67 Metre Motor Yacht Global Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 67.06 metre motor yacht Global, listed for sale by Christopher Cooke at United Yacht Sales, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Camper & Nicholsons International Asia.
Originally built in steel and aluminium by US yard Bender,Global was delivered in 1982 as a workboat and was converted into a ‘sports utility vessel’ by Shadow Marine in 2007 under the direction of Boris Kiriloff. She offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in six suites comprising a master suite, four doubles and a twin. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, sea balconies and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep 13 staff.
Her main deck is the centre of activity, featuring a swim platform, large aft deck, and a helicopter hangar with an interior offering a galley, crew mess, games room, theatre/library, sauna and a gym. The theatre/library is luxurious and comfortable with spacious seating, including reclining couches and a 65-inch flatscreen television set.
Her heli-deck, measuring 15.24 metres by 10.36 metres, is much more than a landing pad, with an industrial grade fire suppression system, tie-downs and folding safety railings. As evidence of Global's versatility, this space doubles as a banquette area for large al fresco parties when not occupied by a helicopter. Her top speed is 13 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 10,000 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 1,250hp Caterpillar D399-SCAC diesel engines.
Global was asking $6,990,000.
