Catamaran motor yacht Rogue sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 27.43 metre catamaran motor yacht Rogue, listed for sale by Josh Gulbranson and Trevor Carroll at Fraser, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Nicolas Valin at Neo Yachting.
Built in aluminium and originally delivered as a fishing vessel in 2004, she was converted into an explorer yacht by Ocean Voyager and relaunched in 2015. A major feature is her eight ton deck crane, unheard of in a vessel of this size, which allows for the launch of a large tender and even a submarine. Accommodation is for six guests in a master suite and two double cabins, all with en suite shower facilities. In addition, there are quarters for up to six crew.
The spacious saloon has a vaulted ceiling plus dining and relaxation areas along with an entertainment centre including a 55-inch Phillips flatscreen television. There are two large garages in the aft hulls that can be set up as dive centres, toy storage or fishing centres.
Her whole style and concept is for comfortable, low upkeep and efficient use. A major effort was made during her conversion to create a vessel with a large solar array so that she can lie at anchor without the use of noisy generators and she has a self-contained waste treatment system, LED lighting and low-energy air conditioning.
Twin 400hp Cummins diesel engines give her a range of 7,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Rogue was asking $1,750,000 and will be renamed Basilisk.
