This is the sort of classic motor yacht you could imagine moored off St Tropez or cruising round Capri in the 1960s with a couple of starlets aboard. These days, however, she has a rather quieter existence in London Docklands as a simply stunning live-aboard.

Built for a French millionaire, she has that look and feel which we just don't see with many of today's boats. She is kept in pristine condition and has been meticulously maintained to the highest specification, regardless of cost. Her twin diesels, which fire up on the first press of the button, will just purr away, propelling her to a top speed of around 12 knots for that potter round the coast or even an ocean crossing.

Below decks, there are acres of polished wood, a fully equipped modern galley and bags of space for living, entertaining and sleeping. There’s a super aft deck for outdoor entertaining and a large saloon. Most of the furniture can be purchased as part of the deal.

With a residential mooring licence in London Docklands, she would make a great central London liveaboard or, with the 2012 Olympics just around the corner, a superb base for corporate entertaining. The owner is keen to sell, and has reduced the price substantially: at £175,000, this boat looks like a real bargain.
