Westport motor yacht Lyon’s Pride sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in GRP by US yard Westport with naval architecture by Jack Sarin, Lyon’s Pride was delivered in 2013 as the most highly customized Westport 112’ model ever built. Accommodation is below decks in four cabins consisting of a master suite with a king sized bed and an en suite bathroom with a his and hers bath, marble fittings and mosaic accents. The VIP suite has a queen sized bed and there is a second double with a queen sized bed plus a twin cabin, all with full en suite bathroom facilities.
Her stylish, ultra modern interior features sapele mahogany throughout along with many custom pieces including the sapele mahogany dining and cocktail tables in the main saloon, both of which feature inlaid back lit glass insets and stainless steel fittings. The lounge and dining area have custom marble flooring with carpeted inlays and there are granite counter tops on all of the buffets and entertainment centres. An additional detail is the recessed overheads throughout the yacht including a full skylight in the galley.
Outdoors, the spacious flybridge comes with teak decks, custom raised seating, a full wet bar, barbecue grill, a Jacuzzi hot tub along with a 19’ tender. Powered by 2,000hp MTU engines, she cruises comfortably at 20 knots with a 26 knot top speed. A 5,500 gallon fuel tank gives her an extended range of 2,500 nautical miles.
Lyon’s Pride was asking $12.5 million and now, as Black Swan, joins the RJC Yachts charter fleet.
