Lurssen superyacht Blind Date now for sale with Burgess and Merle Wood
by Malcolm MacLean
A quick call confirms that Merle Wood and John Cohen at Merle Wood & Associates have now joined Burgess to jointly list the 40.94m Lurssen motor yacht Blind Date for sale.
This superyacht is a combination of European pedigree and American interior design. Originally built in Germany in 1995 for a European owner, she was superbly maintained and was even stored ashore under cover during the winter months. Under new American ownership she was refitted in 2005. The interior of the yacht was completely rebuilt under the careful eye of designer Patrick Knowles and transformed to create the cool and calm ambiance which makes her rather special today.
Blind Date is a fast sleek yacht with a top speed of 22 knots - her shallow draft grants access to those quiet bays and coves inaccessible to many. She accommodates eight guests in a master, VIP and two double cabins and has a range of 1,600 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Available for inspection at the Miami Boat Show, Blind Date is asking $9.5 million.
