The 25 metre motor yacht Deck of Cards, listed for sale by Trevor Carroll at Fraser, has been sold with Gilman Yachts introducing the buyer.
Custom built in GRP by Taiwanese yard Horizon Yachts to a design by Tommaso Spadolini, Deck of Cards was delivered in 2001 and most recently refitted in 2017. Accommodation is for up to six guests in three cabins comprising a master suite, VIP suite and a twin, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en-suite bathroom facilities. A further two cabins can sleep up to three crewmembers.
The 5.2 metre long main saloon is sophisticated, airy and well-arranged. Along the portside is a custom built-in settee with end tables at each side and a pedestal cherry wood coffee table in front. Along the entire length of the starboard side is an integrated cherry wood cabinet housing a 16-bottle wine cooler, wine storage and an entertainment centre including a 42-inch Samsung television screen mounted on a rise and fall mechanism. Two steps up from the lounge area is a large country-style kitchen with black Galaxy granite countertops, top-of the-line appliances and a U-shaped dining area with seating for up to eight guests.
For relaxed al fresco entertainment, the flybridge is accessed via a nine-step staircase from the aft deck and can, if the weather becomes poor, be fully enclosed and air conditioned. On the starboard side is a large U-shaped couch behind a double pedestal table for casual meals. To port is a storage cabinet for dinnerware and a Samsung 24-inch television, while aft is a barbecue grill, and the entire deck is sheltered by a GRP hard top.
Twin 1,450hp Caterpillar diesel engines allow a cruising speed of 15 knots, topping out at 20 knots.
