The 50m motoryacht Imagine, which was a joint listing with Merle Wood & Associates and IYC, has been sold for a final asking price of $22.9 million. She was originally listed for sale in September 2014, and, according to IYC listing broker Frank Grzeszczak, garnered significant attention during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this year.
Imagine is a semi-displacement tri-deck motoryacht with an aluminium hull and superstructure. She was built by Trinity Yachts in 2010, before the American shipyard was acquired by marine transportation company Harvey Gulf International Marine on 25 June 2015, to allow the struggling yard to continue its operations under the company’s shipbuilding affiliate Harvey Shipyard Group.
Imagine is said to be in immaculate condition after being privately operated only, and undergoing recent refit work. In spring this year, she underwent a five-year class survey, which among other works included: engine servicing, navigation equipment upgrades, and replacements to the four hydraulic rams for the stabilisers and the bow thruster leg gear.
She is able to sleep 10 guests over five staterooms that feature the interior design eye of Sylvie Charest, whose use of exotic stones, rich browns and neutral hues creates an environment rich in colour, well harmonised with the high gloss exotic woodwork of Genesis of Italy.
The owner’s master suite is full-beam and located on the main deck, encompassing a study, seating area, walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. There are an additional three staterooms and a twin stateroom on the deck below. Imagine will soon be available for charter.
She is fitted with two Caterpillar 3512B 1,678kW engines, allowing her to reach a maximum speed of 20 knots, a cruising speed of 18 knots and obtain a range in excess of 4,000 nautical miles.
