Christensen motor yacht Kingfish sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 32.61 metre motor yacht Kingfish has been sold and renamed Reflections. Listed for sale by Neal Esterly and Patrick McConnell at Fraser Yachts, the buyer was introduced by Raymond Young at RJC Yachts.
Built by US yard Christensen and delivered in 1997, she features naval architecture by Paragon Design and exterior styling by Ward Setzer. Her interior revolves around neutral tones using leathers, marble, leaded glass, mahogany, teak and burl woods. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite panelled in mahogany and padded white leather, two mirror image doubles with queen sized beds and a twin, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities.
The vast saloon has a lounge area aft furnished with a love seat, armchairs, end tables, a games table for four, wet bar and an entertainment centre while forward, separated by a mahogany buffet, is a formal dining area seating eight guests. Further forward is the galley with a breakfast nook for informal snacks.
Outdoors, the oversized aft deck has a settee seating six guests, a table and four directors’ chairs. Up on the flybridge there is more al fresco entertainment and dining available, as it offers a wet bar, gas barbecue, seating for eight guests, a six person hot tub, sun pads and tender storage. The very large teak swimming platform has access to the engine room and stairs up the starboard side to the aft deck. Twin 1,300hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a range of 1,700 nautical miles.
Kingfish was asking $4,295,000 and, under her new name of Reflections, is available for charter through RJC Yachts in Florida and the Bahamas.
