Price drop on part-built Crescent 144 motor yacht at Fraser
by Malcolm MacLean
Neal Esterly at Fraser Yachts in San Diego tells me of a $4.4 million price reduction on the part-completed 43.9m Crescent 144 motor yacht currently for sale under an order by a Canadian court.
Naval architecture is by Jack Sarin, and her contemporary 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 beach deck for lounging and easy access to the water and tenders.
Construction is approximately 70% complete, with around 10 months of work remaining.
The Crescent 144 is now down from $18.9 million to $14.5 million and Neal says, 'She's the best buy in the world for a high quality new build.'
