by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.82 metre motor yacht Grumpy, listed for sale by Tucker Fallon at Ship’s Wheel, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Russ Schafer at Denison Yachting.
Built in GRP by Taiwanese yard Johnson Yachts to a design by Bill Dixon, Grumpy was delivered in 2003. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins. All cabins aboard have entertainment centres, flatscreen television sets and en suite bathroom facilities.
Outside deck areas include a flybridge, semi-shaded by a hard top, that offers plenty of comfortable seating, a full wet bar, a Jacuzzi and a music system. The yacht's interior is accessed via the raised pilot house or through wide doors from the aft deck. High gloss cherry wood adorns the large saloon, which is partially separated from the formal dining area that offers seating for eight. In the aft lounge area of the saloon is comfortable seating, a large bar and an entertainment centre including a television screen.
The large aft deck lends itself to al fresco entertaining and dining, offering a U-shaped banquette seating eight guests and a custom adjustable dining table. Her top speed is 23 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 1,600 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 2,000hp MTU 12V2000M91 diesel engines.
Grumpy was asking $1,799,000.
