace, plus three double cabins and two convertible twins on the main deck. There is also space for 16 crew on board.
Powered by twin 708 kW (949 Hp) MWM Deutz TBD 440-08 engines, LATITUDE has a top speed of 10 knots and cruises at 8 knots, and she is very economical.
