Here’s a special piece of history. We found this 96′ classic motor yacht that was originally built as a high speed ocean rescue boat for the US Army Air Corps in 1944 and subsequently decommissioned post World War II. She underwent a complete refit and conversion to a yacht in the mid 1970s. She’s had only three owners since conversion, all of whom spared no expense in making improvements, additions, maintenance and care. We couldn’t help but notice how solid and well-kept she is.
Her striking white hull is complimented with teak rails and doors along with polished stainless rails. She has a spacious foredeck with teak seating for lounging, a roomy gear locker and aluminum bow pulpit.
The covered aft deck is perfect for entertaining with a large round table and food prep area. Water recreation is afforded by its large aluminum & stainless swim step, accompanied with a custom starboard cleaning table.
The upper deck is equipped with two Sport skiffs and bridge equipped with updated controls and electronics, along with plenty of seating to enjoy the view.
The aft salon features custom, wild teak moldings, doors and cabinetry with teak dental molding throughout and a lovely wet bar area for holding court. Further forward the galley/main salon looks out with full windows on each side and forward, full of light and incredibly roomy. With tile floors and backsplash, a full array of quality German appliances and generous storage, the galley is a chef’s dream.
Down below is a roomy stand up engine room, wine locker and five staterooms each with their own head and shower, one with a bathtub. There is also a laundry area with washer and dryer. All compartments feature the same stunning woodwork, roomy storage and solid rectangular bronze portholes.
She’s for sale by owner for $740K.
