Westport Motor Yacht Sheherazade For Sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 50 metre motor yacht Sheherazade has been listed for sale by Joe Majcherek at Gilman Yachts.
Shehrezade was built in GRP by US yard Westport with delivery in 2009 and is ABS classed and MCA compliant. She had a notable refit period through 2013/14 where she had an aft bridge deck extension, a major upgrade on the sundeck to include a larger Jacuzzi, dayhead, and multiple sunbeds, plus a complete interior refit, as well as numerous smaller improvements.
Westport’s design and engineering teams collaborated with world-renowned designer Donald Starkey and prominent naval architect William Garden to develop a refined hull form for exceptional ocean-going performance, an innovative accommodation plan which balances interior and on-deck spaces for maximum enjoyment and versatility, and a contemporary styling that ensures lasting appeal.
The six-stateroom layout with an on-deck full-beam master suite affords everyone a luxurious private retreat incorporating the finest fabrics, cabinetry, stone and leathers. An innovative arrangement includes a top-deck VIP suite with its own sun deck and a large formal dining room adjacent to the commercial-grade galley.
The centre buffet console found in the standard 50m Westport saloon layout has been removed, allowing this area a much more spacious and open feeling. Her top speed is 24 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,700 nautical miles at 12 knots with power coming from two 3,650hp MTU 16V4000M90 diesel engines.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Sheherazade is asking $26,000,000.
