$675,000 price drop on explorer yacht Chagos
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel by US yard Ocean Voyager, she was delivered in 2013 as a custom built explorer yacht to serve as a mothership and base of operations for chasing world record fish off the coast of West Africa. Her no-frills interior has accommodation for six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and a twin, all with en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for two crew, although this yacht for sale was designed to be easily handled by a husband and wife team.
The saloon has L-shaped seating, a table and a separate dining area with built-in upholstered seating for six guests. Her hull is based on a proven commercial fishing boat design offering an economical long range, low maintenance costs, high reliability and optimum performance at sea.
She comes equipped with a custom built ‘flats’ fishing boat, space for tenders and water toys of all shapes and a Palfinger knuckle-style commercial crane capable of launching the fishing boat on either side of the vessel.
Other features include a stainless steel commercial grade galley, LED lighting throughout and state of the art Simrad electronics with many built-in redundant systems. Twin 350hp Cummins diesel engines give her a cruising speed of eight knots.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Chagos is now asking $1,000,000.
