Chamberlain sells Oceanfast superyacht Echo with Merle Wood
by Malcolm MacLean
John Cohen at Merle Wood & Associates tells me he's closed on his central listing for sale, the 39 metre motor yacht Echo, with Kent Chamberlain at Chamberlain Yacht Sales representing the buyer.
Built by Australian superyacht yard Oceanfast to a design by Jon Bannenberg, Echo was launched in 1990. Sensation Yachts in New Zealand undertook a major conversion in 2003, which also saw her hull lengthened. Anita Unger was responsible for the interior decor accommodating eight guests in four staterooms plus seven crew in three cabins.
Her well designed exterior decks feature plenty of space ideal for relaxing, al fresco dining and water sports.
A recent refit featured rebuilds of her jet drives, main engines and exhaust systems, fresh Awlgrip paint, revamped electrical & domestic systems and a stunning new décor. Twin Deutz 1,850hp engines give her a range of 1,400 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 18 knots.
Echo was asking $3,995,000.
