3 months ($80,000) Renovation Remodeling modernization in Newport shipyard. As part of our commitment for pre purchase inspection we had survey done last month for entire vessel and all 3 engines and all maintenance and bow & stern thrusters and teak wood flooring new stove except bunch of hoses seals and wear tear materials! NOW AVERAGE LESS EXPERIENCED BOATER CAN MANEUVER PARK THIS BIG VESSELS EASY by using the joysticks for front bow thruster & even the back stern thruster.... This is a Big & tall Yacht 3 Floor 3 Bedrooms with 3 diesel engine The best of the best 2 twin Diamond edition Cummins. It has a massive interior volume, 6’7” headroom and excellent salon layout with “up” galley where you can see everything that is going on. A guest (or crew) stateroom 2 bed, 2 master bedrooms it has a walk around island guest bed which makes it easy to “make”. the other ones to get on bed you had to kneel on the bed or the decking beside it. It is also the most comfortable to lie on and I can attest to its comfort to sleep on as well. It goes without saying that the Master bed is just as comfortable. The third stateroom is a bonus, but may come in useful with some visitors who don’t necessarily want to share a bed. Unlike the other models with 3 “staterooms”, it is actually a real bedroom – small, but not a crawlspace. 2 large bathrooms in the master makes for a very large shower & actual tub. It is big enough that love couples both can take shower in it together (to conserve water, lol). It also has a long seat in case we get tired while showering. We are unlikely to ever use it as a bath. The exterior walkways are wide and the deck access easy from the bridge. There is also a pilothouse door for access to the deck from the salon/galley. There are no more than 4 stairs between levels and a really wide landing board Lots and lots of storage space – including for suitcases. There is plenty of room around the engines to work on them (although how you would ever get them out if you had to is anyone’s guess). 900 HORSEPOWER 900 Hours in 22 years equals to 3 hours a month, Urban Legend particularly stood out amongst other 453’s because of her age and condition – described by the Surveyor as “Excellent (Bristol) Condition – a vessel that is maintained in mint or Bristol fashion – better than factory new – loaded with extras - a rarity”. I liked the fact that she had, in effect, spent over 5 years of her 8 year life tucked up in heated shed out of the water and weather. To all intents and purposes she is a 3 year old boat. She has all the extras on our wishlist: Modern electronics, bow thruster, auto oil change system, Low hours (only 221), electronic engine controls, washing machine/drier, completely airconditioned, dinghy and outboard….. …and also a few that weren’t: Central vac, trash compacter, underwater exhausts, flybridge air conditioning (the only one that had it!), and even the cute wee remote “yacht controller” for docking (Italian made, I believe). She also has a hardtop over the flybridge, however all the finalists on the shopping list had this as well. Another bonus was the glassed in (not plastic) aft sundeck and the new plastic clear (Issinglass) screens on the flybridge, courtesy of a wee tornado that had come through the Kenosha marina over summer and shredded a few boats covers. These attributes are why she became the standard against which all the rest were measured.
