La Vie Superyacht - Tecnomar Evo 120

This luxury superyacht was designed for world exploration and is known to be an active superyacht. We believe that the current owner and his wife use her extensively, and sail for 2 months of the year somewhere around America and 2 months of the year in the Bahamas. Here on the left she was spotted in the UK during September 2021. 


Her original owner was Jan-Erik Österlund, who in 2008, launched a book called Exploring with Adèle after sailing her to more adventurous places in the world, where normal yachts wouldn’t explore. According to Jan-Erik and his wife, their most memorable journey was their visit to Antarctica. 


Adele has won 3 prestigious awards, which is a stunning result and a credit to the designer, owner, build team and everyone involved. The awards are as follows:  

The international Superyacht Society Award: "Best Sailing Yacht Over 36 metres" 

ShowBoats International Awards: "Best Sailing Yacht over 40 metres" 

World Superyacht Awards: "Best Sailing Superyacht 51 metres and above"
