The 46.1 metre Benetti motor yacht Mistress has changed central agencies and is now listed for sale by Sebastiano Pitasi at Engel & Volkers Yachting.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti, she was delivered in 1991 as Shamwari, the first of the yard’s true custom superyachts. A lavish interior by Francois Zuretti accommodates 11 guests in six cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite with two separate bathrooms, while below there are four doubles and a single cabin, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en-suite bathroom facilities.
