Merle Wood and Northrop & Johnson sell motor yacht Beothuk

27 February 2013By Malcolm MacLean

Michael Nethersole at Northrop & Johnson calls with great news that the 31.1m motor yacht Beothuk sold today with Cromwell Littlejohn at Merle Wood & Associates bringing the buyer.

Michael generously pays special tribute to Cromwell's work in ensuring the yacht sold within a few weeks of coming on the market.

Much admired by the yachting cognoscenti, Beothuk was built by Kuipers in 2008 and was the first new build yacht to be fitted entirely with LED lights. She received a Judges Commendation at the 2009 World Superyacht Awards.

Vripack were responsible for her exterior styling and interior design and she is packed with facilities and comforts way beyond her size range. One notable feature is her luminous dining area in the forward position on the main deck. Beothuk accommodates six guests in three staterooms: a full-beam master suite, a double and a twin. Twin 600hp Caterpillar engines give her a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.

Beothuk was asking $11.9 million.
