The news is doubly welcome in that it marks 38 sales so far in December as against 19 yachts new on the market, meaning that gains are being made in clearing the backlog of yachts for sale. A further point is that this is sale number 335 in 2013 – yet another record; there were 272 yachts sold in 2012.
Espresso III is an aluminium semi-displacement yacht built by Trinity in 2004. A Dee Robinson interior in marble and raised panel cherry wood accommodates 10 guests in five cabins. The master suite is on the main deck with a king size bed, built in settee, vanity unit and a his and hers en suite bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi tub. Below decks, there are two VIP staterooms and a double and twin cabin, all with entertainment systems and full en suite bathroom facilities.
Twin 2,250hp Caterpillar engines give Espresso III a cruising speed of 15 knots, a transatlantic range of 3,500 nautical miles at 10 knots, and she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers for added comfort. Additionally, her shallow draught of 2.1 metres allows for the opportunity to cruise the shallow waters of the Caribbean and The Bahamas.
