Trident superyacht American Pride sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 38 metre motor yacht American Pride is sold with John Cohen at Merle Wood & Associates representing the seller and Emerald Pacific Yachts acting for the buyer.
Built in GRP by US yard Trident to a design by Sergio Cutolo, American Pride was delivered in 1999 as a semi displacement yacht and was fully refitted in 2013. The multi million dollar refit included a new interior by Claudette Bonville, fresh paint, new teak decks, new Caterpillar C32 main engines, new 65Kw Generators and Naiad zero speed stabilizers. MCA compliant, she accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, two VIP doubles and a twin, all with en suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon is aft, while forward lie the wheelhouse, country galley and crew quarters. The dining area is in the forward part of the saloon, featuring a custom built circular Anigre wood table top and base with burled inlays complemented by six upholstered armchairs. Display cabinets, storage for silver and flatware and additional counter height cabinets are incorporated into the room for ample storage. Across to port is an L-shaped bar with four swivel stools and an abundance of working space.
The relaxation area is large, elegant and extremely comfortable with several seating arrangements, beautifully accented tables, lamps and chairs and generous windows. An entertainment system is centered along the aft bulkhead, while doors to port and starboard allow access to the aft deck. Twin 1,600hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and a range of 2,500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
American Pride was asking $5.9 million.
