Broward motor yacht Serendipity sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 31.4 metre motor yacht Serendipity, listed for sale by Neal Esterly at Fraser in San Diego, has been sold in an in-house deal with Tom Allen introducing the buyer.
Built in aluminium by US yard Broward,Serendipity was delivered in 1998 as the last boat built by this iconic yard. Her wide body configuration extends forward of the wheelhouse and creates an enormous country kitchen dining area suitable for large numbers of dinner guests. She can accommodate up to eight guests in four private cabins all with en suite bathrooms, Samsung television screens and DVD systems, and up to four crew aft. Guest accommodation consists of a master suite with a king size bed, a VIP suite with a queen size bed, a starboard double and a port twin cabin.
In the main saloon are comfortable sofas, six occasional chairs in maple, a remote-controlled coffee table that converts to an alternative dining table and an entertainment centre including a satellite television screen. Outdoors, an expansive aft deck has easily enough space to seat eight guests for al fresco entertaining and dining.
Serendipity has a vast flybridge designed specifically for lounging and entertaining and includes a barbecue area, wet bar, five metre Zodiac tender and a custom hard top. Her custom interior in mahogany was tastefully updated by a knowledgeable owner and additional upgrades include new Awlgrip paint in 2014, new teak decks and a major overhaul of her engines. The engines, twin 1,100hp Detroit Diesels, give her a cruising speed of 14.5 knots.
Serendipity was asking $1,850,000.
