Sunseeker motor yacht Merrick sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 28 metre motor yacht Merrick, listed for sale by Tim Morley and David Jakabovic at Morley Yachts in Monaco, has been sold with Marat Urusov at West Nautical introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by UK yard Sunseeker International, Merrick was delivered in 2013 and has been privately used to date. A dramatic interior by Lazzarini Pickering accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite with a dressing room, a VIP suite, a double and a twin convertible to a further double, all with entertainment systems, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
The saloon has massive sofas to port and starboard and a bar forward. The designers managed to create a modular dining table solution that means there is no need for a permanent dining table inside, and the lounge area has a state of the art entertainment centre including a 55 inch Samsung LED television on a rise and fall mechanism plus a Bose stereo surround sound system.
Outdoors, the aft deck has plenty of room for al fresco entertaining and dining and offers spacious areas to relax and sunbathe, including the option for a customised Jacuzzi and an expansive flybridge bar and grill area with a retractable hard top. Stairs from the aft deck lead down to a hydraulic swim platform which also serves as a launch and recovery pad for the custom tender.
Merrick has had a €2 million Platinum Package upgrade to all her systems and her bespoke qualities differentiate her from most other yachts in this series. Twin 1,950hp MTU diesel engines power her to a speed of 28 knots.
Merrick was asking €4.5 million with VAT paid.
