1968 164' classic steel mega motor yacht "THEA" is  located in Malta.

She is a beautiful classic style and luxury can be yours in this highly appointed yacht designed in the style of the best luxury hotel. Natural oak with custom furniture and finishing are the norm. Formally named "Myrna", "Yanka", "Derama" and "Rama", "Thea" returned to the builder's yard, Arsenal Do Alfeite, in 1999 for a refit where several electrical and mechanical components were modernized. Recently, she has also received new bottom inspections and coatings and will be R.I.N.A. certified.

On board are vast libraries of engineering drawings, specification books, fuel consumption graphs and yard bills that document special history. "Thea" boasts many redundant systems and toughened naval type construction hidden beneath her sumptuous appearance. Configured for comfortable cruising with 11 master and guest berths, all with en suite head facilities, and crew accommodations for 11, “Thea” is a palatial treat on the sea.

The seller will consider all reasonable offers. Please call or email for the complete brochure.
