Following a price reduction of €7 million on Sycara V earlier this month, we have a feeling of price reduction déjà vu. Merle Wood & Associates has also reduced the price on Sycara IV by $9.5 million. The 46.1m motoryacht is a joint listing with Burgess and is available for inspection in South Florida with a new asking price of $27.5 million.

Built for an experienced owner by American shipyard Burger Boat Company, her appearance exemplifies a tasteful and elegant 1920’s classic. But, as you would expect from a 2009 build, she also offers contemporary technology with a high quality finish; a claim supported by an award for her naval architecture, which was carried out in collaboration with Bruce King.

Ken Freivokh Design completed work to both the interior and exterior. Freivokh has handled a number of diverse projects ranging from private jets, automobiles and tender design, through to his current project in build, 141m Dream Symphony, which upon completion will be the largest sailing yacht in the world.

M/Y Sycara IV

Complementing her exterior, the interior of Sycara IV is classically styled and uses Madrone Burl with inlaid Macassar Ebony throughout the main salon, dining room and guest cabins. She has a dining area aft of the main deck leading to a spacious sun deck where guests can enjoy a seven-person hot tub. There is accommodation for up to nine guests over a master suite, VIP, double cabin and a twin cabin with a Pullman.

Sycara IV is fitted with two Caterpillar C18 600hp engines allowing for a maximum speed of 14 knots. At her cruising speed of 12 knots she can obtain a 4,500 nautical mile range.

Since Sycara IV, Burger Boat Company has only delivered 43.3m Sea Owl and 42.7m Lady Gayle Marine from their 30m+ fleet, with a further 31.6m motoryacht in build.
