Price drop on Poole Chaffee classic superyacht Clarissa at BYS and Compass
by Malcolm MacLean
Heikki Luoma at Compass International tells me of a €100,000 price drop on his joint listing for sale with BYS, the 32m classic superyacht Clarissa.
Built in aluminium by Poole Chaffee, Clarissa was delivered in 1977, and in 1999 went to All American Marine to be lengthened by five metres, plus receive a full refit and repaint. Her full time crew and a lifetime of scheduled maintenance have ensured trouble free long range cruising including a transatlantic crossing from the US to Greece in 2008.
She has an unusual main deck feature with an aft deck that is both open and glass-enclosed and this, coupled with her massive flybridge, make her ideal for entertaining. She’s economical too, as her twin 650hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a range of 2,400 nautical miles sipping just 20 gallons per hour.
Clarissa sleeps eight guests in four staterooms comprising a master suite, double stateroom and two twin berth staterooms, all with en suite bathroom facilities.
Lying near Valencia, Spain, Clarissa is down to €550,000.
