"Menorca" is a custom motor yacht built by the Dutch shipyard Botje Ensing, delivered in 1961 for Baron Allard.  She was previously "Zurga" and "Agapee."  She has hosted numerous royals and celebrities in her time.

Totally rebuilt in 2004, and with a major refit in 2017, she now has a completely new interior and deck set up by Mare e Terra, the French luxury hotel developers.  Her new interior design is comfortable, elegant and versatile, with a 7 cabin arrangement which is particularly suitable for large numbers of guests.  She offers enormous deck areas, Jacuzzi, and an open air cinema.  Her classic lines combined with a tasteful interior refurbishment and excellent maintenance record ensure "Menorca" is ready for her new owner.
