Viking sportfish yacht Scooter sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 29 metre sportfish motor yacht Scooter, listed for sale by Steve Moynihan at HMY Yacht Sales, has been sold with Chris Carrere at Galati Yacht Sales introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by US yard Viking Yachts, Scooter was delivered in 2015 as one of the yard’s Viking 92 enclosed bridge models. Her neat profile includes dual mezzanine decks, one in the cockpit and the second on the main aft deck. The second mezzanine, off the saloon area, offers both rear facing lounge seating and a table for al fresco dining. Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a master suite, two doubles to starboard and two twins to port, all with full en-suite shower facilities. Crew quarters are situated aft with access from the cockpit.
Her 7.3 metre beam allows for a majestic saloon with built-in furniture and plush features such as a 65-inch flat screen television that rises on a lift out of the custom cabinetry. To starboard, there is a wet bar and walnut cabinetry. To port, a large U-shaped sofa provides plenty of space to relax and a dining room table with seating for six is situated forward of the sofa. The L-shaped island in the galley complements the working area and all counter tops are in custom granite.
The enclosed bridge is accessed off a stairwell in the aft portion of the saloon and practically equates to having a second saloon. Triple Stidd helm seats face the helm station and its impressive electronics, while a large L-shaped sofa and reclining chair provide additional space for relaxing and a place to enjoy the ride. Her twin 2,600hp MTU diesel engines power her to a maximum speed of 36 knots.
Scooter was asking $7,995,000.
