Hargrave motor yacht Choini sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24.99 metre motor yacht Choini, listed for sale by Scott French and Craig Erikson at Fraser, has been sold with Jeff Stanley at Gilman Yachts introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Hargrave Yachts at the Kha Shing yard in Taiwan, Choini was delivered in 2001 and is MCA compliant. Panelled in high gloss cherry wood throughout, she accommodates six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite with a king sized bed, a VIP suite to port and a starboard twin, all with television sets and en suite bathrooms. In addition, the bathroom for the twin cabin serves as a day head and there are quarters for four crew.
The lounge area of the saloon has a large L-shaped settee and cocktail table to port while to starboard are two barrel chairs and another cocktail table, ideal for guests to relax with a drink in hand. The entertainment centre includes a 42 inch Sony flat screen television and has stereo surround sound. Forward is a formal dining area with a high gloss cherry wood table surrounded by a curving settee and three custom chairs. Further forward still is a fully equipped galley with a cosy banquette serving up breakfasts and casual snacks.
Outdoor living is catered for by a large aft deck with seating and a table, but the highlight must be the huge flybridge, offering two helm seats forward, plenty of seating and sun pads, a fridge and a custom hard top providing shade from the noonday sun. Twin 1,400hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots.
Lying in Florida, Choini was asking $1,375,000.
