The 37.5 metre motor yacht BB3, listed for sale by Wes Sanford at Northrop & Johnson, is sold with Ryan Woods at Woods & Associates introducing the buyer.

Built by US yard Palmer JohnsonBB3 was delivered in 2006 as the second hull in the yard's 123’ series. Exterior styling is by Venice-based naval architects Nuvolari Lenard who also designed her interior, which uses walnut and sycamore panelling throughout along with Italian fabrics and custom furniture to create an atmosphere of sheer elegance and relaxation. An expansive open plan saloon with joinery in traditional hardwoods has several large settees, a full entertainment centre with a large television screen and leads into a formal dining area for eight guests. The extensive aft and sun decks have al fresco entertaining and dining facilities with seating, tables and wet bars.
