$2 million price drop on Lurssen superyacht Blind Date at Merle Wood and Burgess
by Malcolm MacLean
News arrives overnight of a major $2 million price reduction on the 40.94m Lürssen motor yacht Blind Date, a joint listing with Merle Wood and John Cohen at Merle Wood & Associates and Burgess.
This superyacht is a combination of European pedigree and American interior design. Originally built in Germany to Bureau Veritas class in 1995 for a European owner, she was superbly maintained and was even stored ashore under cover during the winter months. Under new American ownership she was refitted in 2005. The interior of the yacht was completely rebuilt under the careful eye of designer Patrick Knowles and transformed to create the cool and calm ambiance which makes her rather special today.
Blind Date is a fast, sleek yacht with a top speed of 22 knots and her shallow draft grants access to those quiet bays and coves inaccessible to many. She accommodates eight guests in a master, VIP and two double cabins and has a range of 1,600 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Lying in South Florida, Blind Date is now asking $7.5 million.
