The recently refitted 56 metre Feadship motor yacht Broadwater has been sold by Worth Avenue Yachts and Ocean Independence in less than three months. Michael Mahan of Worth Avenue Yachts represented the seller while Jeremy Comport of Ocean Independence introduced the buyer.
The 1994 Feadship Broadwater joined the brokerage market in August after an extensive refit completed in 2020, which saw the yacht transformed into a commercially compliant, contemporary charter yacht with a reimagined interior by designer Adam Voorhees.
The refit, which lasted two years, took place at Royal Huisman’s refit division. It included fresh interiors, new owners’ and crew quarters, a four-metre stern extension, a new radar arch and carbon hardtop, and a new sundeck arrangement. The yacht went on to receive a Neptune at the 2021 World Superyacht Awards in the refit category.
Having been greatly inspired by the extensive collection of notable artwork on board, with influences ranging from classical French and Italian art deco to Indochine and mid-century Scandinavian, Broadwater’s interiors are now filled with loose furniture and organic shapes. Her bright living spaces make use of brushed rift European oak, open-grain black walnut and textured stone.
The main saloon is divided into two key zones - a lounge and a dining space - by a glass-fronted wine storage unit. Accommodation on board includes six cabins for 12 guests with seven cabins for 14 crew. The owners' suite also benefits from Voorhees’ new design with double ensuites connected by a glass shower.
Other highlights include a Jacuzzi on the sundeck and numerous al fresco dining options for entertaining friends and family on board.
Power comes from twin Caterpillar 3512B DITA engines for a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Broadwater was asking €29,500,000.
