Delta Marine motor yacht Grumpy sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 35.75 metre motor yacht Grumpy, listed for sale by Tucker Fallon at Bradford Marine Yacht Sales, has been sold with Yachtzoo introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by US yard Delta Marine to an in-house design, Grumpy was delivered in 1996 as a long-range cruising yacht. Her traditional interior by Patrick Knowles features satin-finished teak accommodating up to six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and a twin, all with entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for three crew.
Just inside the aft doors to the saloon is a large wet bar, conveniently located for servicing the aft deck and the lounge area, and there is a separate fridge and ice maker, both with teak doors rather than the conventional stainless steel. Forward to port is a conversational seating area with settees, two arm chairs and two barrel chairs facing an entertainment centre including a large television screen, mounted on a rise and fall mechanism, and a stereo surround sound system. The formal dining area is forward and has an expansive table with seating for eight guests. Forward of the saloon is an office with sliding doors that can be closed off for privacy.
At the flybridge helm is a Stidd chair sheltered by a GRP hard top and a three-sided acrylic enclosure while L-shaped guest seating is located to port and starboard.
Twin 642hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a top speed of 14 knots and a maximum cruising range of 3,400 nautical miles at 13 knots.
Grumpy was asking $2,995,000.
