New Crescent 144 superyacht for sale at Fraser Yachts

16 October 2011By Malcolm MacLean

Neal Esterly at Fraser Yachts in San Diego tells me about his latest new listing, a 43.9m Crescent 144 currently under construction at Crescent Custom Yachts' yard in Vancouver.

Naval architecture is by Jack Sarin, and her contemporary, yet timeless, exterior and interior styling and layout by Jonathan Quinn Barnett

She is being built in composite, with particular attention being given to achieving low sound and vibration levels. Accommodation is for ten guests in five generous staterooms plus up to nine crew in five cabins.

One of her most notable features, of which there are many, is the large fold down transom door that transforms the swim platform into a portable beach for lounging and easy access to the water and tenders.

Construction is approximately 70% complete, with around 12 months of work remaining.

The Crescent 144 is asking $18.9 million, a considerable discount on the money spent on her so far. As Neal says, 'she represents a unique opportunity to acquire a high quality and innovative build that is approximately 70% completed.'
