Superyacht Penguin for sale at Northrop and Johnson

28 July 2010 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

Andrew Cosgreave at Northrop and Johnson in Fort Lauderdale sends word that he's signed the 55m rebuild motor yacht Penguin for sale.

Penguin offers the perfect project for a client wanting to start their adventure as soon as possible, with completion possible in 14 months. Conversion started at Peters Scheepswerf and was halted when the owner bought a larger yacht to start his travels. Thus, he has moved on and this project can be bought for a fraction of his investment. This superyacht comes with copious amounts of equipment in mint condition and internal volumes can be increased exponentially with a little redesign work.

The former pilot station ship Kapitaen Hilgendorff, built in 1961 at the Schichau Seebeck Werft, she is being converted to a yacht with a helicopter landing platform, hangar, grand scale saloon, two bathing platforms at the side, as well as two sun decks with Jacuzzis. Every area of the yacht is being renewed to a full yacht finish, including hull fairing. Penguin is currently configured to accommodate 12 guests in a master suite plus five double staterooms and will take her new owners to any corner of the globe with a proven hull and state of the art technology. Her asking price is €7.95 million.
