The 47.2-metre Christensen motor yacht Zeal has been sold with Denison Yachting's Kurt Bosshart introducing the buyer and IYC's Katya Hall representing the seller.
Zeal was built in GRP to ABS class by the US shipyard and delivered in 1997 with exterior styling by Glade Johnson and Donald Starkey. She is heralded as one of the industry's most successful charter yachts and has been well-maintained throughout her life. In 2012, she was stripped back to the hull and comprehensively refitted over 18 months (with a further refit in 2018) and joined the market in 2022 following another extensive yard period.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in six cabins comprising a main deck master suite and four doubles, which are convertible to twins. The sixth and final cabin, located aft of the master, has been modelled as a staff or children’s cabin and is ideal for a nanny. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities, as is the norm for today's superyachts for sale.
The main saloon is a refined space featuring oversized seating and a coffee table, a pop up television screen, and direct access to the aft deck. A formal dining space is positioned just aft of the main foyer, with seating for all guests. Up a level, the sky lounge is the focal guest area and delivers a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of seating, a modern entertainment system, wet bar and games table.
The vast sun deck is a true highlight, with features shaded lounge seating, an al fresco dining table, sun loungers, a four-person sunbed, barbecue, spa pool and control station.
Her top speed is 19 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles at 12 knots with power coming from two 2,200hp Deutz-MWM TBD604BV12 diesel engines.
Zeal was asking $9,900,000.
