Formally owned by Mike Kittredge of Yankee Candle Company, Paraffin is a 197-foot yacht that is back on the market for $57 million.
Kittredge sold Yankee Candle Company in 1998 for $500 million and named his Feadship superyacht Paraffin. The extremely luxurious yacht was first launched in 2001 and subsequently refitted in 2010. Kittridge and his wife, Lisa, redid the yacht to maximize entertainment options by adding a small bar in the entry foyer, traditional raised panel mahogany interior, a 400 bottle wine cellar with storage for one glass per bottle, as 12-person gym, a steam room, a whirlpool, accommodation for 12 guests and 17 crew, a large bath outfitted in yellow Onice marble and heated floors, a large walk in closet, a full-beam VIP cabin (with an extra bed, games room, flat-screen TV and home movie system) and enough space for 20 to dine.
The large Master Suite spans the full beam of Paraffin on the main deck and all guest accommodations feature full CD/DVD/entertainment centers with video on demand. All rooms on board are totally sound-isolated from the hall to ensure vibration free quiet and privacy, even when the yacht is moving.
Fraser Yachts is now selling the yacht for $57 million.
