by Malcolm Maclean
The 37.8 metre motor yacht Ocean Drive, listed for sale by Bob Cury at RJC Yacht Sales, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Felix Mari at Mari Yachts.
Built in aluminium by US yard Broward Marine, Ocean Drive was delivered in 1988 with full refits in 2015 and 2018. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins configured as a full beam master suite, two doubles with queen sized beds and a twin, all with en suite bathroom facilities.
An open plan saloon has comfortable seating in the aft lounge area with an entertainment centre including a large television screen and a stereo surround sound system and there is a formal dining area forward while the galley has the trademark Broward country-style kitchen incorporating a dinette for casual breakfasts and snacks. Further forward is a separate ‘Club Room’ offering a full wet bar and a 300-bottle wine cellar.
Outdoors, the spacious main deck aft, with al fresco dining for eight guests, can be fully enclosed and air-conditioned. Upstairs, the sky lounge aft deck is huge and offers a shaded dining area aft and a lounge area forward with comfortable armchairs and an optional awning for shelter from the midday sun. Twin 1,200hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and she is equipped with all the large yacht options including Naiad stabilisers, a hydraulic bow thruster and Northern Light 65KW generators.
Ocean Drive was asking $1,895,000.
