by Malcolm Maclean
The 32 metre motor yacht Elizabeth R, listed for sale by Thom Conboy and Chris Collins atOcean Independence, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Kristen Klein and Kevin Merrigan at Northrop & Johnson.
Built in aluminium by US yard Burger to a design by Don O’Keefe, she was delivered in 2001 as a raised pilothouse model and has been upgraded several times since. A classically-styled interior in quarter-sawn mahogany accommodates eight guests in four cabins comprising a master suite, VIP suite and two twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep four members of staff.
In the saloon there is a U-shaped sectional sofa to starboard with a glass cocktail table and occasional seating opposite. The saloon offers a dining table on the starboard side while a bar is located forward with plenty of space for guests to relax. Large windows complement the saloon and offer great views.
The flybridge has a centerline helm station forward with full engine controls and gauges. There is a pedestal-mounted helm chair facing forward with excellent visibility over the clear plexiglass windscreen forward. There is additional flybridge bench seating to port and starboard and aft just forward of the hinged radar mast and boat deck. A Bimini top protects the flybridge seating area from the heat of the sun.
Her top speed is 21 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 2,500 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 1,400hp Caterpillar 3412E diesel engines.
Elizabeth R was asking $3,495,000.
