Denison motor yacht News sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 36.88 metre motor yacht News, listed for sale by Kit Denison at Denison Yacht Sales, has been sold in-house with Kurt Bosshardt introducing the buyer.
Built in aluminium by Denison Marine to a design by Joe Langlois, News was delivered in 1986 and was refitted in 1989 and 2002. Originally built as a four stateroom yacht, her two forward cabins were converted into one very large full beam master suite and she has a further double and a twin, all with entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities.
She has dual sliding stainless steel doors that lead into the spacious main saloon where large windows illuminate the beautiful teak panelling, inlaid with lighter burled ash. A grand piano is in the port aft corner, with several seating areas to encourage relaxation or casual conversation. Forward is a dining area with seating for six guests.
The large aft deck provides all that guests could need for al fresco entertaining including a table and chairs sheltered by a large awing. Up on the flybridge, a full wet bar with fridge, ice maker, and ample storage space is under the mast island. U-Shaped welded aluminum seating provides seating for over 15 guests, as well as storage underneath. Twin 1,530hp MTU diesel engines power her to a range of 3,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
News was asking $1,295,000.
