News just in from Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection of a further $2 million price cut on his central listing for sale, the 49m motor yacht Blind Date.
US superyacht yard Trinity Yachts built Blind Date to a design by Geoff Van Aller. Launched in 2009, she went on to receive a Judges’ Special Commendation at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards for her innovative layout and build quality. A contemporary, comfortable interior by Evan K. Marshall is in shades of grey and cream with splashes of purples and pinks. The saloon and dining room boast spectacular light fittings and are lined with black and white stills of 1950s and 1960s Hollywood film stars.
Twelve guests are accommodated in five staterooms featuring a spectacular forward-facing, split-level owner’s suite on the main deck with a private lounge, his and her bathrooms, excellent storage facilities and 280 degree views over the ocean. The stylishly appointed guest accommodation is housed on the lower deck in three double cabins with king size beds and a twin cabin (with Pullman), which can be converted to a double queen cabin.
Twin 2,250hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 18 knots.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Blind Date is now asking $19.9 million.
