B & B explorer yacht Surfbird sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 36.05 metre explorer yacht Surfbird, listed for sale by Tom Allen at Fraser Yachts, has been sold to a direct client.
Built in steel by B & B Boatworks to a design by Norton & Associates, she was delivered in 2006 with her most recent refit in 2011. Accommodation is for up to 10 guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite and three doubles plus two Pullman berths, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for four crew.
Entrance to the main saloon is via sliding doors from the aft deck and there is a U-shaped settee to port with an entertainment centre including a large flat screen television set to starboard. Forward to starboard is a dining area with a custom crafted table seating eight guests while the saloon is separated from the galley by a cabinet housing two fridge drawers, an ice maker and storage cabinets for tableware.
Al fresco cocktails and dining are available on the aft deck at a custom table and built in upholstered settees. Steps lead up to the sky lounge designed for pure relaxation, offering a comfortable cocktail seating area in front of an entertainment centre with a bar close to hand, while aft on the upper deck is a Jacuzzi tub.
Twin 475hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a sedate but comfortable cruising speed of eight knots.
Lying in Seattle, Washington, Surfbird was asking $2,900,000.
