The 28.32 metre motor yacht Crystal Spirit 1, listed for sale by Sean Doyle at Cambridge Yacht Group, has been sold.
Built in GRP by Canadian yard Palmer Marine to a design by Jack Sarin, she was delivered in 1989 and had a total refit in 2000 including upgrades throughout and new engines. A relaxing, comfortable interior is created by the use of maple wood paneling and fine fabrics, and she accommodates eight guests in four cabins.
These consist of a master suite and a VIP suite plus port and starboard twin cabins, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, the port cabin can serve as extra crew quarters.
The main saloon is large and open plan, with free standing furniture, a bar to starboard and large windows. Forward is a dining area with seating for eight guests, while the fully equipped country style kitchen has a dinette where guests can enjoy sociable breakfasts and casual snacks through the day.
Outdoors, a spacious aft deck offers built-in upholstered seating, a table and chairs for al fresco cocktails and meals while up on the flybridge there is further built in seating, a barbecue, fridge and storage space aft for a tender and two jet skis.
Twin MAN 820hp engines give her a cruising speed of 15 knots and she has been retrofitted with Naiad zero speed stabilizers.
Lying in Vancouver, Canada, Crystal Spirit 1 was asking $900,000.
