by Malcolm Maclean
The 40 metre motor yacht Chiqui, listed for sale by Frank Grzeszczak and Katya Jaimes at IYC, has been sold with Rick Obey & Associates introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by British yard Sunseeker International to a design by Don Shead, Chiqui was delivered in 2011 as one of the yard’s popular 40m models and has had the same owner until now. A highly flexible interior accommodates up to 14 guests in five cabins consisting of a main deck master suite, two VIP suites and two twins plus two Pullman berths, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there is a fold-down double sleeper berth in the upper saloon.
The interior spreads across three decks and features hydraulic opening sea balconies on either side of the main deck saloon and on one side of the master suite - opening up magnificent seascapes and bringing in more natural light. Offering a well appointed foredeck and a spacious aft deck she also provides an abundance of outdoor areas for entertaining and relaxation.
Twin 3,180hp MTU diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles. Trac digital fin zero speed stabilisers provide ultimate comfort at sea.
Chiqui was asking $9,995,000.
