Horizon motor yacht Espresso sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 37.2 metre motor yacht Espresso, listed for sale by Burgess, has been sold with Rob Dolling at Verpeka Dolling introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Taiwanese yard Horizon Yachts to a design by JC Espinosa, she was delivered in 2009 as an Elegance 120 model. An interior by Guido De Groot in whitewashed oak accommodates 10 guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins along with two Pullman berths, all with entertainment centres, Loewe television screens and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for six crew.
The expansive saloon has a sophisticated lighting system, settees to port and starboard, off-white carpeting and an entertainment centre-including a 50 inch LG television screen. Forward is a formal dining area with seating for all 10 guests and storage cabinets for tableware. The aft deck is arranged for al fresco dining with built in upholstered seating, a table and several chairs, plus steps down to the broad swim platform.
A popular charter yacht, she came with a full complement of water toys, including two Novurania tenders, snorkelling gear and a range of towables including water skis.
The flybridge offers an upper helm station, sun longers, a wet bar and a dining area protected from the sun by a custom hard top fitted with a retractable Bimini top. Twin 3,650hp MTU diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 16 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
Espresso was asking €3,850,000.
