Superyacht SnowbirD now for sale with Edmiston
by Malcolm MacLean
Robert Shepherd at Edmiston sends word of their appointment as central agent for the sale of SnowbirD, the 39m Hakvoort, launched just a year ago as Pretty Woman, and whose previous sale I reported in November 2010.
Built to a design by Cor D Rover, the yacht’s striking contemporary interior was designed around a modern art collection by David Ostrander, the owner’s son, with Michaela Reverberi, and is featured in Best of the Best 2011. It accommodates 10 guests in a main deck full beam master suite, two doubles and two twins.
Guest areas include an open-plan main saloon/dining area, a bridge deck saloon that opens to a sociable aft deck with seating and a teak table for alfresco dining, and a sundeck complete with spa pool, bar, barbecue, sofas and sunpads.
Ideal for charter, the yacht is equipped with a range of watersports equipment and toys, including jet skis, Seabobs and assorted towable toys.
Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, this superyacht has a range of 5,500 nautical miles at nine knots, and is powered by twin 600hp CAT diesels to a maximum speed of 13 knots.
SnowbirD, which is currently lying in the South of France, is asking €22 million, and is also available for charter through Edmiston from €140,000 per week.
