by Laura Nineham
The 28.65 metre Heesen motor yacht The Flying Dutchman has been listed for sale with Crow’s Nest Yachts. Her owner is keen to sell before the end of the year, according to the broker.
Launched in 1985, The Flying Dutchman has been completely refit with almost every sub-system repaired, rebuilt or replaced. As you’d expect of a yacht owned by the CEO of a commercial coatings and adhesives company, the paint systems inside and out are impeccable.
The Flying Dutchman features naval architecture and exterior design by Mulder Design with interior design by Art-Line and Susan Allison. She’s characterised by her classic lines and Dutch pedigree and has seen more than $3 million invested in her in recent years.
Her full beam main saloon has a full-service bar, a U-shaped sofa for eight, an entertainment centre and a large dining table that seats eight.
Previously known as Voyager, TheFlying Dutchman accommodates 10 guests in five en suite cabins. The master suite sits amidships and has a king size bed, a walk-in wardrobe, a settee, vanity table and full entertainment centre. It also has his and hers baths with a large Jacuzzi and stall shower. The other guest suites are doubles and en suites, including a spacious VIP room.
The flybridge on The Flying Dutchman has an upper helm station with a wet bar in the middle and a bench seat to starboard. The sun deck aft has a wrap-around settee and can be shielded from the sun with a canvas canopy.
Lying in California, The Flying Dutchman is asking $1,795,000 with Crow’s Nest Yachts.
