The superyacht featured on the first season of Below Deck Mediterranean is for sale at nearly $17million.

The 150ft Ionian Princess, which played out as the backdrop for all kinds of drama on the Bravo TV show, is listed at $16,750,000 by leading luxury yacht broker Northrop & Johnson.

Pictures show the vessel in all its glory — minus the crew and wild guests that made it famous.

The sales description says the boat “personifies absolute luxury” and is “exquisite in every detail”.

Salesman Joe Foggia said: “Ionian Princess is the epitome of the yachting lifestyle. Still owned by her original owner, she is built for both private and charter use.

“Very few yachts under 500 GRT [gross tonnage] can match her overall interior and exterior living spaces.”

The sales description adds: “She offers an inspired level of elegance, comfort and service. IONIAN PRINCESS is an exclusive private on-water retreat that offers every possible amenity for an incredible experience every time you step on board.”

The first season of Below Deck Mediterranean came to a close last night in an episode of high drama and emotional gooeyness.

It follows a string of dramatic moments as Captain Mark Howard and his crew sailed the idyllic waters around Greece in the Mediterranean.

But while the crew lived below deck on the Ionian Princess, the new owner will likely be more interested in what is above deck on the luxury vessel.

The sales description reveals the boat has recently been upgraded with new furnishings inside and out and a new paintjob — all carried out in 2016 after the filming of Below Deck Mediterranean.

It adds that the vessel is “finished in the finest marbles” with “expansive interiors”, with six suites for guests including two “lavish” staterooms for the owner, a special luxury VIP room with a queen bed, two double staterooms and a twin stateroom.

They all come with en-suite, high-spec entertainment system, and climate control.

The dining options include a formal interior dining area, plus room for eating ‘al fresco’ which viewers of Below Deck Mediterranean will be more than familiar with.
