Delta Marine motor yacht Invader sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Sold just three months ago, the 37.2 metre motor yacht SOC - renamed Invader - has been sold again, with Ken Denison at Denison Yachting representing the seller and Bob Cury at RJC Yachts introducing the buyer.
Formerly known as Silver Oak Cellars but usually shortened simply to SOC, she was built in GRP by US yard Delta Marine to an in-house design and delivered in 1997 with a refit in 2013 including new engines. Accommodation is for up to eight guests in four cabins comprising a master suite, a VIP suite on the main deck and two doubles, all with flatscreen televisions, entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon has ample storage in buffets to port and starboard and within waist-high cabinetry, which separates the dining room, seating eight guests, from the lounge area, with comfortable seating facing a entertainment centre including a 55-inch flatscreen Samsung television and stereo surround sound system.
The aft deck, complete with a full wet bar, can serve as an al fresco dining space, although glass sliding windows enable it to be completely enclosed and air conditioned or heated.
The skylounge on the third deck is full-beam and has a fully equipped wet bar, ice maker and entertainment centre featuring a large screen Toshiba television set. Aft on this deck is an outdoor seating area, table and barbecue grill.
Twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines power her to a maximum speed of 22 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Invader was asking $4,500,000 and, renamed Lanida, she will go through a full interior refit through the summer before joining the RJC Yachts charter fleet.
