Superyacht Beothuk sold by Vripack and Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Hot news arrives as Maarten Ten Holter at Vripack Yacht & Ship Brokers says his joint listing with Chuck MacMahon at Northrop & Johnson, the 31.1m motor yacht Beothuk is now sold, with Chuck's colleague Michael Nethersole acting for the buyer.
A technological tour de force, Beothuk was built by Kuipers in 2008 and was the first new build yacht to be fitted entirely with LED lights. She received a much-deserved Judges Commendation at the 2009 World Superyacht Awards.
Vripack were responsible for her exterior styling and interior design and she is packed with facilities and comforts way beyond her size range. One notable feature is her luminous dining area in the forward position on the main deck. Beothuk accommodates six guests in three staterooms: a full-beam master suite, a double and a twin and was asking $12.9 million.
