A €1,100,000 price drop has been announced on the 41-metre fast sloop Destination, listed for sale with Northrop & Johnson's Ann Avery.
Designed by Ed Dubois and built by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand, she was delivered in 2001 to MCA compliance. Her 20-year ABS survey was completed in 2021 following a major $4 million refit in 2020.
Upgrades included transforming her interior with the re-veneer of the upper saloon and pilothouse bulkheads, using wood from the original stock. Headlinings, floorings and soft furnishings were also all replaced.
The all-aluminium yacht for sale was also repainted and completed a major rig survey and upgrade, while her engine, generators and systems were refurbished or replaced as necessary. Her eight-year-old teak decks have also recently been thoroughly recaulked. The refit also saw the original Redman Whiteley interior refreshed by Reymond Langton Design.
Destination's interior includes a panoramic upper saloon-pilothouse with a lounge area featuring a deep sofa, custom bar and a spacious dining table for eight. Natural light fills the space through the trademark Dubois wraparound, raked windscreen, filtering down into her main saloon allowing for a light and bright ambience.
Her main saloon is the dedicated lounging and socializing hub of the yacht, with a large sofa and chairs complemented by a handcrafted coffee table. The interior is finished in elegant flame mahogany, lacquered to a high gloss finish, balanced with light-coloured fabrics and soft textures.
Up to eight guests are accommodated in Destination's four elegant cabins. The master suite is full-beam with a king-sized bed, plenty of storage and a cosy daybed area. There are two identical staterooms forward, each with centreline queen-size beds and an additional smaller cabin with a single and a Pullman berth. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms.
Destination’s cockpit is accessed from the aft deck between the twin helm stations. To one side is a large lounging sofa and to the other a settee and chairs surround a large table, perfect for al fresco dining. A Bimini covers the cockpit and fold-up clear curtains allow the breeze when desired and can be pulled down to protect from inclement weather.
A built-in passerelle and an opening transom with a shower and dimmable lighting provide a platform for tender and water access. One of Destination’s most notable features is her additional custom boarding platform to starboard midships. Part of the hull swings down to provide a safe and stable platform for tender access or watersports.
The 209 GT yacht for sale has a top speed of 13 knots, 2,800-nautical-mile range, and cruising speed of 10 knots.
Destination is now asking €12,400,000. She will be on display at the Palma International Boat Show.
