Kevin Bonnie at International Yacht Collection tells me he's just closed on the sale of the 45.5m motor yacht Applause with Burgess acting for the seller.
She was built by Oceanco in 1994 to a design by Richard Hein and the A Group. With her Dutch pedigree and all aluminium construction to ABS class, Applause combines guest comfort and luxury with performance. Her twin 3045hp MTU engines and semi-displacement hull form give a cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 24 knots, opening up a wide range of cruising possibilities.
Applause has a light, spacious interior with a sixth cabin on the upper deck and the lower deck VIP stateroom is convertible to a double and twin. She can therefore be a five or six stateroom yacht depending on the demands of charter clients.
Applause was asking $4.95 million and will now have a major refit including an extension. Renamed Anna J, she will be available for charter with IYC. For more information contact:
