50m Feadship Motor Yacht Broadwater Sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 50.3 metre motor yacht Broadwater, listed for sale by Michael Mahan at Worth Avenue Yachts, has been sold in-house with the buyer introduced by Debbie Beere.
With an interior and exterior design by Donald Starkey, Broadwater was delivered by Dutch yard Feadship in 2002. Built in aluminium to Lloyd's class and MCA compliancy, she has been carefully maintained to the highest standards and underwent a full exterior repaint along with interior upgrades in 2013. Her original build specification called for a seaworthy yacht capable of cruising anywhere in the world including the shallow waters of the Bahamas.
A charming and popular charter yacht, Broadwater employs large windows and carefully crafted natural wooden joinery to create a light-filled, elegant and airy atmosphere. The main saloon lounge area has comfortable seating and an entertainment centre, making this the perfect spot for relaxing with guests and friends. Forward is a formal dining area seating 12 guests that can be closed off for privacy.
The large deck areas offer plenty of spaces for sunbathing, evening cocktails or a meal under the stars. The bridge deck has a cosy lounging area while the sun deck offers a sheltered bar, barbecue grill, sunbathing area and a large Jacuzzi spa tub.
Broadwater has very versatile accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins. The full-beam master suite lying forward on the main deck has a white onyx en suite bathroom and an adjacent office and gymnasium. Guest accommodation on the lower level has flexible arrangements, as the two forward guest cabins and the two aft guest cabins are each equipped with sliding doors, allowing the option for two large VIP suites. These suites lead out into the guest lobby with full access to the wet bar, steam room and sauna. An additional guest cabin can be used for staff.
In early 2017, Broadwater completed a refit that included an entirely new interior and new exterior repaint to include a dark blue hull. Powered by twin 1,500hp Caterpillar diesel engines, she has an impressive range of 5,000 nautical miles and is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers,
Broadwater was asking $22,900,000.
