According to the latest reports from the yacht industry, Superyacht Madiz, built by Ailsa Shipyard in Troon, Scotland has been put up for sale. Madiz, manufactured in 1902, is considered to be the oldest steel superyacht across the world and a leading yacht to have been grouped with the storied Lloyds Register of Shipping. This 55.4 meter yacht was formerly known as Triton and used to operate in the British Royal Navy as a Royal Patrol Yacht during World War II. Prominent personalities like King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the present Queen Elizabeth hold an experience of traveling on the same. The superyacht is also the last existing vessel as far as the designs of G L Watson are concerned. His incredible contributions include the designs on some of the beauties of the America’s Cup.

For some years the Superyacht Madiz was overlooked, owing to its bad state. But later in 1972 the vessel was bought by the current owner who undertook the necessary repairs and refitting for the yacht.

Currently, the yacht is in “+100A1” category and was placed in the same with Lloyd’s in 2006, which is 100 years from the date of its manufacturing. By getting back into action, it has now managed to set a new world record and has been put on sale at €7.8 million. It is powered by twin 650hp MTU Maybach diesel engines to maintain a speed of 11.5 knots while sailing. The master staterooms are built in Burmese teak and Cuban mahogany and there are panels made in solid oak near the reception area. The yacht which can house 14 guests and 9 crew members is an epitome of the classic era and luxury.
