Pershing Motor Yacht Sipsey Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24.97 metre motor yacht Sipsey, listed for sale by Sean Fenniman at Allied Marine, has been sold in-house with the buyer introduced by Dean Anthony.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Pershing to a design by Fulvio de Simoni,Sipsey was delivered in 2016 as a Pershing 82 VHP model and has been regularly upgraded since. Her interior, also by Fulvio di Simoni, uses oak hardwoods and Italian fabrics to great effect, accommodating six guests in three cabins comprising a master suite, VIP suite and a twin. All guest cabins have entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities while a further cabin sleeps two crewmembers.
The full beam main saloon has comfortable furniture in the lounge area facing an entertainment centre featuring a 40-inch Samsung television screen and a kaleidescape server delivering on-demand video and audio throughout the guest areas. Forward is a formal dining area, bar and a fridge. A light and bright upper saloon features a rounded seating area and coffee table and helm station, and leads directly out on to the upper deck with indoor-outdoor flow integral to the design.
Twin 2,600hp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines allow for a blistering top speed of more than 50 knots, with a fast cruising speed of 45 knots, making the Pershing 82 VHP model one of the world’s fastest superyachts.
Her broker, Dean Anthony, comments: “She was listed for sale in December 2019 and was under contract on January 6th 2020. The deal miraculously stayed together throughout the Covid-19 crisis and closed on March 28th 2020.”
Sipsey was asking $3,695,000.
