Fraser Yachts sells 60m expedition superyacht Ulysses
by Malcolm MacLean
Jan-Jaap Minnema at Fraser Yachts tells me he's found a buyer for the 59.7m expedition yacht Ulysses, with his colleague Stuart Larsen acting for the seller.
A joint central listing for sale with Burgess, Ulysses was built by US superyacht builder Trinity Yachts in 2006 and combines tough, go-anywhere expedition capability with a luxurious interior that surrounds guests in great comfort and style.
She has a rugged steel hull and aluminium superstructure and, powered by twin Caterpillar engines, she can be self-sufficient for long periods. At a cruising speed of 12.5 knots, her range is 6,000 nautical miles and she is fully equipped to take guests well off the beaten track. Lloyds registered and MCA compliant, this superyacht has a vast array of equipment, including RIB tenders, a five-person Perry submarine, two Waverunners, a dive compressor and helipad.
Accommodation is for up to 16 guests in a master suite, five double and two twin cabins along with three Pullman berths.
Ulysses was asking $36.5 million.
