Neal Esterly at Fraser Yachts in San Diego tells me he's just closed on his listing for sale, the part-completed 43.9 metre Crescent 144 motor yacht, representing the buyer and seller.
For sale by order of a Canadian court, her naval architecture is by Jack Sarin, and her contemporary exterior and interior styling and layout by Jonathan Quinn Barnett. She was being built in composite by Crescent Yachts with particular attention being given to achieving low sound and vibration levels. Accommodation is for ten guests in five generous staterooms plus up to nine crew in five cabins.
One of her most notable features, of which there are many, is the large fold-down transom door that transforms the swim platform into a beach deck for lounging and easy access to the water and tenders. Construction is approximately 65 percent complete, with around 10 months of work remaining and the new owner will undertake the completion.
The Crescent 144 was asking $14.5 million. See full details, specs and a photo gallery of superyacht Crescent 144.
