Remember When is one of Christensen's most recent yachts
The Christensen Yachts story begins in 1991 when the hull of a 27.4m composite yacht was built at Westport where David Christensen, founder of Christensen, was a partner. When the relationship ended he got several hulls as part of the deal, and these were finished off as Christensen yachts.
The first Westport yacht with the Christensen name on it was Yianoula which became his personal yacht. Designed by Ed Monk as a long-range cruiser, she has proved her mettle on two transatlantic crossings and is still in active service today, and currently for sale.
Christensen is best known for low maintenance composite construction with a resin-infused process giving the yachts 90,000 pounds tensile strength per square foot compared with steel which is 30,000 pounds per square foot. Also, the yard’s yachts feature 20% more interior space without the frame necessary in metal yachts.
Over the years Christensen has proved to be one of the USA’s most reputable builders with a strong list of repeat clients and a bright future, as exemplified by a new contract for a 43m custom superyacht. Here we present six fine yachts from a fine yard, all currently listed for sale.
Remember When | 2010 | 49.38m | $36.9 million
Delivered in 2010, the 59.38m Remember When has a luxurious interior designed by Carol Williamson and Associates. A study in comfort, her interior by Christensen‘s in-house team comprises woodwork, which has a high-gloss black walnut style. The yacht has six spacious cabins, including a main deck owner’s cabin, VIP cabin and four guest cabins catering for 12 guests.
She is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 series engines and can cruise at a comfortable 12 knots.
Remember When is listed for sale by Jack Robertson at HMY Yacht Sales who comments, ‘She’s been on display for the last year as the latest launch from Christensen with several upgraded features over the owner’s last Christensen Nice N Easy. She features the DPS dynamic positioning system which acts like a skyhook in conjunction with the GPS. Zero speed stabilisers too.
‘The interior has a very popular elevator to all four decks. She is certified helicopter touch-and-go on the sun deck. There’s a state-of-the-art Creston AV system with Kaleidascape unlimited music and thousands of movies downloaded.’
Scott Free | 2007 | 47.85m | $35.5 million
A design of refined elegance shines through in the styling of the 47.85m Scott Free, launched in 2007. The spacious interior of this yacht has a wide range of features including a formal dining room, a gourmet galley and six comfortable and elegant cabins, accommodating up to 12 guests.
The on-deck, full-beam master suite includes a private office and a relaxing sitting area, two walk-in wardrobes, and lavish his-and-hers en suite bathrooms, complete with spa tub and a marble shower. The other guest cabins include a full beam grand VIP, also with spa tub and shower, two with king-size beds, one double and one twin, all with en suite bathrooms. Televisions, DVD and music players, worldwide satellite communications and Internet are also included in each cabin.
Designed with entertaining and relaxation in mind, the enormous sun deck offers luxurious features such as a spacious bar, ideally suited for informal occasions, an oversized spa tub and comfortable lounging areas with chaise longues, adorned with mounds of soft throw cushions on which to relax and enjoy the sun and beautiful vistas. The aft boat deck area on Scott Free offers alfresco dining with unobstructed views and intimate privacy.
Her listing broker, Cromwell Littlejohn at Merle Wood & Associates, says, ‘Scott Free has great features that are difficult to find on a yacht under 60m including separate crew access to deck and guest areas as well as an elevator servicing all four decks, all the while remaining under the 500 GRT threshold.’
One More Toy | 2007 | 47.85m | $35.5 million
The 47.24m One More Toy is a fine example of a boat with classic beauty, exquisite style and impeccable taste. Her interior is decorated in fine fabrics with black walnut throughout.
She has luxurious accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins including an on-deck master suite with owner’s office and study and a VIP cabin with a queen-sized bed. The other four comfortable guest cabins all have en suite shower rooms.
One More Toy is for sale with Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection who says, ‘She’s a great fibreglass yacht which means less maintenance due to no corrosion. With six guest cabins and an elevator, One More Toy makes a great charter platform with great re-sale value. A truly transatlantic range combined with shallow draught provides all the options.’
Atlantica | 2000 | 41.15m | $11.9 million
The 41.5m Atlantica was originally delivered in 2000 and built to full ABS/AMS A1 yachting classification. Her original owner incorporated many custom features, including one of the very first split level on-deck master suites with both a sitting room and king-sized cabin, divided by an automatic sliding bulkhead for privacy. She also features another sliding bulkhead on the skylounge level, creating a totally private owner’s office separate from the skylounge and bar area.
Her accommodation includes four additional guest cabins below deck with a pass-through companionway to the crew quarters allowing for ease of servicing and maintenance. The main deck includes a saloon, formal dining area and large gourmet galley with a sofa for owners or crew. Her enormous skylounge features oversized windows for excellent visibility and both decks have large outdoor aft decks. The flybridge is very large with numerous amenities including a hot tub, hardtop with fold down 50″ television, wet bar, sunloungers, tender and toys.
Atlantica is for sale with Bob Cury at RJC Yachts who says, ‘Having just completed her W6 engine overhauls, Atlantica has been a very successful charter vessel for the past few years and our firm now represents her for both sale and charter with an asking price of $11,900,000 and a charter rate of $115,000 per week. She is currently located in Fort Lauderdale.’
Rusalka | 1994 | 35.97m | $5.6 million
The 36m Rusalka was built in 1994 to a design by Howard Appolonio. She has an interior by Glade Johnson and Dee Robinson accommodating eight guests in four large cabins.
The saloon has pounded copper wall panels at the forward end of the dining area that sets off this beautiful area with its sculptured glass dining table. The vessel is ABS/A1 yachting classified +AMS which allows for easy MCA certifying. An elegant ‘country kitchen’ has a large dining table with leather seating and all granite counter/table tops. The aft deck seating has two split tables for seating up to 10 guests using the aft bench seat with cushions and the four teak chairs with cushions. The pilothouse has a large L-shaped raised seating area for up to six quests and there are two helm chairs. The very large swim platform with the dual stairways down from the aft deck make this area the focal point for easy access to the water or boarding the tenders.
Her broker, Jim Eden at Worth Avenue Yachts, says, ‘The entire exterior of Rusalka has all new teak decks and fresh paint so she is in perfect condition. This owner has always had quality boats and they are very well cared for by an experienced crew.’
Criss C | 1993 | 34.01m | €3.75 million
The 34.01m Criss C was built in 1993 and was formerly known as Exuma C.
Her current owner bought her in December 2009 and invested in a cosmetic refit of the interior, including new fabrics, fixtures, loose furniture and artwork. Criss C accommodates a maximum of 11 guests in five cabins. The master is forward on the main deck and features a king-size bed, and there are four guest cabins on the lower deck. One of these cabins has a king-size bed, while the other three have twin beds. The starboard aft cabin also has a bunk-style Pullman berth for the 11th guest, ideally a child.
Her broker, David Legrand at Fraser Yachts, comments, ‘Criss C is actively for sale as the owner, who loves her, has decided to move to a larger yacht that can carry larger toys but he enjoys her so much that he will not stop using her in the meantime.’
