Johnson motor yacht Clarity sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.52 metre motor yacht Clarity, listed for sale by Mike Scalisi at HMY Yachts, is sold.
Built in GRP by Taiwanese yard Johnson Yachts to a design by Bill Dixon, she was delivered in 2004 as a Johnson 87 model and accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite, a double and a twin, all with full en suite bathroom facilities. All cabins also have individual climate control, satellite television, DVD and CD players.
Outside deck areas include a very pleasant flying bridge, semi-shaded by a hard top, that offers plenty of comfortable seating, a full wet bar, a Jacuzzi and a music system. The yacht's interior is accessed via the raised pilot house or through wide doors from the aft deck. High gloss cherry wood adorns the large saloon, which is partially separated from the formal dining area that offers seating for eight.
While under her original ownership, Clarity has been all over the world. She traveled extensively throughout the Mediterranean, transited the Panama Canal and went back and forth to Alaska on her own bottom.
Since her purchase in autumn 2009, she has been under a continuous programme of upgrades including an extensive refit which left no component or shipboard system untouched. The refit, which cost approximately $800,000, was overseen by her full time crew of four and completed in late spring/early summer of 2010. The final phase of this refit was a comprehensive yacht charter certification process conducted by Marshall Islands officials.
Her 2012 upgrades consisted of a brand new paint job for the entire boat. The crew quarters were redone and a dive compressor was added for owner and charter guest scuba diving adventures. Twin MTU diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a maximum speed of 17 knots.
Clarity was asking $2,195,000.
