Burger Motor Yacht Life of Reilley Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 34.14 metre motor yacht Life of Reilley, listed for sale by Frank and Katya Grzeszczak at IYC, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in aluminium by US yard Burger to a design by Don O’Keefe and delivered in 2003 with her most recent refit in 2018, Life of Reilley is Burger's first expedition yacht and the first full-displacement hull in the yard’s modern-day history. Accommodation, in an interior by Linda Street Design, is for 10 guests in five cabins laid out as a main deck master suite, two VIP suites and two twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep seven staff.
The large main saloon offers ample lounge seating, an entertainment centre including a large screen television set, a formal dining table and a display cabinet for crystal and glassware. A spiral staircase connects all key guest spaces, leading down from the main saloon to guest accommodation and up to the skylounge, which is a relaxed space with welcoming seating areas, games tables and a modern entertainment system.
The aft deck is fully enclosed and offers air-conditioning or heating, a built-in dining table with seating, along with a wet-bar and stools. Her top speed is 14 knots and her power comes from two 800hp Caterpillar 3406-E diesel engines. For added comfort and safety, she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers.
Life of Reilley was asking $7,650,000.
