by Malcolm Maclean
The 36 metre motor yacht Phoenix, listed for sale by Peter Hurzeler at Ocean Independence, has been sold with the buyer introduced by A Prima Vista in Germany.
Designed by Bill Dixon, Phoenix was built in GRP by Turkish yard Leight Notika to Bureau Veritas class and was delivered in 2003. MCA compliant, she accommodates up to nine guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite on the main deck, a full width VIP suite and two twins, one with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
The interior of this yacht for sale was designed by Birgit Schnaase and built by Metrica. Materials are top quality and of light weight construction. Book matched pear wood veneer paneling is used extensively throughout and the lighting system is all LED (all new 2013), very well planned and of high quality. The main saloon is light and airy with settees and armchairs upholstered in grey leather facing a sophisticated entertainment centre including a Panasonic 42 inch plasma television screen and there is a formal dining area forward with seating for six guests.
The aft deck is ready to welcome guests for al fresco dining with a settee, chairs and a table while the flybridge is even more spectacular, offering ample seating, a bar, fridge, sink and electric barbecue grill plus a large Jacuzzi and several sun loungers. Twin 1,826hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Phoenix was asking €1,500,000.
