Burger motor yacht Ava-L for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 31.39 metre motor yacht Ava-L has been listed for sale by Chris Collins at Ocean Independence.
Built in aluminium by US yard Burger to a design by Don O’Keefe, she was delivered in 1999 and had a completely new paint job in 2013. An interior in raised panel satin finished cherry wood accommodates six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and a twin, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for three crew aboard this yacht for sale.
The open plan main saloon has a lounge area aft fitted with settees, armchairs and coffee tables, a bar and an entertainment centre including a large screen television set, while forward is a formal dining area with seating for six guests. The open aft deck comes with a table and chairs for alfresco relaxation and the large flybridge offers a helm seat in front of a full instrument panel, upholstered built in seating, a bar and a forward hard top providing protection from the sun.
Worthy of note is the fact that she was the first Burger yacht to implement the B.A.S.I.C. (Burger Automated Ship’s Information and Control) system. Twin 1,350hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 17 knots topping out at 20 knots and she is fitted with Koopnautic zero speed stabilisers.
Lying in Miami, Florida, Ava-L is asking $2,950,000.
