by Malcolm Maclean
The 24.3 metre motor yacht Blue Moon II, listed for sale by Whit Kirtland at Bradford Marine Yacht Sales, has been sold with Pete Woods at Woods & Associates introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by US yard Hatteras, Blue Moon II was launched in 2007 and has unusual volumes for her size including a large aft deck with al fresco dining for seven guests. A full beam main saloon has a lounge area with a bar to starboard and seating to port and an entertainment centre including a 50 inch pop-up television screen while forward of this is a formal dining area seating six guests around an oval dining table with custom inlays. High gloss cherry wood panelling surrounds the area and complements the glass fronted cabinetry with storage for china, cutlery and glassware. Further forward still is a very spacious galley offering a cosy dinette space for sociable informal breakfasts and snacks.
On the bridge deck, aft of the twin helm station, are loungers to port and starboard complemented by a full wet bar, fridge, ice maker and a pop-up flat screen television.
Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins. The master suite is full beam and features six large windows, and there is a VIP suite, a double and a twin cabin.
All cabins have en suite bathrooms. Blue Moon II has a modified V-hull design, and twin 1,650hp Caterpillar engines power her to a cruising speed of 21 knots and a maximum speed of 25 knots.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Blue Moon II was asking $2,850,000.
