A stunning and elegant Classic Express style yacht, DIAMANTE is truly exceptional in every way. Originally built in 2008 but with the recession and demo use she was not sold to the first owner until 2011 undergoing a refit. Sold to the current knowledgeable owner in 2014, then going thru a further refit by an experienced yachtsman, who has continued to improve on the original in every way. Three spacious staterooms, a timeless classic interior all in a true Ray Hunt form and seakeeping. A must see for anyone considering an express style yacht.

January 2020, DIAMANTE just completed a major yard service period, all thru hulls service, prop speed on running gear, fresh bottom and the installation of HUMPHREE INTERCEPTOR Trim Tabs which according to the Owner and Captain both, is simply amazing in ride. Expensive but worthwhile.


DIAMANTE offers three charming staterooms each with their own private head, in a beautiful combination of fabrics and varnished cherry.   A separate crew cabin is located aft.

Upon boarding, you are greeted with a large comfortable AFT DECK area, with varnished teak table, long settee and four varnished teak chairs.  In addition to storage, servicing this area is an electric grill by Miele, icemaker and refrigerator, while being protected by a fixed stainless steel and fabric awning with removable side curtains and clear back curtain of Strataglass.   Staircases on both port and starboard lead to the swim platform and Tender lift, along with engine room access.   

Moving inside thru a large stainless framed, sliding glass door to the spacious and airy MAIN SALON, with comfortable built in settees on port and starboard.  While presently covered with a custom blue carpet the entire salon area has a teak and holly cabin sole.   Surrounded by tinted windows, the view seated in the Salon is fabulous.  A concealed TV is on the aft starboard cabinetry, with cherry finished cabinets on both port and starboard.    Adjacent to the starboard settee is an electrically controlled high/low drop leaf dining table.   Two matching chairs and ottomans finish the seating for the salon.    A large weather sealed skylight is in the forward end of the salon adjacent to the galley, this fixed skylight includes an electric opening hatch for additional fresh air.

The HELM is forward to Starboard, with a single Stidd helm seat, just in front of a raised double companion set is just aft, with vanished teak drink holder.   The helm offers twin 16’ screens, full electronics, engine and generator controls and a conveniently mounted Joystick for the YachtControler.

The GALLEY is opposite the Helm, U-shaped with a raised breakfast bar and two matching bar stools.   The Galley is complete with beautiful Granite counters and excellent storage spaces, a double drawer Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele 4 burner cooktop, Miele dishwasher, Stainless convection Microwave.

Moving forward, down 5 stairs to the Accommodations deck area.    Immediately to port is a pantry/owner’s office area, which on the forward side contains Wine Cooler and Twin Sub-Zero drawer style freezers storage cabinets below and glass cabinets above the countertop.    On the forward bulkhead is a full desk with chair and bookcase style storage above.    On the outboard side are three storage bins.

The VIP stateroom is forward with an island queen bed, with storage below the custom premium mattress, accessed with a hydraulic lift.    Two large hanging lockers along with drawers provide great storage, with the ensuite head with curved glass stall shower and gracious spaces make this a true VIP stateroom, not an afterthought as so often found.

Just aft of the private door to the VIP stateroom is the third GUEST STATEROOM with fully ensuite head and stall shower.  Surprisingly large for a third stateroom, with generous side by side single berths, night stand with lamp between, and a large hanging locker, while the ensuite head is size typically found on an 85’ yacht.

The MASTER STATEROOM, is aft down two stairs and very private.  A large Queen berth, with fabric headboard and twin matching nightstands sets the tone for this delightful stateroom.  On Starboard is desk/vanity area, with drawers, and large hanging locker, while on Port is a comfortable and spacious settee with drawers below and a large hanging locker adjacent.  A overhead drop down TV is also featured.   The Master Head is split on the forward bulkhead with a large Stall shower and sink on the Starboard side, while a separate and private toilet and sink compartment are on the Port side.  Like all the berths in the yacht, there is a hydraulic arm lift storage under the master berth.
