by Malcolm Maclean
The 31.39 metre motor yacht Sea Filly, listed for sale by Charles Blickle at Denison Yachting, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Ralph Raulin and Chris June at Worth Avenue Yachts.
Built in GRP by Canadian yard West Bay Sonship to a design by Jack Sarin, Sea Filly was delivered in 2000 and recently refitted. An interior in American cherry wood by Leidy Vermeulen accommodates nine guests in four cabins laid out as a master suite, VIP suite, double and twin, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
The main deck saloon features a breakfast/gaming table and chairs to starboard, and an abundance of storage behind cherry cabinetry. Further aft, concealed in the cabinetry, is a 48-inch curved-screen Samsung television set on a rise and fall mechanism. To port are a matching sofa, love seat and chair, a large cocktail table and two occasional chairs. Forward is a country style kitchen offering a banquette diner for casual snacks through the day.
Aft through double sliding stainless steel doors is the aft deck, geared entirely for outdoor entertaining with a wet bar to port. Moulded bench seating and chairs surround a large table that comfortably seats 10 guests for al fresco dining and entertaining. Her top speed is 24 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 2,100 nautical miles at 12 knots with power coming from two 1,350hp MTU 12V2000M90 diesel electric engines.
Sea Filly was asking $2,850,000.
