IYC sells Westport superyacht Miss Michelle with Worth Avenue Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Good news from Michael Mahan at Worth Avenue Yachts that he has closed on his listing for sale, the 40 metre motor yacht Miss Michelle, with Barbara Stork at International Yacht Collection representing the buyer.
Miss Michelle was built in GRP by US superyacht yard Westport and was delivered in 2009 as one of the yard’s 130 series. ABS classed and MCA compliant, she is the first Westport 130 with the updated design introduced in 2009. Her knowledgeable owner had the budget to make her a superb build and as a result she is the most customised yacht of the series.
The main saloon is warm and welcoming, located on the main deck and accessed through double doors on the aft deck. There is a conversation area with four occasional chairs, a coffee table and sofa along with an entertainment centre containing a 50 inch pop-up Runco television with surround sound, Kaleidescape DVD/CD server and an iPod docking station. The dining area is forward of the saloon and can seat up to 10 guests with buffets to port and starboard.
Superyacht Miss Michelle‘s skylounge is a favourite gathering space with spacious seating, a full bar with three stools, a games table, a relaxing sofa and a 50 inch HD television linked to the Kaleidescape DVD/CD system and surround sound.
Accommodation is for up to 11 guests in five staterooms comprising a master suite, two VIP staterooms located to port and to starboard plus two twin cabins. All staterooms have television screens and entertainment systems and all come with full en suite facilities. Twin 2,735hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 20 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Miss Michelle was asking $15,950,000.
