59m Explorer Yacht Seawolf Sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 58.83 metre explorer yacht Seawolf, listed for sale by Jody O’Brien at Fraser, has been sold in an in-house deal with the buyer introduced by Dennis Frederiksen.
Originally built by Holland’s J&K Smit yard in 1957 as an oceangoing tug, Seawolf was converted into a superyacht by Astilleros de Palma in Mallorca from 1998 to 2004 and further upgraded and converted in 2008 and 2010. In 2016 she had a further extensive maintenance and refit period, including a complete repaint and main engine rebuild, so that she is now ready to cruise anywhere in the world.
An ice strengthened hull and superior seakeeping qualities combine to produce a versatile go-anywhere luxury yacht, compliant with the most recent safety and technological standards.
Accommodation is for up to 13 guests in five well appointed cabins, including the privacy of a separate owners deck with a full beam cabin, office/study and pantry. Other guest cabins are configured as a VIP suite, a double and two twins and all cabins have entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. A popular charter yacht, Seawolf is as much at home in the Western Mediterranean as the Southern Ocean.
Twin 1,500hp MAN diesel engines allow a cruising speed of ten knots, topping out at 13 knots, while 220,000 litre fuel tanks see her achieve a range of 9,600 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Seawolf was asking $9,900,000.
