by Malcolm MacLean
News in from Rick Obey & Associates that Jenny Wicker closed on her listing for sale, the 24.3 metre motor yacht Mercedes, with 26 North Yachts representing the buyer.
A Sunseeker Predator 80, Mercedes was built by British yard Sunseeker International in GRP and delivered in 2013. Graceful and spacious, she enjoys the same attention to detail and scope for personalisation as the other models in this range. A versatile accommodation layout allows for three full beam double suites or two double guest cabins and two twin guest cabins all with en suite facilities.
Mercedes boasts an extensive cockpit fully equipped for al fresco entertainment with U-shaped seating around a teak table, wet bars to port and starboard, an electric grill, an icemaker and a retractable electric canopy. Illuminated by a retractable carbon fibre roof and large hullside panoramic glass, the helm gives both skipper and guests an open cockpit feel – ideal for admiring the surroundings while cruising. Twin 1,800hp MAN engines give her a cruising speed of 24 knots.
Lying in Miami, Florida, Mercedes was asking $3.5 million.
