Westport motor yacht Joan’s Ark sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in GRP by US yard Westport to a design by Jack Sarin, Joan’s Ark was delivered in 2002 as one of the last old style Westport 112’ models to be launched. She was purchased in 2010 by a very knowledgeable yachtsman, who has completely customized the interior by replacing all the soft goods, adding custom cabinetry plus new marble, lighting, appliances, electronics, audio/visual system, renovation of the saloon bar and new flybridge seating. In 2014, a complete exterior paint job was carried out.
Comfortable accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins including a VIP suite forward on the main deck. A stairway leads down to a master suite with a king sized bed along with a double and a twin cabin, all with en suite bathrooms.
The large saloon has a sunken bar located aft to port and a formal dining area in the forward saloon. There are buffet cabinets with custom Lucite restraints for storage of formal dinnerware and crystal in addition to two drawers for silverware and serving utensils. The wet bar features a Scotsman ice-maker, liquor storage cabinet and stainless steel sink with hot and cold water and a granite countertop with four bar stools.
The aft deck is accessed through large stainless steel, counter balanced double doors and has a large U-shaped seating area with two large occasional chairs providing comfortable seating for up to 10 guests. Twin 1,800hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 20 knots.
Joan’s Ark was asking $3,995,000
