Fort Myers, Florida, United States
“SUP” is an example of American yacht building at its finest. Being one of the few full 24 ft beam Yachts built at Broward Shipbuilding in Ft. Lauderdale, this yacht incorporates modern designs and steadfast engineering. The wide beam maximizes the volume of the interior without giving up space for full walk around decks for crew line handling or just a deck stroll.
The main deck/salon feels very spacious and rivals much larger yachts. It is light and has full ocean views that are attributed to the upgraded oversized windows. The interior finish with the combination of the walnut trim and big windows is truly rich and light. She boasts 4 guest staterooms with private heads and crew quarters for 5. With a newly refurbished galley and a “eat in” country kitchen this is always a focal point of activity on the yacht.
The staterooms give this the quality of the suites in the finest hotels with the ability to change your location daily while be treated like royalty with one on one service. This is due to the ability to carry 2 to 1 crew ratio if you desire this level of service.
The aft deck and fly bridge areas allows guests to enjoy the outdoors with so much space that if one wants to have an “alone moment”, between the bow seating, the aft deck or the fly bridge you can be social or have that moments that make a lifetime of memories.
“SUP” is powered by twin DDEC 16V-92 Detroit diesel engines that provide a cruise speed of 16 knots and a top speed of 20 knots. With her large fuel tanks she has the legs to do the long hauls nonstop that is missing from so many yachts of her size built today. Also with her stabilization fins provide a safe stable ride. Her large water tanks and water maker make her have the ability for that extended stay on the anchor or in remote areas without the constant need to go to the dock for fuel or water. Imaging only fueling one time per season! The yacht is powered by 2- 50 KW Northern Lights generators which were completely rebuilt and the back ends redone in 2019 to give dependable support power.
“SUP” has separate 3 cabins for crew quarters forward and 1 engineer quarters aft so the owner and crew have their private space. Also aft is the toy storage space aft of the engine room for scuba tanks, bikes, fishing gear or any other items you wish to carry aboard. The saying “Happy Crew, Happy Owner” is easily achieved on this yacht due to the space and ease of maintenance of this vessel.
In the words of the current owner, this is What’s “SUP”! See for yourself how much value there is in this proven yacht without the $11,000,000 replacement price tag.
When you pull into the anchorage or marina, your yacht is big enough to go the distance but small enough to get into most places.
Support parts are easy to get when needed (as all are US) and access to all equipment is readily available which is not the case in most non-US built yachts. This your Captain will tell you cuts costs of operation. Plus being a US built hull she can be chartered in the US waters without issues.
“SUP” has so many positive attributes that they are too numerous to list this is truly a must see yacht.
